Pink Music Review: This ‘pink’ doesn’t Really Glitter
Running my imagination wild, I just wondered how it would have seemed had Sunny Leone's 'Pink Lips' actually been used for the promotional campaign of Pink. Then I just came out of all the excitement with a shudder because after all, this Taapsee Pannu starrer in fact deals with a much grimmer affair and hence doesn't really have place for such item songs. So what does it actually offer? Well, let's check it out!
Jeenay De Mujhe is the first song to arrive and it is a complete antithesis of what I had actually expected right at the start of the soundtrack. This one is a Faiza Mujahid show all the way as she is in charge of all the three departments - music, lyrics and singing. She does a fair job with this song though honestly, there is nothing that one remembers about this tune even after hearing it a couple of times. A rock track, it could well have passed off as an ad jingle.
What does stay in your mind at least for a little while is Qurat Ul Ain Balouch's Kaari Kaari. A pathos filled number that has an arresting tune by Shantanu Moitra, it is also written quite well by Tanveer Ghazi. Expect this sad track to play in the background during one of the crucial moments of the film as the protagonists wonder whether there is any light at the end of the tunnel.
Well, there is light indeed in the next song that arrives which has 'roshni' as the part of the lyrics. Titled Tujhse Hi Hai Roshani, this has Anupam Roy stepping in for handling all the departments of the song creation. Anupam was an integral part of Shoojit Sircar's soundtrack for Piku and he makes his presence felt with Tujhse Hi Hai Roshniias well. However, just like his earlier soundtrack, he creates something situational all over again which doesn't really have any shelf life whatsoever beyond the film's play in theaters.
Jonita Gandhi leads the show for the title track Pink and no, it has absolutely nothing to do with 'Pink Lips'! Instead, this one has women power in the middle of affairs and has Irshad Kamil write the kind of lyrics that come with the territory. A song with a Western base to it, this one is composed by Anupam Roy with rapper EPR Iyer chipping in as well. Yet another theme track for which one wonders how it would play in the film.
The music of Pink is quite ordinary and doesn't really glitter. It won't really play on either before or after the film's release.
