Heroine Music Review: Heroine – Meets Expectations
Madhur Bhandarkar's much awaited Heroine is expected to be another good addition to the likes of Chandni Bar, Fashion and Corporate. One draws a lot of expectations from the music of the film too, especially since Salim-Sulaiman had given some good chartbusters in Fashion. The music album comprises of five tracks including an item number, a Sufi track and a rock outing.
An item number is one of the tried and tested ways to connect with masses and the ingredients comprises of a sensual voice, naughty and catchy lyrics, music that complements the theme well and a charming body beautiful to bring it all together. This is what makes the first track of the album, Halkat Jawani, a special one. With vocals by Sunidhi Chauhan, this track proceeds well with the use of word Aaja being really addictive. Add to that a diverse musical arrangements comprising of guitar, harmonium and dhol and you can hear an enhanced effect. Moreover, lyrics by Niranjan Iyengar do well with the setting too, hence resulting in an all around package affair.
The second track is the title song Main Heroine Hoon which is in the vocals of Aditi Singh Sharma. This one is a situational composition while also lending a haunting feel. The beginning has a touch of Bond theme though the song proceeds wellwith a nice fusion of 'sitar' along with modern instruments. The whole musical setup is quite good with Sanjay Chhel's lyrics rightly symbolizing the film's theme.
Album is carried forward by Saaiyan, a solo classical Sufi track in the melodious voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. This one is a soft and touching rendition that opens with an impressive male chorus, further to which Rahat's voice aptly narrates the pain and agony of a broken heart. Amitabh Bhattacharya's lyrics are astounding and remarkable that only relaxes one's soul.
Rock and Shreya Ghoshal is a rare combination and with the track Khwahishein, and one gets to witness that. There is a good fusion of piano and violin and though Irfan Siddique's lyrics are just average, it is Shreya who keeps the feel of melancholy alive while giving an accurate substantiation of her versatility.
The album ends with the track Tujhpe Fida which is the only duet song with vocals by Benny Dayal and Shradha Pandit. This club song has in it to take you to the dance floor with its energy and mood. Shradha's vocals appear to be really amazing in her solo portion as she creates a perfect chemistry with Benny that further makes it a nice treat for the listener.
Overall, Heroine turns out to be a good album that may have done a little better had it climbed a few more stairs up the popularity quotient. Having said that, the USP of the album is Halkat Jawani which is already making its way to the top of the charts.
