TALAASH (Music)

Aamir Khan’s movies were never known for some good music except some of them from 90’s. Today Bollywood is in such a situation that a film works even if there are no songs in the film. Since the promos of Talaash came no one cared for the music of the film. The music director of the film is couple of films old. His music for his previous film Delhi Belly was loved by one and all and not to forget all the trackd of popular TV show Satyamev Jayate were also loved by one and all. Since Ram is new in Bollywood there were not much expectations from him as far as Talaash was concerned but thinking about his earlier work one can expect a lot from such man.

The very first song from the album is Muskaanein Jhoothi Hai. The vocal of Suman Sridhar are just perfect for this song. With simple beats of simple instruments and giving the cabaret feel the song is just good to hear and you just start tapping your feet then and there. The song mainly features Kareena Kapoor along with Aamir Khan and Rani Mukherji. The visuals of the song are also very nice. One of the best songs of the album.

Jee Le Zara is a soft happy sad romantic number sung by Vishal Dadlaani. The song is sung very well and again Ram has done a good job by keeping the beats very simple. The pace of the song is slow but that will never bother the listener. Once you start listening the song you just get into the mood of the song and enjoy the song.

Jiya Lage Naa is a duet sung by Sona Mohapatra and Ravindra Upadhyay. The song starts very slowly giving a classical feel but within no time the pace of the song goes up and sets the mood of the album. Very different song, gives you the feel of old tune of Hindi song yet when you listen the song you feel as if it’s a brand new song. Again one of the best song from the album.

Hona Hai Kya sung by Ram Sampath makes you feel ordinary as far as this album is concerned the song goes with the feel of the album but at the end nothing new in the song. The song has a normal feel of suspense or thrill. The tune of the song is quite ordinary and it goes up and down throughout the song especially when the words ”hona hai kya” cum the song takes a altogether different mode.

The last song of the album is Laakh Duniya Kahe again sung by Ram Sampath. The song starts with a very slow pace and keeps it pace slow throughout the song. Again an ordinary song as far as Ram is concerned one has heard this type of song’s from him earlier also. The beats of the songs are simple and the piano gives a different feel to the song.

Overall the music of Talaash live up to one’s expectation. The album has some good numbers. This deserves to be in your collection if you are a Bollywood music fan. It’s something new and feel good. The album also gives little idea about what the film may be. Do listen this once for a good attempt by Ram Sampath.

My Favourites: Muskaanein Jhoothi Hai, Jiya Lage Naa.

My Verdict:3/5
