~::~ 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..

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..!!

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..!!
