‘Befikre’ is a modern-day romantic drama starring Ranveer Singh and Vaani Kapoor. It is Aditya Chopra’s directorial after a gap of almost eight years and is slated to release on December 9. The music for the film has been composed by Vishal Dadlani and Shekhar Ravjiani, popular as Vishal-Shekhar, while the lyrics have been penned by Jaideep Sahni. ‘Befikre’ soundtrack released under Yash Raj Music consists of six tracks and an instrumental piece.
Labon Ka Karobar: This is a soft romantic number in the soothing vocals of Papon. The song begins accordion music and has a Latin American feel to it, and is pleasant to the ears. The lyrics are nice and describes how it feels to be in passionate love.
Nashe Si Chadh Gayi: This one is a catchy song with foot-tapping beats. Arijit Singh has rendered this number, while Caralisa Monteiro has sung the opening lines in French. The lyrics are also quirky – ‘… Humko turant aise lagti current jaise, nikhla ho warrant jaise’.
Ude Dil Befikre: It is the title song of the movie and is a peppy number with upbeat music, with a heavy Middle-Eastern rhythm. It has been energetically sung by Benny Dayal. The song also has additional French vocals by Sophie Choudhary.
You & Me: Sung by Nikhil D'Souza and Rachel Varghese, this one is also a lively and upbeat track. The music is rhythmic with consistent clapper and bass sounds throughout the song. The hook line from the lyrics, ‘It’s you and me’, is catchy.
Khulke Dulke: It is an over-the-top Punjabi wedding song with Bhangra beats and is extremely high on energy. Punjabi singer Gippy Grewal and Harshdeep Kaur have sung it with full enthusiasm. The mostly Punjabi lyrics are peppered with a few English phrases as well.
Je T'aime: This is a melodious song and begins with a whistling note giving way to guitar strums accompanied by Vishal Dadlani’s vocals. Sunidhi Chauhan lends the female vocals. Piano and violin music, and the saxophone piece makes the song enchanting. The mix of French and Hindi lyrics are poetic, only that it says never to say ‘I love you’.
Love Is a Dare: This is an instrumental version of the songs which blend into one great instrumental piece.
Like the soundtrack of Aditya Chopra’s previous directorials, ‘Befikre’ too has an impressive composition by Vishal-Shekhar. Especially ‘Nashe Si Chadh Gayi’, ‘Ude Dil Befikre’ and ‘Je T'aime’ are mood-uplifting.
