Less than a week remains for the release of Aiyaary
and the soundtrack has just been unveiled. It doesn't make much of a difference though since there are just three songs in the film [composers: Rochak Kohli
, Ankit Tiwari
, lyricist: Manoj Muntashir
] and they have already been released as singles.
First to arrive is 'Lae Dooba
' that has melody seeped into it right through the three and a half minute duration. Rochak Kohli does quite well to spin together this romantic number which has a young girl being truly in love with the man of her dreams. It is remarkable to hear how Sunidhi Chauhan
sings it so well for Rakul Preet Singh
as her voice comes across as just the right fit. A good start to the album.
Palak Mucchal is the voice of Rahul though for the next song in the soundtrack, 'Yaad Hai
'. A decent piece which has Ankit Tiwari stepping in as a composer as well as singer, 'Yaad Hai' is about a couple remembering the romantic moments and sweet nothings that they had spent together. In the current generation, Palak's voice has a definite identity to it and that plays well here too. That said, how one wishes that the tune was as catchy as 'Lae Dooba' as even after repeated listening, somehow you don't quite recollect the sound of 'Yaad Hai' unless you play it all over again.
The one that you do remember after the first listening itself is 'Shuru Kar'. A song that could well have been a rock band outing, one wonders whether it would feature in the film as well or just play along in the end credit rolls. Put to tune by Rochak Kohli and written by Manoj Muntashir, the song has Amit Mishra
, Neha Bhasin
and Rochak Kohli coming together to make a good all around impact. This could well have been a theme track of Aiyaary and released much earlier in the film's campaign.
Overall, even though the music of Aiyaary
isn't really extraordinary with the three songs just about fitting in the proceedings, there isn't anything in there that you turn away from. Average.
Our picks: La Do Dooba, Shuru Kar
