Haraamkhor is a Bollywood romantic film, starring Shweta Tripathi and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles. The film is directed by Shlok Sharma and produced by Guneet Monga, Anurag Kashyap, Achin Jain Feroze Alameer. The film was premiered in the 15th Annual New York Indian Film Festival (NYIFF) and also the Indian Film Festival of Los Angeles (IFFLA). Nawazuddin also won the Best Actor award for this film at the NYIFF. The film received many accolades at the screenings and finally released in theatres around India on 13th January, 2017. The film, which I expected would have no songs as such, has one song, by the latest talent Jasleen Kaur Royal. The song was actually supposed to be her debut, as she was signed for this film before ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ and ‘Shivaay’, and so I’m guessing he song will be better than all her already released songs. But let’s see! 😀

♪ Kidre Jaawan

Singer ~ Jasleen Kaur Royal, Music by ~ Jasleen Kaur Royal, Lyrics by ~ Aditya Sharma

“Kidre jaawan, labban chhawan,
Takdi raawan, na den salaahwan!”

And the only thought in mind after hearing this song was, “What a pleasant surprise!” The song is a nice and innocently composed song, quite similar to Jasleen’s other songs, but different in some inexpressible way. The other songs (And here I talk specifically of ‘Kho Gaye Hum Kahan’ from ‘Baar Baar Dekho’ and ‘Raatein’ from ‘Shivaay’, and not the upbeat number ‘Nachde Ne Saare’ from ‘Baar Baar Dekho’) were quiet and soft. In those songs, the arrangements were quite minimal and the interludes were quiet. (And if they weren’t in ‘Raatein’ please excuse me because I barely heard the song after reviewing it — it horrified me). This one too, has minimal arrangements in the initial stages, but later on Jasleen very cleverly adds on more and more instruments as the song progresses. First, there is nothing but an acoustic guitar complementing her voice (and I must say, the voice suits perfectly for this song.. unlike ‘Love You Zindagi’ from ‘Dear Zindagi’ that sounded better in Alia’s voice, to me personally). Later on she adds digital drum-like beats that give the beats very professionally. However, she doesn’t cut off the guitars either, and the combination sounds blissful. In the interludes, she plays a very beautiful tune on those same guitars. And the last surprise is when, before the last repetition of the hookline, she adds a wonderful rock guitar portion! The composition itself is very innocent — the mukhda making for a very nice start, while the antaras are beautiful — the tune of the second one being my personal favourite. And that hookline just makes you feel on top of the world. It’s too cute! Of course, there are similarities to the two songs I mentioned, but that can’t really be criticised as this was her first song. Aditya Sharma’s lyrics really are well-written. They are full of innocence and a rural folk feel. However, i wonder why they are Punjabi if the film is set in Gujarat… A nice and innocent song from Jasleen!
