Bareilly Ki Barfi


Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is a light hearted drama and keeping in mind the simple story, the music of the film was also kept cheery and easy. Starring Ayushmann Khurrana, Rajkummar Rao and Kriti Sanon in the lead roles, the music of the film was composed by Tanishk Bagchi -Vayu, Arko Pravo Mukerjee, Samira Koppikar and Sameer Uddin and Shabbir Ahmed, Arko, Tanishk Bgachi and Vayu,Puneet Sharma and Akshay Verma penned the lyrics of the songs.

The film has altogether five songs and two songs were reprised.

The album opens with the first song, ‘Sweaty Tera Drama’ and it is picturized at the backdrop of Indian wedding. If it is Indian wedding then latkas and jhatkas are must and we can see the trio dancing at a wedding. The song has purely desi feeling and Hindustani musical arrangements like 'Dholak, Sarangi, Banjo and Harmonium give a desi feeling to the song. ‘Sweaty Tera Drama’ is a group song rendered by Pawni Pandey, Shraddha Pandit, Dev Negi and Pravesh Mallick. Tanishk-Vayu composed song has Shabbir Ahmed penned the lyrics.

The second track goes as 'Nazm Nazm'. It is a beautiful rendition by Arko. The song is totally his. He has sung, written and composed it. The song has a soothing feel and it reminds one the chartbuster song 'Main Rang Sharbaton Ka' from ‘Phata Poster Nikhla Hero’. It is going to a long run song. 
Not only Arko but Ayushmann Khurranna and Sumedha Karmahe also went behind the mike and crooned singly. The three of them sung the same song with different feel which will strike your heart.

Next in the line is ‘Twist Kamariya’. It is again a foot-tapping number, purely desi in the outing. It is fun-filled number crooned by Harshdeep Kaur, Yasser Desai, Altamash Faridi and Tanishk. It is similar to the line of ‘Sweaty Tera Drama’ Tanishk-Vayu penned the fun lyrics. 

The next song in the line is ‘Bairaagii’. It is a beautiful rendition by versatile singer Arijit Singh. Samira Koppikar has lend support to the song and the song is a blend of western and Indian arrangements. Puneet Sharma has penned the lyrics. ‘Bairaagii’ is a treat to hear.
Samira Koppikar also went solo behind the mike to render ‘Bairaagii’ but with a different feel. It is a delight to hear the song in Arijit Singh and Samira Koppikar’s voice.

Last that comes to enthral the audience is ‘Badass Babuaa’. This song is purely situational and has been played multiple times as a background song.  Abhishek Nailwal, Neha Bhasin & Sameer Uddin crooned together and it has a Punjabi flavour. It is fun number and lyrics was penned by Akshay Verma.

Overall, the music of ‘Bareilly Ki Barfi’ is average. Songs like 'Sweety Tera Drama', 'Twist Kamariya' and 'Nazm Nazm' might create some dhamaal at the box-office. It can be rated poor due to its variations and entertaining quotient.
