Rating: 2.5/5 stars
Bolo Har Har Har
Undoubtedly, the best and most powerful song of the album, Bolo Har Har Har perfectly describes the theme of Shivaay. It has a devotional feel with its chants and also has youthful beats which give it a modern flavor. Mithoon has given the song a great pace. Uplifting voices of Mohit Chauhan and Sukhwinder Singh, Badshah’s rap and then a beautiful closure by Megha Sriram Dalton make this a potent song. The song is a story-teller in itself.
Romantic track Darkhaast starts off well but it won’t grow on you and doesn’t have much impact. Considering the song is crooned by Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan, Darkhaast doesn’t match the level of that romantic melody. Mithoon even made the song a lengthy one. It looks good when you watch it with a storyline but otherwise not memorable.
We wanted this song to be special because it has been voiced by Kailash Kher but it was just an ordinary song describing pain. Why not make this song an upper pitched one when you have Kailash Kher whose signature style is exactly like that? Tere Naal Ishqa is a decent song but not good enough for you to keep in your playlist.
Raatein is a silently beautiful song and it becomes sweet by the kiddish voice of Jasleen Royal. This song has a pleasant aura and is joyful. We liked the Reprise version of Raatein even more because it has an orchestra type of vibe, which gives the song a deep value.
Shivaay’s music album is not quite impressive. Its Bolo Har Har Har and Raatein songs make impact but rest of the songs don’t create any mark. We are sure, these songs will have a great relevance with the narrative so it would make much sense while watching the film but as an album, it is not effective.
