Lyrics: Sameer, Faiz Anwar
Dhadhang dhang(Wajid, Shreya Ghoshal) is a tacky number, straight out of a Govinda film from the ‘90s. In fact, the track seems like an extension of O lal dupatte wali (Aankhen). The composers wrap Sameer’s cheesy lyrics (strongly yeh tera jaado mujhpe chal gaya) arounda clichéd drum bed to create a loud, tapori number. The only thing going for this track is Ghoshal’s sparkling voice.
The hook line of Chinta ta ta chita (Mika, Wajid) is immensely catchy, but then the song is a straight lift of College papala bassu from the original Telugu film Vikramarkudu. Mika Singh’s boisterous rendition gives the additional zing to this playful number. And then there’s Akshay Kumar’s on-screen antics to add to the fun appeal of this track.
Aa re pritam pyaare (Mamta Sharma, Sarosh Sami) is a jazzed-up version of Tamil song Vaadi vaadi (Alli ThandaVaanam 2001). Lewd lyrics, noisy drums and shehanayis and Mamta Sharma’s screaming vocals will ensure this item number finds it 15 minutes of fame.
Even Kumar Sanu’s cameo in Chamak challo chel chabeli (Shreya Ghoshal, Kumar Sanu) doesn’t salvage this crashing bore. The romantic duet Tera ishqbada teekha appeals a little, probably becauseit is less noisy than the other songs in this album. The lyrics, however, are cringe-worthy.Chandaniya (ShreyaGhoshal) is a lori like any other. Rowdy mix(Akshay Kumar, Sarosh Sami) is a damp squib.
Verdict: Kitsch gone wrong
