Mumbai: After a light, youthful album for `Luv Ka The End`, composer Ram Sampath goes all experimental with his next soundtrack for the film `Delhi Belly` and from the compositions he has created, the song `DK Bose` stands out, becoming quite a rage these days among youth.
The album offers 10 tracks of diverse kinds.
It opens with the song that is on everyone`s lips nowadays - `DK Bose`. Crooned by Sampath himself, the track with quirky, interesting and double meaning lyrics has already become quite popular. With a rock-infested composition and an energetic, pacy feel, the song has become a favourite of youth and has become an instant chartbuster.
Next is `Nakkaddwale disco, udhaarwaley khisko`, a very different kind of track with unusual lyrics. It has been sung by Keerti Sagathia and is only an average number.
`Saigal blues` brings back the era and style of legendary singer KL Saigal. The track that has Chetan Shashital behind the mike is sung in Saigal`s style but with a contemporary touch. The composition is under the genre of blues that bring about a certain poignancy in the song. On the whole, it`s a mix of today and the eras gone by.
`Bedardi raja` by Sona Mohapatra is a rustic, masses song and seems to be an item number in the film. It`s a simple composition and offers nothing great.
The track also has a grind mix, which has more beats than the original but the basic character and the pace of the song remain the same.
Another eccentric track `Jaa chudail`, sung by Suraj Jagan, is a rock track from the word go. It might be liked by hard rock lovers.
`Tere siva`, the only soft, love track of the album, has been voiced by Sampath and Tarannum Mallik and is a simple romantic number with a touch of rock. However, the orchestration is not very strong. A good hear.
`Switty tera pyaar chahida` is a Punjabi music lover`s delight. Strong beats, Punjabi lyrics and lots of energy make this track a total dance number. Crooned by Keerthi Sagathia, this song gets the listener hooked and is quite likeable.
It also has another version called `Switty punk` that has the addition of Sampath and is higher in energy and fun.
Then there is "I hate you (like I love you)" that is a song by Keerthi Sagathia again with ample support from Sona Mohapatra. It is a mix of various genres of music and multiple influences. Starting as a slow-paced Indianised track, it goes on to become fully Western in its feel, music and lyrics, then takes the guise of a typical Bollywood song in the 1970s and finally ends like a qawwali. Very experimental and energetic at the same time.
On the whole, the music is unusual, breaks monotony and is far from being typical.
