It’s Two out of Four!! (Gabbar Is Back – Music Review)

So, Akshay Kumar is back with again a massy entertainer based on corruption. It’s a Viacom 18 and Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s joint venture. The movie has been directed by a debutante Krish. The soundtrack has been kept very short consisting of just four songs, two by Chirantan Bhatt, and one each by Yo Yo Honey Singh and Manj Musik.

1. Teri Meri Kahaani – Singers: Arijit Singh, Palak Muchhal;  Music: Chirantan Bhatt;  Lyrics: Manoj Yadav – Last year the composer-lyricist jodi who cracked a famous 70’s super hit track and gave it a wonderful modern approach which was coincidentally picturized on Akshay Kumar only, has delivered yet again a cracking soft rock-based track that is superbly catchy, outstandingly handled by Arijit and aptly supported by Palak. A chartbuster material!! #WelcomeSong

2. Coffee Peetey Peetey – Singers: Dev Negi, Paroma Das Gupta;  Music: Chirantan Bhatt;  Lyrics: Kumaar – This is very unusual from what Chirantan Bhatt generally does. The beats that have been wonderfully programmed are the highlight of this track. Dev Negi sounds way too similar to Arijit along with Paroma’s decent attempt and Kumaar’s uniquely simple lyrics make this song a worth listen!

3. Aao Raja – Singers: Neha Kakkar, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Teflon;  Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Lyrics: Sahil Kaushal – And then there’s another composer-lyricist jodi from whom you can expect nothing but some non-intelligent and non-creative stuff which relies only on the programming which also has been done in a way that sounds too irritating to attempt it twice. The way Neha Kakkar has sung, although intentionally, sounds awful. This is one of the most disappointing works of Yo Yo Honey Singh. 

4. Warna Gabbar Aa Jayega – Singers: Manj Musik, Raftaar;  Music: Manj Musik;  Lyrics: Manj Musik – A sort of a theme track that has just one line on the repeat mode consisting of some gabbar related dialogues and a minor rap by Raftaar. Not worth the time.

A soundtrack otherwise spoiled by Yo Yo Honey Singh and Manj Musik, is beautifully handled by Chirantan Bhatt by his two cracking deliveries. 

The Final Verdict:  OKAY
