Minimum tracks get maximum effect in 'Murder 3' album

Film: "Murder 3"; Music Directors: Pritam Chakraborty and Mustafa Zahid; Lyricist: Sayeed Quadri; Singers: Shafqat Amanat Ali, KK, Mustafa Zahid, and Nikhil D'Souza; Rating- ****

One thing that sets them apart is that they keep churning out good music again and again, always meeting the expectations. With "Murder 3", one gets a bit sceptical initially as there are just four original songs in the film. However, the air is cleared once you put the tracks on loop. Mahesh Bhatt has roped in our own Pritam Chakraborty and Mustafa Zahid from across the border for the serene compositions that have been penned by Sayeed Quadri.

The album kicks off with "Teri jhuki nazar" and Shafqat Amanat Ali proves once again why he is one of the most sought after singers from Pakistan. He brings out the romantic flavour with such eloquence that it makes your heart skip a beat. The gentle rendition has some beautiful words. The composition with little bit of guitar sounds and minimal experimentation sets the ball rolling for the album.

"Mat aazma le" takes you to an all-together different territory as it delves into the pain and longing of not being together with the special one of your life. The duo of KK and Pritam do justice to the tender wordings of Quadri. The sound of violin alongside the vocals gets the desired effect, but the song does not click with you in the first go. Listen to it a couple of times and then feel the melody growing on you.

It is followed by "Jaata hai tujhe", a peppy track crooned by Nikhil D'Souza, which transforms the mood of the album. It has some effectual electronic sounds by Pritam that sync well with the vocals. The chorus is equally engaging and the beats keep you grooving all the way. It also has a film version that is equally humable like the original.

Rounding up the album is "Hum jee lenge" where Mustafa Zahid gets into the act with soft guitar strums to start it off. It's a sad song with a difference as the singer's beautiful voice pacifies the ache rather than escalating it. But it is the composition, which is the true winner here as everything fits in place to make it a delectable soft rock number. Especially enterprising are the drumbeats that blend oh-so-well with the guitar sound and the vocals.

The rock version tries to step up the tempo with the guitar riffs and is more fast-paced than the original. However, despite giving it a few tries the original remains to the king of the ring.

The final verdict for "Murder-3" is that the soundtrack manages to impress even with few tracks in its kitty. However, the only stroke that ruins the picture here is that it leaves takers like me a bit disappointed, who expected some more music in the bag.
