Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor are back together with Imtiaz Ali’s Tamasha. Both the actors were last seen together in Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani which was a blockbuster at the box-office. Imtiaz Ali’s films have always had some great music. Songs of Jab We Met, Love Aaj Kal, Rockstar and Highway are still the favourites of many. So, we have a lot of expectations from the music of Tamasha as music maestro AR Rahman is the one who has composed it.
Are you in a party mood? Want to forget everything and do some masti? Then here’s the perfect song for you. The first song in the album, Matargashti, is all about having fun and going tiaon tiaon. The energetic beats with the Rahman element, plus Irshad Kamil’s funky lyrics ensure the album kick-starts wonderfully. Mohit Chauhan does justice to the track with his voice.
Whenever we are sad we prefer listening to emotional numbers. But, Imtiaz Ali gives us an option to feel good with the track Heer Toh Badi Sad Hai. We haven’t ever heard such a happy sad track with full-on desi beats. Hats off to Irshad Kamil for coming up with such quirky lyrics! Mika Singh and Nakash Aziz’s voices are very good in the track. You will surely keep this track on loop as it’s totally entertaining.
And now, after a jovial sad number, the makers get in an actual sad number titled Agar Tum Saath Ho. Irrespective of whether you’ve ever had a heartbreak or not, this is one song that you’ll fall in love with. Touching lyrics, soulful music and Alka Yagnik’s mind-blowing voice will make you feel the pain. Arijit Singh’s voice, too, is poignant in the song. Irshad Kamil deserves all the awards for writing the lyrics of the track. I am in love with the line ‘Tum saath ho ya na ho kya fark hai, Bedard thi zindagi bedard hai.’
The first three songs were thoroughly entertaining. But, the next track in the album Wat Wat Wat is absolutely horrible. The music is irritating and the lyrics don’t impress us. Rahman tried to come up with a track that appeals to the masses, but unfortunately he fails miserably. Arijit Singh and Shashwat Singh’s voices fail to save the track.
After the speed breaker which spoiled our mood, once again the album picks up with Chali Kahani. The track has fantastic music and Rahman wonderfully handles the tunes. We totally loved the contemporary beats of the song. The lyrics explain some love stories like Mughal-E-Azam, Soni-Mahiwal, etc. Sukhwinder Singh, Haricharan and Haripriya’s vocals are superb in the song.
The next track brings back a voice which we haven’t heard since a long time. We are talking about Lucky Ali who has sung the track Safarnama in Tamasha. The song offers nothing amazing when it comes to music. It’s a sweet romantic number with soulful beats. But, it’s Lucky Ali’s voice that makes us nostalgic and takes us to those days when the singer’s music albums would top the charts.
After the soulful number, the next track Parade De La Bastille is an instrumental which is a mixture of the tracks and also has some music with French touch.
And finally the album ends with the song Tu Koi Aur Hai. It’s a soulful number which fantastically explains the concept of the film. Though the music is simple and sweet, Rahman, Alma Ferovic and Arjun Chandy’s voices shine in the song.
Tamasha Music Review Final Verdict:
Overall, if we skip one or two songs then the music album of Tamasha is undoubtedly fantastic.
