Blue - Music Review

Rhythmic blues

An action flick with hot men and sexy ladies, Blue is not only about Akshay Kumar or Katrina Kaif, but also about A R Rahman. So, for you all Rahmaniacs, the maestro is back with the music album of ‘Blue’.

Billed as India’s first underwater film, ‘Blue’ is one of the most expensive movies to come from Bollywood. High on style quotient and oomph, the movie required tangy, zippy tunes. So debutant director Anthony D’Souza wisely chose Rahman as the composer, the one who has almost stopped churning music for hard-core commercial movies. However, the onus for writing lyrics was on Abbas Tyrewala, Mayur Puri and Raqeeb Alam. So, what has Rahman for us in this collection?

‘Blue’ takes off with an Ooh la la, the Chiggy Wiggy song. Australian pop star Kylie Minogue makes a rocking debut in Bollywood by crooning with verve and style this western yet desi track along with Sonu Nigam and Suzzane. The sensuous number is already ruling the charts, thanks to Kylie’s sexy moves and Akshay’s bhangra.

Aaj dil gustakh hai is good to hear with its very catchy tune but reminds of another hit number O Bhanware from the film Daud. Coincidentally, that song also featured Sanjay Dutt. Anyway, Shreya Ghosal surprises you with her sensuous vocals while Sukhwinder Singh is at his usual best.

Once Rahman said he admires Pritam among the new-age composers. Yaar Mila Tha is the track where Rahman meets Pritam but in spite of its catchy rhythm the song falls flat.

High on metal, Blue theme is a remarkable track. The experimenting Rahman also tries to incorporate the lounge effect in the song. The energetic team of Blaze, Raqueeb Alam, Sonu Kakkar and Jaspreet Singh get to sing this terrific track. Just apt for the theme song of a film.

Another high velocity track, Fiqrana fails to impress you with its tune. However, the spunk in the song is because of its versatile singers Vijay Prakash and Shreya.

Rahman uses symphony to start the song Bhula Tujhe and gets his favourite Rashid Ali to sing this track. ‘Bhula Tujhe’ will take time to grow, as the melody lingers as well as haunts.

A slow romantic number, Rehnuma sounds very similar to ‘Yuva’ track, Anjana Anjani. Again, credit goes to singers for the way they have rendered the song; Shreya and Sonu are superb with their quivery intonations.

May be Rahman did not give his 100 percent to the music score of ‘Blue’ In the collection of seven, only Chiggy Wiggy and Blue Theme track wins you over. The other compositions are not exactly ear sores, but may take time to catch your fancy.

Rating : 6/10
