Cocktail (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Posted by Karthik

Everything just works seamlessly in Tumhi ho bandhu – Kavita Seth’s vocals, Neeraj Shridhar’s super enthu hook and Pritam high-energy music… everything! Shalmali Kholgade, fresh from her Pareshaan high, rocks Daru desi, along with Benny Dayal – a spirited, groovy song in true Pritam style. Yaariyaan‘s rock version, with Mohan ‘Agnee’ Kannan and Shilpa Rao, and the reprise featuring Sunidhi and Arijit are both phenomenally soulful, incorporating unplugged phrases where Mohan and Sunidhi are absolutely incredible! Second hand jawaani‘s lyrics by Irshad Kamil stands out, but the item’ish tune doesn’t, while the classic Punjabi folk song, Jugni, gets yet another pulsating, addictive mix, featuring Arif Lohar and Harshdeep Kaur. Javed Bashir’s Tera naam japdi phiran is highly appealing bubblegum pop, that retains its lively sound even better in the remix. As if all this enjoyable music wasn’t enough, Pritam tops the soundtrack with the wonderfully rich and innovative Luttna, in two versions, at that – the former, a psychedelic mix with the music forming patterns in highly unusual ways, and the latter, a slightly more conformist and pleasant variant, both featuring amazing vocals by Masuma Anwar, Sahir Ali Bagga and Anupam Amod. Bloody heady cocktail of a soundtrack from Pritam!

  • Super awesome music by numero uno Pritam. 2nd 200 in 2012. Most probably he will get 3rd one in Barfi!

  • awesome work by SUNIDHI CHAUHAN AND PRITAM.

    WHAT TO SAY.. tumhi ho bandhu n desi daru seems to b from pritams factory..but to my surprise, he is realy gud in producing some mature music too..and to top up irshad kamil’s lyrics..where do he get these from???my personl fav-luttna.hw fabulously irshad has penned it..n tera naam japdi fira(just love javed bashir)

    but i feel jugni by arif lohar is better than pritams version..

    Arif Lohar’s Jugni is a rehashed version of the Jugni performed by Arif Lohar himself and Meesha Shafi on Coke Studio Pakistan Season 3.
    It’s a bit too similar, arrangement wise too. Rohail Hyatt deserves some credit, atleast.


  • Scratchy Singh

    He copied my tunes in ‘Pyar k Side Effect’ and now he copies my Brother  – Second Hand jawani – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A8DOzEV6jWQ

  • Pankaj Sethi

    Sunidhi rocks in Yaariaan!! kind of unplugged!!

  • Chisel Bhatia

    @milliblog can you pls sort out the composers or credits for all the songs…flipkart mentions 3 composers for LUTTNA…pls clarify the details of the albums…  http://www.flipkart.com/cocktail/p/itmdaghy5g5v4e7f?pid=DGADAGHWYZ4UZHJD&ref=79c2c840-0cd1-4dcd-a545-b2c055f0015c

  • Rana Roy

    Chisel Bhatia……. according to the Eros International source….Pritam Composed all the songs…except Jugni …which is rearranged by Pritam…!!!

  • sunilssounds

    Off-topic but felt I should share this http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dMVaoDepVA

  • Chisel Bhatia

    “main sharabi” is also there….again the same confusion as “life ye mausambi hai”

    • Chisel Bhatia

      sung by Yo Yo Honey singh…!!

  • SunnyRathod

    Yaariyan is copied from 2 superhit songs of Coldplay – “In my place” & “Yellow.”

  • Jaydeep

    Bang for the buck..thoroughly entertaining album. Pritam packs in a lot of punch in this album topped with mind blowing sound design.

    Beginning of the tumhi ho bandhu melody is reminiscent of Shobha Mudagal’s ali more angana, more so becoz of the similarity in singing styles of the singers.

  • huzefa jairajpuri

    @karthik-second hand jawaani lyrics has been penned by amitabh bhattacharya..imho

  • Jaydeep

    I am over with Pritam’s bubblegum pop sound in this album, but honestly can’t get over luttna, both versions..Pritam has totally outdone himself. Even yaariyan is delectable. 

  • chinmay shah

    Nice soundtrack by Pritam.Tera Naam Japdi Phiran (Remix) is awesome and very similar to Little Bad Girl by David Guetta + Taio Cruz.Neeraj Shridhar’s Tumhi ho bandhu is also superb…rest all are ok….but its really a very good mix of many types of songs….Pritam Rocks again……producing music similar to the western pop….

  • nakhre

    Tera Naam Japdi main tune sounds very similar to Sanu Rog laun by NFAK



  • Milna Antony

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yEo5IxzqGxQ'Tere Naam Japdi Phiran’ seems to be be lifted/inspired by the above

  • Thiru Vetti

    Tumhi ho bandu is one of the most childish songs I have heard. Nothing great. Surprised to see 200. Wow, the more I dig up old reviews, the more disappointing I reviews I see!
