Sanam Re Music Review

Movie: Sanam Re

Cast: Pulkit Samrat,Yami Gautam,Urvashi Rautela

Director: Divya Khosla Kumar

Music director: Mithoon,Jeet Ganguly,Amaal Malik,Epic Bhangra



1.Sanam Re-Arijit Singh,Anirudh Bhola

When the very first song in an album strikes your heart with its melodious dimension, you can really expect the rest of the soundtrack to be exceptionally good. Sanam Re puts you in the mood for a mushy romance with your loved one on a lovey-dovey winter evening. Arijit Singh's voice flows like honey and the backing vocals by Anirudh Bhola adds beauty to the number. The track has excellent instrumentation like the tabla beats and hard rock guitar section in the second interlude. Beautifully Mithoon-ish all the way! Definite chartbuster!

2.Gazab Ka Hai Ye Din-Arijit Singh

Amaal Malik dons the role of composer in this number. Right after a scintillating melody, this track has a sunny shade to it with its fun-filled tune pleasing to the ears. Arijit Singh's carefree singing makes the number even more enjoyable. The racy rhythm and the ebullient guitar strums paint a colorful mood to the entire song. A perfect listen for a long drive on a highway!

3.Hua Hain Aaj Pehli Baar-Amaal Malik,Armaan Malik,Palak Muchhal

Beginning with a lively strings section, this melodious number by Amaal Malik is instantly addictive from the very first listen. The steady rhythm pattern of the song gives a deja-vu of previous romantic duets in Bollywood, especially songs in the early 2000s. Amaal Malik ropes in his brother Armaan Malik to croon this number and he does complete justice to the tune. Palak Muchhal's modulated singing is refreshing to listen. Simple yet elegant!

4.Humne Pee Rakhi Hai-Jaz Dhami,Neha Kakkar,Ikka Singh

When the album is riding high on soul-stirring melodies, here comes a funky party number composed by Epic Bhangra. The song has all the elements of an outright chartbuster. Be it the repetitive loops, high voltage techno beats or the sultry vocals of Jaz Dhami, Neha Kakkar and Ikka Singh, this track is sure to pull people to the dance floor. 

5.Kya Tujhe Ab Ye Dil Bataye-Falak Shabir

Amaal Malik gets to compose yet another heartrending melody. Lyrics by Manoj Muntashir are top class here. The entire song has an old-school melody feel to it with the orchestration and the trance-like beats resembling songs from a bygone era. Falak Shabir's mellowed rendition makes the number a classic in all terms. An evergreen soft rock melody!

6.Tere Liye-Mithoon,Ankit Tiwari

Mithoon pairs up with composer-singer Ankit Tiwari for this song. This number is a downright pathos that would definitely suit the lovelorn guys out there. The slow pace of the number is the only drawback here. Otherwise Mithoon composes a soulful tune and spices it up with mellowed violins and of course Ankit Tiwari's vocals. He too croons certain lines which deserve an applause.

7.Tum Bin-Shreya Ghoshal

Tum Bin Jiya Jaaye Kaise from Tum Bin by Nikhil-Vinay gets a rehash in this album. This version is composed by Jeet Ganguly who teams up with the evergreen Shreya Ghoshal whose honey-dipping voice makes the number oh-so mushy. Being a male vocals dominated album, this song provides a sense of relief to the listeners. Shreya's gamakas provide a slight classical touch to the tune. Kudos to Jeet Ganguly for a ghazal gem!

8.Chhote Chhote Tamashe-Shaan

The soundtrack arrives to a grand finale with this fun-filled number. Jeet Ganguly takes you on a retro tour with this 60s-like song. Shaan's exuberant vocals peps up the playfulness of the track. Jeet Ganguly indulges some violins in the interlude which increases the happy mood of the song. If you want to listen to an upbeat number to spruce up your dull mood, then go for this one!

Verdict:

Though Sanam Re is replete with heartwarming melodies, it also has a party track and a couple of fun-filled numbers to cater to every mood of yours. The year 2016 gets yet another wonderful soundtrack!
