Times Music's exclusive release Tera khayal is a beautiful contemporary ghazal. It is sung by Kaushiki Chakraborty, composed by Deepak Pandit and written by Manoj Muntashir. The song is a love ballad and it will become a favourite very soon. The beautiful words by Manoj Muntashir are evocative and draw pictures that are soft, gentle and pastel-coloured.
The music video is 6 minutes long and features Kaushiki singing Tere khayal. But what attracts attention most in the song are the musical instruments used - it begins with the harp and manjira and then brings in the peaceful strains of the violin. This one is a new age ghazal that is melodious, just right for a pleasant evening over a cup of tea.
Kaushiki Chakraborty hails from a well-renowned musical family in Kolkata. She is known for her repertoire of khayals and thumris. Deepak Pandit is an ace violinist and composer and has worked on Humnasheen, sung by Shreya Ghoshal. This is definitely another gem from Deepak’s magical musical box.
