Expectations are always gargantuan from a Karan Johar directed film as they have always boasted of chartbusting melodious compositions, right from KUCH KUCH HOTA HAI to STUDENT OF THE YEAR. And AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL too promises that with Pritam-Amitabh at the helm of musical affairs.AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL WALLPAPERS
Coming to the first song on the playlist, one that has captivated the imagination of music buffs right from the launch of its teaser till date. Yes, the title song, 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil
'. The bewitching melody, the enchanting piano notes, especially in the prelude, followed by trumpets and violin and cello make up for some superb arrangements. With eclectic rendition by Arijit Singh and lyrics that are simply class apart, the song capture minds and hearts and is one of the finest love songs of not just the year, but will continue to rule for years to come, quite in the league of KKHT and DDLJ songs.
While quite a few are of the view that 'Bulleya
' has been inspired by Papa Roach's popular rock track, 'Last Resort', but Pritam has proved his versatility and his hold over rock music right from LIFE IN A METRO days, and there is no questioning his ingenuity. And it hardly matters when one is treated to an amazing rock anthem like this. In the sufi rock 'Bulleya
' Pritam bowls us over with a superb tune and amazing rock arrangements. Amit Mishra (now becoming a favourite with Pritam (after 'Manma Emotion Jaage
' and 'Sau Tarah Ke
'), does an excellent job and his vocals suit Ranbir to the tee and is part supported by Shipla Rao. Amitabh's lyrics too are superb and one of the highlights of the song of the year, thus far!
The emotionally surcharged wedding atmosphere gets even more dramatic with the melodiously haunting situational 'Channa Mereya
' sung with oozing emotions by Arijit. It's the fusion of western (electric and bass guitars) and Hindustani (shehnai, dholak, flute) that catch attention straight away.
Standing true to its spirit of celebrating break up, 'The Breakup Song
' is actually a club dance number that will surely be appreciated by the Gen X. However it does entertain and can bring a smile on the face of anyone, even those going through a traumatic heart break, all thanks to some very funny but superbly apt lyrics, lovely foot tapping desi rhythm and spirited rendition by Arijit, Jonita Gandhi and Naksh Aziz. Kudos to Badshah for some absolutely superb and in sync with the situation rap.
There is another song that has been added to the playlist(recently), 'Cutiepie
', composed by Pritam and a new look of the song featuring Ranbir Kapoor wearing a wedding dress, turban et al was released (a day or so back), and there are no details as such about it, except a promotional video. It's not clear whether the song would be included in the film.
Summing up, the audio of AE DIL HAI MUSHKIL is excellent.. All the songs have universal appeal. The nation is drooling under the inebriated effects of the title track and the youth already clean bowled by 'Bulleya
' and these two tracks are our favourites too. Pritam has surely come back with a big bang and provided Karan with the chartbusting music, a prerequisite of any successful love story. The superhit songs will surely prove to be the accelerator pad for the movie which releases this Friday.Music Review Rating Chart :-
