The 90s were a unique time and is memorable for all of us. In keeping with the vibe of their film, the makers of Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari launched the music of the film. The breezy numbers are a blend of retro and modern melodies and reflective of the mood of the film.
Produced by Zee Studios, the Abhishek Sharma movie is headlined by Manoj Bajpayee, Diljit Dosanjh, and Fatima Sana Shaikh. The film’s highlight so far has been the scintillating number Basanti but the album comprises 7 unique tracks namely- Waareya, Ladki Dramebaaz Hai, Suraj Pe Mangal Bhari Title Track, Bad Boys, and Dauda Dauda. There is a different version of Waareya as well available in the jukebox that releases on Zee Music. The album is composed by Javed-Mohsin along with Kingshuk Chakravarty.
The standout composition which is turning out to be the hook number is Waareya composed by Javed – Mohsin and sung by them along with Vibhor Parashar and Palak Muchhal and written by Kunaal Vermaa. The song is a celebration of old school romance before the advent of mobiles and dating apps. In current times, dating in the internet age has a transient feel to it but Waareya is an ode to old school love. With a sweet melody at its heart, the song is the one that’s closest to the makers. The video has a lot of old-time quirks like pagers and phone booth romancing with Diljit wooing Fatima in an adorable filmy fashion!
