Sajid-Wajid’s recreation of Bappi Lahiri’s super-hit, super-kitschy 80s originals – Naino mein and Taki taki – use the source material well, resulting in fairly entertaining versions in a fresh, new-kitschy way! It’s when the duo is entrusted with creating new material that they flounder – Dhoka is plain horrendous, while for the moronic Bum pe […]

Dabangg 2 (Music review), Hindi – Sajid Wajid

Dagabaz re, that post-marriage addendum to Tere mast mast do nain, uses vastly similar tricks, to impress, again. PandeyJi Seeti seems to be constructed especially for Salman’s hip movement… and occasionally ours too. After using Zandu Balm in the earlier film, it’s Fevicol’s time in Fevicol se, but the tune is so embarrassingly 80s. Saanson […]

The title song is peculiarly addictive – must be that chant-like backgrounds and repetition. Rani tu mera raja and Po po aren’t that lucky -mind-bogglingly templatized and bland. Tu kamaal di kudi is strictly no different, but Vineet Singh’s vocals do make a difference, while Himesh’s best in the soundtrack is the pleasantly semi-classical Bichdann […]

Boom boom boom must be the nth version of Sajid Wajid’s Soni de nakhre from Partner – refuses to work after so many reworks. Tu is straight out of a badly recorded, oddly sung first-time Indi-pop singer’s album of the early 90s – strange song to hand over to the usually dependable Mohit Chauhan. Sun […]

Ishkq in Paris (Music review), Hindi – Sajid Wajid

Saiyaan is painfully boring – when will Rahat Fateh Ali Khan get out of this mode? Jaane bhi de, thankfully, is a massive improvement over the average Sajid-Wajid material – zingy guitar and keyboard backed melody. And Teri choodiyan da, despite the massive ennui, is energetically arranged to get your attention! Kudiye di kurti sounds […]

Sajid-Wajid’s lone track Mashallah is every note stereotyped Middle Eastern generic music; stunningly bland. Not to be left behind, Sohail Sen opens his account with the heavily Latino-stereotyped Laapata which just has its breezy sound going for it amidst a painfully stale tune. Banjaara starts out well enough, with the predominant Yuvan Shankar Raja’ish Celtic […]

Wajid does a surprisingly good job in singing the bubbly Mukhtasar that, for some inexplicable reason, sounds a lot like London Paris New York’s title song! Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s Allah jaane is predictable, but is wonderfully serene and pleasant! Jabse mere dil ko‘s guitar and retro outlook is very appealing, as is Sonu and […]

Chinta ta ta shamelessly – and without any credit – rips off MM Kreem’s Telugu original from the film’s original, Vikramarkudu. If it sounds catchy, don’t credit Sajid Wajid for it. Dhadhang dhang and Chammak challo bring back the pointless 90s masala music we had gladly gotten over, while Aa re mauls the catchy cue […]

Despite explicitly aping Yolanda Be Cool and DCUP’s We No Speak Americano, Papa toh band bajaye is a rollicking track with utterly corny and funny lyrics, superbly sung by Neeraj Shridhar! Anarkali disco chali too is fun listen – a brisk, catchy and oomphy item song in Mamta Sharma’s punchy vocals. Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal’s […]

Haan yahi pyaar hai overdoses on cliched lyrics (can the government declare ‘Dheere dheere haule haule’ as an illegal phrase), but has a charming ring to it. Wake up now sounds like poor man’s Vishal Shekhar; all sound with no zing, while Mahi mahi is massively cringe-worthy Punjabi template. Daler and Mamta Sharma’s Katto gilehri […]
