A to Z Challenge · A.R.Rahman

R for Rehna Tu (#AToZChallenge)

Some songs can be categorized as meditative. Rehna Tu from Delhi-6 falls under this category. It’s a trance-like love ballad that is mesmerizing as well as empowering. This number can suit a warm morning as well as a serene night.

Rahman’s effervescent tune has a reverberating effect, which calms the senses instantly. The bewitching instrumentation which includes mild Arabic flavours and some clean guitar strumming tug at the listener’s heartstrings. But it is Rahman’s jazzy voice that serves as an icing on the ornate cake. His honeyed voice interspersed with the charming tune and additional vocals of Benny Dayal & Tanvi Shah create a mystical aura.

A special mention to the refreshing Hindustani piece towards the end. Rahman has used a special instrument named continuum fingerboard which produced the serene classical notes. Prasoon Joshi’s meaningful lyrics have some lines that are pure soul curry for people in love. Here are my favourite lines,

“Tujhe badalna na chahoon

Ratti bhar bhi sanam

Bina sajawat, milawat

Na zyaada na hi kam

Tujhe chahoon, jaisa hai tu

Mujhe tere baarish mein bheegna hai ghul jaana hai…”

Love ballads are beautiful and this number is the epitome of them. Give it a listen here:
