Good boys Bad boys

This is a different sort of a song. All you can do is groove to its beats. The tune is more like one of those played at dance bar. The voice is different, the lyrics too. The voice has a titillating, teasing edge to it. The words are catchy and interesting to hear. The mixing of the background vocals is done well so as to produce the desired effect. The different instruments used and the electronics used produce an unconventional effect to this song. The chorus that accompanies the lines “good boys bad boys” is also so interesting and captivating to hear. The pace of the song continues to be the same throughout. But this does not affect the beauty of the song in any big way.

Mr.Bhatti on Chutti

Now onto the title song. Instead of an instrumental start, this one tries to start off differently with some background vocals [shouts] and then some rapping in English which is more synonymous with remixed versions these days. This one seems more like a DJed song of an original song. The lyrics have words in English, Punjabi and of course, Hindi. This seems to be a song describing Mr.Bhatti for us. The song for sure has some Punjabi flavours to it. Mika’s voice obviously brings that Bhangra edge to the song. He is able to make words interesting. Flexie does a good job rapping and infuses that cool edge to the song. The voices of Mika and Flexie gel with each other and doesn’t at all seem odd to the listener. The pace of the song keeps varying and this keeps the listener engaged with the song. The fusion of the disco music with the Punjabi dhols creates a unique feeling to the song. The fusion of classical tone with the Punjabi tone towards the end of the song is a nice try that clicks along with the humorous way that the song ends.

Balle Balle

This one is by stereo nation so you can expect it to be unconventional. The number starts off as if it is a remix of a retro bollywood song and then the actual song takes off. This appears like a typical disco number. The beats are monotonic and simple. The lyrics sure have lots of Punjabi in it with English words interspersed. The choice of Taz for this song is a wise one for he does total justice to this number for his voice is as sharp as a blade and he has that uncanny knack of making the listeners croon to the song. The retro music playing in the background gives a different feel to the song than an out and out dance number. The rapping in Punjabi in the middle and also the remix retro version popping up again somewhere in the middle add the variety.

Pani Pani

Yet another dance number. This one too has all the flavours of a remix version of an original song. Mona singh’s voice is the highlight of this song and she is able to add that raunchiness to the song. The lyrics is also titillating and teasing. The percussions used give an earthy flavour to the song. You do get bored with the same lines and same tunes getting repeated over and over again. The background vocals add some more raunchy flavour to the song. The infusion of the flute in the middle provides a welcome break and adds some freshness to the song.

Bhatti is gonna get ya

This one too is a dance number and starts off with some English words interspersed with a few words in Hindi thrown in here and there. The Punjabi dhol flavour in the tune and the beats are just unmistakable. The switch between the drums and the Bhangra dhols is interesting to hear to. The electronics in the background is commendable but that alone doesn’t make this number captivating enough. The lyrics are filled mostly with English with it sounding more western than like a bollywood song.

Verdict: I bet you can’t listen to it more than twice although the songs are cool.

Album ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆

This is at most a decent attempt. It might be more interesting to watch these songs on screen but listening to it with your head phones on, the maximum you can do is groove to the beats and then you tend to lose interest as the songs proceed and the tune get repeated. One would have a liked to hear a slow melody number somewhere in between. Having all the songs as fast-paced, dance numbers does limit your audience and doesn’t give a wider reach for the album. Mona’s and Taz’s voices are commendably good. They are able to carry their respective songs solely on their shoulders. The title song is the pick of the lot and seems enjoyable. Credit goes to Flexie and Mika for it.  All the songs have an element of disco and fun in them. The song ‘Balle Balle’ has some refreshing elements to it and makes it so different from the rest but it loses steam half way. The album fails to explore other genres of music and sticks to the fast-pace alone. It is commendable that the music directors have tried out something refreshingly different in some of the songs. Let’s just hope the songs sound cooler in the movie.
