Music Review; Darr @ The Mall (2014) *Shankar - Ehsaan - Loy*


Director: Pawan Kripalani
Cast: Jimmy Shergill, Nushrat Bharucha
Music Director: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy (Track # 1, 2, 4), Agnel Roman-Faizan Hussain (Track # 3), Ranjit Barot (Track # 5)
Lyricist: Amitabh Bhattacharya (Track # 1, 2, 4), Agnel Roman-Faizan Hussain (Track # 3)

1- Pinacolada - (Aditi Singh Sharma & Neeti Mohan): The composition of this track has so 'yesteryear' feeling. There is absolute nothing new in it except some remix-y touches here and there. The piƱa colada is a sweet, rum-based cocktail made with rum, cream of coconut, and pineapple juice, usually served either blended or shaken with ice. Lyrics are ordinary. Only good positive is singers who have done a good job. Better skin this one. Rating 1.5/5

2- Pinacolada (Remix) - (Aditi Singh Sharma & Neeti Mohan): Same story. Lack of freshness in the track kills it. This cocktail fails to get you high. Rating 1.5/5

3- Chaahatein - (Sharmistha Chatterjee): A composition with haunting sounds which only suits in a horror flick. Violin and Piano have been used as main instruments in arrangements. Lyrics are ok. Sharmishtha Chatterjee behind the mic who has done awesome job. Composition is decent, but doesn't have anything extraordinary. Rating 2.5/5

4- Tera Reham - (Shreya Ghoshal): Another haunting composition, but this time Shreya is behind the mic and she can make any song listenable. The slow composition works and meaningful lyrics do add much to it. Xylophone, Shreya and slow catchy tunes makes this track the best track in the whole soundtrack. Rating 3.5/5

5- Darr Theme - (Ranjit Barot): It has some good haunting sounds, but there is not anything you are going to miss if you decide to skip it. Rating 2/5
