The Devdas soundtrack is a rich treasure trove of Bollywood music. The movie is fantastic, and the music is a huge part of that fantasticness. The climax of the film, built around the song “Dola Re Dola”, is also the climax of the soundtrack. It won a boatload of awards, and deservedly so. It wins my award of “Favoritest Bollywood Song Evar!!!!”
The high pitches on the female vocals may take some getting used to for those new to the genre, but it’s a taste well worth acquiring. This is the best foot forward for Bollywood music, and I give the entire disc a 9 out of 10. “Dola Re Dola”, though, is superlative and the dance that goes with it is monumental.
