EXPECTATIONS : After a good album coming from Ajay-Atul "AGNEEPATH" and A.R.Rahman "EKK DEEWANA THA", any other music album releasing had to face competition for it. Still "Kunwara" and "Darmiyaan" snatched much attention and started collecting expectations for "Jodi Breakers" music. Also Salim-Sulaiman had a good past year. They always compose very soulful & touching music. So, JODI BREAKERS music was an album to look forward to.
MUSIC REVIEW :
1. TRACK NAME : Kunwara
ARTIST (s) : Salim Merchant
The album starts with a rocking number but scarce do people know that because the 'Shehnai' tune starts to confuse. Salim Merchant, one of the composer duo puts his vocal on one of the most liked tracks of recent time KUNWARA. Excellent composition & superfine lyrics as a 'flirty' song makes this track a must listen. It immediately catches the 'Aadat Se Majboor' feel and the pace does the rest. Just keep your mind aside from one of the best tracks of 2011 'Aadat Se Majboor' and enjoy 'Kunwara'. Even though you find similarity, this one will also affect your flirty nerves. Super Track!
2. TRACK NAME : Bipasha
ARTIST (s) : Shradha Pandit, Shadab Faridi
If anyone can call up 'Lucky Boy' from BAH then get ready for a much better listen than that one cause BIPASHA is gonna be the best item number in Bipasha Basu's career (if perfectly picturized). "Do Dhaari Talwar" & "Namak" are the two numbers that comes in your mind first if you find similarity to any other item tracks. 'Jigar Ka Tukda' lady Shradha Pandit takes the vocals this time and Shadab Faridi makes a guest vocal in the 'antara's. Bipasha has an Arabian feel in it with some modern techno beats. Surely gonna rock the charts once arrived.
3. TRACK NAME : Darmiyaan
ARTIST (s) : Shafqat Amanat Ali & Clinton Carejo / Shreya Ghoshal (Reprised)
The most beautiful song of recent times makes its arrival through Shafqat Amanat Ali & Clinton Carejo, DARMIYAAN. Written beautifully by Irshad Kamil, DARMIYAAN has a strong mixed feeling of classical and sufi. Shafqat's soulful voice reedems the temptation in the song. After a long time, such a beautiful song with less artificiality feel and absolutely without any techno rhythm takes an arrival and surely this one will snatch much attention this season. There's also a 'Reprised' version of this track sung alone by Shreya Ghoshal and the track is much slower than the original one. So, it can be perfectly used in the background of any sentimental situation of the movie.
4. TRACK NAME : Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai
ARTIST (s) : Salim Merchant
Remember 'Khudaya Ve' from 'LUCK', one of the most liked sad tracks with soulful lyrical 'mukhra's. Sung beautifully by Salim Merchant, MUJHKO TERI ZAROORAT HAI will appeal to many slow & melodious music lover souls. Even though it sounds similar to many other Salim-Sulaiman composed sad tracks, Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hai is perfect in its way.
5. TRACK NAME : Jab Main Tumhare Saath Hun
ARTIST (s) : Benny Dayal, Shilpa Rao & Salim Merchant
'Love Love Love' from 'Love Breakups & Zindagi', 'Mil Gaya' from 'Shakal Pe Mat Ja' and many other tracks fall in the same genre of JAB MAIN TUMHARE SAATH HUN, Romance with a pinch of Happiness. 'Jab Main Yumhare Saath Hun' is pacy, light & immensely melodious & if it doesn't anyhow make to the chart-busters, it will be listened after and after by many music lovers. Shilpa Rao's soulful voice, Salim Merchant's romantics tunes and vocals & Benny Dayal's joyful & refreshing fell makes this track individually superfine & a must listen.
As Salim-Sulaiman have evolved themselves entirely from past till now, their tracks have been more powerful and refreshing time after time. JODI BREAKERS is a certain album where not recommending any one track breeds guilt in minds. Salim-Sulaiman's powerful and effective compositions and extravagant lyrics by Shabbir Ahmed & Irshad Kamil - this album has got perfection in every corner. So, finally, no wonder the movie will rely only on its x-factor and cheesy dialogues, but the soundtrack of the movie shows too much of hope. Be prepared for the best soundtrack of this year till now - JODI BREAKERS.
Kunwara, Bipasha, Darmiyaan, Jab Main Tumhare Saath Hun
