Music Producer – Sachin – Jigar
Lyrics – Jaydeep Sahani

Right from “Shor In The City” to “ABCD” to “Issaq” to “Shuddh Desi Romance”, and with so many brilliant compositions in between, Sachin-Jigar are on a momentous journey of their lifetime! Another talented duo of music composers in bollywood! Although Shuddh Desi Romance’s music doesn’t fit into “exceptional” category, the tracks carry a unique freshness, conducing to Shuddh Desi Romance indeed! The music complements well with the freshness we have seen in the trailers of the movie.

“Tere Mere Beech Mein” is one of those songs in which you will just love Sunidhi’s voice. I have been repeating this so many times, the low scale songs bring out the beauty hidden in Sunidhi’s voice (just like in “Kyon” in Barfi, or “Mere haath mein” from Fanaah). Mohit as usual doubs his idyllic voice onto the musical canvas so effectively that we just hate Sushant’s voice in the middle of the song, albeit its ONLY 6 words. But parineeti’s voice is too sexy for the song! The way she says “chaddar”, “Baatein”, “Kya hai”. Adds more beauty to the song!

Jaydeep Sahani’s lyrics are very desi and simple and the guitar in the song is simply charming!

“Gulaabi” – This song is sung by Husband-wife duo, Sachin Saraiya and Priya Panchal. The last time I had loved Sachin’s voice was in “Sorry” from ABCD. This song is way too addictive! The signature tune on harmonium syncs our heart with the song just when the rhythm starts! I loved the way each stanza ends with the same sentence sung in two different tunes… one going from low to high notes, other coming revers, both crossing each other (“Lagata hai mai rahun gulaabi re). This song perfectly depicts the new love 🙂
Although it’s all gulaabi gulaabi, the song isn’t girlish :D. Most of the part is sung by Sachin. I toh loved it!

The title track “Shuddh Desi Romance” is fun to listen to and the other track “Chanchal Man Ati Random” is average one.

This album contains five more instrumental tracks “Muzhe kiss kar sakte ho” (Serious start slowly transforming into playful music – brilliant use of very light harmonium with bass and guitar), “Love in Jaypur” (typical Rajasthani Pastoral and folk feel with Jazzy mix !), “Tez Waala Attraction” , “Boyfriend Banoge” (Gulaabi guitar! Aaahaan… Are these tracks Pariniti’s transforming phases in the movie in order? Pehle ‘Muzhe kiss…’, and now ‘Boyfriend Banogey’).

And the last instrumental “Bhanwara ma bhatake” – I loved the flute 🙂

Overall, Sachin-Jigar have been successful in not making these tracks too romantic (because this is not Aashiqui-2 boss!), yeah they have cooked this perfectly to make it sound romantically fresh with no strings attached. I will give 3/5 stars to this discography. As I said, the other two tracks could have been better. Now let’s wait and listen to the background score. I am sure it won’t be disappointing…. we can feel it in the instrumental tracks!
