One take a look at the title The Darkish Facet of Life – Mumbai Metropolis and it appears extra apt for a e-book than a function movie. Nonetheless, that’s certainly the case for this movie which has a mixture of newcomers and skilled actors with Mahesh Bhatt being seen in an important half as nicely. Whereas Azeem Shirazi is the largest contributor because the lyricist, a number of composers come collectively to create half a dozen songs within the movie.
The form of sound that kick-starts ‘Aawargi’ reminds one of many form of music that Vikram Bhatt repeatedly brings in his movies. Jubin Nautiyal is efficient because the singer on this Sabir Khan composition which is put collectively by Azeem Shirazi. The difficulty although is that the track sounds dated by not less than a decade. Therefore, although it has a smooth really feel to it, the general affect shouldn’t be the type that makes you revisit it once more on loop.
The track that follows subsequent is titled ‘Tu Mujhse Nikalta Nahi’ and has the form of hook-line which is certainly catchy. In an even bigger movie with a bigger setup, this Prakash Prabhakar composed and heard track might nicely have discovered good traction. Once more, the track shouldn’t be distinctive however nonetheless has that quintessential Bhatt contact to it which makes it stand out. Furthermore, Tanveer Gazi places collectively an excellent spin of phrases, particularly the title.
Bear in mind ‘Manali Trance’ from The Shaukeens? The track which follows, ‘Saanp Seedhi Wala Saanp’, is on the identical traces and belongs to the trance style. As a matter of reality Tripty Sinha sings this one too in the identical fashion as that of Neha Kakkar and does handle to make an affect too. It’s a new crew of composer Sandeep Batraa and lyricists Azeem Shirazi and Ozil Dalal who pair up for this promotional track which is predicted to usher in good leisure quotient.
Nonetheless, a bit of affect that had been created up to now is diluted to a serious extent by Rashid Khan composed ‘Ae Zindagi’ which is as unhappy because it will get. From the composition, writing (Nisar Akhtar) in addition to the singing (Altamash Faridi Brothers) perspective, the track is de facto miserable and simply would not make you root for all of it. A sluggish transferring quantity that’s all about pathos, separation and the truth that life would not have a lot to supply to the protagonists, this one belongs to the quick-skip selection.
One other newcomer, Shaan Asif Raj, is the composer for ‘Muddaton’ which begins with the sound of guitar. Seemingly a live performance quantity, this Azeem Shirazi written track is rendered by Amit Mishra. A smooth rock quantity, ‘Muddaton’ tries to usher in the form of temper that was created by ‘Solar Raha Hai’ [Aashiqui 2]. Although it does fall brief, it nonetheless makes for a good hear in spite of everything. Had it carried extra punch to it, this one might nicely have discovered itself a greater viewers.
‘Aawargi Deewangi’ is the track that concludes the album and its miserable notes do probably not assist the trigger. On the identical traces as ‘Ae Zindagi’, this one is written by Aslam Sani with music by Ahsan Ahmed. There’s simply nothing in there which arrests your consideration and although Mohammed Irfan is the singer right here, you do not actually discover a lot leisure quotient in there.
The music of The Darkish Facet of Life – Mumbai Metropolis is a combined bag and although there is no such thing as a actual chartbuster on the market, two-three songs not less than maintain your consideration whereas at play.
‘Tu Mujhse Nikalta Nahi’, ‘Saanp Seedhi Wala Saanp’, ‘Muddaton’
