A Vishesh Film venture, KHAMOSHIYAN
, said to be inspired from the classic iconic horror, MAHAL (which had superlative music), naturally carries humongous expectations. And with the new generation hit composers, Ankit Tiwari and Jeet Gannguli, leading the way along with new entrants, Bobby Imran and Naved Zafar, one is confident of a musical explosion of a silent kind, as said by Vikram Bhatt himself.
It is silent a explosion all right as one gets engulfed into the deep, haunting rockish musical explosion of a kind never heard before with the 'Khamoshiyan
' title track. Arijit is simply spellbinding, with the lyrics fitting like hand in glove. Jeet Gannguli comes up with a fresh tune and the arrangements are class and so is the crescendo where Arijit goes 'Khamoshiyan
Arijit's 'Khamoshiyan' unplugged makes for a delightful repeat hear.
Bobby Imran's 'Tu Har Lamha
' starts of as 'Juda Ho Ke Bhi
' from 'Aadat
' (KALYUG) but thankfully changes track and results in a lovely soulful, sad romantic ditty. Just as the title track, the crescendo is engaging as is Arijit's rendition. While 'Tu har Lamha
' might not exactly carry the 'Tum Hi Ho
' (AASHIQUI 2) anthem feel (or its repeat value) but is a chartbuster for sure!Also Read KHAMOSHIYAN songs lyrics
'Tu Har Lamha
' remix by DJ Angel is space filler but sounds good as long as it lasts.
' is another version of 'Tu Har Lamha
' with different lyrics. An all-out romantic track sung well by Anupam Amod and Imran Ali and together they provide the album with the variety that was missing.
A very heart touching melodic experience awaits in the form of 'Baatein Ye Kabhi Na
', which appears in two versions, male and female, rendered by Arijit Singh and Palak. While the song may fade in comparison to the above two chartbusters, but as a standalone it is a good composition by Jeet.
New entrant Naved Zafar excels with his very first composition 'Kya Khoya
', which is a superb motivational composition that urges the lead to go on in life and not give a damn about the world or the bad, sad past and look for an utopian world. Lyrics and musical arrangements need to be commended.
A passionate, intense composition, 'Bheegh Loon
' composed by Ankit Tiwari is rendered well by Prakriti Kakar whose sweet vocals are an added asset. Moreover she does not go overboard by trying to sound amorous with husky vocals. The song fits with the erotic thriller mood of the film.Also Read KHAMOSHIYAN actress Sapna Pabbi: Heroines in Bhatt camp are not just for erotica
The male version of 'Bheegh Loon
' is well sung by Ankit himself.
' remix makes for a more club worthy dance experience type number.
Summing up, the album of KHAMOSHIYAN does come up trumps meeting the expectations it carried, with all the composers putting their best foot forward. The title track 'Tu Har Lamha
' and its version 'Subhan Allah
' as also 'Kya Khoya
' are our picks. The hit album should help this erotic thriller sail through at the ticket window when it releases all over on January 30, 2015. Rating: 4/5Music Review Rating Chart :-
