There are expectations from the audio of T-Series’ and Ellipsis Entertainment’s TUMHARI SULLU, reason being it is produced by T-Series! That’s about all! We need not elaborate how and why, by delving into T-Series’ glorious musical history.
Guru Randhawa proved lucky for T-Series with his chartbusting ‘Suit Suit’ (HINDI MEDIUM), and his ‘Ban Ja Rani’ (click here for lyrics) (co composed by Rajat Nagpal) appears yet another winner. The song is a refurbished version of Guru Randhawa’s super hit, ‘Tu Meri Rani’ and it hooks with its addictive light beats complete with finger snaps and soft musical background arrangements.
Tanishk Bagchi gets the opportunity to refurbish yet another iconic number, Laxmikant Pyarelal-Javed Akhtar’s ‘Hawa Hawai’ (Click here for lyrics) (MR INDIA). Tanishk has kept Kavita Krishnamuthy’s intoxicatingly exciting vocals intact and also the lyrics which together form the soul of this remix version. Shashaa Tirupati’s raps are just okay and there is too much of electronic sounds and beats.
The Tanishk Bagchi composed ‘Manva Likes To Fly’ (click here for lyrics) is a breezy, groovy, full of life, inspirational number rendered well by Shamali Kholgade. Vayu’s Hinglish lyrics are very apt and carry the whole essence of the movie which is all about women empowerment.
Amartya Rahut composed ‘Faratta’ (click here for lyrics) is nice, breezy number, that throws light on the character of the female lead and is sung with zest and vigour by Armaan Malik, with master Adityan chipping in with a lovable rap. Lyrics by Siddhant Kaushal are the highlight of the song, very interesting and funny too.
Soft, soothing, mellow and philosophical ‘Rafu’ (click here for lyrics), composed and written by Santanu Ghatak talks about life and the journey of a couple and how they deal with its ups and down. Ronkini Gupta (vocalist of music band, Khayaal-E-Jazz Projekt), does a good job with an emotive rendition. It’s almost an unplugged version with just a hint of guitar strums.
To conclude, the audio of TUMHARI SULLU, quite like HINDI MEDIUM does carry the spirit of the movie, which is essential but they do not quite hold attention after the first hear. The chartbusting ‘Ban Ja Rani’ and ‘Manva Likes To Fly’ are our picks but one expects more from a T-Series enterprise.
