Aamir Khan’s flicks are one of the most anticipated movies in Bollywood. He often lets down his fans. With Aamir Khan’s name attached to any flick, there’s a feeling of good quality content along with it. Aamir is back with his latest movie titled Ghajini which is also an all action film. Ghajini has been directed by A.R Murugadoss and the music has been composed by A.R Rahman. The lyrics have been penned down by Prasoon Joshi.
A.R Rahman had terribly failed to deliver good music for Yuvvraaj. No wonder the film bombed at the box office. With Ghajini everyone is excited and expecting a lot from Mr. Rahman. Does he deliver? Is the music up to the mark? Well let’s find out!
Kaise Mujhe (Instrumental)
I plug in my earphones, crossing my fingers and hoping for the best. The soundtrack begins with Guzarish. The track has been sung by Sonu Nigam and Javed Ali. A soft typical romantic number and trademark Prasoon Joshi lyrics. The song begins really well. The music isn’t anything special. Somewhere in the middle it fades away. The song goes worthless. Aye Bachchu, sung by Suzanne, is the next track. The music seems decent. The lyrics are however a let down here. The next track Kaise Mujhe features Banny Dayal and Shreya Goshal. Almost half way across the soundtrack and I am already wondering what is wrong with A.R Rahman?! Where is that special touch he had? Has he lost it? Behka is a decent attempt on saving the soundtrack from drowning. Unfortunately it doesn’t work. Latoo by Shreya Goshal generates a B Grade soundtrack feel. Rahman officially needs to take a break. May be he’s just doing too much work these days.
Yes the soundtrack is a total waste of time no doubt. It’s sad to say Rahman has fallen to the standards of Anu Malik type of music composers in Bollywood.
