Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt starrer ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania‘ has garnered an immense buzz since its trailer release and its songs have also upped the ante in youth. This is a love story directed by Shashank Khaitan and the film is releasing on 10th March, 2017.
Following is our Music Review of ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’:
Aashiq Surrender Hua
Normally, songs like these with a duet work really well but ‘Aashiq Surrender Hua’ disappoints. The beats are linear and music doesn’t boasts of any brilliance. The tone is quite overly done in Bollywood already. Amaal Mallik and Shreya Ghoshal’s singing chemistry doesn’t create any spark.
Roke Na Ruke Naina
Finally, Arijit Singh comes to the rescue. Its ironic that ‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ is an entertainment oriented album but it’s the melodious song that outperforms the others. ‘Roke Na Ruke Naina’ is expressive of the pain and heartbreak and Arijit singh sings it smoothly. The music is calm and stabilizes the track. Good thing is that the composer Amaal Mallik didn’t try many things, keeping it simple did the trick for the song.
Humsafar is a weak composing by Akhil Sachdeva and the song never reaches the threshold to even give it a decent try. Music is generic and lacks the genuine effort to make it a powerful emotional track. Akhil Sachdeva’s voice has a crux but the lyrics and background music don’t help. This song could have given a maturity to the album but it fails.
This is a complete entertainer and perfect for the title track. Badri Ki Dulhania has amazing lyrics and rapping and that ‘Sarararara’ effect is mind blowing. The music by Tanishk Bagchi is highly accelerating and makes you groove to the desi beats. Availing multiple artists such as Dev Negi, Neha Kakkar, Monali Thakur and Ikka gave the song an apt party environment. Best song of the album.
Why ruin a great old song by remaking it and destroying its essence? Madhuri Dixit & Sanjay Dutt’s heavily popular song from ‘Thanedaar’ was a gem of 90’s. ‘Tamma Tamma Again’ is just a fill in the blanks with some stale irritating rapping by Badshah and some modern modifying beats to give it a dismal spin off. There is nothing exciting and new in the song that will make you appreciate the remake. It’s an avoidable track.
‘Badrinath Ki Dulhania’ seems like a haphazardly done average album. It doesn’t qualify as an entertainment filled nor a soulful one. Its songs and music lack the core romantic energy. They are one time listen and nothing more.
