Gabbar Is Back Music Review

RATING ★ 
One doesn’t expects groundbreaking stuff from the soundtrack of "Gabbar Is Back" with just 10 days left for the movie to hit the Big screen. Although the combination of three music composers, namely, Chirantan Bhatt, Yo Yo Honey Singh and Manj Musik makes the proceedings interesting. With just four compositions, let the action begin!

Chirantan Bhatt starts off with "Teri Meri Kahani" where he ropes in the 'Most wanted' combination of Arijit Singh and Palak Muchhal but to no avail, the music gives a massive heard before feel, especially the acoustic guitar intro and the riffs in the interlude which reminds of some pop/rock numbers that we have grown up listening. Neverthless the song has a nice groove to it and would be loved by a certain segment of listeners who likes their music to be simple and catchy. It's for the promotional campaign with Kareena Kapoor making a cameo and fares well for that matter.

Yo Yo Honey Singh is in for a surprise package with the seductive "Aao Raja" which taps a new forte with a fusion of Rap and Mujra. Neha Kakkar does well for the repetitive two lines and at places does an Ila Arun. The typical Honey Singh pulsating music plays throughout and the rap by Honey Singh is the highlight of the song not to mention the double meaning lyrics. Overall, the song is going to be a hit amongst the Yo Yo Honey Singh fans and to be honest this one is far better than his other EDM party anthems with one and four bottles stuff!

Pleasant acoustic guitar strums crafts a soothing ambience for Chirantan Bhatt's "Coffee Peetey Peetey", a breezy hummable romantic number that is easy on the ears where debutant Dev Negi and Paroma Das Gupta adds freshness with their voice along with some average lyrics. An ordinary composition that will act as filler in the movie.

"Warna Gabbar Aa Jayega" composed and rendered by Manj Musik with support from Raftaar is a lyrical rap that throws light on the character of Gabbar in the movie and uses famous punch lines of Gabbar from the movie Sholay. The techno arrangements are flat and don’t make one tap the feet but the lyrics are apt and catches attention. Overall it makes up for a fun visual treat and should be used for end/starting credits.

To conclude, "Gabbar Is Back" is an average soundtrack which will be soon forgotten post the movie release. The music was never an important aspect for this movie except the Honey Singh number which should find an interesting place in the narration. Obviously an action packed hard hitting cinema works well without any speed breakers and fillers.
