Music Review: Junooniyat (Hindi)

Composer(s): Ankit Tiwari, Jeet Gannguli, Meet Bros

Meet Bros significantly ravamp Stereo Nation's original song Nachange Saari Raat, the jarring 'club' and 'daaru' references in the second interlude doing its best to dampen whatever verve Neeraj Shridhar brings to the table (did anyone else think of Disco Deewane?). Ankit Tiwari doubles up as the singer alongside Tulsi Kumar for Ishqe Di Lat, whose less than effective vocals once again does its best to make the soulful melody sound lifeless. The title song gets two different treatments, something sufi and something techno, differentiated in terms of the composers Meet Bros and Jeet Gannguli, but lacklustre about sums them up both. Gannguli however leaves his unmistakable stamp in the mellifluous Mujhko Barsaat Bana Lo (Armaan Malik), while Meet Bros' third offering Pagalon Sa Naach is befitting a title for a song that is absurd and outright banal. Junooniyat's music is lazily assembled and as forgettable as it can get.
