World Music Day 2021: From Broken but Beautiful 3 to Bandish Bandits, OTT shows that have the best soundtrack

To honour musicians and singers for the gift of music, World Music Day is celebrated on June 21 every year. Also known as Fête de la Musique, it is a day wherein music is celebrated. Soundtracks of popular movies get all the love and adulation but original soundtracks from digital shows rarely get much appreciation. Since the year 2020 and now 2021 is about the OTT space, we look at some of the best music albums in the OTT space.

Broken But Beautiful - AltBalaji

Broken But Beautiful's first two seasons were especially known for their musical tracks. Whether it was Ye Kya Hua or Teri Hogaiyaan, both the tracks struck a chord with the audience. And with the third season, the makers made sure the album is still prestigious. This season, the makers had roped in giants from the music world namely Vishal Mishra, Amaal Mallik, Akhil Sachdeva, and Sandeep Patil (Sandman) to create soulful compositions like 'Tere Naal, 'Mere Liye', 'Hua Javaan', Teri Hogaiyaan’ and 'Kya Kiya Hai Tune' with some impactful lyrics which trended across various social media platforms and chartbuster lists. 

Bandish Bandits – Amazon Prime Video

The Amazon Prime Video's Bandish Bandits was a romantic drama that explored the debate of music being a discipline versus a means of liberation. Thus, it was paramount for the show to have an excellent album. And it did so. The music of the show was composed by Shankar Ehsaan Loy. The 11-song soundtrack album features Divyanshu Malhotra, Tanishk S Nabar, Sameer Samant, and consists of traditional verses. The show's magnificent east-meets-west soundtrack is a solid piece of work.

Sacred Games – Netflix

Sacred Games was one of the first Indian digital series that became a rage in the country. It won't be wrong to say that the show was a trendsetter of sorts in many ways. However, not many appreciate Sacred Games' soundtrack, which to date is an absolute earworm. Given the mammoth success of the show, its soundtrack not given its due yet is criminal. Tabahi, Dhuan Dhuan, Labbon Se Chu Kar, are one of our favourites. 

Scam 1992 – Sony LIV 

Do we even need to talk about the craze, Scam 1192's theme song created this year? Everywhere we go, we still hear it. However, it's not just the opening track from the show that is outstanding. Other tracks from the show, Mat Kar Maya Ka Ahankar, and Do Din Ki Zindagi are underrated pieces that deserve much-needed applause. Based on Harshad Mehta's story, Scam 1992 is a visual treat and a delight for music enthusiasts.

Kehne ko Humsafar Hai - Alt Balaji

Starring Ronit Roy, Mona Singh, and Gurdeep Kohli in prominent roles, Kehne Ko Humsafar was a huge success. The show spanned for three seasons, and in all the 3 editions, the series had some mesmerizing original tracks. Tum Ho Paas, by Amruta Fadnavis, has been one of the audience's favorites. Season 2 also marked the debut of actor Mona Singh as a singer with the song Teriyan Gallan.
