Amidst all that raucous band baaja, Maara Re does have familiar elements that would make you wonder whether this is again VVC-Moitra. That said, the song does work in a way such cheering songs should, Aishwarya Nigam, Sonu Nigam and Ashish quite fittingly delivering Swanand Kirkire’s lines. A mildly Vaishali Samant-like Urmila Dhangar is the star of Mala Jau De as she does an impressive debut through her very Marathi style rendition of Guru Thakur’s lyrics. Pritam builds his arrangement quite smartly over the native template. The title song is super fun with a neat combination of things. While the composer creates a very groovy arrangement with some nice sprinkling of folk elements (loved that second interlude!), Shaan is flawless as he cuts loose all his energy. And add to that Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lyrics – this is bound to work big time among kids.
Shyamantan Das and the kids’ chorus are utilized beautifully in the poignant prayer-like piece Ae Mere Mann. The orchestral buildup around the soaring chorus is particularly fabulous. Good Night that follows next has a chord progression that faintly reminded me of the Love Story theme. That is not to take any credit off the lovely lullaby, Pritam gets it totally right with the orchestration, and a top class debutant (I am guessing) in Priyani Vani Pandit (Ok I guessed wrong it seems, Priyani sang the Reprise version of Dil Bekaraar in Players. Thanks Vini for the correction!). And for Rusy’s Theme the composer develops the East European motif in the previous song, with an accordion to lead the proceedings.
So the change of composer does indeed work in favor of Vidhu Vinod Chopra. And a Pritam soundtrack surprisingly devoid of hangovers! You must definitely take this Ferrari Ki Sawaari!
