Excellent Songs only for Urdu/Hindu speaking people
30 May 2015 | by rehan-91612See all my reviews

The way I look at this movie is that A.R. Rahman produced some hits in his earlier movies but all of these super hit songs were only famous because of the music as the lyrics were (sorry to say) horribly incorrect, inconsistent and meaningless.

In this movie he proved his ability to direct music of a film with some out of the world lyrics which came from the pen of Mehboob Kotwal. Unfortunately, the point everyone miss to see is that "Music" was used very little and to preserve the quality & freshness of the lyrics. The actual magic is in the lyrics and spell caster in this instance was Mehboob Kotwal. Hats off to Mehboob and to A.R. Rahman for encasing it with such beauty that even today it sounds fresh to the ears.
