Song by Song: Jalte Hain (Sorry Bhai!)

Onir's movies might find viewers or not. They may be loved by critics or disappoint them. But whatever the case, music is something which is consistently good in his movies. Sorry Bhai is no exception, even though it's once again by a new composer, Gaurav Dayal.

The song Jalte hain comes in two versions and a remix. The two non-remixed versions are sung by Abhishek Nailwal and KK and both are absolutely superb.

Jalte hain is a slow song with constant beats providing light music for the song. The first version, sung by Abhishek Nailwal completely focuses on his voice and the guy has sung it really well. The mood of the song is sad but not mournful.

The second version, sung by KK, of course sounds more familiar from the very start as KK comes behind the microphone. And though both versions are good in their own place, KK version scores higher in first look. Though, KK version having slightly more instruments, chorus and all can make you turn to simpler first version in the long run.

But above all, Jalte hain is a good composition with a soothing touch to its music. Whichever version you listen to, you will find that soothing touch present there. So, if you are in search of some slow, soft, soothing, there are good chances you like Jalte hain. Otherwise too, just try it. A good composition is always a treat.
