Badlapur is a tiny album that packs a massive punch. Let’s check out what the talented duo of Sachin – Jigar has in store for us this time.
Jee Karda by Divya Kumar is the song that really stood out even in the trailer of Badlapur. It is a heavy, powerful number that beautifully brings out the angst and pain of the protagonist who has lost everything in his life. It reminds us of songs like Aao Na from Haider and Aur Ho from Rockstar. This is a masterful number by Sachin- Jigar and easily one of the best tracks we have heard this year. There is a heavier rock version which takes things to a whole new level though some may find it a bit too heavy for their liking.
Jeena Jeena is the classic Atif Aslam song – a sweet, romantic ballad. It has a certain tonal shift which may divide audiences but it still makes for a change from the usual romantic songs which seem to have become the norm these days. There is a faster-paced remix version which does not really match up to the original.
Judaai is yet another brilliant track by Sachin – Jigar and it benefits from the vocal talents of Rekha Bharadwaj and Arijit Singh. The beautiful blend of Heer with some contemporary sounds underscored by some very mellow percussions makes this a song you simply must listen to on loop.
It’s albums like Badlapur that make us wish all films had few brilliant songs instead of a whole bunch of mediocre ones. This brilliant album by Sachin – Jigar offers three absolute gems raising our expectations from the movie itself.
