And now, Kolkota has got its own song too. Actually two songs are there in Kahaani, composed by Vishal-Shekhar, that represents the city of joy. Aami Shotti Bolchi (means I'm telling the truth) is a mix of retro plus hard rock. And what a mix ! Usha Uthup makes this track outrageously addictive. While another track, dedicated to the city, is more in-line with the storyline - Kahaani sung by K.K. and Vishal has that melodious tune with interesting lyrics [that involves 'taxi' and 'tram' !]. Absolutely loved this one. The 'unplugged' version by Shreya pales against the one by KK.
VS already gave two supreb fusion tracks in Ra-One. This time they get a step further. With two, full fledged fusion tracks. Piya tu Kaahe Rootha Re by Javed Bashir is vocal delight with altering antaras and striking climax. Continued sound of 'manjeera' haunts the track throughout. While Tore Bina by ever dependable Sukhwinder Singh, is a lyrical delight. (Finally, I'm impressed by Anvita Dutt). And the finale is as strong as the start. The masterpiece by Rabindranath Tagore - "Ekla Cholo Re" (means walk alone) - sung by Amitabh Bachchan - gave me goosebumps from the first line itself. Overwhelming composition and singing. Totally fell for it. (Here is the translation of the song)
Do not miss this fantastic transformation of the composer duo.
