Total Siyapa (Music review), Hindi – Ali Zafar

Posted by Karthik

The title song, along with the quirky lyrics, dialogs and sounds, is good fun. Ali Zafar fares really well in Palat keri jaan, singing, writing and composing the lovely ballad. Nahi maloom has a captivating Middle-Eastern + Latino blend sound and is sung particularly well by Ali and Fariha Parvaiz. The composer-singer uses a reggae template in Asha and delivers a nice, winsome song. It’s only when he tunes Bulleh Shah’s verses in the pensive Chal buleya that he falters in singing and composing. Barring that minor misstep, charming soundtrack overall, with Ali offering a good demonstration of his multi-facetedness.

    I like Ali Zafar’s light, straight ahead, peppy music but his Chal Buleya pales in comparison to the version by Mekaal Hasan Band in all aspects – vocals, orchestration and instrumentation. I wish they were less reclusive and more prolific.
