Music review of Satyagraha

Its about time that we review the music of Satyagraha. Satyagraha will officially hit the theaters tomorrow, so lets do our home work right and listen to all the songs before hand. The music has been composed by the very talented Salim-Sulaiman Merchant and offers 7 brilliant numbers including a remix version of Aiyo Ji and a house mix version of Raske Bhare Tore Naina. Brownie points to Aadesh Shrivastava for recreating the Mora Piya magic with Raske Bhare Tore Naina! We love that song!!!

Music review of Satyagraha

Satyagraha : Rajiv Sundaresan, Shivam Pathak and Shweta Pandit did an amazing song with the title song. Yes, we heard a different side of Raghupati Raghav in Kuch Kuch Hota Hai but this version takes the soothing and slow hymn to an entirely new level. The song is high on energy almost showing us the aggressive side of the tired janta who would like to take matters in their own hands.

Aiyo ji : An otherwise boring song turned into a fast track by the amazing background beats. Sung by Salim Merchant and Shraddha Pandit at a slow pace, the song isn’t the type that would stay in your mind after the movie. The remix version of it however is a different story! Going by the lyrics, we can tag it as a typical romantic number.

Raske bhare tore naina : So, a powerful song like this is a must in Prakash Jha movie. Sung by Shafqat Amanat Ali and Arpita Chakraborty, the song is just too perfect. If we are at the liberty of tagging the songs by mood, then we can definitely tag this as a sensual song. And to be very honest, this is the best song in the entire album. Yeah, others are good too but this is just too addictive. The remix version just reminds me of Mora Piya from Raajneeti. Aadesh Shrivastava has done a wonderful job!

Hum bhole the : The fusion between the drum and guitar is what will keep you hooked. High on energy this song is from the popular band Indian Ocean and is given by Rahul Ram, Himanshu Joshi and Amit Kilam. A must hear if you enjoy songs filled with energy.

Janta : The only turn off about this song is its way too long. 7 minutes! Its good, energetic and all but then nothing special to keep the listener interested for 7 long minutes. You could listen to Raske bhare tore naina twice instead.
