Album Analysis

1. Mumbai Ke Hero

Singers : Jaspreet Jasz,Ram Charan,Roshini Baptist

Music : Chitrantan Bhatt

The ‘catchiest’ song in the entire album ! ‘Mumbai Ke Hero’ has already caught the attention of many ears long back thanks to the promos.The song mainly done as a promotional number also features some punch lines from Ram Charan. Loaded with foot-tapping beats,cool arrangements & perfect rendition by Jaspreet Jasz,one can expect some dance moves from Ram Charan too. The lyrics,especially during the rap portion in the middle is quite a downer. The album’s best track !

2. Pinkie

Singers : Mamta Sharma

Music : Meet Bros Anjjan

Next arrives ‘Pinky’, the hugely hyped Priyanka Chopra item number.After the initial few seconds itself, one can predict the pattern of the song. Mamta Sharma returns to croon yet another item number & the fizz is certainly missing with such an outdated tune. The song has a strong Marathi flavor. The lyrics doesn’t impress either. But still, one could expect this song to be played in all the award shows.

3.Preminchaa

Singers : Mynampati Sreerama Chandra,Shalmali Kholgade

Music : Chitrantan Bhatt

‘Preminchaa’ is a soothing, slow romantic duet which ticks most boxes & comes out as probably the second best track of the album. Shalmali delivers a good rendition & overshadows her male counterpart. A decent track overall.

4.Vechuchanaina

Singers : Shweta Pandit

Music : Meet Bros Anjjan

‘Vechuchanaina’ is a cabaret song set to the retro tunes of Meet Bros Anjjan.The arrangements,instrumentation are quite reminiscent of yesteryear classics of RD Burman. However,the tune doesn’t stick in the listener’s minds. This song is supposed to feature Mahie Gill & vocals by Shwetha Pandit is impressive. One hopes that this number would grow on repeated listening & with picturisation. Very Helenesque !

5.Shakila Centu

Singers : Shreya Ghoshal

Music : Anand Raj Anand

Immediately after listening to this number,one can draw parallels with ‘Chakku Churiya’ track from the original Zanjeer. Both the songs start with similar instrumentation,both the songs are supposed to be the character driven heroine introduction songs. It is just that one is a classic & the other one is not so. ’Shakila Centu’ marks the return of Anand Raj Anand to the music scene & this song is one of the better tracks in the album. The arrangements are catchy & so is the hook line of the song. Shreya Ghoshal completely owns this song.

Picks of the album : Mumbai Ke Hero, Shakila Centu, Preminchaa

Album Verdict : Nowhere near the original. Has 2-3 hummable tracks.

Album Rating : ★★★★★★☆☆☆☆
