Zilla Ghaziabad (Music review), Hindi – Amjad Nadeem & Bappa Lahiri

Posted by Karthik

The title song by Sukhwinder Singh carries a whiff of Omkara’s title song, but is markedly more simplistic and masala’ish. Baap ka maal doesn’t deserve any comment whatsoever. Ditto – or even worse – for Bappa Lahiri guest (unwanted) composition, Chamiya No.1. But the composing duo of Amjad-Nadeem mildly surprise in Ranjha jogi and Tu hai rab – the former a Dabangg-style faux-folk melody and the latter, a passably pleasant melody spearheaded by Mohit Chauhan and mangled only by the annoying presence of Tulsi Kumar. At least these 2 songs are in line with the promise Amjad Nadeem showed in Angel!

    You considered reviewing the soundtrack for David? I quite like a few songs on it; think you may enjoy it.

      Oh wait, I feel silly. Did not know it was a Tamil soundtrack as well.

    Okay, real question:

    In Tu Hai Rab Mera, around 1:10, there’s a sample with the lines “Sakhi re mora laagi” and “mann le gayo”. It’s a very common sample used in Asian Massive songs (from a while ago) – was wondering if there’s any story behind that.
