Melodies of rustic flavour - The Aaja Nachley Music Review

By Aparajita Ghosh
Rating: 2.5/5

The melodies of 'Aaja Nachle' conjure up bucolic images of an Indian countryside. The flavour of music by Salim-Sulaiman is strictly rustic. The emphasis is on Indian instruments like flute, sitar, harmonium, sarangi, ghungroo and dholki, but there is also a generous sprinkling of western sounds and beats.

Title song “Aaja Nachle” opens with a catchy melody on Ektaara (single string instrument). Salim-Sulaiman have given a very groovy beat to this dance number. Sunidhi Chauhan, singing for Madhuri, renders the song in controlled and restrained way. Piyush Mishra's words have a rural appeal.

The song's reprise version has high tempo, heavy beats, and techno feel. But it is not a patch on the original.

“Ishq Hua” is an utterly forgettable romantic track with a mellow mix of Indian and western styles of music. The only thing good about this slow-paced song is Sonu Nigam's singing. Shreya Ghoshal's voice sounds a tad high-pitched. Jaideep Sahni's lyrics are plain ordinary.

“Show Me Your Jalwa” by Richa Sharma and Kailash Kher is the best track in the album. The English title of this song can be misleading. For the song itself is full of rustic feel with beats of dholki, ghungroo and tabla. Richa Sharma is in her elements in this track. Her voice modulation captures the fun flavour of the song. Kailash Kher complements her and sings his part with gusto. Jaideep Sahni's lyrics are very eclectic and well rhymed.

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan jars your senses with his highly impressive singing in “O Re Piya”, a melancholic romantic song with the flavour of a qawwali. The song begins with a haunting melody on flute and keeps flitting between western beats and dholki. Salim-Sulaiman use a number of Indian instruments with western beats in this track, but the music doesn't overpower the vocals. “O Re Piya” has a lilting melody, it has charged up beats of qawwali, and it also has orchestration in the end. But it is Rahat Fateh Ali Khan who towers above the music in this track.

“Soniye Mil Ja” celebrates the arrival of youth. The song has Madhuri Dixit rendering a few lines before Sukhwinder Singh takes over and lifts the song to a new level. However, what makes “Soniye Mil Ja” a passable track is lack of a catchy melody. The music in the song is too loud and singing by Sukhwinder and Sunidhi Chauhan is pretty average. Thankfully, the song is just over three-and-a-half minutes long.

“Is Pal” is like a weepy romantic track with good tabla accompaniment in the background. Not a song to make an impact in the first hearing, Is Pal once again has Sonu Nigam at his best. Shreya Ghoshal gives him good company.

“Koi Patthar Se Na Maare” is a dramatic song with poetic lyrics by Piyush Mishra but an average melody by Salim-Sulaiman. The music duo keeps the music minimal in this track but lay heavy emphasis on drums and vocals. The female singers - Sunidhi Chauhan and Shreya Ghoshal - do a commendable job, while Sonu Nigam gets to chip in a few lines at the end.

Newcomer Sonia Saigal sounds like Madonna in “Dance With Me”, which has a very disco feel with saxophone accompaniment in the background. What is remarkable is that after composing melodies entrenched in rustic flavour, Salim-Sulaiman show another side of theirs with this ultra-western number. A pretty hummable track.

All in all, the music of Aaja Nachle is no great shakes. But it has a few songs that stay with you.

Aaja Nachley Reviews 
Movie Review : Just about watchable (2.5/5)
'Aaja Nachle' is a perfect example of how good actors can sometimes save a poor movie and make it watchable, at least once. The fault partly lies with the story, which is too damn plain and predictable. The script doesn't even attempt to go into the finer points of the story. On top of it, t...
