I have classified this review in a category ‘Desserts’. This just means ‘Singles’, as in songs that aren’t from any movie or are from a movie but release later, or the movie itself only has one song. In this case, ‘Mardaani’ has only one song.

Mardaani is an upcoming Bollywood woman-centric crime drama directed by Pradeep Sarkar, produced by Aditya Chopra, and starring Rani Mukerji in the lead role. Rani will be seen as a rough and tough cop named Shivani Shivaji Roy in the film. Pradeep Sarkar films usually have many songs, but this one only has a single song composed by Salim-Sulaiman with which I have no problems, because I personally appreciate Salim-Sulaiman’s hard work. After their two songs in ‘Kaanchi’ earlier this year, they get a song in this film, so let’s see whether they showcase their talent in the song!
Mardaani Anthem:- Singers ~ Sunidhi Chauhan & Vijay Prakash, Music by ~ Salim-Sulaiman, Lyrics by ~ Kausar Munir
The song starts with a conch shell sound followed by the Durga Devi shloka ‘yaa Devi sarva bhuteshu…’ Vijay Prakash gets to sing these lines, and then Sunidhi makes her power-packed entry into the song. She enters on very low notes, and makes her way up the ladder of notes as she progresses through the song. She sounds very energetic, and I don’t think anyone else could have performed as well as her. She has sung many songs for Rani in the past, and though their voices are different from each other, the voice suits very well on Rani Mukerji. YRF’s favourite (at some particular time in the past) Salim-Sulaiman have churned out a great track, which has the correct amount amount of energy and suits perfectly with the theme of the movie. The tune is dynamic, the arrangements powerful, everything seems perfect! The confidence of the lady officer which Rani is playing, is very efficiently conveyed through the zealous music and empowering lyrics by Kausar Munir. Vijay keeps entering with the shloka, but no doubt the stars here are Salim-Sulaiman. They have finally got the opportunity to compose for a relatively large movie, and they have used the opportunity very, very well! Not a single stone have they left unturned. This will surely work as their grand comeback to Bollywood! The song will ensure that they get even more albums in the future. When Salim-Sulaiman and YRF combine, it always results in a dhamaakedaar result. A must-listen song! It’s a ‘chhota packet bada dhamaaka!’ #5StarHotelSong!
