Music Review (Hindi) : Raman Raghav 2.0

Music Review (Hindi) : Raman Raghav 2.0
Music Composer: Ram Sampath


Quatl-E- Aam has an eccentric techno package soundscape with addictive electronic sounds mixed in a brilliant manner especially loved the konnakol bits and Yash Divecha's coarse vocals give the gloomy touch to the overall song. Ram Sampath's brilliant tabla beats weaved around the incredible persuasive Sona Mohapatra's vocals. The tune's melodic base becomes prominent in the unplugged version where once again Sona Mohapatra's impeccable rendition holds the song along with Pawan Rasaily's guitar strums. 

Behooda's enigmatic and James Bond'ish techno sounds layered with wonderful string sections sounds awesome in Nayantara Bhatkal's husky vocals while Viveine Pocha and Nalini Krishnan lends adequate support. Paani ka Raasta's soulful tune is elevated by Siddharth Basrur's pitch-perfect rendition while Ram Sampath rules the background starting from lilting guitar laden backdrop to frisky soft rock end with undermined frenzied violin sections in the background. Ram Sampath ends the intriguing soundtrack in style with intense techno Raman Raghav theme where manic techno beats hold the track very well whereas composer teases the listeners with mighty innovative sarangi solos in the middle of the exciting techno package.

Verdict: Anurag Kashyap continues to extract the best work from the music director in his movies. Anurag's first collaboration with Ram Sampath also turns out to be the winner with thrilling techno package sounds throughout the album.

My rating: 8/10
