Clinton Cerejo,Hitesh Sonik,Luv Ranjan,Ad Boys-These were the names which surpised me when I saw them below the label-Music director.Clinton Cerejo has last composed the title track of Jawani Diwani(in 2006),Hitesh Sonik recently composed for Stanley ka dabba-2011 and Lahore-2010,and the other two names are totally new,so lets see what they have to offer in these six tracks.
The first promo had the song Ishq Na Kariyo Kakke sung by Mika,right from the start it entered the Pritam zone and is the best track of the album(will come back to it later).
So,the first track says Life Sahi Hai(K.K, Vishal Dadlani, Benny Dayal, Sidd Coutto[dnt know where he came from]);a brilliant start keeping in mind the theme of movie,song describes the carefree youth today,it will grow once the video is released(however it goes on a bit similar track as dum laga dum laga of Dil Dosti e.t.c).The song looses grip in between for some time when vishal enters with his english vocals but after that it gets back on the track and the lyrics makes it even more interesting[chichoristaan ke hum chaudhari hai].Brilliant start to the album.
Koi aa raha Paas hai,its an ordinary track and has nothing refreshing to offer.Its original version(its more of an unplugged version) sung by suraj jagan doesn't attracts even after multiple hearings,then there is a Reprise version sung by Sonu nigam,its better than the original one but still it lacks the refreshing touch.Average track after such a brilliant start.
Then comes KUTTA(Mika) ,its funny,situational,spanky,catchy.Its a brave effort to write such lyrics(listen ghade ke poot----) in today's era where male dominated movies and songs are made.The song will get attention due to its catchy lyrics,and I think the song should be played at different times in the movie as a background score rather than just wasting it on one situation.
Chak Galassi(Monali, Sunzanne D'mello) a perfect dance number which will strike instantly and will make rounds at the clubs in the coming days,the song tries hard to recreate the magic of 4 Baj gaye(FALTU) but fails,not completely,it works in parts.A good dance number all in all which has another version sung by Ad Boys in place of Monali,however the original is far better than this one.
Baanware(Clinton Cerejo),this song needs some time to grow,nothing special apart from the singer and the rock feeling added to it,its more of a vishal bhardwaaj genre composition,will add variety to the album.Good effort.
Now come Ishq Na kariyo Kakke,from the word go its a Pritam's zone,the lyrics,the music,the singer,everything.The song is already a hit.Not only the song is high on beats but the lyrics also gel perfectly with the theme of the song,a lot now depends upon the timing of the song in the movie,the song will grow more and more once the movie releases.A sure shot chartbuster.
To sum up,the music has got so much attention just because the way the movie is being promoted,a lot now-a-days depends upon this.The promo's were enough to creating curiosity despite the movie being a guiness record in the debut category,all the 6 lead actors/actress are newcomers with the music director and lyricist joining the list.
