laal-rang-musicWith a hard-hitting topic like illegal trade of blood, upcoming film Laal Rang had just two options for music – keep it minimal and let the story be the hero or have exceptional music that would seamlessly blend in with the plot. Since the film is based on real incidents in Haryana, it needed a distinctively local music flavour, for which the director has got composers like Mathias Duplessy, Vipin Patwa and Shiraz Uppal.

Vipin Patwa kick-starts the album with Bhang ragad ke, a recreation of the raagini Tu raja ki raj dulari with lyrics by Mange Ram Koch. The composer has maintained a wonderful balance between with the classic and contemporary. Without losing the classical touch, the musical arrangements of the track feature rock elements blended with trance and desi arrangements. Renowned Haryanvi singer Vikas Kumar has done a perfect job.

French composer Mathias Duplessy, who has also composed the background score of the film, has experimented with the desi style for Bawli booch. With the desi elements combining soft rock brought into the orchestration, it sets the mood of the track and once again showcases Kumar’s talent. The arrangements are catchy yet simple, highlighting the romantic lyrics by Dushyant Kumar.

The flavour of the album changes with Shiraz Uppal’s Mera mann, a romantic track that breaks away from the Haryanvi structure. The arrangements are quintessentially Bollywood and features classic Sufi elements. With the simple lyrics of Shakeel Sohail and the vocals of Kashif Ali and Uppal, the song is easy on the ear. The song offers a catchy hook and is well rendered by Ali.

Duplessy is back with the fusion track Aye khuda, sung by Mukhtiyar Ali and Sameer Khan. The orchestration is the highlight of the track and the escalating progression of the composition elevates the number. The musical arrangements feature some great fusion of guitar, violins and percussion. The lyrics by Kausar Munir, about a conversation with God, are another highlight of this track. This is one of the best tracks of the album.

Laali, once again Duplessy’s composition, is a commendably created thematic number that highlights the plot. The well written track by Munir has been sung by Sameer Khan, who has succeeded in mirroring the haunting feel of the number. The composer has once again experimented with his compositional style, this time bringing in a well-orchestrated piece heavy on Western instruments.

The Haryanvi flavour returns as the album ends with Patwa’s Kharch karod, created in two versions. While the original is a slow and sad song, the tempo of the second version is quite fast. Vikas Kumar has not only sung the track but also penned its lyrics with the rap by Patwa.

Verdict: A well-executed, culturally-rich album.
