Often, 'New York' is ennobled as 'City of Paradise' with more flamboyant colours, fiestas of elatedness. Kabir Khan stepped up on podiums of appraisals with a docu-drama 'Kabul Express' that won him commendable reviews. With endeavoring efforts, he's geared on for yet another flick that has already turned spotlights in town with stunning teasers. Pritham Chakraborthy - Master of reveling tunes is back in town for this big-budgeted venture of Yash Raj Films...
The album has 8 tracks with various genres from 'Sufi' to the snappily appealing signature musicals.
Hai Junoon Listen here
Vocal: Kay Kay Menon
Perhaps, here's the best pick of this album. A cherishing song with fabulous lyrics by Sandeep and mild rhythms on synthesized percussions-guitars embellishes it yet more exquisitely. More than all, Kay Kay Menon's intonation is yet another highlight. The song top-notches on all panoramas and will peak across charts once on screens. Remix version has the euro-beats on the roll and this promotional song is already a hit.
Mera Sanq Listen here
Vocal: Sunidhi Chauhan
'Cool as Cucumber' - Play it again and again, you'll feel the idyllic touch. Pritham seems to have taking on for sang-froid tunes. Great to heed for another commendable piece of spell by Sunidhi who turned spotlights with her different touch on 'Dance Pe Chance' - RNBDJ. Much alike the previous number, the instrumentations are so balmy getting the voice to dominate. Minutes later, you'll get-through the remix version with orchestrated beats and additional instruments on the accompaniments.
Tune Jo Na Kaha Listen here
Vocal: Mohit Chauhan
Agaaya humara favorite Mohit! What a mesmerizing voice he's got? Splendidly, he has rendered evergreen numbers 'Tum Se Hi', 'Masakali' and 'Kuch Kaas' on the row. Here's another grandiloquent song. Much clichéd running chords on guitars brims the song with refreshing appeal.
Aye Saaye Mere Listen here
Vocal: Pankaj Awasthi
Much splendiferous-unparalleled; Pankaj Aswathi on the tracks tunes a 'Sufi-fangled' song blended with interesting quotients. Unlike the other songs that has penchant feel of invigorations, it has a contrastive shade. Looks like the song will carry series of montages set at backdrops of entangled situation.
Sam's Theme (Instrumental) Listen here
Vocal: Caralisa Monteiro
With much poignancy feel, Caralisa's vocalism is more mesmerizing. Accompanied with stringed instruments, the theme song continues to sustain with same genre for next 4mins. Slow-strings, violin and oboe ingrains with more charm.
New York Theme Listen here
Unlike Sam's theme, this one sways strikingly different. Loaded with trenchant hard rock guitars and percussions, it's completely off enigmatical ambience.
On the whole, Pritham embarks with one more endeavoring album that has laudable melodies. With 'Hey Junoon' and 'Mere Sang' picking your interests, rest of the songs may turn to be more engrossing with eye-catching visuals of exotic locations.
Verdict: Worth heeding to
