Album Analysis :
Singers : Amit Trivedi
Already popular due to the promos, this is an impact song. We get to hear the usage of instruments like Sarangi – very rare for a bollywood song. The lyrics play an important role in this song. Credits to Swanand Kirkire for that. There is also increased usage of violins in the song. Amit Trivedi is a very underrated singer. We saw glimpses of his vocal brilliance in ‘Dhak Dhuk’(English Vinglish). He definitely strikes gold in this song in all departments.
Singers : Shruti Pathak, Divya Kumar
“Shubhaarambh” is the album’s brightest spot ! This is a Gujarati folk, fun song. Innovations using the bagpipes & shenais are top-notch. This song would go down in history as one of the finest renditions of Shruti Pathak. Her rendition in typical Gujarati slang deserves appreciation. Divya Kumar is good too. The “maza hain, nasha hain” segment is catchy right from the word go. Brilliant composition !
3. Meethi Boliyaan
Singers : Mili Nair, Amit Trivedi
This song is just magical ! Mili Nair’s singing is too good & Amit Trivedi just adds a feather to this already great song. The purposely kept pauses in the song do wonders. Very dreamy, slow song which anyone would prefer to hear at most times. When arrangements, vocals, beats, lyrics and everything else clicks then what ? We’d be treated with songs like this. Fantastic Composition !
*DrumRolls*— DevD, Ek Main Aur Ekk Tu, English Vinglish, Aisha, Aiyaa, Luv Shuv Tey Chicken Khurrana, Aamir, Ishaqzaade, Udaan ! Take a breath ! Amit Trivedi has given some phenomenal music in the past couple of years. The listeners are into something special whenever he comes up with an album. With Kai Po Che joining the list, he has straightaway sealed the current top spot & is all equipped to carry on a movie with his brand name alone. On comparisons with Mr. AR Rahman, I guess Amit Trivedi rests that topic with this album as of now. He has had an impressive past record, his present is rocking & the future is bright too.
Picks of the album : Why’d anyone wanna pick among the best ? It’s a delightful album.
Album Verdict : We are witnessing the transformation of a prodigy into a genius !
