No One Killed Jessica: The Music

Music: Amit Trivedi
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya

1. Dilli (03:52)
Singers: Aditi Singh Sharma, Shriram Iyer, Tochi Raina
Unconventionally--Hardcore--Kick-ass. Mixed well. Sung well.

2. Aali Re (04: 55)
Singers: Aditi Singh Sharma, Anushka Manchanda, Biswasjit Chakraborty, Raja Hassan, Shriram Iyer, Sonika Sharma, Sonu Kakar, Tochi Raina

A song for Delhi-based "Phaadu" journo who is introduced by Mumbai greeting "Aali Re", of which the starting vocal bits is just like a Telugu rap. Err? Unwelcomed, critically. However, singers seems promising. A long list of singers, indeed.

3. Aitbaar (04:41)
Singers: Mame Khan, Robert Omulo (Bob), Vishal Dadlani
Music elements gives Hong-Kong-Shanghai feel. Progresses well to give you another rock. Indeed, a dark effect.

4. Dua (05: 57)
Singers: Amitabh Bhattacharya, Joi Barua, Meenal Jain, Raman Mahadevan
A song for peace. Ek Lau from Aamir by Amit himself is way ahead than this. Starts on a low note rises to higher to give you goosebumps, but the magic seems less created.

5. Yeh Pal (06: 01)
Singer: Shilpa Rao
Dark haunting start-off. Some good variations in the vocal. As progresses, it goes off the soundtrack. Ends well to suit as a background score.

6. Dilli Hardcore (03:50)
Singers: Aditi Singh Sharma, Shriram Iyer, Tochi Raina
Find any difference? Anyways, the original is actually hardcore.

The overall genre of the album remains rock. A dark music, indeed. Salutes to Amit Trivedi - Amitabh Bhattacharya combo for innovation and introducing variations in the Indian vibes. Apart from conceptual criticism for "Aali Re", it remains a song to tap on your feet. A remix version would have energized for a party dance mood instead. Dilli and Aitbaar is the best pick that overshadow others. Like Aamir, Dev D, Udaan, this album is your another companion while in dark-gloom mood.
