1. Sawaar Loon – Singer: Monali Thakur
It makes you remember the old classic times mostly of 60s. Amit has given a beautiful retro feel to it keeping the tune basic and simple and just experimented with the arrangements. It is a lovable melody beautifully sung by Monali. Had it been Shreya, it would be more exciting. The lyrics are nature oriented and keeps you moving with the track.
2. Ankahee – Singer: Amitabh Bhattacharya
I salute the lyrics as it is quite philosophical and a little bit filmy too to make it comfortable with the mass. Music is great. Arrangements are nicer. Amitabh has sung in a unique style sounding like KK. A must listen track!
3. Shikayatein – Mohan Kanan, Amitabh Bhattacharya
Amitabh is again on the mic with Mohan this time. They make a great combo. Amit has composed it the way it sounds best for the coordination. The instruments and the arrangements are brilliant. This song has also the basic theme melody of Lootera which is a treat for the listeners. Lyrics play a great role and beautifies it more.
4. Monta Re – Singer: Swanand Kirkire, Amitabh Bhattacharya
This is even more retro. It has less melody as it is not sung by the regular singers but that’s what the song needed here. It’s a situational track having very less attractiveness but it sounds good after you watch the movie.
5. Zinda – Amit Trivedi
Sung by the composer with his heavy bass-oriented voice appeals very high and the tune in Komal Swar, touches hearts of many listeners. Very god arrangements but the lyrics here are the king. What an incredible performance by Amitabh. Amazing.
6. Manmarziyaan – Shilpa Rao, Amit Trivedi
This is I would say something extraordinary. The coordination between both the singers and how Amit creatively has done that. Salute to him. Lyrics are perfect and arrangements and recording is brilliantly done. Shilpa is outstanding. This is the WELCOME song.
Lootera was a kind of soundtrack that would win many heart. It is pure, true to music and simple, touchy yet goes with the mass. This Amit Trivedi’s best work till date. This Amtabh’s best work till date. Since Aamir this jodi has been doing exceptionally well and we’ll wait to hear more from them in future.
The Final Verdict: AGREE
