Rangoon’s Ye Ishq Hai: Kangana Ranaut, Shahid Kapoor song envelopes you like a warm hug, watch video


There is love that is simmering just beneath the surface, ready to explode at a moment’s notice. At present, it is about stolen glances and stolen moments. Very soon it may bring about tears and heartbreak. But then, when have lovers thought about the future? Just now, it is just perfect, just the two of them and their own world. Rangoon’s new song ‘Ye Ishq Hai’ is the song of that love. It slowly creeps on you, it takes you over and before you know it, you are committed to it. The song has that elusive magic that only Gulzar and Vishal Bhardwaj can produce.

That particular moment stood out as the highlight in an otherwise underwhelming song. And the new song of Rangoon‘Ye Ishq Hai‘,

Unlike ‘Bloody Hell‘, this one is from the Bhardwaj school of music. It has a hypnotic tune and a meditative pace. Vishal has not mixed many musical instruments. He has rather chosen to keep it simple and has limited his range to string musical instruments, from acoustic guitar to the Burmese harp, staying true to its setting of Myanmar (then-Rangoon). Arijit Singh’s voice is a musical instrument in its own right. Whenever the singer is quite, his voice is aptly replaced by a flute.

Ye Ishq Hai could have been an even more soul-stirring song had there been a female voice, perhaps the exceptional vocals of Vishal’s wife Rekha Bhardwaj. We don’t mind another female voice-only version
