Tones sound, and roar and storm about me until I have set them down in notes – Ludwig van Beethoven
This quote sums up the entire journey of Ajay Devgn when it comes to filming Shivaay. Produced under the banner of Ajay Devgn FFilms, Shivaay is said to emphasize on the human elements of Lord Shiva. The Golmaal actor has been a part of many controversies related to the big clash with Karan Johar’s Ae Dil Hai Mushkil. Now, the music is out and has all the right emotions which will work as a relief for Ajay in lieu of all the controversies. Choosing a powerful mix of artists like Mithoon, Jasleen Royal, Kailash Kher, Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan for the film’s music album is the best ploy employed by Ajay Devgn. The jukebox of Shivaay is finally out and here’s our music review for the film.
Bolo Har Har Har
The song starts with dark, intense and strong music and then you listen to powerful shlokas of Shiva. Composed by Mithoon, it is sung by Mohit Chauhan, Sukhwinder, Megha Sriram, Dalton and Badhsah. This almost three-minute-long song is an excellent mix of classic music and folk tune. The pitch will go higher, and so will your heartbeat! This will give you hallucinations for sure as the song has that power to take you to another world. And if you are a fan of Bob Marley’s Om Namah Shivay, you are bound to fall in love with this track! After listening to the track, you are sure that destruction is one of the main motifs of the film. Guitar riffs used in the song will give you an altogether an unheard experience!
Iss qadar tu mujhe pyaar kar, Jise kabhi na main sakoon phir bhula, Zindagi layi humein yahan, Koi iraada toh raha hoga bhala, Ki darkhaast hai yeh…
Darkhaast means request and here this song fits at the right place as after the destruction, you need love and peace. Arijit Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan’s vocals and Mithoon’s composition will take you to the stage of tranquility. And as William Wordsworth puts it : “Poetry is the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings: it takes its origin from emotion recollected in tranquility.” Well, this quote works best for the song. You cry, you smile and the song just plays in your head on a loop. Subtle guitar notes make the song flow in that consistency and drums and bass will give it a different feel. The song just spells romance and is melodious to the core!
By now, we all know Jasleen Kaur, thanks to Baar Baar Dekho. High on melody, the song is both sung and composed by Jasleen. It’s a soothing track and will make you call your father and say that, ‘I love you Dad’. You don’t know whether it’s her magical voice or the music that doesn’t tire you even after the long duration of 11 minutes. The song is on the lines of Tu Jo Mila from Bajrangi Bhaijaan and by the end of this track, you would just want to go and sleep in your father’s lap (even if you’re a 50-year-old). Everything about this track is just so perfect – guitar riffs, notes, rhythm and you just want to keep humming the track.
Tere Naal Ishqa
Composed by Mithoon and Kailash Kher, Tere Naal Ishqa is one of the best track of this music album. The lyrics are penned by Sayeed Quadri. Kailash pours his soul in the song and when he goes high pitch, you are left with no words. You just wonder that we have such artists which can keep you at the edge-of-the-seat. Tere naal ishqa mera, Tere naal ishqa mera, Lagda ibaadat warga, Tere naal ishqa mera mera…and it goes on and you feel like that you are flying freely and the music is your only elevation. From low notes to high notes to electronic guitar to drums, the song just takes you to places and thanks to Kailash!
This is the last song of the track and it’s again dark and intense. This is a slower version but suits well to the theme of the film. Jasleen Royal has an incredible talent and this song proves it.
Verdit: In a nutshell, this soundtrack is short and well-composed. The songs connect to each other and you just are left in praises for Ajay Devgn and Mithoon’s selection of the music and artists for the jukebox!
We give it 80 out of 100 on Pinkvilla meter.
