~::~ Dabangg ~::~

The overall music score would be an average but for 1 single song with a total of 3 versions this album stands out.. No prizes for guessing which one.. Duh!! Raahat bhai’s song Tere Mast Mast Do Nain which has 3 versions – his solo, duet with Shreya and a remix..  the success of this album to a very large extent rides on the success of just a couple of songs.. Firstly Raahat Bhai’s song apart from that Munni Badnaam Hui largely for mass appeal , Malaika Arora Khan’s gyrations and definitely the Item number part of it.. This one is sure to be a hit not only for all weddings and college fests but even with the local autowallahs.. Why even I love it already..  Just waiting to catch a glimpse at Malaika’s jhatkas and matkas.. Humka Peeni Hai again would draw in the crowds for its uncanny resemblance to Khaike Paan banaraswala.. Nonetheless to all those who like folksy songs this one’s gonna be a super hit.. My rating would be 3.5/5

Chori Kiya re Jiya Sonu Nigam Shreya Ghosal – soft melodious song.. a nice romantic duet.. it has a tad western influence with respect to the music.. For a film based in Bihar.. I wonder why and how.. but nonetheless it’s a lovely number.. The tune somehow reminds me of Sonu’s music albums.. Not sure which song though.. But brings out that effect.. The lyrics are nice.. A tad predictable though.. the lines “tune hi chori kiya re jiya.. mora jiya are a lil addictive they stick in ur head even after the song is over.. Certified Listenable..Why? cos I think it wud take some more time to sink in and make it a must listen 😛 So for now its CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Hud Hud DabanggSukhwinder and Wajid –  a signature Sukhwinder song.. the perfect number that you would except sukhwinder to belt out.. it has a head swaying effect on you.. atleast  had it on me.. so m speaking for myself.. there is a folksy effect to the whole song and I definitely aint surprised going by the location of the movie.. Wajid has complemented Sukhwinder perfectly.. the lyrics are spattered with bihari hindi.. pretty much like a war cry kinda song..  CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Humka Peeni hai Wajid, Master Salim and Shabab – it seems to start with a Khaike Paan Banaras wala effect.. its pretty much in the same lines.. only here its not paan but either alcohol/bhaang.. nonetheless this is one of those head nodding/leg shaking numbers.. to which u cant help swaying.. for all those in love with folksy numbers  and dance number fans are sure to like it.. somewhere in between I was reminded of Omkara –Beedi Jalayle.. so if u have enjoyed tht one u are sure to like this too.. the lyrics are complete with masti and slang.. “matka mein apni tho tounti lagayile..” wen I heard it for the first time I burst out laffing.. basically cos I don’t know wat it means.. If any of you biharis out there and know wat it means kindly enlighten me.. And as for me since I love masti timepass dance numbers this goes for CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Tere Mast Mast Do NainRaahat Fateh Ali KhanDo I need to say anymore on why I like this song or what its certified as.. This is THE BEST SONG in this album.. Forget all the others and just listen to this.. Its one of the signature Rahat songs.. Mindblasting I say.. pehle peher tujhe dekha tho dil mera dhadka haye dhadka haaye jal jal utha hoon main shola jo pyar ka bhadka haaye bhadka haaye.. If someone was to sing this song like raahat for me.. I wud be ghayal in a jiffy 😛  I have no words to express the beauty of this song.. all I can say is CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Munni Badnaam mamta Sharma & Aishwarya –  new singers on the block.. and a perfect Item Number song.. I wouldn’t be surprised if this goes on to become the most raging song of this year.. With Malaika Arora Khan performing onscreen I am one eager human waiting to catch the video 😉 if you have liked item numbers like beedi and namak ishq ka and babuji zara dheere chalo you are sure to like this one atleast I do .. the lyrics are ROFL stuff… I mean imagine sayin “main zandu balm hui darling tere liyemaannn I was frigging laughing when I heard that.. but this one’s a really dhinchakkk number I have myself grooving whenever I hear this one 😀 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Humka Peeni hai (remix)Wajid, Master Salim and Shabab – the original was funtoosh.. and the remix is just about fast paced with some additional beats and liberal use of western instruments..this one again is definitely something m sure im gonna like n simply for the fast beats and masti effect.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Tere Mast Mast Do NainRaahat Fateh Ali Khan & Shreya Ghosal – this ones the duet version of the other song… the moment Shreya starts u are even more mesmerized with the song than u were.. now I cant ignore Raahat nor Shreya and I cant do injustice to Shreya  by sayin I don’t like this one… just cos I am a Raahat Fan 😀 😛 so nonetheless both these songs are simply awesome.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Munni Badnaam hui remix Mamta Sharma & Aishwarya – if u have liked the original u are sure to like this 😀  Not sure how many of you have heard the Kooke Koyaliya song from Life partner.. if you have then you know wat to expect from this song.. U like it u hate it but u cant ignore it, nice catchy groovy Item Number –  CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Dabangg Theme this ones more of an audio theatrical trailer than a theme in itself.. I have never come across a theme with dialogues.. whereas this one has all the effect of the punches the gunshots the screams the punch dialogues et all.. the musical interludes are ok not that great or anything.. But nice the highlights wud be the latino effect.. CERTIFIED MISSABLE

Tere Mast Mast Do Nain – remix Raahat Fateh Ali Khan – sigh!!! Wat do I say now.. They have not only given us 2 versions of this song already.. They even went on to give us a remix.. Not that I am too impressed with the remix.. But then as I said I can’t\ ignore Raahat but given a choice I can definitely pass over this one for the original solo one 😉 so this one goes in for a CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

That’s it on Dabangg peeps… Go get the music and enjoy.. the musical pundits please stick to Raahat’s songs, the dance peeps can chck out Humka Peeni Hai and ofcourse Munni Badnaam Hui.. for those who love folksy tunes get the whole album guys and for the others – listen to the songs before you download them..

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..

Keep Smiling…!! Keep Rocking..!! Keep Blogging..!!

Cheerios..!! :mrgreen:

Prince ~ Charming Indeed..!!

When you have an album full of songs from Atif Aslam what more can you ask for..

When you have songs that enter through your ears and become with one with you when your mind keeps humming…buzzing.. Muting… and echoing the same songs again and again what more can you expect…

Remixes or no Remixes this album is a CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN… 😀

Yes each and every song is simply mind-blasting.. But…there always a but… 🙄

If you’re not someone who doesn’t mind listening to Lounge kinda feel… then you can skip it…

Cos most of the songs have good orchestration and hence they give out a lounge feel… couple of them are the typical Discotheque kinda songs… perfect Dance Numbers… IF you don’t like such stuff. Skip it…

And if you do not like them but yes you are open to all kinds of music then trust me you would love this one…

Cos I do… the mere fact that 90% songs are Atif Aslam is more than enough to have me hooked on to this…

Especially when the song is “Tere Liye” its completely un-missable.. You have to have to have to listen to this one at least if not the other songs… This song has simply captured my brain cells and done such a hubble-bubble to it that all I keep humming all day long is “jannate sajai maine tere liye… chod di khudai maine tere liye…” simply supersplendofantasmashinglicious :mrgreen:

Personally I would give it a 4.5/5 partly cos it’s a superb Atif Album to have and secondly cos I loved all the songs… Neutrally thinking (see I’m so considerate about my readers…Yo! Me Saint Me.!!) 😛 I would give it say a 3.5-4 cos frankly the songs are all really good.. The music is different and catchy… definitely pulls in masses… the Music Director Sachin Gupta has definitely give a super album here… Kudos… bravo… keeps em coming… 🙂

And now for the detailed review… 😀

~~~

Tere Liye ~ Atif Aslam, Shreya Ghoshal– what do I tell about this song.. It’s one of those songs that just stick inn ur head and refuse to leave… Albeit the opening lines reminds me of that old song called “ho jaata hai kaise pyar na jaane koi naa jaane koi” from the movie yalgarThis is one of those where u simply flow away with Atif and get usurped into his world 😀 U won’t believe all my class hours this Sunday I was just humming this song incessantly my bench mate had got completely frustrated 😀 I am completely totally sincerely hopelessly in love with this song… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

O mere khuda ~ Atif Aslam, Garima Jhingon – After Tere Liye if there’s one song that keeps you hooked on is definitely O mere Khuda… this one’s already appearing in all the promos of the movie… definitely a rocking number.. And yet another lovely number… Simply Rocking…  CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Kaun Hoon Main ~ Atif Aslam – when I saw the title of the song I thought this is gonna be like the Main kya hoon from Love Aaj Kal… but the moment Atif started crooning maaann… I was simply lost… it felt as if a wave of euphoria just washed over me and took to a distant land… Atif is simply mind-blowing in this song… He is one of those singers who can just melt your heart…. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Aa Bhi Jaa Sanam ~ Atif Aslam – Atif at his mellifluous best in this… the way he says “aa bhi jaa sanam you naa kar sitam” maannn… if someone was to sing like this…faala main tho sab kuch chod chaadke bhaag jaati uske paas… You can’tignore this song… it simply captures your attention and leaves you yearning for more and more and more of Atif… hayyyeee…wat do I say now..I’m completely swayed with the songs… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Jiyara Jiyara ~ Alisha Chinai, Hard Kaur – this is a typical dance number.. The starting reminds me of the Main tera Dhadkan teri from APKGK… maybe cos both the preludes are sung by Hard Kaur… But yes this is a perfect item number pub/disco number… and I’m sure this is gonna end up being a college fest rocker and also the next common dance bit in all these reality dance shows 🙂 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Ishq Mein ~Monali thakur – this is a feel good number… you can listen to it… it seems more like a item-number-ish kinda number… but no no ranti lyrics or music.. It’s a nice breezy number… fairly good singing too… might not appeal to all… but the lyrics are really awesome… CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Prince Mega mix ~ Sachin Gupta – this is a mega mix in all the sense of the term… throw in all the songs of the movie… o mere khuda.. Kaun hoon main…Jiyara Jiyara… tere liye…aa bhi jaa sanam… add in some sound mixers… make sure Atif is doing his usual super-aalaap (err…thts wat I cud explain tht bit as 😕 )Add some dhinchak beats… bring in the electro –effect and you have a mega mix 😀 and yes I would mind listening to this too… yes yes I know I am against remix… but not when Atif is singing peeps… he’s the best 😀 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Aa Bhi Jaa Sanam (Dance Mix) ~ Atif Aslam – Add in electro mixers to this song… increase the pace…bring in the extra drums… a lil bit of mixing here and there and you have the dance mix… perfect for the long drives with music blasting from your system… and yes yes I love it.. It has Atif after all 😀 for my purposes its must listen but for the benefit of my readers.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Kaun Hoon Main (Dance Mix) ~ Atif Aslam – add the electro feel… fasten the pace… add in mixers and voila you have the dance mix… CERTIFIED LISTENABLE ONLY FOR ATIF LOVERS 😀

O mere khuda(Dance Mix) ~ Atif Aslam, Garima Jhingon –lots of mixing in this one… lots of Atif crooning in this.. Garima sounds a lot like Shilpa Rao… Definitely Listenable and CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN for ATIF fans 😀

Tere Liye (Unplugged) ~ Atif Aslam, Shreya Ghoshal – aaahhh… this one’s so soft and melodious that you simply lose yourself in Atif’s voice… albeit it’s been digitized a bit…at least that’s what I feel… but he’s sung this one soooo softly and sweetly that when he says “zara paas tho aa mere” u really feel the yearning in his voice and you automatically flow with it… 🙂  it sounds like a sad version of the song this is for those who love such songs(man-himan are you listening 😛 )… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Kaun Hoon Main (Lounge mix) ~ Atif Aslam –aaahhh perfect bliss…  perfect lounge mix… perfect for those rainy evenings with a cuppa tea and staring into those incessant droplets of water pouring down.. With a misty effect on your glass panes 🙂 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Jiyara Jiyara (Bhangra Mix) ~ Alisha Chinai Hard Kaur –  add in some Bhangra beats.. Slow down the pace a wee bit… and you have the Bhangra MIX… naahhh that don’t impress me much 😉 So CERTIFIED MISSABLE

Tere Liye (Dance Mix) ~ Atif Aslam, Shreya Ghoshal – lots of mixing and Electro effect… not much of pace… but definitely worth listening just for Atif… CERTIFIED LISTENABLE for you guys…

Prince Theme~ this theme is more like dance mix in itself… lots of music no lyrics no nothing… just plain music.. Though it does seem a tad reminiscent of the Karthik Calling Karthik theme but it’s definitely good theme NO CERTIFICATIONS on this one… make your pick 😀

Tere Liye (Hip Hop Mix) ~ Atif Aslam, Shreya Ghoshal– though it says Hip-hop mix it gives me a more Lounge-ish effect and feels… And this being the bestestestestestest song in the album… the innumerable versions keep coming out and I religiously listen them all for Atif… So CERTIFIED LISTENABLE for you guys…

~~~

So that’s that… thus endeth the album and its mammoth review….: D

I hope you liked the review… and I really hope you like the songs too…

Trust me the songs are definitely worth listening… more than one listens actually 😀

That’s it from Megzone for now….

Three cheers ~ Teen patti…!!

This was one movie which had sparked quite some interest.. Not only cos it’s a Big B movie but cos there’s another Big B in it 😉 Ben Kingsley.. And moreover it does seem to be inspired from the ashton kutcher movie 21.. only since teen patti is more popular than black jack in our country.. they have adapted the movie around this card game… I wonder why this sudden theme of sports and games for movies(Lagaan, Chak De, Striker, Teen Patti) 🙄

Ok back to the review or shud I say overview 😉

All songs are simply awesome.. I can’t pick out this or that this is the best or this is okayish.. the music, the lyrics , the singers and the effect of the songs all in perfect tandem with each other… this is one of those few albums which I can easily say is a Best/Must Buy.. simply cos all the songs are superb… The whole album is complete infact at times leave you hankering for more.. Kudos to Saleem Suleiman..

I give it a 4.75/5 simply cos I never give full marks to any albums.. No its not that they don’t deserve it its just that I always feel something lacking..or that I’m left yearning for more J

Now for my detailed analysis 😉

~

Neeyat Kharaab hai ~ Sunidhi Chauhan – awww… maaann.. this is such a wonderful song… and it kinda takes me back to the era when Cabaret was popular… welll… cabaret needn’t be a fast number.. and the sensuality coupled with a eerie-ness are definitely not worth missing… err..this one can make anyone’s neeyat kharaab 😛 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Intezaar mein chupa hai kahin ~ Naresh Kamat –  this is one helluva number which can keep you glued and one of those that easily get stuck in ur head… and the music… mind-blowing..  its starts slow with low tones and slowly gathers the pace and the boldness… from the lower octave to the higher.. and the beats… maaannn.. wattay number… trust me you should definitely listen to this.. to me it kinda gives a creepy feel to it.. as if danger is just lurking around and ready to pounce on you… Oh man..! CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN…

Teen Patti ke Ghulam ~Salim Merchant – Now this is one that’s gonna not only rock the dance floors but also you mind floors… the title song and the most catchy in the whole movie.. the mere two-liner “Ikka, badshah, rani, teen yehi hai baja de teen patti ke gulam paisa” is gonna be stuck in ur head even after the song is over and you might have switched off ur ipod/system whatever u listen to… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Life is a Game (English) ~ Amitabh Bachchan, Sonia Saigal – maaannn.. This ones on par with any english OST.. Though somewhere in the middle the beats are reminiscent of Pyar Impossible.. Whoever Sonia Saigal is I believe she must b an NRI.. her english is not accented but it doesn’t sound Indian in any which way.. Even Anoushka Manchanda’s would lose out to her… bloody brilliant I guess.. And AB’s sentences in between just add to the spooky effect… esp the ending lines.. they kinda remind me of AB and Manoj Bajpai’s AKS(Rakeysh Om Prakash Mehra’s first one)  CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Neeyat Kharaab Hai ~ Sunidhi Chauhan – this is one remix that I truly madly deeply love J this one’s one of those that you would wanna blast on a long drive in ur car on the lonely roads… CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Teen Patti Remix ~ Salim Merchant –  Same as the above.. this is one zabrakoo number.. and the remix is almost on par with the original… the remix of this remix is sure to have the dance floors burning.. its one splendid number.. I loved the beats in this one.. just cant stop nodding my head 🙂 .. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Intezaar mein Chupa(remix) ~ Naresh kamat –  Oh maan.. this is crazy.. this seems to be one album where I love all the remixes too.. that’s why I said I just cant get enough of this album… This is wat I call Salim Suleiman music.. and no Sufism too.. just pure westernized Indian music.. the higher notes have been mellowed down with music but nonetheless I love this.. for you all anti-remixes.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Life is  a game (hindi version) ~ Amitabh Bachhan Sonia Saigal –  loved this one as much as I loved the English version.. Here Sonia sounds sooo much Anushka Manchanda that I wonder if its really Sonia 🙄

Oh I still like it very very very much.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Summertime an the Live~ Joe Alvares – this is a perfect slice of the club music.. I don’t mean on the club music.. but the kind of music that could be played in clubs/casinos and the like.. and the singer Joe has a kinda elvis-ish voice… heavy voice.. obviously cant match the king.. but seeing the fact that theres a dearth of heavy-voiced singers he’s perfect.. aw… maann.. like this one.. only it’s a tad to short 😦 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

~

Sigh..!! That’s all.. thus endeth the album and the review 😦

Oh ur wondering why m sad…. I liked all the songs.. and I want more.. so all I end up doing is replaying the songs… 😀

So go out guys get the music.. I swear you wont complain… atleast im glad I downloaded..

And now im just looking forward to the movie…

That’s it from Megzone for now..!!

Keep Smiling..!! Keep Rocking..!! Keep Blogging..!!

Cheerios..!! :mrgreen:

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..!!

That’s it from Megzone..!!

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..

Keep Smiliing..!! Keep Rocking..!!! Keep Blogging..!!

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 😳 )

Calling SEL Geniuses..!!

Karthik Callin Karthik..

Yaayy…. Now that’s what I call SEL music.. Oh SEL = Shankar Ehsaan Loy you sillies…

After a super lackluster in MNIK , SEL hits back with a vengeance… Or is it the Farhaan Akhtar effect 😉

Yeaa remember Dil Chahta Hai, Lakshya, Don, Rock On (ok so wat if it was directed by Abhishek ‘Gattu’ Kapoor, it was still produced by Farhaan 😛 ) Luck By chance (oi Farhan’s home production 😉 )

Err..yeaa…whatever…Nonetheless me is loving it completely 😀

Ok back to the review 😀

Overview :

Overall it’s a good album… many fresh tracks.. err… ok overall there are 9 tracks, consisting of 7 tracks +2 remixes.. Though Theme says remix I dint find the original version of the theme 🙄  so for me that’s not a remix 😉

Kkiieekkiieekkiiee :mrgreen:

Some of the songs vaguely -teensy-weensy-minutely remind you of their previous work but overall an album worth listening…

The classical interludes in most of the songs are simply spell binding..

My favorites would be Uff Teri Ada and Karthik Calling Karthik (I like the female whisperings)

And for all those hard core “melodies wonly pleej” (Himanshu note 😉 ) peeps don’t fret we have Kailash Kher with someone called Sukanya Purayastha crooning soulfully on Jaane Kaisi Yeh udaasi..

And as usual SEL does not leave KK I dunno somehow their combination is always a rocking one 😀

Yep KK singing Jaane Ye Kyaa huaa hai for SEL…Soulful romantic number

The use of Midival Punditz for the theme remix and Karthik 2.0 (Prem technology here too 😛 ) is simply marvelous they have delivered what was expected off them J

I give it a 4/5 cos now that they are back with a bang I waann more…. 😕

Only 7 tracks don’t impress me much 😀 I need more good music SEL 😀

YO! Me greedy me!! 😛

Yes all you peeps can def download/buy the album… it’s definitely worth listening

Detailed review – (ofcourse how could u even think otherwise 😉 its Megzone afterall 😀 )

Hey Ya ~ Clinton Cerejo, Shankar Mahadevan when I first heard this I thought it was Farhaan himself singing.. ( Sigh..!! High hopes meggiee.. 😕 ) But then Clinton’s voice purrfecto for Farhaan, it has the same hoarse touch to it like Farhaan’s…  and yes this one is definitely one number that is gonna be people’s favorites…CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Uff teri Ada ~  Shankar Mahadevan Alyssa Mendonsa –  this to me is the best track in the album… I love the peppiness and yet the rustic classical influence it has… and the beats are foot-tapping too… and the aalaaps make you wanna lose urself… *double thumbsup* Mr Shankar Mahadevan…  This to a very large extent is something which is gonna have a mass appeal and yes its here to stayCERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Jaane ye Kya huaaKK –  as said before KK and SEL have a charm of their own.. Right from Koi kahe (DCH) to this one… it’s a nice pleasant number  oopss..Romantic number (isssh… 🙂  ) just a perfect song for those looonnnggg drives…long walks by the beach… moonlit escapades… all of it.. this is gonna be a couple’s fave soon 😉 this is the song that has a slight WUS effect too.. but then SEL being SEL definitely create magic with KK in this.. I loved the music.. its soo calm… so serene… like feather caressing your face…aahhh…. Ooopss 😳 review… review.. Meggie get back to the review… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Kaisi hai ye Udaasi ~ Kailash Kher and Sukanya Purayastha – aaahh….soulful ballad… and Kailash and Sukanya do perfect justice to the song.. Kailash brings out his poignant best in this song…. Reminds me of the Ya Rabba song from Salam-e-Ishq.. Well.. I cried in that song.. This isn’t the same.. But yes the effect it leaves u with is pretty much the same.. SEL’s music reminds me of Salam-e-ishq number in certain places.. But nonetheless a pretty original track.. And yes a perfect listen for the broken hearts and those sad rainy moments…heart-wrenchingly haunting indeed… CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Karthik Calling Karthik ~ Suraj Jagan, Shankar Mahadevan, Caralisa Monteiro – loved the starting teen-teen-teen  phone effect… the music slightly reminds you of DON… but bloody brill number I must say… the female lead’s voice has a mesmerizing effect the way she says “Karthik…karthik calling karthik…pick up the phone” u really feel creepy as if someone’s tellin u.. err…to be brutally honest for a second a chill went down my spine wen I heard it n I was like FREAK..!!!!  😳 … sigh…!!! CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Karthik 2.0midival punditz… they have given the whole Karthik calling Karthik song a superb technology uplift.. oh wondering how.. this one has more music and less lyrics.. and more than that.. remember those english movies like mission impossible/ where the background music plays whilst the hero is busy doing some illegally legal work.. yep.. this one sounds pretty much like that.. and yes a tad DON influence here again.. but definitely listenable 😀 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

KCK theme remix~ I dunno why they call it theme remix.. 🙄 ok the music is based on Karthik 2.0 but then it has the mixture of the title track also.. so it cant be a remix… jus cos midival punditz do it u cant call it remix yaar..nonetheless I simply love that teen-teen-teen-phone effect a lot 😀 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Hey Ya remix~ Clinton, Shankar – as I’ve said before if I like the original most of the times I love the remix too…. Though this one is not a remix in all the terms of the words.. its just a faster version of the original.. no additional beats/tunes/nothing at all.. jus fast paced a wee bit.. but yes still its CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Uff teri Ada remix ~ Shankar, Alyssa Mendonsa Original or remix I love this song… as ‘ve said before this is MY PICK from this album…but yes this is more like techno mix to the original.. Nice one.. as I said nice foot tapping beats..

CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN (ok I’m biased but WTH my blog… meri marzi 😉 )
