Mumbai: Yash Raj Films has released the music of its next film Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic. The film has been made in association with Kunal Kohli Productions.
The film stars Saif Ali Khan and Rani Mukerji. The music is by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and lyrics are by Prasoon Joshi.
Shankar Ehsaan Loy have given a range of different melodies in this album.
The album opens with Pyaar Ke Liye, sung by Shankar Mahadevan, which sums up the mood and spirit of the film. The lyrics provide the base for a contemplative yet uplifting romantic song that is given an extra zest by a superb background chorus of voices and a strong guitar line that is weaved in at places throughout the song.
The next track Nihaal Ho Gayi combines eastern and western beats like only perhaps Shankar Ehsaan Loy can. Alternating and combining jazzy guitar chords at the start with qawwali infused vocalization, percussions and handclaps and sometimes carried along mainly by the soulfulness of Shankar’s voice, Nihaal Ho Gayi is a mélange of musical influences that truly works like magic.
Lazy Lamhe, which comes up next, would not be out of place in a night club in New York or Barcelona, not to mention Mumbai, Delhi or Ludhiana. The opening hook is one of the most insanely catchy ones heard in recent times and Anusha Mani does full justice in conveying the lazy sensuousness of the song picturised on Ameesha Patel. The song also has a remix version by DJ Aqeel.
Lazy Lamhe is followed on the album by Bulbula, picturised on Mukerji, and voiced by Sunidhi Chauhan and Shankar Mahadevan.
Shreya Ghosal and Sneha Suresh, helped by a background of children’s voice, proclaims the confident and assertive spirit of the new India even while proclaiming its determination to not forget the lessons of the past. It’s a new spin on the patriotic song, inspirational yet trendy and catchy. Beetey Kal Se, is more than a patriotic song, its more than an educative song, it’s a social comment on where we are today and where we’re going tomorrow.
The album is brought to a close by the DJ Aqeel remixes of Nihaal Ho Gayi and Lazy Lamhe.
The film is directed by Kunal Kohli and the music has been released on YRF Music.
