      Music Review Of "Ek Thi Daayan" By Sumit Sharma.

      It's undoubted, when Emraan Hashmi’s name is associated with a film, the expectations from music of the film sky-rocket and ETD is no exception to these expectations. Famous TV and film producer Ekta Kapoor is also known for her unique concepts and marketing strategies, and this time she brought a supernatural musical romantic thriller. Vishal Bhardwaj & Gulzar always brings some fresh and meaningful songs, this pair has won so many awards together for films like Maachis, Omkara, Kaminey, and Ishqiya, & Well-known singer and composer Clinton Cerejo also sung two songs for the album and composed the background score for the film, So naturally expectations are high. 'Ek Thi Daayan' is another anacreontic album by Vishal Bhardwaj with some fresh, succulent and melodious tracks. Hit!

      1. Album begins with a truly awesome romantic melody "Yaaram" spectacularly rendered by Sunidhi Chauhan & Clinton Cerejo. Song starts with very soft acoustic guitar and picks very blandly through Sunidhi Chauhan's supple vocals and supportive loops of soft drum kicks, snaps and strings. Sunidhi Chauhan's transcendent vocals lightly flow through lower notes but the best part begins in the midst of the song when song picks loudly and Clinton Cerejo's tempting voice takes you to another zone of manifestation through naughty and impressive way. Gulzar's evincive and efficacious lyrics makes the song more plausible especially when he concatenates stationery commodity melodiously crafted on this joyful melody. Sunidhi Chauhan & Clinton Cerejo both have done brilliant job and sung expressively. A surpassing start for the album!

      Munh khuli jamhaai pe

      Hum bajaayein chutkiyaan

      Dhoop naa tum ko lage

      Khol denge chhatriyaan

      Peechhe peechhe din bhar

      Ghar daftar mein le ke chalenge hum

      Tumhaari file-ein, tumhaari diary

      Gaadi ki chaabiyaan, tumhaari eyenakein

      Tumhaara laptop, tumhaari cap

      Aur apna dil, kanwaara dil

      Pyaar mein haara bechaaraa dil.

      2. After 'Sapne Mein Milti Hai' - Satya(1998) & 'Raat Ke Dhai Baje' - Kaminey(2009) we have another rocking track "Totey Ud Gaye" sung by Suresh Wadkar, Rekha Bhardwaj & Sukhwinder. Enjoy the effective blend of Gulzar's ambiguous lyrics and Vishal Bhardwaj's influential musical arrangements. It's full of soniferous elements like swingeing Naqareh, dhol and snazzy guitar. Gulzar's equivocal lyrics have three different parts comprises Punjabi and Urdu. Track merges three brilliant singers Suresh Wadkar, Rekha Bhardwaj & Sukhwinder and all have done tremendous job, it's a situational track. Nice!

      3. Now we have a very tender melody "Kaali Kaali" euphoniously rendered by Clinton Cerejo. It will immediately grasp your attention, song starts with very pleasurable music of soft acoustic guitar and piano. Vishal Bhardwaj used very soft musical arrangements for this melodious composition, mellifluent string, piquant violin, acoustic guitar he used everything very prodigiously in a very exquisite way. The best part of the track is Clinton Cerejo's mellifluously driven vocals which makes the song very dulcet. Clinton Cerejo's sonorous singing and transcendent expressions very affectionately & mildly sustain your heed and forge demulcent ambience of heartwarming susceptibilities. A melodious, ear soothing track! Recommended!

      4."Lautungi Main" sung by Rekha Bhardwaj, it's a situational track which describes the pledge and loyalty of Daayan towards her lover, ambient sounds, spiral delineation and Gulzar's weighty lyrics easily incline your mind towards the suspensory zone of the song. Rekha Bhardwaj sung brilliantly, the song contains two totally different expressions and Vishal Bhardwaj nicely maintains it.

      5. "Sapna Re Sapna" sung by Padmanabh Gaikwad, Yes! it's SRGMP Little Champs star Padmanabh Gaikwad behind the mic. It's a sweet lullaby, Vishal Bhardwaj used very soft and supple instruments like guitar, flute and piano with soft drum kicks and a little revulsion by using dholak. Padmanabh sung really well with perfect expressions through his calmative vocals. Nice!

      Music Director- Vishal Bhardwaj;

      Lyricist- Gulzar;

      Rating- 4/5 ;

      Recommended Songs- Yaaram, Kaali Kaali, Sapna Re Sapna .
