Music Review - Ek Tha Tiger
(This article is sponsored by Sounds Of India)
Ek Tha Tiger has created quite a stir with its music offering.
The album commences with a guest composition Mashallah by Sajid-Wajid. It is a fusion of middle-eastern music with a light techno background that is fine combination of urban and the exotic. Wajid’s desi vocals brings out a wonderful middle eastern flavor while Shreya’s husky and sensual rendition is sure to wow the audience. Benny Dayal impresses with the Arabic interlude. Kausar Munir’s lyrics are simple and lovely. The tracks remix unfortunately is not very good.
From the Middle East we move to Latin-American for inspirations in Laapata . It is composed using a lot of Cuban instrumentals. . K.K and newcomer Palak Muchhala do a fantastic job of rendering this song Anvita Dutt’s lyrics are impressive and this makes this decent track though may not quite hit the charts. The remixed version is again nothing to write home about.
Banjaara, a solo track featuring Sukwinder Singh is home to the familiar energy and style we witnessed in his renditions of Singham and Dabanngg that has a Celtic touch. It is reasonably situational in nature but unlike most situational numbers, it works independent of its onscreen counterpart relatively well. Bajaara also appears in the remix.
Saiyaara, is easily Sohail Sen’s masterpiece. We are back home in India and the music features traditional Indian instruments and music. It is an emotionally potent romantic number sung to perfection by Mohit Chauhan who is supported by Taraannum Mallik with equal grace and elegance. Well-penned lyrics are at the crux of the song’s appeal with a catchy chorus that surely touch a chord.
The album ends with the film’s theme music, entitled Tiger’s Theme. It is an adrenalin-filled piece that instrumentally demonstrates the feel of the film.
Overall a nice album though the remixes fail to hit the mark.
