Music Review - Shaurya

The first track has helped create a most wonderful promo with none other King Khan himself reciting the words. Javed Akhtar words “ Mazhab ke banaye dayere ko tod kar, Kisi ka haath tham lene ki himmat, Goliyonn ki betahasha shorr ko, Appni khamoshi se Chunauti de pane ki himmat, Marti maarti is duniya mein nnihaathe datte rehne ki himmat, Shaurya Kya hai? recited in Shah Rukh Khan’s voice  has a powerful impact and is bound to bring people to the movies.
 
We move from the powerful to the sentimental in the next track "Dheere Dheere" with a romantic number rendered by Sunidhi Chauhan and Adnan Sami.  The song is a blend of soft rock , blues and Jazz. The word “smooth” does come into mind as you listen to the silky voice of Sunidhi Chauhan enmeshed with Adnan’s own sweet and sentimental voice. One gets a few glimpses of his melody from “Shaayad Yahi to Pyar” (LUCKY – NO TIME FOR LOVE).

It has been a while since we heard a “Dosti” song.  Perhaps the last powerful one was the “yeh dosti song”. While I am not sure 'Dosti Kya Hai" can compete in the same league, Udit Narayan and Abhijeet have done a wonderful job in successfully bringing out the spirit of friendship and camaraderie. The upbeat orchestrations packs a punch into the piece and Sami should be proud of this nice number.
 
Hip-hop disco beat fillers take center stage in “Ghabra Ke Dar Dar Ke”. Sunidhi Chauhan maintains her brilliant form in this energizing peppy track with oozing Sami’s rendition mixing well with groovy beats, sensuous chorals, electronically punched orchestrations that makes mood bizarre.  A sure hit with Gen-X

“Jaane Kyon Jaaneman”, has a seductive Sunidhi Chauhan in typical disco mode. It delves into stereotypical raunchy disco tracks terrain where racy hip-hop along with bouncy disco beat fillers hits the floors with big bang. It is a light hearted number that could light up a party late at night.

A tribute to valor would have perhaps been a better title for "Shurya".  Being the title track it really brings home the point about gallantry, chivalry and in a preachy tone sells, Shaurya or valor.  Again the brilliant orchestration and the wonderful and powerful voice of Kunal Ganjawala makes this a promising track. Overall Shaurya has a lot to offer and we may see some numbers become chartbusters.
