No Strong Musical Backing For Singham


Music Directors: Ajay Gogavale and Atul Gogavale
Lyricist: Swanand Kirkire
Singers: Sukhwinder Singh, Shreya Ghoshal, Ajay Gogavale, Kunal Ganjawala and Richa Sharma

National Award-winning music directors Ajay-Atul are known for their music in Marathi films, although they have given music for a few Bollywood films as well in the past. But in Singham the musical duo have not been able to explore many elements as the album has only three originals and it is not a musical film.

The album kickstarts with Sukhwinder Singh crooning the title track Singham that starts with mantra chants. The track is more of a song that will be used in the background than something that can be hummed. It is moderately-paced and introduces the character – an average beginning to the album.

Then comes a love ballad Saathiya that has Shreya Ghoshal behind the mike with backing vocals by composer Ajay himself. A sweet simple melody, the song grows on the listener.

Next is a track with slight Sufi influences – Maula maula. This too is romantic and has been sung by Kunal Ganjawala and Richa Sharma who complement each other completely. Although the composition is not very experimental, it still manages to generate interest and is quite likeable.

All the three songs have one remix each.

On the whole, not much can be said about the album because there are a very few songs. Not a music buff’s delight, but the songs might work well on screen.
