WELCOME TO SAJJANPUR
By Aakash Gandhi
Reviewer’s Rating: 7.5/10
I was simply licking my chops upon reading that Mohit Chauhan and Madhushree were heading the duet for Ek Meetha Marz De Ne. I was anything but disappointed! Upon the opening notes you know that this is going down as one of 2008’s best. Mohit Chauhan once again steals our heart in this extremely romantic ballad, written poignantly by Swanand Kirkire. Arrangements are as soft and soul-stirring as can be. We have a romantic background highlighted by pure acoustic riffs, mingled within the gorgeous bass line. Other instrumental highlights that flourish are piano and flute. Madhushree, as always, lends the most gentlest of touch in her supportive rendition. Both vocal textures share such great chemistry, only recently matched by perhaps the Sonu Nigam-Shreya Ghoshal duo.
