Music Review: Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi
Shahrukh Khan and Aditya Chopra come together after 7 long years and the expectations are sky high. Music has always been an integral part of any SRK – Yash Raj movie, so does Rab Ne Banadi Jodi’s music recreate the magic of DDLJ and Mohabbatein?
Read the following exclusive BollyNewz review to know.
Music by Saleem-Sulaiman | Written and Directed by Aditya Chopra | Produced by Yash Raj Movies
Cast: Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma
Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai (Roop Kumar Rathod)- The first song in a Shah Rukh Khan and Yash Chopra project has never been short of a classic. Whether it was Tujhe Dekha To Yeh Jaana (DDLJ), Humko Humise (Mohabbatein), Tere Liye (Veer Zaara) or Jaadu Teri Nazar (Darr), everytime this duo has hit the jackpot.
Tujhe Mein Rab Dikhta Hai does not live up to those mammoth expectations but it doesn’t disappoint either. Basically what we get is not the evergreen song we were hoping for, but we do get one of the better love songs of the year. Although I wish this were a duet and not a solo by Roop Kumar Rathod. It would have sounded very nice in a female’s voice.
Musically the song is really nice but lyrically it is a bit of a disappointment.
Tujh Mein Rab Dikhta Hai part 2 (Shreya Ghosal) - This one is too short to make any impact. Rating: NA
Dance Pe Chance (Sunidhi Chauhan & Labh Janjua) – Rhyming the words dance and chance or nothing new as they were already used in the song Dil Dance Maare from Tashan. Although this is a situational song, the lyrics and music are great. Can any song sung by Labh Janjua go wrong? This guy has fast become one of my favorite singers and in this song too, his singing is the highlight. This track will be interesting to see on screen as it will be the first time his voice has been picturized on SRK! Rating:
Pir Milenge Chalte Chalte (Sonu Nigam) – This track seems like a medley of many old songs into one song but with a twist. I have never been a huge fan of medleys so this one doesn’t appeal to me all that much. Although the song sounds really nice at the hum hain raahi pyaar ke…pir milenge chalte chalte parts – we are reminded who the best singer in India is! Rating:
Haule Haule (Sukhwinder Singh) – This is the song thats been playing in the trailers for a week or so…and needless to say its a definite hit. Sukhwinder Singh’s rendition of the song, however, could have been better!Rating:
Unfortunately there are only four songs in the album.
Final Verdict: Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi is a pretty good album that will become even more popular after the songs are seen on screen….but from the album alone, you get the feeling that something is missing!
