NEW SONG: Saaiyaan from Kareena's Heroine delights
Madhur Bhandarkar hasn't really needed strong music for his films, for he compensates for everything that his movie lacks in his plot, direction and acting.
For his movie Fashion (2008), there were two very strong songs in the film that eventually came to become big musical hits- Kuch Khaas Hai and Mar Jaawan.
This time around, it seems that Madhur Bhandarkar had to focus on music, given that his upcoming movie, Heroine, is about an Indian film industry or Bollywood actress, and Bollywood is defined by its songs.
And he has focussed pretty well.
Heroine's first song Halkat Jawani is already creating waves with its catchy tune and racy picturisation.
With the Halkat fever still continuing, a new song from Heroine, Saaiyaan has been released and is steadily gripping us with effortless singing, complimentary music and sad lyrics.
The song is beautifully sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, in a melancholic and mighty way in which only Rahat can render a tune.
It is a sad song, and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan has done full justice to the myriad emotions the protagonist or the Heroine Kareena Kapoor is undergoing.
Rahat has given us a variety in this song- with altering his voice to suit the hopelessness and heartbreak in the song.
Complete with difficult notes sung effortlessly by the talented singer, this song will become the anthem of broken hearts.
The music is by the duo Salim-Sulaiman and they have done justice to the grandiose expectations from the music of Heroine.
Use of multiple instruments, perfectly blended with a good voice and ryhtmic lyrics work well for the listener. The chorus of the song is lightly reminiscent of the movie Dor's Ye Haunsla, but in a good way.
The lyrics penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, are simple and effective. He has given words to the complex feelings of being lost, and finally surrendering yourself to destiny, or a higher power.
Some of the phrases are common , like dil sheeshe ka toota aashiyaan re. But then he immediately gives us, ab kis disha jaoon, kit mai basera paaun, tu jo thaame sambhal jaoon and surprises us with the simplicity and meaning of his words.
The video of the song is its another plus point. The song, in a matter of about two minutes, conveys the emotional journey of Kareena, or the Heroine.
She is shown falling in love with Arjun Rampal, then ignored by him and again getting involved with Randeep Hooda. She has portrayed the turmoil of the loss of love extremely well.
