Amit Trivedi is growing and How…The guy has announced his arrival on the big stage. National Award Winner like him are one of their kind. He is imaginative, different and unique. After proving himself with Dev D, Udaan & Aisha, he comes up with brilliance in No One Killed Jessica.
The album has 6 super tracks written by Amitabh Bhattacharya. Now it looks like Amit Trivedi & Amitabh Bhattacharya are becoming a duo and I think its a win win factor for both. Like his other albums here also he has experimented.
The album starts with Aali Re sung by Tochi Raina, Biswasjit Chakraborty, Shriram Iyer, Raja Hassan, Anushka Manchanda, Sonu Kakar, Aditi Singh Sharma and Sonika Sharma. Some people will see a Rehman touch in it but I think we shouldn’t take anything away from Amit here. This one is a super party track and one imaginative one with good, bold & different lyrics. The song has an edgy music and is catchy and grows on you.
Next is the song which we have seen in the trailers Dilli . Sung by Tochi Raina, Shriram Iyer and Aditi Singh Sharma this one is a winner. Amit includes classical elements here along with brilliant rock rendition and guitar riffs and we can see the result. It starts slow and then catches up and make your head bang. I think this one suits the tempo and energy of the movie and of course a tribute to the city of Dilli.
The song has another version with Dilli Hardcore but not much difference there. Next comes Aitbaar , another Rehman touch here with the vocals by Vishal Dadlani, Mame Khan Manganiyar and rap by Robert Omulo, this song has a grungy touch n feel to it but then you will find touches of folk and rap here and there. Another experimental track.
Now the album takes a turn with yeh Pal sung by Shilpa Rao, a soft song with good vocals with minimal music instruments. Slow in the start and in the end it catches up fully instrumental which is delightful. Last in the album is Dua sung by Meenal Jain, Raman Mahadevan, Joi Barua and Amitabh Bhattacharya. The chorus-y song with vary tempos and engaging orchestration which picks up slowly along with equally good lyrics .
Overall this one is another winner by Amit Trivedi. The album is surely gonna make people sit and look up.
