Hasee Toh Phasee (Music review), Hindi – Vishal-Shekhar

Posted by Karthik

Punjabi Wedding Song is as per the name – adequately Sunidhi Chauhan, with the right sprinkling of English hooks. Shake it like Shammi is a genuinely interesting take on Shammi-era rock and roll; fantastic singing by Benny Dayal and innovatively groovy. Drama queen, despite the energy, is standard-issue Dharma sound. It’s in Manchala, Zehnaseeb and Ishq bulaava that the duo unleashes something new – the tunes are consistently melodious and engaging, no doubt, but there’s something sparkling in the backgrounds, as if their usual sound has been spruced up a notch! Vishal-Shekhar open their 2014 account on a promising note!

    Zehnaseeb reminded of an old hindi song, and luckily it’s actually an old amazing song from V-S themselves “Chaha Maine Chaha” from Supari (2003). Good songs.

    • Rony Paul Simon

      I felt zehnaseeb sounds so much like mere bina from crook.

      • nakhre

        I haven’t heard that song since it came out. You’re right, tho, not the mukhda but the antras sound a lot like zehnaseeb.

  • Siva

    Ishq Bulaava reminds me of some old Hindi song. I can’t recall the name of the song. Has the tune/music been inspired/lifted from any other song?

    • Nadeem

      me too! i’m going mad. its an 80’s song! can’t recall. plz help!

      • Subodh

        Not an 80’s song. Its similar to Rajesh Khanna-Kishore Kumar song -‘Yeh jo Mohabbat hai”

    • It definitely has a lot of similarities with ‘tumse milke’ from Parinda…don’t you think?

  • Subodh

    Ishq Bulava is VS’s best song since ‘Bhare Naina’…and just like Bhare Naina, its not burning the charts while Zehnaseeb which is comparatively mediocre is ruling it..

  • Garfield Dsouza

    ‘Punjabi Wedding Song’ begins with the first bars of ‘Iko Iko’ by Belle Stars! I went mad figuring that out!
