Posted by Kanthimathi M0V!(- B(-(- on October 19, 2012
Music by: A R Rahman
Singers: Rabbi Shergill, Mohit Chauhan, Shreya Ghoshal, Raghav Mathur, Shilpa Rao, Harshdeep Kaur, Neeti Mohan, Rap: Sofia Ashraf, Javed Ali, Shakthisree Gopalan, Shah Rukh Khan
Record: YRF Music
Atlast the most expected Music of the year has come out. It is so special, since the Music and Maestro, the Rhythm Malik has joined the hands of King of Romance Yash Chopra in the Lyrics penned by Gulzar.
The album contains 9 tracks with Reprise version of Saans and a Love Rhythm and a poet by Adithya Chopra.
The album starts with Chaala, voiced by Rabbi Shergill. It is nothing but an introduction of “Bollywood of Baadshah”. The song goes with a good tempo with Rock format, wonder manual drums by Ranjit Barrot. The track has a good variation with manual rhythm and guitars.
The second track Saans voiced by Sherya Ghosal and Moit Chauhan is beautiful romantic melody. Melody is not new to AR Rehman and the same goes the singers.
The third track is a real highlight with Good rhythm and Romance mood “Ishq Saana”, voiced by Rahul Mathur, new comer and female lead by Shilpa Rao. The song has good variation in the beginning and middle. However the voice of Rahul loses the depth when it is accompanied with music. The song is nothing but a master piece of Rehman.
The fourth song “Heer”, sung by Harshdeep Kaur has good melody. The songs show good melancholy about separation between lovers. Wonderful use of manual rhythm which is simple and good.
Fifth track of the album is a peppy number Jiya Re sung by Neeti Mohan, an introduction of the female lead in the movie. The rise of voice of Jiya Re takes you to the next level. Wonder use of techno by sound master.
Sixth song of the album which is a title song Jab Tak Hai jaan sunf by Javed Ali and Sakthisree Gopalan, starts with a good western note suddenly shifts to sufi which is a typical work of A R Rehman. Sakthisree support voiced has increased the taste of the song. The new comer has good depth in his voice.
Seventh track is the reprise version of the romantic melody Saans sung by Sherya Ghosal.
The eight track Ishq Dance which is completely instrumental is fast in number. Though Yashji goes with most of dholak and table, the track is a typical work of the Rhythm Malik. Though we had seen instrumental work with little western pattern in Dil To Pagal Hai by Uttam Singh. The entire tracks with good fast and ends with a good note.
The last track is a poem by Adithya Chopra voiced by Sharukh Khan with good music.
Overall the album has a good refreshing music, though it may not be a game changer for AR Rehman fans but it has got a place in heart to keep it. The entire album contains good variety, nice blend of music. Definitely the track is going to top in the coming weeks.
K7’s Cut – ***1/2
