Mad About Dance is an upcoming Bollywood dance film. Saahil Prem, has directed, written and acted in it. 😛 The film has been produced by Paanch Rupaiya Barah Ana Productions. The film stars Amrit Maghera opposite the director, and others like international hip-hop star Salah Benlemqawanssa. The film, being a dance film should be strong in the music department. T-Series is the music company, and again they have produced a multi-composer album. Seeing the music composer’s names, I doubted that. The music is composed by Vidyadhar Bhave, Sangeet-Siddharth, Saahil Prem 😛 and Dr. Zeus. So let’s see whether these mediocre composers managed to create a strong soundtrack for the film.
1. Ishq Da Bukhar:- Singers ~ Krishna Beura & Amrit Maghera, Music by ~ Vidyadhar Bhave, Lyrics by ~ Vidyadhar Bhave
The first song gives an impressive kick start to the soundtrack. Mild piano notes open up and make way for Krishna Beura’s soulful rendition of the Punjabi lyrics written by Vidyadhar Bhave. Vidyadhar has managed to create an engaging tune as well. The arrangements are mostly techno arrangements. The piano and dhol interlude is worth a hear. Amrit Maghera also makes an entry with some English lyrics, and she sings those very well. The songs makes for a great listen, a good romantic song with the perfect beats to make it go with the theme of the movie, dance. Vidyadhar has shown his versatility in the song, mixing in the same tune with the Punjabi as well as English lyrics. Both singers manage to impress as well. Their voices work a lot for this song. Though the song won’t be noticed much, it definitely is great! Perfect start for the album! #5StarHotelSong!
2. Party Is Going Mad:- Singers ~ Sangeet-Siddharth, Divya Kumar & Vidydhar Bhavr, Music by ~ Sangeet-Siddharth, Lyrics by ~ Sangeet-Siddharth
When I read the name of the song, I immediately understood it would be a club/party number, and then when I read the singer’s name, I wasn’t sure whether Divya Kumar would be able to convey the required energy for a club song. Sangeet-Siddharth have managed to create a composition which is engaging in most parts, but they have highly overused the techno beats. I understand it’s a club song, but that doesn’t mean you should put loud and earsplitting techno sounds wherever you want to. My doubt about Divya Kumar was proved wrong, and he actually has given just the right amount of energy needed for this song. His voice suits the composition very well. The other singers support him well, but he is the star here. Lyrics are not anything to boast about. After all, it is a club song. Sangeet-Siddharth haven’t placed any so-called interesting elements in the song. Well, they have tried to, but it doesn’t impress. Nothing new here, but worth a listen for Divya Kumar.
3. Kahan Hai Khuda:- Singers ~ Subhash Pradhan (Original Version), Vidyadhar Bhave (Dubstep Version), Music by ~ Saahil Prem, Lyrics by ~ Manoj Yadav
Apart from being the director and actor in the movie, I guess Saahil Prem wanted to comopose for the film as well. The song starts with guitar strums. Then Subhash Pradhan enters with a voice that reminds you of Mohd. Irfan for a while, but then he starts singing in a different voice. The song is a soulful song, but has nothing new to offer. It is a sad composition, composed decently by Saahil, and the arrangements are mainly made of both acoustic and rock guitars. The composition is pretty engaging in parts, but boring at others. The star of the song is undoubtedly Subhash Pradhan, because of his touching rendition. Saahil’s composition doesn’t impress a lot, but is passable. Again, the song won’t be noticed much, but that shouldn’t stop you from hearing it! The dubstep version starts with a slightly haunting techno tune. Vidyadhar Bhave enters with a rough and deep voice. This song relies mainly on the dubstep, I guess mostly to satisfy the need of the film to make an efficient dance track. But there is not that efficient about the dubstep here. The song has been made from sad, to sad as well as haunting in this version. First version was fairly engaging, while the second version didn’t impress as much.
4. Punjabi Mundeya:- Singers ~ Ravindra Upadhyay & Lil’ Shorty, Music by ~ Dr. Zeus, Lyrics by ~ Vijay Singh Shekhawat
Lil’ Shorty starts with some weird rap, which sounds very ridiculous. I suggest you guys edit that part out and then listen to the song, because then you will unnecessarily listen to one minute and fifteen seconds of stupid rap which is not required. The second singer, Ravindra Upadhyay, is a great replacement for Sukhwinder Singh, and just like Palak is taken when makers don’t have enough money to rope in Shreya, same applies here. The inky thing is that Ravindra sounds exactly like Sukhwinder, whereas Palak barely sounds like Shreya. 😛 Since over one minute is wasted in the ridiculous ‘rap’ by Lil’ Shorty, Ravindra gets just over two minutes to do his part. Dr. Zeus has come up with a Punjabi club song, with good beats but an unimpressive and uninteresting tune. Lyrics are again below average. In fact, the song doesn’t rely that much on lyrics. The song is the kind that you should listen once, and then only listen again if you liked it, but if you didn’t, then no need to listen to it once more. A below average tune supported by groovy beats, and good vocals by Ravindra, but fails to impress! Same old thing!
Mad About Dance is just another typical average T-Series album, with four composers composing one song each. Out of four, only Vidyadhar Bhave managed to impress with his song, while others didn’t offer anything fresh. In a dance film, four songs, and out of that, only one impressing, is not expected at all! Some more songs were expected, which might have helped the film a lot more than only four songs. The album is a volatile album, the kind that will fly away in no time, and you will forget about it very quickly. Another bad multi-composer album from T-Series. Had the makers gone MAD while finalizing just four songs?? 😀
