The OST for Punjabi movie Sirphire released on 13th July 2012 featuring Preet Harpal, Monica Bedi, Priyanshu Chatterjee (Tum Bin fame), Gurleen Chopra, Roshan Prince, Karamjeet Anmol on Speed Records in India. I am not able to find any release details in the UK, other than itunes.
Roshan Prince sings throughout the movie and has created some real catchy numbers. The album also features the vocals of Master Saleem, Preet Harpal and Lehmber Hussainpuri all directed by Jatinder Shah.
Now I have listened to the songs on youtube via speed records official channel a few times now, and have enjoyed it to the point I have ordered the album from India as I cannot find it on CD here in the UK.
Look / Lak has Roshan Prince back to his usual style of telling stories with his vocals and a video that follows the song properly.
Bhuchul brings Lehmber’s vocals in to the mix with an upbeat tune, which bears a very close resemblance to the hit song “Bishani” also sung by Lehmber.
They even provide a behind the scenes look:-
The title track Sirphire is probably my least favourite track on the album, in fact I don’t like it simply because there is nothing to the track.
Patang Wali Dor sees Master Saleem colaborate with Sunidhi Chauhan, with Monica Bedi featuring in the video in what I can only describe as a modern Sari! The collaboration between Saleem and Chauhan works really well. They compliment each other.
Gaani brings Preet Harpal into the mix with some strong vocals, and lyrics, with a 70’s styled video.
The OST even gets some Chamkila action from Roshan Prince. A scene in the car, with the passenger sitting the wrong way round. That aside this tune is excellent. Between this and Look / Lak it is tough to pick my favourite.
So there we have 6 tracks (well 5 proper tracks) which all hold their own. A great line up of vocalists and some powerful lyrics. Speed Records have done a fantastic job promoting this in India. Their youtube channel has all the songs, along with behind the scenes, launch videos etc. My only question is why have we not heard more about this in the UK?
The album is available on itunes.
