The song begins with a radio remix effect,gets rocking in and comes to the point where Rahman proves he is still the King when it comes to guitars.Electrifying usage of the instrument really-in different ways each being exceptional .The rendition of Suzanne adds the spice needed to make the song an instant pick of the album.
It begins with Sonu nigam s hum, followed by a tune akin to airtel/idea adJ but any similarity ends there.With a constant soothing loop running in the background,the song flows non-chalantly.One for melody lovers.
This song wonderfully rendered by Karthik is full of vigor,jazz and razzmattaz.There is distinct usage of drums, sax that makes it very interesting.The sudden sax interlude involving the humming of Guzarish is a pleasant surprise.The song,somehow reminds me of Main aisa kyun hoon(Lakshya).
This one sung by Benny dayal and Shreya is a typical Rahman melody.With beats that donot distract,tune that is serene.Hard to miss a semblance to Yedho yedho onru from E20U18.This song will get into Rahman s repertoire that can spoil your sleep when you are alone.
Kaise Mujhe (Instrumental)
A fitting instrumental version to the original song combined with apt chorus humming.The flute interlude in the middle is a special addition.The way the song allows one s mind to meander between excitement and tranquility shows the Rahman stamp in it.
To me this is the laddoo in the album.A laddoo that I am not so impressed with.There s an exception-The ‘yaar,yaar’ part remains in mind even after the song ends.Some ilayaraja touch there.And some Harris jayaraj touch when guys utter ‘mazari mazara zimbabwe!’Shreya somehow holds this song together.
To sum it up, Ghajni will appeal to the youth for its vibrance,to the melody seekers and any Rahman fan would feel it a prized possession.Rahman continues his rich form that he got into,maybe,when he composed for Roja!Hail the maestro.
