Bhatt films have always given us spectacular music. Be it all the Emraan Hashmi films, or the recent Ashiqui 2, Ek Villain and others, every film has had music which topped the music charts. Gurmeet Choudhary, Ali Fazal and Sapna Pabbi starrer Khamoshiyan is no exception. The film's music has been doing great with the music lovers as people from all age groups have been going gaga over the same. The tracks definitely look promising. Let's have a look at the song by song music review...
Tu har lamha: Sung by Arijit Singh, this track sets the tone of the film. It has been composed by newbies Bobby-Imraan and has the exact Bhatt movie feel in it. Not just the soothing soft rock composition, even the lyrics by Sayeed Quadri are meticulous. The song's being touted as the next Tum hi ho, but wethinks it loses its charm in the later half of the song as it sounds so much like most of the other Bhatt film songs.
There is also a remix version of the song by DJ Angel and can be described in one word... unnecessary.
Khamoshiyan: Sung by Arijit Singh once again on the composition of Jeet Ganguly, this song brings back the terrific duo of Ashiqui 2 back together. The song is a beautiful ballad which is not just soulful but even spellbinding. The soft rock track has a haunting feel to it. Its initial notes are very soft and it gradually increases the tempo to give you that serene feel. By the end of the song you would have reached a musical crescendo with one end having Arijit's melodious voice and the other having Rashmi Singh’s fantastic lyrics. The lyrics are very simple but supremely engaging.
There is another unplugged version of the song, which wholly banks on Arijits vocals. Its good, no doubt, but not as impactful as the original.
Baatein ye kabhi na: Sung by Arijit Singh and Palak Muchhal, there are two versions of this track. The male version once again brings together the iconic jodi of Arijit Singh-Jeet Ganguly. The track can be considered to be one of Jeet's best compositions of the recent times. The opening notes are laden with techno beats, which sounded very unlike Jeet, but its the later half of the song turns into a soothing melody. The lyrics once again by Sayeed Quadri are simple and sweet. This track, however, isn't Arijit's best as he seems to be charting in unfamiliar territory. The female version by Palak is way better. More than being sweet, her voice is earnest.
Kya khoya: Sung by Naved Jafar, this song gives you the feel of Bhula dena from Aashiqui 2. Not just the composition, but also the vocals give you that Mustafa Zahid-Lucky Ali feel to it. Naved, who has composed the track as well, starts treading on the age old Bhatt formula and therefore this song doesn't create that much of an impact. After a point you start losing interest in it.
Bheegh loon: Sung by Ankit Tiwari and Prakriti Kakkar, this song is that typical erotic song. It is not Ankit's vocals but Prakriti's sensuous voice, which has been put to the best use by composer Ankit Tiwari. The song is good no doubt, but it lacks repeat value. It is only Abhendra Kumar Upadhyay’s lyrics, which stand out as the best feature of the track.
There is also a remix version of the track, which doesn't serve the purpose at all because it seems forced and unnecessary.
Subhan Allah: Sung by Anupam Amod, this track seems to be like an unplugged version of Tu har lamha. The song has almost the similar feel to it but is devoid of the soft rock elements. Also, Anupam is no Arijit Singh. Amod has rendered the track superbly but it's no match for Arijit and that's one thing which you will miss in this fantastic flawless composition.
Verdict: As expected the album is filled with romantic numbers and all of them are as good as it can get. It's Arijit Singh who makes this album a keeper. The only flaw in this is that the album is similar to almost all other Bhatt albums.
