The upcoming Daawat-e-Ishq
, a Yash Raj romantic
comedy drama film starring the ever charming Aditya Roy Kapur
and the effervescent
, directed by Habib Faisal and produced by Aditya Chopra, is
set to be released in September 2014. The film is the second collaboration
between director and heroine after Ishqzaade
, and the first for
director and hero. Fan-favourite TV star Karan Wahi
will be making his
big-screen debut with the film.
But BollyCurry is here to talk about the music, which has just been released. Behind the tunes are Sajid-Wajid with Kausar Munir penning
the lyrics. The album has been put together with the grace of one who knows the
film intimately, and I think Bollywood enthusiasts will enjoy the fare.
The album opens with a blend of qawali
wedding song flavor. The song, which is incidentally the title track, sung
by Javed Ali
and Sunidhi Chauhan
, has the potential to really grab the
audience's attention. It is a well-written composition, and the singers have,
as always, done their work justice. This is one that might be hitting the top
track charts soon. There's also the instrumental version available.
There are two versions to the next song. Sung by Sonu Niigam
Keerthi Sagathia and Shreya Ghoshal
, "Mannat" has its own appeal in
each version. The musical arrangement is stunningly done, and we have to give
kudos to the composing duo for their composition. The singers have also
elevated an already fantastic piece of music with their melodious voices. There
is a strong feeling of belonging and an urge to be with their lover present in
the music and in the words, stirring the heart as one listens to the song.
"Rangreli" starts with the dhol
beat, and then moves on into a brass band beat, and ultimately
takes shape into a wedding song type bonanza. Sung by Wajid Ali
Ghoshal, this is once again a wonderfully written composition, though Wajid
does sometimes seem to be a misplaced vocal choice. Still, it is a good song
that will have feet tapping.
The next song is "Sharayana", sung by the
amazingly talented Shalmali Kholgade. Easy going, catchy and extremely hummable,
with a bit of a Western touch, this track is definitely one for the playlists
and the club alike.
"Jaadu Tone Waaliyan" is something one would not
expect from Sajid-Wajid since it is remotely different from the rest of their
usual work. Sung by Shabab Sabri, the song is a little loud with a consistent
beat to it that builds up the more you listen. There is a qawali feel
to it, mixed with a little bit of rock. It's different, but not bad; definitely
something to judge for yourself.
Overall, the album is very promising, and BollyCurry cannot
wait to see how the songs fit into the larger picture of the movie. The
lyricist has done a pretty decent job, and the compositions are fun and catchy.
Nothing particularly outstanding, but I think we will be seeing some of these
numbers on the charts soon!
