An adaptation of Emma, Jane Austen's famous
Victorian novel, the movie Aisha, namesake its prime character,
is a Sonam Kapoor-Abhay Deol starer, and an Anil Kapoor home production.
Having made to the gossip columns every now and then over the past few
months, one of major buzz around this movie has allegedly linked the
leading pair, Sonam and Abhay, romantically.
But all that set
aside, with the music album of Aisha finally hitting the stores,
we tell you without talking in riddles - this one you want to pocket
without second thoughts!
Unconventional, the good way -
for no less could be expected with Amit Trivedi at the helm of chord-ial
and musical affairs - the album contains tracks which spring up to
catch your attention, and continue to grow on you with repetitive
listening. With an impressive modulation in singing styles, a blend of
orthodox instruments with ingenious ones for background scores, and
employing the style of chorus groups humming peppy beats in several
songs - Aisha is a complete package. Entertaining, addictive, and
lyrically well suited to the movie's storyline.
the title track, begins with an interesting bird clock like sound added
to bongo beats, a chorus humming joins in and the impact of the musical
score is a fabulous group effort once the saxophones and trumpets join
the family of instruments employed. Javed Akhtar with the lyrics
effectively sums up the character of Aisha in this song. Sung by Ash
King (with occasional backing from Trivedi himself), the brilliance of
the song lies in how the note of King's vocals creates a semblance that
tempts one to imagine Abhay Deol singing the song for real! Something
about the song is reminiscent of the popular 2008 chartbuster Kabhi
Kabhi Aditi ( JTYJN ), perhaps the casual throw in the
singing and the attractive outcome of oddly mixed and matched
instruments for interludes between paragraphs. The atypical attributes
of this song as a title track make it a strong recommendation - breezy,
easy on nerves, an ideal way to kick start the album!
Mitthi Mitthi we predict, is all set to become the new favorite on
wedding dance floors! Complete with the shaadi band baja music
and enhancing dhol beats this song is everything we call
'live-it-up-the-Punjabi-pop-way'! There is use of folksy instruments,
customized with techno effects. Tochi Raina is good choice for the
background singing. This one should make it to your latest party play
lists right away!
There is a DJ club mix version of the song -
while the original is certainly an edge better, the DJ mixing adds
an greater pace to the song which is bound to appeal the dancing crowds
The third song of the album is a pleasing evening number, accordingly
A captivating piece of acoustic strumming starts it off, and soon
enough the duo of composer-singer Trivedi and Neuman Pinto cast a spell
lending their vocals to the lilting
composition. Easy, light, the kind which gets you tipsy-ish high from
merely, wishfully swaying to it! Javed Akhtar pens lyrics befitting the
atmosphere of the song - the kind which make you smile cute and
curious! Its the perfect song to picture playing in the background on
romantic evening date with a new found love! Relying on the overlapping
acoustic strumming, and addictive chorus humming, the song weaves
magic, for a magical time!
Behke Behke has
its way of urging you to let go of all hesitation and shake a good leg
or two! A gleeful mix of European beats - Spanish, even something of the
famous Irish tapping - hints of Latin American dancing music,
orchestrated into an overall local Goan style popular beach tune
structure. The composition also hints distant retro traces - both in
the Indian and the Western styles. Anushka in her singing incorporates
the mood of the song, bringing out its true character wonderfully, while
joined in for the male parts by Samrat Kaushal and Raman Mahadevan. Its
the kind of song you want to play on repeat around a camp fire all
night long! Lookout for this one in reality dance shows, award function
performances, et al..
By the Way brings back to ones mind
the days of Anushka Manchanda singing for the sensational girl band
Viva! For this song which is full on its masti quotient, Anushka
delivers the 'i-give-no-damn' lyrics with a bindaas attitude in
all of her singing. The composition combines everything from a peppy
chorus cooing, great drumming among other percussion instrumental beats,
heavy electric guitar strumming and all such pop-rock-esque musical
contributors. This song can do wonders curing sour moods with its plain
intention to energize the listeners until they're foot tapping, hand
clapping, and head banging! Strongly recommended for friend stay overs,
disc nights, bathroom karaoke redemption, bad traffic days on the road
... and all such! An adrenaline rush is guaranteed, as is the success of
this song in weeks to come, we say!
in the album is Lehrein, categorically a
soft melancholic melody. While a constant note of the keyboard in the
background sounds throughout the duration of the song, employing a
violin for the interludes between singing has a lingering impact. The
drumming is subtle and matches well, the down tone of Amit Trivedi's
beautiful composition. Anusha Mani's gently raspy vocals lend the
perfect emotion to the meaningful lyrics by Javed Akhtar. The song has
the power to stir latent emotions and moods in the listener - the kind
which make one sit back, and revisit forgotten memories!
is a remix version of this track, which is half baked compared to the
original - or just perhaps, such are not the tracks one should chose to
remix/remake at all!
All in all, Aisha is
great collection of songs for all times and occasions! Amit Trivedi
(after the phenomenal success of Dev D) comes back with another
signature product! In the musical world this young lad shall become a
genre of his own in days to come. Javed saab is wonderful with
his pen, as he is versatile ... and the choice of singers for each track
is thoughtfully right.
