After a day long buzz on the internet, the 'Hawayein' track from Jab Harry Met Sejal has lived up to its hype. Composed by Pritam, the song washes over you likes a breath of fresh air. The purity of its lyrics,the music and the vocals leave a soothing aftertaste. 

A soft soothing romantic number requires little choreography. The song follows Harry (Khan) and Sejal (Sharma) as they experience Europe while enjoying and discovering their own chemistry, and nature of love. 

The earlier track, 'Safar', was a philosophical journey, but Irshad Kamil turns on the romance with the soothing lyrics. Pritam’s majestic music and Arijit Singh’s soulful voice enhance the composition further.  

While 'Safar' was a catchy elevating track, it is with 'Hawayein' that Pritam delivers a stunner. The smart use of the tabla in the antara (second stanza of the composition) add texture and depth to the composition. 

Arijit Singh and Pritam combined with style in Jagga Jasoos (2017) and Ae Dil Hai Mushkil (2016). While the 'Hawayein' song is not as good as Arijit's rendition of 'Channa Mereya' or the 'Ae Dil Hai Mushkil' title track, the singer delivers the melody with pomp. The song is great example of how a decent poem can be turned into a good number with excellent music and fine singing.
