Zindagi na Milegi Dobara: Music Review

Kab tak ginen hum dhadkanein, dil jaise dhadke dhadakne do has that soul that is found in Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy-Farhan combos, that gives you the confidence to ‘do’ something, a Lakshya thing. Joi Barua sings for SEL in this one. Ik Junoon (Paint it Red) is a poppish one that goes to its limited highs in a way that it will be slowly, but highly addictive.

Khwabon ke Parindey has Alyssa singing a beautiful song in her sweet, eclectic voice, while Mohit supports her. Alyssa does a Caralisa in this one, almost going the Phir dekhiye style, though the song is slightly higher on notes compared to that one.

Senorita sung by Hrithik, Farhan, Abhay and Maria Del Mar Fernandez is gonna be the attraction of the album as the three actors seem to be doing good not only in singing but dancing as well. Lovely.

Shankar Mahadevan gives his first solo appearance in Der Lagi Lekin, Maine jeena seekh liya. I think the line says a lot about the song. Javed Akhtar’s positive lyrics have been sung by Shankar with all ease and in a way that the song appeals to you the very first time, to grow on you more, every time you listen to it. DO listen.

Loy, Dominique, Clinton Cerejo. You know what type the song is gonna be as soon as you read the names. A techno-techno Sooraj ki Baahon mein is nothing too new as far as arrangements are concerned, but the composition has got some simple-addictive-good beats and you learn four lines the first time you listen. You know what it means, don’t you? Hey Yeah!

In To Zinda ho tum. Farhan Akhtar renders his dad’s words as a poem with some music in the background, something that tends to inspire you, but though the words are good and well rendered, probably they are a bit too less. Could have been more, and thus better.

As for remixes, Ik Junoon remix is even more addictive than the actual song I guess, though Senorita Remix is not as interesting as the original.

Overall, ZNMD is something to celebrate, like you see in the movie. Do go for it. Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy are there again.

Suno Aisha…

If you think Amit Trivedi is all rock, think again. The Dev.D guy is into a full-fledged filmy mode this time and as you hear a peppy Suno Aisha, you can’t stop humming the words. If you haven’t heard the song, I can give you a rough idea of the song, say it’s somewhat like Jaane Kyun of Dostana, somewhat like Jab mila tu, somewhat like Kabhi Kabhi Aditi, and still unique.

If you still want to know more, listen to the song. 🙂

Here are the lyrics of the song.

Tum ho kamaal, tum bemisaal, tum lajawab ho aisha
Aisi haseen ho, jis ko choo lo usko haseen kar do
Tum sochti ho duniya mein koi bhi kyun kharaab ho aisha
Tum chahati ho tum koi rang har zindagi mein bhar do, bhar do

Nikli ho likhne kismat ki seekhi apni hi dhun mein tum aisha
Yeh shauk kya hai, yeh zid hai kaisi, itna bata do humko
Suljaane mein tum auron ki uljhane, hoti ho jo ghum aisha
Apni bhi koi uljhan ko door kar ke dikha do humko
Suno aisha, itna to tum bhi samjho
Aisha, tum chahe jitna chaho
Aisha, tum jitni koshish kar lo
Aisha, tum sa na hoga koi…

Shaam bhi koi – Aisha

And, as expected, Amit Trivedi does it. I was not even done with listening to Amit’s Udaan, and his Aisha is here. As per my rule, I decided to go for Amit’s self sung Shaam first, and the song just bowled me over. It’s a soft piece with Javed Akhtar’s matching lyrics. The song reminded me of Aamir and when I heard it the first time, there were times when I thought ‘here it goes into rock mode’, but the song never did. Soft, soulful, and Amit Trivedi’s typical. Well done by Neuman Pinto n Amit. Here are the lyrics of the song.

Road, Movie and Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge: Movie Review

It was a bit strange Friday as neither of the two movies I saw today had a strong storyline even though both had strong actors. While Atithi Tum Kab Jaoge was expected to be so, Road, movie was a not-so-pleasant surprise as time and truck kept moving but not the story. Here is my review, or reviews as you may call it, of the two movies, in the order I saw them. So Atithi comes first.
