    • ROCKSTAR:: YOUTHFUL MUSIC WITH SOME SOULFUL LYRICS

      Rockstar music rating: 8 out of 10(Akhtar Ali wrote on Nov 4 2011 1:26PM)

      Whenever We hear about a IMTIAZ ALI directed film, two things come to our mind…
      1. Unique romantic concept
      2. Great Music

      Though, Imtiaz ali has always tried stories like SOCHA NAA THA, AHISTA AHISTA, JAB WE MET, LOVE AAJKAL…. All the movies have different flavors of love…

      Now…. ROCKSTAR….

      For the First time, Imtiyaz ali is trying his hands in a different subject… for the first time he is not coming up with a full fledge love story…
      But one thing is still similar… MUSIC….
      This time, Imtiaz ali brought to you a musical trio of REHMAN-KAMIL-CHAUHAN that will surely ROCK and SHOCK you….
      MUSIC BY A.R. REHMAN…
      LYRICS BY DR. IRSHAD KAMIL…
      MAXIMUM SONGS SUNG BY MOHIT CHAUHAN…


      Let us see what Rockstar’s Music has to offer us….

      If you Remember, There was a time when lyrics used to play crucial role in songs….

      Music Directors like Shankar Jaikishan, Laxmikant Pyarelal,Naushad, S.D. & R. D. Burman used to bring the souls to the words of Aanand Bakhshi, Hasrat Jaipuri, Majruh Sultanpuri, Sahir Ludhyanvi, Gulzar Saab etc… but slowly that era has been changed to a loud music dominated era, where words have lost their value…. Now a days, if Music is good, loud, rocking and foot tapping, then there is no need of good words, fit anything whatever you want… it doesn’t even matter…
      But You will still find some good words in Sad songs, Ghazals,etc. Few people like Gulzar and Javed Akhtar are still trying to keep the old era alive….

      The music of Rockstar will also remind you about that era of bollywood, where only one singer was used for one actor….like
      Dharmendra- Rafi Saab
      Amitabh- Kishore Da… etc
      Here,, Rehman followed the same pattern and used Mohit Chauhan’s Voice as a Playback for Ranbir Kapoor… and of course….

      Rockstar as an album consists of 14 tracks; 11 songs and 2 instrumental and one poetry reading….


      Lets Discuss about all the tracks….

      1. PHIR SE UDD CHALA…
      A fast beat track… sung by Mohit Chauhan … The first line itself suggests that it is all about a journey of a person…. Not a great track, but a cool track….

      2. JO BHI MAI… (O ya ya yaa….)
      “ maine yebhi socha hai aksar, tu bhi mai bhi sabhi hai sheeshe… khudi ko hum sabhi me dekhe….”
      words of the entire song are too good and really make you to start thinking about yourself….
      This song really has a potential to attract you….
      Mohit Chauhan’s voice makes the song special…

      3. KATIYA KAROON…
      A good Punjabi Dance Track sung by Harshdeep Kaur (additional Vocals by Sapna Awasthi)… you will surely start tapping your feet to the music….

      4. KUN FAYA KUN…
      Day by Day Rehman’s Hands on Qawwalis are becoming extremely good… Piya Haji Ali (Fiza), Khwaja Mere Khwaja (Jodha Akbar), Maula Maula (Delhi 6) and now Kun Faya Kun…
      Rehman is trying to bring a different flavor to this genre (Sufi Music)… The voices of Javed Ali, Rehman, and Mohit Chauhan make this song so Spiritual… but the real soul of this Qawwali is the Words….
      “Mann ke mere yeh bharam, Kacche mere yeh karam, Le kar chale hai kaha, mai toh janu naa…”

      5. SHEHER ME…
      A different type of song… this song will definitely remind you about Anu Malik’s style of commenting… Mohit Chauhan and Karthik’s vocals are plus point of this song… the words are quite different, which makes the song unique …

      6. HAWA HAWA…
      A storytelling song… May be Latin/ Spanish dance form… the flow of the song is like someone is telling you the story…
      Mohit Chauhan did a good with the vocals along with Viviane Chaix, Tanvi Shah, Suvi Suresh and Shalini…
      Irshad kamil brought a magic of his pen with some great emotional lines like… “Sone ki Deeware, Mujhe Khushi na ye de paaye… Azadi de mujhe tu mere khuda, lele tu daulat aur kar de riha…”

      7. AUR HO….
      A sort of Angry Sad Song…. Song is sung by Mohit Chauhan again… but the highlight of the song is Background Vocals by ALMA FEROVIC, which actually makes you to feel the pain deep in the heart….

      8. TANGO FOR TAJ…
      A great, enjoyable music…. As a title suggests, it might be a great salute to TAJ….


      9. TUM KO…
      KAVITA KRISHNAMURTHY SUBRAMANIUM….. The name itself has enough potential to recognize you about the great of the voice behind the song… A much softer and romantic version of TUMHO… It was great to hear Kavita subramanium singing a romantic track after a long time… music and words also spread romance in the air….

      10. THE DICHOTOMY OF FAME…
      A great work done by BALESH on SHEHNAI and KABULI on GUITARS… enjoyable music

      11. NAADAAN PARINDEY…
      “ Kaaga re Kaaga re, Mori Itni araj tose, chun chun khaiyo maas… arajiya re khaiyo na tu naina morey, khaiyo na do naina mohe piya ke Milan ki aas…” Irshad Kamil did a great job by writing some really fabulous lines…
      Rehman and mohit chauhan gave the vocals…. And musically this song looks really good…

      12. TUM HO….
      One of the most romantic track of the time….
      mohit chauhan created a romance by his voice…. Music is so soft that you will feel a velvet touch at your heart… and of course irshad kamil wrote some mesmerizing line… “Tum ho paas mere, saath mere ho tum yun, Jitna mehsoos karu tum ko, utna hi paa bhi lu…”
      Suzzane D’mello’s voice in Background makes the song more romantic…

      13. SAADDA HAQ…
      The revolutionary song…. At the start of the song itself, Orianthi leaves her mark with great Guitar work, which keeps continued till the end…. Irshad Kamil wrote some really revolutionary lines… Mohit Chauhan gave a powerful voice and Clinton Cerejo arranged the choral vocals so well…

      14. MEETING PLACE…
      A Poetry Penned by RUMI…. narrated by Ranbir Kapoor…


      In this album you will find that great combination of different musical instruments like Guitars, violins, drums, shehnai, piano, some regional and International instruments… A.R. Rehman also tries to bring Different Musical forms to you which make the album different…. Irshad Kamil also wrote some great, some emotional, some revolutionary and some young-looking lines… He did a magic with words in few songs… and mdae those song special…

      This album has a everything for the young generation….


      In simple words,
      Rockstar as an album has a Youthful Music and some Soulful Lyrics…

      My Pick from the album

      SADDA HAQ, TUM HO, NADAAN PARINDEY, JO BHI MAI, KUN FAYA KUN, HAWA HAWA….

      but TUM KO, SHEHER MEIN, KATIYA KAROON, AUR HO and PHIR SE UDD CHALA are also good…
