Shanghai (Music review), Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar
Bharat mata ki jai, with 6 singers, is an enthusiastically raucous package with biting sarcasm in its lyrics, by Dibakar himself. Imported kamariya is not very different tune-wise, but this one doesn’t register. The utopian Morcha works for Vishal’s lyrics and the anthemic tune. The soundtrack’s highlights are Duaa and Khudaaya – the former, an ambient melody with towering lead vocals by Nandini Srikar, and the latter, a serene tune, led by Shekhar, lovely lyrics by Neelesh Mishra and mesmerizing orchestration and tune changes. Vishnu Sahasranamam is treated with adequate respect. Shanghai is a solid effort from Vishal and Shekhar!
