Movie Songs Review: Netaji Subhash: The Last Hero

Actors: Sachin Khedekar, Rajeshwari Sachdev, Rajpal Yadav, Sonu Sood, D Datta Music: A R Rahman Director: Shyam Benegal Lyrics: Javed Akhtar

1. Azadi: A R Rahman Jage hain ab sare log tere dekh watan Unche hain naron se ab ye zameen aur gagan Kal tak main tanha tha soone the sab raste Kal tak tanha tha par ab hain sath mere lakhon logo ki dhadkan dekh watan A typical A R Rahman music with high beats fully fit for the movie filming an era when India was planning to struggle for freedom. Lyrics: 3/5 Music: 3/5 Voice: 3/5 

2. Desh ki mitti: Sonu Nigam, Anuradha Sriram Mujhe yaad aati hai, mujhe yaad aati hai Apne desh ki mitti ki khushboo Mujhe yaad aati hai Kabhi behlati hai, kabhi tadpati hai Mujhe yaad aati hai apne desh ki mitti A slow, melodious, sweet song. Remembering country like one remembers his girl friend. This love for country for freedom fighters was just like that. Today we know only one meaning of Ishq & Love. Poweful lyrics by Javed Akhtar. Music: 4.5/5 Lyrics: 4.5/5 Voice: 5/5 

3. Durga Pooja: Rhythm No singers, just instrumental, all related to Durga Pooja. But if you listen to it, it fills some josh in you. Music: 3.5/5 

4. Ghoomparani: Sapna Mukherjee, Satyanarayanan Mishra Nindiya rani sapne de do, munne ke naino ko Sapno ki duniya mein hai, rang bhari duniya ye Tere honthon pe muskan hai A mix of hindi and bengali lyrics. Hindi I could understand, Bengali I could only guess it would be what she is singing in Hindi is repeating in Bengali. This is basically a lullaby and a sweet one. Lyrics: 4.5/5 Music: 4.5/5 Voice: 5/5 

5. Hum Dilli Dilli Jayenge: Hum dilli dilli jayenge, hum apna hind banayenge Subhash ka ye kehna hai, chalo dilii chal ke rehna haiThis is a group song. Again full of joshili voices and Rahman beats. Tells about the directions of bose to reach Delhi and get it out of the hands of Phirangis. Lyrics: 5/5 Group Voice: 3.5/5 Music: 4/5 

6. Jana Gana Mana National Anthem instrumental. Good to listen anytime anywhere. Full marks. I remember in olden days at the end of a movie in theatres, they used to play National Anthem and all used to stand up. Never came to know why it was stopped. Music: 5/5 

7. Kadam Kadam: Vijay Prakash Kadam kadam bdayeja, khushi ke geet gayeja Ye zindagi hai kaum ki, tu kaum pe lutayeja Again a joshila song telling to not to fear of your life, fight with the enemy and achieve your goals. Most of our parents would know this lyrics already. Used to be very popular in earlier generation schools, functions etc. Music: 4/5 Lyrics: 4.5/5 Voice: 4.5/5. 

8. Zikr: A R Rahman, Rafi, Shaukar Ali Zikr hai behtar nafrat se, zikr hai behtar seerat se Ruhe muhammad Allah hu hu Allah hu hu, la ilaha il lilah Har gul mein har shai mein Nijaad milti hai unko yakeenan karein jo Frankly speaking, listened to this song many times, but could not understand the words and meanings completely. Only message I could get is that it said about dropping the hatered among each other and fight together against the enemy. Music: 3/5 Lyrics: 2.5/5 Voice: 3/5 9. Ekla Chalo: Nachiketa Chakraborty, Sonu Nigam A well know song by ravindra nath tagore – ekla chalo ekla chalo. His song’s first lines have been used and then lyrics by Javed Akhtar has been added. Nachiketa: ekla chalo ekla chalo ekla chalo re Sonu: Tanha rahi apni rah chalta jayega Ab to jo bhi hoga dekha jayega Bojh kitna bhi ho mushkilon ka magar Na jhuka hai na jhukega ye sar Bazi par lagane ki khatir Ham jaan hatheli par laaye This means that even if others don’t come forward for the country, don’t wait, and don’t hesitate in fighting alone and get killed instead of living like this. Lyrics: 4.5 Music: 4.5/5 Voice: 5/5 In most of the songs trumpets, drums have been used, not in all songs only where appropriately required. Overall rating: 3.5/5
