Mohenjo Daro music has been composed by A.R Rahman. The lyrics have been written by Javed Akhtar. The film starring Hrithik Roshan is releasing on 12th August.
The album is quite short with just 3 original songs, one reprise and four instrumental tracks. This time, Rahman has not experimented much like his previous offerings Highway or Rockstar.
Now let’s take a look at Mohenjo Daro music review.
The title track has pretty much tribunal tunes. It does not have any resemblance to Indus Valley Civilization. The song give you period feel but the lyrics are disappointing. Arijit Singh's brilliant singing makes it a decent song. (2.5/5)
The second track is a tribute to river Sindhu (Indus River in Pakistan). The song has a nostalgic feel and forces you to think about the thousand years old civilization. Special mention to Javed Akhtar's superb lyrics. After few minutes Tu Hai portion from the fourth song gets started which could have been avoided as this was a tribute to Sindhu Maa. (3.5/5)
An interesting romantic track which grows on you. Shashaa Tirupati's soft voice makes it more compelling. But the lyrics are a let down as you will not be able to understand at few places. The tone is also South Indian. Rahman has experimented with the use of various instruments like bass percussion, tabla, flute and mandolin. (3/5)
The best song in the album and probably best of the year too. A.R Rahman creates magic not only with the creation but also with his voice. Sanah is also brilliant once again. The lyrics are almost perfect. (4/5)
There are also four instrumental tracks, Whispers of the Mind, Whispers of the Heart, The Summer of Sindhu and Lakh Lakh Tora. First two are quite interesting and grows on you. Summer of Sindhu is an instrumental version of Tu Hai and is quite pleasant to listen. Lakh Lakh Tora is an instrumental version of Sarsariya.
The magic of Tamasha, Highway or Rockstar is missing this time. A.R Rahman has not experimented a lot though the tunes are original mostly. The album has only three original songs which is a disappointment for such a big film. Overall the songs will appeal to Rahman lovers but it will not help Mohenjo Daro much.
