After the success of Phata Poster Nikla Hero
, Shahid Kapoor is back to prove himself yet again with his
upcoming flick Haider
, alongside the Ek Villain
Shraddha Kapoor. Directed by Vishal Bhardwaj, Haider
speculated to be the Bollywood version of William Shakespeare's classical
. Having Gulzar pen down the lyrics for this flick,
the audience is rest assured that its music album will give everything above
the mediocre standard. Before the movie hits the silver screens on 2nd October
2014, BollyCurry exclusively brings to you Haider
The album opens up with "Bismil Bismil" in the
voice of Sufi master, Sukhwinder Singh. The song is shot at the Sun Temple
during a time when it is entirely covered in snow and to add a cherry on top,
the audience gets to witness Shahid Kapoor showing off his dance skills amidst
the snow. The word 'Bismil' is associated with traditional Kashmiri folk dance
and being shot in the heart of Kashmir, this song serves to provide the tanpura
feel together with the rubab
being played in the background.
With Kapoor dancing to its tunes, this number is surely enchanting.
Bhardawaj satisfies all his listeners as he adds a peppy
reprise version to the original "Bismil Bismil" track. Keeping the
theme of Kashimiri as the original track, he only works to add a slight Arabian
classical flavour to it so that it is enjoyed thoroughly.
"Aao Na" by the music rockstar, Vishal Dadlani,
follows the queue next. It depicts Kapoor's rushed and hushed return to Kashmir
after finding out that his father has gone missing. The entire sequence shows a
tensed Kapoor deep in thoughts, while Dadlani takes a back seat as this upbeat
and fast paced number is done to the highest of notches. It's a win - win
situation for Dadlani since the avatar of a rockstar suits his voice well and
hence, when he does it, he does it good.
From folk and rock, the music now moves a step further,
right into jazz. Mastermind Arijit Singh lends his vocals for "Khul Kabhi
Toh", an entirely romantic number. Throughout the showdown some beautiful
love scenes are shot to showcase the intense love and chemistry between the two
Kapoors. The slow and soothing melody catches the attention of its audience
within seconds of listening and it leaves a lasting impression.
"Gulon Mein Rang Bhare" gives a swift end to the
album. Once again committed with the voice of Arijit Singh, this track gives a
fresh feel to the older version of Faiz Ahmed Faiz's song with the same name.
Singh goes a notch higher to satisfy his listeners and you are sure to enjoy
this one, but only if you have not listened to the original classic version.
Though a rather short one,
Haider's album gives a soothing feel. They say music always plays a
vital role in the success of a movie, and Vishal Bhardawaj has definitely hit
the right spot as we can witness his soundtrack climb up the music charts like
rapid fire. BollyCurry wishes Shahid Kapoor, Shraddha Kapoor and the entire
cast and crew of
Haider best of luck for its upcoming release. Don't
forget to give a listen to the album and give us a briefing on your take!
