Guitar ballads are always a no-brainer. You can’t go wrong with them and they’re very approachable. Anirudh Deshmukh’s tune ‘Dil Bawra’ is a brilliant entry into that genre. Drawing elements of Bollywood music, it is a great tune to accompany a long drive or a rainy evening.
Known for his simple and approachable style of composition, he explores really emotional themes of the heart and feelings of people who want to break free from any rules they are forced to live by. Sonically, it is fairly simple with a great emotional guitar solo thrown into it. That being said, it does face a task of trying to be different enough. But that may not always be a bad thing. The sense of familiarity lends it its approachability and relatability. Which plays well into Deshmukh’s primary style. So it is a great song which could use a little bit of spice to make it that extra bit special.
Verdict: Simple, approachable and soothing.
