Let it be “Oye Lucky Lucky Oye” or “Love,Sex Aur Dhoka” or “Khosla Ka Ghosla”,Dibakar Banerjee has had a wonderful track record with music ! This time he has paired with the happening duo of Vishal-Shekhar who have been riding high on the success of “The Dirty Picture” & “Kahaani” ! Lets see whether they can join hands together and wave the same magic !
|Bharat Mata Ki Jai|
Singers : Nandini Srikar,Arijit Singh,Shekhar Ravjian
Easily the best of the lot ! The song has typical Vishal-Shekhar mood & Shekhar sings it exceedingly well ! More emphasis is given on vocals than instruments ! Pure,breezy music & nothing else !!
2.Bharat Mata Ki Jai…
Singers : Keerti Sagathia,Vishal Dadlani,Arun Ingle,R N Iyer,Mandar Apte,Chintamani Sohoni,Bhupesh,Dibakar Banerjee
This song is already ruling the roost thanks to promos ! A rustic masala number which is completely male dominated ! Emraan Hashmi is expected to unleash in the visuals ! The song has high usage of “Dhol” & is really catchy ! A perfect dance number !
Singers : Raja Hasan,Vishal Dadlani
A protest number ! This song is tailor made for Sukhwinder Singh but Vishal & Raja do a neat job ! The traditional instruments which were used in “Piya Tu” number from Kahaani are also used here ! High energy singing !
Singers : Richa Sharma,Vishal Dadlani,Shekhar Ravjiani
Another item number from the persons who created the baap of item numbers “Shiela Ki Jawani” ! Highly satire filled lyrics ! Richa Sharma does a commendable job ! The song is about the assumptions of a foreigner about our country ! A perfect nach number !
Singers : Shekhar Ravjiani,Raja Hasan
This song is about change ! Shekhar is at his best again ! The composers add a sufi touch to it ! A slow,sufi fusion ! One longs for more of this song as the song is short !
6.Mantra Vishnu Sahasranamam…
Singers : Srivatsa Krishna
To end with,the album has Vishnu Sahasranamam rendered sincerely by Srivasta Krishna ! Has been treated with diligence !
The album consists of 2 remixes ! 1.Khudaaya (Remix) is almost like a fast paced,western song with added tempo & beats ! Gives a different feeling as if this is a different song ! Nice makeover ! 2.Bharat Mata Ki Jai (Remix) – Resembles the original ! Not much differene ! Nothing makes this unique from the original !
