In The Mood For Love

With Yaariyan, director Divya Khosla Kumar proved she has an ear for music, and now, after two years, she’s back with her second directorial venture, Sanam Re. While the songs of Yaariyan Sunny sunny and ABCD Yaariyan – are still among the most-preferred dance tracks on the party circuit, Sanam Re offers more lingering romantic melodies. Set to release in February, the month of love, the director has got the music team of Aashiqui 2 – Arijit Singh, Mithoon and Jeet Gannguli – to create similar magic. This time around, young and promising composer Amaal Mallik has joined the team, to offer the eight-track album.

The title track received a one-of-its kind launch, with the release taking place at the Live Symphony Orchestra of Arijit Singh. The song instantly clicks with listeners, given the hauntingly pleasing orchestration composed by Mithoon. Filled with the composer’s trademark tunes of racy guitar and percussion, the neatly-placed beats fit the compelling vocals of Arijit Singh, who is once again at his best. The additional vocals of Anirudh Bhola add an extra layer, lending the track an edgy feel.

While the title of the track Gazab ka hai yeh din might seem like a revised version of the Aamir Khan-Juhi Chawla hit song from Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, it barely resembles the old track. Mallik has kept the composition simple, mainly laced with playful guitar tunes, further enhancing the pleasant flavour of the track. Mallik has collaborated with Arijit Singh on the track and has received the impeccable backing of lighthearted lyrics written by Manoj Muntashir.

Mallik teams up with his brother Armaan Malik and Palak Muchhal for the romantic track Hua hai aaj pehli baar. The musical arrangement replicates the ‘80s music style of Nadeem-Shravan’s orchestration. The lyrics by Manoj Yadav are simple and match the unpretentious feel of the track.

This feel-good romantic album gets a lift with the dance track Humne pee rakhi hai, which seems like a poor imitation of Yo! Yo! Honey Singh’s trademark tracks. The music, composed by Epic Bhangra, has a heavy dose of basic club and dance tunes, further laced with trivial lyrics penned by Ikka and Kumar. Jaz Dhami, Neha Kakkar and Ikka have tried to their best to bring a party feel to this track.

The album returns to its romantic mood with Mallik’s Kya tujhe ab ye dil bataye. The music approach here is a tad different from his previous two tracks. Heavy on orchestration, the tempo is dynamic and escalates at the chorus. The composer has maintained a balance between the music and the vocals of Falak Shabbir, who has matched the musical variations.

Mithoon is then back with Ankit Tiwari for yet another emotional track, Tere liye. While the Sanam Re track stays with listeners, this situational number gets droning after a point.

Remember the very popular title track of the 2001 musical Tum Bin? Well, Jeet Gannguli has given his own touch in the track Tum bin. Though the musical arrangements as well as the lyrics penned by Rashmi Virag are quite different from the original, the singing, especially the opening alaap by Shreya Ghoshal, gives one a feeling of déjà vu.

Gannguli concludes the album with Shaan belting out a cheerful track, Chhote chhote tamashe. With the narrative style of singing, the track has a retro-style composition, clubbed with blissful lyrics contributed by Muntashir.

Verdict: Superb!!!
