Music: Himesh Reshammiya, Ajay-Atul
Lyrics: Swanand Kirkire,
Shabbir Ahmed, Sajid, Farhad:
Rohit Shetty’s films arecomic capers, mostlyremembered for their slick action pieces involvingflying cars! Though musichas played second fiddle tofight sequences in his films,there has always been that oneodd song that’s found popularity – Tere sang (Zameen), Golmaal title track and Saathiya (Singham) are examples. Shetty’sdebut film Zameen featured HimeshReshammiya as music director and theteam returns after nearly a decade in BolBachchan.
The novelty of the title track Bol bachchan lies in the fact that Big B, Ajay Devgn and Junior B have lent their voices to it. The lyrics are ridiculous, and though one may dismiss the track after the first hearing, there is no denying thesong is super addictive. The catchy tune grows on you! And it’s always a pleasureto listen to Mr B mouth inane English lyrics. Fun stuff!
Drawing inspiration from Bholi surat dilke khote (Albela) and folk tunes from thecow belt, Reshmmiya creates the lively Chalao na naino se (Himesh Reshammiya,Shreya Ghoshal). Shabbir Ahmed’s quirky lyrics up the fun quotient of this desi track, a great deal. Ghoshal puts in a briefappearance in this playfulromantic number andsounds gorgeous.
Jab se dekhi hain (Mohit Chauhan) is thequintessential Reshammiya ballad. He uses instrumentslike the sarangi and tabla to accentuatethe strong melody and thankfully picks Chauhanto render this serene,soulful number.
Finally,guest composers Ajay-Atul recreate their feist ychartbuster Baygo baygo (from Marathi film Ringa Ringa, 2010 )as Nach le nach le! This colorful, festivesong is a riotous mix of Spanish and dhol sounds. Sukhwinder Singh and Shreya Ghoshal infuse the right dose of energy in their rendition. Fun till it lasts.
