This actor is known for his energy especially when it comes to a good dance number however when it comes to slow melodies not many would associate him with them. It has to be said though that in almost every one of his films there have been a few songs that have managed to strike a chord with the audience because of their heartfelt lyrics and beautiful tunes.
Although Ranveer Singh isn’t known for these type of songs BizAsiaLive.com is looking back at five such songs that we feel show Singh in a different ambiance, on the occasion of his his birthday.
Laal Ishq from ‘Goliyon Ki Raasleela Ram-Leela’ (2013)
A song immersed in love from the moment it begins. Arijit Singh created magic with the heartfelt lyrics of Siddharth Garima. The trials of the two lovers are shown visually but as well as this the passion in their love for one another. Singh’s expressions showed the pain and sadness of being separated from ones love and having to live every moment without them.
‘Laal Ishq’ expresses a deep love between two lovers in which they forget about everything and everyone but each other.
Zinda from ‘Lootera’ (2013)
Amit Trivedi sang this melodious number that touches the heart in more ways than one. The lyrics voice a sadness, a struggle in life that many may feel at times. In the video Singh can be seen climbing a tree while it is snowing heavily trying to attach a leaf to one of the branches. While the song to listen to may sound melancholic the video shows hope with just that one leaf as a metaphor.
Very rarely does one see Singh in such songs as the audience is used to seeing him in upbeat bangers but this one was a nice change.
Baawra from ‘Kill Dil’ (2014)
The song opens up on a dark night with the rain pouring down. Dev (Singh) and Tutu (Ali Zafar) who are two assassins set off on a mission while Tutu looks determined to do the job, Dev’s mind is elsewhere. The lyrics ‘dil wali naukri ne mara’ (the job of the heart has killed me) in other words it is Dev’s love for the woman he loves that has made him helpless, he can no longer pick up a gun and do the evil things he did before he met her. Gulzar’s lyrics expressed Dev’s feelings perfectly, showing his every thought and his fears it all gelled really well together.
Also Shankar Mahadevan and Nihira Joshi Deshpande’s vocals sounded great on the rock like music from Shankar Ehsaan Loy.
Aayat from ‘Bajirao Mastani’ (2015)
The poetic lyrics by A. M Turaz were sang in a soothing manner by Arijit Singh. The song was melodious and went perfectly with the qawwali segments of the song which were in the vocals of Mujtaba Aziz Naza, Shadab, Altamash Faridi and last but not least Farhan Sabri.
Singh was seen with his wife Deepika Padukone in this song who also played the role of Mastani his second wife in the film. Seeing this real life couple together made the song even more special as the song was romantic but at the same time very spiritual showing a love that is very pure.
Je T’aime from ‘Befikre’ (2016)
Shyra (Vaani Kapoor) and Dharam (Singh) were the two lovers who vowed they will have fun but when it comes to love they will take care to stay away from this feeling. However it is all easier said than done when Dharam realises that he actually feels something for Shyra but does she also feel the same way as he recalls those times they spent together. This track had French sounds added to the mix to give it a peppy vibe with Vishal Dadlani and Sunidhi Chauhan completing the song with their vocals. Visually it was filmed in an interesting manner to grasp the viewers attention with the characters seeing a happier version of themselves singing and dancing.
BizAsiaLive.com wishes Ranveer Singh a very happy birthday.
