A.R.Rahman simply ROCKS, in the Music of Aamir Khan’s next movie “Rang De Basanti” which hit the music stands yesterday. The Music is a real treat for someone who loves contemporary music. The album starts with a very slow number; this is just the silence before the oncoming musical storm. Then comes the Bhangra number, “Rang De Basanti” sung by Daler Mehndi. Unquestionably he is one of the best in singing a Bhangra. Then comes the catchy number of the album “Lose Control” sung by Naresh Iyer and Mohamed Aslam. This number would go very well with the generation next. The part of the song goes like this…
Lose Control, Lose Control,
I am a rebel
Talli ho kar girne se
Samjhi hamne gravity
Ishq ka practical kiya
Tab aayee clarity
Na Koi Padhnevala, na koi sikhnevala
Apni to paathshala, masti ki paathshala
To keep up with the current trend there is a remixed version of this track later in the album, with Blaaze joining the lead singers. Amidst all this, there is a soothing musical number by Lata Mangeshkar & A.R.Rahman.
Luka chuppi bahut huyi saamne aa ja naa
Kahan kahan dhoondha tujhe
Thak gayi hai ab teri maa
Aaja saanjh hui mujhe teri fikar
Dhundhla gayi dekh meri nazar aa ja na.
This is my most favorite one of this album. Amognst all the voices, we get to listen to Aamir Khan in more of a recital number. The album ends with some Goan style music. The one thing which stands out in the album is the string & voice arrangement. The fantastic guitar interludes throughout keeps the listener interested. This one would get into the collectibles of any contemporary music lover.
CAUTION & WARNING: - This is not an album for anyone who always felt A.R.Rahman music sounds the same always just because some random film critic wrote it that way.
