Tamasha Music Review:
Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika Padukone starring Tamasha music album was undoubtedly the most awaited album of 2015. The music has been composed by legendary A.R. Rahman while the lyrics have been written by Irshad Kamil.
The complete album was released today. It has 7 original songs, one remix and one instrumental. Let’s move on to Tamasha music review to find out if it lives up to the expectations.
Matargashti – Tamasha Music Review
Singer – Mohit Chauhan
Matargashti was released some days back and is already topping the music charts. It is a fun filled song having cool rhythm and peppy lyrics. There is sort of freshness in the music which makes it a winner. (4.5/5)
Heer To Badi Sad Hai – Tamasha Music Review
Singer – Mika Singh
It is the first time that Mika Singh has sung for A.R Rahman. The song has been composed brilliantly in Hindustani flavour. The lyrics are very well written. It will remind you of Katiya Karoon form Rockstar also composed by A.R. Rahman. (4/5)
Tum Saath Ho – Tamasha Music Review
Singers – Alka Yagnik, Arijit Singh
The album takes a 360 degree turn with Tum Saath Ho. Alika’s sweet voice will instantly remind you of 90’s. But the clever music arrangements has connected it to modern time. Arijit Singh does a good job but his voice could not match to Alka’s. Overall it is a soulful track which will grow with time. (4/5)
Wat Wat Wat – Tamasha Music Review
Singers: Arijit Singh, Sashwat Singh
Wat Wat is a fun party number having mesmerizing loops and gripping rhythm section. Arijit Singh who usually is known for soulful renditions moves out of his comfort zone and renders this fast paced number. However, the native Punjabi flavor is brought to life by Sashwat Singh through his fearless vocals. (3.5/5)
Chali Kahani – Tamasha Music Review
Singers: Haricharan, Haripriya, Sukhwinder Singh
Chali Kahani is very refreshing and a beautiful melody. The song kick starts as a stunner with Sukhwinder’s powerful vocals and amazing symphony which attempts an amazing duel with Hindustani Classical arrangements and western string section. It might be used in one of the plays during the movie. (4/5)
Safarnama – Tamasha Music Review
Singers: Lucky Ali
Imtiaz Ali has always obsession with travelling in his movies. This is certainly one of the best road songs. Lucky Ali’s melodious voice will instantly catch your attention. The lyrics by Irshad are very thought provoking. (4/5)
Wat Wat Wat (Vegenance Mix)
Singers: Arijit Singh, Sashwat Singh
The remix of Wat Wat Wat has some more riffs, alert loops and peppy loops. It is a decent effort for a remix. (3/5)
Tu Koi Aur Hai – Tamasha Music Review
Singers: Alma Ferovic, AR Rahman, Arjun Chandy
The last but not the least, Tu Koi Aur Hai is a soulful track. Though we expect the song to pick up after a slow pace but it still steals the heart largely because of A.R. Raham’s dreamy voice. The music near the ending is so adorable. (3.5/5)
Tamasha Music Review: Verdict
Overall Tamasha is another winner for Imtiaz and A.R Rahman after Rockstar and Highway. Some songs will instantly catch your attention while others are slow poison. The special mention will be for Irshad Kamil’s brilliant lyrics.
While most of the music composers copy the music and tend to compose on the same tune and beat. There is always freshness in the music of A.R Rahman. That’s why his songs always take some time to grow and Tamasha is not a different story. This is undoubtedly the best album of 2015.
Our Picks: Matargashti, Heer Toh Badi Sad Hai, Tum Saath Ho, Chali Kahani, Safarnama
