Music review(Hindi): Mirzya

Music review( Hindi): Mirzya
Music composer : Shankar Eshaan Loy, Daler Mehendi

          The title track has an enticing sound mixing with horse foot stomping sounds and thumping enchanting percussions by Taufiq Quereshi. The orchestral brilliance aside, the sing has a fantastic support in the form of vocal powerhouses Daler Mahendra, Sain Zahoor and Nooran Sisters. Naveen ends the track with stunning flute piece. Teen Gawah's melody is amped up by lovely salvation singer chorus and Siddharth Mahadevan handles the tune effortlessly with his vocals while Abhay Rumde and Loy provides support with Dimdi and bass respectively. Sain Zahoor lends rustic touch with his brief portions. In Chakora, SEL churns out a winner with the impressive techno sounds mixed with rural synthesised sounds and once again the singers prop up the song to fantastic level especially Mame Khan and Schusismita Das. Aave Ra Hitchki is SEL's response to Coke Studio kind of songs and the fabulous vocals of Shankar Mahadevan and Mame's  is accompanied by phenomenal arrangements topped by Neil Mukherjee's splendid Guitar work and mighty packaging of assorted ear pleasing sounds in the background.
          
Hota Hai is foot tapping song with absolutely stunning sarangi mix and Nooran Sisters incredibly punchy vocals and the chorus mix followed by the engaging beats in the second half is the highlight. Ek Nadi Thi offers another musical high in the album and the song features once again engrossing vocals from Nooran Sisters and Mohan while SEL adorned the soothing tune with lovely guitars. SEL pushes the boundaries further in Doli re Doli where the trio mixes the beautiful time with the jazzy background touches with standout solos from Victor's Trumpet and Shankar's melodica. Shankar Mahadevan handles the tune like a pro. The trio ends the musical extravaganza with truly grand symphonic brilliance Kaaga and it's delight to listen Kaushiki Chakraborty's classically rich vocals and absolutely loved the way her classical sargams are followed by similar sounding string sessions. The song could have been made as a full-fledged one. The thematic pieces composed by Daler Mehendi featuring the vocals of  the composer himself elevate the grandness of the soundtrack.

Verdict: Shankar Eshaan Loy delivers the sheer variety of songs for Mehra's Mirzya and the soundtrack is undeniably best one released thus far this year with rich folk orchestration and awesome line of singers in vocal front.

My rating: 9/10

Pick of the album: Just listen whole album you won't regret.
