Happy Ending (Music review), Hindi – Sachin-Jigar

Posted by Karthik

G phaad ke is a bloody catchy mix – Divya Kumar and Shefali Alvares scorch the dance floor with their enthusiasm. The tune moves in intriguingly captivating directions before comfortably settling on the addictive hilke nacho hook. Paaji tussi such a pussy cat has a heady, corny twang and along with its hilarious lyrics, it’s a riot! Siddharth Basrur, Rahul Pandey and Shruti Pathak are superb in the lilting Haseena tu – the almost conversational tune is wrapped in a punchy package, topped with the thumping percussion. Rekha Bhardwaj is an oddly interesting inclusion between Jigar and Priya Andrews in Mileya mileya, but the trio deliver the breezy tune darn well, complete with a lovely sax signature all through. Khamma ghani depends on the solid vocals of Papon and the man is rock solid, owning the melancholic tune, with generous support from Smita and Vidhi for the hook. The composing duo reuse their kick-ass Telugu song, Meher meher, from D For Dopidi – as they should – in Jaise mera tu. It worked brilliantly in Telugu and it easily fits here, with its harmonium-led melody! Happy Ending ends Sachin-Jigar’s middling 2014 score card in bouncy style! (barring Finding Fanny’s solo).

    superb tracks!! After a long time I am liking the whole album itself. Great job!!

  • Aakash

    Sachin-Jigar always manage that one quirky track that stands out! Be it Babaji Ki Booti, Chanchal Mann or Paaji here!
    Amazing stuff!

  • Sambhu Mahendran

    Still the most underrated music composers in the industry!!

    Sometimes, I dont quite understand what constitues good music. To me this album is anything but that.
    Also, I would never understand why you thought Kabira wasn’t a great song. I do understand the need for being innovative in music. I do appreciate a lot of freshness that the likes of Rahman and Trivedi bring to their music.. however, underlying the use of new voices, fusion of genres and newer sounds and instruments is a basic melody. If that fails, all fails. Unfortunately, I could not find one song in this album that has a strong memorable melody.

      so true.. dunno whether this album deserves a 200 just cuz its a melange of totally dissimilar sounds nd instruments.. for me it was too shrill.. sachin jigar tend to over-use their electronica in search for innovation so much so that good elements drown out… g phaad nd paaji try desperately to sound quirky nd party pop.. only khamma ghani works for me for minimal sound effects..

      I think ‘good music’ is nothing but ‘music I like’ (or, you like). If a LOT of people like a piece of music, that doesn’t naturally make it ‘good music’ either; it’s at best popular music.

      I personally felt the melodies in this album – the basic melody, as you call it – really good. Khamma Ghani, Meher meher (that I loved even in its original Telugu avatar), Haseena tu and Mileya – had great, hummable melodies IMO. G phaad ke and Paaji tussi are fantastic dance numbers, again IMO.

      I didn’t buy into YJHD, for some reason. It was ok, but nothing that I kept going back to, as a soundtrack – I loved the film, though.

    Doesn’t the pre-chorus of the song ‘G phaad Ke’ sounds bit similar to Sean Pauls number ‘Temperature’?
