music and not mouthed by any actors. Rahman just
uses simple string instruments and especially puts guitars
to good use to give soul to this number. A song, which would
surely become a favorite among fans of soft melodies. It has
a striking similarity to Rang De Basanti’s ‘Tu
Rekha Bharadwaj, Shraddha Pandit, Sujata Majumdar with supreme
ease transform you to rustic village but Rahman with his brilliant
usage of western instruments transforms you to another world
of ecstasy all together. With Rajat Dholakhia sharing the
music credits with the maestro, this little piece is sure
to rule the charts and will be constantly used at many marriage
It’s a small shayeri voiced by Amitabh Bachchan which
is given an earthly, vibrating soothing music. The shayeri
does demand a ‘wah-wah’. (As it runs for less
than a minute we aren’t rating it).
A rap and hip-hop song which sounds like a satire at the world
itself, Karthik, Naresh, Srinivas, Bony Chakravarthy have
rendered the song brilliantly with Rehmanism taking over.
With peppy and danceable music this is going to ring in many
phones as a ringtone for a while.
This has been running in our minds for quite a while thanks
to the promos. Rehman’s slow poison seems to work brilliantly
yet again as the 40 sec start up to the song in the promos’
have already captured the hearts of many million Rehman fans.
And with the full song it is going to put the whole nation
in a frenzy. It might be the next Kabhie Kabhie Aditi or the
next Chaya Chaya to say the least. Brilliant placement of
instruments and Mohit Chouhan’s lively rendition makes
this a must hear. Masakali will do for Mohit what Chaya Chaya
did for Sikhwinder.
Rahman doesn’t keep the best to himself but whatever
he renders would become the best automatically and this song
sung by A R Rahman along with Benny Dayal & Tanvi is a
simple song driven to greatness by our Mozart’s magical
voice. A romantic number which will be widely used by people
who love to spend their time at the beach watching the sunset.
Rahman has done it yet again, a perfect soundtrack, which
has something for everyone. This is not a musical - this is
magical! Go and buy the original CD available on T-series,
as this album is going to fly off the music counters in no
time. All hail the director Rakesh Omprakash Mehra for selecting
these masterpieces and compiling everything together. Even
if Slumdog doesn’t get the final nod from the Oscars
this year, we have a worthy album, which can bring us the
