yea yea i know that i m too late with this review. 😛 but, the feeling of reviewer inside me always tells me to JUSTIFY my review ehehe…well, its not like i m a big music lover/critic/ singer/composer nd bla bla.. things were just came in my mind via ears,and that’s the best thing i consider for REVIEWing the music…
so,lets start with the music of Rockstar. Hmmmmm, rahman has come up with 14 tracks. Mohit Chauhan has given his voice in 9 tracks out of them. Well, simultaneously, Ra.One has been released so comparison of both is done on various platforms. But, according to me, music has an impact on story and vice versa. Ra.One songs are new experiments that can be accepted, but it seems that Rockstar is more dominating over here because in movie, songs leads the story as well as they are interwoven with the screenplay. If you have seen Ra.one as well as Rockstar, you can easily trace out.
2nd thing, theme of the movie is also important for composing music. Rahman can mix the music with the film because he composes his music with synchronizing the script and that’s the reason, we don’t bore while watching movies.[FYI-This art was followed by great Lt. Naushad saab too.] Famous track of Sadda Haq, Jo bhi me kehna chahu…shows internal suffocation while compromising with the surroundings. Irshad kamil has written lyrics for this film and i must say, he must have written on MS-Word and not on the paper otherwise paper could have caught into fire. 😉
If you listen only music and not see the story, you can lead to Ra.One because its presentation in music is nice, while in Rockstar, U might caught into the feeling that it’s too noisy. But, one thing that is noticeable is that Rockstar tracks are having dark undercurrent feeling. Feeling of betrayed by yourself, your surroundings. While in Ra.one, joy is there. And the Indian Dil is always looking upon little joy-pot even if having so many problems with our self or with the system.
Review Cut- If you want to search yourself, Listen Rockstar. And if you want a party, play Ra.One 😛
