Baaghi 2 is a Bollywood action film (read comedy) starring Tiger Shroff, Disha Patani, Manoj Bajpayee, Prateik Babbar, Darshan Kumar, Randeep Hooda and Deepak Dobriyal in crucial roles. The film is directed by popular dance choreographer Ahmed Khan, and produced by Sajid Nadiadwala. If you remember, the first film (which I hated) had a quite likeable album, by Meet Bros., Amaal Mallik and Manj Musik. A “bonus” song by Pranay Rijia was released later. For this album, the music composers of the first film are completely forgotten, and except for Pranaay, they have all been replaced, by Sandeep Shirodkar, Gourov-Roshin, Arko Pravo Mukherjee and Mithoon. Now, I basically know that there will be a horde of remakes in this album, just by looking at the composers’ names — Sandeep Shirodkar and Gourov-Roshin have basically just created almost only remakes ever since they debuted. Arko and Mithoon’s songs do pique my interest, but nothing like “Oh, I’m so excited, I’m dying of excitement”.. nothing of that level. Anyway, let’s see just how well this album upholds the reputation (or demolishes it) of its predecessor.


Just because he has two songs, both remakes, Sandeep Shirodkar becomes lead composer for Baaghi 2. (It was Meet Bros. in ‘Baaghi’). His first remake is Mundiyan, a remake of Labh Janjua’s ‘Mundiyan Toh Bachke Rahi’. I must say, though, the song is quite enjoyable. Sandeep gets the Bhangra vibe right, and that’s the most important in such songs. Navraj Hans and Palak Muchhal make for some interesting vocals — especially Palak, who explores such songs once (okay, maybe twice, but not more) in a blue moon. She even raps! Navraj Hans is a vocal powerhouse as it is; there’s no use writing that he’s done well (it was taken for granted that he would). The one place Sandeep does mess up though, is the uncountable vocal breaks, disturbing proceedings many times, slowing down the pace of the song.
He doesn’t fare as well in his second song Ek Do Teen, remake of the song with the same name from ‘Tezaab’. Now, this is a very iconic song, not so much for its composition and music, (which was quite clichéd, if I may say so) than for Madhuri’s iconic moves on the dance floor. But even then, the flak the song is receiving is quite unjustified. Maybe it’s because the dance moves have been slaughtered (they have), or maybe it’s because the remake trend has achieved this abominable level these days. But the song isn’t that bad. Shreya substituting for Alka is a great decision; she sounds okay in the mukhda but amazing in the antaras. At least we haven’t gotten somebody like Neha Kakkar in charge of this song. The music is functional at best, with nothing remarkable in Sandeep’s new arrangements, except the easy-to-miss electric guitar riffs, and the spunky Bappi-ish disco sounds. Also, why does she only count till 20 here! That’s destroying the point of the song! 😂
Mithoon’s Lo Safar is a better result of his composition sung by Jubin Nautiyal, than the last one, which was ‘Tum Mere Ho’ (Hate Story IV). Here, at least, the composition isn’t overly sensuous, and not even trying to be. It is just a humble typical Mithoon melancholic melody, supposed to be a romantic song but playing more like a sad song. Jubin sings it well, and Mithoon’s arrangements consisting of nice guitar riffs, an amazing rap on many drums at the same time, and a serene flute, work wonders. Sayeed Quadri’s lyrics are just not the kind of lyrics he’s known for. Having written so many beautiful lyrics (especially the amazing ‘Ji Huzoori’ from ‘Ki & Ka’) for Mithoon, this should have been much better.
Gourov-Roshin’s Soniye Dil Nayi is also a remake of some T-Series pop single, whose credits on YouTube are so vague, they don’t credit the original composer, even in the video for the original song! The only good thing about this song, is that it doesn’t let Ankit Tiwari’s lazy voice get too much control over the song, because Shruti Pathak arrives at the right times to save us, with amazing aalaaps. Her portions are amazing, but the composition both of these singers have to sing is lazy, boring, dull and any other negative adjective you can think of. The composers try their best to ape Ankit’s composing style, so that his lines always end with us expecting a “Sunn Raha Hai Na Tu..” or a “Teri galliyan..” to follow. Too much said about this song.
The only composer repeated from ‘Baaghi’ is Pranaay Rijia, whose song ‘Get Ready To Fight’ from ‘Baaghi’ I neither reviewed nor heard (except in the movie) because it released late as a single track. Here he comes back to present Get Ready To Fight Again a song which you should be ready to fight again. That’s about it. I won’t tell you about the horde of singers roped in to sing a worthless song, and I won’t tell you about the actionless arrangements, even though this is probably the background song for when Tiger Shroff is showing off his stunts. This time the song gets a more folksy vocal treatment, thanks to Jatinder Shah’s vocals. Benny Dayal in the original song sounded terrible. (Let’s just put that out there since I hadn’t reviewed that.)
The best song of the album, more out of helplessness, than actually on its merit, is Arko’s O Saathi, a romantic melody sung by Atif Aslam, which fits perfectly into the Arko template of romantic songs. It might be a rehash of ‘Nazm Nazm’ (Bareilly Ki Barfi) and ‘Tere Sang Yaara’ (Rustom), with the exact same duff rhythm, and strings, and everything else, but it nevertheless sticks with you, because it is charming in spite of being heard before. Payal Dev’s humming lends the song a serene quality. The antara of the song is amazing; it follows a really unconventional composition, at least unconventional for Arko’s music. Atif sings it impeccably, especially the “Allah Mujhe” line. The hookline’s tune seemed forcibly stretched to cover about fifteen seconds of runtime each time it plays.. that’s about a minute that could’ve been spent in adding another antara! But I must say, Arko’s lyrics are beautiful, especially the mukhda!


While I still listen to ‘Baaghi’s music album sometimes even now, when I’m bored, I doubt I’ll listen to this album even one month from now. While “‘Baaghi’s album had zero remakes, this has four. While “‘Baaghi’s album was not a ‘BAAGHI’ (rebel) at all, this one totally is!

Happy Ending is an upcoming Bollywood comedy film, which is being promoted as ‘a comedy about romantic comedies’. The film has been directed by director duo Raj Nidimoru & Krishna D.K. and produced by Saif Ali Khan, Dinesh Vijan and Sunil Lulla. The film stars Saif Ali Khan, Ileana D’Cruz, Kalki Koechlin and Govinda in lead roles, with Saif in a double role. (The second one is like Pritam!! :D) Last year Raj & DK came up with a Zom-Com ‘Go Goa Gone’, which had awesome experimental music by Sachin-Jigar. So, it was natural, that they would stick to their favorites (worked with them in ‘Shor In The City’ as well) and this film also has music by the talented young duo. 🙂 This year wasn’t as great for the duo as was last year. The single from ‘Finding Fanny’ remains their best of the year so far. Let’s see if this changes with this album! 😀


1. Paaji Tussi Such A Pussy Cat
Singers ~ Amitabh Bhattacharya, Divya Kumar & Jigar Saraiya, Lyrics by ~ Amitabh Bhattacharya

The rhythmic and catchy humming with which the first song starts, instantly makes you leave all work and concentrate on the song. The dynamic hums are one of a kind and I’ve never heard something of that kind in Bollywood music. Amitabh Bhattacharya opens the song in his nasal voice, which does provide loads of comic effect. The rhythmic humming continues in the background, and that’s what makes the song sound like a genius composition. The hookline is one of the catchiest ones of the year. The way Amitabh says the ‘caaaaaaaat’ and ‘braaaaaaat’ etc, is just too funny and also very nicely placed. The sound effects by Sachin-Jigar are, as usual, top-class. Small things like the female chorus singing chikachikchik attract our attention and at that time, we can’t help but appreciate the geniusness and talent of Sachin-Jigar! The last antara is at a different, slower pace, and yet it doesn’t create any disturbance whatsoever. The whistles which the duo has added are awesome! One more genius part of the song is the vocals of Jigar in the background, constantly singing something or the other, like ‘Oh tussi’ after each of Amitabh’s lines. Divya Kumar makes an entry towards the end, and with his folk-sy vocals, gives the song a dynamic ending with a big bang. His soprano bit at the end is really worth hearing! Jigar interrupts (I actually liked his interruptions, however!) in between Divya’s parts too, singing some gibberish that sounds awesome and also that ‘paaji paaji paaji’ bit. And also, do not move to the next song without hearing the cute meow! at the end! The lyrics by Amitabh are quite funny, too! Take this line, “bad luck ne diya tohfa, khol ke ho gaya khush” or “aake apne hi chakravyuh mein, beta Abhimanyu Tu phansa”. There are plenty more funny lines! You must have heard this one already, but still, I’ll tell you that it is one of the catchiest songs of the year! A must-listen and another successful innovative and unusual attempt by Sachin-Jigar! #5StarHotelSong!

 

2. G Phaad Ke
Singers ~ Divya Kumar & Shefali Alvares, Lyrics by ~ Ashish Pandit

A techno sound starts the next song, followed by a catchy rap by an uncredited guy. This is another song, which has a catchy hookline, and everything around the hookline is also equally catchy. Divya Kumar was an unusual choice for this club song, but he has fit in well with the club feel, and Sachin-Jigar have used his voice very well, to suit the composition. The arrangements mostly consist of techno elements, but the techno elements have also been used so awesomely, which makes this track stand out amongst other regular club songs by unknown people nowadays. Shefali, who seems to only sing in these kind of songs strictly, does well in her part. She also sings in places around Divya’s voice throughout the song. The aaha’s in the song, which I don’t know whether she has sung or not, have been brilliantly placed and sound great. The “hillll Ke naacho” part is mindblowing! The lyrics by Ashish Pandit are purely for comedic effect, and they do their work. Unless you see the spelling of the song, you would not get the humour. That’s pretty smart (and also evil 😂). The small percussion beats which Sachin-Jigar have added in the song are very catchy. It has “CATCHY” written all over it! So naacho saare g phaad ke! #5StarHotelSong!!

 

3. Jaise Mera Tu
Singers ~ Arijit Singh & Priya Panchal, Lyrics by ~ Priya Panchal

This song is the Hindi remake of Sachin-Jigar’s Telugu song ‘Meher Meher’ from ‘D For Dopidi’ which was a Raj & Dk production. Cute guitar riffs start off the song, and then Priya’s beautiful voice takes over to sing a fascinating mukhda. It is awesome how she changes her voice to suit the crazy songs like ‘Johnny Johnny’ or ‘Maa Ka Phone’ to the songs like ‘Gulabi’ or this one. This song also marks the first song of Arijit Singh for Sachin-Jigar. I was always hoping for a beautiful romantic song by Arijit composed by them. The composition is very refreshing, just like ‘Khushamdeed’ from ‘Go Goa Gone’. It is one that can lift your spirits, a breezy and light, cute melody. The harmony between Arijit and Priya is awesome, and it is accentuated by the magical harmonium bits in between. The antara is not too different from the mukhda, yet gives a relaxing feeling. The lyrics by Priya are very beautiful and romantic. When Arijit enters the song, he brings in with him a whole new beautiful and magical ambience. The hookline is so catchy, even though it sounds heard before. When Arijit sings, ‘aise tera main’, the percussion behind him is awesome. Such small details Sachin-Jigar have given attention to, and that is why they have been successful in making this song so beautiful and attractive. One of the better-composed romantic songs of the season! Nothing innovative, but very refreshing! And the breathtaking harmonium! #5StarHotelSong!

 

4. Khamma Ghani
Singers ~ Papon, Smita Jain & Vidhi Mehta, Lyrics by ~ Amitabh Bhattacharya

Time for some emotional stuff! The next song is a kind of sad song, which confuses you and makes you think whether it is a sad song, or a happy romantic one! Guitars kick off this track too, and pave the way for Papon’s Mohit-esque vocals. Papon’s rendition is enchanting, and he succeeds to put the right emotions in the song. Amitabh has introduced yet another unusual term in Bollywood music — ‘Khamma Ghani’ which is a Rajasthani expression for greeting, meaning either ‘welcome’ or ‘sorry’. (In the title of my post, I’ve used the former meaning, and so has Amitabh in the song) The hookline reminds you of one of Sachin-Jigar’s best and most famous works, ‘Saibo’ from ‘Shor In The City’. The female chorus of Smita Jain and Vidhi Mehta sound beautiful as a complement to Papon. The lyrics have been written in a very touching way, and that emotion has been emphasized by the extremely brilliant composition by Sachin-Jigar. The lyrics of the antara are especially very nice and touching. Plus, the words saza yafta have been used so incredibly geniusly by Amitabh! “Hai dil mera saza yafta!” What a comparison! The drums in the hookline have been utilized in a great way. The guitar interlude is worth hearing and the tune of the antara which follows is just spellbinding! Towards the end a Rajasthani folk-osh voice can be heard, which I doubt is of Papon, but whoever sang it has done it so well, that it is a pity he’s not credited. If it is Papon, however, I just have to give him a standing ovation! Very touching, emotional composition and lyrics, and a heartrending rendition by Papon and the female chorus! #5StarHotelSong!

 

5. Mileya Mileya
Singers ~ Rekha Bhardwaj, Jigar Saraiya & Priya Andrews, Lyrics by ~ Priya Panchal

Sometimes a song makes you so speechless, that you cannot classify it into any specific category, romantic, sad etc. It becomes a special song close to your heart. This is exactly what this song has done to me. It is an upbeat yet very melodious and emotional composition, which has equally touching lyrics by Priya Panchal. The three singers, Jigar, newcomer Priya Andrews, and the wonderful Rekha Bhardwaj, have harmonized with each other very well, and create a beautiful atmosphere. Priya’s soft vocals, Rekha’s rustic voice and Jigar’s highly autotuned yet pleasant voice sound awesome together. Though Rekha seems like an unusual choice, but she’s the one who puts all the class into the song. The arrangements are brilliant as well. Special mention has to be made of the exceptional saxophone played by Shirish Malhotra both in the interlude and the conclusion. The distribution of lines has been done perfectly and the lines which Rekha has got, are the best in the song! Priya’s beautiful lyrics come to life with the three singers’ exceptional rendition. All the lines of the song have been geniusly written and I can tell that Priya has evolved a lot as a lyricist since her ‘Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya’ and ‘Jayantabhai Ki Luv Story’ days. The hookline has been written very very beautifully. Beautiful vocals, arrangements, composition and the best lyrics! #5StarHotelSong!

 

6. Haseena Tu Kameena Mein
Singers ~ Rahul Pandey, Shruti Pathak & Siddharth Basrur, Lyrics by ~ Amitabh Bhattacharya

The ending song to this great album is just as great and catchy as the other upbeat songs of the album. Rahul Pandey debuts with this song, and he has sung great, slightly resembling Ash King or Nikhil D’Souza in places. The catchy and quirky arrangements definitely grasp your attention. It is slightly resemblant of ‘Dil Duffer’ from ‘Gori Tere Pyaar Mein’, and ‘Daaru Desi’ from ‘Cocktail’. The tune is very refreshing and makes for a very fun listen. The sounds in the background are probably produced by beatboxing. The snaps, whistles and other attraction add to the catchiness. It seems like Sachin-Jigar have the recipe for catchy hit songs kept somewhere in a secret cupboard to which they refer each time they get a brief for an upbeat song! 😂 They are experts at this stuff! The lyrics by Amitabh Bhattacharya are very amusing as well. The antaras have an awesome tune, and the ‘don’t you know don’t you know’ is just awesome! Shruti and Rahul have awesome chemistry and sound well singing with each other. Siddharth has been kept mostly in the background. A catchy song which makes for a very fun listen! Has been made very geniusly! Refreshing! #5StarHotelSong!


Happy Ending is an album which… Well, which redefines a rom-com album! Sachin-Jigar have provided exceptional music to this romantic comedy, and Raj & DK, Saif Ali Khan and Dinesh Vijan have done a great job in choosing the songs! Three upbeat and three melodious songs makes the album well-balanced and one that would stay with you for a very long time! It is one of the best albums of the year! That’s why I would like to invite all true music lovers to enjoy this album by saying, Khamma Ghani, aao aur yeh album suno!

Amit Sahni Ki List is the latest romantic comedy movie starring Vir Das, along with a bunch of supporting actors like Kavi Shastri, Vega Tamotia, Anindita Nayar and Natasha Rastogi. The film is directed by Ajay Bhuyan and produced under the banner Pyxis Pictures. The story is about a man trying to find himself a prefect girl based on his list. The film has released on this Friday and is not getting such a good response. (As if it was going to 😛 ) I was not expecting much from the music of the film, but when I read Raghu Dixit’s name as one of the composers, that automatically changed. The other composers are Palash Muchhal, Warren Mendonsa & Sidd Coutto (Alien Chutney), Shivi R. Kashyap and the album also features an instrumental piece by Karthick Iyer. So read on to find out whether this album can entertain you, just satisfy you or bore you!


1. Ab Mein Kya Karoon:- Singer ~ Raghu Dixit, Music by ~ Raghu Dixit, Lyrics by ~ Ankur Tiwari

This song starts with the typpppical (say in typical Indian accent) Raghu Dixit guitar strums, and it makes its way into one of the most senseless songs of the month. Actually saying that can be avoided, because ‘Mawaali Qawwali’ from ‘Lekar Hum Deewana Dil’ was also senseless, but at least it was catchy. Here, first of all, the music is too loud with drums almost everywhere, so as a result the words are not audible properly. Secondly, some of the words he says are audible but not interpretable and so that’s a problem with his diction, I guess. The tune is horribly weak, and the English hook might just be the worst thing the guy has ever come up with! The positive points, if any, are probably the brass instruments, which support the rock guitars and drums in the hook. A weak song in all aspects, which comes across as a noise instead of music.

 

2. What The Fark:- Singers ~ Rahul Vaidya, Amit Mishra & Aditi Singh Sharma, Music by ~ Palash Muchhal, Lyrics by ~ Ajay Bhuyan & Tina Nagpaul

This next song is thoroughly enjoyable if I don’t look at it from a reviewer point-of-view, with all the techno beats required for a Western type dance song. However, I am looking at it from a reviewer point-of-view, so it definitely isn’t perfect. The repetition of the hook line gets too boring and makes the song sound monotonous after a certain time. The voices of the three singers can hardly be understood that whose voice is which, and Aditi’s voice seems to just come at the beginning. She might even be singing, but one can’t separate her voice whatsoever from the two male voices, which are also kind of mixed together. Techno and electronic beats have actually been overdone, and this song also becomes very loud because of them. It is catchy, though, so it’s worth a listen or two.

 

3. Pyar Hai Kutti Cheez:- Singer ~ Vir Das, Music by ~ Warren Mendonsa / Sidd Coutto (Alien Chutney), Lyrics by ~ Vir Das 

This is a song sung and written by Vir Das himself, and composed by the other two members of his band ‘Alien Chutney’, Warren and Sidd. The song is a heavy metal rock song, and naturally drums and electric guitar play the vital role in the arrangements. The tune is weak, except for the hook line, and Vir’s singing is average, out of pitch at places, but still worth praising since he isn’t a professional singer. He has written lyrics well too which are about the character not wanting any love in his life, and the disadvantages or bad things about it. 😛 The composers have kept the song short and that is good, because who would have heard a song like this for five minutes straight? 😀 A couple of times of listening is all it deserves!

 

4. Aisi Hi Hoon Mein:- Singer ~ Shivi R. Kashyap, Music by ~ Shivi R. Kashyap, Lyrics by ~ Shivi R. Kashyap, Shiv Singh Benawra

Do you know who Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Taylor Swift etc. are? Do you know what kind of songs they make? If you don’t then don’t worry! Their Indian counterpart has been discovered finally! And her name is Shivi R. Kashyap. Yes, this song reminded me immediately of those songs by female American popstars like the ones I mentioned before. It has been composed, sung and written in a fully western way, and the attempt is applaudable. The techno beats ensure you are grooving for most of the time, and the tune is also not bad! The lyrics are mostly in English, and that’s what I didn’t like about the track, the use of Hindi and English together, making it sound stupid at places. The composer has made a song which is pretty good, but lacks in the lyrics department. Definitely give it a try! Good attempt of a pop song.

 

5. Sargoshi:- Singers ~ Palak Muchhal, Anirudh Bhola, Music by ~ Palash Muchhal, Lyrics by ~ Palak Muchhal

This song is a soft, calm and soothing romantic track, composed by Palash Muchhal and written and sung by his elder sister Palak. It starts with piano notes, followed by the voice of ‘Duplicate Shreya Ghoshal’, Palak Muchhal. She sounds just like Shreya Ghoshal used to in her earlier days in the industry, but she cannot create the magic which Shreya’s voice holds. Anyways, she sings this song well, and her co-singer Anirudh Bhola also sounds good. The tune is nothing fresh, but the lyrics are beautiful! The arrangements are average. The harmony the two singers have created in the hook line is so lovely, it will leave you speechless! Beautiful, calm and soothing, but a fault in the composition.

 

6. Waakeyi:- Singers ~ Nikhil D’Souza, Shruti Pathak, Music by ~ Raghu Dixit, Lyrics by ~ Ankur Tiwari

Now, this is a class composition! Raghu makes a re-entry into the soundtrack, and brings with him a very beautiful romantic song, with very interesting beats and awesome vocals. The trademark of Raghu, the flute, is present to entertain throughout the song. The unusual rhythm on which this song is composed sounds very cool! Shruti Pathak and Nikhil D’Souza both sing near flawlessly. The lyrics by Ankur Tiwari are a bit ordinary, but still go well with the type of happy-go-lucky song that this is. The arrangements are also beautiful. This song is far better than what the soundtrack has offered so far. A must-listen, unusual but cooool romantic song! #5StarHotelSong!

 

7. Parchhai:- Singer ~ Sonu Nigam, Music by ~ Palash Muchhal, Lyrics by ~ Palak Muchhal

This song is a sad version of the earlier song, ‘Sargoshi’. The name Sonu Nigam itself can tell that this song will be better than its romantic version. Again, Palak’s lyrics are very beautiful, but here, Palash also excels in the arrangements, with strings forming the whole background of the song, and the violin sounds extremely awesome!! Sonu’s vocals are obviously the highlight of this song. The tune is the same one, slowed down, but his voice takes it to a whole new level. Beautiful, calm, touching and soothing, again, but the difference all lies in vocals and arrangements.

 

8. Violin Recital:- Instrumental, Music by ~ Karthick Iyer

This instrumental piece is sheer beauty! Though it has been called violin recital, the violin has been supported by a variety of instruments. The classical piece towards the end is awesome! The tablas, sitar etc. create a wonderful ambience, and make the track very interesting to listen to. The violins have been played perfectly! Karthick Iyer has managed everything so beautifully, and this instrumental piece is better than most songs on this soundtrack! Beautiful instrumental piece! It is PERFECT! #5StarHotelSong!


Amit Sahni Ki List is full of songs. 😀 Yes, it is full of songs. Though the first half of the soundtrack might make you feel a bit bored and as if you’ve wasted your time, the second half is full of the beauty. The romantic tracks stand out in this album whereas the other songs come across as noises, or rather wandering souls with no apparent reason to be on Earth. 😛 Seriously, it seems they have just added these songs to increase the number of songs. Also, this is probably the first time an instrumental track has impressed me so much, and might be the last! So, this album starts bad, ends beautifully but still doesn’t leave that mark in your head to come back and hear it again. Shorter would have been sweeter!
