Darrrrrrling Aankhon se Aankhein chaar karne do..   Leave a comment

A beautiful woman who over the course of thirty-five years, gets married seven times, goes on to kill all her seven husbands and is not found guilty! Very Intriguing! Vishal Bharadwaj’s latest movie 7 Khoon Maaf is a thriller based on Ruskin Bond’s short story Susanna’s Seven Husbands, stars Priyanka Chopra, Naseeruddin Shah, Irfan Khan, John Abraham, Neil Nitin Mukesh, Alexander Dyachenko, Annu Kapoor and Vivaan Shah.

Music Director: Vishal Bharadwaj , Lyricist: Gulzar

A brief Review:

‘Darling’ of Usha Uthup, Rekha Bhardwaj. This song is inspired by Russian folk song ‘Kalinka’ , brilliantly sung by Uthap/Rekha, it is clearly the most Popular song because of its uniqueness.

‘Bekaraan’ of Vishal Bhardwaj, is a soulful, soothing love song which has beautiful, poetic lyrics and is my favorite song of the album.

Bekaraan hai bekaraan; Aankhein bandh keejay na… Doobne lagey hai hum; Saans lene deejay na…

‘O Mama’ of KK and Cliton Cerejo , ooo.. Gulzar can even write lyrics for a rock song! The lines are catchy and KK as always is exceptionally brilliant.

Billi jaisi, aankhon wali ; Ik myaun si ladki… O’ mama, o’ mama.. :)

‘Awaara’ by Master Saleem, a well versed solo melancholic song describing nomadic existence. With lot of subtle variations Saleem has sung really well.

Tere Liye’ by Suresh Wadkar, a typical VB number: soft, tender, melodious and romantic. It has nice simple lyrics but was really amused to hear words like Tere liye kishmish chune, piste chune, tere liye..  Nevertheless, it is well written.

Dil Dil Hai by Suraj Jagan, another rock number that could have been much more impressive.

‘Yeshu’ by Rekha Bharadwaj, is an emotional prayer to Jesus, The music is dark and haunting which depicts Suzanne’s distressed life and her cry for help.

The Album is impressive and at times monotonous, lyrics are just simply awesome and the current album is another feather in VB’s musical cap.
