Lipstick Under My Burkha Music Review

By Tulsi, Bollywood.com News Network

The Konkana Sen Sharma, Ratna Pathak Shah, Aahana Kumra and Plabita Borthakur starrer has been in news for a lot of months for its on-going controversy with the censor board. 
 
Why? Because its bold, daring, and shows a bunch of powerful women doing whatever the hell the want! And that, of course, is threatening to a certain other bunch of people (men). 
 
The film won the Spirit of Asia Prize and the Oxfam Award for Best Film on Gender Equality in Tokyo and Mumbai. As for its music album, it’s a short, 3-song album that’s as interesting as the title of the film.  
 
1. Jigi Jigi 
A qawwali-style number opens the album in Malini Awasthi’s powerhouse of a voice. The lyrics are interesting, with a lot of naughty connotations. 
 
2. Ishquiya
Upbeat and sensuous the second song takes you back to the 70s where disco-themed songs and cool instruments took over parties and evenings. Neeti Mohan lends her voice for this one, and as always, she’s pretty good. 
 
3. Le Li Jaan
A whole lot of jazz and Zebunnisa Bangash’s voice, this album surely ends with a bang. Zebunnisa is a Pakistani composer and singer, which is why you haven’t heard this gorgeous voice before. Don’t you love it? I sure do!
 
A short album that shows the fantasies, sexual awakening and liberalization of women in a very different, creative way. At first you may feel that these songs have absolutely nothing to do with the messaging of the film. However, listen again!
