Highway Music Review : Highway is a masterpiece crafted well by A.R. Rahman

Highway Music Review turns out to be a pleasure and perfect delight for my ears. Highway is well crafted and indeed a pleasure to listen. Finding A. R. Rahman’s music is finding peace in music. Such a stable innovative patterned music throughout the album is doing more than justice to songs.

Highway is not only Rahman’s musical delight. Irshad Kamil has written well, in fact very well, especially Heera n Maahi Ve. When it comes to addiction for songs, I believe it requires perfect singing with perfect lyrics and backed by perfect music. Highway not only gives us one such track but at least three prefect tracks. Patakha Guddi, Kahan Hoon Main and Maahi Ve are must take aways from the music album.

Lets walk through the entire album and see how Highway performs trackwise during our review

  • Patakha Guddi  Listen on EROSNOW Watch on EROSNOW

    The high note Rahman music with strong Punjabi Folk lyrics is a perfect opening for a soundtrack. Jyoti and Sultana Nooran have done magnificent singing. Patakha Guddi is a spiritual folk singing sung in a bollywood fashion. Patakha Guddi appears sweet even with bold strong singing, such is the power of A. R. Rahman’s music. A must listen with repeat on.

  • Maahi Ve  Watch on EROSNOW

    The Second track from Highway is addictive. Rahman’s beautiful music brought to life with Irshad’s meaning lyrics. Maahi Ve is a soulful romantic blend that preaches love in a delightful manner. This has been on my repeat list ever since I listened it.

  • Kahan Hoon Main

    Sung by Jonita Gandhi, the song starts on a slow but strong notes. It gears ups on Rahman’s music and is much delight because of freshness which Jonita’s voice bring to the track. Kahan Hoon Main is a slow, smooth bollywood number.

  • Wanna Mashup ?

    An alternative mix track nicely presented by Lady Kash and Krissy. In one of the earlier music reviews I criticised Bollywood’s obsession with English tracks and Highway ensured that the obsession is carried forward. 🙂

  • Sooha Saha

    Sooha Saha is a slow track and a nice lullaby. Alia Bhat has done background singing for this song and I was really excited to listen Sooha Saha. I must say Alia did not fail and has done above average singing. It is really a commendable job considering the fact that slow classical lullaby requires more perfection. A good track indeed.

  • Patakha Guddi(Male)

    Patakha Guddi(Male) is a fusion genre version of original track placed very well on uprise background musical score. Generally, Male/Female versions do not offer one a lot of difference except for vocals, but this is not the case with Patakha Guddi. Expect the lyrics there are no other common points in the male version. Rehman has himself sung this version. The singing is done in a very playful tone and does not fails to impress.

  • Implosive Silence

    Implosive Silence is an instrumental track. Though engaging, there is not much to say about it as I was unable to find anything new in track. A. R. Rehman makes a nice shift in ambiences during the track and ending it with a very nice cool off period during last 30 seconds.

  • Tu Kuja

    Tu Kuja is prayer themed classical blend track. The song is backed by soulful singing by Sunidhi Chauhan.  I must say Irshad Kamil has really done a great job with lyrics. Tu Kuja Mann Kuja { Tu Kahan Main Kahan } is not addictive but connects very well. The instant Sunidhi begins the song, it makes  a heartfelt connect.

  • Heera  

    [Classical]  The Last track from the album Highway is sung by Shweta Pandit. The heavy meaning lyrics are well crafted and if you have an ear for some meaningful depth carrying song, it will be perfect ending.  I specially liked the blend between the singing and music. At times I was unable to grasp the meaning of this song, yet it was a peace to ears.
