Poshter Boyz – Music Review (Marathi Movie Soundtrack)

You can listen to the songs at the end of the review.

The title song conveys the light-heartedness of Poshter Boyz quite well, starting with that very characteristic sing-song intro by Shreyas Talpade (who also happens to be producer of the movie). The techno track is peppered with folk elements all through, and the lead singers Avadhoot Gupte and Bela Shende deliver the vocals very nicely. Deva Deva Kamaal Bhaari goes through interesting twists and turns in just over 4 minutes. The way it starts off with those guitars, one would expect a serene melodic piece, but just about a minute into the song the percussion kicks in and the song itself suddenly turns into a vibrant folk piece. Another minute or so later the song switches mode again, this time Lesle Lewis going for a bossa nova-type arrangement to back Nandesh Umap, Swapnil Bandodkar and Bela Shende’s singing, and the song ends on a lavani note, sung brilliantly by Bela. Kshan He starts off as a soft melody, with Shankar Mahadevan singing at a dangerously low register that we hardly hear him sing at. The song gradually picks up pace and pitch as it goes and engages all along, both for its appealing tune and the singing by Shankar (and some beautiful flute).

Poshter Boyz. Short, but very effective Marathi debut by Lesle Lewis.
