Masaan is that very film that earned its fame in the news of getting standing ovation in the Cannes Film Festival. Neeraj was an assistant of Anurag Kashyap in Gangs Of Wasseypur. Along with the lyricist and writer Varun Grover, he wrote the film which is set in Varanasi and in some parts of Allahabad. The music has been given by the ever awesome band Indian Ocean who are famous for their unique folksy tunes.

1. Tu Kisi Rail Si – Singer: Swanand Kirkire; Lyrics: Varun Grover (Adapted from a poem by Dushyant Kumar) – The album starts with a typical Indian Ocean track with an earthy tune that, if not alone, but, sounds delightful with beautiful lyrics adapted from the poem by Dushyant Kumar. The Guitar-laden arrangements are apt and obvious. Swanand with his vocals gives it a complete folksy touch though one expects a slight modulation in his vocals to make it sound more delightful. Lyrics which is adapted from the poem wins the heart!
2. Mann Kasturi – Singer: Amit Kilam; Lyrics: Varun Grover – Again a very Indian Ocean track that is well crafted using the base Guitars and a very well arranged chorus aptly handled by Rahul Ram and Himanshu Joshi. Amit leading the track, forms a pleasant tuned atmosphere in addition to Varun Grover’s beautifully woven rhyming lyrics make this track pleasurable to hear. Pleasant! #WelcomeSong
3. Bhor – Singers: Amit Kilam, Rahul Ram, Himanshu Joshi; Lyrics: Sanjeev Sharma – The band’s very own Sanjeev Sharma has penned the lyrics for this track which is a folklore, basically telling bits and pieces of different stories centered around a single theme. Rahul and Himanshu too come in the lead though much of the work is still handled by Amit only. The slowness of the song doesn’t exhaust us but the duration does. It’s tad long track which makes the otherwise creative composition, monotonous. One-time pleasing!
Even with just three songs, Masaan is not a short soundtrack.
