Ahard-hitting film like Sarbjit doesn’t leave much scope for music but director Omung Kumar has packed in 10 songs in the upcoming biopic. The consistency of folk-based Indie sounds throughout is applause worthy.

No album these days seems to be complete without a composition by Amaal Mallik and the vocals of Arijit Singh. Opening the album with this winning combination, Salamat is a soft, romantic ballad. The music arrangements are limited yet beautifully woven and layered according to the verses, with each verse merging with a new sound, from anklet beats, to the harmonium, flute and ghatam. Tulsi Kumar’s voice blends well with Singh’s.

The album gets a forlorn touch with Jeet Gannguli’s Dard, aptly sung by Sonu Nigam. The composer has given ghazal treatment to the arrangements and the composition is minimalistic but effective.

After two slow songs, the album picks up pace with Tung lak, a celebratory track backed by the power-packed vocals of Sukhwinder Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shail Hada and Kalpana Gandharv. The song, composed by Shail Pritesh, is heavy on folk Punjabi bhangara beats.

Shail-Pritesh have composed five songs in the album. After Tung lak, the composer duo has offered aqawwali number, Meherban. The situational number has a touch of Sufi blending with qawwali-style arrangements. Sukhwinder Singh, Shail Hada and Munnawar Masoom have sung this slow, devotional track. Their third song, Barsan laagi, sung by Hada, has a semi-classical feel with a Thumri raga. The composition is layered with the guitar and percussion beats. A similar style of composition is also heard in the song Mera junoon.

Rabba by Tanishk Bagchi is yet another sad song. The highlight of the track is the voice of Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan. Bagchi has also composed a qawwali number, Allah hu allah, an energetic devotional number which features an interesting merger of the electric guitar, tabla and flute. The track is sung by Shashaa Tirupati, Altamash and Rabbani Mustafa Khan.

The soulful vocals of Arijit Singh come back for the lullaby, Nindiya, composed by Shashi Shivam. The composition brings about a calming effect with lyrics by Sandeep Singh adding to the mood.

The album concludes with the Sarbjit theme track composed by Shail-Pritesh, who have successfully summarised the story by bringing in the right amount of anguish.

Verdict: A soundtrack that reflects the flavour of the film.
