Lyrics : Swanand Kirkire.
3 idiots – wow… you wonder what kind of a title is that? Then you see the name Aamir Khan and then nothing else matters. You certainly know that you can expect something fresh and different from the movie. Added to this is the star cast of Madhavan, Sharman Joshi, Kareena Kapoor and Boman Irani. Directed by Rajkumar Hirani expectations are very high for the movie. Music has been composed by Shantanu Moitra. Although he has given hit music in Parineeta and Lage Raho Munnabhai, he has not been successful commercially. Yet his songs are good and have quite a decent fan following. Apart from that when you think again that this is an Aamir’s movie and hence you can expect songs to be good.

Aal Izz Well...
Vocals: Sonu Nigam, Swanand Kirkire, Shaan

The song begins with a cockerel crowing. With that you sit up and wonder what the song is going to be like. Then enters Sonu Nigam humming like his usual self and then you sit back and enjoy the song which has a new flavor. A very fast peppy number which Sonu has sung with different tones and modulations. To add to the combination is Shaan which reminds you of Koi Kahe from Dil Chahta
  3 Idiots
hai... The local flavor with whistle sound, and noise of beating of vessel reminds you of a college set up. This song is bound to be famous with college goers. Swanand Kirkire's lyrics are very impressive and easy to catch on.

Aal Izz Well (Remix version)...
Vocals: Sonu Nigam, Swanand Kirkire, Shaan

The remix version of this song is even better than the original. Reason: the rap, fast and rhythmic beats of the drums, the well sung chorus, whistle sound and Sonu’s modulations. This song will not only be a chartbuster but also will play in all the college festivals and meets.

Zoobi Doobi...

Vocals: Sonu Nigam,
Shreya Ghoshal

The song begins with the magical voice of Shreya and then enters Sonu in yet another deadly combination. This song has been made for dancing and that too in the rain. Although the tunes in between remind you of those in 70’s and 80’s it is quite catchy. Almost at the end Shreya has sung in different modulation which is very western which makes you want to hum along. Here again the remix version is fast and peppy and better than the original one.

Behti Hawa Sa Tha Woh...
Shaan and Shantanu Moitra

A very soulful song …The lyrics explain the character of Aamir and how his friends are now searching for him. This song has Shantanu written on it as there is a hint of Bengali feel. Very little instruments used. Little bit of flute and beats are used in the background with emphasis on the voice. The arrangements with the voice is however very impressive. This song will be liked when seen with the visuals.

Give Me Some Sunshine...
Suraj Jagan and Sharman Joshi

The song begins with tunes on the guitar and anecdotes narrated by Sharman. The lyrics are about youngsters not being allowed to live life the way they want to. Another song that is visually inclined. Definitely another college song that will surely be famous with the youth, the tune however reminds one of Shankar- Ehsaan- Loy combination. But that could be because of the tunes on guitar. On the whole, although the song is a little slow it will surely pick up with the college crowd.

Jaane Nahin Denge Tujhe ...
Vocals: Sonu Nigam

One of the best renditions of Sonu, one would say. A very soulful and passionate song that has been given life by the singer. Sonu has gone for a little higher pitch than he usually does. The lyrics are yet again wonderful. This song is about friendship and friends standing up for each other and not letting the other fail.


The songs are quite good. Although most of them might not hit instantly it will surely pick up as the movie releases. Most of the songs are soulful and singers have done full justice to the tune and lyrics. The lyrics are also very good and written to suit the situation. A factor to note is that there is a variation in the songs from the peppy Aal izz well to Jaane nahin... The music director gives his best with this variation. The songs actually make you want to see the movie.
