SHAAPIT MUSIC REVIEW
Review by : Gayathri Sarangarajan
Music Director : Chirantan Bhatt, Nazam Sheraz, Aditya Narayan.
Vocals : Nazam Sheraz, Shreya Ghoshal, Aditya Narayan, Chirantan Bhatt, Hamza Faruqui, Sunidhi Chauhan.
Lyrics : Sameer, Nazam Sheraz, Aditya Narayan.
After Raaz and 1920, director Vikram Bhatt is now back with his next one – Shaapit. The movie also marks the debut of Aditya Narayan (Udit Narayan’s son).Shweta Agarwal plays the lead as well. The movie is a horror flick intertwined with a love story. Chirantan Bhatt has composed music and Sameer has penned the lyrics for the songs. However there are two numbers in the album one composed by Aditya and the other by Nazam Sheraz.

Tere Bina...
Vocals: Nazam Sheraz


A very soulful song that pulls at your heart! Nazam Sheraz has done an excellent work with the lyrics and also the singing. His voice is very powerful and magnetic. He has managed to bring the right feel of longing, loneliness and love in the song.

  Shaapit
 

Hawaayein...
Vocals:
Shreya Ghoshal


Composed by Chirantan Bhatt and lyrics are penned by Sameer. Shreya Ghoshal is as usual at her best here. There is nothing very different in the tune. Its very normal and sounds like already existing horror movie music. (You know when you hear the music you imagine a lady in white sari holding candle kinds) but Shreya’s voice has given life to the music making it interesting to listen. All credit to the singer for this song.

Chaahata Dil Tumko...

Vocals: Aditya Narayan


Aditya Narayan has sung this song. The advantage here I guess is that having acted and knowing the placement of the song in the movie he is able to understand and bring out the right feel. This song is commercial and doesn’t sound like a typical horror movie song. Yet again no big experiment with the music but the song sounds good on the ear.

Kabhi Na Kabhi...

Vocals: Aditya Narayan

The beginning of the song is slow and romantic. A very soft and melodious number sung by the hero himself. The song is also typical of Vikram Bhatt. Aditya has done a very good job with the singing. The instrumental bits in the beginning and in between give you the déjà vu feeling of going back to the 90’s where instrumentals were given importance and were also used to emphasize the tone and mood of the song.


The rock version has more life. Very peppy and energetic! The song will surely get many tapping their feet and is sure to be a hit with the chartbusters.

Hayaati...
Vocals:
Chirantan Bhatt, Hamza Faruqui

The beginning of the song reminds you of Mehboob Mere from Fiza may be it’s because of the beats. The song has an Arabian feel. The peppy beginning however is not sustained through out. As the song movies forward it becomes a routine Indi Pop type. A song that is a dance number should have made a good impression but this one is not catchy.


Shaapit Hua...
Vocals:
Aditya Narayan, Sunidhi Chauhan

Along with making his debut as an actor Aditya Narayan also tries his hand at composing. The title song of the movie is rock based. The song is written and also sung well. Aditya’s voice is good. He is also joined by Sunidhi Chauhan. The beats and instrumentals maintain the tempo throughout the song.


Verdict:

Being a horror film, the movie does not allow for great experiments with the music. However one would expect at least one or two songs like in Raaz that were mesmerizing. Although Shaapit may not meet the expectations, due credit has to be given to newcomer Aditya. He has performed well with singing and composing. The songs are average. Both Aditya and Chirantan Bhatt have good scope for improvement.
