Rakesh Omprakash Mehra is will strike back in Bollywood with Delhi-6 after his blockbuster flick Rang De Basanti took a nation by surprise. Delhi-6 (earlier titled Dilli 6) will star Abhishek Bachchan, Sonam Kapoor and Om Puri in the lead roles. The music has been composed by A.R Rahman. The lyrics have been penned down by Prasoon Joshi. Currently a song from the soundtrack titled Masakalli is running in the promos on national television. According to me A.R Rahman had a hard time creating some fine music in 2008 with some major disappointments. Delhi-6 is Rahman’s first Bollywood soundtrack in 2009. Read on for the music review of Delhi-6.
Delhi 6 Music Review song -Aarti (Tumre Bhavan Mein)
The soundtrack begins on a serious note with this track titled Aarti. The melody in the background is so smooth. A decent beginning to the most anticipated music soundtrack for 2009.
Delhi 6 Music Review song- Arziyan
Javed Ali and Kailash Kher team up for this next song Arziyan. The killer tabla are back. The clapping, the soothing music and the brilliant voices make this song an instant hit. Whoa! A.R Rahman’s first song composition after a really long time that’s totally worth the money. I love the lyrics too. Full marks to Rahman!
Delhi 6 Music Review song-Bhor Bhaye
Here is A.R Rahman’s attempt to create a classic. He’s used up Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan’s vocals and mashed them up with Gujri Todi and Shreya Ghosal. A decent effort though it lacks that special touch to it.
Delhi 6 Music Review song- Delhi 6
Here comes the title track for the film sung by Blaaze, Benny Dayal, Tanvi, Claire and Vivinenne Pocha. Expectations were high for this track. May be too high. Rahman blew it up. The lyrics are far too ordinary and the singers perform miserably. Why does Rahman screw up like this in the middle of a good soundtrack?
Delhi 6 Music Review song-Dil Gira Dafatan
Dil Gira Dafatan has been sung by Ash King with backing vocals by Chinmayee. It’s a soft romantic track with the trademark Rahman touch. Prasoon Joshi chips in some real good lyrics into this lovable song. The soundtrack is getting better. Phew!
Delhi 6 Music Review song-Genda Phool
Talk about getting better and Genda Phool may be Rahman’s finest compositions in the entire Delhi-6 soundtrack. Rekha Bharadwaj along with Shraddha Pandit and Sujata Majumdar sing beautifully for this interesting song. I’m eager to watch this on-screen. Full marks to Rahman again! Rahman is back folks!
