The alphabet G has less songs, too. And a couple of songs in this list are underrated. Okay, my pick is Genda Phool from Delhi-6. My selection may sound unlikely (with two other songs in G being chart busters), but it is close to my heart. In fact, the entire album of Delhi-6 defines my soul. Though an underrated soundtrack, each and every song is a gem, according to me. The album had varied soundscapes that catered to listeners of all genres.
Genda Phool is a traditional number that sprays festivity all over. Don’t expect a grand wedding number with upbeat rhythm. It’s a subtle traditional song that slowly spreads warmth. Embedded with synth bass loops and mellowed techno beats, this number is top class fusion by Rahman. The voices of Rekha Bharadwaj, Shrradha Pandit, Sujatha Mazumder, and Mahathi aptly suit the mood. Rajat Dholakia also shares the music credits for this chart buster.
Though it’s not a number meant for all, it’s an interesting fusion which can be enjoyed by all at least once. I chose this as my soul song since the entire album of Delhi-6 has a past connection with me.
