Bhaag Johny Music Review

RATING  ★ ★ 1/2
One is not sure what to expect from the music of "Bhaag Johnny" where as many as four composers have been roped with the likes of Mithoon, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Arko Mukherjee and Devi Sri Prasad. Suddenly there is an anxiety level as these names are always associated with some good chartbuster tunes.

Devi Sir Prasad (DSP) who’s 'Dhinka Chika' from Ready is still a rage, recreates his own Telugu Hit for "Daddy Mummy” with the lyrics being lifted from the Tamil Version. MM Mansi vocals are energetic and remind of Mamta Sharma at places due to the heavy texture, DSP aptly supports her with the rap portions in between, though what makes this number catchy and foot tapping is the pulsating techno arrangements that stays with the listeners for long. Overall this one may enjoy a short stint amongst the party lovers.

Arko Mukherjee last ost 'Jism 2' is one of my favourites, the song 'Abhi Abhi' has the power to melt hearts even after three years, now when he re-creates Sajid-Wajid's and Sonu Nigam's 'Deewana' iconic number "Iss Qadar Pyar Hai", one expects something gorgeous and innovative. The melody and hook line is kept the same with a welcome change in the lyrics by Faaiz Anwar, Ankit Tiwari croons this one with all heart albeit the auto tuned effect which somewhat limits the vocal talent and emotional connect, also it ends absurdly and quickly after the second Antara. A re-hash version that could have touched new heights only results as a good number and nothing extraordinary.

Yo Yo Honey Singh's "Aankhon Aankhon" suffers from the same old pulsating music (minus the rap) throughout which lands in the same old familiar territory that we have heard in the past so many times, 'Angreji Beat' (Cocktail) to be very specific. The hindi-punjabi lyrics though are quite catchy and the hook line becomes addictive after a while, luckily the song doesn't go ear-defying over the top in the arrangements and maintains a decent rhythm. Although the composition lacks innovation and offers nothing fresh but who cares this is going to be loved by Honey Singh fan club and is to be played in discotheque's for some time to come.

Remember the magical 'Maula Mera Maula' from 'Anwar' that swept the listeners off their feet..that was Mithoon about a decade ago, now most of his compositions are somewhere weaved around his chartbuster 'Phir Mohabbat' from 'Murder 2' or carry the same 'safe zone' template and refrain from innovative imagination..That’s where "Kinna Sona" wins you over with the same magical charm. Sunil Kamath textured vocals carries the Sufi-pop flavour brilliantly and that too with a classical touch, watch out for his high notes which reminds of the legendary Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan Sahab. The lyrics by Amitabh Verma oozes love and emotions with every word, his work flows like a soothing poetry alongside the fabulous tabla beats and mesmerize the listeners, make no mistake, this one has is here to stay and has in it to enjoy a long shelf life. Keep this one on loop and enjoy the peaceful romantic ambience that it creates!

Mithoon brings the immensely talented Rahul Vaidya for the last track "Meri Zindagi" and to much surprise he seems to put in a lot of effort in his renditions which makes him sound unusual. This one is a sad situational number that misses the chord on the emotional level and ends the soundtrack on an average note.

All in All, Bhaag Johnny has some decent numbers with a magnificent 'Kinna Sona' that is a delight for the music lovers. Overall: Enjoyable!
