Movie: Ek Villain
Cast: Siddharth Malhotra,Shraddha Kapoor,Riteish Deshmukh
Director: Mohit Suri
Music director: Mithoon,Ankit Tiwari and Soch(Band)
Ankit Tiwari comes up with a spellbinding melody-rock with this number. Right from the beginning, the song keeps you hooked on in a trance. The brilliantly constructed tune makes you forget that it is a sad song. Though Ankit has composed this track on the lines of Sun raha hai na, it has it's unique style. The flute and violin interludes adds much more melody to the already melodious number. Manoj Muntashir's love filled lyrics deserves a special mention. A chartbuster!
This track has Mithoon's stamp all over it. A lilting melody with a slight Sufi touch makes this number worth listening on repeat mode. The true soul of the song lies in Mohammed Irfan's flawless rendition. His magnificent voice leaves you wanting for more. One of the finest tracks of this year.
Though this is an underrated track, it has turned out to be my personal favorite. It's a fast paced heartbreak song that has an overall pop-ish feeling to it. As for Mustafa Zahid's singing, he does complete justice to this number. He carries off the magic which he left behind with Bhula dena. This song is to be liked only by a few listeners. But I say, it's a Once in a blue moon track.
4.Awari-Adnan Dhool,Momina Mustehsan
Here comes an innovative composition that will grow on you after a few listens. This experimental track has an ethereal touch with it's background sounds. The electronica flushes in the interlude is something new to listen for. Momina's voice is dark and rustic, adding spice to this number. Adnan Dhool complements her well. What I liked about this number is that it sounds much like an ARR track. Magical!
Arijit Singh! That one word is enough to say that this number is a melody. Though the tune is a plain average one, Arijit turns out to be the saving factor. This is probably the weakest track of the album. But overall it's listenable and it can even make it to the charts due to its simplicity.
6.Galliyan (Unplugged)-Ankit Tiwari,Shraddha Kapoor
Wow! I never knew that Shraddha Kapoor could sing with such an elegance. She has got an earthy and natural voice which adds beauty to the already popular number. Nowadays, most of the unplugged versions of popular numbers don't live up to the original ones. But Ankit Tiwari tactfully handles this melody balancing it with minimal guitar strums.
Ek Villain is a promising soundtrack and I am sure that it will capture many hearts like it did to me. It's going to be placed in Top ten albums of this year.
