Bajirao Mastani Music Review
One of the most awaited movies of Bollywood this year till now named “Bajirao Mastani” is all set to bang the box office next Friday on 18th December 2015. As we do not need to tell much about the movie because in our previous articles we have already updated our viewers regarding the pre release craze of audience for Bajirao Mastani we will be focusing no the music of film now. We have seen that viewers are extremely excited to watch this movie; they have loved the trailer, first look, characters and everything about the film. But one thing that every person loves about the film much is – Music. Movie is sort of film which has everything in it- superb star cast, sweltering chemistry, unique story, great action dose, and most favorite of audience is its music.
Nowadays everywhere you can hear the songs of this film and also people singing the songs. Music has already hit the chartbusters very first day it got released. The film narrates the story of the Maratha warrior Peshwa (Prime Minister) Bajirao I of the Maratha Empire and his second wife Mastani. Ranveer Singh and Deepika Padukone portray the titular protagonists, and Priyanka Chopra plays Bajirao’s first wife Kashibai.
First Song Deewani Mastani:- The opening song of the album is ‘Deewani Mastani‘. There is a unique blend of Maharashtrian as well as Qawalli touch to it. It starts with Ganesh Chandanshive’s Marathi lines and further transcends into Shreya Ghoshal’s beautiful ballad on love. The song’s lyrics are all about Mastani who has fallen deeply in love and the music does convey it.The song is not just a treat to watch, but to hear it too!
Second Song Pinga:- Arguably the best tribute to his own composition Dola Re from Devdas, SLB gives Pinga with the proverbial Marathi tadka. Kashibai welcomes the warrior empress Mastani in a spectacular night of dance and celebration. Shreya Ghoshal and Vaishali Made’s vocals do justisce to this beautiful number choreographed by Remo D’souza. Musically spaeking, this track captures the Marathi folk song and folklore beautifully as SLB gives a peek into the Peshwa era.
Third Song Aayat:- I completely love songs with a classical layering to it and especially with Arijit Singh’s voice to them. Aayat starts off slow and soon picks up into a beautiful classical rendition. It is more like a semi-classical Ghazal. In between, the song also has Qawalli portions which are blended flawlessly. This is one of the most soothing tracks from the album.
Fourth Song Malhari:- Malhari is a complete mismatch in the album. The song hardly seems like it comes from the era that the movie is set in. Portrayed to be more like a victory song for the Peshwas, the song is high-pitched and loud. Vishal Dadlani croons this celebratory track. What is another problem with the song is the fact that the lyrics too are quite controversial. We wonder if the upper-caste Peshwas would use a language with words such as ‘Vaat Lavli’.
Fifth Song Albela Sajan:- Well SLB’s love for Ustad Khan and his music was quite apparent after he us that classic track in Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam with the same title. And now we have Albela Sajan once again gives it a different twist. This number has chorus of singers such as Shashi Suman, Kunal Pandit, Prithvi Gandharva, Kanika Joshi, Geetikka Manjrekar and Rashi Ragga . The music is impressive as the prominent Sitar note create an ambience perfect for love and longing.
Sixth Song Pinga:- One of the most controversial songs, Pinga received a lot of flak after it’s release. The song which was supposed to be similar to Dola Re from Devdas with Priyanka and Deepika pulling off a dance-off, did not work much. Even though Bhansali has tried his best to come up with a Marathi folk song, he seemed terribly confused as he mixed up two separate forms together. Shreya Ghoshal and Vaishali Made have sung this song.
Movie has got so many good tracks in it album that audience is confused what song to like or rate more. Whether it’s Ab Tohe Jane Na Doongi, Gajanana, Fitoori & Mohe Rang Do Laal whose video got released yesterday, all have been so much loved by the audience that there is so much demand for Bajirao Mastani songs This music album is a delectable mix of different songs from different genres. It would be only pertinent to add that the songs are visually more impressive.
