~::~ 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..

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


A Wee bit of Chance…!!!

Chance pe Dance is supposed to be a movie based on a struggling actor turned Dancer.. so the promos and songs give an idea.. Though I’m not much sure about it myself.. But the songs are pretty okay.. Considering the fact that the songs are required for a dance based movie.. With Adnan Sami as the music director and him not singing a single piece is a low low… but he still done a not so bad job… Verdict wise I would say not too impressive..so that would be a 2.5/5 since its aimed at people like me who are dance crazy and dance maniacs it’s a lackluster for them too… As for mere mortals I don’t think this album has much to offer.. even for the dancers there are just a few numbers that can be catchy and dance-pirational… but otherwise its just a meager okies dokie nothing too great about it album..

Personally I feel Adnan could have done loads better job..but sigghh..!! this is what he has to offer.. and this is all I have to review..

One more Dance –  kunal Ganjawala –  groovy number.. a wee bit of HIP HOP FEEL put in… definitely gets me moving, grooving, shaking nodding… breezy lovely number… definitely Danceable song 🙂  CERTIFIED DANCEABLE 😉

Pal Mein hi Soham an Shreya..  no reasons to say why you should like this song… cmon it’s a Shreya number… it’s a duet and romantic song 😀 and yes it rocks… its different and yet passionate number.. the music is cute and mindblowing esp for this song.. the use of guitar interludes magnificent..CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Pe Pe Pein –  Neeraj Sridhar and Saleem Shehzada –  most of you must have seen this one too in the promos so again there;s not much I can say.. though there;s one point I would like to make… when I first saw the title of the song I thought it had something to do with the English song Pepe pepein.. but later when  I heard the song I realized they are singing the shadi wala shehnai signature tune 😉  since the song starts with the shehnai number it sounds a lil comical to listen but later with the Rap and hiphop effect.. super song according to me… it reminds of the Twist number from LAK that’s cos of the Indian feel to a danceable song and both the songs had neeraj as the lead singer… CERTIFIED MISSABLE 😀

Pe Pe Pein (DUET) – Neeraj, Saleem & Tulsi kumar –  another version of the same song… only addition is the female singer.. and a few added music effects here and there.. this again is pretty much the same as the previous number… ek hi mushkil se bardaasht hota hai do do version ho tho main kya karoon 😐 so nothing great.. kinda  CERTIFIED MISSABLE.. 🙂  (see I’;m so honest even if it’s a SHAHID movie… yo me saint me 😀 )

Pump it Up –  Vishal Dadlani – This again is one of those numbers aired during the promos of the movie… mindblowing… what else can u expect when there;s vishal dadlani singing the song… the music in some places reminds me of Krazzy 4 song.. a few bhangra interludes has you hankering for more … foot tapping body shaking.. head nodding groovy number… and with shahid showing his slurpilicious 8 pack abs what more can I ask for….The only number every KB I downloaded CERTIFIED DANCEABLE 😀

Just do it – Chance pe Dance –  this ones an amazing song.. it’s a rap n hip hop.. cos it showcases all the different types of dance styles.. bhangra, hip hop, jhatka matkas… I must say I loved the rap effect.. add in a zing of harmonium and a dash of classical interlude… and you get a piece which has u lapping it up like crazy… superlicious number.. and the lyrics – kewl funny and in trend with the current slang words too..the only other number which is worth every KB I downloaded CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Pump it up Remix DJ A Myth –  now this is what I call a remix.. when you get in a professional DJ and get a remix of the song done.. that what remix is all about.. but the song which is already a hip n cool number how much more happening and fast paced can you make it,.. well.. u will just have to listen to it to believe it… its simply fab it gave me perfect dhuaandhaar shiny lights crazy coloured smoke pub effect… love the original… love the remix too 😀 CERTIFIED DANCEABLE

Rishta hai mera – Shaan & Tulsi Kumar – inception of the song sounds soulful and slowly the pace picks up… and yet the song is simply wonderful yo listen to…Shaan at his best and tulsi sounds as if she’s singing for a teenage super star ala hanah Montana 😀 naa naa not exactly that way but the song is cute in its own way… not too impressive but definitely a feel good kind of song…not too good.. but considering it’s a Shaan number 😉 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Yaba Daba yahoo kunal Ganjawala – this has a the Los Lobos song La Bamba feel to it… the acapella-ish feel to it.. is simply cute n yet stunning… Kunal’s voice modulation is definitely on par in certain places he reminded me of kishore kumar… sigh… I miss that man today.. wish he was there at this age and era.. how much I miss him… sigh.. back to the review… well.. I liked this song… pretty hummable,.. well it did remind of the kinds of songs.. TIMON AND PUMBA sing 😀 yep those kinda songs…  CERTIFIED Wacky 😛

So that’s my verdict  of this album… your opinions are definitely welcome in the comments sections.. for the dance lovers this album has just a wee bit, countable on one hand number of  songs to offer which you can dance and choreograph on.. and for the others they can simply listen to the songs – PAL MEIN and JUST DO IT I’m sure these are 2 numbers you would like… for the not so musical mates.. you can give this album a complete miss  🙂

The final call is yours 😀
