Jab Harry Met Sejal Music Review

Jab Harry Met Sejal Music Review
inUth

SRK is back and with Anushka, Jab Harry Met Sejal is one of the most awaited films of the year.

All Imtiaz Ali ventures have been musical delights, this time he teams with Pritam. Irshad Kamil takes the pen. So without further ado let’s explore what this album has to offer for the ears.

1. Radha

Shahid Mallaya starts on a high note quite literally, and then the ever so brilliant Sunidhi Chauhan owns the song with her vocals.
Intertwined in a peppy and energetic musical arrangement the duo act as one of the best openers we’ve heard in recent days.
The song is youthful, dynamic and zestful declaration of love.

2. Beech Beech Mein

This song is indeed somewhere between EDM and Disco. Perhaps more of a situational track, it does feel a tad mellowed after the zingy Radha.
It certainly does the job though, and has the potential to be a narrative. We’d get more after we see the movie.
The singers have done a commendable job.

3. Safar

This song is a gem, hands down. One of Arijit’s best experiments for sure.
Listen it over and over to realize the magic woven by the arpeggio at intro, the bass lines in background which usually go unnoticed, mild distortion guitars and modest solos.
The elements of this song is derived from blues, soft rock, jazz, but minimal arrangements help us to find the unsung hero.
The real star here is Irshad Kamil. His words are the soul of the song. Poetry at its finest, the words are deep and meaningful. Hats off to him for keeping the ‘Dead Poets Society’ alive.

“Jab se gaon se main sheher hua, itna kadwa ho gaya ki jeher hua”, enough said

4. Butterfly

The quintessential Pritam Punjabi number, and it lives up to the charm.
Desi, enticing and power packed, this is the fast paced dance number. A quick contrast in flow is triggered post safar.
Aman Trikha, Noorani Sisters, Dev and Sunidhi ensure that there’s never a dull moment. Irshad can write them all with ease. This one is a fun track.

5. Hawayein

This is a typical Arijit Singh love song, nothing new.
But it’s no slouch by any means. Love songs are Arijit’s forte and so is this one. A treat for all the romantics out there.
Somehow reminds me of Man Mast Magan. Wonderful lyrics, masterful singing and composition. A perfect climax to this diversified album.

Verdict:

Pritam is on a roll. First Jagga Jasoos and now Jab Harry Met Sejal. This too is a delight for the ears.
It has peppiness in Radha and Beech Beech me, ‘Punjabiness’ in Butterfly, and purpose in Safar and Hawayein. Definitely builds on the anticipation for the movie.
Let us know how you liked the album…
