Sadiyaan

One of the top actors of the ‘70s and ‘80s, Shatrughan Sinha started his career playing a peripheral role in the 1969 release Sajan. His children are having it a lot easier now – while his daughter Sonakshi debuts opposite Salman Khan, his son Luv Sinha plays the lead in Raj Kanwar’s epic love story Sadiyaan. The music for this film has been composed by Adnan Sami.
The album opens with the melodious Jaadu nasha ehsaas kya by Shaan and Sadhana Sargam, though the credits wrongly mention Shreya Ghosal as the female singer. It’s great to listen to the extremely gifted but underutilised Sadhana, and Shaan compliments her well.

Taaron bhari hai yeh raat sajan (Adnan Sami and Sunidhi Chauhan) is a typical Adnan composition, a strong reminder of his earlier non-film compositions. Surprisingly, Sunidhi sounds shrill while rendering the high notes in this number.

Sargoshiyon ke kya silsile hain (Shreya Ghosal and Raja Hassan) is the pick of the lot. Having impressed everyone with this singing on several music-based reality shows, Raja holds himself well opposite the experienced Shreya in this ballad. Another highlight of this song is the brilliant use of the piano by Adnan.

Dekha tujhe pehli baar by Shaan is average fare. On the other hand, Manmauji matwala, an energetic, fun Punjabi number by Mika, is a good one-time listen.

Sona lagda mahi sona lagda (Richa Sharma and Sabri Brothers) has potential but disappoints and Pehla pehla (Kunal Ganjawala and Sunidhi Chauhan) seems like a track straight out of the ‘90s. Though Rekha Bharadwaj is in fine form in the title track Sadiyaan ve, the song, at 8:40 minutes, is painfully long. Compared to his previous album Chance Pe Dance, Adnan does a better job as music director but sadly, it’s not enough.

Verdict: Above average
