Banjo, starring Riteish Deshmukh and Nargis Fakhri, is directed by Ravi Jadhav. The movie, which revolves around the struggle faced by banjo players, is slated to release on September 23. The film’s spirit lies in music and composer duo Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani have done a great job at adding a soulful touch to the massy street music of Mumbai. All the six tracks of the film have been penned by lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya. Here is the music review of Banjo.
Banjo Music All Set To Win Hearts
The music album of Banjo begins with Bappa, in the voice of Vishal Dadlani, which is a tribute to Ganpati Bappa. The high energy number is a perfect culmination of soul-rendering lyrics with a heavy use of guitar. However, it is the banjo interlude that is purely goose-bumping!
Next up is Udan Choo in the voice of Hriday Gattani. The song describes the heady feeling of early love and is absolutely hummable, thanks to the simplistic use of instruments and beautiful melody.
Rada, which is Riteish’s introduction song in the film, is rendered by Vishal Dadlani, Nakash Aziz, and Shalmali Kholgade. Replete with generous use of dhol, tasha, guitar, and banjo, the song is heavily inspired by rock music and yet retains the street flavour.
Banjo Lyrics To Leave A Great Impact On The Audiences
The next track is Pee Paa Ke, again crooned by Vishal and Nakash, is another upbeat number with a heavy use of the titular instrument. However, the English-cum-Marathi rap is the USP of this one.
Ajay Gogavale brings Rehmo Karam to life, which is a typical soulful Vishal-Shekhar number. A prayer song at heart, this track brings freshness to an otherwise upbeat soundtrack.
The last track is Om Ganapataye Namah Deva, again crooned by Vishal and Nakash, which sounds like a fast-paced Ganpati prayer sung by street musicians. The English vocals by Dadlani sets it apart from its contemporaries.
Overall, the music album of Banjo is not just another Bollywood album; it successfully experiments and brings out a new sound of music funk that you will hear on loop!
