Didn't see a thread for the music of this film. I think it deserves one. As I am listening now to the songs, I can recognise it from ringtones that my Marathi colleagues have been using for the last few months. What's refreshing is Ajay-Atul don't just derive from vintage IR. They have also kept up with the maestro's own journey through the 90s and noughties. I swear when the opening lines of the mukda of Sairat Zaala Ji came on, I, being fairly proficient in Marathi, could not make out Marathi words. I heard only the Tamil words that maybe Vaali, Vairamuthu or Panju Arunachalam would have written for an Ilayaraja song. What's amazing is they have given an IR-ish colour even to very Marathi rural based songs. Even Zingaat seems to evoke IR's own rural songs though it is total Marathi. I think Ajay-Atul along with Guitar Prasanna are among the biggest fanboys of IR in the music industry today. They must love his music a lot to have woven it so beautifully into Marathi music. In a way, they are expanding his own legacy into new areas. Fusion of IR rural with rural based music of other regions, that would be an interesting idea.
