 Sawar Loon

Singers : Monali Thakur

This is a vintage 50’s composition reminiscent of good old days.Monali Thakur pulls off a Latha Mageshkar easily.The song already grabbed lot of eyeballs from the promos & looks like this is all set to become a fan-favorite number.The lyrics depict a girl’s dream & desire written brilliantly by Amitabh Bhattacharya.Whiff of vintage melody !

Ankahee

Singers : Amitabh Bhattacharya

Amitabh Bhattacharya dons the singer’s hat as well here.’Ankahee’ is an instantly likeable,hummable song sung in a precise manner by the lyricist.As light as the tune may sound,this song is sure to leave the listeners in a spate of mixed emotions.The second best track in the album !

Shikayatein

Singers : Amitabh Bhattacharya,Mohan Kanan

Amit Trivedi goes soft-rock ! Barring the initial resemblance to tracks from Udaan,this one’s a carefully composed number with fabulous attention being given to details.The chorus portions gel so well with the background & literally,steal the show in an otherwise evenly paced number.There is also an undercurrent of electric guitar in the interlude & end portions.But,fans of Rachel Portman – We Had Today might have something else to say !

Monta Re

Singers : Amitabh Bhattacharya,Swanand Kirkire

Swanand Kirkire,fresh from the success of Barfi joins hands with Amitabh Bhattacharya in this unique number.’Monta Re’ really gives the listeners a nostalgic,philosophical feel despite the song carrying a Bengali cloud around it.Sure to evoke ‘Once upon a time….’ moments !

Zinda

Singers : Amit Trivedi

Another Udaan’ish track ! When you start hearing a tune such as this,you could very well start imagining Amit Trivedi singing it.The guitar riffs have been brilliantly used in this track.The number gears a level up during the end high-pitched portions.Has relatively modern arrangements & underplays the 50’s setting.

Manmarziyan

Singers : Amitabh Bhattacharya,Amit Trivedi,Shilpa Rao

The best track in the album! “Manmarzian” is a delight to hear with near perfect vocals by Shilpa Rao.The song does indeed leave a strong impact once its over.Will Bollywood get a song like this in near future with no loud,jarring instruments & ‘trying to be western’ rap portions ? I don’t think so.Atleast not in the near future.Cherish this track – the less said,the more you could enjoy.

Picks of the album : Every song’s a gem !

Album Verdict : Take a trip to the 50’s with Amit Trivedi’s magic ! Style with Subtlety !
