Kai Po Che (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi
Swanand Kirkire’s wonderful imagination powers Manjha, while Amit sings it with his usual panache. Additional plus is the absolutely gorgeous use of Esraj, a peculiar choice given its East Indian origins against the film’s Western base! Shubhaarambh features an inventive staccato variant of the Dandiya rhythm, while Shehnai and Bagpipes make love in the background to enchanting effort, even as Divya Kumar and Shruti Pathak ace the vocals! Meethi boliyan is trademark Mr.Trivedi – mesmerizing tune changes over a blissful tune, sung fabulously by Mili Nair and Amit. Short – teasingly short, that is – magical soundtrack from composer Amit Trivedi!
