The way it started, Aafton ke Parinde made me go check credits again. Suraj Jagan sounds almost like Sukhwinder Singh (or its just me). The best part of this song is its first interlude. This track itself sets the 'dusty, grungy' mood of the film. Next track is a complete different offering - Ishaqzaade. Javed Ali's smooth voice does complete justice to this dreamy track that is not extraordinary yet engaging because of the composition. Desi band baaja sound rocks Chhokra Jawaan, also a highlight of the track is the fun singer duo is having. Fantastic jugalbandi of Vishal and Sunidhi. Can't wait to see this on screen.
Pareshaan - is undoubtedly my most favorite from the soundtrack. Shalmali Kholgade's outstanding vocals and the loop of 'Pareshaan' plus the Harmonium sound - Fantastic. This is what I say Amit Trivedi is all about. Shreya's Jhalla Wallah (Jhalla means crazy) - is yet another UP Bihar ka mujra kind of song. But again - lyrics and singing makes it addictive. By the time the track reaches at midpoint - one starts singing along 'Jhalla...'. [this part reminds me of Happening-Main aur Mrs Khanna, though]
I had a feeling that this soundtrack will take time to grow on me (before I heard it), but after just 2 repeats, I am hooked to it. Especially Pareshaan and Ishaqzaade. Lovely lyrics in both by Kausar Munir.
Amit Trivedi, true 'music'zaada you are. Loved this offering.
