Alia-Bhatt-in-Highway-Movie-Stills‘Highway’; Composer: AR Rahman; Singers: Sultan Nooran, JyotiNooran, A.R. Rahman, Jonita Gandhi, Kash, Krissy, Suvi Suresh, ZebBangash, Alia Bhatt, SunidhiChauhan, and ShwetaPandit; Rating: ****

Alia Bhatt-RandeepHooda-starrer ‘Highway’, a romantic drama directed by Imtiaz Ali, boasts of nine tracks. The songs show Rahman`s efforts at once again creating something enthralling.

It starts on a very soothing note with ‘PatakhaGuddi’. Sung by the Nooran sisters – Sultan and Jyoti – the Sufi number is soulful. The song will make you feel free-spirited.

Sung by music maestro Rahman, ‘Maahive’ comes next. A love ballad, it has simple yet expressive lyrics mixed with Rahman`s voice. This one will surely give you the chills.

‘Kahaanhoon main’, sung by Jonita Gandhi, is a situational track. The touching number might make the listener question about what one is doing and what one really wants to do.

The fourth one is ‘Wanna mash up?’ by Kash, Krissy and Suvi Suresh. This one is very urban and will connect with youth. It is not one of those fast tracks but has the ability to grow on the listener.
