Vishal-Shekhar ended the previous year with a blast as the songs of Student Of The Year topped the charts and the soundtrack of Kahaani and Shanghai got much applaud from the critics as well as the listeners. They ended the year with Dharma Production and starting their 2013 with the same production house. Gippi, a story of a young teenage girl who is weird and her schoolmates make fun of her. Now, it’s the responsibility of Vishal-Shekhar to create some melody in her life! 😀
Music: Vishal-Shekhar; Lyrics: Anvita Dutt Guptan; Music Label: Sony Music
1. We Are Like This Only – Singers: Vishal, Shekhar, Hard Kaur
What a great start to the soundtrack by Vishal perfect with his vocals. His vocals well suited for the song and with electronic beats, it sounded even better. The lyrics are situational and beautiful. The rap by Hard Kaur is typical but nice. This track sounds like a western pop track but also it gives the full idea about what would be happening in the film. A typical Vishal-Shekhar track which would grow on multiple listening.
2. Baby Doll – Singers: Udit Narayan, Sukhwinder Singh
A superb catchy hook line and fabulous vocals made this a perfect one. Another typical Vishal-Shekhar where the dhol and nagada are so brilliantly mixed with electronic instruments that you couldn’t just make out the difference. The chemistry between the two singers is great. Udit Narayan sounds a little weird but the composition has covered all the defects. The catchy hook line is a worth listen for true music lovers beacause they can understand the beauty hidden in that.
3. Pehn Di Takki – Singers: Vishal Dadlani
You definitely didn’t expect this kind of track na! It disappoints like anything. The composition is not at all catchy and the arrangements are random and below expectations. lyrics are the same as the bollywood punjabi tracks generally have. Vishal’s singing is great but it offers nothing else.
4. Man Baavra – Singer: Shekhar Ravjiani
A soulful rendition with beautiful guitaring, this track is a must listen. Shekhar, as always, has sung it so soulfully and lively that it purifies our soul too. The arrangements in the antara are awesome and so is the guitar. If it had a catchy tune, things could have gone much better and beautiful.
5. Dil Kaagzi: Singer: Neeti Mohan
A semi classical approach by the duo has given this track the much needed attention and love. A beautiful inspirational song using some vintage instruments. The composition is incredible and so is the singing. Neeti Mohan is showing her versatility and her vocals are much applauding. The arrangements are classic and would make you remember Main Agar Kahoon from Om Shaanti Om. The hook line is catchy and the duo has given a classical touch to the line which is worth listen! This is the “WELCOME” track.
Gippi is a nice and decent soundtrack. Vishal-Shekhar has soulfully created the songs and the arrangements are superb though some songs were not catchy and memorable, still their work is quite decent. Lyrics are perfect and goes with the situation. Since this team has delivered some of the most popular and wonderful soundtracks, they were expected to be a little better with this. It could have been a much better soundtrack.
The Final Verdict: OKAY
