Shaurya Music Review

Listening to the music album you can feel that Samar Khan’s second movie Shaurya, is not one of those typical Bollywood movies depicting Indian army’s undauntable patriotism and fighting spirit while fighting their ARCHENEMY Pakistan. The movie is different from the other movies of its genre. There are six songs in the album.

Title: Shaurya

Music Director: Adnan Sami, Surendra Sodhi

Lyrics: Javed Akhtar, Jaydeep Sarkar

Singers: Shah Rukh Khan, Adnan Sami, Sunidhi Chauhan, Udit Narayan, Abhijeet, Kunal Ganjawala.

Shaurya Kya Hai

Singer: Shah Rukh Khan

Lyrics: Jaydeep Sarkar

This is a like a speech explaining the meaning of the word “Shaurya.” Since, it is a movie about the army, listeners should expect a voice that exerts strength, and strong will; kind of “Angry Man” Amitabh Bachchan voice but Shah Rukh gives an entirely different treatment to this speech. His voice sounds like an ordinary day to day person but infuses more thoughtfulness in between the lines.

Dheere Dheere

Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan, Adnan Sami

It is a soft romantic song. No loud music, no catchy rhythm, very simple and serene and this is what makes the song very appealing. It reminded me of ‘Palkein Jhukaao Na’ from Sehar (2005). This song has the same feature. Adnan Sami, and Sunidhi Chauhan did a great job. I am used to hearing Sunidhi’s voice in disco, hip-hop track and high pitched tracks. This song is not high pitched but Sunidhi’s voice creates the ideal romantic environment. This is the kind of song that you would like to hear time and time again.

Dosti Kya Hai

Singer: Udit Narayan, Abhijeet

This song is picturized on Rahul Bose and Javed Khan celebrating their friendship in the movie. In Bollywood, these kinds of songs have very light tune. The music generally creates a sense of fun and comic. However, this is an exceptional track. Instead of giving hunky dory type of tune, Adnan makes the music rock based with electric guitar tunes and drumbeats. Experienced singers like Udit Narayan and Abhijeet carried out the song beautifully. The music will evoke an emotional feeling about friendship.

Ghabra ke Dar Dar Ke

Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan, Adnan Sami

The song may not be enjoyable when you are watching the movie but it is an ideal song to play in bars and pubs. Sunidhi once again creates magic with her voice. The lyrics is very energizing. The over all techno beat adds up to the flavor and mood of the song.

Jaane Kyun Jaaneman

Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan

The second item song of the movie. The prelude would give you a feeling of the 70’s ‘Saturday Night Fever’ but a bit more fast paced. The song will immediately make you tap your feet and shake your head. A catchy number, good to hear and the music is groovy. Once again, Sunidhi Chauhan proves that she is made to sing these types of songs.


Singer: Kunal Ganjawala

Remember, Tom Cruise’s Top Gun soundtrack sound track “Danger Zone” by Kenny Loggins or Lakshya’s ‘Lakshya’ by Shankar Mahadevan? This song has the same features. A motivational song with hard hitting lyrics describing toughness and fighting spirit, the rock music will instantly energize you. When you are exercising, this type of music will boost up your energy.

Overall, Adnan Sami has presented us with some good music. My personal favorites are- Dheere Dheere, Jaane Kyun Jaaneman, Shaurya Kya Hai, and Shaurya.
