Break Ke Baad – Music Review

You can listen to the soundtrack here.

Adhoore, the track that has already made its debut on TV, is the usual Vishal Shekhar fare, youthful and buoyant. For all you know it could have been part of I Hate Luv Storys or Anjaana Anjaani. And just like the tracks in those movies, this one too will make you feel good, Vishal Dadlani and Alyssa Mendonsa taking good care of the vocals section. Alyssa’s voice has a very ethereal quality about it I should say. The remix is good enough, not deviating a lot from the original apart from the tempo. Ajab Leher, with its funk-based elements, is brilliantly orchestrated, Neeraj Shridhar leading the vocals this time with the composers providing harmonic support in places. The sedate melody Dhoop Ke Makaan works beautifully in both its versions, more alluring in the acoustic form courtesy the magnificent guitar portions. Shekhar’s voice seems to occasionally take on a Vishal-like raspy edge rendering this one, and he is well-supported by Sunidhi.

Rock-based tracks have always been Vishal Shekhar’s forte but they have always sort of interspersed rock with melody. In Dooriyan Zaroori Hai though they go for an out-and-out rock composition, and pull it off in style to produce a very impressive track. The western theme continues with another rock-based track called Main Jiyoonga rendered by the extremely promising Nikhil D’Souza. The same song comes in an even better-sounding English version, Don’t Worry About Me that tones down the rock elements accentuating the melody factor. Vishal Dadlani absolutely revels in the delivery of this song.

I Hate Luv Storys, Anjaana Anjaani and now this, not to forget a song in Walkaway. After a dormant first half of 2010 Vishal Shekhar are suddenly on a roll! Though keeping marginal utility in mind it would be better if they returned to the youth romance movies maybe ek Break Ke Baad?! 🙂
