Kya Super Kool Hai Hum Music Review

Rating: ★ ★ 1/2
A adult sex-com doesn't quite comes with humungnous expectations when it comes to the music, rightly so, "Kya Super Kool Hai Hum" (a sequel to 'Kya Kool Hai Hum'comes with only four original compositions but surprisingly with three music directors being used, namely: Sachin-Jigar; Anjjaan - Meet Bros and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy (S-E-L). Let's see if there is anything 'Kool' for the music lovers !

Bang On..the first and only composition by Sachin-Jigar "Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya" is addictive, catchy, funky and aptly written by guest lyricist Mayur Puri keeping in sync with the theme and content of the movie. Vishal Dadlani's voice is energetic and the auto-tuned effect is well used. The lyrics does gets a bit suggestive and double meaning at places but it's the beats and retro feel that works for the song and makes it the best of the four originals. Good start although the "Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya Remix" wasn't required at all with few changes here and there as the original has enough pace and beats.

Anjjan - Meet Bros brings "Shirt Da Button" which is a winner and takes only few hearings to adjust to the unusual lyrics by Kumaar. Sonu Nigam is magnificent as always and sings his heart out in this melodious composition which has a touch of qawwali provided to it. At first, one may get annoyed by the start where the lyrics goes a bit wayward as the title of the song says but as the song progresses, one hears some pretentious alaaps and the unconventional lyrics catches attention, especially in the anataras. Go and hum around this hat-ke lovely romantic song ! Moving on, a fusion of Indian-Western beats starts of "Shirt Da Button Version 2" where surprisingly Kailash Kher replaces Sonu and is joined by Anjjan-Meet Bros themselves for the chorus part. With Kailash Kher behind the mike, the composition is inclined more towards the sufi zone, especially both the interludes with a fantastic harmonium in the second one.The focus shifts to the vocals from melody as in the original and there are enough variations to hear out for. A well handled alternate version which will certainly get listeners hooked.

"Hum To Hai Cappuccino (U.P. - Bihar Lootne)" is a surprise package; a rehash male version of S-E-L's very own 'U.P- Bihar Lootne' from 'Shool' with some sparkling and stormy singing by hugely talented Sukhwinder Singh and Daler Mehndi. Lyricist Kumaar deserves a pat on his back for the lyrics:
Apne Thumke Pe Clap Kare Duniya, Beech Me Hindi Me Rap Kare Muniya,
Raub MTV jaisa, Doordarshan Sa Dil Hai,
Entry Apni To Taaliyon Ke Kabil Hai.
A blustery dance number that goes all loud at the end with the Maharashtrian dhol as Riteish Deshmukh joins the vocals for this part. No doubt  that this one is aimed at the massess and the popularity depends upon the picturisation and promotions. Video can do wonders.

The last composition by Anjjan - Meet Bros "Volume High Karle" is the weakest of all and reminds of Pritam's 'Pyaar Do Pyaar Lo' at the very onset. An average tried and tested template which has nothing new, neither the vocals of Neeraj Shridhar provides anything fresh nor the lyrics by Kumaar offers anything that deserves attention. Don't bother giving it a hear neither the "Volume High Karle Remix". SKIP both !

It's an average soundtrack that works in parts and being an adult comedy, nothing much was expected too. 'Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya' and 'Shirt Da Button' are already popular and 'Hum To Hai Cappuccino' should work pretty well from the movie's perpective and promotions. With 'Jism 2' soundtrack on the verge of its release, I don't think Kya Super Kool Hai Hum will get much listeners.
I rate it 2.5 out of 5 !

Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya Music Review

Riteish Deshmukh aka Viren in Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya
Rating: ★ ★ ★ 1/2
Sachin-Jigar (Music Composers), a name that is gaining popularity and climbing up the ladder way too fast with just three soundtracks in their stable- ''F.A.L.T.U''-GOOD, ''Shor In The City''-BRILLIANT and ''Hum Tum Shabana'' (HTS)-GOOD. Now with "Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya" (TNLHG), the composer duo are ready to rock the charts again, where the promotions started with few songs (two) being released almost a month ago digitally before the official music release. A soundtrack loaded with artist like Atif Aslam, Mohit Chauhan, Kailash Kher, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan and Monali Thakur develops huge expectations with five originals, six remixes and one reprise/sad version. Priya Panchal and Mayur Puri do the job for penning the lyrics which sees a perfect blend of some beautiful romantic numbers and some Punjabi-hip-hop dance numbers.

The soundtrack opens with the much promoted "Piya O Re Piya" where Shreya Ghoshal refreshes the memories of 'Saibo' (Shor In The City) at the very start and later Atif Aslam almost does almost a 'Pehli Nazar' (Race) with some apt lyrics by Priya Panchal. Despite Shreya's repetitive 'Main Vaari Jaava, Main Vaari Jaava', the composition strike gold at the first strike. Atif Aslam does what he is best at and the end result is an engaging, innocent composition easy on ears which mark a smooth beginning for TNLHG. Go for it!
"Piya O Re Piya- Sad Version" is captivating and goes unplugged for the whole 2.30 minutes. The change in the lyrics is something to hear out for and should be used at a crucial juncture in the movie. Priya Panchal replaces Shreya Ghoshal but her presence is hardly felt.
As one moves one, a third version "Piya O Re Piya- Remix (By DJ Suketu)" shows the immense confidence the composers had in the composition. Addition of some English vocals in the only interlude and at the end provides some variety and surprisingly the pace remains the same despite some added extra beats. I would prefer the other two version over this remix which only acts as a filler.

Mohit Chauhan is a name that attracts numerous ears; the second track "Jeene De" is not a trademark Sachin-Jigar number which has a blend of Qawwali with some opulent use of harmonium. Normally a Mohit Chauhan number strikes instantly but this number needs some hearings to grow but once it does it will be hard to keep away for sure. The backing/supporting vocals by some male artist are what catch the attention but I wonder why the credentials have no mention about him. The lyrics by Mayur Puri are simple yet very effective. Hit!
Innovative and Impressive with a capital 'I', that’s what "Jeene De-Coffee House Version" is all about. Some pretentious guitar strums starts off the track with some cheering and applause from the chorus giving an acoustic/lounge feel to it. If the original was purely Indian at heart, this number sees some fascinating guitar replacing the Tabla making it more inclined towards a modern, western composition. Terrific! Would be disappointed if a promotional video is not picturised on this one.

Riteish and Genelia in the song 'Pee Pa Pee Pa Ho Gaya'
Moving on, Sachin-Jigar enters their trademark forte, a fast-paced dance track "Pee Pa Pee Pa Ho Gaya" which starts off with an energizing mukhda. Diljit Dosanjh (a name more popular for Punjabi numbers) does full justice to this Punjabi track where any other day and it could have very well be Mika Singh at the helm of affairs. Mayur Puri writes some exciting lyrics which will definitely find an inclusion among other Punjabi-Talli-Dance tracks. The composition may very well be called a sequel to 'Mast Kalandar' (Heyy Baby), although it doesn't has much similarity but still the overall feel and the arrangements reminds slightly gives a 'Mast Kalandar' feel. The promo video feat. the lead pair, Riteish Deshmukh and Genelia DSouza, certainly lacks the punch and energy that the audio alone provides. It's not first time for Sachin-Jigar that a wonderful composition is being let down by the picturisation and choreography, recently 'Thank U Mr.Dj' and 'Piya Kesariyo' from ''HTS'' faced the same treatment and as a result despite the compositions being worth a hear, they disappeared somewhere down the line among other average tracks.
"Pee Paa Desi Mix (Remix by VIP Records)" is a good effort to blend Desi with Hip-Hop and the end result is an usual remix. May be replacing Mika Singh for Diljit in the remix could have gathered some more applause.

Atif Aslam returns back with the romantic "Tu Mohabbat Hai" which has in it to be an addiction instantly. Priya Panchal (supporting vocals) starts with some Punjabi lines and from there on, its Atif's show all over. Monali Thakur joins in after two minutes and her 'overlapping' effect with Atif in each antara is simply Majestic! (from 2.30 to 2.44 and 3.54 to 4.08). It's certainly the best of the lot and should make up for a good visual treat post interval with love in the air between the lead pairs. Don't dare miss it!
"Tu Mohabbat Hai-Remix (By DJ Suketu)" makes for a good remix, although nothing much special and reminds of 'Tu Jaane Na Remix' (Ajab Prem Ki Gazab Kahani).

The fifth and last track or rather item number "Fann Ban Gayi", picturised on Veena Malik (probably), starts off in style with Sunidhi Chauhan reciting some Haryanavi Cliché’s. Wondering about the extra "n" in 'Fann', hear closely Sunidhi's Haryanavi dictions when she sings 'Main To Teri Fann Ban gai'. As far as the tune is concerned, the song slightly falls in the same corridor as 'Main Chandigarh Di Star' (Bbuddah Hoga Tera Baap). Mayur Puri does write some spine-tingling lyrics, especially the Marwari lines sung by Kailash Kher. Good innovative effort overall which should attract more eyes after the video is out.

To sum up, Sachin-Jigar lives upto the expectations with the soundtrack having different varieties, from romantic numbers to Punjabi and item numbers where 'Piya O Re Piya'; 'Tu Mohabbat Hai' alongside 'Jeene De' are pure hit material while 'Pe Paa Pe Paa Ho Gaya' and 'Fann Ban Gayi' makes sure that one gets to tap their feet. But unfortunately, the Box Office result has not been impressive for the movies where Sachin-Jigar have composed, case in point 'F.A.L.T.U' and 'HTS' which went completely dhadaam at the Box Office. As a result, the soundtrack doesn't reach a wider audience and the songs doesn't enjoy a long shelf life. Hope 'TNLHG' fares well at the Big Screen with the film getting much limelight with Genelia and Riteish marriage being lined up. 
I rate it 3.5 out of 5
