Jab Harry Met Sejal Music Review

By Tulsi, Bollywood.com News Network

Shahrukh Khan and Anushka Sharma’s rom-com flick, produced by Red Chillies Entertainment, is a story on a Punjabi tour guide Harinder Singh, aka Harry, and Gujrati girl Sejal. The music is by Pritam, so you can expect a few memorable numbers. 
 
1. Radha
 
The album kick-starts with the super-energetic track by Shahid Mallya and Sunidhi Chauhan. Sunidhi steals the show once more with her powerful voice, but to be honest, this song is a little overrated. The video too is strictly average. Nothing romantic or mushy about it, and easily forgotten. Of course, Anushka does look lovely. 
 
 
2. Beech Beech Mein
 
Beech Beech Mein is a situational track with a retro disco feel to it. It sort of has an interesting ring to it. I like it much better than Radha. The singers are Shefali Alvares, Shalmali Kholgade and the mesmerizing Arijit Singh. Definitely deserves a hear! 
 
3. Safar
 
A melodious, dreamy and poetic track with an innovative tune and lyrics, this number is hands down the best song of the album! And personally I feel that this is one of Arijit’s best work. The vocals are raw and his emotions are out there – you can feel them through his voice! Heard an amazing song after a long, long, long time. This number not only stands out of the album, but all the songs I have heard this year. 
 
4. Butterfly
 
That Punjabi wedding track that all movies with a Punjabi lead character has! And as all of these, this one too is electrifying, with lots of dhamaal, masti and romance. But most importantly, Shahrukh looks so handsome in the black Punjabi traditional outfit that he dons at the very beginning of the song! His charm magnifies as he does what he does best, but in Punjabi style. However, right after that, the song takes you to the Punjab ke khet that gives you traditional Punjabi feels. With SRK’s charm, Anushka’s energy, the wonderful singers Aman Trikha, Nooran Sisters, Dev Negi and Sunidhi Chauhan, and the quirky lyrics with some seriously innovative steps, this fast-paced track is super-fun!
 
5. Hawayein
 
This romantic number is a typical Arijit song, with lots of slow-motion singing, intense feelings exposed, and a handsome hero showing some fairytale love to his heroine. Except here, Shahrukh Khan can’t lip-sing! Once I moved past this traumatic witness, I realised how bored I am of SRK doing the same romance tricks again and again since the past 5 songs (you know, twirling, looking so deep into the eyes that your soul is exposed, dimpled smiles, etc.) I mean, he got a new voice now, can’t he do something different with his expressions?
 
6. Parinda
 
A seriously interesting song with some rock ’n’ roll and intense Punjabi lyrics. I approve of this super-cool combination! Also, Pardeep Sran’s voice, very traditionally Punjabi, enhances the intended creative effect of the fusion.
Nikhil D’souza and Tochi Raina’s Search version is pretty cool as well. 
 
 
7. Ghar
 
Sung by Nikhita Gandhi and Mohit Chauhan, this romantic song is basically the answer to the song Safar. While Safar talks about a very lost Harry, Ghar talks about Sejal being his home, destiny, love, etc. An interesting way to put it, and a very beautifully sung, melodious number. It’s also very short, unlike the other songs of the album. 
 
 
8. Yaadon Mein
 
A heartbreak song, in the voices of Mohammed Irfan, Jonita Gandhi and Cuca Roseta, this one is impactful and touching, almost depressing. The singing is soulful, and the music is lovely.  
 
9. Raula
 
This song has Neeti Mohan team up with Diljit Dosanjh (yes, that’s right!) for the vocals. And is it worth it? Absolutely! It’s fun, cute and totally danceable! Diljit adds a fresh touch to the number, and Neeti always impresses. 
 
10. Jee Ve Sohaneya
 
A melodious Punjabi heartbreak song. And that’s all that there is to it. 
 
11. Phurrr
 
In the voices of Diplo, Tushar Joshi and Mohit Chauhan, this is a kick-ass composition! With super-awesome beats, this number is definitely one of the coolest and most unexpected ways to end this album. 
 
Overall an entertainer, but too, too long. A typical Bollywood package with an equal number of dance songs, love songs, and heartbreak songs. And of course, some random tracks here and there that don’t fit into any of these buckets and are actually the best ones.
