Besharam – Lalit Pandit [Yeah, that’s Right] n Ishq-Shree

Besharam title song, for which credit is shared by the singers Ishq-Shree too. The song is anyway fine, though the trailer version looked more promising than the original song. Maybe it’s a victim of a little too much of experiments. Still, a fine background for the movie, if at all this movie keeps anything in background [Not talking of the song].

Besharam is a cocky film, and its item number has to be cocky. But the Hum lut gaye ainwayi aake tere Mohalle is Cocky in a literal sense of the word, as it begins with a sound that is a bit like roosters’ calls, musicalized of course. Anyway, Abhinav Kashyap – Lalit Pandit combo seems to work here, as the song sounds the closest yet to Munni. Not as good as Munni, but not as far as most of such songs have been. Worth a listen. Rest will be clear when it’s on TV.

Bheja Fry 2: Music Review (Ishq Bector and Others)

Bheja Fry 2’s Bheja Fry starts from the album itself. You read the name of the first song and you know how it’s going to be. Well, here is a review.

The first song, Ishq ka Keeda, composed by Ishq Bector, and sung by Ishq bector along with Shreed D. Right from the first line, Kaat gaya ji mujhe kaat gaya, ishq da keeda mujhe kaat gaya, the song is funny and at the same time catchy. Perfect fit.

The second song’s first lines are: We go crazy tu hilaye jo kamar, We go crazy tu milaye jo nazar, ho jaye bheja fry. Who’s that monkey nautanki on the dance floor.. Catchy music again. Need I say more? Ishq Bector’s composition again, with Shree D and Apeksha Dandekar singing.

The next song, O Rahi is sung by none other than Vinay Pathak. A composition of Sneha Khanwalkar, the song is part fun and part philosphical, but nevertheless interesting with Vinay singing in his well known style. Yeah, it shows in his singing too. Do listen.

Always Kabhi Kabhi: Music Review (Pritam, Aashish, Shree D)

The album starts with Aashish Rego and Shree D’s only composition for the album, which happens to be the title track of the album. The song, sung by Bhavin Dhanak, Sanah Moidutty and Apeksha Dandekar, is a usual, funky-colleg-y number that is full of nice beats, but the less than four minutes’ track takes a lovely turn when a Sufiana voice enters the song almost a minute before the end of the song. Still don’t know which of the singers it is, but completely loved the entry, especially the way it happens there. Shame that the voice doesn’t sing much.

From the second song onwards, it gets Pritam. Antenna sounds a lot like some song from Ready, probably the sound matches character dheela hai. Also, the lyrics are written by Amitabh Bhattacharya, but didn’t like the concept of the song itself. Still, the sound of the song IS catchy and can catch up well with some good promotion.

Allah ke Banday: Music Review

Allah ke Banday is an album with various composers coming up together while Chirantan Bhatt seems to be leading with his Maula running already. Here is a review.

The album starts with a Sufi-rock Maula Samjha de Inhe, the song composed by Chirantan Bhatt and sung by Hamza Farooqui and Krishna. A combination that I have never seen yet but the way the song sounds all good and is running successfully, I will not be surprised if I see Hamza and Krishna singing together more in future. A complete like, with the plea made by the two leads showing up in the right attitude and the words sounding perfectly matching in the context of the movie.

The next song, kya hawa kya baadal, is composed by Kailasa, that is Kailash Kher, Naresh and Paresh, and sung by of course, Kailash himself. The song has Kailasa touch quite clear, with added electronica effects, which make the song align more to a theme type than a typical lyric-based song of the band, though the song still is a good deal about the lyrics, which is another good thing about the song. A thumbs up again.

Krantiveer (new): Music Review (Sachin-Jigar)

Sachin-Jigar, the guys who gave some wonderful music in Satish kaushik’s Teree Sang, are back. This time the movie they have got looks even smaller and useless at the same time. But then, movies don’t always decide how the music would be, and so, there are some good things sachin-Jigar have come up with.

The album opens with Khuda mere Khuda, sung by KK and Shreya Ghoshal, which is definitely good, the best of the album, and can be easily found on the TV. Though I don’t guarantee you can watch the video. So my suggestion is, get the music alone, without visuals. A typical KK song. With good music and some little, interesting effects by composers Sachin-Jigar.
