Mohenjo Daro – Music Review

Film/Album: Mohenjo Daro
Music: A.R. Rahman
Lyrics: Javed AKhtar
The great Magnum opus Mohenjo Daro looks stunning with our Greek God Hrithik Roshan and the poised beauty Pooja Hegde. For creating the album, the magical trio Rahman,  Gowarikar &  Akhtar have come together to put up a show for the audiences; and with these three, memories of Lagaan, Swades and Jodha Akbar revive and the expectations are soaring high with the Music!

TU HAI – The best of the lot. Attractive voices of Sanah Moidutty & Rahman himself with his dynamic range make it a pure melody!

Mohenjo Mohenjo – Good part is Arijit’s heartfelt Voice. Nice in parts but Drummy Tribal feel makes it a little jarring and its a Damn Long Song!

Sindhu Ma – Singing the praises of the Sindh river, lyrics could have been much better by the veteran lyricist. Begins with a tribal feel, gradually the song Tu hai breaks in, sung here for the Sindh River.

Sarsariya – Lovely Song. Gives me a feel of Barso Re Megha. Beautifully sung Shashaa Tirupati. Arijit’s voice is missed for male vocals.

Rahman is definitely brilliant with his background scores and the instrumentals here, prove it! Lakh Lakh thora is a sweet instrumental version of Sarsariya with lovely flute played!  Whispers of the Mind, Whispers of the Heart truly encompass natural feel and well blended voice of Arjun Chandy. Special attraction here is the cricket’s voice.

AR-Rahman-Mohenjo-Daro-1

Moreover, the music of Mohenjo, as Rahman himself said is truly a work of imagination as nothing is known of that era; but this experiment with a  folk and tribal feel involving percussion and tribal chants don’t seem to work. It feels like a jerk in between a melody!

Overall, Rahman well known for his elegant and imaginative refinement of music; fails to match up to his own levels. We love Rahman and expect a bit more.

WhatteSong’s Verdict – This music album is average!
