      PULSATING TRACK

      If one is familiar with the style of Anand Raj Anand's music (think Kaante, Plan, Welcome), this album is very characteristic Anand Raj Anand. Pulsating with energy as well as music.

      It is a pleasant surprise, given the complete lack of hype or publicity around this one.

      Rabba Rabba - Is a beautiful track sung by Roop Kumar Rathod. A perfect choice for this song, given his mould and track of doing justice to similar numbers in the past like 'Tujh Main Rab Dikhta - Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi' or 'Ai Jaate Huye Lamhon - Border'. A soothing listen. If at all, the lyrics could have been more poignant and soul searching to add to the listening pleasure.

      Dil Ke Taar - A very Anand Raj Anand number, racy cheeky and saucy in tone, making good use of the piano and set to a very Latin beat. Sung well by the music director himself reminiscent of the Adnan Sami style of singing. Akruti Kakkar also does a fair job.

      Yaariyan – The ‘dhadakta bhadakta’ daaru number. The music is true to the lyrics of the song, in keeping with the mood of this number, with bottles popping in the background and the sound of booze flowing. It has been performed in hard hitting style by Anand Raj Anand himself and Anushka Manchanda.

      Masti – The quick pulsating, in your face number by Sunidhi.

      Shadow – The title track, which has just the right bit of intrigue, suspense and thrill with a good roll of the drums in it. Sung well by Sukhwinder and Akruti, however one can’t help wonder if a more sophisticated voice such as that of maybe a K.K. or Shaan would have suited the mood of the song better.

      Khumariyan – Another one by Sunidhi and with a Latino beat.

      All in all not a great album, but not a bad one either. There are plenty worse being churned out these days. Unfortunately since this is low key it will not see much success but not a bad listen, nevertheless!
