Musical Score: A beautiful background that takes you away with it
Songs of Qarib Qarib Singlle are very delight to hear and are relatable with the theme of the movie.
Vishal Mishra’s ‘Khatam Kahani’ with the amazing voice of the Nooran sisters makes a very beautiful rajasthani score that captivates the audience. The trip gets even more excited with Rochak Kohli’s composition of ‘Tu Chale Toh’ that was spiced up by Papon’s exquisite voice.
While the journey finds some rough patches, Atif Aslam’s score of ‘Jaane de’ manages to allure the audience with its silent tune and the glimpse of loneliness that consists of hope.
The adventure of love that took a different path has managed to enthrall the audience with its character and the story. The movie did not fancy any item song or too much of fashionable inputs and that keeps the movie well in the theme. There were no hiccups, no exaggerating moments but a constant sense of curiosity that made this movie even more delightful.
Eeshit Narain did an amazing job to keep cinematography at its best and the director Tanuja Chandra’s decision to have Irrfan Khan and Parvathy on board to lead the movie reaped the fruit.
With it’s flamboyant direction, scriptwriting and the acting, this movie is a must watch that will surely charm its way in your heart.
