Efforts of Carelessness!! (Dharam Sankat Mein – Music Review)

It seems that making films on religion is becoming a fashion. After Oh My God and PK, here’s another satire on religion. It has been directed by a first-time director Fuwad Khan (not to be confused with the actor Fawad Khan). Three composers have been roped in namely, Sachin Gupta, Meet Bros Anjjan and Jatinder Shah, Shamir Tandon.

1. Tu Takke Tu – Singers: Gippy Grewal, Khushboo Grewal;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan – A decently composed catchy Punjabi track which one can easily attempt to listen yet nothing innovative or novel. Gippy’s vocals create some impact but because of the heard-before feeling for the composition, one cannot praise and enjoy it much. Very typical!

2. Shiv Tandav – Singer: Aman Trikha;  Music: Shamir Tandon – This is not a song but simply pronouncing religious chants which has been left untouched by any kind of techno sound or instrument except a Tanpura. And this effort is very appreciable as it is difficult these days to resist yourself from using any techno sound. A very good attempt!

3. Neelanand – Singer: Ravi Chowdhary;  Music: Sachin Gupta – A song portrayed on the character played by Naseeruddin Shah is a satire on his character and all those babas whom he is representing. Aptly supported by Manjeera as it is a spoof of devotional songs, Guitars are intelligently used too. Arrangement is fab with good management of chorus. Not worth listening though a good attempt.

4. Allah Hoo (Ravi Chowdhary Version) / Allah Hoo (Pardeep Sran Version) – Singer: Ravi Chowdhary / Pardeep Sran;  Music: Sachin Gupta – Sachin’s composition is lovable. It’s really beautiful and has that divine touch that is needed for these kind of songs. The song won’t appeal to mass though as few people have the patience to sit and listen carefully. Lyrics are beautifully written by Kumaar. It’s hard to compare both the versions. Both are equally good and have their own qualities though I found some flaws in Ravi’s singing. Worth listening! #WelcomeSong

5. Do You Know Baby – Singer: Gippy Grewal;  Music: Jatinder Shah – Jatinder Shah with a boring typical Punjabi track has come up, along with Gippy who sounds annoying unlike in the first track of the album. The song has been poorly programmed and what is most disgusting is the lyrics which are actually not making any sense of what the lyricist want to say or write. An extremely disappointing attempt by Jatinder Shah.

Sachin Gupta scores good with one track, the rest is vague efforts by the composers.

The Final Verdict:  NOT A PROBLEM
