Film: “Lekar Hum Deewana Dil”
Composer: A.R. Rahman
Singers: Konakal-Mahesh Vinayakram , Suzanne D’ Mello, Jonita Gandhi , Hriday Gattani , A.R. Rahman , Shiraz Uppal , Tanvi Shah , Raghav Mathur , Shweta Pandit , Nakash Aziz
“Lekar Hum Deewana Dil” features Armaan Jain and Deeksha Seth in lead roles. It is the directorial debut of Imtiaz Ali’s brother Arif Ali.
The music album of the movie consists of six songs, but unlike Rahman’s other albums, this one fails to hit the right chord.
The album starts with “Khalifa”. Sung by Rahman, Shweta Pandit, Konakal-Mahesh Vinayakram, Suzanne D’ Mello and Hriday Gattani, this is a party number. It begins with a rap combined by an electric guitar. The song will give you a kick, and will make you want to wear your party shoe and dance along.
Next in line is “Maaloom”. Crooned by Nakash Aziz, Hriday Gattani and Jonita Gandhi, this one will remind you of songs from “Jaane Tu Yaa Jaane Na”. What make the song amazing is the beautiful lyrics mixed with some whistling and guitar.
“Alaahda”, a romantic number, is next in line. This heart-warming number is sung by Shiraz Uppal. His soothing voice and the beautiful lyrics will make you want to listen to this song over and over again.
Sung by Raghav Mathur and Tanvi Shah “Mawwali qawwali” is next up in the album. The song begins with African style drum beats. This one is a disastrous mix-and-match, by the time you will try and figure out the meaning of the song, it gets over.
“Tu shining”, crooned by Hriday Gattani, comes next. You can listen to this song once, but it’s not something you would like to hear over and over again. However, this song matches the storyline of the movie.
Last in the album is “Beqasoor”. Sung by Shweta Pandit and Nakash Aziz, this is a soulful track. Shweta has done an amazing job, and her voice mixed with Rahman’s composition make this song a bit dreamy.
All in all, “Lekar Hum Deewana Dil” album is a mix. There are some tracks which you would want to hear again, and then there are some which you will not want to hear ever. The main highlight of the album is Rahman’s “Khalifa”.
