Music Review (Hindi): Dishoom

Music Review (Hindi): Dishoom
Music Composer: Pritam

Sau Tarah Ke's highlight is the Ashish Pandit's catchy hook line and the techno dance elements are adequately foot tapping while Amit Mishra and Jonita Gandhi fits the bill perfectly. Pritam mixed mild Arabic choir intermittently. Sau Tarah Ke's another version is an unwarranted listen. Toh Dishoom's highlight is easily Pawan Rasaily's guitar and the tune rides on the catchy factor rather than on the novel one while the haunting arrangements in the rhythms and interlude make this enjoyable. Raftar and Shahid Mallya's exuberant vocals and Mayur Puri's lyrics stands out. Jaaneman Aah is an addictive, funny Tamil kuthu meets Afghan Jalebi's arrangements. Nakash Aziz and Aman Trikha handles both versions effectually while Antara Mitra ably supports them in both versions. Ishqa's banal tune is made listenable with the intriguing arrangements with synth track, percussions and lovely strings. Abhijeet Sawant and Antara Mitra sounds apt in this pretty much ordinary track.

Verdict: Pritam opens his 2016 account with the pretty much insipid soundtrack which rides mainly on the catchy factor rather than on the memorable tracks.

My rating:6.5/10

Pick of the Album: Jaaneman Aah, Sau Tarah Ke
