A 'Rock On' with Difference
Friday, January 9, 2009 • Hindi Comments

Electrifying our senses with Rock On, here comes grandiloquent combo of Farhan-Shankar Mahadevan-Ehasan-Loy-Javed Akhtar-Ritesh Sidhwani. Uh-huh! They're back in town swaying with enamoring melodies for Luck By Chance. Shankar-Ehasan-Loy; every time they strike a chord on their instruments; it's out and most splendiferous tunes that's churned out. On the buttons, Farhan Akhtar is worthy to be ennobled as 'Best Penny-pincher in Bollywood'. It's the perfect team that works the magical formulas of 'small outlays turning high gains'.  

More alike Rock On, this flick is expected to be a phenomenal piece with a prodigious motif. Perhaps, the promos have clanged for everyone's attention and there are lots more expected on air, prior to release of film.

The musical genres on each song are expressed with panache. Exactly, this happens to be highlighting trait of this album.

1.    Baawre - Tremendous coalition  of West 'n' Folk

Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Loy Mendonca, Ila Arun, Mumay Khan, Babu Khan, Mansoor Khan, Rajab Khan

Lyricist: Javed Akhtar

Yeah! The song carries resplendence on all panoramas of beats and vocalisms. An awe-inspiring tune that's sure to carry off your senses on the screen. Particularly, there aren't any complicated preludes and merely, the few fast-running notes on harmonium reoccurring throughout the song do enrich the caliber. Of course, altho' we've bunch of singers on the track, its Shankar Mahadevan rendering with a bossy style.

2.    Baawre (Remix) - Decorously brilliant

Well, the classy remix is what you heed on the second track. Call it 'a brilliant and decent piece' as techno beats blended to the previous number. Uh-huh, the harmonium piece is shifted to synth-bass suiting to the beats. Hats off to Sound Engineer Baylon Fonseca!!! He's perfect working on phonations.

3.    O Rahi Re - A distinctive touch by Shankar

Singers: Shankar Mahadevan

Lyricist: Javed Akhtar

Incisively, there happens to be few minor traces of 'Yeh Tumari Meri Battein' - Rock On. The beats often sound the same (play this interlude with the reference song. There's something interesting for you). 'A man's intrinsic feel' - penning lyrics on this motif, Javed Akhtar patches-up with poignant lines.  Mild beats and continuous running chords on guitars take us for an idyllic journey. The song would have been more exquisite sans beats too. Again, Shankar Mahadevan's vocalism adds onto the spotlighting quotients.

4.    Pyaar Ki Daastan - Vocalizers' show

Singers: Mahalakshmi Iyer, Amit Paul

Lyricist: Javed Akhtar

Starts off with gently-played fortepiano and Amit's voice on lead.. On the next few seconds, its 4/4beats of drum pads commixed. Duo singer's comely voice is patently pleasing. Perhaps, the beats could've been bit milder throughout the song.

5.    Sapnon Se Bhare - Turning spotlights on

Singers: Shankar Mahadevan

Lyricist: Javed Akhtar

Looks like, Shankar's so coveted to make up as he couldn't render a single song in Rock On!!! He's there with finesse on the tracks and 'Sapnon Se Bhare' isn't an elision. There's a classical touch on his vocalisms and in contrary goes the fast-techno beats. Synthesized instrumentations and slap-bass on lower octave from alpha-till-omega enhance the song on efficacious vistas. With promos already on air, the song is already a glare of publicity.

6.    Sooraj Meri - Merely frolicsome

Singers: Sunidhi Chauhan

Lyricist: Javed Akhtar

Naturally, Its bedazing to hear Sunidhi Chauhan on a melodious genre. On her bold voice for 'Dance Pe Chance', 'Beedi Jalaile', 'Dhoom Macchale' she transfixed everyone.  And again  pioneering on dissimilar notes, Sunidhi is up with a top-notching effort. Nevertheless, the beats aren't so entrancing and so does the song. Possibly, once-on-screens scenarios may quite switch over with adept picturing.

7.    Yeh Zindagi - Freshening up your senses

Singers: Loy Mendonca, Shankar Mahadevan

Lyricist: Javed Akhtar

Genuinely, splendorous lyrics and Loy's dainty charming voice makes 'Yeh Zindagi' so emblazoned. The song is sure to drive listeners with high enthuse and Javed Akhtar deserves grand round of applause..

On the whole, the melodies are novel of its kind with innovative touches andlyrics invigorating the senses. Fine! For those songs that didn't pretty get you amused, Carlos Catalan's cinematography is sure to work magical spells on the screen. Shankar-Ehasan-Loy spins their best for the wonderful lyrics of Javed Akhtar and 'Luck By Chance' is worth heeding repeatedly.

Verdict: Get going with colossal tunes
