Mohenjo Daro Music Review

By Tulsi, Bollywood.com News Network

The much looked forward to Hrithik Roshan starrer (or not so much anymore after the trailer’s release) set in 2016 BC in the era of the Indus Valley civilization in the ancient city Mohenjo-daro.

The movie is directed by Ashutosh Gowariker, and received a lot of flak (and trolling) when the trailer was released. The trailer is definitely not worth-while, but is the music album? Well, let’s go through it.

1. Mohenjo Mohenjo
The title track has Arijit Singh and A.R. Rahman coming together once again, along with Bela Shende, and Sanah Moidutty. More of a theme than a song really, it fails to create the magic that these lovely singers have managed to create before.

2. Sindhu Ma
A beautifully sung track in the voices of A.R. Rahman, along with Sanah Moidutty. The song is dedicated to the river Sindhu. It’s got a lovely feel and flow to it. There is a point where the track Tu Hai (which comes later in the album) is fused into the song, which is blissful!

3. Sarsariya
Sung by Shashwat Singh and Shashaa Tirupati, this track has a lovely use of instruments and music composition. It’s quite beautiful. The song has an instrumental version called Lakh lakh thora.

4. Tu Hai
Another A.R. Rahman and Sanah Moidutty track, romantic and beautiful again. The flute is absolutely lovely, and the entire feel is very larger than life. Undoubtedly the best song of the album. Honestly, the only one worth adding to your monsoon playlist. This track also has a beautiful instrumental version called The shimmer of sindhu.

5. Whispers of the mind
An enchanting  piece by Arjun Chandy. It’s a little too long though.

6. Whispers of the heart
Another version of the Whispers of the mind, this one slightly more soulful with the female singers coming to Arjun Chandy’s aid.

The entire album definitely does have a period feel and is quite unique. But with A.R. Rahman and Javed Akhtar (yes, he is the lyricist at work here) as a team, this album proves to be quite unimpressive for their standards.
