Vibhu Virender Puri, an FTII graduate has come up with this unique untold and hence unknown story about Shivkar Bapuji Talpade, a man who is said to be the actual inventor of world’s first plane much before the invention done by Wright Brothers who are officially called the inventors of Plane. It is the debut film of Vibhu as director, writer and lyricist. Music has been given by a debutante Mangesh Dhakde, Rochak Kohli, Ayushmann Khurrana and Vishal Bhardwaj.

Lyrics: Vibhu Virender Puri; Music Label: T-Series
1. Hawaizaada Dil – Singer: Rochak Kohli; Music: Rochak Kohli
The carelessly flowing composition is actually the highlight of the title track which is Rochak Kohli’s first song as singer with the voice that sounds like an appropriate mixture of the voice of Mohit Chauhan and Ayushmann. Rochak has set the arrangements very alive with whistle and backing vocals ornamenting the track and Guitar being the leader, successfully impresses the listeners. The drawback is just that it grows on you after listening multiple times and not gets carried with you in the first attempt. Give it few chances to be liked by you.
2. Daak Ticket – Singers: Javed Bashir, Mohit Chauhan; Music: Rochak Kohli
Rochak gets much amazingly better in his next track which has a lovely tune and the playfully played keherwa rhythm beautifies it even more. But what stands out is the lyrics by Vibhu Puri. If you clearly know what the film is about, you’ll flatter the way the lyrics has been written. Each line tells you Mr. Talpade’s passion for inventing the Plane. The lyrics seem to be depicting that the song happens after the invention of Plane or just before the completion. Mohit Chauhan is outstanding and so is the Flute that appears everytime in the line Daak ticket jaari hogi. An adorable creation!
3. Maazaa My Lord – Singers: Mohit Chauhan, Neeti Mohan; Music: Mangesh Dhakde
The song kicks off with splendidly played Accordion that itself indicates that you are going to find something special. Mohit superbly delivers yet another applauding performance and Neeti gets the most melodious portion of the song which makes you remember the black & white 50s songs. Vibhu here too is fabulous with the writing. Mangesh has used the Goanese flavor which is very intriguing. Fascinatingly good.
4. Dil-E-Nadaan / Dil-E-Nadaan (Reprise) – Singer: Ayushmann Khurrana / Ayushmann Khurrana, Shweta Subram; Music: Ayushmann Khurrana; Lyrics: Mirza Ghalib
Generally, Ayushmann’s songs are recognized by the typical way of playing Guitar, but here he has quite intelligently composed Ghalib’s popular poem which is already used many times before with completely different notes, in a poppy way and fused it with Ghazalion texture using Sitar and Santoor in the first and second interlude respectively with Tabla being the consistent supporter. The reprise version is even more poppy where he has replaced the instruments with beats which is also very appealing. Shweta’s brief rendition of aankh ka dariya in the Reprise just makes it more lovable. She sounds very similar to Shilpa Rao, that’s what I noticed. A youth/mass appealing approach of Ghalib.
5. Udd Jayega – Singers: Sukhvinder Singh, Ranadeep Bhasker; Music: Mangesh Dhakde
Apart from proving to be meaningful for the film, it also has nice inspirational lines which fit into every aspect of our life. The Hans has been metaphorically presented as the Plane which he had invented as well as Mr. Talpade himself or his dream. The orchestration is good and has given a devotional approach to the song. Sukhvinder, as always, is fabulous with partner Ranadeep. Mangesh scores in this too!
6. Dil Todne Ki Masheen – Singer: Rekha Bhardwaj; Music: Vishal Bhardwaj
Vishal Bhardwaj has come up with the most rocking track of the album. A lavani number rendered by who better than his wife Rekha Bhardwaj with her typical salty vocals. What I liked most about the song is the beats which Vishal has put in the hook line. Amazing beats which are so well mixed that everytime they come, you get a smile on your face. Antara is impressive and so is the chorus. A Killlller by Vishal Bhardwaj!
7. Yaadien Gatthri Mein – Singer: Harshdeep Kaur; Music: Mangesh Dhakde
Don’t excite yourself much by seeing Harshdeep’s name as it’s just another much shorter version of Udd Jayega which is handled enchantingly by Harshdeep. Mangesh has kept Violin orchestra in background with constant humming sound that is sounding relishing to ears but we wish it would be a little longer. Short but damn soothing!
8. Turram Khan – Singers: Papon, Ayushmann Khurrana, Monali Thakur; Music: Rochak Kohli
Rochak Kohli has actually showed his creativity now with this album. He goes creatively amazing in this track as well with Papon leading it. It’s far from what we listen regularly in Bollywood yet it goes well with ears having Banjo creating the atmosphere of uniqueness and happiness. Ayushmann and Monali each have got just a line to sing which doesn’t have much relevance though changes the mood delightfully for a very short period of time. Lyrics are again clearly depicting what would be happening in the film. A well-attempted creativity.
9. Teri Dua – Singers: Wadali Brothers, Lakhwinder Wadali, Harshdeep Kaur, Ravindra Sathe, Ranadeep Bhasker, Sukhwinder Singh; Music: Magesh Dhakde
Another variant of Udd Jayega which has a Sufi approach, Wadali Brothers aptly being on board, has made the Sufi atmosphere stronger. With Harmoniums, Tabla and the utterly well-managed chorus and arrangements, the song sounds more beautiful. Vibhu has changed the lyrics for good and the ensemble voices are creating a strong impact which is again for good. The Sufi variant of Udd Jayega, better in some aspects.
You hardly get to hear so much of creativity with melody in a single album! Rochak Kohli, Mangesh Dhakde, Ayushmann Khurrana, Vishal Bhardwaj and Vibhu Virender Puri along with the blessings of Mirza Ghalib, deliver one of the best albums of 2015!
