Aiyyaa (Music review), Hindi – Amit Trivedi

Posted by Karthik

Dreamum wakeupum’s Mehmood-style South Indian parody works wonders. Soumya Rao’s singing is impeccable, but with rib-tickling lyrics, Amitabh Bhattacharya is the real hero of the song. Wakda takes the Mehmood-feel – sound-wise – with that comic, faux-carnatic infusion, but Amit’s own spirited style underlines the song more than the parody. What To Do is better off being called ‘Izzat pappad he he he’! Amitabh’s imaginatively funny lyrics come to the fore again, while Sneha Khanwalkar joins him singing it with the right dose of lampooning vocals. Sunidhi’s lavni, Sava dollar, is perhaps the most conventional of all songs here, but the farcical approach to becoming a heroine and a playful chorus are endearing. Aga bai spends almost a minute with an ambient prelude before Shalmali Kholgade and Monali Thakur rock the foot-tapping techno song with the titillating title call-out! Mahek bhi’s prelude lasts even longer! The accordion here makes it Barfi’ish, while the background’ish shehnai recalls Swades’ Yeh jo des hai, but Amit’s work in the chorus and Shreya’s vocals take this song to new heights. After successfully scaling most other genres, Amit Trivedi leaves his stamp convincingly by delivering one of the most hip parody soundtracks in recent times.

Keywords: Amit Trivedi, Aiyyaa, Rani Mukherjee, 200, #200
