Inkaar is a Sudhir Mishra film so it was obvious that the music won’t play any important role in this film. But when we see the Jodi of Shantanu Moitra as a composer and Swanand Kirkire as a lyricist, we could have expected a good soundtrack but it didn’t work. Instead you feel betrayed after listening to it. All the songs are of rock genre and none of them represents any good sign of music whether it’s tune wise or on the basis of arrangements.
Music Director: Shantanu Moitra, Lyricist: Swanand Kirkire
- Darmiya – Singers: Swanand Kirkire
The tune is so straight n blatant that you wouldn’t feel any voice modulation in Swanand’s voice. In the stanza, it becomes straighter and you would feel irritated and stop there. The only good thing about this song is the chorus line “yeh kaisi raat..” that is so well made that you would actually start singing to it. It’s a beautiful line.
- Maula Tu Malik Hai – Singers: Swanand Kirkire, Shanatanu Moitra
This is a purely rock genre song which has certainly better modulations and arrangements than the previous one. But the tune completely lacks here. Here also the chorus part is worth listening “maula tu malik hai” and has excellent guitaring and drumming.
- Zindagi Ka Karobar – Singers: K Mohan
There’s another rock song with the same arrangements and same style of composing and just makes a one-time listen. Mohan has sung it very well though the composition was not up to the mark. Listen only if you are fan of Mohan’s voice.
- Kuch Bhi Ho Sakta Hai – Singers: Suraj Jagan
Again the same kind of composition and lacks quality, instruments, arrangements everything. Swanand’s lyrics in this song is realistic which deals with today’s world but it could have been a much better song if Shantanu had tried something different. So this is a “GET OUT” from the soundtrack.
- Inkaar (Theme) – Singers: Monali Thakur
This track has all the elements that a theme track needs. Perfectly arranged and tuned. Monali’s voice is a worth listening. After all the drumming and jamming you would feel relaxed when you listen to this. It’s definitely a “WELCOME” track.
So, Inkaar had four songs and a theme track. Shantanu-Swanand’s Jodi is famous for their cute, soothing, full of life songs yet they are called to produce a dull, negative soundtrack. They have so much potential that I had expected something great from them but this album is full of disappointments. I think it’s the first time where the theme track is better from all the songs.
I tried giving it some marks but failed. I have to give it a
