Shreya Ghosal, Tony Kakkar Blend Bollywood Romance With Dark Tragedy
MUMBAI, (IANS) – Singers Shreya Ghoshal and Tony Kakkar have released their new song ‘Baarish Ke Aane Se’, and it sure is one catchy romantic piece which combines radiance with tragedy, as it pairs up with fairy tale style of Bollywood with the bitter reality of doomed love.
The two singers really shine, managing to create a very romantic mood which boasts of a thundering love for the ages, but rain and love don’t always mingle. That is the case with ‘Baarish Ke Aane Se’ as what is a very powerful and true love also has a dark tragedy.
Shreya Ghoshal’s voice has been laced with some electronic samples while Tony Kakkar’s voice has not. This creates a contrasting effect between their already significantly different styles. Factoring into the vocals is the musical composition of Tony Kakkar who has kept things very simple, but also rooted enough so that the instrumentation complements the vocals.
As there is a positive radiance emitting from the song, the voice of these two is pleasant, elegant, soothing, and very catchy, particularly at the chorus. Carrying a very typical Bollywood flavor, there is enough masala here to appeal to every listener.
The tragic part comes in later as the song turns darker from its initial exuberance, showing that not every love has the happiest ending. Apart from being totally indicated by the audio, the music video also leaves little room for doubt.
As actors Manisha Rani and Parth Samthaan essay the role of two lovers who elope, their love was not exactly going to be very happy. As they run away and are enjoying their run in each other’s company, they get attacked with Parth being the clear target.
Almost dead from the beating, while its raining Parth saves Manisha from getting killed by killing her attacker first. Wounded, the two are traumatized but nonetheless embrace each other amidst the pouring rain, and still have the resolve to keep running.
