Aggar Music Review
Film: “Aggar”; Music Director: Mithoon; Singers: Qurram, Rup, Roop Kumar Rathod, Tulsi Kumar, Sharmishtha, Mithoon, Hamza, Shilpa Rao, Kshitij; Rating: **1/2
Composer Mithoon provides variety in the album, but one thing is common to all tracks – romance and passion.
Arabian music makes its presence felt in the title track, “Aggar”, which is a completely sensuous and dreamy number. With soft, seductive music and impressive beats, the song, sung by newcomer Hamza and Reshammiya’s favourite, Tulsi Kumar, gives one a picture of what to expect on the big screen as well. While Mithoon’s music gets a thumb’s up, the highlight of the number is Hamza.
A completely sentimental number with romance, pain and love oozing out of it is “Ke bin tere”. Mithoon has not only composed it but also sung it. The lyrics by Sayeed Quadri are impressive and Hamza and Kshitij’s backing vocals deserve special mention.
“Nachle” comes in next. It is a happy-go-lucky track but it sounds like something went amiss somewhere. Quadri’s lyrics could have been better keeping in mind his calibre.
Continuing with the passionate and sensual tracks is “Paas aaya kyon”.
Sharmishtha’s sensuous and melodic voice is the surprise element of the song. It reminds the listener of compositions like “Tere bin” that comprise slow, pensive and melodic musical arrangements that are actually the important ingredients of successful music these days.
Roop Kumar Rathod returns after “Maula mere maula” in “Sehra” to create another enchanting track though not living up to the standards set by the former number.
“Sehra” is a complete ghazal and also has Shilpa Rao rendering her voice in the background. Though the music has been arranged interestingly, there is something in the track that can be boring. On the whole, a nice composition.
In spite of some enjoyable songs in “Aggar”, there’s no guarantee that the album will earn big bucks once it’s released.
