Verdict: Situational melodies crucial to the film's narrative.
Bollywood seems to be fascinated by gangsters and that is why within a single month, we are witnessing two films being made on two of Mumbai`s most powerful underworld dons – Arun Gawli and Dawood Ibrahim. Guns and goons, no doubt, look intriguing as well as captivating on-screen. Thus, when such a story is narrated on celluloid, what awaits the common man is a lot of adventure, thrill, and mystery.
Apoorva Lakhia's biographical crime film Haseena Parkar will hit the screens on September 22. Wth so much written and said about the lady don, we are sure the film is going to be a cinematic treat. Shraddha Kapoor, being the titular character, sheds away her image of the girl next door and will be seen opposite her real-life brother, Siddhant Kapoor. The latter will play the character of Dawood.
The film’s album composed by Sachin–Jigar does not boast of a rich musical experience but is situational and to the point. Consisting of four songs, the lyrics for all have been penned down by Priya Saraiya, Vayu, and Kirthi Shetty. Here is a complete review of all songs from the film.
A quintessential love song, Tere Bina is for all the eternal lovers out there. Sung by everyone’s favorites, Arijit Singh and Priya Saraiya, this number is soothing and pictures the budding love between Shraddha Kapoor and Ankur Bhatia. The sound of the flute and strokes add perfect romance.
In complete contrast to the poetic Tere Bina, Bantai is full of Mumbaiya language and it is the song’s rawness that adds authenticity to it.
Piya Aa is a typical cabaret number featuring Indo–Australian beauty Sarah Anjuli. Sunidhi Chauhan was definitely the right choice for this retro foot-tapping song. Piya Aa is soon going to be the ultimate party number.
Tere Bina (Version 2)
This is a slower, yet soulful female version of Tere Bina sung by Priya Saraiya alone. We are sure you would find yourself humming the song once you listen to it.
