Whenever the name Anubhav Sinha comes, I get excited just because he belongs to my city Allahabad. It is the first time that he is producing (and not directing) a film which is on the same boredom-of-excitement plot. Expecting a vivacious 3D experience and an underwater entertainment. It is having that multi composers formula which has got a great success this year.
Music Label: Sony Music
1. Bebasi – Singers: James, Aditi Paul; Music: Meet Bros. Anjaan
The track starts with a soothing sexy alaap of Aditi and then an interesting violin piece follows. James is the name which people often associate with the super hit Gangster song Bheegi Bheegi. He has hard hitting vocals which also work as bass instruments. The composition is quite different and soon it would gain the interest of the listener but after time one can loose the interest as the things become repetitive. Also, it is the length of the track that does matter. It’s a seven minute lengthy song which automatically would repel its listeners. Guitars and Drums are used very well. The arrangements could have been a little better specially in the hook line bebasi. A nice attempt though.
2. Tell Me How Much – Singers: Mika Singh, Poorbi; Music: Sharib-Toshi
It’s a fun song just like Most of Mika songs are. A masti dance number with a catchy hook line. Besides, having all these elements it doesn’t really impress. It is kind of an over use of Mika’s vocals which doesn’t at all set the mood. Although it’s dance number, one wouldn’t find proper beat shake his legs. Lyrics have some good-for-nothing words which loosens the interest completely. It’s a one time listen track.
3. Taakeedein – Singer: Sonu Nigam; Music: John Stewart
This is what someone waits for. A damn impressive track by the newcomer John. It clearly flashes the whole scenery of the movie. One of the best techno sounds used in recent times. Composition is sexy and gives a feel of adventure, terror and warning (taakeedein) of danger. Music, lyrics, arrangements all in one side. Sonu Nigam is the main attraction of the track. Not only by his name, but the way he sang is completely astounding. He is a never-listened-before avatar. His singing is just incredible. He made his voice unrecognizable. It is really difficult even for his fans to recognize his voice. A complete makeover. Though not getting much songs these days, but he impresses again this year. (last year with Abhi Mujhme Kahin). He seems to be all set to take away the trophies again for best singer. It is surely the WELCOME song.
4. Chikadanga – Singers: Manjari Fadnis, Madhurima Tulli; Music: Sharib-Toshi
Sharib-Toshi comes with another disgusting track. Besides having a nice rhythm (only in the hook line), it is simply a rubbish. It’s seems to be a situational track but has also meaningless lyrics and annoying composition. One of the worst arrangements of the percussion instruments. A passable track.
Warning is not a music oriented movie. So from this aspect, the soundtrack is quite decent. The best thing is that it offers a surprise song of the year Taakeedein. Thanks to Sonu Nigam, the most versatile singer ever in the country and also the composer John Stewart to use his soft silky voice in a unique way. If the track is a hit, it will grab many awards next year because it is both technically and soulfully excellent.
