Viacom Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali Productions' venture, MARY KOM, a biopic on undoubtedly the greatest ever woman boxer of India, Mary Kom , might not exactly command sky high expectations, yet since SLB Productions have mostly provided popular and memorable music, one does expect the same from the Priyanka Chopra starrer. Music has been helmed by Shashi Suman and Shivamm Pathak with the lyrics department handled by Prashant Ingole and Sandeep Singh. So let's check out whether these lesser known but talented artists have on offer.
North East, read Manipuri (since Mary Kom hails from the beautiful hill state) music commences Shashi Suman's 'Ziddi Dil
' rendered superbly by Vishal Dadlani. The soft rock elements and a nice fresh tune adds to the charm. Lyrics by Prashant Ingole highlight the never say die character of the lead.
One never expected such a lovely romantic number in this album and is pleasantly surprised to come across Arijit's mesmerizing outing in the form of a soft love ballad, 'Sukoon Mila
'. Composer Shivamm Pathak does a great job, choosing a dew fresh, yet easy on the lips tune, and superb arrangements. Lyrics by Sandeep Singh are routine and filmy but they convey the feeling of romance well.CHECK OUT: MARY KOM Songs Lyrics
Shashi Suman's next outing, 'Adhure
', is another number that tugs at the heart with its heartfelt lyrics (by Prashant Ingole) and lovely flowing tune. A sad separation number that talks about broken promises and unsolved problems. The situational number is rendered to sublime perfection by Sunidhi. North East music adds to the somber melancholy charm of the song.
The rock based motivational and inspirational number, 'Teri Baari
' by Shashi Suman, might be cliched in its musical arrangements and lyrics (Prashant Ingole) but the overall effect of the song is good. Mohit Chauhan does a great job.
Arjit comes back for another lovely romantic outing, 'Saudebaazi',
by Shashi Suman which holds attention due to of course, Arijit's charming addictive vocals, nice, simple lyrics (Prashant Ingole) and a good tune. Lovely harmonica and guitar and other percussions give the song that romantic touch required.
A superb patriotic number, 'Salaam India
' that is not only motivational in nature but extremely heart touching as well is composed by Shivamm Pathak. And is sung by two composers and great singers as well, Vishal Dadlani and Saleem Merchant. The all rock touch to the song coupled with superb situational lyrics by Sandeep Singh all conjure up a great number. CHECK OUT: Priyanka Chopra thrilled to see people's reaction on MARY KOM
Priyanka Chopra's singing skills are by now world famous and so it does not surprise to hear her rendering a song in the album. She is simply superb in the Shashi Suman composed lori 'Chaoro
' (lyrics by Sandeep Singh) which is soothing and pleasing to the ears.
Summing up, one has to admit that the fresh and relatively new composers and lyricists have done a very good job. They have provided music which aids in the narrative and yet is pleasing to the ears. 'Sukoon Mila
' and 'Salaam India
' are our picks. The situational songs will attain more popularity after the film releases all over on 5th September, quite like the album of another sports biopic, BHAAG MILKHA BHAAG.Music Review Rating Chart :-
