Music Review (Hindi) : PK

Music Review (Hindi) : PK
Music Composer: Shantanu Moitra, Ajay-Atul, Ankit Tiwari

Ajay Atul's Tharki Chokri is a folkish tune sung with enough ecstacy by Swaroop Khan and chorus however arrangements reminiscent of heard before templates with occasional brass section being the novelty additions to the flow of the song. In Nanga Punga Dost , Shreya Goshal enjoys singing the unhurried tune with rhyming lyrics by swanand kirkire. The violin solos and the guitar strums in the arrangement is particularly beautiful in tandem with the easy go mood of the song. Chaar Kadam, is a breezy ballad song in lines of Parineeta's Piyu bole (by same composer) and many other songs however vocals by Shaan and soothing singing by Shreya Goshal makes it listenable despite deja-vu factor associated with the song. Love is a waste of time is also given the similar treatment like Chaar Kadam with Violin- accordion combo stands out apart in orchestration. Singing by Sonu Nigam and Shreya goshal apt for the pleasant retro tune. Bhagawan Hai Kahan Re Tu, except for some progreesive interludes is laborious listen despite earnest rendition by Sonu Nigam. Ankit Tiwari's guest composition Dil Darbadar's tune confined to the Aashique 2 territory results in the bland song of the soundtrack except for some nice touches by string instrument (mandolin I think).


Verdict: Rajkumar Hirani's PK has some sweet compositions tainted by the deja vu feelings associated with the songs.

My rating:7/10

Pick of the Album: Nanga Punga Dost, Love is a waste of time, Tharki Chokri
