As far as my favourite songs so far this year goes, they have to be 'Baby Doll', 'London Thumakda', 'Chandaniya', 'Mast Magan' and 'Iski Uski' from the 2 States album. 'Locha-e-Ulfat' and 'Offo' are also nice but not my favourites.
From the Gunday music album, my favourite song is 'Tune Maari Entriyaan'.
I just LOVE this song. It has such a catchy tune that I instantly feel like dancing whenever I listen to this song.
I've lost count of the number of times I've listened to it ( and danced to it too ) and I still haven't got over it!
I love Ranveer Singh in the video of this song.
He does the 'tang tang'
step with the 'ghanti'
. His expressions in the song are fab too.
From the Hasee Toh Phasee music album, my favourite is 'Drama Queen'. It's a really catchy song! Don't like the video though.
From the Highway music album, my favourites are 'Maahi Ve', 'Pataka Guddi' (both the female and male version) and 'Sooha Saaha'. Gosh I LOVE 'Sooha Saaha'! It's such a soothing song! It's a lullaby actually. The song itself doesn't have much meaning to it. The term 'Sooha Saaha' refers to my little red rabbit ; it has been used as a term of endearment. My favourite lines from the song are the lines that have been sung by Alia Bhatt. Those are the only lines in the song that have an underlying meaning to it. Both literal and symbolic. Plus, Alia has sung these lines beautifully. She has a really sweet voice.
Even 'Wanna Mashup' (Highway) is nice. My favourite line from this song is 'You tried to chain me, slave me, pain me, flame me, oh you know, you can't tame me'
I don't like 'Kahaan Hoon Main' (Highway) as a song, but it really holds a lot of meaning. It comes at a very crucial point in the film where the protagonists are literally like kahaan hoon main, kya kar raha hoon, kyu kar raha hoon?
Again there is the 'Tu Kuja Mann Kuja' song (Highway) that has such mesmerizing lyrics! It's like you are directly talking to God, a prayer sort of. Very touching and soulful lyrics.
Last but not the least, there is 'Heera' from Highway which is not exactly a song ; it's a collection of 3 'dohas'
of Sant Kabir. The 3 'dohas'
sung in 'Heera' are about diamond. 'Heera' has a very soothing tone plus the 'dohas'/
lyrics have a very deep meaning to them. Beautifully composed by A.R. Rahman!
I love Sufi songs, in general. The Highway music album is very Sufi ; maybe that's why I love it so much!
. I feel Imtiaz Ali and Sufism have a very deep connection. Imtiaz Ali is a Sufi at heart. His love for Sufism can very well be seen in his body of work a la Rockstar, Highway.
The Highway music album is deffo Sufi music at its best.
