~::~ Lafangey Parindey ~::~

The recent spate of albums that have been released OUATIM, Aisha have all been wonderful listens and adding another feather to the list is Lafangey Parindey.. I wondered why the music had a pop-py feeling to it and that’s when I saw that Music is by R.Anandh of Agosh fame.. Remember the “mujhe mil jo jaaye thoda paisa” yes yes same piece 😀 I loved most of the songs.. I can heardly put one as MISSABLE.. and with Mohit and Shilpa giving us lovely songs.. I can hardly stop listening to it 😀

Overall rating comes to lilke 3.5/5.. aahaa I knw I liked it so much and yet only 3.5 well there cud have been better songs too  right 😀 cos theres always room for improvement.. but for a debut music director this is brilliant work 😀

~

Lafangey Parindey Ronit Sarkar ~ the music starts like a rock song.. and has u hooked on the moment it starts.. Singer was aptly chosen and does complete justice to the song.. it’s a perfect for those looonggg drives…loved the lyrics – nass nass mein sheher ki banke lahoo ye daude..jis taraf ho marzi raah ko apni mode…chavi tho nahi hai milti kismet ke taale tode.. raftaaro ke ye aashiq khule hai saare ghode.. firte hai aazaad mast har mushkil ko karte hai bas rozana maut se lapak jhapak khatro se khelna  inki sazaa.. kabhi saaf kabhi ye gandhe lafangey parindey… Dhinchakkkk.. the chorus of dhingnananana is very cute and catchy 😀 over all loved the song.. definitely recommended CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Mann lafanga Mohit Chauhan ~ do u need a reason to love this song when it has mohit as the singer 🙄 the music is swaying and smooth.. And obviously Mohit delivers yet again.. and the song is mindblowing.. I hear ample use of guitar in this very simple music not much orchestration but very soothing and enjoyable.. The lyrics are cute and catchy too..  Mann lafanga bada apne mann ki kare..yu tho mera hi hai mujse bhi na dare…main sambhal ja kahun phisalta rahe..ishq mehenga pade yuhi sauda kare..The goan effect in the middle is really nice 😀 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Rang Daalein –  Suraj jagan – thanks to 3idiots Suraj jagan seems to be everywhere in bollywood.. not that I am complaining cos I liked this song a lot.. but not so much to get so addicted to it.. Suraj as usual delivers with panache and the song is indeed nice to hear.. has the grey shade effect.. u knw the typical villain entry kinda music.. I wonder why all songs in this movie has the word lafanga/lafange I knw that’s the movie name but 3 songs so far and all 3 having the word is a tad too much… 😛 The bagpiper-ish music between the paras was really endearing.. the lyrics are ok not much..Some lines stand out like – waqt ke paao do hai paiye lage hai wo aagey aagey jaise koi  peeche peeche sepaiye hai lagey.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Dhatad Thatad Shail Hada Anushka Manchanda – love the song the moment it starts.. it has the perfect rapchik raanti effect to it.. The music somewhere down the line seems to have some Bengali influence in it and I wonder why and how..?? I don’t care why they used the words dhatad thatad, its significance or wat it means but I can tell u this much I am loving this.. its completely catchy and danceable.. the moment it starts I am busy shaking and nodding my head to the tune.. 😀 The use of the famous kishore kumar line – jamkepakad cheerbhichakar is the sone pe suhaaga 😀 towards the end though I wonder why it reminded me of the typical tamil kuthu songs – the O Podu et al… the lyrics are peppy more like the why fear and worry jus get out and enjoy life types.. 😀 my fav line wud be – sunle shor chunchunke shor bhi ek manzar hai.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Mann lafanga (remix)–  Mohit Chauhan – u like the original u love the remix.. well that’s me… 😀 So without much ado about the song cos I am already gaga over it this one’s CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Nain ParindeyShilpa rao – everytime I hear this song and everytime I hear shilpa’s voice I love this song even more.. it’s a nice  soothing lilting number.. u really feel as if ur flying jus the way she sings it.. palakh jhatakke ud jaayenge..  brilliant piece J the music is so gentle and comforting.. the imagery created with the lyrics is mindblowing.. and with Shilpa crooning it’s a superfantabulous song J CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Born to Fly theme – after a long time I have actually heard a theme song that’s beautiful… it comprises mostly of all the songs in the movie.. and they have been awesome blended together 🙂 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE.

~

Overall the album is definitely worth a listen.. some songs obviously stand out and i would pick Mann Lafanga, Dhatad Thatad and Nain Parindey… and maybe add up Lafangey parinde to the list too..

So I give it a 3.5/5 rating 😀

Do listen to these songs and m sure ur gonna love them 😀

That’s it from Megzone for now..

~::~ Cute Aisha ~::~

Well … Saw the promos when I went to watch I Hate Luv Storys and I somehow felt it was a remake of some English/Spanish movie not sure though..Later Wikipedia revealed its based on Emma by Jane Austen.. The song that accompanied it – Suno Aisha… Did strike me interesting and had made me wait and make sure I get my hands on the album.. And I must say I am Not Disappointed.. 2-3 songs are really worth the whole album.. The music director Amit Trivedi seems to have taken the B-wood by storm now.. Most of his latest songs have been well received.. Though a couple of songs at some places sounded evocative to english songs but since I am not able to point my finger on the exact song I cant say they are lifts/remakes or anything.. But songs like Suno Aisha, Sham, Behke Behke and Lehrein are awesome numbers the last being the most soulful one with ample usage of Violin.. Singer Anushka has had a ball of a time cos she has got some lovely songs.. But somehow I would like to hear a melody or ballad from her than the usual perky numbers.. Anusha Mani I guess bein introduced in this cos I haven’t heard her before has done a beautiful job with Lehrein and Amit Trivedi himself does complete justice to the title track.. Overall it’s a lovely Album.. I give it a 3/5.. not being liberal.. But I just feel there cant be more to it 🙂

~~~~~~~

Behke behkeAnushka Manchanda – Starts with a peppy LATINO influence.. and yes the moment it starts im already tapping my foot and nodding/shaking  my head..Anushka suits this song to the T. I don’t know if its just me but somehow in some places the song reminded me of Main Albeli from Zubaida.. either its true or my ears are ringing.. but the song is definitely something that can keep you engrossed.. I see a lil  bit of flamenco effect in the song.. the lyrics are good.. the lines – Behke behke mann keep running in my mind inspite of the song finishes. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

By the way Anushka Manchanda – This ones again a nice peppy number.. in some areas it reminded me of 10 on 10 from Pyar Impossible.. err.. maybe cos both were sung by Anushka but nonetheless I liked this one.. I like the places where she says Jaane Do Chodo Bhi.. The ample use of guitar enhances the effect of the song… The lyrics depict of just live life don’t think…this ones not much of a dance number but definitely recommended for the party and karaoke nights..Cos I love the beats and the claps that come in.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Gal Mitthi MitthiiTochi Raina – ok now I am not much impressed with this on hearing it 2-3 times.. but sometimes there are songs where the videos make them likeable.. For people who like Punju songs they are sure to like this one.. No I aint against punju songs but somehow ye kuch raas nai aaya.. L so for me its nothing great.. but somehow I feel when I see the song I might start liking.. and yes this might jus go on to become the next marriage song.. well its not about marriage but the mere punju effect is sure to make ppl  dance to it.. frankly this don’t impress me much.. CERTIFIED MISSABLE..

Lehrein ~ Anusha Mani, Neuman Pinto, Nikhil Dsouza – I just loved this one.. starts with Violin and that has me mesmerized already.. Completely Awesomee….the song jus flows and makes u sway too..  Generally the violin usage in a song depicts grief but this song seems more abt solitude/loneliness  but doesnt take u into any depressive mode.. you are sure gonan love this one 😀 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Sham ~ Nikhil Dsouza, Amit Trivedi Neuman Pinto – This one in someways reminds me of an English ong but I am not able to place my finger on it.. minimalist music and the guitar usage has me swaying and flowing.. Sometimes reminds me of the LIMCA ad song..Perfect for a nice rainy evening with a hot cup of tea watchin the droplets hit the glass pane.. or else perfect for a night.. clear sky.. moonlight penetrating throw the windows and ur snuggled tight in bed 😀 and stars peeping out silently..Blisss…!!! CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Suno Aisha ~ Amit Trivedi – I like this one.. it’s a very cute song.. Amit’s voice melts like icecream.. Yes ye s ice-cream indeed.. Foot tapping music.. me the likes me the likes.. This ones already making rounds on TV and many have already expressed their liking for this one.. Theres one small Flute bit in the middle that really makes it cute.. This again I don’t know why  I feel is reminiscent of a song I have heard before.. Either cos the name Aisha sounds similar to Alisha in Pyar Impossible I don’t know but I do feel I have heard the tune before.. but nonetheless I love it 😀 and hence CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Lehrein RemixDJ Lloyd and Discreet – I love this one too.. Though it’s a remix its one of those versions that are perfect for those lonnggg drives/travel on a rainy day..  I loved the original and I love this one too J CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Gal Mithi Mithi ~ Tochi Raina – another remix another version.. Dint like the original not yet..not till I watch the video and give it another consideration and so as of now CERTIFIED MISSABLE..
Overall I give it a 3/5.. not very impressive but definitely not the missable types.. you definitely can listen to Behke Behke, Lehrein and Suno Aisha.. Sham is good too but not too striking initially but the more u listen to it.. the more you fall in love with it.. So that’s for AISHA a 3/5..

Once Upon A Time In Mumbaaii..

Ok I am indeed aware that I am indeed super-late for the review.. But with tooooo many things on my hands this was bound to happen 😀

But heyyy I aint complaining cos I like it when I have my hand full..

Anyways back to the review..

When you know it an Emran Hashmi movie you know for sure that the songs are gonna be good simply cos that bugger is somehow lucky with songs.. And all his movies till date have had at least one superdupersplendiferous song.. 😀

When you see names of singers like Mohit Chauhan, Raahat Fateh Ali Khan, Karthik and KK you are sure the album promises to be something 🙂  But when u see the music director name as PRITAM.. You are 😯

Cos u don’t know if the authenticity of the music can be trusted or no.. 🙄

But nonetheless the positives (emran, mohit, rahat, KK, karthik) over shadow the big villain pritam and OUATIM delivers the best  of sufiyaana music that can be cherished for quite some time..

I am sure if I am to listen the album after a couple of years I am still gonna love them… Highlights of the album would be Mohit’s Pee Loon which has already become everyone’s favorite, Raahat bhai’s Tum jo Aa gaye , KK and karthik’s I am in love 😀

There’s also a Mika song thrown in a typical bhaigiri types 😛 Baburao mast hai.. Well I must say though this might be one of the lesser priorities in this album but trust me the song is cute.. 😀

And there’s also a 70-80s style cabaret number reworked on thePiya Tu Ab Tho aaja and duniya mein logon ko” that’s a good listen too 😀

Overall a good Album- 7/9 songs are good 🙂 So definitely CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

ATLEAST the songs by Raahat, Mohit , KK and Karthik.. If not the remix/reprise version the originals at least are more than enough to make it a definite listen

I rate it a 4/5

Can’t help it guys I have all my favorite singers there.. 😀

Pee loon ~ Mohit Chauhan – just one word to describe this song – AWESOME.. The moment the aalaap starts you are swayed completely.. All I feel like doing is close my eyes and let the song flow over me.. It’s simply THE BEST song in the album.. The Sufiyaana effect is simply mindblasting.. Mohit excels once again.. The lyrics are definitely noteworthy.. The chorus lines are catchy and tend to stay in Ur mind eons after the song is over.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Tum Jo Aaye ~ Tulsi Kumar, Rahat Fateh Ali Khan – it opens in a typical qawwali-ish lines.. Tulsi Kumar has indeed improved a lot on her singing.. She doesn’t sound too shrill like she used too.. Infact at some places I found her reminiscent to Chitra… Rahat bhai as usual excels and we have a winner song once again.. Albeit I prefer the Reprise version more cos that’s a solo 😉 Sowweee Tulsi can’t help it M a Rahat fan 😀 the lyrics are good a tad clichéd but nice.. The places where Rahat bhai does his swarams are beautiful cos he reminded me so much of Nusrat ji.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE only cos this is not solo 😉

Babu Rao ~ Mika – If you have liked tapori songs of Munnabhai and Shootout at Lokhandwala you are sure to like this… If you don’t mind Mika then you can like the song.. Cos frankly I did like it.. I wouldn’t say I loved it but yes it’s definitely listenable.. For those moments when you just want to dance Ur blues away and feel the need to add some spunk to your usual music you surely need this one..The lyrics are typical complete with the mumbaiyya slang.. liberal use of English too like adjust” “word” “system etc etc.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

I Am In Love ~ KK & Dominique –  KK strikes back.. He has been one singer I have always liked since he gave us Tadap Tadapke (Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam).. And I end up liking 99% of his songs and yes definitely I like this one too.. Albeit I would say that Karthik’s version is definitely one up on this… But with KK you just can’t ignore him.. The lyrics are the same so I save it for the Karthik version 😉 as for this one CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN..

Pee Loon(Remix)Mohit – if you liked the original you are sure to like this J Yes indeed, just a bit fast paced but overall the song is simply out of the world.. There was a day when the moment I laid my hands on this album I was just hooked on to this song and kept playing it again n again.. It’s definitely addictive… Though I am generally against remix but this one doesn’t sound like one in spite of claiming that it is a remix.. So for me this one’s CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN.

I Am In Love ~ Karthik – for the first time when I heard this I dint realize it was Karthik singing albeit I did feel the voice very very familiar.. and then came this place where he sings in complete base and that’s when it hit me “is that Karthik” and yes I checked it then and I was dumbstruck this was indeed Karthik and the best part I love is that not one ounce of accent or anything for that matter… A simply marvelous song… not much of a Sufi effect but definitely a lovely song.. the lyrics are really sweet, minimalist esp the second Para which goes like – badal par chalta hoon main,girke sambhalta hoon main, khwahishe karta hoon main khone se darta hoon main, jaaga na soya hoon main , musafir khoya hoon main, kuch sarphira sa hoon main buddhu zara sa hoon main, dil kyaa karein tere bina itna bas mujhe pat ahai,.. I am in love.. Aaahhh.. I reveled in this song completely.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN..

Parda ~ sunidhi Chauhan, Rana Mazumdar – this is the perfect Cabaret effect from the 70s and 80s.. A rehash of RDB’s Piya Tu Ab Tho Aaja and Duniya mein Logon ko .. No it’s not the remix or anything.. It’s completely redone or rather it would be more appropriate to say that they have actually incorporated some parts of the RDB song to this one.. Perfect with the RDB effect this is definitely a good song.. I wouldn’t commit and say that its one of those dance numbers I would pick up to dance but then I definitely can’t ignore it too.. It’s an ok song.. Sunidhi has definitely sung it to the best.. But I somehow only wish if they had brought in Asha Tai to sing this that would be a Sone pe suhaaga 😀 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Tum Jo Aaye (reprise) ~ Raahat Fateh Ali Khan – What do I say now..?? COMPLETE BLISS..!!!! With Raahat bhai crooning, his breathtaking aalaps, swaras,..Uff by God.. I’m addicted.. 😀  Comparatively minimalist on the music front, and sigh..!! I don’t have words to describe this one.. Simply no words.. Cos its Raahat bhai I don’t need any further reasons to fall in love with this song.. Lemme concentrate on the lyrics in this one 🙂 The lyrics are simply beautiful , picture this – Ishq mazhab ishq meri zaat ban gayi.. Sapne Teri chahto ke dekhta hoon ab kayi..Din hai sona aur chandi raat ban gayi.. Mindblasting..!! The sheer use of Urdu makes me love it even more.. Aisa main saudaayi huaa dhadkane bhi apni tho lagti hai Teri ahaate maangi  Na khudaayi Maine maanga naa rawaan bhi maangli Teri chahte..Khwahhishe Milne ki tumse roz hoti hai nayi mere dil ki jeet meri maat ban gayi.. I’m ghayal completely.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

I Am In Love (Dance Mix) Dominique & KK – now I wonder why they had to come out with a 3rd version of this song 🙄 no I mean seriously c’mon we already have a KK and Karthik version why another Dance version.. Sigh..!! This one’s CERTIFIED MISSABLE

Overall the album is good for those 4-5 songs and hence 4/5 cos Raahat Bhai Mohit and Karthik (exactly in that order) are more than enough to keep me mesmerized with this one 😀

So guy’s u must definitely listen to those MUST LISTENS mentioned out there.. And yes I’m definitely looking forward to this movie 😀

That’s it from Megzone for now..!!

Raavan…!!

Raavan

Trademark of ARR written all over it… Any movie by mani Ratnam has expectations.. with ARR as the music director the expectations are high… and like all ARR-MR combinations this one’s a run-away hit too..

But yes like all ARR albums except maybe JTYJN the music takes time to grow on you… but once it does… like all his tunes.. they stick to you like glue 😀

Album gets an overall 4/5.. why.. cos songs are less 😛

Wen its ARR we want more.. we wanntt more… 😀

Beera and Ranjha ranjha rules with behne de following 🙂

If you haven’t yet got the album… what on earth are you waiting for… Christmas…?? 🙄

CERTIFIED MUST BUY 😀

Okkkeee…. Now for the detailed review 🙂

~~

Beera Vijay Prakash, Mustafa Kutoane, Keerthi Sagathia~~Foot tapping music, a song that’s completely dedicated to the raavan, his description, nature etc.. Catchy music though in one place it reminded me of “dholi taro dholbaaje from  Hum Dil De Chuke Sanam.. But this one song is surely very very addictive..you end up humming beera beera even after the song is over 🙂 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Behne de Karthik, Mohamad Irfan ~~one of the lovely melodious numbers I this album. Signature ARR style music. Sudden increase/decrease in pace and pitch… One of those perfect songs for a loong drive espeiceially on a rainy evening 🙂  CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Thok di khilliSukhvinder Singh, Am’nico –  the way it started reminded me of badal from yuva.. but then all said n done this song has its own charm. Sukhwinder in his typical style. Nice song.. In some places reminded me of Ye jo des hai tera from Swades.. but then loved it 🙂  CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Ranjha Ranjha Rekha bhardwaj, Javed Ali, Anuradha Sriram – the immediate start reminded me of Mayya Mayya from Guru..slowly it gathered pace into western music.. but when the song starts you know you have a winner.. the only duet in the album.. Javed Ali at his usual self.. but Rekha bhardwaj steals the show completely…Her voice is a complete delight to hear.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN..

Kheli re khili rereena bhardwaj~~ it’s a romantic track busat sorry to say that don’t impress me much…Maybe I need a coupla rounds more of listening to this one.. its not bad.. but not too impressive to me atleast.. so its jus CERTIFIED LISTENABLE..

Kata kataIla Arun, Sapna Awasthi Kunal Ganjawala ~~ this is like the theme song and the most advertised in the trailer… Awesome music.. the folksy effect very apt only in some places reminded me of Lagaan in some places… but this is definitely not a bad number J not very catchy not sumthin that you can get addicted to.. but its definitely a good one.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

~~~~~

Overall, verdict is CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN indeed.. only I wish there was a tad more variety.. the whole album has the folklore feel to it.. I agree with a movie like Raavan wat more can you expect but haven’t ARR and MR known to create magic…??? Not that the magic is missing.. but somehow I feel there was room for more improvement.. if ARR cud have definitely given a tad more diversity in the tunes and songs 🙂

But nonetheless ARR IS ARR no one can beat him 😛

Looking forward to more music from him 😀

Thats it from Megzone for now..!!

PS:  have received some awards from JINGLE have posted the same at https://megzone.wordpress.com/deluge-of-awards/

Very Badmash but not Badly Mashed..!!

Awrighty insane title I know… but that’s how I felt when I came outta the theatre watching my darling Shahid in action… Aawww… he’s such a such.. I mean such an uber-sexilicious avatar… looking hot and cute and sweet… and yes acted bloody brilliant too…

It’s an all in all fundooo movies… perfect PAISA VASOOL types… I remember back to back 3-4 Bloggers watching it over this weekend and updating their Facebook status with the movie info 😀

And I must say the responses were the same… “awesome” “Fultoo” “fundoo” “dhinchakk” (errr…the last one was me indeed 😳 )

Wattay movie… Aawww maann… simply fantastic… and for a first time director definitelya it’s a well thought well planned movie… the storyline though a tad clichéd but the treatment is the director’s touch and I have to give it to Parmeet Sethi for coming with a complete commercial masala entertainer…

The acting…

Anushka – a super waste non-required part of the movie… acting wise she’s ok… in some places she sounds like an over-chirpy version of Kajol (kabhi khushi kabhi gham).

The so called electric chemistry and err… whatever… was completely null… infact it looked so fake and put on… As Sree said in his FB status she looks like Shahid’s elder sister… (Thanks Oi laalten 😀 u made my day with that 😉 )

Her effort in trying to look sexy and voluptuous was to no avail… her face of a 30yr old and body of an 18yr old made her look ghastly on screen.. She’s not made for these kinda roles

Vir das – very good acting… Infact in some places he stole the show from Shahid too.

Meiyang Chang – now he was a shocker… new he sang well… even rooted for him on Indian Idol… never knew he could act pretty well too… and the chini-indi fight between him and Vir das sometimes was really cute..

Shahid – superb… fun, suave, debonair errr sexy too 😛

This was an all out Shahid movie… his perfect place to display his histrionics from bubbly chirpy to crying even when he cries he looks cute 😀 the scenes where the success gets into his head.. The confrontation with his dad in the start and the end… too good…

After JWM and Kaminey this has to be his best performance…

The dialogues…

Oh maann… some dialogues were really awesome and they stand out…

Ok I don’t wanna give out spoilers though my devilish mind wants me too but im sorry couldn’t help it…

*Spoiler Alert*

Anushka’s dialogue on “YE BAAT NAI KARTE” ROFL-icious 😆

Shahid’s – “mere mehnat se Meri Company ya boss ko fayeda nai hona chahiye, mujhe hona chahiye” – super punch..

Vir  –  “ Oi chini bevde” the most used line in the movie but the line that stood out was the answer he gives Shahid before the split and the one he gives to make up “Linda ko main sambhaal loonga”

Chang –  loved the end dialogue “yaar boriyat ho gayi hai ab karte hai”

The Bleeding madras and MJ twist was simply superb…

*END OF SPOILERS*

Overall loved the movie.. The songs are apt in tandem with the movie.. You can read my music review of Badmash Company here. Sadly the title song comes only at the end while running the credits. Jingle Jingle and Fakeera rock completely.. the theme and positioning of Fakeera was apt.

It’s definitely a CERTIFIED MUST WATCH movie.. I give it a good 3.5-4/5 rating.. and for those who were tortured with the recent offerings of Phoonk and Housefull you can def make it a 4.5/5 😉

Do watch it guys.. This Badmash is definitely not to be missed…. 😀

Badmash Company ~ NOT Bad(ly)mash(ed) indeed..!!

OK chuck the title…. I was just trying to add some zing…

and yes i knw im super duper late with the movie completely geared up to release…

Well well after hrithik how can I leave my Shahid out…. 😉

Haan… temme temme…

And now that the movie is up for release and my Shahid loooookkkks uber-sexilicious 🙂

The promos look promising.. What with Shahid and his various make-ups and gigs..

Errrmmm… ok lemme get back to the music review of the movie… this review specially dedicated to Shammeer bhai who has been continuously reminding me about it 🙂

Well Badmash Company makes up for a Timepass listen..

As the name suggests the songs only complement the title of the movie by lots of breezy funky fast paced numbers..

Special mention of Raahat Fateh Ali Khan’s rendition Fakeera – which is an awesomefreakinglicious number… chaska and ayashi as the names suggest are complete fundooo numbers.. For serious music lovers I think Fakeera would be the only treat.. The title song – Badmash Company is equally a merry number..The starting sounds reminiscent of some english song… then there is Jingle Jingle for the Mohit Chauhan Fans… yes yes the song seems to a masakali kinda number but yes def not anywhere near Masakali.. But definitely a good listen… Over all not bad at all..

CERTIFIED LISTENABLErating 3/5

Now for a detailed review:

~~~~~

Ayashi KK – if there was one funky attitude-ey song for someone who is completely bindaas and fun.. It has to by this song… the music and the lyrics simply complement each other.. Ofcourse a perfect song for the wannabes and those who want to add some oomph attitude to them… and yes I loved it completely simply cos of it foot-tapping, head nodding music and catchy lyrics… so this one’s a CERTIFIED LISTENABLE..

Fakeera Raahat Fateh Ali Khaan – the moment the song starts you know that it has something to offer to you.. Yes indeed.. And with Raahat bhai singing.. This one is THE BEST in the album.. And the lyrics almost philosophical and yes this is one of those songs that has you hooked to it the moment you listen to it.. Though the music is in tandem with the mood of the movie/other songs.. Arthaarth (meaning) a bit fast paced with ample usage of guitar.. To hear Raahat bhai is a complete treat to the ears.. Albeit the peppiness in the song.. Raahat’s crooning adds the much needed zing… Im sure anyone who listens to this is gonna be hung-ho about it for sure.. The liberal usage of aalaps and taranas makes it most-definitely-has-to-be CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Chaska krishna and Uri – its one fundooo song.. Completely catchy.. I mean wat else can you expect with a title like CHASKA.. It is obviously a fun dhinchaak dikchik number…..the music is yes indeed cute to listen.. The music brings in the complete fun and frolic mood to the song.. With a slight classical and use of Indian-ness base to it.. Makes it a good listen.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Badmaash Companybenny dayal MG Sreekumar –  well the starting itself gives the song an eeriness equivalent to those typical mafia/gangsta kinda feel to it. The lyrics and the opening lines also add to the typical effect ala Smooth Criminal/Dhantenan types… where the music decides and creates the mood of the songs.. The lyrics interspersed with words like ae saale lafange.. Dedh-shaane.. Etc these kinda uplifts the whole Badmash effect to the song 😉 so to me this is definitely CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Jingle Jingle Mohit Chauhan Devi Sri Prasad – this is one helluva cute number.. It will grow on u slowly.. And for the loyal Mohit Chauhan fans yes pretty much a treat… Pritam has tried to re-create a masakali/Ibn e batuta effect.. But hasn’t managed to pull it off that well.. But that does not mean that the song falls flat on its nose.. Nopes.. It still makes up to be worth listening thanks to Mohit and his twang-ish voice.. The lyrics is a complete HINGLISH.. Well most songs in this movie are HINGLISH adding a bit of rap here n there.. So this one’s a super listen too… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Ayashi remixKK – if the original was fast this is faster… and yes if that was head nodding at the speed of one nod per 3seconds.. This is one nod per second… sounds funny naa.. But trust me it is indeed so..

It’s a fun number.. But somehow in comparison of the original this is slightly better.. But the one thing that has me bamboozled is why KK pronounces it as “AYASEE” instead of “AYASHI” 🙄 wonder why.. Nonetheless definitely CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Chaska remixKrishna – like the previous remix this one also is one of those pub-ly dance numbers.. The kind of groovy songs that would have the crowds moving on the dance floor.. And for the listeners…. Only more head nodding and foot tapping both proportional to pace of the song… In some places though the singer reminds me of HIMESH Reshammiya… wonder why… 🙄 esp wen he dint sound so in the original.. Music mein gadbad kar di kyaa.. 😕 Overall a good listen.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE..

~~~~~~

So overall the album makes up for a good listen… when you are travelling and reading a book and jus need some background music..But not the kind of songs which would make u sit and listen to the songs.. But rather those that don’t disturb your reading speed or bother you in anyway but jus provide the background noise in the form of music.. This album is IT.. Cos except for FAKEERA and maybe JINGLE JINGLE you wouldn’t notice wen the other songs pass by.. all you would be doing is nodding your head and reading.. J

So if you’re a self confessed book-o-holic plus music-o-maniac like me who can’t do away with either esp while travelling.. And if you manage to get a very interesting book which seeks complete undivided attention and u cant not listen to music but don’t want the songs to disturb you…. This is the Album for you.. You can simply play it on and nod your head to the beats and give your darling book the much needed exclusive attention it requires.. 😛

That’s it from Megzone for now..!!

Kites ~ High F(ly)ive

After Prince if there was one album that has captured me out rightly.. It has to be Kites..

No Nopes not cos it’s a Hrithik movie (Hayeee… hrithik!!!! 🙂 ) but the sheer good music and awesome rendition of songs.. Though the number of songs in the album is less L but they really do leave their mark..  Rajesh Roshan has proved it yet again that he can give the best to his brother’s movies..

The music a teensy weensy tadly reminiscent of KNPH ESP the title and Na tum jaano Na hum effect.. But all said and done bloody brilliant album… KK rocks in both the soft melodious lilting numbers – Zindagi Do Pal Ki and Dil Kyu Ye Mera… Simply marvelous… These songs goes into my list of all time faves cos I know for sure even if I were to listen them 5 yrs down the line I would still fall in love with them all over again.. Just like I still fall in love with Mann Ki Lagan from Paap… every time I listen to it..  These 2 songs have seized me by my senses and captivated my mind to such an extent that even in my sleep I can hear these songs as if background music is on… errr.. My dreams interspersed with them too 😳

Overall the album gets a 4/5 no not for Hrithik you sillies..C’mon grow up.. Don’t you know Main Shahid Ki Deewani hoon.. 😉

But those 2 songs are more than enough to make the album one of my all time favorites…

So go ahead and listen to them guys I’m sure you won’t be disappointed..

Ok now for the detailed review

~~

Zindagi Do pal ki KK –  if I had to choose just one song from this album and say “this is the best” it has to be this one.. Maaann.. Whatte song whatte song.. I’m yet to come out of it.. The day I downloaded and listened to it you won’t believe me I listened to jus this one track continuously for 3 days.. Yes 3 days…

KK at his mellifluous best.. Rajesh Roshan at his mushiest best..What more can I ask for.. Bliss..!!! Absolute Bliss..!A perfect blend of music direction genius and singer’s élan.. This one surely leaves a mark and keeps you yearning for more.. KK has not lost his charm at all.. Infact he has managed to weave a brand new version of himself.. I have never heard him sound like this before.. Till date he was given songs that worked on his high range potentiality but this time.. It was more on the base.. And not just that he sounds different.. So un-KK-ish and yet manages to leave you spellbound…I’m dying to see Hrithik in this song.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Dil Kyu mera ~ KK– the second best song in this album,… KK proves his mettle again.. A soul stirring love song.. I believe many of you might have already seen/heard this one in the promos of the movie.. This one simply melts in your ears.. Music is as usual simply superb.. Enticing and yet soothing.. The guitar notes do tend to capture your sense… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Tum bhi ho wahi ~ Vishal dadlani Suraj Jagan – this one’s a nice breezy number.. A little fast paced.. The music is definitely nice.. A slight acapella effect to it..Loved the overall effect.. A perfect song for those recently fallen in love.. There’s not much I feel to write about the song.. I mean this one dint affect me as much as I loved the previous 2.. After listening to that this sounds a tad feeka (bland).. But definitely worth a listen.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Kites in the Sky ~ Suzanne DMello and Hrithik Roshan – yes you read it write.. Its indeed sung by Hrithik himself… aaww.. Maaann… whatte voice.. No sillies.. No bias here… a very subtle lilting start slowly goes on a soprano-ish effect.. And thankfully unlike other Actor-turned-singers.. Hrithik’s masculine voice is like a breath of fresh air… I wouldn’t say he sings like a professional I don’t want you guys hunting me down and throwing stones on me… but compared to the other actor-singers HR def is a good find.. And the sheer fact that it’s English lyrics acts as a positive thing going for him.. He has sung this song beautifully.. The whole effect of the song is such that it stirs your soul.. Plays with your heart strings.. Soft n lilting.. Like a feather caressing.. Aaahhh.. BLISS..!! CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Fire (Hindi)- Rajesh Roshan Vishal Dadlani –  nice fast paced number.. Perfect danceable track.. Very peppy.. More music less words.. But the music makes up for the lack of words and packs the punch home.. Awesome mixing effects.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Zindagi remixas usual my typical funda applies here.. When I like the original its but obvious that I love the remixes too.. Though I’m generally against remixes but when they are don’t tactfully and present the song in a whole new manner I love them.. And DJ Amyth has done a fab job on this.. there are some remixes that you like more than the original itself for e.g. Bakhuda tumhi ho from kismet konnection this is one of those that manages to enrapture your senses and captivate your mind with its superb rendition.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Dil kyu mera remix same funda applies to this one too.. Infact  I feel the remix version is more alluring than the original itself.. No that does not mean the original is not nice.. If the original is superb.. This is supersplendofantabulous 😛

I hope you get what I mean now.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Tum BHI HO wahi – remix.. The remix is good.. But just as I said about the original.. There’s not much to write about the song.. Maybe when I see Hrithik grooving on screen I might just about have something to drool over this song too 😛 as of now this stands CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Fire  – English –  just like the Hindi version this one is bereft of lyrics as such.. Just a few lines but then the music as I said adds the zeal and zing that’s required… this is one of those tracks which are perfect for those long lazy drives on a drizzly night.. Simply zabraakooo CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

~~~

Overall this goes right into my list of all time fave albums.. Trust me every song is pretty much worth it..

And no, no biases on I being a Hrithik movie.. After all I’m still truthful and sincere to my Shahid.. But as swetha asked me decide once and for all Hrithik or Shahid..

And I said Shahid of course but how can one forget your first love…?? 😉

Temme temme.. If Shahid is my present then Hrithik is my past.. He is my first love and how can you forget your first love..That’s impossible.. Right 😛

So go ahead guys listen up the album.. I would say it’s one of the best albums this year.. For me it rules even Prince that I so highly recommended to you all..Cos I have been glued to this album since the day I downloaded which is like more than 2 weeks now.. 😳

That clearly explains how enamored I am with this one… and the KK songs are more than enough to keep me glued for hours.. Imagine 24X7 I’m tuned to this for more than 15 days.. Which is like 😯

Moreover the lyrics are really simple..Not too much usage of heavy words.. Just plain simple Hindi… and that just adds to the music.. Rajesh Roshan and KK *thumbs up*

Over all album  – CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN :mrgreen:

That’s it from Megzone for now..
