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.. 😛

Baat Not Pakki…!!!

Toh Baat pAkki…

When a movie touts of Tabu dioing a comic role it sure captures attention.. atleast mine..

And sigh..!! me being me.. downloaded the songs.. and soweeeee 😥

I profusely sincerely honestly completely apologise  to put u guys through the torture..

But continuing my usual Samaaj Seva (Social Service – YO! ME SAINT ME 😀 ) here’s the review

~~~

Dil le jaa – jassi Javed ali, indee, shilpa rao –  anice funky punju number.. like all Punjabi numbers this one def has u shaking a leg.. nodding your head.. for the melodies wonly plees..kindly ignore 😛 I personally liked this one… this one’s a tru blu wedding swinger in the making.. CERTIFIED BARE-ABLE

Jis Din Mika –  mika seems to have taken bollywood by storm off late.. not that im a fan.. sooweeee no thanks.. I prefer his elder bro anytime.. but he seems to be getting good numbers actual… I saw the video of this one before I downloaded it.. and Sharman and Tabu intrigued me enough to download this one.. well its def not a bad listen.. another Marriage number I wud say 🙂 CERTIFIED BARE-ABLE

Jis Din remix –Mika – this is the kind of remixes I hate.. where all they do is increase the pace of the song.. add in a few rap lyrics in between.. but nothing remade-redone nothing.. CERTIFIED MISSABLE

Karle mujse pyar – rana soham pritam – I’m not sure if this is a remake of any other foreign song or no.. but trust me this is a sure winner.. I’m sure many are gonna like this.. this is on the lines of tu hi meri shab hai and kya mujhe pyar hai.. they mite be flicked from somewhere but u still love them..the guitar interludes like all pritam songs… are breath-taking.. so copied or not this ones a CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Phir se – Sonu – I don’t need a reason to put this one on my MUST LISTEN list.. but then being the SAINT ME 😀 I still provide u my insight on this one.. it starts with a real peppy pace.. this has an old world charm to it.. as in like the 90s songs feel to it.. but it’s a nice breezy number.. and sonu’s voice is like chocolate melting in ur mouth the moment u pop it in…yep trust me.. gosh its superbbb….. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE..

Phir se remix – I hate remixes.. and this the typical types that I don’t like.. so COMPLETELY MISSABLE

Aarthi – antara mitra – wen they are using the age old Aarthi Om jai Jagadish and not offering it even in a new way.. why bother to make a new singer do it.. might as well have used an old tape of the Aarthi.. CERTIFIED MISSABLE

Dil Le  jaa – remix – pathetic remixes as usual COMPLETELY MISSABLE

~~~

1/5 only one song really worth it Karle Mujse Pyar,, Phir SE is good only cos of SONU.. but jus 2 tracks don’t maketh an album.. so guys jus download just Karle Mujhse Pyar.. Listen to Phir Se and then decide whether you wanna download it or not… and the remaining.. just forget it…. I wonder I bothered to waste my bits and bytes downloading them 😦

In Short BAAT DEFINITELY NOT PAKKI 😡

Sigh..!!

Striker Strikes Some Chords..!!

its Yuvan Shankar Raja giving music in hindi, you know you’re a tad apprehensive.. cos the tamil film industry doesn’t exactly work the way Bollywood does …but YSR is known for his syle of music.. If there’s someone in the Raja family after the maestro himself, I wud say YSR anytime.. so there’s an expectation too.. and well..Striker lives upto the apprehensions and expectation at the same time.. Completely.. if not urs atleast mine.. When you hear a movies surrounding a game of Carrom, I don’t expect much.. With YSR’s music there has to be something to look forward to.. The usual magical strings woven with beautiful soul-stirring words.. That’s what Striker is.. 3/5 is my personal score to the album

MUST LISTENsYun Hua (VB the great J) Pia Saanwara (for the soulful folks –read HIMANSHU* 😛 ) Cham Cham(mellifluous Sonu 😀 ) and Aim Lagaa (rocking Blaaze)

Okies…now the detailed review 😀

~

Yun Hua ~ Vishal Bhardwaj –  slight reminisces of Kaminey Title songs.. But the typical VB spell.. Mesmerizing music… Soothing words.. Serene instruments.. And you have a winner.. That’s what Yun Huaa is..The BEST SONG in this album yuppies m a VB FAN 😀 honestly sincerely obviously has to be CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Haq Se ~ Yuvan Shankar Raja, Siddarth– hindi song sung by YSR 😯 I was more shocked than curious.. it has his typical touch.. it has the south Indian influence.. In some places when YSR sings he reminds u of ARR albeit with a slightly heavy voice.. its an ok listen… I think this one would take some time to grow into me.. Till then CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Maula ~ Swanand Kirkire – starts with a folk feel to it.. And like all Maula songs.. Manages to make a mark in heart and head.. Heart cos of the endearing tune and head.. Cos of the lyrics.. I see a slight Dilli -6 feel in this.. And yes its sure to be catchy and gets stuck in ur head..ESP the lyrics and the tune… but doesn’t appeal to me much so CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Aim Laga ~ Blaaze – the most rocking number of the album.. When I say rocking.. I mean it literally.. Blaaze proves his mettle again..Rapper.. The funky interludes intermingled with the slight classical touch.. Bloody brill I wud say.. The most catchy swervy ubercool number in the album.. instantly catches on to you.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Bombay Bombay ~ Siddharth– starts with a dialogue explaining the life in BOMBAY.. After listening to Siddharth in Something Something Unakum Enakum.. I was def looking forward to his singing.. But then I must say That DON’T impress ME MUCH… the music yes.. It makes its mark.. Lines are catchy.. But siddharth’s voice personally seems to be a letdown to me.. Just for YSR this is CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Cham Cham ~ Sonu –  I don’t need any more reason to like this song J Sonu is enough for me to make it a must listen.. But making an unbiased opinion (YO! ME SAINT ME) this is one of the best songs in this album.. The mere sufi-ness in this song and the qawwali-ish feel is more than enough to take an instant liking to this one.. Definitely has to be CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Pia Saanvara ~ Sunidhi Chauhan – a soulful ballad.. Been ages since I heard sunidhi at her best… so used to listening her belting out peppy numbers that forgot she has the capability to croon in a way that makes u swoon… another lovely number in the album.. Super splendiferous number this one.. Hats off Sunidhi….CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Aim Lagaa Rickshaw mix.. I don’t like remixes.. And in some ways I don’t like this one too.. But in some places its so catchy that I can’t stop swaying with it.. So I leave the decision of this number with you.. NO CERTIFICATIONS on this one 😈

That’s about Striker… Some strike the right chords some missed..

Overall not a bad listen…

That’s it from Megzone for now..

Cheerios..!! :mrgreen:

*I’m sure Himanshu is gonna kill me for this.. This is the second time I’ve taken his case in music reviews.. And now that he’s back to pavilion.. I better be a tad careful (megs control kar yaar 😳 )
