One of the finest melodies from movie Life in a …. Metro. However, I flinch before giving complete credit to its music director Pritam, because of instances of countless plagiarism! But one cannot take away the singing credits from Soham Chakraborty (are Pritam and Soham related? Chakroborty brothers? Name sounds similiar too).
This song is all about its melody, the instrumentation is rich (just as every other song of Metro), fuller sound with lots of keyboards, distortion guitar, harmonica, etc. One thing for sure, whether the song’s been lifted or not, he (Pritam) surely is a great arranger (unless of course, he engages someone else for arrangement).
You can play the song with just one guitar or a piano or combination of both. But the heart of the song is in its melody, you got to get that right, at least most of it (not an easy feat).

The songs of Metro are a set of landmark compositions in Bollywood music industry. Rooted in best of both eastern and western worlds, the compositions are going to remain as classics forever. Wish only Pritam had truly composed all of them!
