Music: Ajay - Atul
Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Shreya Ghoshal, Sonu Nigam, Neeti Mohan, Mohammed Irfan, Chinmaya Sripada
Dharma Productions' Brothers is one of the most awaited releases this month. The film, which is an official remake of the Tom Hardy-starrer Warrior, stars Akshay Kumar, Sidharth Malhotra, Jackie Shroff and Jacqueline Fernandez. It's an emotional family drama about two estranged brothers, and their alcoholic father, against the background of MMA. The songs, especially, Mera Naam Mary, have been trending on the charts. Let's see how the whole album is like...
When Vishal Dadlani goes full-throated, the song becomes a definite must-hear. After impressing all with Bajrangi Bhaijaan's Selfie song, Vishal scores again with Brothers anthem by giving his all to the song. Though the song lasts around six minutes or so, the passion in the music doesn't make the length a boring matter! Go for it!
When Gaaye Ja begins, there is a slight AR Rahman touch to the proceedings, before Shreya Ghosal and her sweet mellifluous voice enters the scene. The song is really slow, but once again, Shreya amazes the listener by making this situational song such a great listen! Just for her lovely voice, you have put this song on a loop! There is a male version sung by Mohammed Irfan, which is equally good.
Sonu Nigam is back with Ajay-Atul after that haunting song in Agneepath, Abhi Mujh Mein Kahin. And he doesn't disappoint here at all! Giving him company here is Neeti Mohan, who complements him in well in this slow romantic number, just my kind! Even the lyrics are perfect and make you pay attention to the words! Easily, the best song in the album!
Mera Naam Mary
Like how they reinvented their own Kombadi Palali into Chikni Chameli for Agneepath, Ajay-Atul repeat their act for Brothers. This time the song is based on their own song from Jatra, Nach Le, to give us Mera Naam Mary, picturised on Kareena Kapoor Khan. Having watched the original film, Warrior, I have no clue how the item song fits into the scheme of things, but it's Bollywood, so anything can happen! The song is lively, and singer Chinmaya Sripada infuses enough spunk to the proceedings, but it lacks the chutzpah of a Chikni Chameli.
Brothers may not have a soundtrack that totally caters to the masses, with the exception of a Mary. But the songs are quite decent, with our pick being the Brothers Anthem and Sapna Jahan. Worth a listen!
