Any follower of Bollywood, especially when it comes to good music, would certainly know by heart the entire catalogue that Vishesh Films has created in last two decades. And now when Bhatt brothers are ready to strike again with Raaz – The Mystery Continues (which is not a sequel to Raaz and mainly extends the horror-n-mystery genre forward), their music is in news once again.
Would it impress yet again, just like majority of films coming from the house of Bhatts do? Would it have soulful tunes which would make Raaz – TMC yet another addition to the enviable music catalogue of the Bhatts?
Would Emraan Hashmi’s lucky charm rub over Raaz – TMC too when it comes to popularity of music? Would Raaz – TMC match up to Raaz that had some haunting melodies by Nadeem-Shravan and still registers sales at the music stands?
Raaz – TMC takes an excellent start with ‘Mahi Ve’ which can be comfortably placed as the flagship number of the album. Though in essence ‘Mahi Ve’ is a love song, it has an element of pain and a wait for togetherness attached to it that brings with it some trademark Bhatt element.
Also, this melodious track by Sharib-Toshi has a good fusion of Indian and Western instruments that come together to make it a piece which gets on you after the first listening itself. A chartbuster number that also appears in a ‘Rock With Me’ version, it is waiting to make waves in weeks to come.
If you liked ‘Bheege Hoth Tere’ (Murder), chances are high that you would fall for ‘Soniyo’ as well.
Picturised on Adhyayan Suman and Kangna, this Raju Singh composed has a serene feel to it and celebrates the coming together of two hearts who have perhaps found true love for the first time.
With a hint of Western touch to it, ‘Soniyo’ is a soft romantic number which has it’s moments, especially in the ‘antara’ portions, where time tends to stand still!
However, not just time but your feet also start moving the moment the rhythm of Raju Singh composed ‘O Jaana’ begins.
A true follow up to ‘Kaho Na Kaho’ (Murder), ‘O Jaana’ is a dance floor number and more than anything else, one looks forward to seeing Kangna in a chilled out form for perhaps the first time ever in a Hindi film.
A track with just the right kind of punch required to attract youngsters, especially in the ‘Dance With Me Mix’ version by DJ Suketu, ‘O Jaana’ is all set to be a number that would rock the charts other than ‘Mahi Ve’.
Pranay M. Rijia, a new composer, gets an entry into the world of Bhatts with the responsibility of creating the title song ‘Kaisa Ye Raaz Hai’.
The track has a haunting-n-silent beginning to it and while the pace is quite slow here, it is just right for a number belonging to this genre. A situational song, it is expected to be placed at numerous junctures in the narrative.
‘Bandaa Re’ marks an end to this album which has a devotional feel to it. A number which gives the message of God being right in front of you rather than at pilgrimage spots, it brings with it a fusion of Indian classical and ‘Sufi’ flavor.
The music of Raaz – TMC has its own place under the sun and what matters in the end is whether it works for the film or not. Well, the answer for this one is a firm Yes!
