Badrinath Ki Dulhaniya (Music review), Hindi – Amaal Mallik, Tanishk Bagchi, Akhil Sachdeva and Bappi Lahiri

Posted by Karthik

Aashiq surrender hua is a dedicated Bollywoodisation of an infectious, foot-tapping South-Indian kuthu song! Amaal’s second, Roke na ruke, is the complete opposite! The song transcends conventional Dharma pathos templates riding on Arijit’s affecting singing. Akhil Sachdeva’s—Nasha Band’s vocalist making his Bollywood debut—Humsafar is a passable Pakistani-pop knockoff. Tanishk Bagchi closes the soundtrack with 2 appropriations. Uncredited: The title song, from Shankar Jaikishan’s iconic Teesri Kasam number Chalat musafir*! Adequately lively! Credited: Bappi Lahiri’s Mory Kante lift, Tamma tamma! Superbly kitschy, pulsating and inventive remix that retains the original voices for fantastic effect, barring Badshah’s annoying rap! Jolly good Badri!

* …which was based on a folk number too, incidentally. That, however, shouldn’t stop any composer from calling the source as ‘Folk’ and call the composition as a recreation.

    Decent soundtrack, but, man, I’m getting tired of both uncredited remakes (the title track) and remakes that just take the original and add a Baadshah verse on top — although, credit that the original vocals are used for Tamma Tamma.

      Badshah rap is painful, I agree. And using original voices was such a good idea in case of Tamma tamma!
