Aiyyaa

Dreamum wakeupum (Soumya Raoh) is an exaggerated take on the kuthu songs from Tamil films. Trivedi’s spoofy tribute to South Indian street dance songs is a delicious riot. Bhattacharya’s nonsensical lyrics and Soumya Raoh’s faultless rendition make this wacky song immensely enjoyable. Sava dollar is a fairly conventional lavani redeemed by Sunidhi Chauhan’s energetic singing and a lively chorus. A young girl’s ambition to make it big in Bollywood is captured well by Bhattacharya.

Trivedi goes techno fusion with Aga bai (Shalmali Kholgade, Monali Thakur). This furiously fast-paced track starts off with a long prelude before the auto-tuned voice of Thakur kicks in. With splashes of classical music thrown in, Aga bai is an energetic number that’s a sure-shot chartbuster! The shehnai is the star of Mahek bhi. Trivedi masterfully blends the lilting tunes of the wind instrument with Shreya Ghoshal’s soothing vocals to compose a soft, dreamy number. What to do (Sneha Khanvilkar, Amitabh Bhattacharya) is a situational comic track with double entendre lyrics and suggestive singing. The re-use of the legendary line from a papad ad adds strongly to the comic quotient of this number.

Wakda is the traditional South Indian wedding song with a Maharashtrian twist. Trivedi uses a host of Carnatic music instruments like the nadaswaram, mridangama, ghatam and the brass band towards the end to create a comic, spirited number. He also gets behind the mic and renders this track in style.The soundtrack of Aiyyaa may be over the top but it is definitely entertaining.

Verdict: Crazy fun!
