Singer: Amit Mishra
Lyrics- Amitabh Bhattacharya

The album begins on a mesmerizing note with a Sufi lead track supported by Alternative Rock arrangements. Amit Mishra performs par excellence with his passionate vocals and lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya deserve a special mention. The song has a soul and amazing passion which takes the listener to a new world of Music. In short- it reflects the mood of the film with musical perfection. The song is an impressive mélange of Indian aroma with Modern rock blend.

Channa Mereya

Singer: Arijit Singh
Lyrics- Amitabh Bhattacharya

On the contrary, a soft number from the master Arijit Singh arrives next. The song is an ideal farewell number with poetic lyrics from Amitabh Bhattacharya, who does the magical once again. The mild electric guitar touches and dholak lead rhythm is quite magical in every respect. The shehnai touch in the interlude is another masterstroke by the composer.

The Breakup Song

Singers- Arijit Singh, Badshah, Jonita Gandhi & Nakash Aziz
Lyrics- Amitabh Bhattacharya

A funny take on something sad like breakup gives the album a contemporary touch. Arijit Singh- who usually sings slow numbers delivers a fast paced number with great ease. Jonita Gandhi’s swift vocals give it an immediate modern aura. The song gives breakup a funny and new found meaning in  a musical way! Interestingly, it also has a classical touch associated with it and doesn’t sound loud or raucous at any point in time.

Ae Dil Hai Mushkil

Singer: Arijit Singh
Lyrics- Amitabh Bhattacharya

An amazing estrangement song with masterful symphony strings and passionate vocals of Arijit Singh. Composed in the inquisitive Western minor scale, the song automatically gets an eerie feel with amazing melody. The breezy saxophone, progressive rhythm gets even better with the song’s presentation. Arijit Singh scores par excellence with his one-man show in this solo!


Singer: Pardeep Singh Sran & Nakash Aziz
Lyrics- Amitabh Bhattacharya

Cutiepie is the latest addition to the album, sealing off the list. With the comic lyrics and the support of standard party trance, the song is a feel good experience. But it doesn’t stand out and pull the listener like the previous ones. Probably that was intentional since the song is being promoted as the filmy song of the year and it does sound typical.

Verdict: Ae DIl Hai Mushkil is a thoroughly enjoyable fare where music, lyrics and singers come in flawless sync!
( 3.0 / 5.0 )
