Justice to the poetry of legendary Gulzar has been done through the song Dilbaro. It is certainly a haunting number which plays out just before spy bride is leaving her country after marriage. Composition of the song is made by Shankar, Ehsaan and Loy. It has a folk touch which is really refreshing to hear without any doubt. Melancholic feel is evident when they drives through the highway. Lots of emotions are evoked at the time certainly.
Here, in the video we can see that father Rajit Kapoor is sending away his daughter Sehmat to spy on Pakistan in the garb of a bride. As a result, he may not able to see his daughter ever in life. The song has been sung wonderfully by Harshdeep Kaur along with Shankar Mahadevan and Vibha Saraf. Some element of Hindustani classical can be found with the song. For the song, Esraaj has been played by well known musician Arshad Khan and Tapas Roy can be found on the Rabab. Use of Rabab is especially noticed in the folk music of Kashmir while Esraj is prevalent in Northern India.
By looking at the video, we can tell you that Alia is just perfect as coy yet beautuful bride. Through her eyes, she has managed to converse a lot here. Through the lyrics of the song that says Ek Baar Phir Se Dahleez Paar Karade, different connotations can be found. Bidaai is teary affair always where a daughter leaves their parental house after marriage.
Dilbaro is certainly gem of a song. If you listen to the song few times then it may grow on you. Story of a Kashmiri girl will be told who becomes spy for India. Unsung patriots of country will be showcased. Release of Raazi is scheduled on 11th May.
