Music Review(Hindi): Brothers

Music Review(Hindi): Brothers
Music Composer: Ajay-Atul

Brother Anthem is eponymous to its title, anthemic, energetic with exciting string sections and thumping percussions in the second interlude accentuate the overall feel of the song. The predictable tune is a owned totally by Vishal Dadlani with his verve and sprightly rendition. Gaaye Jaa is soothingly melodious and Shreya Goshal delivers it beautifully with her spot-on nuanced rendition. Ajay-Atul adorned the backgrounds with gorgeous violins, keys and ended the song with orchestration reaches crescendo  while at the same time gives haunting feel mainly due to humming. Gaaye Jaa's male version had Mohammed Irfhan behind the mic, Despite Irfhan's earnest effort, Shreya's version fares better than this. Sapna Jahan is another gorgeous melody where western classical rules the interludes especially lovely second one with flutes cum strings combo and  Indian classical tabla adorning the antaras. Sonu Nigam is particularly brilliant with his rendition while Neeti Mohan ably supported him. Mera Naam Mary is catchy item song rides mainly on the engaging vocals of Chinmayi and tune is quite a redux of chikni chameli.

Verdict: Two engaging melodies by composer duo makes the brothers album enjoyable.

My rating:7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Gaaye Jaa (female version), Sapna Jahan
