London Dreams : Music Review


It took so much time to grow on me. Seriously. It has never happened to me for Shankar-Ehsan-Loy ‘s compositions. Though mad mad Mann ko Ati Bhavey became my favorite since the first promo. Other songs made me re-listen to it before I could believe that these are ‘actually’ SEL compositions. 🙂 Some days back, Barson Yaaron was stuck in mind with its ‘Hanuman Chalisa’ bit. Also the bit ‘…duniya teri mehmaan hai’ is just so addictive.

Next addiction is Tapkey Masti – with fabulous lyrics by Prasoon Joshi, the track is so fun. And the current line stuck with me is ‘Aa zamaane aa….Aazmaane aa…‘ from Khaanabadosh. A sound similar to RDB’s Paathshala, still the track stands on its own. While Yaari Bina reminds me of ‘yaari hai imaan’ – I would love to see how it shapes up on screen. Shola Shola reminds of ‘disco’ beats.

As ‘SEL’ is giving so much inspirational tracks throughout this year, here comes another Khwab Jo this time around with Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Shankar gets me goosebumps with his trademark classical raagas. Our college Movie Club [that is me! :D] showed it in Auditorium last weekend, but then the print sucked! So, I just can’t wait to see this one song on screen. Just because of last two minutes of the track. It sounds really awesome.

I was expecting something identical with Rock On soundtrack. Cause the storyline seems similar. But for this one, the desi fusion has worked quite in fun way. Making it enjoyable.

My Rating : 4 / 5 stars

My Picks : Khwab Jo, Mann Ko Ati Bhavey, Khanabadosh, Tapkey Masti, Barson Yaaron [oh, almost all :P]
