Toilet- Ek Prem Katha Music Review: Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal and Sunidhi Chauhan add rural…

Akshay Kumar[1] and Bhumi Pednekar’s Toilet- Ek Prem Katha has been in news ever since it has been announced as it deals with the subject of sanitation and open defecation in India. It’s said to be a satirical take on Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s pet project Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. Going by trailer, the song will have a rustic touch to it. Here’s the music review of Akshay Kumar[2] and Bhumi Pednekar’s Toilet- Ek Prem Katha.

Hans Mat Pagli

When the music masters Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal come together for a song, it’s bound to be special and full of melodious notes. Hans Mat Pagli is no different and it’s romantic to the core. There is this very classical touch to the song.

Jabse mila hoon tujhse, Muskuraata rehta hoon, Jo bhi milta hai mujhse Sunata phirta hoon…Hans mat pagli pyar ho jaayega – lyrics by Garima Wahal and Siddharth Singh add to the beautiful notes of the song. Coming to the instrumental value of the song, it has the tunes of acoustic guitar, carnatic strings, flute and tabla.

Bakheda Bakheda – the song has a typical rustic vibe and has been sung by Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan. The song also has romantic connotations and you would fall in love with the lyrics.

Going by the lyrics, you can easily figure out that a partner is lovelorn and is missing his special one – Arey dil fakeer yeh thaan liyo, Ikk nayi lakeer ye maar liyo, Khud paar lagaaye aashiq beda haaye, Jag mein naa…ishq se bada bakheda! Instruments like drums, dholki and guitar does the rest of the job for the song. Gori Tu Latthmaar

Again Sonu Nigam has given us to fall in love with the tracks of Toilet: Ek Prem Katha. All the songs have that desi touch to it and well, Nigam has pulled off the song pretty well and Palak Muchhal has complimented Sonu through her powerful notes. It’s a fun number and lyrics by Garima Wahal and Siddharth Singh adds to the quirkiness of the song.

Subah Ki Train Subah Ki Train features the vocals of Sachet Tandon and Parampara Thakur.

Yes, every song has that rural touch and this song is no different. You would love the tunes of violin, tabla, dholki, flute and guitar. It’s the simplicity of the song which makes it relatable – you would get up in the morning and make a ginger tea – it’s that relatable.

If you are newly married, you would have a smile on your face while listening to the song. Toilet Ka Jugaad Toilet Ka Jugaad is not a part of the album but the filmmakers have used it as a promotional track.

The song reflects all the issues which are prevalent in the areas where open defecation is still practiced – from women being at risk of getting raped and of children dying of infection because of it. Sung by Akshay Kumar and Vickey Prasad, Toilet Ka Jugaad is one step ahead in favour of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan. The lyrics by Garima Wahal and Siddharth Singh make it even more relatable and the message is out and out straight – WE NEED TOILETS – in a way asking for true liberation.
