Kisaan (2009)


About this album

After pandering to and pampering Punjabi and Pop trends with the over-familiar Punjabi munde sung by seven singers, Daboo Malik shows his true mettle in the soothing '90s-feel of Humko kehna hai (Shaan-Shreya). Shaan and Shreya (especially the former - good for him) seem to be the pair of choice for mellifluous duets nowadays. The six-singer Jhoomo re jhoomo is the catchiest track on the album with a very '50s-'60s feel merged with contemporary grooves. The L-P-esque Neeche saari duniya (Roopkumar Rathod-Harshdeep) with good lyrics by Salim Bijnori is also worth many listens. Toshi's Waqt ki dhoop (Toshi) has Panchhi Jalonvi writing decent verse. In a melange of music that sounds so similar to pop and assorted (con)fusion and foreign fare, this album is a welcome whiff of mitti ki khushboo without sounding dated. Daboo Malik and programmer-arranger Amal Malik (whose work stands out) may take a bow.
