Music Review - Aiyya


(This article is sponsored by Sounds Of India)

Amit Trivedi, a name associated with the musical success of women-centric theme flicks like AISHA and ENGLISH VINGLISH has given the music for Aiyya starring Rani Mukherjee. Amitabh Bhattacharya, the master wordsmith is the lyricist and together to deliver a fine musical comedy

'Dreamum Wakeupum' is a hilarious Tamilian musical funk comes with a satirical thumps, sensuous vocals and cheeky lyrics.   Soumya Rao's outrageously seductive tones in a typical South-Indian accent suit the mood to hilt . Trivedi's has done a great job capturing sounds of typical Carnatic musical instrumentals ('mridangam', 'ghatam', 'thavil' etc)  to deliver a penchant South Indian musical feel. Amitabh Bhattacharya's sassy lyrics ('Heart beatnum dhol peetnum, Love lust double kasht bada dheetnum, Body heatnum hot seatnum, Calling fire brigade bhi defeatnum, Same to sameum dil me utarum, Top to baseum kama sutram...) are humorously tongue-twisting .  

 'SAVA DOLLAR (LAVNI)' is yet another Marathi folk-based tracks which is a favorite musical genre among Mumbaikars,   'Sava Dollar' brings out the earthen Marathi folksy 'lavni' feel.  Sunidhi Chauhan is the chosen voice to deliver out varied funny aspiring shades of making big in the film world in articulately loud hilarious punches.  For all Marathi folk music lovers, this one is a pure delight and should be one promising factor in accentuating box-office prospects of this laugh-riot. 

Shakira stylized 'belly-dancing' is next on cards. In “Age Bai'. Shalmali Kholgade's shimmer 'n' silken rendition oozes sensuality and so is Monali Thakur's added feminine verve and together they team up splendidly to deliver out a fervently sensual track.   To add ample dosages of sobriety and modesty in this hip-shaking comical ride, there are sugary 'n' simple suave tones of Shreya Ghoshal to enchant in 'Mahek Bhi'.   Shreya's slender and soft voice is simply superb. Overall a pleasant-sounding situational number that should strike chords with audience's sensibilities.

Sneha Khanwalkar  has helped compose ‘What to do'.   Amitabh Bhattacharya's impish voice joins Sneha Khanwalkar and together they enjoy this track and offer many frolicsome light-moments'

'Wakda', the last offering of the album, comes more like a story-telling fable, where all the happenings and occurrences of this light-hearted comical entertainer comes in 'easy-to-ears' wordings. Amit Trivedi's expressive voice narrates it all and comes like a 'marriage celebration' invitation and success of the love-communion of two diverse cultured lovers. It comes with a blend of Marathi cum Tamil instrumental works and tries to please with their peppy sounds and funky sounds, overall an audible situational track that might make its flashy appearance in the ending title of the film.  

Aiyya is a fun track worth a listen.
