Amol Gupte, who is currently busy with his directorial venture Hawa Hawaai, will be seen contributing in various other ways to the film. The director has turned composer and singer in the film, the dominant theme of which is dreams and aspirations.
“I have always had a penchant for words and I felt that I could contribute to the film in many other ways. Yes, it is true that I have penned all the songs in Hawa Hawaai and turning lyricist was surely a fantastic feeling. Some of the songs in the film are, Sapno ki ginti, Sar utha ke jee.
Every song has an important message,” mentioned Gupte. Interestingly, Gupte has also donned the hat of a composer and singer for a song called Chule ke angarey, which explores the difficulties faced by an individual who dreams of meeting his goals and achieve the impossible. The director stated that the song has already been recorded and he is extremely happy with the way it has turned out. The other songs in the album are composed by Hitesh Sonik, who had worked on the background score of Kai Po Che last year.

Madhuri Dixit Nene, Anubhav Sinha, Soumik Sen and Mushtaq Sheikh came together for the music launch Gulaab Gang last week. The album, released by Benaras Mediaworks and T-Series, was launched in the interiors of Varanasi, in order to reflect the essence of the film. Hundreds of people were seen sporting gulaabi (pink) caps, as they cheered for Dixit Nene and Chawla. The film’s music is composed by Sen, who is a self confessed fan of Kishore Kumar. The album promises to be a mix of hard hitting and rhythmic dance numbers, that will celebrate the power of women. Produced by Sinha, Gulaab Gang is scheduled to release on March 7.

Maahi ve

Mesmerising tunes Highway

Soulful, mesmerising and magical— three words that best describe A.R. Rahman’s composition, Maahi ve, from Highway. It’s a solo number sung by Rahman and we must say, he has crooned this one to perfection. A romantic number with interesting contemporary beats; Maahi ve perfectly fits into the theme of journey in Imtiaz Ali’s film. Rahman’s husky, yet strong voice packs a punch in this song, making it one of the key highlights of the album as well. Irshad Kamil’s wonderfully penned lyrics has some heartwarming lines, like Tu saath hai, toh din raat hai, Parchhaaiyan batlaaye.
As a composer too, Rahman has done a brilliant job of bringing together the perfect tunes, especially the use of piano. The Rahman-Kamil combination works wonders for this song, easily making it one of the best soft romantic numbers we have heard so far this year.
