Welcome the Trance!! (The Shaukeens – Music Review)

Shaukeen an old film based on the same concept has been remade into The Shaukeens to make it look and sound modern. A story about 3 old flirts. It’s  a multi composer album consisting of four composers, two by Yo Yo Honey Singh, two by Vikram Nagi, and one each by Arko and Hard Kaur.

1. Alcohol: Singer: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Lyrics: Sahil Kaushal

If somebody’s drinking Chaar Botal Vodka, then obviously he would be called Alcoholic so that’s only what Yo Yo is trying to say. It’s kind of a sequel to Chaar Botal Vodka. Surprisingly the song has not been written by Yo Yo this time. It’s Sahil Kushal who had written Party All Night from Boss. Leaving the lyrics as it’s an old tiresome formula of writing, the beats are good enough to shake you though not better than some of Yo Yo’s previous songs. Honey Singh always gets tolerable for Akshay Kumar. 


2. Manali Trance – Singers: Neha Kakkar, Lil Golu;  Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Lyrics: Sahil Kaushal

Honey Singh must have been very busy these days and that’s why he is not writing his songs now. It doesn’t matter also as Sahil Kaushal’s lyrics have hardly any significance here. Trance is a genre of EDM which is not very popular in Bollywood so it’s a treat for Hindi film lovers to enjoy the amazing Trance managed very responsibly by Yo Yo. No one other than Neha Kakkar could have performed it so superbly. Lil Golu has done some Yo Yo tracks and as always sounds very much like Honey Singh. This is an innovative version of Yo Yo Honey Singh so enjoy it! #WelcomeSong


3. Ishq Kutta Hai – Singer: Mika Singh;  Music: Vikram Nagi;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed

Vikram Nagi impresses with the beats and the arrangements. Even having not-so-good tune, the song engages only because of the kind of beats it has. A three antara song which Shabbir Ahmed has written with betterment as the lyrics atleast did have some meaning. Ishq has been compared with a dog (not a new concept) and using Mika in these kind of songs is getting exhausting for the listeners. Vikram should have had worked more on the basic tune. A decent engaging track though not having the retaining power. 


4. Meherbani – Singer: Jubin Nautiyal;  Music: Arko;  Lyrics: Arko

We just have heard him in Ek Mulaqat from Sonali Cable and we liked him. It’s Jubin’s second song and he nails it one more time. His voice is damn soothing and has does enter deeply into you. Arko is fabulous equally with music and lyrics. Just after a beautiful track Dildara from Tamanchey, he again delivers a beautiful romantic track having a very connecting lyrics that can be sung by any lover while proposing. It’s a “thank you” song to the person you love. A beautiful comparison of what “she” is and what “he” is for her. Hai saaz tu, tera tarj main, Tu hai dawa, aur marz main, Dildar tu, khud garz main. 


5. Aashiq Mizaaj – Singer: Aman Trikha;  Music: Hard Kaur;  Lyrics: Siddharth Banerjee

This is all about aashiqui. The word has been used here so many times that it would definitely have not been used combining Aashiqui and Aashiqui 2. Hard Kaur completely fails to provide the needed joy and fun in this track. Selecting Aman Trikha is the only good thing in this track. The tune, beats, arrangements all are sounding very stale, particularly the tune of mukhda sounds very similar to Dilliwali Girlfriend. Lyrics is pathetic, clearly showing how less creative the lyricist is. Not worth the fun.


6. Lonely – Singer: Anu Malik;  Music: Vikram Nagi;  Lyrics: Vikram Nagi

Why Anu Malik? Vikram Nagi, why Anu Malik? I don’t find a single reason for choosing Anu Malik for this otherwise lovely track. The computerized vocals surprisingly didn’t irritate me and the antara is truly awesome. Now bringing Anu Malik and that computerized voice, this song goes into the humor zone which is otherwise a decent romantic track. This song would definitely be in my playlist if somebody other than Anu Malik would have sung it. Nice composition is sadly driven to a humorous ride.  


The Shaukeens is for the shaukeens of Yo Yo Honey Singh. Leaving Hard Kaur, each of the composers impresses.


The Final Verdict:  OKAY
