Agnel Roman and Faizan Hussain, who debuted with Ragini MMS, got few songs in few films like Mickey Virus, Darr @ The Mall etc. Jigariyaa, seems to be having a good musical scope, is the duo’s first full-fledged project in which another duo Raj-Prakash is making their debut as guest composers. Newcomers have been signed for this 80’s love story where the two lovers would express their feelings with letters.

1. Ishq Hai / Ishq Hai (Reprise) – Singer: Javed Ali / Javed Ali, Yashika Sikka
Love has different colors i.e different qualities and Arun Kumar has penned down those qualities in a quite charismatic way. The rhythm draws your attention and Javed Ali’s soothing vocals helps you very much with that. Percussion is the power of this song by getting a good company of Flute, Guitar and Violin. Antara is overflowed with beautiful melody and the composers have laid an awesome bridge for the antara to flow out to the mukhda. The reprise version has Yashika, singing the starting lines with a static nature and as Javed Ali enters, it’s again all the same. Not a regular romantic track. Will give you a slight feel of Raanjhana Title track.
2. Arziyaan – Singers: Vikrant Bhartiya, Aishwarya Majmudar; Guest Composers: Raj-Prakash; Guest Lyricist: Faraaz Ahmad
A really soothing romantic track with utterly soothing voice of Vikrant Bhartiya. A melody that you start crooning the moment you hear it. It’s catchy, it’s melodious and it’s filmy too. The rhythm section is quite a filmy effort from the composer. Faraaz’s lyrics doesn’t account for something out-of-box, yet it’s very decent and mature. Although Aishwarya has been credited, her voice has only been used in the video. Vikrant rules this composition in his own innocent way. This can be another promising duo.
3. Mora Rangddar Saiyyaan – Singers: Prajakta Shukre, Roopkumar Rathod
Agnel and Faizan have gone more retro here. Prajakta Shukre, one of the finalists of Indian Idol season one, has come on board after a very long time accompanying Roopkumar Rathod. Prajakta’s vocals have grown mature in these years giving the song a more retro feel, particularly the 80’s feel and I guess, that’s what the composers wanted as the story is set in 80’s only. Brilliant instrumentation, particularly in the strings department. It would be injustice not to mention the percussion that has made the song sound grand. This is not a song which would easily attract but the tune of this song would last with you longer than any other track.
4. Jigariyaa – Singer: Javed Bashir
The composers would have enjoyed the most composing this fantastic title track. Javed Bashir inspite of having craggy vocals, always does his magic, especially when it’s a melancholy. Apt use of Violin and the wonderful maintenance of rhythm faithfully justifies Javed Bashir’s effort of excellent singing. The tune has a sulking texture which has the ability to make its listener emotional. Arun Kumar’s lyrics add more magic to the emotions. A perfect blend of beautiful singing, composition and lyrics. #WelcomeSong
5. Rang Rang De – Singers: Suchi, Jatinder Pal Singh, Yashika Sikka
“Abki Holi main khelungi datke”, the famous line used in Holi folk songs has shown a great impact in this Holi track. Jatinder who sounds very much like Sukhvinder, along with Suchi, is in a great form. Balam Pichkari was more modern and was more techno tuned. This track is wholly laid on authentic instrumentation. Not only the arrangements, but the tune is really beautiful. Lyrics is decently clear with no double meaning words and Arun seems to have concentrated to be as folksy as possible. A slight retro touch must be the film’s need and anyway, it doesn’t harm the fun the song has.
6. Phurr Phurr – Singers: Aishwarya Majmudar, Manjira Ganguly, Agnel Roman
Aishwarya completely steals the show. Her effective vocals snatches your attention even when the song is not so attractive. It seems to be a situational track where the lyrics seem to be folk-inspired and composition gets experimental. Agnel’s vocals work as a catalyst for the otherwise tedious song. The song takes a turn towards the famous folk song “Banno teri ankhiyaan surme laagi”. Inspite of having a good tune, it is not a kind of song that would instantly be liked. Either it would take time to grow or would be enjoyed only on screen.
Jigariyaa is a folksy yet fresh, retro yet colorful effort from the composer duo Agnel Roman and Faizan Hussain along with the guest composer duo Raj-Prakash.
