A romantic drama under the banner of Eros International and Illuminati Films, the film is a debut for Imtiaz Ali’s brother Arif Ali as a director. The movie stars newbees Armaan Jain, who has been previously spotted assisting director Karan Johar (and is Ranbir Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor’s cousin), and Deeksha Seth, (apparently a box office bomb in the Telugu film industry) who is giving it her first go in Bollywood. It is all set to release on 4th July 2014. The music album is entirely composed by A.R. Rahman.
The album starts with a big bang party song. Finally something that is not about booze and girls, but about the youth and their kick-ass attitude (Khalifa means leader). This song was created in a one night’s jamming session.Not sure if we were supposed to understand the beginning rap, but the song is still great! This may be one of the top hits this year, firstly because it’s a party song and secondly it’s by A.R. Rahman. You will get hooked on to it, definitely yes, but as good as A.R. Rahman’s voice is, Suzanne D’Mello’s rap is just that bad! Also, the random beeps to give a cool abusing impression fails to make it cooler. The youth is more than about abusing and wanna-be rapping.
There is whistling, mushy lyrics, humming chorus, Hriday Gattani’s young, fresh voice, and everything a romantic song needs. Though I don’t like the girl part at all, it sounds out of place as it picks up a random tune, and is badly sung by Jonita Gandhi. The song sounds very, very familiar and not too original. As for the video, it’s very cute and fun! Both Armaan and Deeksha are just so adorable. It’s a hit, yep!
Sung so wonderfully by Shiraz Uppal, there is something very fresh about the track. It sounds like a semi break-up song, and yet there is a happy feeling about it. For those who don’t know what it means, it means separated. The only sad thing about the song is the video. Love the lyrics – absolutely different.
When I read the title, I really didn’t expect the song to start the way it did! With weird opera sounding beginning, it suddenly goes to some sort of tribal music. It’s extremely weird and random, but it’s superbly sung by Raghav Mathur and Tanvi Shah. The song picks up towards the middle and becomes almost addictive towards the end! And the video is steaming hot. Definitely some mawwali or qawwali you have never heard before.
What a lame song. Shot in a college campus, the song is meant to be cute but in actual reality makes no sense. The lyrics are a bit too casual, and boring. And Armaan Jain confidently wears more make up than Deeksha Seth. Sung by Hriday Gattani.
Beautifully sung by both Shweta Pandit and Nakash Aziz. Shweta’s voice is like an angel The lyrics are new, different, and really nice. The music is soothing and light, barely even there most of the time. It’s all her voice and what she sings. What beautiful sadness.
Different from the usual, stale love songs, sad songs, and party songs. A.R. Rahman definitely knows how to make his album different and lovely to the ear, whether they are offbeat songs or just the regular romantic, cute or sad melodies!
