Ungli Music Review

Movie: Ungli

Cast: Emraan Hashmi,Kangana Ranaut,Randeep Hooda,Sanjay Dutt

Director: Rensil D'Silva

Music director: Salim-Sulaiman,Sachin-Jigar,Gulraj Singh,Aslam Keyi

 

It has become a trend of these days to rope in multiple music directors for a soundtrack. Though this works for some albums, let us see whether it has worked in the favor of Ungli.

 

 

1.Dance Basanti-Vishal Dadlani,Anushka Manchanda

Composed by Sachin-Jigar, this track gives an energetic opening to the album. The number begins with electronic flute loops and some Punjabi sounds. The blend of Western and desi beats gives a new flavor to this party number. But it sounds all too familiar and we get used to the tediousness emanated by this number. Hope it gets better with Emraan Hashmi and Shraddha Kapoor shaking a leg to it.

2.Pakeezah-Gulraj Singh

A sunny number that is easy on the ears and makes for a good listen when you are in one of your lovey-dovey moods. The guitar strums and the repetitive 'Pakeezah' are instantly addictive. And in addition to all these, there is Gulraj Singh who excels with many dimensions of his rendition. A melting song that would surely win a place in your heart. Sure-shot winner!

3.Aadarniya Ungli-Vishal Dadlani,Neeti Mohan

A fast paced adrenaline rush number that doesn't make our hormones thump to it. It fails to impress right from the word 'go'. Even Vishal Dadlani and Neeti Mohan can't save the song from ending up as a disaster. Though Gulraj Singh made an impressive composition with the previous number, he falls down in to the alley with this one!

4.Auliya-Armaan Malik

Salim-Sulaiman compose this soft spiritual number that is sweet and melodious. But the melody gets derailed as it progresses. Wish it could have been composed even more firmly. The slight piano notes and the mild chorus provide relief in this otherwise average number. Armaan Malik strives to make the track look good with his singing and he manages to win only up to some extent.

5.Ungli Pe Nachalein-Dev Negi,Shipra Ghoyal

Well, I wonder what's this? Is this an already heard number? Or is it a freshly composed one for Ungli? Aslam Keyi has been roped in to compose the promotional song of this movie and he couldn't even do a single bit of justice. Dev Negi and Shipra Ghoyal sound miserable and the overall beats of the number is depressing! Need I say more?

Verdict:

Though Ungli boasts of three composers, it falls short of expectations of many. Maybe director Rensil D'Silva needed such mundane numbers for his movie to make it look commercial!

Rating: **

Picks:

Pakeezah

  2. Wow...Nice review... I liked Dance basanti very much. From your review, it seems the number of artists doesn't match with the overall quality.

    Take care.
