Nautanki Saala Music
Music Direction : Falak, Mikey McCleary, Rashid Khan
What I expected? : Melodies, melodies, good melodies.
Dramebaaz by Geet Sagar is quirky, enjoyable, well orchestrated but situational. Good one.
Tu Hi Tu by Ayushmann Khurana is swayable, well sung breezy melodic tune, vouches for repeat hear! Good one.
Dhak Dhak is decently orchestrated I'd say, not missing he essence of the original 'Beta' song sung funkily by Saba Azad,Geet Sagar and Santosh Sawant. Good hear!
Saddi Galli Aajaa is one song where Ayushaman shows immense professionalism(in composing along with Rochak Kohli and in singing) with Neeti Mohan supporting greatly in this serene Punjabi melody which go in leagues with 'Pani Da' to an extent. Grt hear.!
Remix is added. Reprise is equally enchanting!
Dil Ki toh lag Gayi is jazzy-blues, a bit of country sound in it, interesting premise with secretive apt vocals from Saba Azad. Mikey McCleary composition. Good one!
Mera Mann Kehne Laga's back laying accordion will make you fall for it, superbly composed, well orchestrated and conveniently sung addictive piece of melody, worth every penny you spend.! Falak's vocals need special mention, soulful. Grt hear.!
Mera Mann female version by Tulsi Kumar is not bad, compared to Tulsi's recent status, still I'll prefer the male version.
Reprise version is as beautiful.
Sapna Mera Toota Toota has Rahat Fateh Ali Khan singing what he's best at, sufi-qawaliish melody, thankfully for Rashid Khan's composition, way way better than the usual Sajid-Wajid mediocre stuffs we've been hearing recently, especially for the good tune and the youthful and low pitch singing! Good one!
So gaya Yeh Jahan is the 'Tezaab' song recreated retaining Nitish Mukesh's vocals, giving an electronic twist in orchestration. Good hear!
Verdict : One word to describe this album. Youthful.! The composers have succeeded in bringing together some smart tracks so rich in melody and so varied in genres with immense repeat quality. The two recreations work well, better than the original, some may find. Refreshing, lasting, cool tracks going straight into my playlist, to remain there. You won't want to miss this one. Excellent!
Must hears! : Mera mann, Sadi galli aaja, Dil ki toh lag gayi, Tu hi tu, Sapna mera
