One isn't too sure of what to expect from the soundtrack of Angry Indian Goddesses. Since the film's title lends an offbeat appeal, one waits to hear what is really in the offering from four songs that are in the album. As expected, multiple composers, lyricists and singers come together for the music here.
It is a surprisingly upbeat start for the album with newcomer Ashish Prabhu Ajgaonkoar spinning a fun tune 'Dil Dola Re'. With enticing-n-naughty lyrics by Dr. Swapnil Salkar that immediately lend the song an 'item number' classification, it makes you wonder how this one would fit into Angry Indian Goddesses, hence immediately turning around the perception attached to the film. Pratichee Mohapatra is roped in as a singer for this well paced number that also appears in a 'remix version'.
It's the sound of the guitar, courtesy the music band The Local Train, which kick-starts the proceedings for 'Aaoge Tum Kabhi'. Written and sung by Raman Negi, this one is in the Pakistani pop mode and while there isn't anything about the song to put you off, there isn't much novelty on display. At maximum, the song turns out to be a heard-before musical piece that ends up losing pace in the middle of the session itself.
The song that actually holds your attention from the word 'Go' is Anushka Manchanda's 'Zindagi'. An all-around show for Anushka where she composes, writes as well as sing this one, it is a beautiful piece that makes you hear it with good attention. A song about life and the unpredictability attached to it, when it comes to joys and sorrows, this one is an almost unplugged version with just the sound of a guitar in the background.
An all-around show by Kary Arora concludes the album as the female musician/DJ takes care of composition, writing as well as the singing part. Pretty much in continuation of 'Zindagi' when it comes to the theme, sound, situation, stage and setting, 'Tinko Ke Sahare' too has singing taking precedence over the musical instruments. That said, one just wonders if a little more polishing in the overall presentation would have helped this one more.
There wasn't much that was expected from the score of Angry Indian Goddesses. However, the presence of a couple of decent numbers helps to some extent at the least.
