It is an obvious fact that each time AR Rahman composes music, magic is created. But with Lekar Hum Deewana Dil, the king of music failed to impress us big time. With masterpieces like Rockstar, Jodhaa Akbar, Swades, Slumdog Millionaire etc, AR Rahman has always set a high bar in terms of phenomenonal music. We wonder what went wrong with Lekar Hum Deewana Dil. In an attempt to create music for the young ear, AR Rahman has put aside his brilliance and has given us one kind of a raw album. At least that’s what we think and we are sure you will agree with us too.
Here is Lekar Hum Deewana Dil music review starring newcomers Armaan Jain and Deeksha.
Music by: AR Rahman
Lyrics by: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Khalifa: The album begins with this song Khalifa and is only great song in the film. We have an enthusiastic AR Rahman lend his voice to this track. There are a host of other singers join in the chorus. The song opens with a rap and is definitely going to be on repeat for quite some time!
Beqasoor: Crooned in melodiously by singers Shweta Pandit and Nakash Aziz, Beqasoor is a lovey-dovey track and is the next and last nice track of the film. Much credit goes to the singers who have put in quite an effort to make this song sound good.
Allahda: The song is nothing but ordinary. It has some fine lyrics and a pretty good tune to it but is definitely not the kind of song you will expect AR rahman to deliver. Sung by Shiraz Uppal, this song is just okay-ish.
Mawwali Qawalli: You might expect a qawali but this is no where close to one. It has a good set of percusiions and drumming and bass and is quite peppy but surely not worth listening twice.
Tu shining: The song has some sad lyrics to its credit. Also singer Hriday Gattani fails to impress with the song Tu Shining. This is one song you wouldn’t mind skipping on your playlist.
All in all, the music of Lekar Hum Deewana Dil isn’t much pleasing to the ear although one must appreciate the singers’ efforts in every song. We really hope AR Rahman’s next project sounds no where close to this one.
