Ismail Darbar is a name to be reckoned with, I mention this in the present tense as his caliber of work remains strong even after Devdas. If at any point in time, one goes back and looks at these compositions, you will realize the detailing involved in each of his songs. In Devdas particular he enriches the story to such an extent that one cannot simply ignore the songs, or even forget the meaningful layering behind them.
Pritamda’s third outing at Dharma Productions should make him feel really proud of his achievements, this was a mammoth task and would have been a really tough assignment for anyone in the music industry, especially looking at the current state of film music. Originality is hard to come by and here Pritam gives us new creations that are to be cherished for a very long time indeed.
