Anushka Sharma's debut production venture, NH 10
, in association with EROS International and Phantom Film, is a road trip thriller film. Music by a host of new and fresh talents and Sanjeev Darshan promises to be exciting and differently refreshing, especially considering that the album is an offering from top production houses like EROS, Phantom Films and Anushka.
' and 'Chiitiyaan Kaliyaan
' fame Kanika Kapoor shows a totally different side with the hard hitting 'Chhil Gaye Naina
' (Sanjeev Darshan) along with Dipanshu Pandit. Aptly describing the wounded and hopeless situation faced by the leads, the situational rock number is impressive.
Dark, haunting and daunting, the soft rock based lounge number, 'Le Chal Mujhe
' (Bann Chakraborty) rests totally on Mohit Chauhan's eclectic, slightly inebriated vocals and lovely background (western and Indian arrangements). The chorus, 'Kho jayeinge kahin, Ro ayeinge wahin
' is superb.
Arijit Singh's reprise number 'Le Chal Mujhe
' makes for a good repeat hear.
Shilpa Rao's imparts her own deft touches to the female version of 'Le Chal Mujhe
' is another version of 'Le Chal Mujhe
' but it's actually quite different in structure and mood. Actually it's a duet (Mohit Chauhan and Neeti Mohun), and is romantic and happy. CHECK OUT:NH10 Songs Lyrics
Anushka's 'Chaar Kadam
' (PK) still remains a favourite romantic number for many, and 'Main Jo
' (Ayush Shrestha and Savera Mehta) appears to be in the same lines. Light, frothy, cool and bubbly, the song has a unique fresh tune and is equally uniquely rendered by Nayantara Bhatkal and Savera Mehta.
The situational dramatic and thrilling 'Maati Ka Palang
' (refers to the grave) composed and sung well by Samira Koppikar fits in with the story and background of the film. Absolutely enthralling arrangements, hard hitting lyrics make for a somber hear.
' (Savera Mehta and Ayush Shresth) refers to the totally hopeless and desperate situation that the lead finds herself in and Rachel Verghes soft , whispering vocals with just a hint of piano in the background adds to that.
The audio of NH 10 is a brief one with just about four main songs, all situational. The compositions may not exactly hook on first hearing and there are no chartbusters but songs like 'Chhil Gaye Naina
' and 'Le Chal Mujhe
' and its versions do leave an impression. The numbers should attain prominence only after the release of the film on 13th March 2015. Music Review Rating Chart :-
