CityLights title track: Ustad Rashid Khan and Usha Uthup bring forth a racy song which is full of fusion beats

Hansal Mehta, Rajkummar Rao and Patralekha depict the tone and theme of the movie pretty well through this song

The makers of CityLights have come up with the latest track from the film, and the video seems to have a haunting eerie feel to it. The video has been made from clipping from the film and with a lot of fast forward effects, the dark underbelly of Mumbai has been represented pretty well via the song.

Sung by Ustad Rashid Khan and Usha Uthup, this is the fusion styled title track of the film. It is Khan’s classical vocals and the heavy deep voice of Uthup that bring this song to life. Ustad’s classical alaaps are to die for, while Usha’s unique vocals provide the perfect racy feel to the song. It is their jugalbandi that creates one hell of a dhamaka.

However, there is a shortcoming. Jeet Gannguli’s composition will seamlessly blend into the screenplay of the film but will not be something that you would want to listen to after coming out the theaters. This might definitely provide an emotionally thrilling end to the racy film, but will not stay in your mind for long like Rashid and Uthup’s previous hits.
