Pink – Music Review (Bollywood Soundtrack)


Songs at the end.

Jeenay De Mujhe is written and composed by Pakistani singer-songwriter Faiza Mujahid. Mujahid has a great voice and she carries off the attitude-laden singing very well but the rock-flavoured song feels very heard-before. This datedness of arrangement comes in the way of second composer Anupam Roy’s title track Pink as well. Working with director Shoojit Sircar for the second time after his memorable Bollywood debut last year (Piku), he gets Jonita Gandhi and Kolkata band Underground Authority’s rapper frontman Epr Iyer to deliver this one, and they do it well.

Roy has always excelled in rock songs and in Pink he gets to do that with Tujhse Hi Hai Roshni. Featuring some ace guitar and synthesiser portions, the song is sung by the composer himself in his characteristic style. The director’s older collaborator Shantanu Moitra delivers the soundtrack’s best though, in his sole offering titled Kaari Kaari. Sung by the talented Pakistani singer Qurat Ul Ain Balouch, Moitra sets the soulful melody to a waltzy triple time rhythm and lovely instrumentation—particularly the guitar and violins—and some imaginative touches like the veena.

Pink. Shoojit Sircar’s trusted composers give him one great song apiece in a soundtrack that would otherwise count among his weaker ones.

Rating: 3/5
