Ek Thi Daayan is an upcoming movie that stars Emraan Hashmi in the lead. He is supported by Huma Qureshi, Kalki Koechlin and Konkana Sen Sharma as the female cast. The movie is about a magician played by Emraan and his tryst with witches, who continue to haunt him.
Vishal Bharadwaj has composed the music for this movie. He has joined hands with his favorite lyricist Gulzar Saab to work on the music of the film. Vishal has already proven his worth as a music director who can compose for dark films with 7 Khoon Maaf and his other movies. Ek Thi Daayan album has 5 songs in it.
This song was used as the first one to promote the film and it lives up to the name. Sung by Sunidhi Chauhan and Clinton Cerejo, this is a soothing song. Its starts of as a slow number but gains momentum slowly and becomes a foot tapping number.
Totey Udd Gaye
Totey Udd Gaye is a song that you use in weddings. Its fun song, sung by Suresh Wadkar, Sukhwinder Singh and Rekha Bhardwaj. Its a peppy yet its got a rustic touch to it. The punjabi dhols add to the song. Definitely an addictive song.
Clinton Cerejo holds the mike again for the next song Kaali Kaali. It is a very dark and romantic song. The low tones of the song give a creepy touch to it. It is a good song as the voice and music is too low. The best thing of this song is its lyrics, Hats of to Gulzar saab for writing this.
Lautungi Mein has Rekha Bharadwaj behind the mike. This song gives the perfect feeling of a horror movie.Along with Rekha’s raw and rustic voice, it has elements like ghunghroos, howling wolves and sound of crickets just like old horror movies which make the song more scary and eerie in nature. Kudos to Vishal for such a tune.
Sapna re Sapna
It is a lullaby song sung by Padmanabh Gaikwad who came in Lil Champs. His innocence and the high music gives a different feel to the song. It is not the best song of the album but a situational one which might suit the scene more.
Overall, Ek Thi Daayan is a good album, certainly not the best of Vishal Bharadwaj’s work though. Yaaram, Totey Udd gaye and Lautungi Main are my pick of songs from this movie. Ek Thi Daayan is releasing on this Friday, 19th April.
