After delivering exceptionally good music in their past films – ‘Rockstar’ and ‘Highway’, the three creative minds – Imtiaz Ali, A R Rahman and Irshad Kamil are back together to blow their audiences away with their tracks for upcoming film, ‘Tamasha’ starring Deepika Padukone and Ranbir Kapoor.
Imtiaz, Rahman and Irshad were recently at a baithak (music sitting), where they celebrated their melodies and heart-melting lyrics. At the baithak, the trio played out the audio of the songs one by one and spoke about them. They took questions and finally it became a casual and free-wheeling chat about the forthcoming release, with everyone agreeing that music does in fact last longer than films.
Lyricist Irshad Kamil said that he’s never he had such freedom to write lyrics before that present human emotions in such different flavours.
‘Tamasha’ features nine varying tracks, but the highlight of the album is A R Rahman’s whimsical yet outstanding compositions. This album surprises with a Mika song for Rahman (Heer toh badi sad hai), makes you hum with a local vocal number (Wat wat wat) and send your mood soaring with the operatic, grand Sukhwinder song (Chali Kahani) and “the soul of the film” in Rahman’s own voice (Tu koi aur hai).
Tamasha’s first released song, ‘Matargashti’ by Mohit Chauhan, has already become quite a hit.
“Heer toh badi sad hai”, which will release on Saturday, will feature the peppy voice of Mika with a soothing blend of Rahman’s music under the direction of Ali.
“Rahman sir came up with Mika’s name. I knew that something unusual is going to happen now. It was the quickest recording in the album. We had a lot of fun. Hope the audience has the same experience,” Imtiaz Ali said.
The song will feature Ranbir Kapoor and Deepika padukone swinging to the tunes made by the talented trio.
While ‘Tamasha’ releases on October 16, the film will hit screens worldwide on November 27.
