Music Album : Band Baaja Baaraat

Music Director : Salim-Sulaiman

The movie Band Baaja Baaraat is about a wedding planner falling in love with her Colleague. The Music Album of Band Baaja Baaraat, like the movie, is peppy, lively and keeps you interested throughout the film. With the song Ainvayi-Ainvayi being a winner, other songs are also good and different from the usual tracks. The lyrics are unorthodox and that adds to the excitement of the album. The album has a mix of soothing romantic songs and party hip-hop songs and is surely one of the better albums of 2010.

  1.      Ainvayi Ainvayi

Singer : Salim Merchant,Sunidhi Chauhan

Lyrics : Amitabh Bhattacharya

This song is fast and energetic and gets you in the groove. Salim Merchant and Sunidhi Chauhan get you in the mood to dance within no time. The lyrics are cheeky but it adds to the flavor of the song. The beats are perfect and it keeps you engaged throughout. There is a feel of enthusiasm throughout the song. This song is certainly the stand out in the album. Hear it once and you are tempted to hear it again and again!

 2.      Tarkeebein

Singer  : Benny Dayal, Salim Merchant

Lyrics  : Amitabh Bhattacharya

Benny Dayal is surely going from strength to strength. This song comes in the beginning of the movie and sets the tone of the film, because of the vocals as well as the lyrics. The song however fails to go over to the playlists as the song loses its flavor in the interludes but still remains hearable. The lyrics of this song are a class apart.

 3.      Aadha Ishq

Singer  : Shreya Ghosal

Lyrics  : Amitabh Bhattacharya

This song is a romantic and a soothing song. Through Shreya Ghosal’s voice it gets a passionate feeling. It also has proper beats and interludes. The song is another good attempt by the singer who has done a great job.

 4.      Dum Dum

Singers  : Benny Dayal, Himani Kapoor

Lyrics : Amitabh Bhattacharya

The song is an attempted fast jazz song. Benny Dayal and Himani Kapoor are the singers and the song in the movie is a stage performance by the main actors of the film. The singers have done well and the lyrics are modest. Song has some alignment from the songs composed by Salim Sulaiman in the past. This song is outclassed by other songs in the album and fails to create an impact.

 5.      Mitra

Singer  : Amitabh Bhattacharya, Salim Merchant

Lyrics  : Amitabh Bhattacharya

The lyrics of this song are noteworthy and brilliant. They need a special mention. The music is also commendable though a wee bit slowly thrown. The song is about the hardships the actors face due to their fallout. Though it is a good song it falls out as a slow and a little extended track.

 6.      Baari Barsi

Singer  : Harshdeep Kaur, Labh Janjua

Lyrics : Amitabh Bhattacharya

The song goes largely unnoticed in the album which has star studded songs like Ainvayi- Ainvaayi and Aadha Ishq. Though the song has been well sung by the singers it does not create the required interest.

 7.      Band Baaja Baaraat (Theme)

Singer : Salim Merchant, Shraddha Pandit

Lyrics : Amitabh Bhattacharya

This song is fast and gels with the movie. The music Director bears in mind the enthusiasm related to Indian weddings and makes this song which is a good musical composition. Theme of the movie has thus been aptly composed. The beats are perfect and the music charms you and makes you tap along. There is a wave of enthusiasm throughout. It makes to your playlist easily.

Album ★★★★★★★☆☆☆

Verdict : 

Band Baaja Baaraat is a pleasant album. It has refreshing songs of various genres. The album has some chart toppers. Salim-Sulaiman have done really well with this one. Amitabh Bhattacharya has been unconventional and it has actually paid off. It is a fun filled album with an average collection of songs. Enjoy the album and you will sure have some of the songs in your favorite list!
