And then, I found this album called Na Ghar Ke Na Ghaat Ke, composed by Lalit Pandit. So here is a music review.
The album starts with the title song, Na Ghar ke Na Ghaat ke munna, sung by Remo Fernandes, who is singing rarely for Bollywood movies for quite some time. The song gets me quite some hope as it starts, but it gets kind of confused in between as the antara goes banal and Remo alone struggles to make the song what it started as, not really succeeding to get the same effect as comes in the first minute of the song. Still the song is a good try by Lalit and makes me feel that if he tries to do new things like this and does that with persistence, the results can be good. Try and listen to the song 2-3 times and then decide if you liked it. It may be a bit loud, but it’s not bad.
Agar hum tumko chheden to is something that is quite trying to be Chor Bazari but while the music of the song succeeds, the lyrics go absolute crass in some places. Still, the song made on simple beats is sung well by Neeraj and Shreya sounds sweet. So the overall result is that once u adapt yourself to the lyrics, you kind of like it. Kind of not bad. Just wish there were better lyrics than ‘kahin babuji na aa jaayen.’
Sajan Bawre, sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, is the big black patch like the one on a pirate’s eye, in an otherwise good, or at least trying to be good album. It’s an “item” song but I wonder if there is anything in the song for which Sunidhi’s voice is needed, except a few sounds here and there, which seem like trying to add at least something to the song. Resulting in nothing. The lyrics are crass.
Overall, Na Ghar Ke Na Ghaat ke is an album that goes beyond expectations, as there were zero expectations. But then, Lalit Pandit, trying to create some good music, falls for cheap music too, and the result is almost the name of the movie. Still, try the title song and agar hum tumko chheden, you may get something for until the next album’s release.
Note to lyricist: Adding Amreeka to any crap song doesn’t make you Piyush Mishra.
