Music Review - Zindagi Na Milegi Dobara

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy (S-E-L)  have come together with Lyricist  Javed Akhtar to create this very special track . The album kicks off with Dil Dhadakne Do. Sung by Joi Barua, Suraj Jagan and Shankar Mahadevan, it’s a typical feel-good number from S-E-L. The song is about enjoying life carefree, expressing yourself and breaking boundaries. While not really unique it is a nice creation. The Remix version is by DJ Shiva is a higher paced version of the same.


 Next up is Ik Junoon (Paint It Red).  Sung by Vishal Dadlani and backed up by Shankar Mahadevan, Ehsaan Noorani, Alyssa Mendonsa and Gulraj Singh, the song is very youthful.  There is a touch of funk in the track and makes it really fun.    The Remix version makes it a true dance number.


The third song Khaabon Ke Parinday brings in the soothing voice of Alyssa Mendonsa, joined much later by Mohit Chauhan. It’s a nice uplifting song. Mendonsa does the song complete justice and her fluid voice works wonderfully with the soft music. Chauhan’s entrance towards the latter part of the song is incorporated well into the song and adds a new dynamic to it.  


Senorita is the film’s most unique track.   The three male leads take to the microphone in this one. Farhan Akhtar, Hrithik Roshan and Abhay Deol, joined by Spanish singer Maria Del Mar Fernandez, make this an enjoyable number that is seductively fun. Akhtar’s lyrics are really cute.   A really fun number it sure will catch on.   The Senorita (Remix) by DJ Shiva is faster-paced and makes for a good dance track.


Shankar Mahadevan finally makes an appearance with Der Lagi Lekin.  A sad song but Shankar’s incredible voice always makes any song special.


Sooraj Ki Baahon Mein sung by Dominique Cerejo, Clinton Carejo and Loy Mendonsa is about embracing life and how wonderful the world is.  There is not much to write about this song though.


The album ends with Toh Zinda Ho Tum, a very mellow composition with Farhan Akhtar simply reciting poetry. The track is mostly instrumental with Akhtar coming in to recite the philosophical words written by lyricist (and his father) Javed Akhtar. Just like ‘Der Lagi Lekin’ this one too requires a certain frame of mind to listen and appreciate it.


S-E-L are always wonderful and this album will also probably be here to say.
