Marathi

The talented Bela Shende opens the album with Reshami Bandhane, which has a mellifluous violin piece to begin with. The track then sees a simple arrangement in terms of the flute and keyboard setting the rhythm. Jaanta Ajaanta (Male) sees the flute coming in, with Shaan trying his hand at Marathi vocals and sounding just right. The lyrics are endearing, simple and easy to connect with. Shankar Mahadevan renders the next track, Majhya Mana, sounding very authentic in terms of the diction. A simple key and bass drum keep the rhythm and the track has minimal instrumentation.

Tu Shwaas Saare (Male) has a different approach with the acoustic guitar and Kunal Ganjawala’s vocals blending in beautifully. Jaanta Ajaanta (Female) is the same as its male version and Akriti Kakkar makes a difference with her seamless rendition. Tu Shwaas Saare (Female) on the other hand has a very different rhythmic approach, with Kakkar giving it a touch of her own simplicity. On the whole, one can call this a good effort but a little more instrumentation and experimentation would have made this better. The lyrics are actually impressive, as they cater and appeal to both the Marathi and non-Marathi crowd.
