Lehember Hussainpuri’s Sadi Gali gives the album a storming start. This hit Punjabi pop song composed by RDB finds the first place in the album for its spunk and wedding mood. As Tanu Weds Manu revolves around a marriage, this song just fits in and is also the most apt number to promote the film.
Mohit Chauhan gets to belt out the romantic Yun Hi. This song will leave an impression in your mind because of its melody which is not diluted with the heavy use of instruments. The song has quasi-ghazal feel and can remind you of some of the hit soft numbers of the 80s. As for Mohit, the silvery voiced singer continues to get our rah-rah.
Sometimes we just ignore the rich folk culture of music in India; only when a film brings out the folksy tunes that we notice and feel wow. Rangrez, influenced by Rajasthani folk, wins you over with its earthy flavour. It’s a passionate rendition by Krsna, who has got strong vocals.
There is another version of the song Hey Rangrez Mere by none other than Wadali Brothers (Puranchand Wadali & Pyarelal Wadali). The song instantly grabs your attention because of the Sufi duo Wadali Brothers and like always they have delivered a power packed song with their brilliant vocals. A treat for the music aficionados!
The album adds another folksy gem with Piya crooned by Roop Kumar Rathod. This tender song floors us with Roop’s dramatic mix of amazing voice which gives the song a distinct romantic mood.
Now starts the battle between Kanpur and Delhi with Manu Bhaiya. The commonplace lyrics are almost graphic; you can go from Karol Bagh to Qutub Minar within seconds. The song is addictive because of its easy, rustic feel. If Sunidhi Chauhan gets to sing the entire song, the chorus has got the singers Ujjaini, Rakhi Chand, Vivek Naik, Manjeera and Niladri Debnath. Masses can easily relate to this track and that’s what makes it a winner in the album.
Mika makes us forget everything and sing the crackling number Jugni with him. Lyrics of the song in praise of a bold lassie are noteworthy, and make the song a fun to hear. To get into the groove listen to the song. Jugni naughty hai!
Tanu Weds Manu is not like the other Bollywood albums we get to hear now and then. The treatment of the film is different though it’s a masala comedy with cheerful faces and funny dialogues. The songs do full justice to the marriage and masti theme of the movie. There is nothing superfluous about the songs, they lack mush and don’t sound stiflingly romantic. But the diverse range of tracks has one similarity; all are earthy in feel and thus are very endearing.
