Delectable potpourri - The Dilli 6 Music Review

By Usha Lakra
Rating: 3.5/5

Another great album by A R Rahman, 'Delhi-6', with right blend of Indian and Western music, is unlike Rahman's any other previous work. We are still spellbound by 'Ghajini' and 'Yuvvraaj' tracks. And kids haven't stopped dancing to 'Pappu can't dance, sala'. Now it's 'Masakalli' everywhere.

Who else can deliver so consistently than A R Rahman, the one who believes in experimentation and knows how to explore new realms of music! 'Delhi-6' tracks prove that, as none of the songs fall into the same genre. All ten tracks are vibrant in sounds. Lyrics by Prasoon Joshi are poetic and yet contemporary.

A song like Masakalli is a rare one. It was last addition to the album and is rocking the nation with its unconventional style and lyrics. It's been ages since a song picturised on a dove came. The number also personifies Sonam's character in the film. Prasoon Joshi has come a long way since 'Rang De Basanti', as the song lyrics seem to be written by somebody like Gulzar. But what makes the song unique and catchy is Mohit Chauhan's stylish and frisky rendition.

Then you have a song like Arziyan, a simple qawwali style track which is slightly reminiscent of 'Jodhaa Akbar' song 'Khwaja Mere Khwaja', vocalized by Rahman's favorite Javed Ali, and adding the sufiana touch to the song is expert Kailash Kher. Kailash sings such song with aplomb and you can feel spirituality running through your veins while listening to him. Arziyan main sari chehre pe likh ke laya hoon.

Soft numbers like Dil Gira Dafatan will win you over instantly. Here, Rahman digs into his own domain. 'Anjana' song from 'Yuva' is very near to this track in term of music and treatment. Rahman repeats Chinamaye after a long time and she has done a remarkable job again. Sharing the mike with her is a new singer Ash King.

Listeners will be shocked with a song like Hey Kaala Bandar , it appears a mismatch. With a touch of rap, this track is not that remarkable, sung by the trio of Naresh Iyer, Boney Chakravarthy and Karthik Sgr.

Adding variety to the album is a marriage song in rustic style, Genda Phool, in a husky voice of Rekha Bharadwaj and giving her company over mike are singers Shraddha Pandit and Sujata Mazumdar. The song marks the merging of ghost composer Rajat Dholakia and A R Rahman.

Bhor Bhaye is a typical Indian classical number, bringing out Shreya Ghosal's best. As an artist she has evolved and gets her due with this song. The track with Hindi classical music exponents Gujri Todi and Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali is a sheer pleasure to hear during morning hours. Devotional songs like Aarti - Tumhare Bhavan Mein makes this album worthy for collection and also sets this music album apart from other contemporary albums.

Rehna Tu is nothing exceptional but very much a Rahman song like 'Rang De Basanti' tracks in the voice of Benny Dayal, A R Rahman and Tanvi Shah. The title track Delhi 6 is a zappy number with stress on music supported by vocals by a bunch of singers that include Benny Dayal, Blaze, Vivinenne Pocha, Claire and Tanvi Shah.

And finally there is a spiritual poem like a Kabir couplet, Noor, with thought-provoking lines like ishq hai usse, to sab se ishq kar in an Amitabh Bachchan baritone.

A R Rahman gives a hattrick with this album after 'Slumdog' and 'Ghajini'. The team of Rakeysh Omprakash Mehra, Rahman and Prasoon Joshi again has given a fantastic album after 'Rang De Basanti'. The songs like 'Arziyan', 'Genda Phool' or 'Aarti' or say 'Bhor Bhaye' add to the rich variety of songs comprising the entire album. But others are a bit disappointment as at various notes the tracks sound very similar to Rahman's previous tunes.

But with fabulous scores like 'Masakalli', you can expect metamorphosis of Bollywood music. And we know there is a lot to come from Rahman, the wizard of music.
