Music Review (Hindi): Shaandaar

Music Review (Hindi): Shaandaar
Music Composer: Amit Trivedi

       Gulaabo, already released as a single is downright fun track with Vishal Dadlani and Anvitta Dutt behind the mic with sprightly rendition. Amit Trivedi arrangements dominated by horn sections with occasional Dhols blends well with the tone of the song. In Shaam Shaandaar, Amit traverses from Dhol beats to techno dance themed sounds, but jiff of composer's earlier songs are unavoidable which is partly due to Amit Trivedi's singing. 

      Nazdeekiyaan has trademark Amit Trivedi's composition stamp all over it right from the tune and the way song progresses. Neethi Mohan and Nikhil Paul George breezes through the laid back composition (which reminds me behroopia)  in an effectual manner. Amit trivedi gives totally different type of song to Arijit Singh in Senti Wali mental while Neeti Mohan and Swanand Kirke ably supported him in this 9 minutes fun filled song. However highlight of the song is undeniable brilliant use of Saaz especially towards the start and end of the song while dhols and percussion dominate the remaining portions of the song. Overall fitting Sangeet song to the wedding based movie with amusing lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Another wedding based song Raitaa Phailgaya in the vocals of Divya Kumar and the song is pretty much functional track both in terms of tunes and also arrangements.

Verdict: Vikas Bahl's second outing with Amit Trivedi is not as effective as their previous combination, but still this one is funny and enjoyable listen.

My rating: 8/10

Pick of the Album: Nazdeekiyaan, Senti Wali Mental, Gulaabo
