Well, here is the day. The much awaited movie Sarbjit starring Aishwarya Rai Bachchan, Randeep Hooda and Richa Chaddha is about to release tomorrow and here we are with the track wise dissection of the music album. With 10 tracks lasting for a tad above 40 minutes, this is a pretty long music album. And we loved listening to it to review for you guys. Read on more in the detailed Sarbjit Music Review below.
Amaal Mallik kicks off this album with his trademarked melody. Arijit Singh and Tulsi Kumar team up for heart-warming vocals. Rashmi Virag seems to create some really marvellous songs when teaming up with Amaal Mallik. And this song is no exception. Tulsi Kumar’s voice looks like it is made for this song. And what can one say about Arijit’s voice when put to right use. Definitely in our playlist.
A dramatic(melodramatic) song. It has some awesome lyrics by Rashmi Virag and Jaani. The music of this song is given by Jeet Ganguly which is possibly the major factor that restricts the song. While the song gets awesome after the first stanza, it gets back to the normal pace quickly where even the melodious voice of Sonu Nigam is not enough to make us empathise with the song’s subject character. Not in our playlist.
3. Tung Lak
Okay, this song has some solid elements to be a perfect bhangra track, But, the production of this song tries to put a lot of sounds at once, also having elements of trap. This song might feel good for one or two listens at max. This can be interesting to watch on the screen, but if we take it as just the song. This is not what we would have expected after seeing names like Sukhwinder Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shail Hada and Kalpana Gandharva in the vocals roster. This song by Shail-Pritesh will definitely stay out of our playlists.
Now this is an awesome track. Tanishk Bagchi, who gave us a soft track like ‘Bolna‘ in Kapoor & Sons, is here with a power packed track full of trance. The right vocals of Shafqat Amanat Ali suit the song perfectly. The lyrics by Arafat Mehmood are great but seem to be overpowered by the even more awesome music. Definitely in our playlist.
This song by Shail-Pritesh makes up for everything that was wrong with Tung Lak. Paired with brilliant lyrics by A M Turaz, vocals by Shail Hada, Munnawar Masoom and Sukhwinder Singh will surely take you to another zone. You might even feel the chants of ‘Meherbaan Meherbaan Meherbaan‘ echoing in your ears long after the song is over. A song worth keeping in our playlist.
6. Barsan Lagi
Another good track by Shail-Pritesh. Another awesome piece of lyrics by A M Turaz. This song is sung by Shail Hada himself and has a definite power to his voice along with occasional softness. However, we do feel this song will be forgotten soon due to lack of connecting with the audience. We expect it to be a great factor in the narrative. Let’s wait and watch the movie. Till then, it is in our playlist.
7. Allah Hu Allah
Now this song is awesome. Hats Off to Tanishk Bagchi for this track. There is no section of music lovers which would not like this song. The sufi feel of the song is mixed perfectly with the constantly changing time signatures of this song which give an uneasy feel, possibly amplifying the effect of this song. The lyrics by Late Haider Najmi have the mettle but are completely overridden by the Tanishk Bagchi magic. Shashaa Tirupati, Altamash and Rabbani Mustafa Khan are decent. This track is here to stay for long in our playlist.
8. Mera Junoon
…Dar Dar Phire
Saj Dhaj Ke Mera Junoon
Tu Na Mile…
This excerpt from the song’s hook is enough the portray the power of its lyrics. The music by Shail-Pritesh adds the trance to the song. However, we felt the song loses its feel in between a few times. But the hook of this song brings back the feel. Shail Hada has done an awesome task on the vocals. We won’t have this song in our playlist possibly, But we will add this hook to our Whatsapp’s status for sure. It is really good.
This lullaby has the maximum impact when listened with eyes closed. Sandeep Singh’s lyrics and Shashi-Shivamm’s awesome melodious music suits the song. Also, Arijit Singh‘s melodious voice just adds the pinch of perfect salt to the song. Definitely have it in your playlist and listen to it at night.
10. Sarbjit Theme
We had already praised the theme song in the trailer review of this movie. And we stick to it. Shail-Pritesh have created possibly one of the best theme music of this year.
Listen to the songs of this movie right here.
The music of Sarbjit carries a lot of good tracks. Even after having few mediocre tracks, the over 40-minute music album ends up on an above par mark on the satisfaction scale that one can expect. Most of the songs here are worth keeping in the playlist.
Our favorites : Allah Hu Allah, Rabba, Salamat, and Meherbaan.
