Mausam


MausamThe expectation from the album of ‘Mausam’ is sky high.  Firstly, versatile actor Pankaj Kapoor debuts as a director with ‘Mausam’ and he would not leave any stone unturned to make the music of Mausam a musical epitome. Secondly, as we all know Shahid Kapoor is associated with chartbuster music that creates musical bonanza. The film means a lot to Sonam Kapoor and to provide justice to the chemistry of first time paired, Shahid and Sonam it is important that music should be ear-soothing and touchy.

Pankaj Kapoor has put the mammoth task of helming the music of Mausam to ace music composer of the present day, Pritam. Irshad Kamil has penned the lyrics of ‘Mausam’.  The album has altogether six songs and each one different in composition.

The album opens with 'Rabba Mein Toh Mar Gaya Oye' by Shahid Mallya. The song is a treat to the ear, beautifully sung by the new singer, very original in offering. The song reminds one of ‘Ajj Din Chadeya” from Love Aaj Kal. From the lyrics it can be drawn that here the boy goes gaga over a beautiful lass.

The second track that follows is ‘Sajh Dhak Ke’.  Since the film is set in Punjab as the backdrop, so without bhabra and Punjabi naach gaaana, the music won’t be complete. Here Mika flaunts his musical Jadoo and crooned the number with full energy. The remix of the song, ‘Club Mix’ and ‘Desi Mix’ are equally energizing.

The third track goes as ‘Ik Tu Hi Tu Hi’. This song has a pure feeling, very original in presentation. The song begins by Ustad Sultan but soon Hans Raj Hans takes the chord of the song in his hand and sung it so beautifully. Hans Raj Hans pure voice, Ishad’s touchy wordings and Pritam awesome composition makes the song one of the best tracks of ‘Mausam’.

The fourth track of the album sounds, ‘Poore Se Zara Sa Kam Nahin’ sung by Rashid Khan.  It is a sad track sung by Ustad Rashid Khan. Very pure and original in approach. It speaks how the protagonist in deep love longing for his lost love.

Then comes‘Aag Lage Us Aag Ko’ by Karsan Das Sargathia. It is a situational track. The song is very loud and unfortunately fails to make a place in your heart. It is a festive season track that falls in the line of ‘Dholi Taaro’ from ‘Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam’.  

The last but not the least song is ‘Mallo Malli’ crooned by Tochi Raina. It is a great party number and out and out a Punjabi number, high on beats.

In the nutshell, ‘Mausam’ again proves Pritam’s prowess.  The music of ‘Mausam ‘will greatly contribute to the film’ success.
