RAM-LEELA (Music)

Sanjay Leela Bhansali (SLB) is always known for larger than life things in movies be it set or actors or music. Same is the case with Ram-leela music. It is an out and out SLB type music. The music takes you altogether in different world, with all the use of instruments like tabla, dhol, nagada, manjira, veena, sitar, been etc. Almost all the songs in the album have use of these instruments in them. The songs are more of traditional and less of modern yet very much contemporary. SLB wins big this time with the music of this film. While listening songs you either feel as if you are in SLB’s created world, those huge sets with so many people or your curiosity about the film increases with each song. You start thinking how this must have been pictured, who will be there in the song and all that.

Lahu Muh Lag Gaya” and “Poore Chand” sung by Sahil Hada stick to the SLB genre music. Poore Chand somewhat reminds you Wo Chand Jaisi Ladki from Devdas. Sahil has done a fabulous job with this one. Lahu Muh Lag Gaya makes you feel like swinging and dancing. After singing songs like Saawariya this guy has a long way to go in the industry and has the potential in him to make it big some day.

Aditya Narayan has definitely got that spark in him. He has two songs in the album “Tattad Tattad” and “Ishqyaun Dishqyaun“. Both of them make you feel like dancing. Ranveer’s dance in Tattad Tattad will make the girls go crazy. Even the lyrics and tune of the song is ordinary it do create a good impact when you hear it. Ishqyaun Dishqyaun is a flirtatious song and the lyrics match with the tagline of the film “goliyo ki rasleela” and talks about guns, and bullets and bombs.

Singing sensation Shreya Ghoshal has one of the best song from the album. “Nagada Sang Dhol” is a perfect garba song and garba lovers cant resist from dancing once the song is on. Shreya’s beautiful voice and her energy takes this song to an all together different level. Her next song in the album “Dhoop” is a a short and sweet song. In this song she has beautifully and strongly described her feeling after falling in love. Both the tracks by Shreya Ghoshal are awesome.

Ang Laga De” sung by Aditi Paul is again expressing girl’s feeling expecting something. Aditi Paul has nicely sung this song and makes you fell the desire of that particular girl. “Mor Bani Thanghat Kar” is a typical traditional folk song and nothing much to offer apart form expoing Gujarati culture and it’s music. “Laal Ishq” sung by Arijit Singh proves his versatility with this song. No doubt this a love song but the way Arijit has sung this song makes it even more beautiful. This one surpasses his previous beautiful track Phir Le Aaya Dil from Barfi. If Arijit keeps on giving such good songs no-one can stop him from being the next singing sensation.

The title track of the film “Ram Chahe Leela” comes as a complete surprise. This one sung by Bhoomi Trivedi will blow off your minds for a simple reason that SLB film is having such song. The song has all western instruments. This song makes you scratch your head make you imagine the visuals of this song. The best song in the entire album.

Overall the music of Ram-leela is soulful soothing and melodious. This album has something or the other to offer to everyone. It is a mixture of songs of all genre, be it romantic or dance number or traditional or so called rock song. The music has increased the expectations for the film and music is surely going to be one of the factor to pull audience to cinema halls.You should definitely add this album to your collection.
