“Barfi !” has been hitting the headlines of late thanks to out-of-the box promos & Ranbir’s on screen comeback after the highly successful “Rockstar”. Ranbir has always had this tendency to have highly acclaimed soundtracks in all his films. Be it ARR going all-out in Rockstar or Vishal-Shekar hitting the right notes in Anjaana Anjaani,Bachna Ae Haseeno or the massively under-rated Rocket Singh(Salim-Sulaiman). Pritam who is going places kudos to Cocktail & Agent Vinod joins his usual collaborator Anurag Basu(Remember Ya Ali,Tuhi Mere Shab Hai..?). Many wondered whether Pritam could deliver experimental music ? Well, the answer is “BARFI !”
Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahaani is an engaging album. It has refreshing songs of various genres. The album has some chart toppers. Pritam has done terrific with this one. Irshad Kamil has been unconventional and it has actually paid off. It is a fun filled album with an good collection of songs. Enjoy the album and you will sure have some of the songs in your favorite list!
This album is an epic creation. It has everything from Progressive rock to soft rock to hard rock to qawwalis, romantic numbers, folk music, haunting songs, Arabic, Spanish music. This album is a cornucopia of several musical styles and influences. Mohit Chauhan deserves special mention.This album is a celebration of Rahman’s genius. Take a bow Sir.
