|Music Review - Ek Tha Tiger.|
When you have Sohail Sen along with Sajid-Wajid as music composers, expectations are sure to be very high. Ek Tha Tiger lives up to the expectations. There are 8 songs in the album with 4 originals, 3 remixes & 1 theme song. Music is melodious & since there is a hint of Persian music, it sounds even more interesting. Below is the short music review of Ek Tha Tiger.
1. MashAllah : - Singer(s) - Wajid Khan & Shreya Ghoshal.
Perfect opening to the album. The video has already gone viral on the internet. Typical middle-east tunes open this. Prelude is quite catchy. Sajid-Wajid then fuse it with electronic tunes. Tune is instantly likeable & arrangements are quite interesting. Wajid & Shreya sing in perfect Persian accent. Techno effect is nicely placed.
2. Laapata : - Singer(s) - KK & Shreya Ghoshal.
3. Banjaara : - Singer(s) - Sukhwinder Singh.
4. Saiyaara : - Singer(s) - Mohit Chauhan & Tarannum Malik.
Another tuneful, melodious-romantic number. Excellent composition. Mohit Chauhan sings in his signature style. Persian tunes gel well with orchestration. Tarannum Malik sounds a bit coarse. I think Shreya should have sung this. You'll love it straight away. Great song to add to your Romantic songs' playlist.
5. Tiger's Theme : - Instrumental (Julius Packiam).
6. MashAllah (Remix) : -
7. Laapata (Remix) : -
8. Banjaara (Remix) : -
Techno effects are quite noticeable. This one again is not bad, though not as good as the original.
My Pick(s) : - Laapata & Saiyaara.
Ek Tha Tiger is really one of the best albums to have released this year (in my view). Songs are really catchy & melodious. Middle East impact adds to the tunes. Sohail Sen is one of the best contemporary music composers. His music is quite fresh & melodious. Definitely, go for Ek Tha Tiger. MashAllah (Remix) is a bit disappointing but rest of the songs are just great.
