Shankar-Eshaan-Loy to triumph with 'Don'Sep 18, 2006 Priyanka Bedi
Music lovers have been waiting for "Don" anxiously - and the wait has been worth it.
The music is not only stimulating but it also takes them back in time. The credit goes to the team of composers Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyricist Javed Akhtar.
Akhtar has penned catchy lyrics for the title song "Main hoon Don", which is composed beautifully by the trio. Shaan, who signs this track with great fervour, has done justice.
Though it is completely different from the classic "Main hoon Don" number it hardly makes a difference to listeners. The composers have taken inspiration from the West for the remix version, which suits the contemporary mood of 'Don' and seems to be the right party song.
"Yeh mera dil pyaar ka deewana" is the next track and the trio has added their own beats to give it a contemporary feel. Sunidhi Chauhan renders her voice to the song and sets the groove.
Picturised on Kareena Kapoor, the song is good and Kareena tries to put in her best to make it as likeable as the one shot on Helen.
Then comes "Maurya re", a Ganpati song sung by Shankar Mahadevan. The album, which is dominated by western music, changes track with 'Maurya re'. The composers move on to Indian beats.
The next one is "Khaike paan Banaraswala". It will surely to enthral audience all over again.
"Aaj ki raat" is one of the best of the lot and lingers on the mind. Musical instruments, the core of the cabaret tracks of the late 70s, are used for this song.
Alisha Chinoy is a perfect choice for a westernised song like this.
One can sum up by saying Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy has done exceedingly well with the soundtrack "Don" and it will help them to establish their supremacy.
