Daas Dev (Music review), Hindi – Assorted composers

Posted by Karthik

Atif Aslam-led Sehmi hai dhadkan has a somber, deeply engaging tune that Vipin Patwa orchestrates really well, with a soaring hook that demands a lot from the singer and thankfully, he delivers pretty well. Vipin’s other song featuring Bulle Shah’s verse, Tain to uttey has another Pakistani singer, Javed Bashir, who is equally good, with the song’s pulsating rock hook otherwise set to a lively folk sound, straight out of a Coke Studio Pakistan episode. Arko’s lone contribution, Rangdaari, is not bad, but in comparison, seems too templatized. Anupama Raag’s short Azaad kar has an earthy sound enhanced by Swanand Kirkire’s winsome vocals. Shamir Tandon’s Marne ka shauk gains a lot from Sameer Anjan’s lyrics and the swaggering backgrounds. The soundtrack’s best, though, are from composer Sandesh Shandilya! In Challa chaap chunariya, he ropes in Rekha Bhardwaj for a lilting psychedelic electro-pop that sounds absolutely lovely with the occasional sarangi thrown in! Raat din yunhi‘s sprawling sound is a fantastic listen too, with Papon and Shradha Mishra adding to the exhilarating expanse of the song’s soundscape, complete with a superb sax base. Daas Dev is a surprisingly cohesive and highly listenable soundtrack, despite employing five different composers for seven songs!
