That brings in composer no. 2, Harpreet Singh. Harshmeet starts with an attempt at fusion, Deem Deem Tana. I am not sure if it was something in the arrangement or Shriram Iyer at the lead vocals, the song reminded me of something from the repertoire of OM The Fusion Band, a band that Iyer, Amit Trivedi, Amartya Rahut et al were part of a few years back. Where the composer really announces his entry though is the next track, Teri Justujoo (Saaware), a beautifully presented semiclassical melody. The vocals by Roop Kumar Rathod do evoke memories of some of his previous semiclassicals, but such trifles cease to matter relative to the beauty of the track. Bringing up the rear are two old songs from Agnee and Kailasa apiece and both impress as they did in their original appearance, Ujale Baaz with its sinister subdued arrangement, and Babam Bam with its ethereal invocation of Lord Shiva (which also has throat singing in the background in many places I noticed for the first time. Interesting.)
More amazing tunes from Sachin Jigar. A commendable debut from Harpreet Singh (assuming this is his debut). And a revisit of two good songs from Agnee and Kailasa. Applause to the musical sense of the makers of Shor In The City. Hoping they have an equally good movie sense, for the musicians’ sake more than anything else.
