Music Review - Tanhaji: The Warrior Not Sung

Album: Tanhaji: the warrior not sung

A multi-starrer biographical action drama, ' Tanhaji: the warrior not sung ', has been directed by Om Raut. Set in the 17th century and based on Tanaji Malusare’s life as the military leader of king Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj, the film stars Ajay Devgn, Saif Ali Khan (as the antagonist), Kajol, Jagapathi Babu and Sharad Kelkar. The film has Ajay reuniting with Saif, his 'Omkara' (2006) co-star. They’ve also worked together in 'Kachche Dhaage' (1999).

The three song album has been composed by Ajay-Atul , Sachet - Parampara and Mehul Vyas. The songs have been written by Swanand Kirkire and Anil Verma.

The first song 'Shankara Re Shankara', sung and composed by Mehul, has Ajay Devgn showing skillful movements that have been choreographed by Ganesh Acharya. Mehul makes full use of the traditional tutari wind instrument to show the challenge that Ajay portrays throughout the catchy song.

Composers Ajay-Atul have always given us some of the most melodious, unforgettable numbers and 'Maay Bhavani' is no less. The composer duo has once more excelled in the beautiful merging of different tempos, and deftly woven in the varied nuances of classical and folk in one single package. Ace singers Sukhwinder Singh and Shreya Ghosal literally own the track with their expert rendition. Swanand Kirkire’s lyrics are noteworthy.

Starting with an alaap that invokes a fierce fighting spirit, the war song 'Ghamand Kar' is all that one needs to hear before going to the battlefield and combines perfectly with the script. This situational track has been sung and composed by Sachet Tandon and Parampara Thakur. Marathi voices are from Ganesh Chandanshive.
