Chaav Laaga – Sui Dhaaga: Made in India (September 2018)

This soothing number is from the upcoming Yash Raj film Sui Dhaaga: Made in India nicely rendered by Papon and newcomer Ronkini Gupta composed by Anu Malik and simplistically penned by Varun Grover

Kabhi sheet laaga, kabhi taap laaga
Tere saath ka hai, jo shaap laaga,
Manwaa ….bauraaya…
Tera chaav laaga jaise koi ghaav laaga!

There are bound to be comparisons with the hugely successful and popular Moh Moh ke Dhaage (Dum Laga ke Haisha; 2015) as Anu Malik composes once again for the same filmmakers! There are similarities like Papon, the flute riffs, the rhythm pattern and most importantly the soothing melody-focused feel. Nevertheless, this one’s also extremely hummable and Papon and Ronkini take it up one level. Anu meanders into the Vishal Bhardwaj territory with similarities especially from 0:20 – 0:25s with O saathi re (Omkara; 2006; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xthAVytCTPI; 0:24 – 0:29s). To top it up, Ronkini’s voice also sounds somewhat similar to Rekha Bhardwaj’s. The ace composer also starts the antara (1:34 – 1:38s) revisiting his own Aisa lagta hai (Refugee; 2000; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ai8ycTID1bs; 1:13 – 1:18s). Varun Grover will make you fall in love with simple words, earthiness and cute expressions. The less you compare this one with Moh Moh the better even if you can’t ignore the similarities. Enjoy this one, sing along, hum it and you are bound to say ‘tera chaav laaga’!
