Mary Kom music review

Mary Kom has got a relatively new musical team of composers in Shashi Suman and Shivam, and lyricists Prashant Ingole and Sandeep Singh.

Ziddi Dil has a very haunting melody, which is elevated to another level with Vishal Dadlani’s vocals.

A motivational song about achieving what the heart has to say, this Shashi-Prashant track has an amazing good pitch that keeps the steam on right through its near five long minutes duration.

The hook is just right too. The key words, Dil yeh ziddi hai keep playing in one’s head.
Shivam and Sandeep come together for Sukoon Mila, which starts off in the beginning with a mouth organ. Arijit Singh, easily the hottest and the popular singer around, takes the mike.

This love song has a very beautiful melody. The lyrics are damn poetic and there is such serenity in the song that you want it to repeat. This one certainly deserves a hearing.

The very well experienced Sunidhi Chauhan’s voice in Adhure is just an apt choice for Priyanka Chopra. The way Sunidhi Chauhan sings it, one can visualise the actress in the frame with a montage keeping the play on.

A very strategically well laid out musical piece by Shashi and Prashant, Adhure lends class to Mary Kom. It’s the kind of number that reminds one of the R D Burman-Gulzar set-up of the 1970s.

Mohit Chauhan is heard next in Shashi-Prashant’s Teri Baari. The situation of the song has the central protagonist being inspired to fly away and achieve her goals.

The song has got an ordinary start and though the hook is good, the subsequent portions in the antara don’t have much of originality. Arijit Singh returns with Shashi-Prashant’s Saudebaazi. A simple composition it has a smooth flow and with the minimal use of instruments. Saudebaazi may not be an instant hit, but it fits into the soundtrack and will keep the smiles coming after repeated playing.

Shivam-Sandeep return with Salaam India, composers by Vishal Dadlani and Salim Merchant behind the mike. In the trilogy of very encouraging motivational songs, this one is third after Ziddi Dil and Teri Baari.

It starts off in a rather subdued manner and reaches its up end after 75 seconds. It has a core situational appeal to it, and won’t have much of a life after the run of the film.

The last number is a lori by lead actress Priyanka Chopra, to Shashi-Sandeep’s track. In complete contrast to her all the international numbers she has sung so far, this one has an Indian melody, which focuses on the title of the song, Chaoro.

Priyanka sings really well. She emphasises on the key words with the correct emotion. The song is quite short and wraps up in 150 seconds.

Mary Kom’s music delivers a little more than what had been expected. While one expected genre-centric songs (Ziddi Dil does that job well), the bonus is the love songs Sukoon Mila and Saudebaazi.

Adhure and Chaoro do well too. The songs in the film may not be the instant chartbusters, but as a soundtrack, Mary Kom holds its own.

Some lessons which Priyanka Chopra learn from the ring

Never had I thought that I’d look at boxing something as an analogy for life. But weeks away from the release of one of my most challenging films, Mary Kom, directed by Omung Kumar, all I can think about is how this movie has taught me some of the most very important fundamental learnings in life.

After all, there’s a lot you can learn when you’re standing in that challenging ring, alone and defence less. Like renowned boxer Tex Cobb said, “If you screw up in tennis, it’s 15-love. If you screw up in boxing, it’s your ass, darling!” So here it goes…what I fondly call ‘Lessons From The Ring’ says gorgeous actress Priyanka Chopra.

It’s really hard to defend when someone’s constantly beating you black and blue. And I’m talking about all kinds of knocks — physical, mental and emotional. Mary Kom dealt with all that and that too in style. I told myself everyday that if she could do it, so could I. There were days on the shoot when I felt I couldn’t move another muscle or do another push-up. But at the end of the day, ‘DilYehZiddiHai’..

Mary Kom Movie Poster

As a token of her appreciation forone of the very iconic sports star, Priyanka has invited Mary Kom for the launch of the film’s music in Mumbai tonight. The two will be hosting the event along with debutant director Omung Kumar. Besides, they will also be felicitating five people who fought against all the odds to realise their dreams, in sync with the protagonist’s never-give-up attitude.A day before the event, Priyanka tells us that her short stint in the boxing ring has taught her some fundamental lessons that she will never forget. She explains, “It is Mary’s ziddi dil that gave its wings to this film and I’m looking forward to sharing our journey with her. We have a great event planned to launch the film’s music, along with a few surprises. For me, every song in the album comes together in a way that embodies the spirit of the film.”

Composed by Shashi-Shivam, the music of the much awaited film Mary Kom, a biopic on India’s boxing champion MC Mary Kom, will be released on Wednesday night in Mumbai. Singers like Sunidhi Chauhan, Vishal Dadlani, Arijit Singh and Priyanka Chopra have sung the songs in the film.

Priyanka Chopra has already amazed everyone with her muscular look in the Mary Kom Movie, but there is more much she has in store for the fans.

The actress will be seen going bald in one specific sequence. And she was sure excited for it, Priyanka said, “That is a very authentic scene and I was damn excited for it. I never say never, so was all around the set wearing the bald look. As an actor I feel that it is my duty for the role that I portray, that I do it with complete honesty. It is a personal challenge that I set for myself to portray all my characters differently.”

Mary Kom, produced by Viacom18 Motion Pictures and Sanjay Leela Bhansali, releases September 5.

Mary Kom’s biopic is also all set to hit the theatres. Omung Kumar is making his directorial debut with a biopic on Indian woman boxer Mary Kom. The film ‘Mary Kom‘, which is set for a release on September 5, is a biopic on Olympic bronze medallist and five-time World Champion MC Mary Kom. “The film is the first of its kind being made in Bollywood… I did not think of the film as a risk. Biopics work because it is zero-to-hero story. The emotions run high.. It is a huge pull for anyone. It is not that I made this film after seeing ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’. I had the idea much before it was made,” director Omung said.”I started this film three and half years back before any film on sports (biopic films) was made. We had started researching on Mary Kom. We had spoken to her three and half years back about this project. Then I approached Sanjay Leela Bhansali (producer) and Priyanka Chopra and things fell in place. It may be a trend now,” he added.

The biopic of the female boxer MC Mary Kom has been doing the buzz lately. The Olympic bronze medalist has been an inspiration to the world of women power and dignity. She stunned everybody with her game, struggle and victory in the Olympic 2012. She is a five-time World Boxing champion, and the only woman boxer to have won a medal in each one of the six world championships. Her achievement also amazed director Omang Kumar and Bollywood’s diva Priyanka Chopra to make a biopic on the boxer’s life starring Piggie Chops in the lead role.

The trailer of the biopic titled Mary Kom Movie is finally out. It is directed by Omung Kumar, produced by Sanjay Leela Bhansali and starring Priyanka. The film Mary Kom is to have its world premiere at Toronto International Film Festival. Priyanka Chopra looks pretty convincing and impressive as a boxer. She doesn’t look Manipuri but has almost perfected the Manipuri accent which is really complimenting. Ajit Andhare, COO Viacom 18, seemed over whelmed with the response and quoting his happiness he said, “We’re thrilled with the astounding response to the poster and teaser which we had titled ‘Mary Kom Punch’ these have set us up very well for the trailer, which will be out later this week. We’ve titled the trailer ‘Mary Kom knock-out’”. The director also seemed very pleased and stated “After a long time there has been a frenzy of this sort surrounding the release of a poster. It felt good to hear all the fabulous comments. We had to live up to people’s expectations with the teaser also. I think we succeeded in doing so. Now we have the trailer coming up. I am very excited. It’s been a long wait for me. I can finally showcase my work to the world.” Well yes, the poster is really striking and bold. Priyanka Chopra looks astonishingly stormy, fierce and tempestuous. She remarkably resembles the boxer. The color of the poster, her expressions and not to forget Priyanka’s cuts and pumped up biceps…Totally Striking.

The movie is scheduled to come out on 2nd October, 2014.

Mary Kom: Lady with Full-Confidence

The upcoming film ‘Mary Kom’ is actually a biopic on the life of champion boxer Mary Kom. This film is set to depict the struggles she faced on her journey to becoming a success star in the world of Boxing. Leading actress Priyanka Chopra plays the lead role in this film and has worked really hard towards looking authentic as a boxer in this film. The role she had to depict is that of a lady with fill confidence and this was not easy considering the struggles she had to face.

In the poster we can see Priyanka exuding oodles of confidence as she looks like she can take down any opponent going up against her in the boxing ring. Her look catches our attention instantly and gives us a feeling that she is about to receive laurels for this strong role in ‘Mary Kom’. The teaser of this film was released on the occasion of Priyanka Chopra’s birthday, but didn’t manage to cause a buzz. The trailer of this film however, caused a big splash in the cinema industry. After receiving positive reviews of Mary Kom Movie with the trailer, we can be sure that this film will do great at the box office and will win the hearts of the audience.
It is nice to see that Bollywood is making woman-centric films that break the notion that women are not capable of doing certain things. In this case, boxing is a sport that people find hard to associate with the weaker sex. Through this film and the life of Mary Kom, we see that this is wrong and women of today can achieve whatever they wish to pursue with full confidence. Apart from this film, there is another film that promotes this concept. The film Mardaani has also been termed as woman-centric as it has Rani Mukerji in the lead role playing the character of a cop. This film revolves around the fight against female trafficking in the country. Rani character in the film is that of a cop that fights crime single handedly with courage and fearlessness. Although we may call this a woman centric film, Rani Mukerji refuses to believe so. She says that a film is either good or bad and that is is wrong to term a film as woman centric or male centric. Whatever the case, it is a fact that Bollywood is now focusing on making films that show that women are in power and have nothing to fear in fighting for their dreams and fighting against evil.

Mary Kom is set to release in theatres on the 5th of September and is one of the most highly anticipated films of the year. It will be interesting to watch how this film will fare at the box office against Bollywoods previous success with a biopic through the film ‘Bhaag Milkha Bhaag’. It is nice to see Bollywood entering a new genre of film as they experiment with biopics. As far as Mary Kom is concerned, we pretty sure this experiment will bring great results and will turn out to be a commercial hit.
