YRF’s entry in 2013 was expected to be grand as always but it seems that they were not quite ready for any sort of bang. First, the weird title, less promotions, unknown (for many) music director and many uninteresting facts sum to the lack of craziness the public showed in the soundtrack as well as in the film. Amartya Rahut and Vipin Mishra shared the responsibility of composing the songs. I would say good attempt, but needs more effort. Let’s check out then!
Music Label: YRF Music
1. Barbaadiyaan – Singers: Ram Sampath, Sasheh Aagha; Music: Amartya Rahut; Lyrics: Puneet Sharma
This is a regular club song which has usual techno sounds. Sasheh, the newcomer has quite effective vocals. Ram Sampath has also managed to sing quite well. The composition lacks quality. The arrangements are nice. But the lyrics are dull, boring and don’t merge well with the composition.
2. Jigra Fakira – Singer: Keerhi Sagathia; Music: Vipin Mishra; Lyrics: Manoj Kumar Nath
Starting with a mild acoustic guitar, this song is supported by Keerthi’s hard vocals and nice use of instruments. The composition is quite nice and pleasant. Lyrics would have sounded better if it was in Hindi instead of Punjabi. It’s a one time listen and soon you would feel bored and quit after some time. But since it is the best in the soundtrack, it is a “WELCOME” track.
3. Barbaadi – Singer: K. Mohan; Music: Amartya Rahut; Lyrics: Puneet Sharma
A much better and mild version of Barbaadiyaan. K. Mohan’s voice sounds brilliant and the arrangements are decent and nice. Lyrics also show some improvement here. A different kind of composition which is rare to listen. The main credit goes to the singer. He has completely ruled the whole song with his heavy and soothing vocals. A must listen!
4. Aurangzeb / Aurangzeb – Rock Version – Singers: Marianne D’Cruz Aiman, Choir / Vipin Mishra; Music: Vipin Mishra; Lyrics: Vipin Mishra
This is the title track of the soundtrack but sounds low, dull and boring as you crosses the mukhra and the notes slightly get changed when you reach to the hook line. The rock version sounded a little better but overall the composition fails. The lyrics too disappoint.
Instrumentals – Music: Vipin Mishra
There are four instrumental pieces and all are well played and manage to get a one time listen! They all could be better but they lacked creativity.
Aurangzeb was a dull, boring and uninteresting soundtrack. It has no interesting flavors. There’s nothing in the album that can attract a listener. Amartya Rahut and Vipin Mishra both performed well but it could have been better and more interesting!
