PK (2014) movie music is out now. Music of the film is composed by super talented Shantanu Moitra of 3 Idiots, Lage Raho Munnabhai and Parineeta fame. It will be interesting to see whether he manages to deliver yet again, as monumental expectation are riding on him to give excellent music album this time again to listeners and maintain his good form. Also, Ajay-Atul and Ankit Tiwari have composed one track each. Lyrics are penned by Swanand Kirkire and Amitabh Varma. PK is one of the most awaited film of the year starring Aamir Khan, Sanjay Dutt, Anushka Sharma and Sushant Singh Rajput. So, without any delay let's do the music review of the film.
Music - Shantanu Moitra, Ajay-Atul and Ankit Tiwari.
Lyrics - Swanand Kirkire, Amitabh Varma, Ankit Tiwari.
Director - Rajkumar Hirani.
PK music album starts with Tharki Chokro. Music for this track is composed by talented Ajay-Atul. Song is on the line of folk based and absolutely peppy from word go. Song is sung by Swaroop Khan. He is at his ease and has sung pretty well. Video of the song is out and already track has gained momentum because of hilarious on screen antics of Sanjay Dutt and Aamir Khan combo. Lyrics are also first rated. Overall Tharki Chokro starts PK album with bang.
Nanga Punga Dost is the second track from the album. Song is sung by magical Shreya Ghoshal in her typical style. Music is composed by Shantanu Moitra and his stamp of music is written all over it. Lyrics of the song is actually hilarious with wording likes 'tinga tinga nanga punga dost' and 'ek boond bhi usne naa pee, par pk woh kehlaya tha' absolutely matches Aamir Khan avatar in PK. Video is still to be out and it is no doubt that it will be a riot once music video is released. Must listen. Already two songs into the film and we have two varied numbers in our hand.
Third track of the film is Chaar Kadam. Song is sung by Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal. This one is my personal favorite. Its always a sky high expectation when magical duo of Shaan and Shreya come together for a number. This one a full on romantic number. Give this track few hearings and without a doubt it will stay in your memory for long time. Kudos to Shantanu for composing such track. Chaar Kadam has everything to be one of the classic in coming days. Video of track is yet to be released and honestly I am eagerly waiting for it. Magical!
Love is Waste of Time video promo is already out and is ruling the hearts all over. Its another romantic number picturised on Aamir and Anushka. Magical duo of Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal is back with this track and they are just rocking. Music from Shantanu again is first rated and his stamp is written all over. Lyrics are hilarious again and kudos to the team. Overall Love is a Waste of Time is already a winner and will remain in heart for a long time. Must listen.
Bhagwaan Hai Kahan Re Tu is a solo number sung by Sonu Nigam. It is the 5th track of the album. From lyrics of the song it is about search of God. It is a slow number, but still soothing to ears. Definitely one can try to listen to this number and as it is pretty good. Sonu Nigam is at his ususal best with this song and he is in full command. Overall give it a try once and definitely few of you will definitely like this track if not all.
6th track of album is PK Dance Theme and it is nice to listen.
Dil Darbadar is the last track from the album. Music of the song is composed by Ankit Tiwari. Song is sung by Ankit himself. Ankit is one of the most talented music composer of recent times. So, there is huge expectation from this track. Honestly song is strictly ok considering the expectation from Ankit and also from an album like PK. Still track might be liked by niche listeners. Hope buzz of Dil Darbadar increase once after the video of the track is out. Give it a try once!
PK doesn't have any songs which is average or bad. All songs are more or less good which is fantastic and rarity. Every songs looks situational and should go with the flow of the film. There is no doubt at least 2-3 songs will be classic in coming days once film is released. Overall PK music is damn good and every one should listen to it. Yes, Shantanu Moitra has passed again with flying colors and another masterpiece from him again with PK.
My Pick - Chaar Kadam, Nanga Punga Dost and Love is a Waste of Time.
Minuses - Nothing (except little disappointed with Dil Darbadar.)
Ratings - 4/5.
