The soundtrack of Why Cheat India is out in its entirety, and one of its highlights happens to be a song named Taiyaari. Interestingly, it has been sung and composed by Soumik Sen, who happens to also be the director of this upcoming flick. A lyrical video of the song has just been released by T-Series, and is really grabbing the attention of its subscribers.
The song Taiyaari has been written in the same vein as Give Me Some Sunshine from 3 Idiots. In that, it explores the burdens of studying in order to fulfil other people’s expectations. The lyrics by Juhi Saklani hit the mark with their touching observations of the mind-sets of those studying day and night for exams. However, these are not lines written by a disciplined poet, since there’s plenty of stiffness present in the rhymes.
For instance, the lines “Barahwa cup chai hai, thaka sa dimaag hai. Entrance exam ka barah masa raag hai. Moti si salary ka, hara bhara baag hai. Entrance exam ka barah masa raag hai” sound like thoughts that have been forced into rhymes. But that isn’t true for the entire song. The song begins with lines that echo the sad truth – “Jeevan ki race mein, aage badh rahe hai. Aaj kal bachhe, taiyari kar rahe hai.”
In case you don’t know yet, Why Cheat India has its story revolve around all the things wrong with the education system in India. It stars Emraan Hashmi and Shreya Dhanwanthary, and has been directed by Soumik Sen. The film was earlier titled Cheat India, but the Censor Board asked the makers to alter the name because the certification body thought the original title to be a bit negative in nature.
The film’s soundtrack has been composed by a number of music directors. Its first song Daaru Wargi is a Guru Randhawa number, but its best song is definitely Phir Mulaqaat, a Kunaal-Rangon composition that speaks about romance in the time of separation.
Why Cheat India is scheduled to hit theatres across India tomorrow.
