Dabangg - Music Review
Full on masti
Hud Hud! Here comes desi Robinhood aka Salman Khan with his film Dabangg and its full-on-masti music. The promos are already a hit on the small screen. So what is lined up for the music buffs, or, to say, Sallu fans?
Sajid-Wajid, Salmanís favourite composer duo is back after Veer, creating songs for Dabangg as well. So, plug-in to Dabangg music, which for sure is going to entertain you.
In a typical Sajid-Wajid style, the album begins with Tere Mast Mast Do Nain, a Bollywood romantic number soused in sufi flavour. If Rahat Fateh Ali Khan delivers the song in his usual vigour, Shreya Ghosalís saccharine voice adds melody to the song. Deadly combo and terrific rendering! However, the remix version of the song fails to make a mark. Rahat again wins hearts with the sad version of the song which is slow and immensely passionate.
Welcome Munni Badnam Hui song and get into the Dabangg rustic mood. The masala track has Malaika Aroraís thumkas, so expect the screen to sizzle. Newcomer Lalit Pandit is the composer of the song and gets Mamta Singh and Aishwarya to sing this raunchy number, and one will definitely enjoy its catchy lyrics, main jhandu bam hui darling tere liye - thatís mind-boggling. Well, the credit goes to lyricist Jalees Sherwani. Alas! the remix version of the song has not much to offer.
The album slips into mushy mood with Chori Kiya Re Jiya. Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghosal team up again to give us a love ballad. But the track falls short of expectations; sadly it is just an average number.
Now comes the true Dabangg song. Hud Hud Dabangg is gritty and valorous in tone and who else than Sukhwinder to sing it. As usual, the crooner has done a brilliant job with this number which makes it one of the must-hear songs in the whole album. So what if itís a bit similar to the Omkara track.
Hamka Peeni Hai, is another song that promises sharab, shabab and music. The folk based song crooned by Wajid with Master Salim is full on masti which makes it undoubtedly a treat for the Salman maniacs. The remix version is racy and saucy; get ready to have a blast.
The most entertaining of the lot seems to be the Dabangg theme, which is extensively used in the promos. The instrumental song has some of Salmanís dhasu dialogues from the film too. Like a fireball, the theme song enthralls.
Music directors have done full justice to the album and to Salmanís character. The actorís die-hard fans will surely not be disappointed. The groovy songs bustle with vim and fun.
You would like to hear - Hud Hud Dabangg, Tere Mast Mast Do Nain, Munni Badnaam.
