Jhootha Kahin Ka is a Bollywood comedy film starring Rishi Kapoor, Jimmy Sheirgill, Omkar Kapoor and Sunny Singh in lead roles. The film is directed by Smeep Kang and produced by Anuj Sharma and Deepak Mukut. The film has music by Amjad-Nadeem and their new partner Aamir, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Siddhant Madhav, Sanjeev-Ajay, Rahul Jain and Kashi Richard. I’ve known about Amjad-Nadeem for years, and they have some decent songs, so expecting something worthwhile from them. Not expecting from Honey Singh, and Siddhant Madhav, Rahul Jain, and Kashi Richard, I’ve read their names in passing in some Zee Music albums which I haven’t reviewed or heard. So, let’s see what this album has to offer.

Amjad-Nadeem-Aamir’s Saturday Night happens to be Neeraj Shridhar’s second one with that name, the former being from ‘Bangistan’, composed by Ram Sampath. While in that song, Sampath fused club beats with Celtic sounds, here we get an annoying mix of overused club beats with the intermittent tumbi sounds. Neeraj Shridhar isn’t bad at singing such songs, so the vocals don’t annoy as much as they would’ve with another singer. The rap by Enbee is utterly avoidable, and the female singer Jyotica Tangri barely gets anything to sing. Do we have to talk about the lyrics by Amjad-Nadeem?
Funk Love by Yo Yo Honey Singh has the quintessential Honey Singh beats that have been missing from Bollywood for some time, and Lil Golu’s lyrics, something else that has been missing in Bollywood for quite some time. And after listening to the song, you know why. Though the beats start off quite intriguingly (though there’s nothing new, but that’s just Yo Yo’s forte, I guess) the vocals and lyrics make you cringe all throughout the song. Especially the title lyrics. Which do not sound like ‘Funk Love’ at all.
Out of Sanjeev-Ajay’s two songs, they collaborate with Siddhant Madhav for Munde Da Character, which starts with interesting Punjabi folk sounds created digitally, as can be made out from the sound of it. Brijesh Shandilya handles the vocals of the mukhda and the hookline well, and is accompanied by a horde of other vocalists (Siddhant Madhav, Rani Indrani Sharma, Nazim Ali, Deepak Yadav and Makrand Patankar) who mostly come into action in the antaras. The female vocalist, Rani Sharma, sounds great particularly, in the second antara. The composition is catchy, and thanks to the fresh Punjabi arrangements, it is a song I don’t mind listening to in its entirety, unlike the previous two songs on the album. Sanjeev Chaturvedi’s lyrics are also suitable and how lyrics for a normal Bollywood song should be.
Sanjeev-Ajay’s other song, Jhootha Kahin Ka, is composed in collaboration with Rahul Jain. Again, it starts with a heard-before but catchy Punjabi tumbi piece, which later is joined by harmonium, dholaks and Navraj Hans’ strong voice. The song carries a sound close to Gurdas Mann’s pop numbers, and thanks to Navraj Hans’ vocals, it sounds better. Rahul Jain and Ankit Saainraj accompany him with the vocals, but it is mostly a Navraj show all the way. The hookline is quite weak, and the lyrics (Sanjeev Chaturvedi) too are functional and nothing more.
The last song on the album, Jugni, is another song with club beats, and starts like a Yo Yo Honey Singh song, but it is actually composed by Kashi Richard. Yes, the beats are catchy here, and Enbee doesn’t irritate as much as he did in ‘Saturday Night’. The beats engage you throughout the length of the song, and the four singers, (Enbee, Kapil Thapa, Rohit Sharma and Chintan Bakiwala) though you can’t really differentiate one from the other, seem to have done a good job because the end result sounds good. The hookline has been composed in that typical designed-to-be-annoyingly-catchy way, but the beats and the ‘kadak maamla‘ refrain help the song get my green signal.

Not an album I’ll revisit again for any reason, because none of the songs stuck with me, but I would remember it for the way it is so typical with its beats, in both its club songs and Punjabi songs.

Housefull 3 is an upcoming Bollywood comedy film, starring Akshay Kumar, Riteish Deshmukh, Abhishek Bachchan, Jacqueline Fernandez, Lisa Haydon and Nargis Fakhri in lead roles, with Boman Irani and Jackie Shroff in supporting roles. The film is directed by Farhad-Sajid, and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. The movie is the third part in the ‘Housefull’ franchise, and we can see where the franchise is heading. The quality of the second part was nohere near that of the first; I doubt that the third one will even match the second, going by the trailer. As for the music, the first part had an awesome and enjoyable album by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy. The second had quite a decent album by Sajid-Wajid, which didn’t match up to the first, but was good anyway. The third part however, has a multicomposer album, and I’ve seen where multi-composer albums go with comedy films (Ahem, ‘Welcome Back’, we’re hinting at you…!) The list of composers isn’t so impressive, either, and each team gets only one song, so, yeah…! Sharib-Toshi, fresh from the success (*cough cough*) of their three songs from the ‘1920 London’ album, are the first music directors in the album. Not expecting something great from them, but I will be happy if they manage to give something good, because here they can’t give typical Bhatt-ish stuff, can they? 😂 The next is Sohail Sen. I wonder from where he ended up doing this album, but nevertheless, expectations are high from him as he seems to be the composer I like the most in this album! After ‘Gunday’, a great song is expected. The third composers on the list are Mika Singh and his all-time partner Millind Gaba. (I think it’s the other way around.. Mika is the partner of Millind… I guess…?) I am not expecting anything from them, going by their ridiculous title song in ‘Welcome Back’. And the last composer is Tanishk Bagchi. Now, he has been impressing right from ‘Tanu Weds Manu Returns’ to ‘Kapoor & Sons’ to the recent ‘Sarbjit’. He had got a rom-com action film ‘Direct Ishq’ in between, where he didn’t impress much, so let’s see how he does in this rom-com! Read on to find out how the songs of the much awaited ‘Housefull 3’ are!

1. Pyar Ki
Singers ~ Nakash Aziz, Anmol Malik, Divya Kumar & Sharib-Toshi, Rap by ~ Earl Edgar, Music by ~ Sharib-Toshi, Lyrics by ~ Manoj Yadav, Farhad-Sajid & Danish Sabri

Sharib-Toshi, back after their middling songs in ‘1920 London’ (I thought they wouldn’t dare to make music after that!) get the very first song in the album. Sharib-Toshi have had a decent track record with upbeat songs, the best being ‘Emotional Fool’ (Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania) for me. Here, they give an upbeat track with literally no meaning, except a trying-to-be-catchy composition, which works to some extent. The makers play it safe by employing four lyricists on this track, so we can’t catch the culprit who is feeding nonsense to our ears! Well, good escape!! Sharib-Toshi’s composition does appeal on and off, but when it does, something has to spoil it — either the lyrics or the vocals. Frankly, the composition is catchy. A hookline that is perfect for Bollywood and specifically, such movies in Bollywood, does grab your attention, while the other parts of the song have been composed pretty good too. Divya’s Qawwali portion is a good addition. In spite of the decent composition, the lyrics are atrocious. Manoj, Farhad, Sajid and Danish team up to give lyrics that try to be smart with a very stupid double meaning hookline, that doesn’t even shock you in the least. In the rap portion, I’m guessing written by Danish, as I can even hear him singing (though not credited!), it is suggested that the relationship of two lovers is just like that of bread and JAM! 😛 In the song, the moon gains weight (“Chaand ko chadh gayi hai charbi”) and the Sun starts talking in Arabic! (“Sooraj bhi laga bakkne Arabi”) These idiotic lines make the song appeal even more, and cater to your laughter. And the rap (I’m mentioning it again..) is a must-hear! 😂😂 On the vocals front, two singers try to save the song, with Nakash using his totally lovable voice, and Divya singing a wonderful Qawwali bit. Anmol, however, is back with her over-stylish vocals singing ‘baby’ like ‘baibaa’ and interfering by inserting random “yeaaahh”s everywhere. Earl’s rap is stupid. Sharib-Toshi’s arrangements are catchy, too. Mostly techno sounds, but they do surprise by adding good Spanish guitars and harmonium in between. A ridiculously funny start to the album! This time Sharib-Toshi do commendably well, but others spoil their work! Oh, yeah.. And salute to the lyricists! They’re surely gonna win awards worldwide for that!


2. Taang Uthake
Singers ~ Mika Singh, Mamta Sharma, Neeti Mohan & Sohail Sen, Backing Vocals by ~ Hrishikesh Chury & Madan Shukla, Music by ~ Sohail Sen, Lyrics by ~ Sameer Sen, Farhad-Sajid, Mamta Sharma & Sanjeev Chaturvedi

Here comes another song with a Topsy-Turvy name. Sohail Sen holds the baton for this one, and fails to do much wonder with it. The composition is the typical Bollywood-Dappankuthu combo, with the typical kuthu rhythm supporting the Bappi Lahiri-styled composition. Sohail tries hard to create another ‘Tune Maari Entriyaan’, but fails miserably. All he manages to create is a decent dance track, which isn’t a sureshot earworm. The composition being very stale and heard-before types, it does not appeal as much as ‘Tune Maari Entriyaan’ either. Sohail has roped in Mika as the lead male singer, singing for three actors, while Mamta and Neeti get their voices superimposed on each other, and thank God Neeti’s voice is clearly audible, while you have to strain your ears to hear Mamta’s, which I’m sure nobody will do. Their parts, trough, have been composed very good, and are actually catchy, especially the second antara. Mika, as always, eats up most of his words, and in a line says something like “Kiltapille pultapille”. He puts in that unusual dog sound while singing, and it seems more dog-like ever since he sang that wonderfully catchy song ‘Tu Mere Agal Bagal Hai’ (Phata Poster Nikhla Hero)! But sadly, the same magic hasn’t been repeated here. Sohail’s arrangements remind you of ‘Tune Maari Entriyaan’, and I guess he has copy-pasted the same rhythm into this song. The dhols, rock guitars, are all the same. He seems to have added the brass band and Shehnaai. And now, coming to the lyricists! Here, there are not two, not three and not even four, but a total of FIVE lyricists! (Plus, Mamta is one of them!) And what can they offer? A song about lifting up your legs and dancing the whole night! What an amazing concept!! I was really awestruck on hearing the lyrics! Too good! If you think I would say all that, you’re so much mistaken. Judge for yourself. Here are some lines — “Jhoomega body ka har part taang uthake”… So are you telling me that our legs have legs, toes have legs, fingers have legs, our eyes have legs, our ears have legs, our stomach has legs, our pancreas has legs, our appendix has legs, our lungs have legs and everything else has legs? Thanks for the wonderful lesson on anatomy! I never knew all this! 😀 Here’s another one — “Main wine Ki bottle, jismein nasha total, all the guys just want a piece of me”… No comments… So, you get the idea! All the lines are just a mishmash of supposedly “fun” words, but none appeal. It’s just a compilation of lines from various dance songs which have come and gone across the years. A catchy composition, but everything else, boring! Lyrics again, deserve a standing ovation, for giving such an unknown fact about human anatomy!


3. Malamaal
Singers ~ Mika Singh, Akira, Miss Pooja & Kuwar Virk, Music by ~ Mika Singh & Millind Gaba, Lyrics by ~ Rani Malik & Farhad-Sajid

Mika has already driven us crazy in ‘Taang Uthake’, and now he’s here to compose a song with Millind Gaba, someone whose songs I’ve never liked. This is a Punjabi wedding song, which has a pretty enjoyable composition, but gets boring after a minute, because if the atrocious vocals and lyrics, again! The starting has a dholak portion that sounds like the start of ‘Balam Pichkari’, but just for a second. After that, a very poorly recorded female sangeet portion, only to be disturbed by Bhangra elements like that phurr phurr sound. Mika sings in an utterly intolerable high pitch, which is sure to puncture your eardrums if you hear it for too long. The female singers don’t help. Miss Pooja’s voice isn’t as harsh as usual, but is more irritating than ever. Akira, who had a song in the recent ‘Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd.’, has only one single line in the song, which I suspect is a line that had to be replaced, because it’s smack in the middle of Miss Pooja’s stanza. And her voice is atrocious! Hear it in ‘Ishq Karle Anytime’ (Santa Banta Pvt. Ltd.) for a more detailed hearing experience. Millind and Mika have horribly and terribly recorded the “song”, if I can call it one. It sounds as if we are hearing it on a radio in some garage. Heck, garages pick up a better signal, than this song’s recording makes it sound like! Irritating Bhangra sounds make up most of the arrangements, with harmonium, techno sounds, and the quintessential tumbi pitching in occasionally. The lyrics are by Rani Malik, a pretty renowned lyricist of the 90s, and she writes lyrics that will put all the lyricists of the album to shame. They’ll wonder how they couldn’t come up with such bad lyrics and they’ll curse themselves for not torturing the listeners as much as she has. Here’s an example — “Mauka hai dastoor bhi hai, Par why you standing far. Take me in your arms raja, Like a true sardar”. It is an insult of Hinglish!! Farhad-Sajid too force their names in the lyricists list; I guess they must’ve made up one or two lines in each song, and hence, they feature as lyricists on every song. ATROCIOUS!!!! RIDICULOUS!!! YUCK!! Stepping on cow dung in the village with bare feet is better than hearing this, because at least we can wash our feet, whereas this song won’t even get washed out of your brain!


4. Fake Ishq
Singers ~ Kailash Kher, Nakash Aziz & Altamash Faridi, Music by ~ Tanishk Bagchi, Lyrics by ~ Arafat Mehmood & Farhad-Sajid

Tanishk is back after a mediocre and a mindblowing song in ‘Sarbjit’. I had praised him for not making his rock Qawwali ‘Allah Hu Allah’ in ‘Sarbjit’, filmy at all. And lo and behold! Here he comes with a filmy rock Qawwali, just against my wishes. Just as I expected, he overdoes the filminess, and ends up spoiling everything. The singers lineup will not make you think so, by trust me, the singing is horrendous! I’ve never seen Kailash Kher singing so badly, in such an unnecessarily high voice, and whenever I have, it sounded pleasant! Nakash’s talent has been purely wasted by making him wail random “Abbaaaa”‘s all throughout the song, which is a real pest to the ears. Altamash is the most modest, only showing up in the hookline — that too, overshadowed by Kailash’s booming voice. Nakash gets to do an atrociously worded AdLib before the Qawwali actually starts, but he sings it decently. Tanishk’s core composition is pretty boring, too, desperately trying to ape Sohail Sen’s ‘Isq Risk’ (Mere Brother Ki Dulhan) which was leagues ahead, and of a totally different level. The composition is ridiculously high-pitched, and a troublesome one too, at that. It is tooooooo dull and toooooo trying-to-be-emotional. Arrangements too, sound odd. I’ve never heard a shehnaai in a Qawwali before, and it doesn’t sound good, I’ve learned today! The rock element hasn’t been overdone, though, and thankfully, most of the arrangements are the usual tabla and harmonium. The lyrics, yet again, do not impress at all!!! “Bada fake tha pehle, yeh ishq ishq, yeh ishq ishq. Abb nek lagey hai, yeh ishq ishq”.  Wow, you must have got a very weak heart, man. “Emotion Ke jo taar hil gaye, kele Ke chhilke jaise chhil Gaye, love mein hum kill Gaye”. This line is trying so hard to be funny.. Hahahaha! Here, I laughed.. Happy? And lines like “Aeroplane Se rail ho Gaye” and “Topper se hum fail ho Gaye”, “Heaven Se hum hell ho Gaye” (pronounced by Kailash as ‘Hail’, so that makes sense, because hail comes from heaven, right?) just degrade the song even more. An insult to the Qawwali genre, a miserable copy of ‘Isq Risk’, an insult to a legend like Kailash, and a waste of his talent. Was expecting better from Tanishk!

You saw how “good” Housefull 3 was. Yes, it was funny. Yes, it is a comedy movie. But comedy movies can have better soundtracks. I think a single composer would’ve done way better on the album! And if they really wanted multiple composers, just to keep on with the trend, I guess, more experienced composers would have done better. In my opinion, Sohail should have done the Qawwali. 😀 Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and Sajid-Wajid’s albums guaranteed a house full opening for the first two films… Not sure about this one, though!! 😂


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

Note: The letter which is underlined is the final rating.

Baaghi is an upcoming Bollywood action / romantic film starring Shraddha Kapoor Tiger Shroff in the lead roles and Badminton player + Telugu actor Sudheer Babu in a negative role, marking his Hindi film debut. The film has been directed by ‘Kambakkht Ishq’ and ‘Heropanti’ fame Sabbir Khan, and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. Tiger’s first movie was also directed by the same person, produced by the same person, but ‘Heropanti’ and ‘Baaghi’ have only one person in common in the music credits, and that is Manj Musik, with one song. This album, too, follows the trend that is being liked by one and all nowadays, which is the multi-composer trend. T-Series’ hot favourite, Amaal Mallik, also composes a song, and so does Ankit Tiwari. However, Meet Bros. get the maximum number of songs (that’s just two 😛 ). Manj, last heard in ‘Singh Is Bliing’, where he composed some great songs, is expected to give great songs again. I expect Amaal to come up with another attractive and unforgettable song, and Ankit, I can’t really say what I expect, because I’m not sure if I even expect anything! Meet Bros though, stunned me with their latest ‘Ki & Ka’, so I’m awaiting some catchy songs from them in this too! 🙂 So read on to see exactly how much my expectations got fulfilled!

1. Sab Tera

Singers ~ Armaan Malik & Shraddha Kapoor, Music by ~ Amaal Mallik, Lyrics by ~ Sanjeev Chaturvedi

First up, we get Amaal’s song. It starts with a soft and soothing piano piece, followed by the same tune played on a synthesizer. Armaan’s clear and mellifluous voice starts off with the actual words of the song, and there itself, it hooks you. Shraddha follows and tries her best to sing beautifully. Though she sounds off-note at some places and too high at others, being an actress, her singing is really commendable, if not technically perfect. Armaan and Shraddha do make a great pair and complement each other very well, making it easy for us to lean back and enjoy the song. Amaal’s composition is very calm and soothing, and he relies on a traditional-sounding Indian-ish tune to take the song forward, and it works really good. Right from the mukhda, to the hookline, to the antara, the song’s tune smells strongly of India. 😀 And Amaal’s songs almost always take forward the Indian culture through their composition and music. In this song, the arrangements are blissful, and again, totally Indian! He has done all he could to make the song sound totally and wholly Indian. Here, we have various percussion sounds that are probably electronic, but sound like a dafli, again giving the Indian feel. Guitars predominantly support the composition and seem to be the main instruments in the song. They’re just too beautiful! Sanjeev’s lyrics are the typical Bollywood romantic lyrics you hear everyday, but thanks to Amaal’s magic with the composition, they’ve been elevated to a totally different level! A feel-good romantic track to start the album off with! Not one of Amaal’s best, but, in this album, it is a #5StarHotelSong!!


2. Let’s Talk About Love
Singers ~ Neha Kakkar, Raftaar & Manj Musik, Music by ~ Manj Musik, Lyrics by ~ Raftaar & Manj Musik

The next song is brought to us by Manj Musik, who had a fun time giving us two great songs in ‘Singh Is Bliing’ last year, an atrocious one in ‘Gabbar Is Back’, and then one good and one bad song in ‘Heropanti’, last to last year. :p So I’m really doubtful about what he has in store now! The song follows the retro template, trying to imitate songs like ‘Jabse Mere Dil Ko Uff’ (Teri Meri Kahaani) and ‘Gustaakh Dil’ (Dil Maange More), but ending up to be nothing like them. It doesn’t even reach their level. The brass instruments — trumpets, trombones, the drums, rock guitars make for a great retro rock-n-roll ambience, but the other aspects of the song totally spoil the great arrangements. Neha Kakkar and Raftaar are not apt singers for this genre at all, and neither do they suit in this song. The composition is decent, and maybe I think it’s only decent, just because the singers haven’t done a good job at presenting it to us. Maybe if they had sung better, I would’ve found the composition better! 😀 Another problem is the programming. The trumpets and guitars are so loud, that the singers’ voices can be heard without understanding head nor tail of what they’re trying to say. (Anyways, the lyrics — Raftaar & Sabbir Khan — might not even be so meaningful for us to care about what they actually ARE! 😛 ) Another thing I’d like to point out is the “GREAT” pronunciation of Raftaar. The word “love” is pronounced just as it’s spelled — instead of saying ‘luvv’! Neha sounds good, but somebody else would definitely be there, who would’ve done even better! The lyrics (at least the ones I was ‘lucky’ enough to decipher) are nothing great (e.g, ‘Tu Spiderman hai, Teri jaal mein Phasee gaya chhokra”), they’re the usual Bollywood lyrics where a boy tries to impress the girl, and the girl remains unimpressed and ignorant until the last ten-twenty seconds of the song, when she suddenly develops a liking for him. Out of the blue. Yup. All I can say is that the song shouldn’t be skipped, but shouldn’t be heard with great expectations either!


3. Cham Cham
Singers ~ Monali Thakur & Meet Bros, Music by ~ Meet Bros, Lyrics by ~ Kumaar, Rap by ~ Meet Bros

You all know I was impressed by Meet Bros’ work in ‘Ki & Ka’, and now they’re back with ‘Baaghi’. They bring their first song, collaborating with Monali Thakur, who had sung for them in ‘Dhol Baaje’ (Ek Paheli Leela). She had done an unbelievable job back then, a year ago, and this time too, she is expected to rock it, what with her receiving the National Award for ‘Moh Moh Ke Dhaage’ (Dum Laga Ke Haisha) and all. 😀 The song starts off with a nadaswaram as if waking everyone up at dawn, from a sound sleep. Monali joins in with the ‘cham cham cham’ accompanied by bells ringing rhythmically. As expected, Monali does an overwhelming job, this time, changing her voice texture to make it a bit harsh and rustic, as opposed to her regular soft and sooth voice texture. Meet Bros only come to rap once in the first interlude, and the rap isn’t actually a typical ‘rap’, but just some English lines in an otherwise totally Hindi song. The composition by Meet Bros is really engaging, a celebratory tune, and extremely refreshing. Both the antaras have a different tune, both equally catchy, innovative and beautiful. It just refreshes your mind for a short period of time, and this is how it tempts you to hear it once more. Arrangements are truly fantastic here in this song, with a blend of South Indian elements in a garba-style rhythm. The temple bells give a pure and sacred feel to the song. Other digital elements enhance the song too. Towards the end, the song breaks into total garba mode, with a whole tempo change too. The lyrics are, again, nothing great, but again, they’re enhanced by beautiful singing, composition, and beautiful arrangements around them. The English lyrics by Meet Bros sound weird though… Still pondering over how exactly raindrops can ‘bounce’!!! A celebratory song that has the power to get you up on your feet and dance! Pretty much PERFECT in all departments, a little less in the lyrics one though! #5StarHotelSong!!


4. Agar Tu Hota
Singer ~ Ankit Tiwari, Music by ~ Ankit Tiwari, Lyrics by ~ Ankit Tiwari  (😜)  Abhendra Kumar Upadhyay 

Ankit Tiwari arrives next to offer his song. His last song, ‘Alfazon Ki Tarah’ (Rocky Handsome), though being very similar to all his other songs, impressed me to a pretty good extent, and so I was open to hear this one too. 😀 And it isn’t really bad either! It starts off with piano and electric guitars in that trademark Pritam style, which he had used in ‘Mere Bina’ (Crook) and ‘Yaariyan’ (Cocktail) and also ‘Kabira’ (Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani), and which Amaal Mallik had also used in ‘Naina’ (Khoobsurat). Though the guitars were very captivating, the mukhda which follows is really captivating too, because it isn’t at all composed like Ankit’s usual composition style. However, the magic spell is apparently broken somewhere between the end of the mukhda and the end of the song, because I found myself yawning (yes, literally!) before the song ended. It was probably the repetitive guitar arrangements that helped me to get so sleepy. This time, Ankit hasn’t composed a sleepy song which is really slow-paced. The song is considerably full-of-life, if compared with his previous songs like ‘Tu Hai Ki Nahi’ (Roy), ‘Dil Darbadar’ (PK), ‘Tu Mere Paas’ (Wazir), ‘Tu Jo Hain’, ‘Saad Shukrana’ (Mr. X) and the list goes on and on..! His voice also sounds natural in this song, surprisingly devoid of that irritating autotuning, or maybe it has been reduced, and I’m glad that he sounds great anyways. 🙂 The lyrics are pretty good, but here it is exactly the opposite of what happened in the other songs, where the lyrics fell short of the composition’s beauty. Here, the lyrics overpower the composition. Abhendra has written really commendable lyrics, which must be heard. On a whole, a decent affair. Lyrics are a must-hear, while arrangements are livelier than the other Ankit songs. What spoils it is that somewhere in the song, listeners are bound to lose interest, which indirectly means that it would’ve been better had the song been shorter! Otherwise, an applause-worthy attempt by Ankit!


5. Girl I Need You
Singers ~ Roach Killa, Arijit Singh, Khushboo Grewal & Meet Bros, Backing Vocals ~ Uddipan Sharma, Music by ~ Meet Bros, Lyrics by ~ Kumaar

Soothing piano notes start off the last song in the album, with amazing vocal supplementary rhythms. All this is just a sneak peek of what’s to come. It cools you down for the time being, but as soon as Arijit kicks in, you can’t help but relax and pay attention to nothing else but the song. You just completely submit to the song. This happens because of two things — first of all, Arijit’s voice has a really magical impact on you and secondly, Meet Bros’ composition is unmatchable! It just lets you drown in the song. The mukhda by Arijit seamlessly makes way for Roach Killa’s hookline, and he totally takes away the show! It’s his part that give you the most goosebumps! His seemingly breathless Hindi rap lines after the hookline reminded me of Shreya Ghoshal’s similar part in ‘Tere Naina’ (Chandni Chowk To China) Khushboo gets some beautiful lines to sing in each antara, and she carries them out with perfection. It is interesting how Arijit doesn’t actually become the leading vocalist in the song, being supported by two others, who give a great competition to him, sometimes even overpowering him! Especially Roach Killa! Meet Bros’ programming on Khushboo’s voice, is awesome, making it double and all, making it sound even more magical. Meet Bros’ composition is one-of-a-kind, a blend of a traditional Indian tune with a totally western complement. Arijit’s parts sound totally Indian, while Roach Killa’s sound totally Western, and Khushboo’s somewhere in the middle. Arijit gets two awesome lines right before the antara ends, which really sound cute! And what’s more, the song has been decorated by amazing arrangements, like flute (Naveen Kumar) and tablas and whatnot. The guitars (Pawan Rasaily) are great and play an important part in making the song what it is, beautifully unique. There is a breathtaking flute solo in the second interlude, which is worth dying for! Meet Bros have graced the composition with great beats, so much so that it almost starts resembling English pop songs in general, but then the oriental instruments like the flute (the way it’s played here) and the tabla, are what keep is from drifting off towards the West, and bring us back to India! Lyrics by Kumaar are beautiful too, or it must be the composition which makes them sound so good. Even the rap parts by Roach Killa are outstanding. Never have I praised Meet Bros so much, not even before their split from Anjjan and not even after. So, all it proves is that this song is the BEST from them out of all of their previous works! Great arrangements, beautiful composition, awesome vocals (and also, not relying on solely Arijit to take forth the song) give the song a unique touch!! The best of Meet Bros, the best of the album, and one of the best songs of the year till now! Also, a trendsetter for Meet Bros and the whole of Bollywood!! Waiting for more like this from Meet Bros! Definitely a #5StarHotelSong!!

Baaghi is definitely a mixed bag album. On one side, Amaal, as always, doesn’t disappoint and gives a soothing romantic melody, while on the other side Manj Musik fails miserably to create a catchy upbeat dance track. Where Ankit gives commendable stuff, stepping out of his comfort zone, Meet Bros score great with both of their songs! So I can’t really call any song bad as such, as each of them has their own strong parts. It is Meet Bros who take away the prize though, with one song that’s really good, and another that’s an example for all the other composers! Meet Bros continue to be on fire….!!! Along with Amaal, they make sure that this album isn’t as much a ‘baaghi’ (rebellious) as its title suggests!! 🙂

Kuch Kuch Locha Hai is an upcoming Bollywood comedy film starring Sunny Leone, Ram Kapoor, Evelyn Sharma and Navdeep Chhabra. The film is directed by Devang Dholakia, and produced by Mukesh Purohit. Straight to the point. The music has been given by multiple composers (already I have a look of contempt on my face. :/  Ikka Singh, Intense, Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Amjad-Nadeem, Dharam-Sandeep, Ali Quli Mirza and somebody who calls himself King. You saw the name of R.D. Burman only because one of his songs has been remade. Out of that list of composers, I’m only expecting something from Arko, and the others, well, nothing. The long list of lyricists (half of which are unknown to me) guarantees bad lyrics. So let’s see what the album of ‘Kuch Kuch Locha Hai’ offers to our ears.

1. Paani Wala Dance
Singers ~ Ikka Singh, Shraddha Pandit & Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Music by ~ Ikka Singh, Arko Pravo Mukherjee & Intense, Lyrics by ~ Ikka Singh & Arko Pravo Mukherjee

Nowadays, we have a trend of multi-composer albums. Well, this song is sure to set the trend of multi-composer SONGS into roll. And by that, I mean composers, who don’t work together (like Vishal-Shekhar, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy) but have come together for a single song in their careers. And these composers are Ikka Singh (remember? The chhora who dances in da club, peeke sharaab?), his partner Intense (the man with the irritating rap portions), and Arko Pravo Mukherjee (he’s good, I won’t complain about him 😛 ) Well, these three come together and make a poolside party song, which you can make out by the lyrics itself. Its similarity to ‘Sunny Sunny’ (Yaariyan) just works in favour of the song, with the same kind of techno beats with which it starts. The tune that all of these have made, does catch your attention, but only occasionally, more particularly, only in the female parts sung wonderfully by Shraddha. The other stuff, like the parts sung by Ikka and his ridiculous rap, are very irritating! Even the hookline, is something that will make you scrumch up your face in disgust. You can’t really make out what Arko has sung in this track, because he seems to have stayed in the shadows. Arrangements are pretty good for a party song, and good recording enhances the listening experience. Of only we had something worthwhile to listen to! :\ Lyrics… Let’s not start about that. They are utterly absurd and ridiculous. Take this for example: “Swimming pool mein nahaake tum aur bhi, namkeen ho gayi ho.” And what about this: “Baby you just like a fish, kisike haath na aaye!” So lyrics get an “F” grade. A song trying to ape ‘Sunny Sunny’ and ends up with a miserable fate. Hear it for Shraddha and the beats. Try to ignore Ikka, if it’s possible! (Which it isn’t, by the way!)

2. Daaru Peeke Dance
Singers ~ Neha Kakkar, Aishwarya Nigam & Ikka Singh, Music by ~ Amjad-Nadeem, Lyrics by ~ Sameer Anjaan

Here comes another dance, this time conceptualized by Amjad-Nadeem, cousins of established duo Sajid-Wajid. This duo has proven their expertise many times with romantic tracks, the latest being ‘Ek Mulakat’ from ‘Sonali Cable’, but here, they have gotten a dance track with some stupid name, so I doubt they will be able to do much good, given their history of upbeat tracks, where they have ruined whatever name they had created every single time they attempted one. So when we hear this song and discover that it’s nothing different from their other item-ish dance numbers, nobody is surprised. Neha Kakkar, the new Mamta Sharma it seems, sings in her usual high-pitched annoying style, and she steals Mamta’s partner for two songs, Aishwarya Nigam too, who tries very badly to imitate Mika, getting nowhere near doing so. Even if he would’ve succeeded to copy Mika, I wouldn’t have appreciated it at all. 😝 The composition has been laid on a foot-tapping dappankuthu rhythm, that is catchy enough to let you survive through the song for the first time. The arrangements make it sound better than it should. The techno beats help a lot to keep the listener engaged while the singers try to finish the song quick, before the listener gets bored with the arrangements and notices them doing stupid stuff. 😂 Ikka’s rap forced into the middle sounds disgusting, only because up till he hasn’t sung anything, the song was tolerable, but as soon as he enters, it becomes highly intolerable. Composition is average, but as I said, beats help you forget that, and the song ends before you can notice what stupidity you just heard. :\ Lyrics — Zero marks! Sameer Anjaan’s already bad quality of writing lyrics is just stooping lower and lower by the day. Amjad-Nadeem’s middling affair, to try to make a good and entertaining dance number. Well, they succeed only in the arrangements.

3. Aao Na
Singers ~ Ankit Tiwari, Shraddha Pandit & Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Original Composition By ~ R.D. Burman, Recreated by ~ Arko Pravo Mukherjee, Original Lyrics by ~ Javed Akhtar, New Lyrics by ~ Arko Pravo Mukherjee

The king of remakes, Arko Pravo Mukherjee, comes back after ‘The Shaukeens’, and here, he gets to remake an awesome old classic song originally composed by R.D. Burman. The song in question is ‘Jaane Do Na’ from ‘Saagar’. The makers of this film have changed the name to ‘Aao Na’, and called Arko to apply his Midas touch to remake the song and turn it into a gold, shining remake with his touch. And the ever-reliable Arko does just that. Electronic matkas start the song off, making it get a very catchy beginning. As the song progresses, we hear some awesome English lines sung by Arko himself, and it doesn’t even feel that we’re hearing a remake of an old song, but it sounds like we’re hearing an original song. The arrangements provide half the enjoyability themselves. Wonderful beats decorate the whole composition, and sitar at places really enhances the song a lot. Backing vocals provided by Arko don’t disappoint either. Both the lead singers carry out the song with ease and with the required sensuality. Ankit’s sleepy and drowsy voice finally comes to great use here, as the composition itself is of that type, and as a result, he sounds awesome! Shraddha does wonders here as well, doing complete justice to Asha Bhosle’s original rendition. Arko has retained the mukhda of the song, and added new antaras, which have a very playful and catchy ring to them, instantly appealing to the ears. The new lyrics by Arko go with the original ones by Javed Akhtar, and end up sounding great in the song. The king of remakes applies his Midas Touch once again, and it results in an enjoyable remake of a classic! #5StarHotelSong!!

4. Na Jaane Kya Hai Tumse Waasta
Singers ~ Jubin Nautiyal & Asees Kaur, Music by ~ Amjad-Nadeem, Lyrics by ~ Sanjeev Chaturvedi

For the next song, Amjad-Nadeem step back into the album, and try their hand at a romantic rock anthem. I was expecting them to at least crack this one easily, but no such luck. The song comes across as very typical, and it also seems as of they’ve taken the notes of ‘Ek Mulakat’, and tossed them around to get another, different tune. Of course, the feel of the song remains the same, and their plan to trick the listeners doesn’t work! Following Ankit Tiwari’s footsteps isn’t gonna take you anywhere, Amjad-Nadeem! :\ 😛 The presence of Jubin Nautiyal as a singer, might also be one of the reasons it sounds so very similar to the former song. Anyways, he sings what he has been told pretty good. His co-singer, Asees Kaur, also sounds good, but doesn’t have much scope to leave any impression on us. Arrangements are typical rock arrangements — rock guitars, drums, which start to sound monotonous after some time, also because of the not-so-appealing tune. However, this is one of those songs that will instantly be liked by a certain section of people. In my opinion, it doesn’t score much though. Lyrics are thankfully, not bad. Sanjeev has written some sit-through-able lyrics. Resemblance to ‘Ek Mulakat’ spoils it all! 😦

5. Kuch Kuch Locha Hai
Singers ~ Divya Kumar, Shraddha Pandit & Sandman, Music by ~ Dharam-Sandeep, Lyrics by ~ Himank Kalal & Mani Soni

When the beginning of a song sounds like ‘Ungli Pe Nachalein’ (Ungli), played in double the regular speed, you know something is wrong with the song. And when singers like Divya Kumar and Shraddha Pandit fail to impress with their renditions, you are 1000% percent sure, that there is something wrong with it. That’s exactly the case with this song. Being a title song, it should’ve been composed with complete thoughtfulness and should’ve gotten a catchy tune. But instead, the tune is some notes that don’t go together at all, that don’t sound good with each other, and end up scaring the audience. Dharam-Sandeep (the duo who had composed the unspeakably bad album of ‘Gang Of Ghosts’ last year) have come up with the worst song that could ever have been used as a title song. The hookline is probably the best thing of the song. Divya sounds really stupid singing such ridiculous lines, and Shraddha is no less. The arrangements are just techno beats that fail to impress. A rap by someone who calls himself Sandman, will surely make you press the ‘NEXT’ option on your players. And the lyrics, written by two people together, sound as if someone opened the dictionary for the first time in their lives, and found out some rhyming words, and used them just because they rhymed, without a care whether it makes sense or not. 😒 Atrocious! Kuch BAHOT Kuch Locha Hai with this track!!

6. Ishq Da Maara
Singer ~ Jubin Nautiyal, Music by ~ Amjad-Nadeem, Lyrics by ~ Amjad-Nadeem

Every other song in this album is by Amjad-Nadeem. Fine. Because here, in their last song, is where they really get things right, finally! The composition is pretty sweet and catchy, with the romantic element not acting as a bother for listeners. This song too, is a rock song with a romantic touch, but in terms of composition, this song is way more reliable, in that it doesn’t make you feel bored as much as the other one did. Also, the composition is good enough to let you listen undisturbedly for the whole duration. Amjad-Nadeem have done wonders with the rock guitars and drums this time, setting up an engaging rhythm which makes you sway. Jubin’s spot-on performance in unforgettable. Though he does seem a bit less interested as he did in his other songs, it works overall. The long duration of the sing doesn’t seem all that long once you start getting attuned to the song and start swaying, as I said. The hookline is one of the sweetest things I’ve heard from Amjad-Nadeem and one of the sweetest things I’ve heard in a rock song, of all. The lyrics by the duo are good too, and go well with the composition. Finally, Amjad-Nadeem get it right, and strike the right chord! Jubin’s rendition is worth listening! #5StarHotelSong!!

7. Yeh Ishq
Singer ~ Ali Quli Mirza, Music by ~ Ali Quli Mirza & King, Lyrics by ~ Ali Quli Mirza

I think it’s better if I don’t review this song. Big Boss 8 contestant Ali Quli Mirza gets a Bollywood song. Fine. But what does he do? Creates some song that hardly connects with you, with a tune that keeps repeating throughout the song. And also, Ali Quli Mirza, for your kind information, Bollywood is over this type of songs since the 90s. Indipop in the 90s was pretty much like this. So, this song fails to impress at all. However, listen to it once for Daniel Weber (Sunny’s husband) and his wonderful guitar solos!

Kuch Kuch Locha Hai is actually an understatement for this album. With only two songs impressing, and the best song being a remake of a Bollywood classic, it is clear that there is some locha, not kuch kuch, but bahot Kuch!! BAHOT KUCH LOCHA HAI!!!! 

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

Note: The letter which is underlined is the final rating.

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
