In terms of an idea movie like Chhapaak, one expects a situational soundtrack at finest. Furthermore, director Meghna Gulzar has a sure model of music in her movies and one is assured of that with Gulzar because the lyricist. Shankar – Ehsaan – Loy are the composers of Chhapaak which has simply 4 songs.
Arijit Singh will get to croon three out of 4 songs in Chhapaak and none of those is a romantic quantity. Title track ‘Chhapaak’ comes subsequent and it narrates the plight of how a number of drops of acid can scar an individual for all times. This one in actual fact has the form of sound that one associates with Vishal Bhardwaj, given the form of collaborations that he has had with Gulzar over time.
Siddharth Mahadevan comes behind the mike for a love track ‘Nok Jhok’ which is once more situational in enchantment. Not the form of track that one would count on to have a chartbuster enchantment, it in actual fact has the form of sound that one heard again within the 90s as part of Indi-pop albums. A good quantity which is soothing to hearken to, although not fairly anticipated to cowl a protracted distance.
It’s again to Arijit Singh as he begins from the place he left within the title track ‘Chhapaak’. This time across the track in query is ‘Khulne Do’ and the theme is that of hope and perception round one thing good about to occur. The track has an abnormal tune and does not actually carry the form of pull that may make a listener play it on repeatedly after listening to it as soon as. There’s a little bit of a observe up model of the track although that comes within the type of ‘Sab Jhulas Gaya’, and the outcomes are simply the identical.
As anticipated, the music of Chhapaak is strictly situational and the recollection is restricted to only its placement within the movie’s narrative.
