Music Reviews

'Om Shanti Om' recalls music of an earlier age

Film: "Om Shanti Om"; Music Director: Vishal-Shekhar; Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Shaan, Sonu Nigam, K.K., Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Richa Sharma, Sunidhi Chauhan, Udit Narayan, Sukhwinder, Caralisa, Marianne D'Cruz, Nisha Mascarenhas, Rahul Saxena, Abhijeet; Ratings: *** Farah Khan's second directorial venture is ready to hit the theatres. While the movie is a much-anticipated one, the music is getting mixed reviews from all over. Composed by the contemporary duo Vishal-Shekhar, the soundtrack of "Om Shanti Om" is an amalgamation of songs that belong to an earlier age.

Moitra's magic continues with 'Laaga Chunari Mein Daag'

Film: "Laaga Chunari Mein Daag"; Music Director: Shantanu Moitra; Singers; Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan, Shubha Mudgal, K.K., Sonu Nigam, Babul Supriyo, Swanand Kirkire, Pranab Biswas, Mahalaxmi Iyer, Mita Vashisht, Rekha Bharadwaj; Rating: *** Shantanu Moitra returns after his classic "Parineeta" to compose a soundtrack for the multi-starrer "Laaga Chunari Mein Daag". While fans of Moitra's genre will be delighted with the album, others wouldn't be disappointed either as he creates a soundtrack that is different, encompasses melody and doesn't miss out on the Indian classical touch.

Songs of 'Bhool Bhulaiya' an absolute delight

Film: "Bhool Bhulaiya"; Music Director: Pritam; Singers: K.K., Neeraj Sridhar, Tulsi Kumar, Shaan, M.G. Sreekumar, DJ Amyth, DJ Kiran, DJ G & Earl; Rating: *** The music album of "Bhool Bhulaiya" is an absolute listener's delight. Composed by Pritam and with lyrics by Sameer, the soundtrack is a pleasure to listen to and would definitely rope in huge profits.

'Aggar' tracks are decent and enjoyable

Film: "Aggar"; Music Director: Mithoon; Singers: Qurram, Rup, Roop Kumar Rathod, Tulsi Kumar, Sharmishtha, Mithoon, Hamza, Shilpa Rao, Kshitij; Rating: **1/2 Composer Mithoon provides variety in the album, but one thing is common to all tracks - romance and passion.

Reshammiya's 'Nanhe Jaisalmer' disappoints

Film: Nanhe Jaisalmer; Music Director: Himesh Reshammia; Singers: Himesh Reshammiya, Sonu Nigam, Sunidhi Chauhan, Vineet, Jayesh Gandhi; Ratings: *1/2 Though the pairing of music director Himesh Reshammiya with lyricist Sameer has produced major hits in the past, they fail to make heads turn with "Nanhe Jaisalmer". The soundtrack comprises a couple of tracks with some folk in it and also has classic Reshammiya numbers that hardly create a stir.

Instruments talk louder than vocals in 'Go'

Film: "Go"; Music Director: Sneha Kanwalkar, Prasanna Shekhar, Amar Mohile; Singers: Kunal Ganjawala, Sunidhi Chauhan, Suzanne, Sneha Kanwalkar, Meenal Jain, Vinod Rathod, Priyadarshini, Farhad Bhiwandiwala; Ratings: ** Ram Gopal Varma's (RGV) music doesn't always get the cash registers ringing,yet his thriller background scores always make a mark. With his next film "Go", this, too, fails to happen. Let's see how.

Adnan Sami fails to impress in 'Dhamaal'

Album: "Dhamaal"; Music Director: Adnan Sami; Singers: Adnan Sami, Shaan, Amit Kumar, Asha Bhosle, Naveen, Raghav Sachar, DJ Sandeep Shirodkar; Ratings: *1/2. All-boys seems to be the theme for Indra Kumar's "Dhamaal" - not only is the star cast packed with male stars like Arshad Warsi, Sanjay Dutt, Riteish Deshmukh, Ashish Chaudhary and Sohail Khan but the singers list too is crowded with men like Adnan Sami, Shaan and Amit Kumar.

Varma's 'Darling' has some hummable numbers

Film: "Darling"; Music Directors: Pritam, Himesh Reshammiya and Prasana Shekhar; Singers: Shaan, Himesh Reshammiya, Sunidhi Chauhan, Tulsi Kumar, Priyadarshini, Adnan Sami; Ratings: **1/2 It seems director Ram Gopal Varma is keen to be different with his film music; hence he has roped in Pritam as the main composer for the soundtrack of his film "Darling".

'Jahan Jaaeyega Hamen Paaeyega' music not worth it

Film: "Jahan Jaaeyega Hamen Paaeyega"; Music Director: Aadesh Srivastav; Singers: Aadesh Srivastav, Udit Narayan, Sneha Pant, Sunidhi Chauhan; Ratings: * A terribly delayed film, "Jahan Jaaeyega Hamen Paaeyega" (JJHP) stars Govinda, Divya Dwivedi and Shivani Shivananda. As far as the music is concerned, JJHP is of the kind that would fade away without anyone realising the same. It has little chance of making it to any music charts.


'Chak De India' songs not catchy enough

Film: "Chak de India"; Music Director: Salim-Suleiman; Singers: K.K., Sukhwinder Singh, Anushka Manchandani, Hema Sardesai, Marianne D'cruz, Salim Merchant, Shah Rukh Khan and Krishna Medieval Punditz; Rating: ** "Chak De India", a much-awaited Yash Raj Film starring Shah Rukh Khan, is set to hit the screens but the music isn't really making waves. Composer duo Salim-Suleiman have not done anything extraordinary or exciting.

'Marigold' music less than average

Film: "Marigold"; Music Director: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy; Singers: Shaan, Vikas Bhalla, Alka Yagnik, Truth Hurts, Ali Larter, Nihira Joshi, Sneha Pant, Nikita Nigam; Ratings: *1/2 The music of the Salman Khan-starring Hollywood flick "Marigold" is quite a disappointment, especially when you know it has been composed by none other than Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, the ruling kings of Bollywood music.

'Heyy Babyy' - a feel-good album with moderate life span

Film: "Heyy Babyy"; Music Director: Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy; Singers: Shankar Mahadevan, Loy, Sonu Nigam, Shreya Ghoshal, Shaan, Neeraj Sridhar, Rehan Khan, Salim Shehzada, Sajid Khan, Pervez Quadir, Raman, Girl Band; Ratings: *** Sajid Khan's debut film's promos are out and going by the looks, the movie seems to be fun, youthful and full of energy like that of his sister Farha Khan's directorial debut "Main Hoon Na". And the music is not far behind as Khan has roped in Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy for the soundtrack.

Sunidhi is the saving grace in 'Cash'

Film: "Cash"; Music Director: Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani; Singers: Sunidhi Chauhan, Vishal Dadlani, Shekhar Ravjiani, Anushka Manchandani; Ratings: *** "Cash" is all about loads of bikes, action, stunts and music. Directed by Anubhav Sinha, the soundtrack of the movie has been composed by Vishal and Shekhar who haven't really put their skills to good use. Only two numbers make their mark.
