Jodhaa Akbar-Music

Jodhaa Akbar!! - We rarely get to hear such mesmerising Music


I am absolutely mesmerised by ARR composition in this Album that I am hardly able to frame words to appreciate the music in this album. Where to begin and where to end? The whole album is a total master piece in itself that you can never seperate the greatness of the freshness of voices, usage of instruments,quality of music from other.Wonderful!


The album has in total 5 songs with 2 instrumentals.My personal favorites being Jashn-E-Bahaara ,Azeem-O-Shaan Shahenshah .

Jashn-E-Bahaara
I like Jashn-E-Bahaara for Javed's voice and the apt usage of his voice by ARR.He is a true legend I must say. I was moved totally by this song that it made me travel with the song.. a feeling which has to be experienced rather than rendered in words..We generally comment on a song in Tamil "En Manasa Karaikaradhu". I had the same feeling with this song after " En Mel Vizhundha" from May Madam. I have gone crazy with this song that I get to listen to this song while at work :D!!Not to forgot mentioning about this song's Instrumental. Would you need a seperate proof that ARR is a genius!!

Azeem-O-Shaan Shahenshah
Yet another wonderful composition I should say from Rahman's Repository!!Truely Royal..I love the way the chorus renders "Jalaluddin Akbar".Stressing these words from the rest of the song but truley in pitch...wonderful..


In Lamhon Ke Daaman is good with Sonu and Madushree doing great job. There is some silence in the middle of the song but that silence makes you feel good.

Khwaja was a different one. I haven't heard of such kind of songs.Good one.ARR voice is a blend of magic and boldness.
Mann Mohana is a bhajan kind of. Good one. I liked Bela Shende's voice. What a Silky,sweet voice.


In total the whole album is a treat to hear. Expect good piece of picturisation for it!
Got to see the trailer of the movie as well.Wonderful..Hrithik was looking Awesome!!Could not resist watching the movie !!


I feel that the Movie would do commercially well!!

    So you have started reviewing as well ...
    ARR's music takes sometime to sink in ... this album did take that time, now even I am getting mad about listening to this music. My favorites are khwaje re ...and Azeem

    As you say with the visuals the songs look just terrific.

    Good one here ... way to go ...

    Smiles,

    Hi Ramya,
    What a nice blog title. I got to read two of your blogs - 'Jodhaa Akbar' and 'Namma ooru seemaatti'.
    To comment about Jodhaa Akbar.... Its a good movie... but u know it raised so many controversial topics. Hrithik and Aish did a applaudable job.
    ARR music... a slow poison I would say. First time when I hear his music will make me think whats special in this.... then like a poison mixing with the blood slowly, his music makes me dwell into it...
    I love 'Jashn-E-bahaara' and 'In lamhon ke' songs.... I hear them atleast 20 times everyday. Beautiful composition and I couldn't hold me saying about the singer Javed Ali's voice - what a soft voice?? makes me travel to my dream world everytime i hear his songs... I would say he is definitely gonna grab the best singer award this year.

    About your blog 'Namma ooru seemaatti' - nicely written good sense of humor... keep continuing.... waiting for part 2...
