Music Review: Kaminey: Exceptional in Parts, Good in Others

Music - Vishal Bharadwaj / Lyrics - Gulzar

Starting off at a dance-creative note with Dhan-Te-Nan, composer Vishal Bharadwaj moves to a more sombre Pehli baar mohabaat, the other dance track Raat ke dhai baje is catchy with Sunidhi Chauhan and the unlikely Suresh Wadkar at the vocals.

Bhawra aaya re is an unusual AIDS awareness song, kudos to Gulzar to placing it poetically, without adding any loudspeaker tone to the social message. The title track Kaminey is worth a listen with a surprisingly subdued tone to it. Overall, four out of five songs stand out of the pack, now how many times do we get that? No consideration for the remixes -  a redundancy for us. 

Listen in
Other soundtrack gems of Vishal Bharadwaj: Omkara and Maachis. Gulzar omnipresent in the lyrics department.
