Siddhant Bhosle is a lyricist, songwriter, guitarist, drummer, singer and voiceover artist based out of Mumbai. Prior to moving to Mumbai, Siddhant Bhonsle spent some time in Los Angeles as well. His collaboration with numerous artists and songwriters over there, helped him develop his own style which is a fabulous blend of Indian and international influences. He has won many singing competitions and sung for movies like ”Panga Gang”, ”Gharkul”, ”Bal Ganesh” and ”Bikers Adda”. Siddhant Bhosle has shared the stage with legends like Asha Bhosle, Laxmikant Pyarelal, Kalyanji Anandji, and Viju Shah to name a few.
He has been performing at several national and international concerts since 1999 and has also been featured on some of India’s biggest channels such as Zee classic and NDTV. He has also worked as a voice over artist for Disney Channel series like ”Phineas and Ferb”.
Siddhant Bhosle also happens to be the son of famous playback singer and voice artist Sudesh Bhonsle. Sudesh Bhosle rose to prominence through his uncanny ability to mimic the voice and mannerisms of Amitabh Bacchan (and any other prominent Bollywood stars). Because of his father’s association with Amitabh Bacchan, Siddhant Bhosle was ecstatic when Big B himself shared his first single “Din Aur Raatein” earlier this year on Twitter. Now, he is back with his next single written during the lockdown period. The song “Fida” is what we will be reviewing here.
The song has a brief, ambient intro before Siddhant Bhonsle’s rich and warm voice kicks in. he drives the song’s melody with the help of some soft instrumental accompaniment before a very prominent beat kicks in. It’s a surprisingly strong and head bobbing beat in a song with such delicately woven lyrics. Perhaps it’s the fusion of contrasting elements that gives the track its unique flavour.
Siddhant Bhonsle’s vocal melody and delivery makes this an ideal song to sing to your lover while you are out on a walk while the amazing beat makes this an ideal song to dance with your lover to. The vocal melody is extremely tuneful and memorable. Siddhant’s words are something we can imagine people singing in the future. As discussed before, the beat is quite strong and infectious, builds up very well to the chorus. “Fida” is a distinctive and original song which has been performed and produced masterfully.
It’s not groundbreaking or avant garde by any stretch of the imagination, but it’s definitely very good.
Verdict: Strong second single, not a sophomore slump at all.
