Starting off the album is "Badtameez Dil" by Benny Dayal. This number has no pauses, no breaks, not even time to take a breath for a split second. The lyrics consist, literally, of silly words put together to bring out a very fun and fast song. Benny Dayal does a great job singing each line at the speed of a jet and makes a web of crazy lyrics come together into a memorable song you can always dance to.
Next is "Balam Pichkari", shot on the occasion of Holi and is definitely one meant for discos and parties. Once you hear it, you will be hooked and there is no turning away from it's tunes. Vishal Dadlani and Shalmali Kholgade do a fabulous job at making the song into something that will leave you humming for a long time to come.
What is an album if there are no bhangra or traditional dance involved? Well, here's "Dilliwali Girlfriend" for you! Another upbeat number that will have you tapping your feet on the dance floor with your "girlfriend". Rising singer Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan come together to give this track its fast pace along with the lyrics that get you immediately grooving!
A sudden shift in mood comes with the next track of this album, "Kabira". Tochi Raina and Rekha Bharadwaj's vocals are perfect in bringing out the agony that the leads face in what presumably can be a high point in the movie. The lyrics are sure to pull the chords of your heart and have you feel the pain involved.
Next in line is "SubhanAllah", a song for those who are love struck. It entails the journey of falling in love, in Indian Idol 2010 winner, Sreeram Chandra, and Shilpa Rao's vocals. A very soft and soothing track, one that will surely grow on you, albeit after a few repeats.
The album continues with "Ilahi", sung by Mohit Chauhan. This track falls somewhere between an upbeat song full of energy and a slow and melodious song, with some parts crumbling to a yet slower tune. Not the most exciting song in this album and could possibly be passed with a skip.
Rounding off the album is one that has no video released yet but it is slated to be shot on the legendary Madhuri Dixit and Ranbir Kapoor, titled "Ghagra". This dance track is sung by Rekha Bharadwaj. Do give this one a try and it might just grow on you after hearing it a few times. Or maybe Madhuri will win you over.
Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani is a complete packaged album. It offers dance, soothing melodies and even a very slow and angst-filled track. Give the album a listen and do share your favorites with us!
