Dear Zindagi: Striking the right chord

MUMBAI: 'Dear Zindagi' album is here and it is going to stay close to our hearts for a very long time. Music composer Amit Trivedi’s music in this album is bright and the usage of the musical instruments is apt. His music breathes the theme of the film and his team of singers and instrumentalist bring it out brilliantly.

Movie - Dear Zindagi

Music - Amit Trivedi

Lyrics - Kausar Munir

Album review -

Song- Love You Zindagi

Singer- Jasleen Royal

The first song of the album brings hope. It instantly makes you fall in love with life, living up to its title ‘Love You Zindagi’. 

Jasleen Royal sound effortless and so does Trivedi’s music. Tiny elements in the sounds score like the clapping sound, remind you of the joys that the tiniest of things bring to us. Lyrics by Kausar Munir too remind one of the simplicity of life.

Song- Tu Hi Hai

Singer- Arijit Singh

If you had been praying to hear Arijit Singh try something new, this is your track. ‘Tu Hi Hai’ is a happy song with some wacky lyrics. Overall this track brings in a very sweet feel. Something that Imran Khan and Genelia D’Souza starrer ‘Jaane Tu ... Ya Jaane Na’ music created back in 2008.

Song- Taarefon Se

Singer- Arijit Singh

By the time you reach the third song of the album you realise that this album is nowhere close to being an OTT. Every musical chord has been used to relax your impulsive nerves. ‘Taarefon Se’ turns out to be yet another easy number that turns out to be another differentiating factor in Singh’s discography.

The saxophone is the magical element of this track. Overall this jazz track suits best as a background score. You do not expect one to have an entire video on this song – given the usual Bollywood music format.

Song- Let's Break Up

Singer- Vishal Dadlani

2016 has been about breakup songs. From an ‘Ae Dil Hai Mushkil- Breakup Song’ to the ‘Dear Zindagi’ break up song one thing remains in common ‘no rona-dhona’. This one turns out to be a male version of the breakup song, while the latter was a girl’s version.

Vishal Dadlani’s voice just works right. The music is appealing and the song makes you want to tap your feet from the first beat itself.

Song- Just Go To Hell Dil

Singer- Sunidhi Chauhan

Song- Love You Zindagi (Club Mix)

Singer- Alia Bhatt

It’s an upbeat version of the original, perfect package for a club night. Needless to say Jr. Bhatt sounds pitch perfect.

Song- Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le (Take 1)

Singer- Arijit Singh

Original Film: Sadma

Original Composer: Ilaiyaraaja

Original Lyrics: Gulzar

Going by the trend Trivedi recreated ‘Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le’, but the modern version of the song is not too impressive. Arijit as usual sounds flawless, the music is just fine.

Song- Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le (Take 2)

Singer- Alia Bhatt

Original Film: Sadma

Original Composer: Ilaiyaraaja

Original Lyrics: Gulzar

Alia’s version of this song is something that we’ve been hearing during her promotional campaigns. So does the new track impress us? Well, the pause and rewind feel mixed with EDM does work for us.
