Produced by: Sunil A Lulla and Viki Rajani
Starring: Neil Nithin Mukesh and Sonal Chauhan
Horror movies are one of those genres that are explored plenty but are seldom successful. Most resort to a tried and tested, clichéd version that just gets the audience groaning in their seats rather than terrified. This upcoming movie starring Neil Nithin Mukesh and Sonal Chauhan hopefully breaks the jinx and has a compelling and an edgy storyline that will surprise or more like scare us. The music is composed by Mithoon and the analysis-
|Kaise Bataaoon||Mithoon, Sonal Chauhan|
|Khalbali||Arijit Singh, Tochi Raina, Shilpa Rao|
|Kaise Bataaoon (Cantabile)||Abhishek Nailwal|
|Khalbali (Punjabi)||Tochi Raina|
1. Kaise Bataaoon:
The album opens up with a sweet rendition by Mithoon and Sonal Chauhan, who does a pretty fabulous job in her debut. The song has a pleasant melody with a mellow acoustic guitar and soothing tempo which doesn’t let you sleep so all in all a very good opening track and has a tremendous scope for a beautiful picturization.
I love the singers in this song
who take this song to a new level. The song is upbeat and energetic but in a very subtle way hence the difference in the initial expectations of the song and the way it actually turns out will grab attention. Rustic yet melodious, one of my favourites in the album.
A slow track, perhaps situational showing confusion and angst. Adnan Sami’s voice is pretty powerful in this track and the music is pretty traditional with a little twist here and there. Not amazing but might go with flow of the movie.
4. Kaise Bataaoon (Cantabile):
This version is sung by Abhishek Nailwal and has some clever chorus and minimal background music but then has a charm of its own. A pretty good listen, especially because of the way the song is almost entirely dependent on the chorus and the singer and they do a pretty neat job of that.
5. Khalbali (Punjabi):
Yes, yes every movie needs a Punjabi-inspired track yaada yaada, but Tochi Raina armed with his powerful voice and a more sombre mood and does a really good job. The musical arrangements are almost the same but there is a little difference with the feel and mood.
6. 3G (Theme):
An instrumental track that begins with a cell phone ringing and then progresses onto some fast music. Does not exactly remind you of a horror movie until the very end but it still manages to somewhat get your adrenaline rushing, perhaps with the movie and in a theatre, might be really effective.
Overall the album is pretty good and is worth a listen. Most tracks have a good feel and good arrangements.
Verdict: Not bad at all!
