Composer duo Anand-Milind has once again unleashed their Midas touch with their soulful compositions in their second bengali film, Murder which was supposedly their first film they signed for Tollywood industry. "I wanted to introduce Anand-Milind in bengali films though Tomaye Bhalobashi released as their debut film which they signed after my film & I had no problems with that", says Prakash Jaiswal, director of Murder. Though this film is also shot in Hindi with new comers in lead roles, the bengali version has hit the theaters first. Now coming back to its music, this film has got five tracks altogether & has different shades of melody. Let us now analyze them one by one.
'Bhalobasha Phire Esho Na...' is by far the most melodious track of the album with very good poetry by lyricist Gautam Susmit. The tune nicely encapsulates the pain of an obsessed lover & its desperation for its partner. Anand-Milind proves yet again why they are called maestros of romantic music as they win over your hearts with this splendid composition. The orchestration is evenly balanced throughout & refreshing to the core. Kunal Ganjawala's mushy rendering takes this song to an altogether different height. Definitely a chart-buster for sure.
'Kalke Tumi Amar...' is a peppy track full of energy & rhythm & is quickly rising the charts on You Tube. Powerful voices of Shaan & Ritu Pathak have done full justice to this track. Definitely a hummable number.
'Oi Chokhe Ki Jadu Aache...' is a glorious example of magical composition when melody leads from the front & is backed up by superb arrangement. The freshness & emotions of love have been brilliantly incorporated in the tune. The song has got lot of expressions & a youthful & refreshing rendering by debutant Arun Daga exhibits promise as a playback singer.
'Shagor Jodi Daake...' is again a slow yet melodious love track. The song nicely encompasses the essence of true love & sounds soothing to your ears. Voices of Javed Ali & Madhushree suits this style of melody & does full justice to this composition. Orchestration is simple & traditional, something which reminds us of great musical era of 90's. A number which will slowly but certainly build on you.
'Laila Bole Majnu Chai...' is a sizzling club song rendered under the power-packed voices of June Banerjee & Aroon Bakshi. Though I am not a vivid liker of an item song because of its lack of lyrical value but still the arrangement & rhythm of this track keeps up your tempo throughout.
This concludes all the tracks of this album. To summarize we can say its an album which has melody written all over it. Go for it if you miss the melodious era of 90's.
It has been a nice journey so far this year for composers Anand-Milind in the arena of bengali commercial films as two of their films released this year. Their attempt to center stage melodious music once again should be applauded as they are renowned for their mellifluous compositions & its a treat to hear their music. Would like to see them work for Tollywood movies again in the days to come. Till then signing off. Chow!
