Song: Gaaye Ja
Lyricist: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Mohammed Irfan
Gaaye Ja from Brothers is clearly one of the most underrated songs of recent times. While the album has another beautiful song “Sapna Jahaan”, this is one number which you shouldn’t miss at any cost.
Gaaye Ja comes in two versions (male & female) in the Brothers’ music album. The female version is sung by Shreya Ghoshal & the male version has the vocals of Mohammed Irfan. The best thing is that both versions of Ajay-Atul composed song compliment each other.
The song has a very mesmerising and soothing kind of feel to it. If you are doing nothing at this moment, just play the track and it will take you to a whole new zone. And that chorus by child singers which plays in the background will haunt you for a long time.
Last but not the least, the lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya are top-notch. His words are powerful and have the strength to give you hope even in the darkest of time. “Sooraj tera gardish mein hai, dhalte huye keh gaya, phir laut ke aauga main nazdeek hi hai subah.. Gaaye ja gaaye ja, gham mein hai sargam, gunguna ye dhun, gaaye ja”
Just when these words click your mind, it gives you goosebumps.
Then the whole song and in fact both versions are loaded with phrases that are sure to change your perspective towards life. And if you are a soft-hearted person you’ll have tears rolling on your cheeks in no time. Just touch your eyes when that line comes, “Toota hua to kya sitaara tu, kisi ka ban sahara tu”
Overall, in a dark phase like the ongoing pandemic which has taken a huge toll on so many people’s mental health, this song is a true blessing. Because “Hai zindagi wahi jo chalti hai, ye gir ke hi sambhalti hai”
