Delhi Belly: Music Review (Ram Sampath)

Delhi Belly starts with Bhaag Bhaag DK Bose DK Bose DK Bhaag. And you must by now know how well the song is ‘running.’ LOVE this one. Nothing more to say. Can just praise Amitabh Bhattacharya and Ram Sampath for the masterpiece of its own kind they have created.

If you thought Bhaag Bhaag DK Bose was going to be the only highlight of Delhi Belly, you might be in for a surprise. The second song, Nakkadwaley Disco Udhaarwale Khisko is not on very different lines, though it doesn’t create such punny situations as the earlier one. Still, teri tirchhi nazar ne dil ko kar diya pancher is some really innovative use of Kirti Sagathia’s voice. And so is the song. Innovative, only two steps behind Emosanal Attyachar.

The next number, Saigal Blues, sung by Chetan Shashital, is almost clear by its name. The song is almost a clear cut copy of KL Saigal’s singing, with some twist, that will make the song run longer in this age.

The next song of the album is finally a little less into fun though it’s not all serious. Ram Sampath gets an item-ish Bedardi Raja for his wife, Sona Mahapatra. Okay composition, well sung.

The next number again has a name that would get people interested. Suraj Jagan sings this slightly espionage-y, very rocky Ja Chudail. Suraj almost does a Zehreelay Zehreelay with Chudail, but with the lyrics it has, the song is bound to be funny. I smell Dev.D to some extent, but not exactly in that way.

Ram Sampath comes up to sing the next normal and probably the first and only romantic number of the album, Tere Siva, with Tarannum Malik. The song has a slight ’90s touch though the song is very likable and lovely, something that has been seen in some other Ram Sampath songs too, I feel. Well composed, well sung, with a nice end.

Switty Switty Switty tera pyaar chahida. Sung by Kirti Sagathia. The song might not sound completely new as one can find some similar sounding songs before, in pieces, but the song as Ram and Kirti have made it is a bit different. A completely ‘Delhi’ sounding song, it has Sufi’ish touches (NO, this is NOT a Sufi song), a-very-Punjabi-mixed-Delhi’ish language, and that will (read chipku’ish-ness). The song should work well with this movie, though I’d see no future for this one in a normal movie I guess.

The next song, tere pyaar ne kar diya deewana/ I hate you like I love you is a beautifully confused song. The song starts in a good qawwali mood and shifts to almost a cheerleader song (rock n roll?). But the mixing is well done and in a way that it only makes the song interesting. Kudos to Ram Sampath for the composition and even Amitabh for writing this one.

And then, if the original tracks weren’t enough, there is a ‘punk’ version of Switty, sung by Kirti and Ram Sampath himself, though I liked the original more, as that one had taken me by more surprise.

Overall, Delhi Belly is what you had wanted it to be after that first trailer and that first song. There is still nothing better in the album, nor the album is what you’d say ‘musical,’ but then still for the album I’d say Go get it. Or in other words, bhaag bhaag!

    Ram Sampath is somehow inspired by Rahi Chakraborty who was a contestant in the MTV musical show “rock on”. Ram Sampath was judge along with kailash khar & nikhil chinappa. the music of delhi belly is identical to those performed by the “rock on” first season unlike thos traditional bollywood style. check rock on first season videos on youtube guys.
