The first song from Vikramaditya Motwane's superhero film captures the freedom, fun, and aspirations of a rising generation X.
Bhavesh Joshi Superhero song: This 'Tafreeh' encourages you to go live fully
Mumbai - 23 May 2018 17:56 IST
Composer Amit Trivedi can always be trusted to come up with soundtracks that are both commercial, and experimental in their style. With 'Tafreeh' in Bhavesh Joshi Superhero, Trivedi delivers a smooth, inspiring track that makes the wait for monsoon worth it. Featuring Harshvardhan Kapoor and his band of brothers, the song offers a glimpse into the fun life of the youngsters before they are forced to rethink their priorities.
The visuals of the song capture a Mumbai wrapped in monsoon magic. With the symbolic dark clouds hovering, the youngsters carry on in their own careless ways. From protest marches to football kickabouts in their backyard, they treat everything as a game. As the trailer suggests, this completely changes with the arrival of the political underworld which tries to suppress their innocent attempts at procuring justice.
The song is composed, and sung, by Trivedi. It has Trivedi's distinct touches of a soft rock ballad, backed by Amitabh Bhattacharya's wonderfully articulate lyrics. As the visuals of the lighthearted adventures unfold, Bhattacharya conveys the message of the temporary nature of life, and the need to enjoy the moment 'tafreeh' through his lyrics.
Trivedi builds the tempo of the song, from its initial melody to a heavy rock orchestra that delivers with its energy, zip and rhythm.
