Break Ke Baad - Music Review
Woos with its melody
Music is oxygen to Bollywood. Any romantic film can’t be without its most essential part - music. So when love is in the air, what kind of music it brings in? Break Ke Baad’s music director Vishal-Shekhar, who by now are quite expert in creating music for romantic flicks, yet again walk the well-trodden path. But does that make the Break Ke Baad songs not interesting or entertaining? Well, not exactly. Let’s find out what happens when Vishal-Shekhar team up with master of words Prasoon Joshi for this Deepika Padukone-Imran Khan starrer.
Moving to the album. Its first offering Adhoore Hum Adhoore Tum comes with perky music, trademark of Vishal Shekhar who generally like to keep it light. As guitar takes the forefront and Vishal Dadlani wields the mike, the song gets charged up. Not to forget Alyssa Mendonca who induces sassy flavor to the number. Adhoore Hum Remix is an entertaining, frisky number, just like the remix of a hit number should be.
Continuing the same melodious mood, the next offering is Ajab Leher. The song, soused in jazz and a bit of Bollywood pop, makes for a pleasant hearing. Singer Neeraj Sridhar is quite comfortable rendering such songs. Perfect!
Dhoop Ke Makan is a thought provoking song with philosophical lyrics like “Dhoop Ke Makan Sa Yeh Safar”. Sounds Gulzar-ish, doesn’t it! Shekhar Ravijiani croons this song with aplomb. He is joined by the talented Caralissa Monteiro and Sunidhi Chauhan. Indeed a track for a quiet evening getaway or a long drive. The slow Dhoop Ke Makan Acoustic version is an endearing number.
Dooriyan Hai Zaroori rocks the album. Monica Dogra and Vishal Dadlani have done a wonderful job with this track. The pulsating beats of the song will instantly strike a chord with the music buffs. The song is guaranteed to impress when comes alive on screen. Expecting a good picturisation of the song!
Main Jiyoonga is about the spirit of life. Just like the other tracks, it is zippy as well as peppy. Don’t Worry About Me is the English version of Main Jiyoonga with simple lyrics. The song can remind one of situational tracks in Hollywood films.
Light rock music of the 80s has clearly influenced the album as most of the songs are not too hard on ears; they are rather soft and fresh in approach. With guitar and drums playing the crucial role, the tracks are pretty successful in wooing us with their melody.
Break Ke Baad tracks are engaging and with breezy feel.
