Meanwhile, AR Rahman sang a Punjabi number, Punjabi pataka for the first time
Imtiaz Ali Highway seems to throw one surprise after another. After donning Sufi singers – The Nooran sisters for the now popular song Pataka guddi (written by Irshad Kamil), songwriter AR Rahman sang Alia Bhatt to the song, Soon its.
“I am very fascinated by the concept of Hollywood actors who synchronize their lips with the songs they sing. I think it adds a nice and real feel to the song. In Highway, we wanted a natural voice for a lullaby and Imtiaz suggested we try Alia. I didn’t know she could sing, but Imtiaz said we had to give her a chance. I called Alia for a recording session and realized that her voice had a fine, natural texture that went well with the song, ”said Rahman.
At a press conference at a suburban hotel, Bhatt confessed that she was more of a bathroom singer and never thought she would land in Rahman’s studio to sing a song. for his own film. “Imtiaz casually told me about it, and I was like ‘yeah, that sounds good.’ I didn’t need too many rehearsals, but once I got to the studio I kept messing it up, so I straightened up and said, “You can’t do that in Rahman Sir’s studio.” I’m very grateful to him for being so patient, ”the actress said.
The creators also revealed Rahman’s version of Pataka guddi. The Oscar-winning music director mentioned that he loved the composition so much, that he really wanted to sing it, especially because it’s a Punjabi number. But since the track is depicted on a girl, he had to sign the Nooran sisters. “But we decided to go ahead with another version, which was eventually sung by me, making it my first Punjabi song,” Rahman said with a smile. A special clip for the song was shot last weekend on the outskirts of Mumbai, which features both Bhatt and Rahman, as the latter joked, “Imtiaz made me do crazy things in the video.”
Rahman added that although things got a little difficult, he had to work on the music and had to send the final copy to Los Angeles; Ali was extremely patient and supported him every step of the way. The album, which will be released very soon, will contain nine songs and a nice balance of contemporary tunes. The album will launch on the T series.
Sound of music

Jai Ho / Rhythm fusion
Salman Khan films are known to have songs that are different from others. Whether it be Dabangg, wanted or even Dabangg 2; each album had its own charm and the songs reflected the theme of the film. This time, Jai Ho is no different. Director Sohail Khan has strung their favorite duo Sajid – Wajid for three tracks, as well as young Amal Mallik and regional music composer Devi Sri Prasad who have three and one song respectively.
The album opens on Baki sab first class hai, a powerful song, with a socio-economic and political framework. The lyrics, written by Sajid, Irfan Kamal and the Danish Sabri, talk about the problems prevalent in our country. Wajid does the song perfectly justice, as he modulates his vocals well to convey the messages hidden in the track. The remix version of DJ Angel has a few extra beats and is an average fare.
The romantic number, Tere naïna brings back the flavor of the duo’s previous sweet and moving hits. Although Shreya Ghoshal and Shaan do a decent job as singers, as does Shadab Sabri with his qawwali portions, it fails to create any magic, especially since there are so many expectations after pieces like Chori kiya re and Tere mast mast make dwarf. Nevertheless, this gives an average and hummable number.
The Dholi taaro The inspired Photocopy number follows next, with Himesh Reshammiya performing the song with Palak Mucchal. Kausar Munir’s lyrics are catchy and grow within you with repeated listening. With words like Taaro photo nathi, toh photocopy bhi chaalse, expect this one to become a rage among those who speak Gujarati. The remixed version of the song by DJ Angel does a good dance act.
The amorous ballad Tumko to aana hi tha has a nice mix of Indian and contemporary instruments. Armaan Malik’s playful voice goes well with Marianne D’Cruz’s soft and clear voice, while Altamash Faridi’s alaap adds the perfect drama to this well-composed number. Mallik’s Love to the End is a good English romantic number. Composer Prasad comes to Nacho Ré – a full-fledged dance number that has a potpourri of semi-classical, folk, contemporary, rock and Bollywood tunes from the 90s. Singer Ujjayinee does a good job, but the song has very little chance of success. become another Dhinka chika. Mallik makes a big effort for the anthem, Jai Jai Jai ho, which brings together several artists including Wajid, Malik, Brijesh Shandilya and the composer himself. It’s a really good inspiring song. To summarize, Jai Ho is a bag mixed with some decent songs that will do well until the movie buzz sticks.
