Rating: 3/5 Stars (Three stars)
Music Director/s: Amit Trivedi
Dear Zindagi starring Alia Bhatt and Shah Rukh Khan in key roles is all set to hit the theaters this week. The film has had an interesting string of teasers and a few songs that were released by the makers instead of a proper trailer. The film’s music has been composed by Amit Trivedi.
Here’s a look at the songs of the film:
1. Love You Zindagi – Dear Zindagi Music Review
Love You Zindagi is a delightful track that instantly lights up your mood with its breezy music. The cuteness is added by Jasleen Royal’s vocals who brings a certain amount of innocence to the song. Kausar Munir’s lyrics are heart felt and relatable for every person. Love You Zindagi is one of those tracks that you would love to listen when you’re just chilling by yourself.
2. Tu Hi Hai – Dear Zindagi Music Review
Arijit Singh is currently a sensation in the music scene. While he may be singing dozens of songs these days, it is tracks like Tu Hi Hai that remind you why he is so successful. Not only is Tu Hi Hai written beautifully, but also sung with much ease by Arijit. The conversational nature of this song makes it more interesting. The mushy romantic track will be appealing to all those who like cheesy songs.
3. Taarefon Se – Dear Zindagi Music Review
Taarefon Se comes across as a signature Amit Trivedi track. The light strumming and peppy beats, an overall jazz feel are quite likable and Kausar Munir’s quirky lyrics too work its way with this music. It may not become a favorite but is certainly worth a hear. It does seem that the song may be more interesting to watch in terms of its context than as a audio track.
4. Let’s Break Up – Dear Zindagi Music Review
Crooned by Vishal Dadlani, Let’s Break Up is a fast paced number. The beats are similar to most party tracks. There is nothing exceptional about this song. Compared to the recently released, Ae Dil Hai Mushkil‘s Break Up Song, this one is average.
5. Just Go To Hell Dil – Dear Zindagi Music Review
Kausar Munir very rightly puts the feeling of heartbreak in ‘Just Go To Hell Dil‘. It conveys the pain very well but as a song, may be it is composer Amit Trivedi’s setting that doesn’t work. Sunidhi Chauhan sings it with the required energy but still there’s some disconnect here. The mid portions of the song remind you of Aisha’s Lehrein music.
6. Ae Zindagi Gale Laga Le – Dear Zindagi Music Review
Ilaiyaraaja’s composition from Sadma, written by Gulzar, Ae Zindagi gets a fresh take in this album. Trivedi adds some good bass guitar and Arijit Singh’s vocals. The song goes with the film’s theme and the original rendition doesn’t lose its flavor in the new setting.
There is another version of the song, crooned by Alia Bhatt. The beats are upbeat for this one and Alia’s casual singing makes it sound really good. Overall, both the versions work well.
Last Word – Dear Zindagi Music Review
The soundtrack of Dear Zindagi is much like its teasers, fresh and light hearted. The easy breezy music by Amit Trivedi is quite enjoyable. Tu Hai and Love You Zindagi are best tracks from the album. I’m going with a 3/5 for it!
