Patakha Guddi (Female Version)

Singers : Nooran sisters ( Sultana and Jyoti Nooran)

Lyrics : Irshad Kamil

The Nooran sisters carry a state of excitement in the song with a contemporary folk flavour in style. There is this trademark Rahman sound , interspersed in the middle stanza. The song explains about the lively spirit of the female protagonist , played by Alia Bhatt. The main accompaniments include fefe, synth ,bass lines and Tabla.

Maahi Ve

Singer : A.R.Rahman

Lyrics : Irshad Kamil

ARR shines evergreen , just like in his voice-owned songs and this one will surely resonate in the ears of the audience. The violins sway along in a very gentle manner with miniscule female humming. The tune too , is effervescent ,filling your minds with just peace , jus like that.

Kahaan Ho Main

Singer : Jonita Gandhi

Lyrics : Irshad Kamil

A mild taste of Jonita’s voice seems so eclectic and inspite her debut , she takes charge confidently without any thought. The piano and drum

kicks a gentle knock and pushes you slowly into the sea of blues. Excellent song !

Wanna Mash Up

Singers : Lady Kash & Krissy , Suvi Suresh

Lyrics : Lady Kash & Krissy

The electro and dubstep tones get you wired and following it , there is a series of slow rap lines done by the Kash , Krissy with Suvi filling up the hot bowl with melody blocks. This seems to be an OK track , since there is no incorporation of something new.

Sooha

Singers : Zoe Viccaji , Alia Bhatt

Lyrics : Irshad Kamil

Zoe’s voice takes small steps into the song , before making us watch the bhajan hymn unfold. This time , Alia gets into the shoes of a singer , which nobody knows she is and does an incredibly good job as a sweet koel ,making its way into the nature.

Patakha Guddi (Male Version)

Singer : A.R.Rahman

Lyrics : Irshad Kamil

Rahman fairs average in this reprise version and stresses too much on the words , making it quite difficult to understand. The arrangement , however is converted to a lounge chamber set , containing harmonium , dholaks , drums ,electric guitars banging the sides at unexpected times . Overworked tune results in complete rupture. That’s proved !

Implosive Silence

Singer : Jonita Gandhi

Like the name of the song , the voice of the lead singer too , diminishes in and out in the midst of panned beats and fx sounds. Just hear it for the quiet atmosphere and the range of tiny sounds.

Tu Khuja

Singer : Sunidhi Chauhan

Lyrics : Irshad Kamil

Sunidhi sings for ARR after quite long while and this time , a sailing sufiana melody lands on her lap , that is consistent in-terms of the rise and fall in pitches. This could bug you , if you possess the rare music taste.

Heer

Singer : Shweta Pandit

Lyrics : Sant Kabir

Shweta belts out a beautiful melody, that has a blissful setup consisting of violins , flute and santoor. The solo violin in the interludes , gives you lot of reasons to hear this song.

Picks of the album

Pattakha Guddi (Female version) , Maahi ve , Kahaan , Tu Khuja , Sooha , Heer

Bottomline

Post Rockstar , the audience were eyeing on the trio combination of composer A R Rahman, director Imtiaz Ali and lyricist Irshad Kamil. Thus it resulted in the film “Highway”. The album has all the songs with an unconventional beginning, providing it a different dimension and also the Mozart has contributed more than what the people would expect from his baggage. Though the travel would be slow , the roads will connect the listeners better and be surprised for an enhanced impact.

Overall Rating ★★★½☆
