Toh Baat Pakki: Music Review (Pritam)

The cast of Toh Baat Pakki might not give big hopes about the movie but the songs seem worth a try with music composed by Pritam and songs sung by Mika, Sonu, Rahat, Shilpa Rao, Javed Ali.

The album opens with a happy-go-lucky Jis din mera Biyah Hovega by Mika. The song is somewhat like Bhootni ke (Singh is Kinng) without the bad words. The song is full of masti and looks like it will rock the marriage parties like anything if it gets some publicity. Full marks to Mika for the singing.

By the way, check for any similarities of the song with tauba ye matwali chaal, jhuk jaaye phoolon ki daal. Just in case.

The second song of the album is Phir Se, sung by Sonu Nigam, though there is a second version of the song sung by Rahat also. The song is good, kind of old, more like Nikhil-Vinay songs or some ’90s songs with beats of the current time. Still, Sonu Nigam manages to sound good in the song. Likable, but no guarantees.

The next song of the album is Dil Le Jaa. The song is kind of Pritam’s self-repetition as it sounds somewhat like Soniye ve from Kismat Konnection and even somewhat like Gash kha ke ho gaya behal from Khoobsurat. Nothing new in the song to say the least. Though Shilpa Rao manages to sound good in this song too.

I don’t think Pritam is a Himesh Reshammiya to come up to sing a song himself. But here he does it. Karle Mujhse Pyaar is certainly a good song which belongs to the Metro genre. The song is really good but for some reason Pritam sings it himself with Rana Mazumder and Soham. Both of them are good singer but the song has some real high notes and needs some expert singer. Of course I am talking of KK here. No big deal if the song still manages to become a chartbuster but I am missing KK here. He would have given the song an edge. Especially towards the end.

After four songs, Sonu Nigam’s Phir se appears phir se in a remix. As the song starts with Sonu at the top of his lungs, the song after that sounds low, like remix of a ’90s song. Not recommended. Try at your own risk.

Next comes a remix of Mika’s Jis din by DJ Suketu. Original is better if you want to shake a leg.Dil Le Jaa Remix is worse than the original song.

Karle Mujhse Pyaar remix is slightly better than the other remixes in the album. While the original song has good effect of Rock, the remix can be used for dance. Nothing great though.

The next track of the album is a small piece of Aarti, sung by Antara Mitra with almost no background music. For once I thought that the girl will replace Anuradha Paudwal in my collection (though I don’t really have her collection) but then it was a small piece and too slow for a real aarti. So never mind.

The album starts with Phir se, there is the song phir se in between and comes at the end phir se, second version. This time, the song is sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Rahat sings the song in his own style and if you must compare, he beats Sonu at some points in the song. (Listen to the words Ye Dil ko hua kyaaaAAAAA… haye..)

Overall, Toh Baat Pakki is an average album with hardly anything new. Kind of avoidable. Listen to it when the DJ plays it and forget it, but that way you will miss phir se, and probably Karle mujhse pyaar. So try them if you don’t want to miss anything.

Best songs: Jis din, and a potentially good Karle mujhse pyaar, which misses KK.
