Bullet Raja is directed by Tighmanshu Dhulia. Generally he doesn’t go for big famous composers but this time he has selected Sajid-Wajid as the captain of the soundtrack. After doing nothing much this year, they have got a big soundtrack. Let’s see, how they manage this one!
Music Label: T Series
1. Tamanche Pe Disco – Singer: RDB, Nindy Kaur, Raftaar; Music: RDB; Lyrics: Raftaar
It’s a kind of song that you might just enjoy two times unless you are brave enough to enjoy it the third time. Sorry, not enjoy, you can only listen to it. After that, you might lose your patience and call it a crap. Seen Once in a Blue Moon, musicians Rdb have created a track that has the capacity to live less than a week. The line aaja tujhe main kara doon tamanche pe disco sounds little good music wise. The rap like Yo Yo has lyrics which are nothing but the compilation of some previous rap tracks. I would not recommend you to listen it, otherwise your Tamancha can be damaged for ever.
It seems that Sajid-Wajid always reserves their best for Shreya. After a very very long time, Sajid-Wajid have made an exceptionally beautiful composition. It starts with a Matka sound and then comes the typical Sajid-Wajid guitar making remember Tere Mast Mast Do Nain. Shreya Ghoshal rules the track. The beauty lies in the slight variation when the notes smoothly but abruptly go down in oho leke ek duje ko. The first interlude has Bengali folk music. Although there doesn’t seem to be any need of putting that, that actually makes the song more beautiful. The second interlude has Jatin-Lalit like trumpet which gives the 90s feel. This feel gets heightened when Wajid gets on the mic as his vocals sound totally similar to Kumar Sanu. Undoubtedly, the WELCOME song.
3. Jai Govinda Jai Gopala – Singer: Neeraj Shridhar; Music: Sajid-Wajid; Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed
This one is pretty good. Though sounding little stale, the composition is nicely made. It has Tamboora being played in the whole song which definitely attracts the listeners. But after a certain duration the song gets repetitive and boring. The tune is like a Pritam-ish tune that is being crushed and is get stained. The lyrics are quite decent but do not appeal. It’s a one time listen track.
4. Dont Touch My Body – Singer: Mamta Sharma; Music: Sajid-Wajid; Lyrics: Sandeep Nath
Don’t know whether these kind of songs run for Sajid-Wajid or they themselves run for these songs. Waiting for the day when they would stop making these kind of silly tracks. After listening to it, you would feel that Tamanche Pe Disco was really a nice track. It has all those typical mujra instruments, along with Harmonium being the leading one. The antara has bit catchy tune but it’s better if you don’t even reach there. Move Forward!
5. Bullet Raja – Singers: Wajid, Keerthi Sagathia; Music: Sajid-Wajid; Lyrics: Kausar Munir
This title track only increases the silliness of the album. The beats are good having typical masala track rhythm. Wajid and Keerthi both sang pretty good. Lyrics are a big let down. Composition too is not at all appealing. The hook line Bullet Raja has some splendid trumpets in the background and that is really worth noticing.It has the ability to make you feel comfortable in the first attempt. The next won’t even come, don’t worry!
6. Satake Thoko – Singers: Wajid, Keerthi Sagathia, Danish Sabri; Music: Sajid-Wajid; Lyrics: Sandeep Nath
What’s that! Sataak Sataak! Starts with the same words, ends with the same. If I criticize the previous songs, slap me. This one is the worst of the worse. What the hell they have tried to make. The rhythm changes so abruptly after every two lines and it changes as if some anaadi has tried changing it. In the second interlude, electric guitar comes which plays a romantic sound. Anything can happen if the composers are the great Sajid-Wajid. At some instances, it sounds like folk song. If it really is, I would say the worst adaption of folk music ever! If you see, Sajid-Wajid anywhere, just give them two Sataak Sataak!
Bullet Raja is an album that was not expected to have good music as it is a film directed by Tighmanshu Dhulia. But since he opted for Sajid-Wajid this time, some little expectations were there. But after this soundtrack, Sajid-Wajid should never be counted in the list of big composers. If you remove Saamne Hai Savera from the soundtrack, it is nothing but a dustbin of some awful compositions.
The Final Verdict: NOT A PROBLEM
The Verdict Order: DISAGREE < NOT A PROBLEM < OKAY < POSSIBLE < AGREE
