Tunes that inspire love, passion and pathos - The Kisna: The Warrior Poet Music Review

By Aparajita Ghosh
Rating: 3/5

Music has always been the strong point of Subhash Ghai's films. From his collaboration with Laxmikant Pyarelal in yesteryears to his tagging with A R Rahman in recent projects, Ghai has never compromised on the quality of music.

The music of his movie Kisna is full of old-world charm with extensive use of classical and acoustic instruments to the tunes composed by A R Rahman and Ismail Darbar. Javed Akhtar's thoughtful and simple lyrics beautifully capture the mood and gist of many situations songs.

If the title of the movie happens to Kisna one can naturally expect good use of flute in the film's music. That is how the album opens - with an instrumental piece on flute. Rahman's mastery over melody is evident in this piece as he evokes emotions in a listener with a haunting tune. Another version of the same instrumental closes the album.

Flute is again dominant in Hum Hain Iss Pal Yahan which is a finely composed track quite efficiently sung by Madhoshree and Udit Narayan. Narayan's singing, however, has a bit sugary affectation. Still, it is the soothing melody of this number and the meaningful words by Akhtar that make the song one of the best compositions in the package.

Woh Kisna Hai gives a colorful account of Radha's love and Kisna's playfulness. Ismail Darbar lend his characteristic touch to this number by keeping the classical base of melody and embellishing it with tabla and flute interludes. Sukhwinder Singh further puts a lot of energy into his singing and lift the song high, while other singers - Ismail Darbar, Ayesha Darbar and Shailja - give a good support.

The album nudges into frivolous mood with Akhtar showing well-crafted frivolity with words in Tu Itni Pagli Kyun Hai.

Then follows the masterstroke by Ustad Rashid Khan who brings out the many dilemmas of love through his impressive singing in the classical number Kahe Uradi Mori Neend.

The mood is lightened with the frothy number Wohi Din Aa Gaya which is about a bride happy at the arrival of the day when her lover will come to take vows with her. The song is beautifully sung by Alka Yagnik, Sukhwinder Singh, Ayesha Darbar and Shailja.

Narration by actress Sushmita Sen opens the number Chilman Uthegi Nahi, which is a mujra song with Sush making special appearance as a courtesan. Sush opens the song with a sher Jumman miya, woh mehfil hi kya, jis mein dilwalon ke saath, diljale na ho? Tum dil se dilwalon ke liye gaana. Diljalon ka khayal hum rakhenge and then Hariharan and Alka Yagnik create the right mood with their singing.

Akhtar's expertise over his quill is apparent in the beautifully written song Aham Brahmasmi. Words like Mujhmein Shiv, Mujhmein Brahma, Mujhmein Vishnu, Mujhmein Krishna, Phir mein mandir kyon jaon reflect the wisdom and realization of God in self.

Ga, Tu Aisi Dhun Mein starts as a simple competition song between village kids buts then grows into a full-blown teaser reaching its crescendo in the style typical of many songs from Ghai's previous flicks.

Overall a good album.
