Film: “Dedh Ishqiya”; Music Composer: Vishal Bhardwaj; Singers: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Rekha Bhardwaj, Pandit Birju Maharaj, Sukhwinder Singh, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Master Saleem, Shahid Mallya and Jazim Sharma; Rating ****

The music album of director Abhishek Chaubey’s forthcoming film “Dedh Ishqiya”, a sequel to the 2010 movie “Ishqiya”, has once again proved composer Vishal Bhardwaj’s excellence.

The movie, which features Naseeruddin Shah, Madhuri Dixit, Arshad Warsi and Huma Qureshi in the lead role, boasts of seven tracks, including a remix.

The album begins with “Horn Ok Please”. A peppy number, it’s sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Yo Yo Honey Singh. The song is surely different from the other numbers of Honey Singh, but he adds his magic to the track with his rap in the middle. Sukhwinder’s voice as usual gives it a Punjabi flavour. The song will remind you of “Ibn-e-batuta” that was sung by Sukhwinder and Mika Singh.

The second song, “Dil ka mizaaj ishqiya”, is the title track and is a heart touching, romantic number. Captivating lyrics combined with the soothing voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, the song slowly grows on you. It will not just leave you wanting to fall in love, but will make you feel like a 16-year-old in love.

The third track, “Zabaan jale hai”, is a song that will remind you of ghazals sung in the late 1990s. Khan’s vooice has been mixed well with the guitar to give it a retro effect. The lyrics, “Na bolun main toh kaleja fuke, jo bol dun toh zabaan jale hai”, are about a lover who is unable to express his feelings.

“Hamari atariya” comes fourth in the album. The song will take you back to the “mujra” era. The folk lyrics are presented well by Rekha Bhardwaj and what adds to it is the effect created by the tabla. The guitar is also used in the song so that it can match up with today’s generation.

Well it’s the remix era, so the fifth track is the remixed version of “Dil ka mizaaj ishqiya” by DJ Angel. Unfortunately, the song loses its effect and does not sound good to the ear.

The next track is “Jagaave saari raina”, a perfect example of a classical song. If just Rekha’s melodious voice, combined with tabla and sitar was not enough, the song also has an alaap by Pandit Birju Maharaj.

The last song is “Kya hoga”. It’s a qawwali with the lyrics “Dil to diya hai, jaan bhi de de, aur nazrana kya hoga”. It begins with an alaap and is sung by Shahid Mallya, Master Salim and Jazim Sharma.

All in all, “Dedh Ishqiya” is a complete package. The album slowly grows on listeners and is a must hear.
