"Raanjhnaa" - Kicks off with Jaswinder Singh singing a high pitched intro accompanied with Shiraz Uppal captivating to the further level of the track. The dhol mixed beat with few luminous violin strokes added a classical flavour to the track which was extremely catchy from the hook to the flow.
"Banarasiya" - Banarasiya is an classical disparity filled track sung by the well known singer Shreya Ghosal. The diverse variations in the track were radiant and should totally appreciate Shreya for an vivid approach. The typical arrangements exhibits the composition level from Rahman.
"Piya Milenge" - An inspirational song filled with few classical chorus librettos and arrangements. The groovy electro sound surrounded throughout the song were delightful. The sufi sound carried out by the KMMC Sufi Ensemble were of top notch. Will definitely draws you back to the days of "Yun Hi Challa" from Swades.
"Ay Sakhi" - Ay Sakhi congregates a group of four female singers who dispense an amusable droll classical ballad. Slightly reminded me of Banarasiya again and may profound well when we watch it with the movie.
"Nazar Laaye" - A simple chill out love ballad. Rashid Ali sole vocals adds a unwinding vibe to the track. The guitar riffs and kick back drum beats were pleasant and enjoyable during the course of the song. A perfect rainy day listen.
"Tu Mun Shudi" - Fresh'n up with his latest chartbuster "Challa" from JHTJ. Rabbi enthralls with his stirring energy filled punjabi slang. Rahman's chorus and the sinew arrangements fascinates the listener for a musical narrative.
"Aisa Na Dekho" - An sluggish nippy composition from Rahman and his squashy vocals enthuse the listener to a drippy vibe. The simple and less arrangements used definitely extravaganzas the style of Rahman in composing soppy tracks.
"Tum Tak" - The recent chartbuster "Tum Tak" edifies the vocals from Javed Ali which reminds me his previous songs. The conventional orthodox vibe of the song were supported well with Keerthi Sagathia's significant hook and were euphonious, easy on the ear.
Finally, Raanjhnaa's soundtrack is a sheer classic. It interprets the emotional state of the individuals with its sonic vividness. Its not just a every day album, few listens will definitely dwell you deep into he album. Yet another musical extravaganza from Rahman.
