Jury comments

What a treat to hear Kabir's lyrics in a hindi film! Shweta Pandit has sung in that incredible vulnerable voice. Great relevance in the film - perfect example of using a song to reflect the characters/situation. The masala musicals of bollywood may disappear but I hope films like highway continue to get made which use music really well. -Arun

Shweta Pandit is a good singer. -Sunil

Put me to sleep it's that boring -Ketan

Kabir, ARR -Bharathi

Very Rehmanesque. Love the lyrics. -Hemendra

Loops loops and more loops -Pranav

Every so often ARR will throw in a 7-beat number, reminds me of "Azhagu Nilave" from "Pavithra" from years ago. Excellent production, instrumentation, and sound quality we've come to expect from ARR, and singing is nice but voice sounds like the myriad of others singing for ARR - maybe the vocal effects? Lyrics discernably Kabir... -Sanjeev

सही मायनों में श्‍वेता का गीत। रहमान की खूब अच्‍छी कंपोजीशन। -यूनुस

Liked the fact that they have tried adapting Kabir's poetry, but marred by both ARR's insistence on not following the natural cadence of the original poetry, and the singer's breathing into the microphone. Find the rendering of 'maanava' particularly jarring, and can the 'kapat' be a little less anglicised? -Vibhendu

Heera is special. Rahman gives life to Kabir's words in the form of an exquisite melody. The little touches(harkats) added by Shweta makes Heera even more beautiful. My most favorite part of the song is the one-min long Strings interlude which is not only drop-dead-gorgeous but also goosebumps-worthy. Period. -Mihir M

Shweta has beautifully rendered this song. Brilliant use of violins and flute interspersed with bells. The song is almost hymn-like with the tinkering of the bells. -Sowmya

Background crying is disturbing. -Zafar

Soulful composition -Parul
