Radio - Music Review
The composer strikes back. Himesh Reshammiya is phenomenal in creating nine gems for his film Radio. All nine original terrific tracks give you enough reason to listen to this movie’s album that has Himesh, the composer, the crooner back in full form. The movie’s star cast includes Shenaz Treasurywala, Sonal Sehgal and Zakir Hussain.

With these smashing hits Himesh has also silenced his critics. The album thumps off with the very first number, Mann Ka Radio. Singer Himesh and composer Himesh are in perfect rhythm for this hit chartbuster song. The number has gained tremendous popularity thanks to its tune and catchy lyrics. The remix version is just about okay.

Based on Radio, the album has another track Zindagi Jaise Ek Radio - a bhangra number soaked in folk flavor. The USP of this song is Himesh’s unusual style of singing with passion and aplomb. The same rhythm continues for the remix number.

A Himesh album sounds incomplete without a love ballad, and thus comes Jaaneman featuring a heartfelt rendition by Himesh and Shreya Ghosal. PS: If you are not a fan of Himesh, you will become one.

Rekha Bhardwaj gets to sing Piya Jaise Ladoo Motichur Wale, a slow romantic number with a folksy flavour. And you start enjoying the track when it breaks with the Shehnai tune. This semi-classical song akin to thumri is a rare track to come from any Bollywood flick. The remix version is in pacy mode.

Melancholic strain visits the album with the number Koi Na Koi Chahe. One hearing and the song connects with you. Shreya and Himesh, thumbs up!

I am sure you will not get bored of this duo, as Shreya and Himesh again team up for Teri Meri Dosti Ka Asmaan. The song’s simple tune and very touchy lyrics makes it a must-hear.

A song for son-in-law, Damadji Angana Hai Padhare is not simply a situational track with Rajasthani folk music. In the voice of Kailash Kher, it is a song you will like to listen again and again. After listening to three diverse folk numbers in the album, we know Himesh understands the nerve of Indian folk music.

Shaam Ho Chali Hai, and we get back to our homes, tired and exhausted. So, this is the slumber number you can tune in while driving back to your abode. The song is soothing.

One might face difficulty to understand the lyrics of this track at first attempt. Rafa Dafa Kiya Nahi Nahin Jaaye is a track about moving on in life. However, this song impresses you with its percussions as it starts with congo instrumentals. Himesh is again as good as a singer gets, minus the nasal twang.

Along with Subrat Sen (lyricist) Himesh has created an album with some marvelous melodies. Hate him or love him, he is there to re-invent himself and Bollywood music. Undoubtedly, he is different in ‘Radio’ and making the music buffs crazy with Mann Ka Radio.

The album is a splendid euphony of Himesh’s creations. A heartiest welcome!
