Music Review - ISHQIYA (Hindi – Vishal Bhardwaj)

The mesmerisingly lilting and vaudevillian Dil to bachcha hai is reminiscent of the Raj Kapoor era, but a more pronounced inspiration seems to be Webber’s Cats tune, Memories — the prelude, in particular, is shockingly uncredited, and similar.

Ibn-e-batuta’s joyously unrestrained pigeon-call and the interesting duet featuring Sukhwinder and Mika is vintage Vishal-Gulzar material.

Out of the two songs by Rekha Bharadwaj, Badi dheere’s subtle cross-over from its Farida Khanum’ish base is more evolved than the more conventional ghazallike Ab mujhe koi, which, by that very nature is more approachable. Usual musical treat from Vishal barring that niggling Memories quibble.
