Super Nani is an upcoming Bollywood comedy drama film, starring Rekha, Sharman Joshi, and Shweta Kumar in lead roles, and Anupam Kher and Randhir Kapoor in supporting roles. The film is directed by Indra Kumar and produced by Indra Kumar and Ashok Thakeria. The message of the film is to all the women that their power lies within themselves. They just need to discover and use it. The film is based on the Gujarati play, ‘Baa Ae Maari Boundary’. The story doesn’t seem very interesting, but Rekha should be enough to attract the audiences. The music of this film is composed by Harshit Saxena who was absent from the music scene after composing one song in ‘Murder 2’ and the whole album for ‘Hate Story’. I was very excited when I saw his name in the credits, and expected a lot from him after those epic songs. One song has also been composed by Sanjeev-Darshan the sons of Shravan Rathod from Nadeem-Shravan. So let’s see whether they live up to expectations and deliver great music for Rekha’s comeback film!


1. Prabhu Mere Ghar Ko
Singer ~ Shreya Ghoshal, Music by ~ Harshit Saxena, Lyrics by ~ Sameer Anjaan

The first song is kicked off by guitar riffs followed by a lovely flute tune. When Shreya Ghoshal kicks in, it is like icing on the cake. The song is somewhat of a prayer song, in which the ‘nani’ is praying for the happiness and prosperity of her househouse and family. Shreya has sung as beautiful as always, and her voice suits the sweet composition. The beats are quite catchy, they could have been laid on a dafli rhythm to make them sound more dynamic and fun. But that’s no problem, because the song still sounds great with the beats used here. The whole song is laid on arrangements of guitar and flute. The interludes have been cut very, very short, because there are four antaras, and the song is five and a half minutes long! Yet, it never feels boring, even for a single second, thanks to the wonderful music, tune and the sweet nightingale voice of Shreya. The lyrics which are by Sameer Anjaan are also quite good, depending on the theme of the song. A beautiful tune composed by Harshit, and sung just as beautifully by Shreya! Go for it! #5StarHotelSong!

 

2. Maheroo Maheroo
Singers ~ Darshan Rathod & Shreya Ghoshal, Music by ~ Sanjeev-Darshan, Lyrics by ~ Sanjeev Chaturvedi

The second duo’s song in the album, is a very traditional and very late 90s-early 2000s type melody. Keeping this in mind, it is surprisingly a very catchy and instantly likeable melody. Sanjeev-Darshan had composed the banal title track for Indra Kumar’s last, ‘Grand Masti’, and after that, I seriously didn’t have many expectations from them for this track. That is why, after seeing Shreya Ghoshal’s name on the credits, I was eager to hear this song and had some more expectations from it. Though the tune is very heard-before, the song just clicks, especially if you liked the romantic songs of the time period which I have specified above. At some parts, the song sounds a lot like Sanjeev-Darshan’s very own ‘Shukriya Shukriya’ from ‘Hamara Dil Aapke Paas Hai’. This similarity wouldn’t be difficult for you to make out either! Shreya, again, gives a flawless performance. Here, her co-singer is at fault. His vocals are so…well…how to describe it now…so rough and dadaji-type! 😛 Someone like Sonu Nigam or Shaan would have been a way better choice for the male part. Anyways, the tune and the composition are so good, that his voice gets covered by them. Also, Shreya complements him very well, and so most of the attention is on Shreya herself. The contemporary-styled humming by her in one of the interludes is worth hearing. The arrangements are mostly dafli beats and rock guitars, an unusual but good-sounding combination. The violin parts are awesome and sound like a great live orchestra (if heard on headphones or earsets). The lyrics by Sanjeev Chaturvedi are typical but suit the composition. An old-fashioned but beautiful composition, enhanced by the vocals of Shreya! #5StarHotelSong!!

 

3. Dhaani Chunariya / Dhaani Chunariya (Rock Version)
Singers ~ Shreya Ghoshal & Harshit Saxena / Harshit Saxena, Music by ~ Harshit Saxena, Lyrics by ~ Sameer Anjaan

The song starts with a voice that I could have never have identified as Harshit Saxena’s had it not been written in the credits. The voice is so weird, that it breaks our link with the song, even before the link gets connected! It is supposed to be a panditji-sounding voice, but doesn’t quite succeed in its motive. Shreya Ghoshal honestly does a great job trying to grab our attention again, but to not much avail. In fact, Harshit himself keeps disturbing each time Shreya is almost done with her lines. Shreya’s lines are kind of relieving, because she’s Shreya. 😁 She always tries her best to attract the listener’s attention, however the composition be. Not that the composition is in any way bad, it just doesn’t fit in amongst the other songs releasing nowadays. It resembles ‘Mera Piya Ghar Aaya’ from ‘Yaraana’ in some places. The composition also fits along with the songs of those times, early 2000s, when so many dance songs of such types were releasing. The arrangements are very catchy, however, with the dhols, flutes and bells, giving a divine feel. If only the whole song were that way, then it would have been way better. The Rock Version has the whole song twisted in a very interesting modern rock manner, but unfortunately spoilt by Harshit’s voice. 😦 This song will surely appeal to a limited section of people, but does not have the capacity to be noticed and become big. A good attempt at making a traditional dance track by Harshit, but he’ll have to work harder next time! 🙂

 

4. Nani Maa
Singer ~ Sonu Nigam, Music by ~ Harshit Saxena, Lyrics by ~ Sameer Anjaan

The flute and guitar are prominent right from the starting of the next song as well, and it instantly appeals to you. The calm and sweet melody by Harshit Saxena has been done great justice by Sonu Nigam. Frankly, it is the first time I’m hearing a song about nani. The lyrics by Sameer are beautiful, touching and extremely emotional. The strings have been put to great use in the song. The snaps in the background help to increase the likability and appeal of the song. Though it might not appeal to you in the first listen itself, but will surely keep on growing with each subsequent listen. The song has two long antaras, but without getting boring for even a moment. Some of the lyrics are pretty obvious, like “meri maa bhi pukaare tujhe kehke maa” 😂. But nevertheless, the song can make you emotional for the six minutes for which it plays. On the other hand, some section of the audience might just dismiss it as heard-before (which it definitely is!) So I can’t help but agree with that aspect as well! A middling melody: Boring for some, but lovely and touching for others! Beautiful, soft arrangements with a wonderful tune and awesome vocals! Do try it!

 

5. Haathi Ghoda Paalki
Singers ~ Harshit Saxena, Rohan Malode, Music by ~ Harshit Saxena, Lyrics by ~ Sameer Anjaan

This is an extremely short track, that the makers seem to have added as an addition to ‘Dhaani Chunariya’, as the arrangements and ambience of the two songs match a lot! It just consists of three lines: “Haathi ghoda paalki”, “Jai Kanhaiyalal Ki”, and “Jai Jai Jai Jal Ho Kanhaiya Ki” which are repeated again and again several times. Listen to it or not, doesn’t make a huge difference!


Super Nani is an album that is still stuck in the era of the nani’s children, not even grandchildren. The two songs which I have selected as the best, even though they are heard-before and not anything fresh, they are at least fine to attempt in today’s age. Another song ‘Nani Maa’ might cater to a certain section to the audience, but might get dismissed as boring by the others. Harshit Saxena, who had impressed greatly with his previous two outings in ‘Murder 2’ and ‘Hate Story’, dissapoints thoroughly with this album. Sanjeev-Darshan provide some relief with their guest composition. Otherwise, this Nani is a hopeless one, who can not survive in today’s age (with respect to music), let alone rescue someone’s life like a superhero! The album is something not recommended to attempt nowadays! 😂

 

Final Rating for This Album:- सा < रे < ग < म <  < ध < नी < सां
