1. High Heels Te Nachche – Singer: Jaz Dhami, Aditi Singh Sharma;  Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh (Recreated by Meet Bros);  Lyrics: Kumaar (Rap: Yo Yo Honey Singh) – The superhit Honey Singh track has been recreated having Aditi as an additional voice and Kumaar’s added lines. The song neither sounds elevated nor degraded. It rather has a mixed flavor having the rap as the prominent element like it always has been. Hardly any change in quality, remains just like the original making the point of remaking it pointless. 


2. Ji Huzoori – Singer: Mithoon, Deepali (Backing Vocals: Arun Daga);  Music: Mithoon;  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri – Mithoon after a very long time is heard with his original sound, something which he is known for. The arrangements are vintage Mithoon-ish, not just having digital beats which his songs usually have lately. But the lyrics is something to actually look out for in this song. This is one of the best songs by Sayeed Quadri, disregarding all the weird theories of love in Bollywood songs. It’s worth mentioning. Meri har khushi mein toh teri khushi, mohobbat mein aisa zaroori nahi, tu milna chaahe na mil sakun main, na milna mera koi doori nahi, mohobbat hai yeh, ji huzoori nahiOne of the most sensible songs in recent times. #WelcomeSong


3. Most Wanted Munda / Kabir Most Wanted Munda – Singers: Meet Bros / Meet Bros, Palak Muchhal;  Music: Meet Bros;  Lyrics: Kumaar – This is such a song that after listening, one wonders why did Balki approve it. It’s such an ordinary track from Meet Bros, something of a kind which one must have heard so many times before. It’s hard to find any difference in both the versions because there is none. Ridiculously catchy. 


4. Foolishq – Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Armaan Malik;  Music: Illaiyaraja;  Lyrics: Amitabh Bhattacharya – Absurd lyrics, extremely ordinary composition, and not-much-to-do-about singing. It was not at all expected from Illaiyaraja, and definitely not expected from Amitabh to write such avoidable lyrics. The composition is so flat, unappealing and dull that it leaves not much option but to skip. 


5. Pump It (The Workout Song) – Singers: Yash Narvekar, Meet Bros;  Music: Meet Bros;  Lyrics: Kumaar – Another passable track by Meet Bros who do not at all seem to be in form, delivering tunes which are so unappealing and avoidable. Yash doesn’t help the song with his vocals neither does Kumaar with his lyrics. Avoid


 

This album with unappealing compositions and absurd lyrics has Mithoon – Sayeed Quadri song being the only exception.

Mithoon, the savior!! (Bhaag Johnny – Music Review)

Kunal Khemu is back after a long time with a film produced by T-Series, directed by Shivam Nair. It has music by Yo Yo Honey Singh, Mithoon, Arko and Devi Shri Prasad.

1. Daddy Mummy – Singers: Devi Shri Prasad (DSP), MM Manasi;  Music: Devi Shri Prasad (DSP);  Lyrics: Kumaar –  Kumaar shows his vulgar avatar on the Hindi remake of a Telugu song ‘Aakalesthe Annam pedatha’ from the movie ‘Shankar Dada Zindabad’ The techno tune that constantly plays in the song is catchy and attractive yet quite stodgy. MM Manasi does have an attractive voice but doesn’t have the ability to hold the listeners for long. A repetitive sounding stuff with extremely cheap lyrics.


2. Iss Qadar Pyar Hai – Singer: Ankit Tiwari;  Music: Arko;  Original Music: Sajid-Wajid;  Lyrics: Arko;  Original Lyrics: Faaiz Anwaar – Have you heard the original one? Yes? Then it must be among your favorite songs. And you definitely won’t feel good for your favorite song to be spoiled. Arko is not to be blamed. T-Series is to be blamed here. Ankit Tiwari in not anyway can reach to what Sonu Nigam had done in this song from his very first album Deewana. The change that Arko brought in the first line of antara spoils everything. The rest is handled by Ankit’s vocals. Attempt it to hear how it sounds in 2015.


3. Aankhon Aankhon – Singer: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Lyrics: Yo Yo Honey Singh – Obviously when it’s Honey Singh, it has to be catchy. The point is that it’s not addictive. You are not eager to hear it more after the first attempt. That’s enough to say how good or bad this song is as there are no other measures like melody, instruments, arrangements to judge the goodness of the song. Catchy but neither addictive nor groovy. 


4. Kinna Sona – Singer: Sunil Kamath;  Music: Mithoon;  Lyrics: Amitabh Verma – After a very long time, Mithoon is back in his original form, the way he used to compose in his early days though the composition unfortunately doesn’t turn out so well. Still, considering the level of the album, it is such a relief to finally here a soulful original composition. Sunil Kamath’s vocals are perfectly suiting the mood of the song which has been arranged well enough to be liked. A relief! 


5. Meri Zindagi – Singer: Rahul Vaidya;  Music: Mithoon;  Lyrics: Amitabh Verma – It’s a delight listening to Rahul Vaidya after such a long time in a film soundtrack. His voice has grown mature but his vocals are as smooth as they were during Indian Idol days. After hearing the song, one wishes his more appearances in future. Mithoon’s composition is likable though it does lack that Mithoon-ish addiction, still it’s a decent one. Something to listen for. #WelcomeSong


 Even after delivering ordinary compositions, Mithoon still saves this hopeless album wonderfully!

Do Not Welcome!! (Welcome Back – Music Review)

Anees Bazmee is back after years with Welcome Back, a sequel to his superhit Welcome which is still one of the most loved films in satellite television.

Lyrics: Kumaar;  Music Label – T-Series


1. Tuti Bole Wedding Di – Singers: Meet Bros Anjjan, Shipra Goyal;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan – First coming up among the lot are Meet Bros Anjjan who have been given to create a wedding track with a Punjabi comic flavor in it which they are quite expert in making. It is good to hear a non-Kanika Kapoor singer in their dance track aptly justified by Shipra who has sung along with the trio who has primarily used lot of loud Horns to justify it as the wedding track. It is definitely catchy but with an extremely low shelf life. Won’t last on dance floors more than a month.


2. 20-20 – Singers: Anu Malik, Shadaab, Mamta Sharma;  Music: Anu Malik – I don’t need to write much about it. Just listen yourself and get to know the height of cheapness in the lyrics. Kumaar has this attitude of going extremely classy to the extremity of cheapness when he is told to. So the lyrics goes like this main bubbly hui, tu bunty hua, band kamre mein 20-20 hua. The lyrics when undergoes through the vocals of Mamta Sharma which are supported by the vocals of Anu Malik, you can imagine what immense horribleness it must have created. If you are brave enough to tolerate…


3. Welcome Back – Title Track – Singers: Mika Singh, Geeta Jhala, Music Mg..;  Music: Mika Singh, Music Mg.. – Mika has sung as well as composed the track along with “Music Mg..”. One wonders who the hell is he, a person, a band, or a machine and why it has two dots after Mg? Anyway, the song is and had to be typical Mika track which has no relation with the title track of the first installment. The line Welcome welcome is just forcefully infused in order to call it a title track. It still somehow manages to impress enough to deserve atleast a listen.


4. Meet Me Daily Baby – Singer: Siddhant Madhav, Pawni A Pandey, Hyasinth D’Souza;  Music: Siddhant Madhav – A newcomer has come to the rescue to this sinking soundtrack of the sequel but he too gets mingled in this nuisance that is existing in the album. Pawni surprises with the sudden maturity in her vocals. Siddhant too impresses with his vocals and surprisingly Hyasinth who is basically a song programmer, has given his contribution in the vocals too. Siddhant could have made it a more entertaining and enjoyable track but loses the opportunity. 


5. Time Lagaye Kaiko – Singers: John Abraham, Anmol Malik;  Music: Anu Malik – Actually the tune is not and would not have sounded so bad if the singers and the lyrics were better. John’s autotuned voice is horrible and Anmol’s original voice is no less either. Kumaar’s idea of using the suffix ko in each word to give the song the Mumbaiyaa touch is terrible. I would recommend it to experience something horrible like this in your life.


6. Nas Nas Mein – Singers: Meet Bros Anjjan, Shabab Sabri, Rani Hazarika, Deane Sequeira;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan – Certainly better than some previous songs that we just heard but certainly not of the level of Meet Bros Anjjan. Shabab’s vocals are the only impacting thing in the song along with some strong beats that make the song appear to sound good but in actuality, it has a very weak tune with lyrics that do not make much sense. It can easily be skipped. 


7. Damaa Dam Mast Kalandar (Traditional) – Singers: Mika Singh, Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Music: Mika Singh, Yo Yo Honey Singh – Mika has impressively used the traditional melody and made it his own. He has sung and composed equally well by using some wonderful percussion and along with that, well-utilized techno sounds. This song sounds really good in Mika’s vocals. What else can we expect from Yo Yo Honey Singh than delivering a rap, an extremely boring rap this time, not even a proper one. Mika owns the song, and wonderfully! This is the saving grace for the soundtrack. #WelcomeSong.


8. Welcome Back – Theme – Singer: Abhishek Ray;  Music: Abhishek Ray – The theme track that mainly introduces what actually is in the film, the character sketches and the elements that you would come across. It’s a nice attempt but turns dull very soon. Abhishek neither impresses with his vocals nor with his composition. Boring!


One of the most disappointing soundtracks of this year. You better not welcome it!

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.

Assembly of Composers!! (Dilliwaali Zaalim Girlfriend – Music Review)

It doesn’t happen normally that you get to hear an album consisting of eight songs by eight different composers unless it is a T-Series album. They hired eight composers for this small film, you wonder why, after listening to the album.

Music Label: T-Series


1. Birthday Bash – Singers: Yo Yo Honey Singh, Alfaaz;  Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Lyrics: Alfaaz – After reaching to a certain level of creativity, Honey Singh has again returned to his standard dance numbers that become so monotonous after a certain period of time that you just feel like stopping it. Alfaaz’s lyric writing is even worse than that of Honey Singh. The song is not able to covey anything, not even the zaalimness of the girlfriend properly. Highly monotonous!


2. Tipsy Hogai – Singers: Rajveer Singh, Miss Pooja;  Music: Dr. Zeus;  Lyrics: Zora Randhawa, Mavi Bains –  Assembly has yet another repetitive composer who just tried to renovate the Happy New Year song Lovely. You clearly find instances where you just about to croon the line main lovely ho gayi. No wonder the lyrics also didn’t change much. It just renovated from lovely ho gayi to tipsy ho gayi. I am amazed by the amount of hard work that Dr. Zeus has done in this song. What a renovation, or just a recreation, or whatever it is!


3. Zaalim Dilli – Singers: Jazzy B, Hard Kaur;  Music: Tiger Style;  Lyrics: Bunty Bains – Tiger Style is a Scottish Punjabi music group from the British background. They have numerous albums to their credit and this is supposed to be their Bollywood debut and not an impressive one, I should say. The composition is quite staid and fails to hold the listeners for long. Their style seems to be similar with that of Manj Muzic. Jazzy B and Hard Kaur excels but the composition fails to impress.


4. Tere Liye – Singers: Indeep Bakshi, Soni B;  Music: Indeep Bakshi;  Lyrics: Indeep Bakshi – A very stereotypical romantic track that relies highly on the techno beats and autotuning. Indeep Bakshi although has handled all the three departments but sadly fails to impress in any of them. Soni B has a small portion which she performs decently. Composition is nice though it doesn’t have the ability to retain itself for long as the song is totally a result of machine work.  


5. Janib (Duet) / Janib (Female) – Singers: Arijit Singh, Sunidhi Chauhan / Sunidhi Chauhan;  Music: Jatinder Shah;  Lyrics: Kumaar – This is a big relief. Thanks to Jatinder Shah. His composition is an amazingly sweet melody with very appropriate and fitting lyrics by Kumaar. Arijit as always has ruled over the song with powerful lovable voice along with a pretty appreciable support from Sunidhi. Duet is definitely better as it maintains the balance well between the two though Arijit has got more portions to sing. The female version is also impressive though the impact that the duet version creates is incomparable. Wonderful arrangements and orchestration add up to the soothe. Highly recommended!! #WelcomeSong


6. Meri Marzi, Teri Raza – Singers: K Mohan, Meet Bros Anjjan;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan;  Lyrics: Kumaar –  Fortunate listeners who are reading this review, can skip all those above tracks and listen to songs like Janib and this one. It’s vague to expect a serious song from Meet Bros Anjjan these days but thankfully they have finally attempted a serious one after a long time. K Mohan’s voice never fails to create impact although the composition could have been brighter in terms of the tunes and arrangements. Some might easily find this a boring as the only drawback it has is its long duration.


7. Saddi Dilli – Singer: Milind Gaba;  Music: Milind Gaba;  Lyrics: Milind Gaba – The soundtrack returns to its techno Punjabi flavor with this song describing about Delhi’s quality and speciality of Delhiites, basically giving an extremely bad impression about Delhi to the outsiders. Milind Gaba’s singing, composition both fail miserably and lyrics are not worse than to be called pathetic. Bad attempt.


8. Maa De Dandeya – Singer: Jassi Katyal;  Music: Jassi Katyal;  Lyrics: Kumaar – It’s a satirical song having lyrics with an agenda. Composition doesn’t seem to be having much scope. It must have been appropriate on the screen. Kumaar’s lyrics is the highlight which is good enough to engage the listeners. The rest of the department has nothing exciting to offer.  


Eight composers. Eight songs. Seven failed miserably. Jatinder Shah beautifully saves the album with his melodious creation.

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.

Honey Singh ki Satakli (Singham Returns – Music Review)

Ajay Devgan in and as Singham came like a storm at the box office. Directed by Rohit Shetty, this film collected huge applaud and collections from the audience. Even the elite viewers got entertainment. And now, Singham has returned. Although the trailer looked almost the same as that of its prequel, the action again looks very promising and full of masala. Music seems to be the only problem here. Ajay-Atul who provided soothing music to Singham, are replaced by four composers Jeet Ganguly, Ankit Tiwari, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Meet Bros Anjjan, each having one song. Singham_Returns_Poster

1. Sun Le Zara – Singer: Arijit Singh;  Music: Jeet Gangulli;  Lyrics: Sandeep Nath

Jeet Gangulli is back with his old habit of remaking his own Bengali compositions in Bollywood. This time it’s Mon Maajhi Re. It’s a decent melody but very similar to Jeet’s own previous song Kaafir Andhere from Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi. The similarity gets zoomed in the antara. Arijit has led away the song very well. He has comfortably sung the higher notes and beautifully woven them with lower ones. Jeet has used some fine Guitars to give a complete Rock feel. Sandeep Nath, if translated the lyrics, has done that really well. Typical Jeet Gangully song.

 

2. Singham Returns Theme – Singers: Meet Bros Anjjan, Mika Singh;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan;  Lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed

The original title track by Ajay-Atul has been reinvented by Meet Bros Anjjan where they have kept the mukhda firm and completely changed the antara and all the arrangements. They have glamorized it more but kept it lighter this time. The children chorus and the horns that they have used, have a light mood and signifies that the character “Singham” is not only designed for fights but also has a softer side. They have crafted it really well and whatever was being missed by Ajay-Atul, the composers have fulfilled it all. Applauding effort!

 

3. Kuchh Toh Hua Hai – Singers: Ankit Tiwari, Tulsi Kumar;  Music: Ankit Tiwari;  Lyrics: Sandeep Nath, Abhendra Kumar Upadhyay

It’s a love ballad that is written by two lyricists. I don’t know what is so special in the lyrics that made two lyricists write it. Tulsi Kumar used to appear in T Series films but now it seems that she has also started appearing in albums that have music of T Series. She surprisingly sounds good in this track. It would be better if Palak Muchhal had sung this track  yet you can easily tolerate Tulsi here. Ankit as a singer is damn awesome. After Sun Raha Hai, it is his best singing. Beautiful Santoor starts the song and Sarangi and Violin can be witnessed in between the song. The antara has a heard-before feel, still has a melodious impact on ears. Lovely melody! #WelcomeSong

 

4. Aata Majhi Satakli – Singers: Yo Yo Honey Singh, Mamta Sharma, Nitu Choudhary;  Music: Yo Yo Honey Singh;  Lyrics: Yo Yo Honey Singh

Every second T Series album has a Yo Yo track which has now seriously reached the level of awfulness. Introducing a new singer Nitu Choudhary, the song turns to a height of intolerance. The part which she got, “mala raag yetoy” is the most irritating part of the song. The rhythm is exactly similar to Lungi Dance and the starting of the song resembles Party With Bhootnaath. Mamta Sharma sounds decent in the track (which is a very surprising fact). When you mix some old Honey Singh tracks and try to make it sound pathetic, then something like Aata Majhi Satakli will be preparedIt’s vague for Honey Singh track to advise not to hear, as it always reaches the listeners and most of the time it’s unwilling. 

 

Singham Returns – Three composers. Three songs. And the fourth one is Yo Yo Honey Singh.
