Patiala House (Music review), Hindi – Shankar Ehsaan Loy

Posted by Karthik

Jassi’s vocals make a huge difference in Laung da lashkara, a passably catchy track; but Rola pa gaya is severely weighed down by its stereotyped SEL sound. Hans Raj Hans’ Tumba tumba is delightfully earthly and tuneful, while Shafqat’s Kyun main jaagoon and Vishal Dadlani’s Aadat hai voh are both brilliantly scored, with fabulous lyrics! Baby when you talk to me has a lilting, 80s pop one-hit wonder sound while Richa Sharma rounds off the soundtrack with the resonant Aval Allah. Patiala House gains a lot from its elegant melodies! And yes, something needs to be done about Hard Kaur.

    That was quick! How about a review of Chandrika Tandons’s soul call which has been nominated for a Grammy..

    Definitely a sincere effort from SEL and it’s really great to hear Hans Raj sir’s voice in mainstream Bollywood and that too with SEL. Hope he does get more offers but not stereotypical ones.

  • Liked all songs except Laungda Lashkara and Rola pe gaya. Aadat is damn good! 😀 Fine album overall, good comeback by SEL after a few dire outings.

  • “And yes, something needs to be done about Hard Kaur.”

    Completely agree. She sounds THE same every time. She makes Dharti Hila de/Main tera Dhadkan teri of Rola pe gaya too. n I wonder why is it that every composer seems to taking her for that same thing.

    This one is kinda mixed bag for me..but one thing I sure appreciate about SEL is that they seem to put in a lot of imagninaion & hardwork in casting the right singers for their compositions…I mean when was last time we heard Jassi or did we hear anything at all from him after dil le gayi kudi gujarat ki..& still laungda lashkara sounds tailor made for him. Ditto for choice of Hans Raj Hans for Tumba.
