Citylights Music: Jeet gannguli, SONY MUSIC Rating: 3.5 stars
A multi-composer Composer Jeet Gannguli flies solo on this soundtrack. Muskurane (Romantic) is sung confidently and with a certain warmth by Arijit Singh and this comes across quite easily.
The Unplugged version, sung by Mohammed Irfan, is moody and has a haunting quality to it. Next up, Soney Do (Arijit, again) feels slightly mid-eastern, given the string-tinged opening. The song has kind of a noir feel to it. Ek Charraiya (Arijit) is something of a lullaby with a sparsely populated soundscape. The vacant feel grows even more pronounced in the Unplugged version, sung by Jeet himself.
The tension is palpable in Darbadar (Neeti Mohan) and the feeling of loss and longing is overbearing. The title song, CityLights, sung by Ustad Rashid Khan and Usha Uthup is quite an unexpected song. Usha brings in the edginess while the Ustad brings a semi-classical flavour, a combination that’s rarely utilised for title songs. This effort has its charms but is a little one-dimensional in theme for me. But there’s much to be appreciated here.
