Vishal-Shekhar's music and comedies are the two desired entertaining components in multiplex cinema but still they have collaged only once through rip-roaring GOLMAAL. DE TAALI comes out as second major comical venture where the combination spells magic through loads of funky beat musical entertainment. The expectations are presumed to be high as duo had favorable musical successes with this year releases TASHAN and BHOOTNATH.
"Everybody puts your hands together", the cheerful sounding "thumping-clapping" anthem track comes out as enthralling animated melodic gesture for DE TAALI as it sizzles out vivaciously through the vibrant voices of Sunidhi Chauhan, Anushka Manchandani and Shaan. Its recurring drum beat patterns had similar fling that "Golmaal" (GOLMAAL-FUN UNLIMITED) had and is followed by mix and match of engrossing hip-hop and "qawalli" flavors. Vishal Dadlani's quizzically chirpy wordings have the humorous punches that add substance to the funky flavor of this laugh riot.
The frolicking comical show treadmills to extra miles through similar sounding "De Taali", another "buddy-bonding" fervor treat composed in "yuppie" loving rip-roaring musical outburst. Scriptwriter turned lyricist Abbas Tyrewala makes his first major splash at lyrics writing with impressive fun-loving witty liners like "Tu meri life ki shinning hai, winning hai, dinning hai, woh kaali badal to, tu silver lining hai…" that are likely to be next "mast ki paathshala" vocabulary for Gen X listeners. Shaan's vociferously splurge is simply fabulous and strikes combustible chemistry with oozing Sunidhi Chaiuhan's vocals and bouncy disco beat fillers arrangements. Vishal Shekhar scores a perfect ten in inundating the youthful hilarious musical show through brilliant teamwork. It's likely to be one big surprise at the charts that will surely be appreciating prospects for the album. Do enjoy added stimulating set of funky beat-juggling, DJ scratches and splashes mixed in this chartbusting track as echoing and thumping makes mood eclectic for party animals in enthralling "De Taali (remix)". Chartbuster!!!
After hard core gruffly voice of Vishal Dadlani in almost dozen hip-shaking tracks, its time for sonorously sounding Shekhar Ravjiani oiling out his vocal chords for heavy duty experimentation in seductively composed and rendered "Aaj Main Boond Hoon". Shreya Ghoshal's immaculately pristine rendition takes slender and sensuous route of seduction in moderately punched orchestration. Vishal Dadlani's lyrics deliver the desired sensuality in its modest "watery" wording but Shekhar sounds too unwelcoming to match Shreya's high standards. "Hone Lagi" brings out R.D Burman's 70's charm into fine blend of sensuality and melody into vocal gestures of impressive sounding Anushka Manchandani and Shekhar Ravjiani. Vishal-Shekhar makes inspiring moves to recreate the magic of "Baahon Mein Chale Aao" (ANAMIKA (1973)) into this tuneful sensuous number. Anushka's changing gears from boisterous singing to smooth sensuous numbers is sheer delight to ears while Shekhar adds brief moments of romanticism in his concise singing. It's "remix" version delivers dosages of sensual femininity that gets transcended to floors with flashy and thumping disco fervor. Rollicking!!!
Vishal Shekhar shows their benevolence by experimenting out Raja Hasan, runner-up in SAREGAMA (2007) in rendering out Rajasthani folksy track "Maari Teetri" with backdrop of topsy-turvy funky electronic music. Vishal Dadlani's simplistically penned wording camouflages well with folksy wording in delivering meaningful substance to the track. Raja Hasan's folksy baritone's suits the occasion but still it fails to deliver catchy flamboyance in its thumping rhythmical patterns.
Sunidhi Chauhan, Shaan and KK collages together for slow moving "buddy-bonding" number that expresses out romantically "blue" emotions in "Tooti Phooti". It brings emotions of teenage love of campus-capers with sluggish jazz melodic touches with shades of "Pyar Tumhe Kis Mod Par" (SATTE PE SATTA (1982)). Vishal Shekhar lethargic overtures in sluggish mode may be analogous to the situation but sounds too experimental for its indifferent treatment.
DE TAALI delivers funky paced musical madness that one expects from rip-roaring comical flick with bunch of chartbusting enchanting soundtracks. Vishal-Shekhar lives up to their high standards with entertaining soundtracks like "De Taali", "Everybody puts your hands together", "Hone Laagi" while "Aaj Main Boond Hoo" and "Tooti Phooti" has peculiar sounding treatment. It's music is likely to best sellers among this year comical entertainers and do expect to hear title track "De Taali" again and again on your favorite TV and radio channels in coming weekends.
