Mukkabaaz (Music review), Hindi – Rachita Arora, Nucleya and Vineet Kumar Singh

Posted by Karthik

Paintra is as combative as the sport the film portrays. Nucleya’s vibrant music fuses pan-Indian kuthu sounds effectively to let Divine deliver a grungy song. Mushkil hai apna is a triumph of Dr.Sunil Jog’s lyrics! His verse, with hilarious lines like, ‘Tum diwali ki bonus ho, main bhookon ki hartaal’ comes alive with phenomenal humor and colloquial wordplay, even as Brijesh Shandilya’s delightful delivery is top-notch. Rachita Arora brings all these together in a funky package. Vijay Arora’s handling of Chhipkali is equally spirited—superb lines by Hussain Haidry—and this time, Rachita’s tune is Gulaal-style retro. Bahut hua samman opens on an ambient note, but Rachita transforms it into an entertaining protest song, with Swaroop Khan leading the charge. Rachita’s best is the Puriya Dhanashri-based Bohot dukha mann! The raaga carries the sensuous melody beautifully while Rachita sings it incredibly, along with Dev Arijit. Khushbu Raaj’s earthy and playful singing and Rachita’s background guitars lift Sade teen baje significantly from its folk origin, while Vineet Kumar Singh’s lone composition (his lyrics too) in Adhura mann is a wonderfully sparse folk melody brilliantly sung by Deepak Thakur of Gang’s of Wasseypur fame. Anurag’s stellar musical run continues, this time with Rachita Arora!
