Sajid-Wajid teamed up again with David Dhawan and it is their fourth film with the director. No matter how much Sajid-Wajid disappoint, their music has always left a good impression on the listeners in every David Dhawan film. Well, something is there that he extracts from the duo which other directors fail to. Does this album has the capability to overpower Sajid-Wajid’s best work Partner? I asked the same question before Chashme Buddoor review and the answer was “No”.

1. Besharmi Ki Height – Singers: Benny Dayal, Shalmali Kholgade; Lyrics: Kumaar, Kausar Munir
A very catchy but ordinary Pritam-ish club track filled with vivacious techno sounds. The tune is quite catchy and also sounds classy unlike recent Sajid-Wajid tracks. It seems that Sajid-Wajid are exhausted of delivering flops and that’s why they have tried to leave no stone unturned by using the Club experts Benny and Shalmali. It’s a great jodi. They have always impressed in many of Pritam’s compositions and they does the same this time. Mukhda and antara both are pretty attractive and pleases you instantly. I am surprised with the classiness that Sajid-Wajid have shown in this. It is only after Partner when they made a decent classy dance track. But what about the lyrics? Here, Kumaar and Kausar both have been credited. I guess that’s because they both don’t want to be blamed for writing such dirty lyrics. Catchy composition, cheap lyrics. And hence it will be played everywhere on DJ.
2. Palat Tera Hero Idhar Hai – Singers: Arijit Singh; Lyrics: Kausar Munir
A pretty good adaption of the famous track Jahan Teri Ye Nazar Hai. The opening and closing Guitar riff is superb and makes you remember the old Sajid-Wajid who often used to bring such awesomeness in their compositions. Thankfully only Kausar has been credited in lyrics who has written the Govinda type phrases Coffee pilaun, Picture dikhau etc. The real rockstar is Arijit. What a splendid and energetic singing he has done! He has sung the word palat everytime in a different way. The composition is average. It is Arijit who takes it to another level and his singing gives the listeners numerous reasons to listen it on a repeat mode. The Arijit’s show. #WelcomeSong
3. Shanivaar Raati – Singers: Arijit Singh, Shalmali Kholgade; Lyrics: Kumaar
So, the culprit is Kumaar and not Kausar. Disappointing lyrics here again by Kumaar which is combined with Sajid-Wajid’s stale catchy tune. Things which we already have heard in 90’s David Dhawan films, nothing is different here. Sajid-Wajid have kept indianized arrangements as it’s a desi track. Arijit seems to be singing forcefully. His hoye hoye in many parts are damn annoying and sounded cheap. This track was not made for Shalmali. Her vocals are suited for urbanized tracks. So, wrong choice of singers. Do not go with the attractive name. Yes, Shanivaar Raati is actually a very attractive name. That’s how I got attracted.
4. Galat Baat Hai – Singers: Javed Ali, Neeti Mohan; Lyrics: Kausar Munir, Danish Sabri
I love this rhythm. The same rhythm which had made everyone mad in Tumse Milke Dil Ka Hai Jo Haal from Main Hoon Naa. Since then, it had become one of my favorite rhythms. But again, it has been presented here in an un-classy way. I liked the tune also but not the lyrics. There’s nothing in the lyrics to like about. Javed Ali is perfect for the track and Neeti Mohan also impressed as it is her first desi type song. A nice tune but bad arrangements and lyrics.
Besharmi Ki Height is seriously the height of besharmi in the lyrics. Composition is classy and catchy. Title track is fun, based on the typical David Dhawan films’ characters. Arijit is flawless in this but loses his charm in Shanivaar Raati and the track just settles on being an average number. The so-called only romantic track has Javed Ali and Neeti Mohan bagging the responsibility of the soundtrack in Galat Baat Hai which has a likable tune but below average lyrics. Main Tera Hero is a soundtrack that is easy on ears and easy to forget. Shall we assume it to be Sajid-Wajid’s comeback in good music production or shall we just sit and wait for next David Dhawan film to come!
The Final Verdict: OKAY
The Verdict Order: DISAGREE < NOT A PROBLEM < OKAY < POSSIBLE < AGREE
Listeners Ki Sameekshaa (Public Review)
- Palat and Besharmi are best, rest average.
- Last two songs are not upto the mark, first two songs are awesome.
- Very average album. Besharmi Ki Height is the only above average song for me.
- I like the title track only. Rest of the songs are very disappointing.
- It is the only album which already has every kind of song.
- When the trailer of Main Tera Hero was out, my expectation was huge. When, the first song released, I was more excited!! But, when the full songs released, I’m not happy on the outcome….
- Repetitive….. Its kinda S-W repetitive style….
- i loved Besharmi Ki Height, Palat n Shanivaar Raati… Palat is my fav from the album…
