Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Music Label: T-Series

1. Main Woh Chaand – Singer: Darshan Raval;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan – Darshan Raval has become one of the most regular singers of HR. His vocals really suit the HR style of music. The composition is actually likable and a proper Reshammiya stuff but the arrangements are very Mithoon-ish. The ordinary digital beats increase the typicality of the track and make it sound repetitive.

2. Bekhudi – Singers: Darshan Raval, Aditi Singh Sharma;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan – On the lines of Naina Re, the song does not fall into the trap of repetitiveness. HR has done fine arrangements here, creating a tune of his very own style, having Darshan on board which all add up to make it sound really good. The HR kind of tune. 

3. Wafa Ne Bewafai – Singers: Arijit Singh, Neeti Mohan, Suzanne D’Mello;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan – The album gets even better with this song having constant anthem-like beats which sound amazing only till a certain period of time. The arrangements could have been varied, especially in Neeti’s antara. This would have sounded equally good in HR’s voice too. One ought to love it if one has a developed taste of HR’s style. #WelcomeSong

4. Teri Yaad / Teri Yaad (Reprise) – Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Badshah / Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed – Although it’s also one of the typical HR style of compositions, it does not belong to the likable ones. HR seems to have tried the Khiladi 786 kind of rap oriented track but has failed miserably. Badshah’s rap is a huge let down, so is HR’s composition. But the Reprise version is quite soothing and likable.

5. Adhuri Zindagi – Rituraj Mohanty;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan – This is very unlike HR and this non-HR approach of HR doesn’t seem to have gone in his favor. Rituraj does effort but doesn’t seem much impressive. The duration should have been shorter. Arrangements are good, the composition is not.

6. Ishq Samundar (Reloaded) – Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Kanika Kapoor;  Lyrics: Anand Raj Anand – It should be quite interesting to know how and why did Anand Raj Anand use his own composition in HR’s film and not even take credit for music but only for lyrics, which was not even penned by him but Dev Kohli. Moreover, Kanika is not even near to what Sunidhi has done in the original and the hook line in HR’s voice does not sound as effective as it did in Anand’s voice. Sunidhi is incomparable in the original. 

An album in which Himesh Reshammiya could have done a lot better than what he did. 

The Final Verdict:  OKAY





Engaging!! (Sanam Teri Kasam – Music Review)

The film is directed by the director duo Radhika Rao and Vinay Sapru. It has Harshvardhan Rane and Mawra Hocane in lead roles. The music is given by Himesh Reshammiya.

Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Music Label: Eros Music 

1. Sanam Teri Kasam / Sanam Teri Kasam (Reprise) – Singers: Ankit Tiwari, Palak Muchhal / Mohammed Irfan, Palak Muchhal;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan – The title track is a melodious Reshammiya product, typically starts with high notes which Ankit Tiwari sounded more comfortable with, than Mohammed Irfan in the reprise who seemed a bit lost in the mukhda but regained his comfort in antara. Palak sounds sweet with one line repeated after each stanza. A could-have-been-better kind of melody. 

2. Kheech Meri Photo – Singers: Neeti Mohan, Akasa Singh & Darshan Raval;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan – If it’s intentional, as does it seem to be, it’s one of the most interesting tracks of Himesh. The weirdness of Neeti’s rendered hook line is clearly the main attraction of the song. The song doesn’t make much sense when you focus on the lyrics but who cares till it entertains you completely. Must Listen!

3. Bewajah – Singer: Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan – The composer comes before the mic for this one and does the job fabulously. It’s a strong melody from him on which he laid the arrangements quite decently with Drums, Guitars and Piano accompanying each other nicely. Impressive. 

4. Tera Chehra – Singer: Arijit Singh;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed – Guitar and Tabla quite sportingly accompanies Arijit right from the start until Violin enters after the first antara and refreshes the whole track which might have gone monotonous. A romantic track rendered by Arijit with perfection and composed by Himesh with sincerity. 

5. Haal-E-Dil (Male) / Haal-E-Dil (Female) – Singer: Sreerama Chaandra / Neeti Mohan;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan – An extremely effective track with the melancholic mood which Himesh sets fire to with his beautiful composition. Both the versions are equally good though the male version having more charm in the mukhda and the female one having that in the antara, the melody remains compelling. #WelcomeSong

6. Ek Number – Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Neeti Mohan;  Lyrics: Himesh Reshammiya – It’s quite a decent likable track if you ignore the lyrics. It’s quite difficult to do that though. Given the fact that Himesh has written it, the lyrics is nice on that basis but otherwise, it’s actually degrading the otherwise an enjoyable track. Antara has a very sudden seriousness yet it doesn’t create any jerk in the fun mood of the song. Lyrics written by the composer himself contributes towards spoiling his own composition. 

7. Main Teri Yaadon Mein – Singer: Arijit Singh;  Lyrics: Subrat Sinha – It’s such a nice composition that it had sounded fabulous if the techno sounds were not being kept in the background. Even if they were, they should not have been kept constant. They needed to be having a lot of variations in order to make it interesting. Good melody, gets monotonous due to arrangements. 

Thoroughly impressive album from Himesh Reshammiya.

The Final Verdict:  OKAY





Musically Stubborn Rajshri!! (Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Music Review)

This is probably the grandest film of Himesh Reshammiya as Sooraj Barjatya is back with Salman Khan after a very long time with a period drama based on Mark Twain’s “The Kind And The Pauper”. Rajshri films have been famous for their melodies, so the music of this film is being looked forward to.

Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil;  Music Label: T-Series

1. Prem Leela – Singers: Aman Trikha, Vineet Singh – This much awaited soundtrack starts with a routine Himesh style, that very sound which you feel can be heard in any wedding orchestra program. The composer doesn’t seem to have shown the much needed care. He rather treated it as any of his usually ordinary compositions. Aman Trikha sounds very Himesh in this and Irshad Kamil seems to have done efforts but mostly ends up failing. The usual Reshammiya stuff.

2. Prem Ratan Dhan Payo – Singer: Palak Muchhal – The song starts ecstatically with Palak’s vocals sounding much matured now, quite comparable to that of Shreya. Sadly, it loses the charm because of a sluggishly composed hook line which sounds stale 90s, particularly because of the arrangements. Keeping the arrangements 90s like, doesn’t go in favor of the song as the melody is too week to hold attention or stick into the mind of the listener. The hook line spoils the grandeur. 

3. Jalte Diye – Singers: Harshdeep Kaur, Shabab Sabri, Vineet Singh, Anweshaa – Now, this is something of the level that was “actually” expected from Himesh to deliver for this album. The arrangements are so powerful, clearly giving the royal feeling which goes well with the mood of the film. Himesh clarifies in this song that why Vineet is not getting his due rotis. He sounds so much like Sonu Nigam that one doubts if there was any harm in using the original man himself. Anweshaa is a surprising package. She is brilliant in engaging the listener with her glorifying vocals. Harshdeep has a short yet special role in giving a really unique start to the song. Irshad Kamil’s lovely lyrics add up to the pleasure. Something which was expected. Lovely melody, brilliant arrangements. #WelcomeSong

4. Aaj Unse Milna Hai – Singer: Shaan – Ah! So depressingly 90s! Even the lyrics are so cliche`d 90s aaj unse milna hai hume… thodi barfi varfi lete chale.. thodi mathri vathri lete chale. Barring Shaan’s soothing vocals, there’s nothing to hear in the song. More than a tribute or an effort to make it sound authentically 90s, it seems to be an effort of imitating the 90s music which ofcourse would have been done unintentionally by the composer. Too 90s to digest in 2015!

5. Jab Tum Chaho – Singers: Mohammed Irfan, Palak Muchhal, Darshan Raval – Another dated melody, completely staled which Palak, Mohammed Irfan along with Darshan Raval totally fail to keep it engaging. The above song had Shaan as the savior, this 90s stuff has nobody to save and hence, it sinks entirely! Dated, Boring, Stale! Yawn!!

6. Halo Re – Singer: Aman Trikha – Among the dated melodies, this track rendered by Aman Trikha, fairs better than the rest. A not-so-fast dance track that has quite an engaging rhythm and mood-setting arrangements. Kamil’s lyrics suitably fall into the composition that has indeed a decent melody. Aman Trikha is a performer! Decent effort!

7. Tod Tadaiyya – Singers: Neeraj Shridhar, Neeti Mohan – Neeraj Shridhar doesn’t suit well in the song, Neeti Mohan is too loud for unknown reasons. A somewhat quirk-filled naughty song in terms of a Barjatya film, inspite of being catchy, doesn’t hold the interest for long. Tries too hard to be enjoyable.

8. Bachpan Kahan? – Singer: Himesh Reshammiya – The composer arrives behind the mic to sing a simple yet engaging melody about childhood, excellently written by Irshad Kamil. The arrangements could have been more modern as the song is not suffering from the 90s fever but it neither has the sound of the current era. Sweet n Simple

9. Murli Ki Taanon Si – Singer: Shaan – A slow version of Aaj Unse Milna Hai with those chorus and daphli, it flashes the background score of all those 90s family dramas. It is short yet/hence, more engaging than the original. The one-minute slow version fairs better than the original. 

10. Aaj Unse Kehna Hai – Singers: Shaan, Palak Muchhal, Aishwarya Majumdar – Yet another version of the same song. The song which has the most 90s sound, sadly has three versions. Again, this version also scores much better than the original. Aishwarya lifts up the song well, joined by Palak and Shaan later when it gets fused with the hook line of the title track. Aishwarya impresses!

An album with weak melodies, dated sound, and not-so-impressive lyrics by Himesh Reshammiya and team leaves us with disappointment.

The Final Verdict:   OKAY


Not So Well!! (All Is Well – Music Review)

I always wished that the phrase All Is Well in 3 Idiots should have been the name of the movie but since Rajkumar Hirani didn’t use it as its title, Umesh Shukla gained this opportunity. It’s a family comedy. The music is given by Himesh Reshammiya, Amaal Mallik, Mithoon, Meet Bros Anjjan, Anand Milind.

1. Chaar Shanivaar – Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Armaan Malik, Badshah;  Music: Amaal Mallik;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed – Amaal chose the right person to do justice with his composition. Vishal Dadlani is an energy that forces you to leave everything aside and dance. Amaal has done excellent percussions with a very amusingly motivating line by Shabbir Ahmed. For once in my life I liked his writing “hafte mein chaar shanivaar hone chahiye” I guess there’s nobody in this world who won’t agree to it. A fun catchy number! Dance to the fullest! #WelcomeSong

2. Baaton Ko Teri – Singer: Arijit Singh;  Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed – With the quality of beats and that very familiar sound, you can easily predict it to be a Himesh Reshammiya song. The Reshammiya effect is heard in Arijit’s style of singing too. The song stays to be very ordinary and has not a single impressive element. Extreme ordinariness.

3. Nachan Farrate – Singers: Meet Bros Anjjan, Kanika Kapoor;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan;  Lyrics: Kumaar – Whatever they have been composing after Baby Doll, although hasn’t been of that level, still the each of the compositions have remained catchy enough to tap your feet or nod your head. Kanika Kapoor is although overused by them, sounds really good in every track. The same repetitive surprisingly stuff still works.

4. Mere Humsafar – Singer: Mithoon, Tulsi Kumar;  Music: Mithoon, Anand Milind;  Lyrics: Amitabh Verma, Majrooh Sultanpuri – The 90s superhit romantic track from Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak has been remade by Mithoon with his cliched digital beats and little bit of Guitar. With Tulsi’s vocals, it becomes very T-Series. Mithoon hasn’t done much with the composition so why not would one prefer listening to the original in the voice of Udit Narayan! Even after being remade, it still sounds 90s.

5. Tu Milade – Singer: Ankit Tiwari;  Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Mayur Puri – Another track by Himesh is set on the Rock background with unnecessary loudness and the monotonous tune having Ankit Tiwari’s vocals autotuned, doesn’t help Mayur Puri’s lyrics fully flourish. Something to ignore.

6. Yolo – Singer: Sreeraamachaandra;  Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Kumaar – This is very unlike Himesh Reshammiya as the handling of the techno sounds doesn’t resemble his style in this track. Also, the hook line has a tune very different from what his hook line generally are. But that doesn’t mean that this track is enjoyable. No! Not at all! You only live once. So don’t waste your time listening to it.

Amaal Mallik scores the best, Meet Bros Anjjan has their regular enjoyable stuff but the rest disappoints.

The Final Verdict:  NOT A PROBLEM


Beware of this Irritating Keeda!! (Action Jackson – Music Review)

After a musical success like R..Rajkumar, Prabhu Deva switched to Himesh Reshammiya after working with Sajid-Wajid, Sachin-Jigar and Pritam. I would call it a bad switching. No? What? Himesh is a good composer? Yes, he is but not this time, no, not at all this time! Beware of him! Here, read and know why I am warning you.

1. Keeda – Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Neeti Mohan;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed

Those buzzing insects that irritates you in the rainy season, insects which look and sound so bad that you can’t tolerate them even for a second, well this song is not that bad, which means you can tolerate it atleast for a minute. After hearing this track, I felt pity for Neeti Mohan that after few years when she’ll look at the list of the songs she did in the beginning of her career, she’ll come across Keeda and feel ashamed. But being a young singer, you simply can’t reject a song from a composer like Himesh Reshammiya. Now more than Himesh, let’s come to highlighter of this track, Mr. Shabbir Ahmed. From many years I have been trying to find some meaning in his lyrics but this man always fails me. This time, he has crossed the limits of being a nonsense lyricist. Okay, I have to mention some lines from this epic track – Tumse milne ka keeda andar hai, dating karle tu, open calender hai, som, mangal, budh, guru, shukr, shani ravi, aaja meri gali, aaja meri gali. 


2. Punjabi Mast – Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Ankit Tiwari, Arya Acharya, Vineet Singh, Alam Gir Khan, Neeti Mohan;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan

HR used so many singers for THIS song!! Shabbir’s brother from another mother is Mr. Sameer Anjaan who has just kept on degrading himself in these years. Bringing a hook line Surya ast, Punjabi mast, depicts how much he has lowered down his standard. HR seems to be no different, using some outdated techno sounds and badly arranged Nagada and a waste queue of such good singers. Not a catchy hook, not a well arranged sound and a landing into the “similar” kind of stuffs.


3. Chichora Piya – Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Shalmali Kholgade;  Lyrics: SameerAnjaan

There’s a hook tune that is somewhat very addictive but the rest of the song is simply intolerable. Situation gets worse when HR enters with his high pitched vocals and croons some horrible lines that he has composed with Sameer Anjaan. Pity on Shalmali as well. Till now, he used her in decent tracks but now she is also trapped in that horribleness. HR has used Shehnai in its baddest form and arranged the song in a very unattractive manner. Yes that tune attracts you from distance, but do not go near to it!


4. Dhoom Dhaam – Singers: Ankit Tiwari, Palak Muchhal;  Lyrics: Sameer Anjaan

What a late 80’s song HR has made! Ankit is the track’s highlight and Palak sounds as artificial as always. I liked that Daphli but it hardly matters as the composition and lyrics are so damn stale that it’s really hard to believe that you are actually listening to a 2014 song. What the hell does bas teri dhoom dhaam hai mean! The antara gets even more stale and stodgy and leaves you with nothing but just tolerance.


5. Gangster Baby – Singers: Neeraj Shridhar, Neeti Mohan;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed

Neeti Mohan’s another horrible track which is a kind of a theme track where Neeraj Shridhar’s avoidable rap and Ajay Devgn’s me criminally good only worsen it. Shabbir’s extremely nonsensical lyrics doesn’t provide the meaning of a single line it says. HR has kept the beats similar to what we hear in low standard orchestra parties. This is not even worth touching. All I want to say is bechaari Neeti!


Himesh Reshammiya’s worst performance till date. One of the most badly composed, written and recorded albums of all time. 


The Final Verdict:  DISAGREE

“Dil mein bhi nahi aata aur Samajh mein bhi nahi”!! (Kick – Music Review)

What do you expect from the songs of a Salman Khan movie? At least two tapori songs, one extra breezy romantic song and a nautanki song where the lyricist goes mad writing nonsense lyrics and the choreographer loses its originality and lets Salman be the choreographer. But one doesn’t expect three songs sung by Salman Khan himself. Two songs are by Himesh Reshammiya, one by Meet Bros Anjjan and one by Yo Yo Honey Singh.Kick_poster

1. Jumme Ki Raat (Version 1) / Jumme Ki Raat (Version 2) – Singers: Mika Singh, Palak Muchhal / Salman Khan, Palak Muchhal;  Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Kumaar, Shabbir Ahmed

This is one of those songs which gets a “hit” tag instantly and the listeners forget it probably after a month. A version sung by Mika would not impress you much and the other by Salman Khan would irritate you much. Palak has an avoidable role as she just has to always be fake Shreya Ghoshal and sing with a voice as thin as she can make it. Tune by Himesh although not very impressive, is quite engaging. Himesh has kept same arrangements in both the versions just having a difference in the starting. The Horns in Mika’s version has a more classy texture while in Salman’s version, it begins abruptly with more than enough energy. Two lyricists were needed for writing this song. This is quite an amazing joke of this year. According to rumors Shabbir Ahmed wasn’t able to write the song after the mukhda so Kumaar came on board and wrote the rest of the song. This rumor can easily be believed by seeing Shabbir Ahmed’s previous performances. Not for class, not for mass, only for wedding and only for a month or two.


2. Hangover – Singers: Salman Khan, Meet Bros Anjjan, Shreya Ghoshal;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan;  Lyrics: Kumaar

Surprisingly, Salman’s vocals are sounding very decent in this track. Thanks to Meet Bros Anjjan for that. You can call his voice a distorted sound of Mohit Chauhan’s voice. The composers seem to have done a good amount of work with Salman’s vocals to make it sound comfortable with Shreya Ghoshal. They have done a good use of Violin and the style of Piano is very much similar to that of Himesh Reshammiya. Also, the song is a bit long. It could have been much shorter. The line dil se kabhi na utre is the best in the song. The only thing that is not workable is Kumaar’s forcefully written lyrics. The word Hangover clearly seems to be added without any sense. A good decent romantic track spoiled by the title of the song “Hangover”.


3. Tu Hi Tu (Version 1) / Tu Hi Tu (Reprise) / Tu Hi Tu (Version 2) – Singer: Mohd. Irfan / Neeti Mohan / Salman Khan;  Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Mayur Puri

The first version by Mohd. Irfan is ofcourse good because the song is really beautiful. Raaste har jagah sirf tera pata sounds really awesome. It’s a soothing romantic song with a typical Himesh Piano along with the melodious Violin. Somehow Mohd. Irfan’s voice didn’t sound crystal clear this time. However Neeti Mohan in the Reprise version also held the song very well with obviously in a different scale. Lyrics by Mayur Puri is the highlight of this song. The way he has laid the words on Himesh’s tune is damn perfect. Lyrics in antara are also composition oriented and likable. Salman Khan somehow didn’t sound as good as he did in Hangover. Salman makes this composition a little staid so avoid Salman’s version and you are left with the other two.


4. Yaar Naa Miley – Singers: Yo Yo Honey Singh, Jasmine Sandlas;  Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Lyrics: Yo Yo Honey Singh, Jasmine Sandlas

Honey Singh should stop his discoveries of finding new singers. Whoever this Jasmine Sandlas is, she is simply pathetic. The composition gets included in the list of worst songs by Honey Singh. This singer makes it even worse. Honey Singh has also given her the lead role and kept satisfied himself with the rap. If not tune, beats are always a speciality in a Honey Singh song but it is the first time that his song has disappointed in this department also. One of the worst songs of Yo Yo Honey Singh. 


5. Hai Yehi Zindagi (Version 1) / Hai Yehi Zindagi (Version 2) – Singer: Salman Khan / Mohd. Irfan;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan;  Lyrics: Kumaar

You can call this a sad version of Hangover as similar traits can be found here specially the line Hangover sung by Shreya Ghoshal. Although there are two version among which one of them is by Salman, you won’t be able to crack much difference in the singing of both the versions. Salman’s voice has strictly been auto tuned. Mohd. Irfan is very much in his original form and sounded quite decent in this beautiful composition by Meet Bros Anjjan. They have used Violin in almost the whole song and style is very much similar to that of Hangover. Kumaar has also written it nicely. Rhythm is beautifully soothing. Definitely the #WelcomeSong.


Kick – This album is filled with numerous versions having just four songs among which three have been sung by Salman Khan himself. His voice in two of them have sounded bad but the one by Meet Bros Anjjan has surprisingly sounded very decent. Overall, Mayur Puri gave the best performance in the whole album as he got just one song to write and he wrote it excellently. No wonder these are Salman Khan film’s songs. Cheap (Jumme Ki Raat), Nonsense (Hangover) and Pathetic (Yaar Naa Miley) but responsibly saved by Himesh Reshammiya’s Tu Hi Tu and Meet Bros Anjjan’s Hai Yehi Zindagi. Better than recent Salman’s film’s albums.

HR missed the chance!! (Humshakals – Music Review)

The Xpose in which Himesh Reshammiya acted and gave music, satisfied us with its music inspite of few annoying elements. Since his first film this year performed well, expectations increased. Many were waiting for the collaboration of Sajid Khan and Himesh Reshammiya. People started waiting more when Sajid Khan said in an interview that “Himesh Reshammiya is the fourth hero of the film as he has provided awesome music.” Now, the thing is to check to what extent was Sajid Khan right.Humshakals_poster

Music: Himesh Reshammiya;  Music Label: Sony Music / Zee Music Company


1. Caller Tune – Singers: Neeraj Shridhar, Neeti Mohan;  Lyrics: Sameer

This was the first song that released and withing days it climbed the charts. There’s Himesh’s sound and Sajid Khan’s style and both are blended for good. Neeraj Shridhar has a must song for Sajid Khan’s films. He performed amazingly just like he did in his previous films. The tune is damn catchy and it is loved for the variation that happens in tu mera hai nasha, tu mera hai junoon. Even if the song is getting hit, its lyrics are simply nonsense. Himesh Reshammiya always misuses Neeti Mohan’s vocals like he did for The Xpose. All the entertainment is right here!


2. Piya Ke Bazaar – Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Shalmali Kholgade, Palak Muchhal;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed

                 This song defines the mujra feel quite well as Himesh has composed a justifying tune. Although the basic tune is melodious and catchy, the yelping tune in the starting is awful. The combination of Palak and Shalmali sounds really good. The portion given to Shalmali is the limelight of the song. The arrangements are authentic and Himesh’s singing is also likable. The culprit is just Shabbir Ahmed. It’s not very surprising because you can’t expect any better lyrics from him. Satisfactory, considering the level of Himesh and Shabbir Ahmed.


3. Just Look Into My Eyes – Singers: Ash King, Neeti Mohan;  Lyrics: Sameer

Himesh Reshammiya’s club songs have always been very different from that of other composers. To make it easier, Jhalak Dikhlaja was also a club song. The starting techno tune is damn catchy. Ash King is a perfect choice for this track as it has many English phrases in between which sound perfect in his voice. I guess, Himesh has some enmity in his mind for Neeti Mohan. Again, she has been given a very neglected portion of the song. It has few different arrangement styles but the composition is too average to praise. Not so great but atleast different from regular club songs.


4. Barbaad Raat – Singers: Sanam Puri, Shalmali Kholgade;  Lyrics: Mayur Puri

This is a song which could have been really awesome. Sanam Puri and Shalmali together have rocked it. Mukhda is truly lovable but only till hona jaaye barbaad teri meri raat. After that, Himesh has completely spoiled the song by making that weird sound as if someone is brushing his teeth. The use of the word “baby” is too much which is sounding odd. Otherwise, the lyrics are pretty good. The beats are foot tapping and very different from the style of Himesh. A song which could have been damn addictive.


5. Hum Pagal Nahin Hai – Singer: Himesh Reshammiya;  Lyrics: Mayur Puri

Himesh Reshammiya rocked this by his singing but fails to compose an attractive tune. A beautiful catchy tune could have been composed on this amazing lyrics of Mayur Puri. The rhythm is well made but arrangements could have been more improvised. Basically, it’s a typical Sajid Khan song made full of nonsense humor. I guess, this pagal nahin hai phrase would be suggested by Sajid Khan only. The stuttering by Himesh in the end sounds nice. If you love Sajid Khan’s nonsense, it’s a treat for you!


6. Khol De Dil Ki Khidki – Singers: Mika Singh, Palak Muchhal;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed

The song starts with Banjo after which follows Jaws Harp for the comical gesture. In terms of Sajid Khan’s films, Himesh Reshammiya fails as the songs of the similar situation created by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Sajid-Wajid were far better. Also, I wonder how much the directors influence in the sound of music. The sound which comes after khol de dil ka door is so similar to the sound used in Papa Toh Band Bajayein. Shabbir Ahmed’s lyrics are just too annoying to say anything. It is good that HR didn’t take Shreya and satisfied himself with Palak only. No need to give time for it.


Humshakals: It’s not good when you hear that Caller Tune turns out to be the best track of the album. It’s a soundtrack that had all the traits of being awesome but sadly, Himesh Reshammiya didn’t utilize this brilliant opportunity. 


The Final Verdict:  NOT A PROBLEM
