Music review: Ek – The Power of One (Hindi – Pritam & DJ Phukan)
Ek is a rather unusual soundtrack – it has 4 tracks, out of which 3 are composed by Pritam and the 4th is a recreation of a traditional Punjabi folk song, thankfully credited as much in the CD. DJ Phukan’s re-imagining of Sona lagda with Shaswati’s vocals and a lilting tune is pretty neat while Pritam scores big in Tum saath ho, a pleasant melody extraordinarily reminiscent of his own Woh Lamhe Gangster hit, Tu hi meri shab hai. Sambhale is a mess – hurried and flat while Bang bang is annoyingly noisy. Not ek, but do decent gaane in Ek!
