Rating: 3/5 Stars (Three stars)
Music Director/s: Mithoon
Ajay Devgn’s directorial Shivaay is all set to hit the theaters this Diwali. The film also marks the debut of Polish actress Erika Kaar and also Sayyeshaa Saigal. While the film is all set for a box office clash with Ae Dil Hai Mushkil, the film’s music certainly plays a big role. The latter has already enjoyed enough buzz on the music front, here’s looking at what Shivaay‘s music is.
The music has been composed by Mithoon and Jasleen Royal.
Here’s a look at the Shivaay songs:
1. Bolo Har Har – Shivaay Music Review
The title song of Shivaay, Bolo Har Har had impressed us pretty much in the trailer itself. Taking off with Mohit Chauhan’s vocals crooning ‘Aag Bahe‘, this song transitions further into rap by Baadshah and also supporting vocals from Sukhwinder Singh, Megha Sriram Dalton & Anugrah. The song is trippy, upbeat and has high chances of catching up with a younger audience.
2. Darkhaast – Shivaay Music Review
An out and out romantic number, Darkhaat sung by Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan is a sweet melody. The song is a signature Bollywood number and hence is expected to make it to the top charts. The musical setting of the song, does remind us in bits and parts of Atif Aslam’s popular number Yakeen. Darkhaast may not enjoy much longevity but will be strong enough till the film’s buzz remains.
3. Raatein – Shivaay Music Review
Composer Jasleen Royal recently shot to fame with her songs Nach De Ne Saare and Kho Gaye Hum Kahan in Baar Bar Dekho. She scores one song in Shivaay‘s petite album. Raaetin is a cutesy number that is slow on beats but the a major problem is its huge similarity to Kho Gaye Hum Kahan. This is an average number from the album.
There is also a reprise version for this song and I found that much better than the original. It is more intense and feels like it will have a lasting impact once played in the theaters.
4. Tere Naal Ishqa – Shivaay Music Review
Tere Naal Ishqa comes across as a very different song from the rest of the album. Crooned by Kailash Kher whose vocals bend well with the musical setting, there is something missing about this number. We can expect the video to make a difference. It is not one of the best songs from the album but certainly not the worst either.
Last Word – Shivaay Music Review
The soundtrack of Shivaay is quite decent. From the five songs of the album, Har Har Bolo, Darkhaast definitely stand out. Considering the film’s genre doesn’t seem like it will require a lot of songs, this may be the best choice by Ajay. A 3/5 for the Shivaay album.
