Helmed by Mahesh Manjrekar, ‘Antim: The Final Truth’s soundtrack is composed by Ravi Basrur and Hitesh Modak and comprises five tracks copyrighted to Zee Music Company. Vaibhav Joshi, Nitin Raikwar and Shabbir Ahmed have written the lyrics. The album covers every genre of music and has some very energetic dance numbers.
The album opens with “Vighnaharta” which was dropped by the makers before launching the trailer. The name itself tells us that it will be the next Ganesh Chaturthi favourite. It is an extremely energetic song sung by Ajay Gogavale and the music has been given by Hitesh Modak. The surprise element of this song is Varun Dhawan, who plays a cameo in the movie with this song. This dynamic 6:04 minute long track uses Indian traditional music instruments such as shenai and has used elephant tusks in the video. These elements give the song a festive vibe with vibrancy and symbolism. This is definitely the next festive hit song.
Written by Vaibhav Joshi, “Chingari” is an item number that talks too much about social media. Sunidhi’s voice couldn’t cover up the lyrics that were extremely cringy. Ajj khul jane de chori teri meri, Dalu insta pe mai story teri meri, Hain yeh trending hone ki bat (Let our secret come out today as I put up an insta story, it will be a trendy topic) is the opening line of the song. Although it was appreciated by the fans and the dance by Waluscha D’Souza was a huge hit. She tried to perform the Maharashtrian folk dance Lavani yet the dance lacked the most important feature i.e. expressions. The typical Maharashtrian beats in the song didn’t compliment the dance at all that had unnecessary sexualization of the dance form. Hitesh Modak did a good job with the music but the lyrics ruined it all.
“Koi Toh Aayega” is everything a song should be. The beats are electrifying and the voice and lyrics will make your adrenaline rush high up. It is composed and arranged by Ravi Basrur who has co-written the lyrics with Shabbir Ahmed. The use of guitars, strings and drums are extremely well blended in this song. The song suits a heroic Salman Khan entry.
“Hone Laga” has Jubin Nautiyal magic throughout. It’s a romantic track and the use of flute and violin made it obvious. The lyrics are written by Shabbir Ahmed. It is a new love anthem for sure. The music is composed by Ravi Basrur and is soulful and sets a romantic ambiance.
“Bhai Ka Birthday” is sung by Sajid Khan and penned by Nitin Raikwar. The song doesn’t imply Salman’s birthday and one should watch the extravagant party street dance video. The song is already a huge hit on social media and the audience has loved the typical Marathi vibe in the song. The music is composed by Hitesh Modak with peppy beats and a zing of live drums.
Amidst all the remakes the music album of ‘Antim: The Final Truth’ is a breeze of fresh air. Overall the album is a mixed bag of all genres and next year’s playlist will have some of these songs for sure.
