Music Review(Hindi) : Drishyam

Music Review(Hindi) : Drishyam
Music Composer: Vishal Bhardwaj



Carbon copy is a cool, laid back guitar laden track and the song has Vishal's stamp all over it. Ash King carries the beautiful tune with improvs in his rendition. whistles interpersed generously and gels well with the flow of the track. Dum Ghutta Hai is a kind of gloomy composition and the mood elevates much with the title hook. Vishal Baradwaj's arrangements are splendid especially Ghatam laden second interlude and Guitar strums throughout the song. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Rekha Baradwaj are splendid with their vocals but Rekha's singing sounds repetitive and the magic in her voice is surprisingly missing. Kya Paata is another serious track which rides mainly on the soulful rendition of Arijit Singh and also this is the kind of track Vishal frequently delivers with perfection. Vishal entices the listeners with mild jazz flavoured arrangements in the background especially brilliant usage of oboe/clarinet in the second interlude. Kya Pataa comes in another hard rock version as Kab Kahaan Se with thumping guitars and drum laden arrangements. But still soulful Arijit's version works well than grungy KK's version.

Verdict: Vishal delivers yet another engaging album but this one still ranks lower than the composer's previous works.

My rating : 7.5/10

Pick of the Album: Kya Pataa, Carbon Copy, Dum Ghutta Hai
