Shah Rukh Khan and Kajol are back on the screen after five years with the film Dilwale which is directed by Rohit Shetty. The director’s last outing with SRK was Chennai Express which boasted of some really good songs. And now, after two years, the duo has collaborated for Dilwale which releases on 18th Dec. Let’s see what Dilwale offers when it comes to music – will it have an interesting music album like CE, or does it fizzle.
We can never forget the track Suraj Hua Maddham from Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham. It is surely one of the best romantic tracks composed till date in Bollywood. Pritam tries to recreate the same magic with Gerua. Well, there’s no similarity between Suraj Hua Maddham and Gerua, but the flavour of the tracks are same. Gerua is a sweet romantic number which is wonderfully sung by Arijit Singh and Antara Mitra. The tune of the hook phrase is a bit similar to the track Ishq Hua from Aaja Nachle. Don’t believe us? Listen to the song from the Madhuri starrer, and decide for yourself. Anyway, Gerua is a nice number and impresses us.
After a romantic start the next song in the album is Manma Emotion. It is one of the most irritating songs of current times. It looks like Pritam wanted to make a song to attract the youth, but the beats of this foot-tapping number is boring and after a few minutes into the track, you will press the next button. Amit Mishra, Anushka Manchanda and Antara Mitra’s vocals fail to save the song.
It’s once again time to go into the romantic mood with the next track Janam Janam. It is an amazing number with a subtle music and heart-warming lyrics. This one is very impressive and will make way into your playlist. It’s a perfect number to have a romantic dance with your loved one. Arijit Singh and Antara Mitra’s vocals in the track are extremely good. They have sung the track from the heart. For Janam Janam, Pritam and Amitabh Bhattacharya deserve applause.
After such an impressive number our expectations are now quite high for the upcoming tracks.
So, moving on we have the track Tukur Tukur. This is an entertaining number with funky beats that will force you to get up and dance. The Goan tune and the quirky lyrics will win your heart. This is surely the most enjoyable track of the album. Arijit Singh has lent his voice to this song and is damn impressive in this non-romantic number as well.
After impressing us with back-to-back tracks, the music album falls flat with the track Daayre, a boring romantic number which will test your patience. It is an irritating number which will bore you to no limits. Arijit Singh’s voice is also quite average in the track. It looks like Pritam was too lazy to compose one more nice romantic number.
Next in the line is Premika. It is a foot-tapping romantic number, but like Manma Emotion even this one fails to impress us. Once again Pritam tries to add vibrancy to the track, but falls flat on his face. This one will also irritate you totally. The only good thing in the song is Benny Dayal and Kanika Kapoor’s vocals. Kanika has sung it amazingly.
Finally, after torturing us with a few tracks, the album comes to the climax with the track Theme Of Dilwale. It is a faster version of the track Janam Janam and Arijit has only sung the hook phrase in the whole track.
Dilwale Music Review Final Verdict:
Overall, Pritam comes up with a below average music album for Dilwale.
