Film: 'Fashion'; Music Director: Salim-Suleiman; Lyricist: Irfan Siddique, Sandeep Nath; Singers: Salim Merchant, Neha Bhasin, Sukhwinder Singh, Shruti Pathak, Robert Bob Omulo, Satya Hinduja, Mohit Chauhan; Rating: ***1/2
Composers Salim-Suleiman have created great music for the film 'Fashion'. And the success or failure of Madhur Bhandarkar's movie at the box office wouldn't change the fate of the album, which, beyond doubt, is a commercial success.
The album starts with the interesting song 'Aashiyana', which is five-and-a-half minutes long. Salim and Suleiman have put together an engaging mix of sounds that are complimented by Salim's rendition and Irfan Siddique's lyrics.
Next is 'Fashion ka jalwa' that talks about the reality of the fashion world. Sandeep Nath's lyrics are meaningful. Sukhwinder Singh sings it well along with Bob Omulo and Satya Hinduja.
It's a pleasure to hear Mohit Chauhan's rendition in the romantic number 'Kuch khaas'. He teams up with Neha Bhasin of Viva fame to sing the lovely song. It may not top the charts, but is very soothing to listen to.
'Mar jawaan' is one of the best tracks of the album. It is already creating waves on the small screen. Salim takes over the vocals once again and this time Shruti Pathak gives him company. She adds something fresh and likeable to the number.
'Theme of fashion' is an instrumental piece. While it is not a great piece in terms of composition, it might suit the situation during the course of the movie.
It's very hard to find anything wrong with the album. Salim-Suleiman have done a wonderful job as composers and have brought out the essence of the movie in a remarkable way. Irfan has come out with great lyrics and every singer has given his or her best shot.
