Sajid Khan is back with his another masala entertainer. All his previous three films were blockbuster and so were their soundtracks. After using Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy twice, he used Sajid-Wajid in Housefull 2 which had some decent music. Now again the duo is back to compose in 80’s style.
80’s – the era which I call the Black era for our Hindi Music Industry.
1.Naino Mein Sapna – Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Amit Kumar; Music: Sajid-Wajid (Recreated); Lyrics: Indeevar
The 1980’s chartbuster song Naino Mein Sapna which was composed by Bappi Lahiri is recreated by Sajid-Wajid who opted for Shreya and Amit Kumar to give their voices. Firstly, the original song was not even a worth listen as it had the same irritating 80’s tune with awful arrangements. Then it is awfully recreated with no extra efforts to make it look decent. Shreya and Amit Kumar are sounding disgusting in this.
2.Taki Taki – Singers: Mika Singh, Shreya Ghoshal; Music: Sajid-Wajid (Recreated); Lyrics: Indeevar
Sajid was not satisfied with the remake of only one irritating track so he ordered the composers to remake another chartbuster song of Bappi Lahiri. To be on the safer side, they again chose their favourite Shreya Ghoshal, whose singing always hides their stodgy compositions. Along with Mika, this song sounds great if you just listen to the singing and not the composition. Arrangements are little better here than the former. Mika-Shreya saved the composers from drowning.
3.Dhoka Dhoka – Singers: Bappi Lahiri, Sunidhi Chauhan, Mamta Sharma; Music: Sajid-Wajid; Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan
When you start listening to it, you would surely think that Sajid Khan did the right thing to make the composers RE-create the two songs because they can’t Create any magic on their own and when they actually tried doing that, the result is Dhoka Dhoka. It’s a disgusting composition which can give negative feelings about music. So my request to all the listeners, please don’t even attempt this one. It’s a “GET OUT” song.
4.Bum Pe Laat – Singers: Shaan, Soham & Shubh Mukherjee; Music: Sajid-Wajid; Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan
Here Sajid-Wajid seemed to be creating another kind of Papa Toh Band Bajaayein as the interludes and the arrangements are exact same. It is being made like a nursery rhyme. The only interesting thing about this song is that Shaan is first time accompanied by his sons Soham and Shubh. Though they have a very short line to sing but they printed their debut mark in the industry.
5.Thank God It’s Friday – Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan; Music: Sachin-Jigar; Lyrics: Mayur Puri
At last comes a track which would provide you nice feelings and finally you would be glad to become a himmatwala to endure all the tracks. Composed by the guest composers Sachin-Jigar, this track is a must listen as it is a competitive track made in 80’s style sung by the ever dependable Sunidhi Chauhan. The interludes, the hook line, the arrangements and the lyrics al are nice and decent to make it a “WELCOME” song.
Don’t know why the film makers are trying to recreate the irritating 80’s music which we have left far behind. Today we are dealing with the golden era – II of music after 1950’s. So we don’t need to remember that disgusting decade. Sajid-Wajid now seriously have to do some magic. The youngsters Sachin-Jigar made a decent competitive track and on the same place these brothers are not able to make any listenable tune. It’s high time for them now!
