Director Bhushan Patel of Ragini MMS 2 fame, is back with yet another horror flick with lot of erotic scenes. This time he has collaborated with horror queen of Bollywood Bipasha Basu, who shares screen space with heart throb of TV world, Karan Singh Grover. With just days before Alone sees the light, we decided to give it's music a hear and see how the collaboration of four different music directors for four different songs, has turned out
The album kicks off with romantic number Katra Katra, sung melodiously by controversial singer Ankit Tiwari and Prakriti Kakkar. This song has already gained some popularity for the smoking hot chemistry between Karan Singh Grover and Bipasha Basu. Katra Katra starts of with mild guitar strumming followed by sexy vocals of Prakriti Kakkar, paving way for soulful voice of Ankit Tiwari, who also happens to have rendered this romantic track. There are beautiful flute pieces throughout the song, interestingly interspersed with slow techno beats and mild orchestration. The sounds of crickets added at one point in the song adds nice flavour in building the atmospherics of the song. In short, this song might not be Sun Raha Hai Na Tu from Aashiqui 2, which gave Ankit Tiwari fame, but Katra Katra is soulful enough to become the hot favourites of melody lovers all over the nation.
Following Katra Katra, is yet another slow love ballad, from Mithoon, who turns music director and lyrics. Sung by Altamash Faridi and Saim Bhatt, Awaara starts off with high pitched locals of Altamash followed by heart wrenchingly beautiful piano piece. Later on, when the song changes gears, Saim Bhatt chips in, with guitar and drums ably supporting him. There is catchy electric guitar riff too which caught my attention. Mithoon has a habit of churning out chat busters and with Awaara, he has delivered a winner yet again. This beautifully rendered song is by far the best song in the album.
Chand Aasmano Se Laapata
The song starts of with an interesting mix of guitar riffs and synthesiser, which guides the melodious vocals of Bhaven Dhanak. Composed by Jeet Ganguli, Chand Aasmano Se Laapata is a sweet romantic track sung in some style by Bhaven Dhanak, that it reminded me of Abhijeet's vocals. The song picks up it's tempo a bit time and again with beautiful mix of guitar riffs, beats and synthesiser sound. With this song being the third romantic number in the album, one can't help but feel that the music of Alone is getting monotonous.
Touch My Body
As soon as the song starts, you would be taken over by the feeling of Deja Vu, and you would find yourself saying ' Hey, I have heard that tune before' . You guessed it right, Dr Zeus famous song Kangana has been revisited in Alone, which proves to be a welcome break from the series of romantic numbers dominating the album. Peppy vocals of Aditi Singh Sharma adds a new zing to the song, which has been remixed by Raghav Sachar adding funky sounds to the original song. In short, this party number is no chartbuster but it sure can make you groove to its tunes.
With four different composers joining hands to create an album, Alone surprisingly has a consistency in its music. But alas, the album has no stand out song that will stick to your minds long after hearing. Having said that, Alone makes for a pleasant hearing experience.
Our Pick: Awaara, Katra Katra
