Delhi 6 – Music Review

February 13, 2009

Late, but better late than never. In the background of Slumdog millionaire, probably this movie didn’t receive the attention it deserved. Total rating 4.5/5 The songs are typical of most of ARR’s compositions, and do not catch your attention in a moment. But like a good wine, ARR is not gulped, but taken in by all senses, step by step. See, Smell, Swirl, Sip and relax…

Pre script : I am not very used to music reviews, but here goes.

Arziyan – Kailash Kher, Jaaved Ali

Very typical. Reminiscient of Khwaja mere Khwaja by the context of the lyrics. Very devotional and Kailash Kher Jaaved Ali combo sounds perfect. Kailash Kher probably as a singer is getting stereotyped for such songs, but we are not complaining. The voice is power packed. ๐Ÿ™‚

Aartiย  (Tumre Bhavan mein) – Rekha Bharadwaj et al

The other devotional song. This is not really captivating atleast for my ears. Seemed to be the Hindu counterpart to the Muslim devotional and just that. Could have been something like “O Paalan Haare” from Lagaan, but did not meet the mark.

Bhor Bhaye – Shreya Goshal, Ustaad Bade Gulam Ali Khan

Awesome. But am not too sure if it is ARR composition, but if you can appreciate Hindustani Music, you know this stands out. If else, no time like now and no opportunity like this to start.

Delhi 6 – Blaaze, Benny Dayal et al

One of the more popular ones. This title song has awesome catchiness to it. Delhiites and Non Delhiites might have began humming already. Lovely lyrics too.

Dil Gira Dafatan – Ash King, Chinmayee

What a voice? I first heard it and felt someone was patting me to sleep.ย  One of the two melodies. Apparently Just-fallen-in-love song. The minute sounds make it more interesting. Chinmayee’s voice amazingly supports the song, for want of better words.

Genda Phool – Rekha Bharadwaj et al

Rural UP Folk song. Teasing the bride kinds. I liked this song, but I have been getting maximum conflicting reviews for this song. More than the plain folk part, what impressed me was the mixing. Lyrics are hilarious too.

Hey Kaala Bhandar – Kartik, Naresh Iyer

It is Kartik and it is Naresh Iyer! What do you expect? ABSOLUTELY ROCKING! Rap lyrics areย  great. I am waiting to know how it fits in the movie. Interesting song. The way the song starts with “been” music of snake charmer is captivating.

Noor – Amitabh Bachchan

This is sher recital by AB, who is apparently grandpa to the junior AB in this movie. ๐Ÿ™‚ What can I say? AB senior’s voice is born to recite sher and we are to remain captivated.

Masakali – Mohit Chouhan

Apart from being the absolutely stunning Sunidhi Chauhan’s brother, this will be Mohit Chouhan’s identity for years to come. Video being the first one to release, the song has overshadowed the other equally brilliant songs. Having said that, this song is no less. Mohit sings this with the joy that shows in the video and that catches to us.

Rehna Tu- A R Rahman

His Her Master’s Voice.ย  and she remains captivated. Song’s lyrics are top class. The line which says if we have to join hands and walk, both cannot be right hands, is supreme. The song is about asking someone to remain the same way without any change.ย  Melody # 2 of the album. The music in between lyrics is soothing.

My only regret is that I am not so technically literate to appreciate and explain the songs better.
