Pink (Music review), Hindi – Anupam Roy, Shantanu Moitra and Faiza Mujahid

Jeenay de mujhe, by Pakistani rocker Faiza Mujahid, literally screams women’s emancipation, in the Bryan Adams rock mode. The second Pakistani connection of the soundtrack is Qurat Ul Ain Balouch (or, QB) singing Shantanu Moitra’s poignant tune in Kaari kaari. The song’s rock turn mid-way and the veena-like interlude seem like questionable choices, however. Anupam Roy’s Latino-pop title song is odd, at best, but he redeems himself totally with the soundtrack’s best Tujhse hi hai roshni, with its lovely alternative rock sound à la Rob Thomas/Matchbox Twenty, besides singing it pretty darn well too. Pink’s soundtrack lacks color, overall, though.
