Song by Song: music review, Guzarish (Ghajini)

Last two months of this year are certainly going to be interesting. Salman Khan's Yuvvraaj, Shahrukh Khan's Rab ne Bana di Jodi, and now Aamir Khan's Ghajini. It's just absolutely wonderful. Especially in terms of music.

It rarely happens with AR Rehman that two movies with his music are being promoted at the same time. This time it's not just happening, but it's happening on big scale. Songs from Salman Khan's Yuvvraaj have not even passed their peak and you can listen to Ghajini.

Well, here I'm going to give you a review of the only song I have got from Ghajini. The song is called 'Guzarish' and is sung by no-Sonu-Nigam and Sonu Nigam. I mean, it's Javed Ali and Sonu Nigam together. The problem with Javed Ali is that you think it's Sonu Nigam and then you think it's not. It's the most effective way to identify him. But confusion comes in when Sonu Nigam is also there as he was in Nagada (Jab We Met).

Anyways, the song has some wonderfully simple and simply wonderful music by Rehman and I very much hope you'll be humming the track after listening to it once or twice itself. The song is the sweet romantic type quite like O ri Chhori of Lagaan, though the lyrics are not that good as of the latter. Actually the lyrics aren't bad but the name of Prasoon Joshi gives your expectations quite a rise which isn't completely matched with this song.

At the same time, one quality of the lyrics is their simplicity. 'Tu Meri adhuri pyaas pyaas, tu aa gayi man ko raas raas, ab to tu aaja paas paas' are really simple and you can remember the song even when yo listen to it for the first time. In short, the song is quite addictive as Rehman grips us all once again.

Hope we see more magic from Rehman and Prasoon in further songs of the movie.
