Kahaani: Music

Music: Vishal - Shekhar

1. Aamhi Shotti Bolchi (03:19)
Singers: Usha Uthup, Vishwesh Krishnamurthy, Shekhar Ravijiani
Lyrics: Vishal Dadlani

A jazzy start. Usha Uthup swings in with retro style of singing. Vishwesh and Shekhar's vocals layers it up heavy metal kind of growling. The entire arrangement offers you a complete headbanging material and lets you enjoy the feel of the Kolkata city fused into its quirky lyrics.

2. Piya Tu Kaahe Rootha Re (04:58)
Singer: Javed Bashir
Lyrics: Sandeep Srivastava

Javed's earthy vocal in an alaap with the Kolkata based music that clings till the end. Mixed well with the electric guitars to give a classical-rock fusion. The only part that irks is the techno sound in bits and pieces peppered over the track. Lyrically, one of the best of the album.

3. Kahaani (04:26)
Singer: K.K.
Lyrics: Vishal Dadlani

Nothing new about the kind of composition by the duo and K.K. is just an ordinary choice for such kind of track. Soft on ears, this may be a part of the background score for the film.

4. Tore Bina (05:53)
Singer: Sukhwinder Singh
Lyrics: Anvita Dutt

Potentially, this could be the best of this album. Fresh. All new when it comes to the collaboration of Sukhwinder and V-S. However, this song belongs to Sukhwinder. Strong and mellow. What draws back is the repetitiveness of lyrics and how it fails to reap, throughout the track, the music it layers in the beginning.

5. Kahani (Female) (04:27)
Singer: Shreya Ghoshal

This is more like an acoustic version of the title track by K.K. For me, this works better because what comes from guitars and Shreya's voice is pure honey!

6. Ekla Chalo Re (05:13)
Singer: Amitabh Bachchan
Additional vocals: Clinton Cerejo

With a joyous start of the English part, the vocals seems to make way for the grand voice to take over. Bachchan Saab renders this poem by Raindranath Tagore in his own manner with utmost affection making the part he has his very own. 

Coming out from their stereotype zone, delivering offbeat genre like Aamhi Shoti Bolchi, sounding original and ultimately marking their stamp on this album, the Vishal-Shekhar duo deserves accolades. Doing away with remixes, other unnecessary versions of songs or boring instrumentals, they have made this album pure and serene, thus delivering what the film's plot demands! Kudos! This would be a benchmark for other composers doing same genre!
