Rohit Shetty’s films – be it the “Golmaal” series or the under-rated “Sunday” or “Zameen” are not known for their music.But with a decently successful soundtrack in “Singham” & one look at the cast of “Bol Bachchan” expectations for this album were natural.Rohit,teaming up with Himesh Reshammiya after “Zameen” & having Ajay-Atul as guest composers,lets see what this album has in store for us….
|Bol Bol Bachchan|
|Chalao Na Naino Se|
|Jab Se Dheki Hai|
|Nach Le Nach Le|
1 . Bol Bol Bachchan…
Singers : Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgn,Himesh Reshammiya, Mamta Sharma, Vineet Singh
Lyrics : Farhad-Sajid
The title track is already making waves thanks to Bachchan Senior . This song starts off with silly,idotic lines uttered by the lead heroes only to be saved by Amitabh. Amitabh truly makes this interesting song enjoyable and listenable with all his effort.The tune is also catchy & is surely the pick of the album.But,lyrics are absurd in most of the places which could have been replaced by something funnier.
2 . Chalao Na Naino Se…
Singers : Himesh Reshammiya,Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics : Shabbir Ahmed
The tried and tested Himesh’s tune is back.This song is folkish in style.Nothing other than the usual stuff in the arrangements.This song looks as if its the Jhankaar version of standard bollywood templates.Shreya Ghoshal & Himesh,though the latter’s voice is nasal as usual do commendable jobs.
3 . Nach Le Nach Le…
Singers : Sukhwinder Singh, Shreya Ghoshal
Lyrics : Swanand Kirkire
Now comes the most dissapointing track of the album.Post the success of “Agneepath” & “Singham”,one is bound to have expectations for this track only to realise later that this track is nothing but the Latino version of their previous hit “Chikni Chameli”.This song is strikingly similar to Chikni Chameli that listeners are made to feel bitter regarding the composer’s versatility.The percussions & vocal patterns all follow suit with Shreya Ghoshal & Sukhwinder doing all their best to polish this xerox version.
4 . Jab Se Dheki Hai….
Singers : Mohit Chauhan
Lyrics : Shabbir Ahmed
The second best song of the album.Mohit Chauhan gives it all in this slow number.But,one gets the feeling that the orchestration was not upto the mark to make this song a sure winner.The loop patterns are highly repetitive too.However,considering the other tracks of the album,this is surely a better one.
The album has remix versions of all the above 4 songs.The remixes offer nothing new.Infact,one may realise that they are nothing but tempo varied versions of the same above stuffs.Nothing has been tried to improvise these songs in remix versions making us to listen the same stock again.Better avoid !
Like all previous Rohit Shetty films,this one offers nothing on the music front.The title track is a sure chartbuster coz of Amitabh’s persona.The album dissapoints in the remaining tracks.Himesh is far from the form which he rediscovered in “Bodyguard” & “Damadamm”.The guest composition by Ajay-Atul makes the matters worse.Lets hope that the visulas enchance the songs.
Picks Of The Album : Bol Bachchan,Jab Se Dheki Hai
Album Verdict : Bol “Better Luck Next Time” !
