Ram-Leela is Sanjay Leela Bhansali‘s Second self composed Musical after Guzaarish. With Fragrance of Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam and carrying a classic bollywood music theme, Ram-Leela’s music is as good as anticipated.
Ram-Leela’s music album has ten soundtracks with most of them above average and none of them that could be termed as bad. Making it nice and worth spending money on.
The Album starts its long journey with an average track Ang Laga De sung by Aditi Paul & Shail Hada.It doesn’t goes well in todays time because of the 90s lyrics. Some of the sentences like ‘raat banjar si hai, Kaale Khanjar si hai‘ proves how much out of time this song is.
Second track, Dhoop has Shreya Ghoshal‘s beautiful voice but even this is unable to take it any further because of average lyrics.
Having said about the first two tracks, the bad part of the album is over.Third track, Ishqyaun Dhishqyaun is a peppy song. Considering the music video, it gets the treatment it deserves. Ishqyaun Dhishqyaun is followed by Arjit Singh’s Laal Ishq, which is soundly semantic to the lyrics. The only thing that might resist its success would be time length of 6 mins 47 sec. Music for Laal Ishq complements the song very well.
Lahu Muh Lag Gaya gives an nostalgic air of Hum Dil De Chukey Sanam. Bhansali willfully wants us to trans out in past with this song.
Mor Bani Thanghat Kare is a exceptionally intellectual good track that will not leave you soon. However the important thing here is Aditi Paul & Osman Mir were able to do justice to this ancient lyrics song. Originally translated by Jhaverchand Meghani in 1920, the song was written in Bengali by Rabindra Nath Tagore. Mann mor bani thangaat kare is followed by Nagada Sang Dhol Baaje, a nice well written and sung track.It is quirky, peppy and full of energy. Remembrance of Dhol Bhaje from Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam helps it get to the sweet spot even before the song get over.
Shail Hada‘s vocal doesn’t help Poore Chand and could be skipped easily. After Poore Chand you get Ram Chahe Leela, the only song that provides variation to the music album.Sung by Bhoomi Trivedi, this song has nice funk lyrics.
Last and the best song of the album is Aditya Narayan’s tattad tattad. With an upbeat tribal trance music and accurately complemented with good lyrics and quality narrative singing, this song has been on #repeat button for me.
You get some really good songs for your playlist and would love Ram-Leela’s music.Listed below is details of soundtrack and ratings.
