Teri Meri Kahaani Music Review

Teri Meri Kahaani Music
Music Direction : Sajid-Wajid

Mukhtasar - Wajid. Cool urbane love song. Catchy and addictive beats. The word 'mukhtasar' will linger, so the song won't go out of your head. Good and haunting singing by Wajid. Has a club feel to it. Good one!
Remix by DJ Suketu is added which is just OK.
Allah Jaane - Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. Traditional sufi song. Good singing by RFAK. Basic arrangements. Composers have succeeded in bringing the sufi element to the song. Lyrics are to be mentioned. Catchy tune and great repeat quality. Good one!
Jabse Mere Dil Ko Uff - Sonu Nigam & Sunidhi Chauhan. The 1960 track. Sonu and Sunidhi try to bring that old feel to the singing. Arrangements are good. Nothing great in the track. One time hear.
Humse Pyar Kar Le Tu - Wajid, Mika, Shabir Bro & Shreya Ghoshal. Traditional Qawaali dance track. 'Humse pyaar karle tu' loop is addictive. Can't help shaking your head. Same expected arrangements. Singers have done a good job.Good one! Remix is added.
That's All I Really Wanna Do - Shaan & Shreya Ghoshal. Cool love song. Situational track. Simplicity is what I liked in this track. Light hearted melody with a great deal of orchestration. Rendition of Shaan and Shreya is simple. Tune is  lovely. Good one!

Verdict : After prolonged flops, Sjid-Wajid delivers a surprise in Teri Meri Kahaani. While 'Mukhtasar' will work with youth in no time, the other songs namely 'Allah jaane' and 'Humse pyaar karle' has good hit potential if given essential promotions. Honest effort but nothing great.

Ferrari Ki Sawaari Music Review

Ferrari Ki Sawaari Music
Music Direction : Pritam Chakraborty

Maara Re - Sonu Nigam, Rana Mazumder, Aishwarya Nigam & Ashish. The cricket song. Foot tapping and addictive with quite funny lyrics. Turns melodious in between. Good One!
Rusy’s Theme - Instrumental. Is it really Pritam?? The theme is sweet and harmonic. With the perfect use of keyboards, drums and Cello, it has a semi- European feel which makes it a good night time hearing. Loved it!
Mala Jau De - Urmila Dhangar. Catchy beats make a start. Item number. Urmila's vocals are grt and have that item girl feel to it. Marathi lyrics and good orchestration. Not much repeat quality, but still manages to stand out. May work once video is out.
Ae Mere Mann - Shyamantan Das. Well, keyboards to begin with and a slow moving nostalgic track. Arrangements are to be watched out. Das has definitely a different sound. Chorus is beautiful with a church song feel. Winner!
Good Night - Priyani Vani. Lullaby. Mom singing to the baby. Priyani Vani, you have a really really tender sound. Or is it the lyrics?? The song moves soulfully all through your brain that I'm half asleep. Hear it thrice and you are already sleeping tight! Keyboard, guitar, violin, and the occasional sweet bell. Excellent track. Grand winner!!
Chal Ghoome (Ferrari Ki Sawaari) - Shaan, Boman Irani & Aayush. Theme song. Catchy tune and funny lyrics. Shaan is flawless in the rendition. I don't know how many layers of sound this track has got. Good arrangements. Good one!

Verdict : A very good soundtrack which is strangely un-Pritam-ish! A grt deal of good songs with no unnecessary remixes. Typical Vidhu Vinod Chopra light hearted album. Loved it!

Rowdy Rathore Music Review

Rowdy Rathore Music
Music Direction : Sajid-Wajid

This review is late too. But better miss this than late.

01. Dhadang Dhang Dhang - Wajid, Shreya Ghoshal
02. Chinta Ta Ta Chita Chita - Mika Singh, Wajid
03. Aa Re Pritam Pyaare - Mamta Sharma, Sarosh Sami
04. Chamak Challo Chel Chabeli - Kumar Sanu, Shreya Ghoshal
05. Tera Ishq Bada Teekha - Javed Ali, Shreya Ghoshal
06. Chandaniya (Lori Lori) - Shreya Ghoshal
07. Rowdy Mix - Akshay Kumar, Sarosh Sami

After a disastrous Housefull 2 nd a poor Tezz, Sajid-Wajid are improving, still getting nowhere. Try it if u want some 80's 90's masala music.


Ishaqzaade Music Review

Ishaqzaade Music
Music Direction : Amit Trivedi

I know its late, but wasn't able to write reviews due to lack of time. But didn't miss this wonderful soundtrack from Amit Trivedi. Its late, so I'm just giving the track list and my rating.

Ishaqzaade - Javed Ali & Shreya Ghoshal

Chokra Jawaan - Vishal Dadlani & Sunidhi Chauhan

Pareshaan - Shalmali Kholgade

Jhalla Wallah - Shreya Ghoshal

Aafaton Ke Parinde - Suraj Jagan & Divya Kumar

Pareshaan (Remix) - Shalmali Kholgade (Remixed By Abhijit )

Jhalla Wallah (Remix) - Shreya Ghoshal (Remixed By Abhijit)

Verdict : A very good soundtrack from Amit Trivedi after a low-key Ekk Mein Aur Ekk Tu. Engaging! Loved it!
