One has huge expectations from the music of Thugs of Hindostan since this is inarguably the biggest release of 2018 so far. Moreover, with lead cast of Aamir Khan and Katrina Kaif, one expects a blockbuster score no less. Ajay-Atul, after creating some beautiful melodies in Dhadak, come together again for Thugs of Hindostan which has lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya.
The soundtrack kick-starts with a celebration number ‘Vashmalle’ which has the sound of ‘aa ra ra ra’ right at the beginning, hence bringing on the retro appeal. This one has the kind of sound that one associates with a period drama and the manner in which Sukhwinder Singh and Vishal Dadlani sing this one justifies the theme. Amitabh Bachchan and Aamir Khan come together for this number which is situational at best. Yes, the song has been orchestrated very well but this one is not the sort of song that can be heard repeatedly in a standalone mode.
‘Manzoor-e-Khuda’ is the last song of the album and this one has Shreya Ghoshal and Sunidhi Chauhan coming together for Katrina Kaif. Coming across as the kind of number that appears during the pre-climax or climax of the film, it reminds one of the kind of sound that was evidenced in ‘Gazar Ne Kiya Hai Ishaara’ [Tridev]. Sukhwinder Singh also steps in soon enough with Ajay Gogavale chipping in and after listening to the song, all that one primarily looks forward to is how it is all presented on screen. Eventually it would all boil down to scale and grandeur.
For a biggie like this, one expected an epic score. However, leave aside being epic; there isn’t much to even celebrate quantity wise since there are just three songs in there. A disappointing score.
