Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani (Music review), Hindi – Pritam

Badtameez dil is heady and addictive; Benny rocks with his vocals! Balam pichkari too… foot-tapping holi song with superb singing by Vishal and Shalmali. Ilahi’s guitar-driven sound and children’s chorus is endearing; so are the two versions by Arijit and Mohit, but the tune is oddly unmoving. Ditto with Kabira; two versions and four singers, but too regurgitated a tune. Kumaar’s lyrics stand out in the otherwise formulaic Dilliwaali girlfriend, while Ghagra gets no such support in any department – trite recycle all round.  Sreeram’s sweeping vocals save the strictly templatized Subhanallah. Yeh Jawaani hai bas do din ki deewani.
