Music Review: Just Married

Film: Just Married

Music Released by: T Series

Music Director: Pritam

Lyrics: Gulzar

Rating: 3.5/5

The Gulzar – Pritam combination presents some hummable songs in Just Married. Thankfully, this album does not have the ‘typical Pritam music’ that one has been subjected to, of late. His choice of singers is also not the usual run, and has been handled well. As the film’s basic theme is marriage, most of the songs too are based on the same topic.

In Tune

Ram Milaye Jodi is a very lively song and has been rendered equally zestfully by Sukhwinder Singh, Sunidhi Chauham and Shaan. This song has a remix version too, which is even more enjoyable. Thankfully, its melody hasn’t been outrageously tampered with, as is done with most remixes nowadays. The song has a small sad version which has also been sung by Sukhwinder Singh.

Gudgudee is a soft and slow song by Sunidhi Chauhan. One has been used to listening to Sunidhi in fast and loud songs. This is a type of song that she hasn’t rendered since long, but she carries off this song well.

Baat Pakki is another fast song and the lyrics by Gulzar like Jaan phasi saas atki hai… jiyan maran to laga rahega..baat humari pakki hai ….add a dash of fun to the song. This song too has three versions. The first one has been rendered by Shaan and Neeraj Shridhar, the remix version not only has additional beats, but also additional singers. It has vocals by Shaan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Mahalakhsmi Iyer and Sukhwinder Singh. And this remix version also has a non remix version by the same five singers.

Doha is the sad song in the film and the most outstanding part of this song is its rendition by Daler Mehndi. It’s surprising to hear Mehndi’s voice in a sad song, especially after his Rang De Basanti title song that released last year.

Jaagte Raho is the only song in the album that has been rendered by Sonu Nigam. This song is the one after they are ‘Just Married’, perhaps.

Out of Tune

There is nothing out of tune about this album, one can only hopes that the songs are marketed well, since most have the capacity to top the charts.

Songs like Ram Milaye Jodi and Baat Pakki in the album are outright commercial and instantly make you tap your feet. Others like Gudgudee, Doha and Jaagte Raho lack that commercial essence in the true sense, but at the same time, there is nothing bad about them. These are probably the songs that need some time and space to grow on listeners.
