    My Rating

    • QUITE 'SURILA'

      Veer music rating: 5 out of 10(Paromeeta wrote on Dec 29 2009 5:22PM)

      The album is not outstanding but Sajid - Wajid do manage a musical album which has its moments. But it does suffer from a 'Lagaan' (by A.R. Rahman)hangover in sound & feel, possibly because of some overlap in theme between the two movies.

      The pick of the album is the surila song - 'Surili Ankhiyon Wale' - sung by the very melodious sounding Raahat Fateh Ali Khan. Set to very Gulzarish lyrics (Melodious eyes :-)!) it is a good listen. It has English lyrics in between sung in Lagaan style (remember O Re Chori) by Suzzane D'Mello to requirement.The song grows on you.It also has a solo version by Raahat.

      'Salaam Aaya' which is heavily promoted on television (The waltz number) has a nice peppy feel & beat. Sung well by Roop Kumar Rathod & Shreya (with a few lines hummed by Suzzane in between).

      'Meherbaniyan' is the quintessential Sonu singing for Sallu mast number. It is fast paced and sung in a cheeky style. Reminds one of the earlier Sonu Sallu numbers such as those in Mujhse Shaadi Karogi, Lucky etc.

      'Kanha' is a thumri sung in classical style by Rekha Bharadwaj in her unmistakable style, supported by the Sabri clan in chorus.

      'Taali' is the powerful title song sung by Sukhwinder (solo) and with Sonu, Raahat, Wajid & Neuman Pinto in the other version. Should fit the requirements on screen well.

      'Spirit of Veer' is a fast Western 'country style' instrumental piece.

      All in all, not a great album and not one perhaps, that would become a part of your 'favourites' collection. But a pleasant listen nevertheless and suitable to the theme of the movie. Good job Sajid - Wajid!
