1. Dheemi – Singer: Tejas Menon – Purely acoustic, the song captures the still life of the protagonist trapped in an apartment. Tejas with his breezy vocals justifies the melancholy. Alokananda’s decision of sticking to acoustic helps.
2. Hai Tu – Singer: Gowri Jayakumar – With a similar feel, Alokananda has made it more breezy. The impressive use of chorus adds on to the spirited feel. Gowri’s vocals give a sense of relaxation and the slow paced instrumentation heightens that.
3. Trapped Theme – Instrumental – At the beginning, it seems intense but soon it gets lighter in the mood. With excellently played Piano, the theme has such spontaneously flowing notes that one wishes if it had lasted longer.
4. I Am Trapped – Instrumental – Sounds which we heard in the trailer, the track is full of those and much more. It’s haunting and the way it has been arranged and programmed, it psychologically works extremely well. The sound of a drop of water or the cracking of plate and spoon make a haunting impact.
This short yet solid album from Alokananda Dasgupta eases out, relaxes, then haunts, intensely.
Worth Listening: Trapped Theme, I Am Trapped
The Final Verdict: 3.5/5
