Chikni Chameli was out earlier this week, even a preview of its video is out on TV. And after multiple listens, the song is still as much of an energy booster to me as it was the first time, courtesy big time to Shreya Ghoshal. With Ajay Atul's addictive heavy-on-percussion Marathi arrangement (a rehash of their own Kombadi Palali from the Marathi film Jatra) and Amitabh Bhattacharya's cheeky lyrics alongside the vocals, Chikni Chameli is a perfect item number, at least music-wise. In O Saiya the composers take a U-turn, providing a template that is ambient and for a large part minimal. And where they take exception from the minimalism the effect is mindblowing, be it the use of the santoor or the choral elements or the percussion. The crescendo-esque turn that the strings section takes at the fag end is the icing on the cake. Roop Kumar Rathod never fails when it comes to classical-based renditions, this song is no exception. And Ajay Atul go back to the high percussion base in Gunguna. Not on the same level as the previous two songs, but entertaining nevertheless. Sunidhi does most of the singing, with a short but nice cameo by Udit towards the end. Sad that the man is heard so less in Hindi these days.
And with that the composers try their hand at Sufi, and pull off a winner in Shah Ki Rutba too. Starting on a typical Muslim song beat template (wherein it is reminiscent slightly of ARR's Al Maddath Maula) the song shifts tempo halfway through, driving you to a climactic trance mode. Brilliant job by Sukhwinder Singh, Anand Raaj Anand and Krishna Beura. A contrasting switch happens again with the next song, Sonu Nigam nicely delivering a sweet soulful Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin. Lovely use of instruments again, which mitigates the overall dj vu feel of the song. And Ajay Atul end the soundtrack with a genre which made me their fan in the first place, devotional. Deva Shree Ganesha sees the composers once again put their acumen with percussion to good use. Though not as impactful for me as their Shree Ganeshaaya Dheemahi, the effect is still quite awe-inspiring, complete with another superb latter half tempo-change where the lyrics take a surprise diversion from Ganesh-stuti to extolling Krishna, Rama et al (The piece Achutham Keshavam has interestingly featured in their devotional album Vishwatma as well, albeit in a different tune). Heady, to sum up. One half of the duo, Ajay Gogawale, does the honors on the vocals, his voice taking on a Sukhwinder-esque edge in places.
After a couple of false starts earlier this year, Ajay Atul have truly arrived in Bollywood with Agneepath!

Music Aloud Rating: 8.5/10
Top Recos: Hard to handpick. I loved all of them!

Beautiful innovative music, worth of listenning
Music review of

Agneepath  (2012 - Hindi)

 
Agneepath cumulative rating: 4 out of 5 Predicted: 18 votes

Agneepath cumulative music rating: 8 out of 10 (music)

1. Chikni Chameli - A good remake of a popular Marathi Song-'Kombadi Palali..'. But, still surprisingly different instruments and acoustics.

2. O Saiyyan - Beautiful start to an interesting-rhythmic track with Piano and in comes Roop kumar Rathod with soothing background singers. A very theatrical song which talks about pain.

3. Gun Gun Guna - The refreshing song, based on the orthodox music which we generally like to listen, but still fits into your mind. Udit Narayan is present just for the sake of it.

4. Shah Ka Rutba - A Qawwali like song, where we listen to tough Sukhwinder with Anand Raaj Anand & Krishna Beura as supporting singers. It is a song 'to praise a human being as he is the special one to be blessed by the powers'. They did their best to lift the song.

5. Abhi Mujh mein - An instrumental delight from the maestros. With Sonu Nigam's beautiful vocals, it takes you to the peak and then calming things down. It also make you feel the Powerful lyrics, the intelligent music and the tabla that flirts with Sonu Nigam in the second antra. My pick of this album.

6. Deva Shree Ganesha - Yes, the anticipated explosion of 'Dhol, Taasha, Shankh, Tutari, etc. in the typical 'Ajay-Atul' style in whole new World(of Hindi Music). A good song to blow in full volume. Atul blares it out in his own voice. The music setting is shouting only two things - Praise for the God and Energy. Deserves Hands up!

Ajay-Atul (the music directors) are definitely here to rock and the Lucknow lad Amitabh Bhattacharya (Lyricist) is a boon to the hindi film industry.

Definitely good work by the duo.

Agneepath (Music review), Hindi – Ajay-Atul

Deva shree Ganesha plays out in filmy-frenzy bhajan format, but the duo crank up the creativity in the interludes, and the backgrounds. Chikni chameli turns out to be average fare – the composers reuse their own Jatra number from Marathi, but the rest of the country has already channeled this typical Marathi sound into South Indian Kuthu many times. Udit makes a late entry into the infectious Gun gun guna re, and, with Sunidhi, they own the tune fabulously! Addictive sufi rhythm rules Shah ka rutba, but even here, the complex tune and interludes are nuanced enough to relish during repeated listens; it does get flattened in 80s style, but that operatic bit in the end is a nice touch. But the soundtrack belongs to Sonu Nigam's Abhi mujh mein and Roop Kumar Rathod's O Saiyyan; these songs are a solid triumph in composing, with extraordinarily beautiful tunes – magnificent violin in the former, recalling Ilayaraja, and strong hint of raag Charukesi in the latter, a move that can hardly go wrong, particularly in the hands of composers like Ajay and Atul. Agneepath is what one could ideally call as the Hindi debut of Marathi composing duo Ajay-Atul; outstanding debut, this!
