Dabangg 2 Music Review

Dabangg 2 Music
Music Direction : Sajid-Wajid
Lyrics : Sameer, Jalees Sherwani & Sajid

What I expected? : From Sajid-Wajid, some competant stuff since this time Salman is involved hence they can't go haywire like the past six months. Humongous is the word! 

Dagabaaz Re is standard Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shreya Ghoshal duet template, melodious, Qwaali-ish and folky with an engaging tune and even when milking on 'Tere Mast Mast Do nain', makes  up for a good hear!
Pandeyjee Seeti by Wajid, Mamta Sharma & Shreya is quirky and desi dance track with march-band background setup drawing inspirations heavily from various sources and energetic vocals which must work hugely on screen.
Remix is techno.

Fevicol Se, the Kareena track, the expected item number by Mamta Sharma, Wajid, Keerthi and Uvie, absurd, desi, nothing new and emitting a heard before feel, thankfully not having the 'Munni' hangover still not in par.! Worth a hear!
Saanson by Sonu Nigam and Tulsi Kumar is engaging for its retro melody quotient and good singing by the singers though Tulsi snails behind Sonu in quality, nevertheless giving a good hear!
Dabangg Reloaded by Sukhwinder Singh is Ud Ud Dabangg reloaded, flaunting fair quantums of heroism and was more engaging for me than the original. 

Verdict : Dabangg 2 is a safe package of pretty good tracks many of which can work highly on screen due to star power and good choreography even when lacking inborn hit potential . A good hear, not a perfect follow up to Dabangg. Try it!

Must Hears : None

Le Gaya Saddam Music Review

Le Gaya Saddam Music
Music Director : Jaideep Choudhary/Amjad Khan??

What I expected? : Nothing

Dhin Chak by Roop Kumar Rathod is a fairly engaging folk dance song with traditional backdrop of dholak beats which has a heard before feel somehow, still a good hear!
Maula is predominantly sufi, sung to brilliance by the unmistakable Krishna and arranged aptly giving a good hear!

Bill Gates Ki Poti, an easily recognizable desi item number track with horrid lyrics, predictable execution and average singing by Rithu Pathak!
Ye le ye le : Skip!
Le Gaya Saddam : Skip!
Jugni by Krishna is quite a good  hear for its anthem-ish sound and good singing!
Madmast Nigahein by Sidhant Madhav and Anushka Manchanda is just a terrible club track!

Verdict : Two good songs, rest avoidable! Below average.
