Album Review
-Mixed Package
By Usha Lakra

To compose music for a psychological thriller is no easy feat. A R Rahman, one of the best in the business, does it with relative ease in the music score of ‘Ghajini’, weaving Prasoon Joshi’s lyrics to hummable melodies in five songs, out of which three remain with you even after the album is over.

The movie, directed by A. R Murugadoss, is the remake of superhit Tamil film. It stars Aamir Khan, Asin and Jiah Khan. There is no title track in the album, but the album promises uncommon tracks that bear the Rahman stamp.

The song, a lovely melodious track by the maestro, will take you in its stride right from the start with its melody on the guitar. This track is sung by two singers – the humming part is done by Sonu Nigam, whereas the whole song is vocalised by Rahman’s discovery Javed Ali. What’s interesting is that it’s hard to make out that two singers have sung the song. Lyrics, penned by Prasoon Joshi, are simple and subtle, going with the flow of the music. And the use of Namibian desert as the back drop in the film is a great setting for a song like this. The track is already working wonders in the charts. An absolutely fine track, chosen for promotion.

Aye Bachchu
Full of energy and beats, this pacy track has chirpy lyrics by Prasoon. The song can remind you of the track ‘Hey Ya’ from ‘Kidnap’. This song is remarkable because of fantastic and spunky vocals by Suzanne. However, the melody does bear a resemblance to Rahman’s earlier tracks.

Kaise Mujhe
The song has haunting feel which lingers in your mind. Beginning with an impressive prelude, this love ballad is in the voice of ‘Tu Meri Dost Hai’ singer Benny Dayal and saccharine sweet voice of Shreya Ghosal. The lyrics are romantic with nice music. You will love Shreya’s voice, particularly when she sings the aalap.

The instrumental version of Kaise Mujhe has soothing and balmy effect. The musical piece has right fusion of two instruments – guitar and flute.

Here is the song perfect for parties, rendered with energy and variation by versatile Shreya Ghosal. She is quite experimental in this song. Lyrics are average and the way song sounds is all fun and frolic.

An unusual song with erratic melody given to mood swings, this track is very much jazzy in its picturisation. This is the song where you can admire Aamir not for his eights packs but six different vibrant looks and styles. Rendered by Karthik, the song is catchy in appearance.

Like the movie, the album also kept us waiting. The songs ‘Guzarish’ and ‘Kaise Mujhe’ are the tracks which you can hear in a repeat mode. The album has mixture of different kind of songs. Quite experimental though.

Rahman again has done terrific job of providing music to such a movie where the scope of songs lessens because of its subject. We can Guzarish Rahman to come up with such marvellous tracks again and again.
