Trademark of ARR written all over it… Any movie by mani Ratnam has expectations.. with ARR as the music director the expectations are high… and like all ARR-MR combinations this one’s a run-away hit too..
But yes like all ARR albums except maybe JTYJN the music takes time to grow on you… but once it does… like all his tunes.. they stick to you like glue 😀
Album gets an overall 4/5.. why.. cos songs are less 😛
Wen its ARR we want more.. we wanntt more… 😀
Beera and Ranjha ranjha rules with behne de following 🙂
If you haven’t yet got the album… what on earth are you waiting for… Christmas…?? 🙄
CERTIFIED MUST BUY 😀
Okkkeee…. Now for the detailed review 🙂
Beera – Vijay Prakash, Mustafa Kutoane, Keerthi Sagathia~~Foot tapping music, a song that’s completely dedicated to the raavan, his description, nature etc.. Catchy music though in one place it reminded me of “dholi taro dholbaaje” from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.. But this one song is surely very very addictive..you end up humming beera beera even after the song is over 🙂 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Behne de – Karthik, Mohamad Irfan ~~one of the lovely melodious numbers I this album. Signature ARR style music. Sudden increase/decrease in pace and pitch… One of those perfect songs for a loong drive espeiceially on a rainy evening 🙂 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Thok di khilli – Sukhvinder Singh, Am’nico – the way it started reminded me of badal from yuva.. but then all said n done this song has its own charm. Sukhwinder in his typical style. Nice song.. In some places reminded me of Ye jo des hai tera from Swades.. but then loved it 🙂 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE
Ranjha Ranjha – Rekha bhardwaj, Javed Ali, Anuradha Sriram – the immediate start reminded me of Mayya Mayya from Guru..slowly it gathered pace into western music.. but when the song starts you know you have a winner.. the only duet in the album.. Javed Ali at his usual self.. but Rekha bhardwaj steals the show completely…Her voice is a complete delight to hear.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN..
Kheli re khili re – reena bhardwaj~~ it’s a romantic track busat sorry to say that don’t impress me much…Maybe I need a coupla rounds more of listening to this one.. its not bad.. but not too impressive to me atleast.. so its jus CERTIFIED LISTENABLE..
Kata kata – Ila Arun, Sapna Awasthi Kunal Ganjawala ~~ this is like the theme song and the most advertised in the trailer… Awesome music.. the folksy effect very apt only in some places reminded me of Lagaan in some places… but this is definitely not a bad number J not very catchy not sumthin that you can get addicted to.. but its definitely a good one.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE
Overall, verdict is CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN indeed.. only I wish there was a tad more variety.. the whole album has the folklore feel to it.. I agree with a movie like Raavan wat more can you expect but haven’t ARR and MR known to create magic…??? Not that the magic is missing.. but somehow I feel there was room for more improvement.. if ARR cud have definitely given a tad more diversity in the tunes and songs 🙂
But nonetheless ARR IS ARR no one can beat him 😛
Looking forward to more music from him 😀
