The two singers have sung their versions of the same song. So lets check out as to who touched our hearts better…
Ekta Kapoor has collaborated with Aashiqui 2 director Mohit Suri for the first time for the Sidharth Malhotra-Riteish Deshmukh-Shraddha Kapoor starrer Ek Villain. As can be expected from a Mohit Suri film, this film too has some superb songs, which have been composed by various musicians. The most popular of them all is Galliyan, which has two versions. So lets see as to who scored in which department.
Composed and sung by Ankit Tiwari, this song was the first track to be released of the film. This super romantic song is dripping with melody and to top it all Ankit’s mellifluous voice made this song a must have in all music players. The song begins on a high note with lot of lead guitar playing in the backdrop, and mellows down to just the base guitar playing along with some flute, percussion and rhythmic beats. Ankit plays well not just with his voice but also with the music arrangement, which is undoubtedly fantastic.
When we heard the unplugged version sung by Shraddha (and ably supported by Ankit), this song seemed to be even better. Shraddha’s voice is good but it is not because of her voice that you fall in love with this song. This is an unplugged version which has minimal instruments, which is the USP of the song. Listening to the unplugged version makes you realise that a song can be melodious even without using a lot of heavy metal instruments.
Mohit Suri needs to be well applauded for having such a keen sense of music. It seems he had very aptly described to Ankit the characters of the film before he asked him to come up with a romantic song. The original Galliyan is a guy’s (Sidharth) description of falling in love. It, no doubt, is romantic but has a lot of harsh background music in it, which portray the guy’s dark and murky past. On the other hand the Galliyan unplugged is a girl’s (Shraddha) definition of love. It is sweet, soft and plays more on melody, thereby portraying that the girl is very carefree and loves to live life to the fullest. Now we leave it onto you as fans to pick your definition of love and associate your feelings to that version of Galliyan.
