Jayesh Gandhi, a consistent musical icon in Himesh Reshammiya?s film albums graduates into big chair along with new talent Raiomond Mirza in spy thriller espionage MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER. The soundtracks are raucously voluble about the deceitful and conspicuous situational proceedings with tracks like ?Woh Bheege Pal?, ?Tere Saawalon ke? and ?Dhundla Jo Sama Bandha? offering affable grounding for its uncharacteristic theme and characters. Both composers excel as per offered desired situations and have their share of successes in urbane-friendly soft-pitched rock compositions.
?Dhokha?, an iconical harmonic presentation of all deceit and intrigue pertaining to structural plot of MANORAMA SIX FEET UNDER comes in the gruffly paced vocals of folksy Richa Sharma. Fresh composer Raiomond Mirza delivers a penchant background soundtrack, akin to RGV?s styled horrifying tales, with light hearted percussive elements and infused brief evocative monologue (Abhay Deol) in its interludes.
Raiomond Mirza has Sufi surprise in melancholically arranged and delectably emoted soundtrack ?Dhundla Jo Sama Bandha?, by briskly voluble Kailash Kher in his sentimental tones and overtones. Irfan Siddiqui?s penetrative lyrical work depicts the vicissitudes of life where Kailash Kher?s modulating ?linguistics? abilities works magical surprises. It?s classy treat for Sufi lovers and probably an affable commodity for niche listeners.
The emotional commotion of enchanting and perplexed romantic hues and cries is embarked remarkably with soppy ?n? squashy lyrical deliverance, refined vocals and inspiring music in idealistic ?Tere Saawalon Ke?. Unlike two previous subjective tracks, it?s more inclined towards the beleaguered romanticism well governed by Manoj Tapadia?s momentous lyrical flow. Roop Kumar Rathod?s authoritatively classical vocals are well suited for its melancholic flow with impressive Mahalaxmi Iyer?s adding graceful feminine dash in her silken display. Jayesh Gandhi?s musical intellect brainchild?s it supremely in binding all the ingredients into presentable decorum.
The sets are close to real and the lighting perfect which sets off the mood. Right from Abhay?s home to his furnishings to the clothes he and his wife wear are very real, befitting the salary of a government employee. Even the tiffs between the two are well shot. In fact, the two give it a real feel with their natural acting. Both Gul and Abhay excel here. Abhay with his nonchalant approach, and Gul with her sucking in the demands of the scene. This is one actress who understands the requirement of a scene and moves in to blend with the shot. Nothing ostentatious, simply effective, that is how you can describe the performance of both, Gul and Abhay.
To be honest, the script does not do justice to the collective talent of Abhay Deol, Gul Panag, Raima Sen and Vinay Pathak, all of who are brilliant actors. Raima in particular is falling into a trap. Either her selection of roles is wrong or she is not getting the right offers.
Another factor that is bound to work against the movie is the only ?two-show per day? schedule. Clearly, there are not going to be a lot many takers. With this move, it looks like the makers have ensured that Manorama, does go six feet under, even before the first few days!Ratings:2/5
