I’m late this time for SOTW! Initially started off as an Every-Saturday feature, it took a beating last week as I was visiting my parents and was busy with – you know – all the stuff that one does when they visit their parents! 🙂 I haven’t listened to any new music up until then anyway.
You know you hear a lot of “hit” music these days and almost all of it sounds like – well this is catchy, but it feels like I have heard something like this before! It’s a fact that truly original music is almost on the verge of disappearing. And yet, out of all this, there comes a song suddenly that really takes your breath away with its beauty. And it has happened again when I listened to a new Hindi song recently. I think the last time this happened was also for a Bollywood movie – Badlapur! Those songs haunt me to this day!
The Song of the Week for me is unequivocally – Bezubaan, from the movie Piku.
I love the layers in this. How the composer Anupam Roy subtly underlays guitars and sitar, the way his voice soars oh-so-beautifully, and most importantly the section starting at 3:40 – starting off with simple Sitar pattern and eventually ending in that wonderful crescendo!! (somehow reminding me of a Kodaline song)
This is exactly the reason I had to embed the full jukebox of the album here, as the other standalone versions of the song seem to miss this bit! But thankfully, it’s the first song so you don’t have to click anything!
But the whole album is so good that I really recommend you give all of the songs a go!
Good music, Good times.
