Salim-Sulaiman are a fabulous duo, creating many famous soundtracks. Its pleasantly surprising to see them come forward for a seemingly small film likeRabba Main Kya Karoon starring newcomer Akash Sharma and Akash Warsi. We expect to see a lot of exciting songs since it revolves around a Dehli wedding.
Music Label: T Series
1. Khulla Saand – Singer: Salim Merchant; Music: Salim-Sulaiman; Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
Khulla Sand kicks off Rabba Main Kya Karoon in addictive Punjabi number that morphs into something more techno. Salim Merchant’s bubbly vocals enhance this delicious rhythm. The only downside to this song are the brief English interludes. This one could be classified as the just the right Punjabi explosion.
We see Benny Dayal paired with our new popular female vocalist, Monali Thakur in Muh Meetha Kara De. This song is along the lines of Race 2′s Lat Lag Gaye, but more so a pop techno hybrid. Thakur barely gets a piece of this song, its Dayal for a majority. Its pretty good, but doesn’t have that much of distinguishing factor in the sea of songs.
3. Rabba Main Kya Karoon – Singers: Raj Pandit, Vidhi Sharma, Benny Dayal; Music: Salim-Sulaiman; Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya
The third song is the title song Rabba Main Kya Karoon. This song is sung by a trio of Raj Pandit, Vidhi Sharma, and Benny Dayal. Its very soft and rhythmic featuring light guitar and tabla. Its almost qawaaliesque in instrumentals, like the harmonium at pieces, but doesn’t break into a full qawaali. Vidhi Sharma’s vocals are refreshing and add a nice twist to the song. This song is truly a pleasant surprise for such a commercial looking album.
4. Dua – Singer: Akash Chopra; Music: Akash Chopra; Lyrics: Zaheer Anwar
Our main star, Akash Chopra, displays his vocals in Dua. This is another good surprise. Its a sad song that materializes into deep rock number. A good effort by Chopra, but his vocals get a little bit too intense at pieces. His raw vocals, however are something to admire. I would really want to see a lot more from this singer in the future.
5. Bari Barsi – Singer: Labh Janua; Music: Labh Janua; Lyrics: Sham Balkar
What is any soundtrack without of Punjabi Prince, Labh Janjua. Bari Barsi is most definitely our Punjabi wedding song for Rabba Main Kya Karoon. It is pumped with just the right components of thrill and dazzle of any wedding Punjabi song. It is not really anything we haven’t seen from Janjua, and almost sounds like a leftover from Band Baaja Baraat.
6. Brandy – Singers: Satyadev Singh, Akash Chopra; Music: Akash Chopra; Lyrics: Satyadev Singh, Akash Chopra
Well, a song like Brandy carries some expectations, especially when “shots” are yelled in the beginning. Sung by Satyadev Singh and Akash Chopra, this is a club number. It sounds really irritatingly mocking at parts.
Overall, Rabba Main Kya Karoon is a sturdy soundtrack loaded with lots of addictive beats. It has its flaws, and just one below average song.
The Final Verdict: OKAY
