Well begun is half done, they say. That’s why you feel excited about the day when it starts off on the right foot. That said, happy mornings don’t happen by accident.

If you’re looking for recommendations, Amit Trivedi’s comps are the best you can get. They are light and energizing at the same time – exactly what your ears would love in the early morning!
Get Mein Dalté
A moving Udaan track composed by Amit Trivedi and sung by Amitabh Bhattacharya, Geet Mein Dhalte Lafzon Mein is about closure, catharsis and change. This fits well with the story of Rohan, the film’s main character who breaks free from the chains of abuse and starts life anew with his little stepbrother. The song helps move the narrative forward. It gives you hope for a better future.
English Vinglish’s title track is a high-profile earworm. Its lyrics, written by Swanand Kirkire, are about learning new things and growing as a person, much like Shashi, who is traveling outside India for the first time and has signed up for an English course. It’s upbeat and yet gentle on the ears.
Ek Hulchul Si
The latest from Amit Trivedi’s stellar album for Dev D that won him the national award, Ek Hulchul Si is a song that exudes hope and positivity. Dev has a revelation when he narrowly escapes a traffic accident. He realizes how fragile life is and that he wastes it by being drawn into sadness and addicted to drugs. He decides to make things right as this beautiful song plays in the background.
Amit Trivedi literally created magic with his music in Kai Po Che. It is one of his most popular Bollywood albums, especially the song Meethi Boliyaan, to which he lent his own voice alongside Mili Nair. The lyrics are about living your best life just like the three boys – Ishaan, Omi and Govind, as they work towards their shared dream of running India’s most successful sports academy.
A song about worship and devotion, Namo Namo of Kedarnath has become an anthem for religious processions in India. Plus, it’s also a great song to fuel you with good energy early in the morning. The lyrics, penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, are absolutely divine, and hearing them in Amit Trivedi’s voice is moving.
Present in the romantic comedy Ekk Main Hoon Aur Ekk Tu, Gubbare is a soft and melodious composition that brings you back to childhood. It exudes the innocence, purity and pure joy of a child playing with balloons. Amit Trivedi hits the right notes as always.
Infused with Baul-inspired folk music in lyrics that are a mix of Hindi and Bengali, Monta Re is a one-of-a-kind composition. It is part of Lootera’s musical album, a film adaptation of the short story by O. Henry, The Last Leaf. The lyrics are penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya, who also sang the song alongside Swanand Kirkire. It puts you in a state of calm and tranquility.
A fun and upbeat track from Queen’s much-loved music album, Amit Trivedi really went out of the park with Jugni. Not only did he compose the song, he also sang it. The lyrics are about the freedom of a bird released from a cage – much like Rani, who finds herself after being left at the altar.
