Jashn Bahara-Another Jewel in A.R Rahman's Crown!

A.R Rahman always rises like a phoenix time and time again when people start murmuring and say that he has exhausted his stuff. For A.R.R this mere doubt seems to be the fuel to exceed his own standards every now and then when such comments are uttered. I recently heard his songs from "Ada" and to be frank that sounded average and uninspired, going by his standards. The songs seemed to be more like the typical Hindi songs of the yesterday years. But I am always amazed by the amount of variations and colour he gives to his songs in 99% of his songs. The 1% of carelessness could be easily forgotten! He is amazingly gifted, no doubt. But he does lot of research and hard work on listening to world music which makes him up to date with the ever changing demands of time. He also gives ample respect to the genuine music lover. When he teams up with Javed Akhtar and the likes of Ashutosh Gowarikar or Subhash Ghai, he raises his standards by leaps and bounds and brings novelty to what ever he creates with them. The songs from Jodha Akbar are no different. I have attempted an amazing melody from this movie sung beautifully by Javed Ali. Curiously, Javed Ali sounds like Sonu Nigaam in the beginning of this song and then sounds like Naresh Iyer at some parts! The song also shows how A.R.R innovates and uses his library of sound samples and acoustic instruments to perfection. This song is characterised by the absence of any string tones compared to many of his other songs. The flute is also used sparingly! The ethnic instrument tones are in tune with the historic era that this film depicts. This song is ample proof for the fact that there is no substitute for melodious music, beautiful lyrics, acoustic tones and the beauty of the human voice! Only such songs from this era, will stand the test of time.

Your voice is very well suited for this song. The emphasis on the right words and softening of certain words.... very appealing! On the technical side, mixing is excellent.
