Baahubali 2: The Conclusion, is just hours away from making history in the world of Indian Cinema. S.S. Rajamouli’s epic saga, the first instalment of which released almost two years ago, can be touted as THE most awaited film of the decade. Who thought a film NOT starring Rajnikant, could have that level of hysteria around it. Yet, the Bahubali series managed to do the unthinkable. Anticipating the level of excitement around the second Baahubali movie, the makers have released the full music album well in advance. Because they know the kind of music the film has in its soundtrack, gradually grows on the viewer and needs to be given ample amount of listening time.
Baahubali : The Beginning i.e. the first movie had a music album that was a mixture of love songs, a dance number and powerful war songs. Bahubali 2: The Conclusion, has a similar blend of songs in its music album which has been composed by M.M. Kreem and the lyrics have been penned by Manoj Muntashir.
- The first song in the album is ‘Jiyo Re Bahubali’. And the makers couldn’t have made a better choice than to choose Daler Mehndi for it. This song has been the background score for the motion posters featuring Baahubali and it makes an impact on the listener from the word go. This song speaks about the Emperor and the love his people have for him. Singers : Daler Mehndi, Sanjeev Chimmalgi, Ramya Behara
- The second song is ‘Veeron ka Veer aa’ and this song talks about the love and adoration Devasena has for Amrendra Bahubali. The song has a similar vibe to the romantic song that is picturised on Tammanah and Prabhas in the first film where Tammanah is seen dancing and beyond the reach of Shivudu. Singers: Aditi Paul & Deepu.
- ‘Soja Zara’, the third track is a breath of fresh air, where a woman persuades her ‘Krishna’ to go to sleep. It’s a sweet lullaby with a twist, because the beats this song has are usually missing in other lullaby songs. Singer : Madhushree
- ‘Jay Jaykara’ sung by Kailash Kher and ‘Shivam’ sung by Kaala Bhairava are both powerful tracks that probably are needed given the narrative of the movie. The former is kind of a prayer asking for courage in tough times and the latter feels like a war track. Both the songs are high on the classical quotient, with beats that make your heart thump. We can’t wait to see them with visuals to get the context right.
