Sanjay Gadhvi's blustering arrival with DHOOM and DHOOM 2 made him as the most happening directorial prospect of the Hindi filmdom. KIDNAP, a hi-octane thriller intertwined with deadly kidnapping plot with thrilling action sequences, brings him back again in the business! Pritam, a leading front-runner among chartbusting albums (four in a row) and also reason behind Gadhvi's DHOOM musical success makes his fifth presence of this year with KIDNAP. It also marks the arrival of new composers Sandeep and Sanjeev Vyas with their solitary but significant attribute. Does KIDNAP prove to be another DHOOM for director Sanjay Gandhvi and fifth consecutive success of this year for ''triumphant'' Pritam? Let's find this out!
''Mit Jaaye'', a thriving and rip-roaring number from new set of composers (Sandeep and Sanjeev Vyas) comes out all the way as highly impulsive background number where the inhibited rebellious feel of the protagonist gets highlighted with blistering and burning music. Emerging talent Sandeep Vyas (also lyricist of this song) makes a lively vocal presence in a true ''rock-star'' singing mode where thriving electronic sounds makes an impounding impact in midst of a racy arrangements. It's an impressive invigorating background score track that will be adding substantial meat in the compelling situations of the flick. Its ''rock version'' is high on rock based instrumentals where excessive usage of guitar, drums and keyboards sparks off the proceedings with a flare. The raging ire in the vocals gets a befitting backdrop of equally aggressively pulsating arrangements and this version is likely to be having more takers among urbane-listeners.
Pritam's supreme command over ''femme fatale'' stylized songs has been a strong factor in his success and ''Hey Ya!'' from sensuous sounding Suzy Q comes out as next sizzler on the block. It could have been credited ''S for Soniya'' for better commercial prospects but still this enthralling song is highly amusing in its contents and sounds shades similar to Pritam's ''Sania Badnam'' (APNA SAPNA MONEY MONEY) and ''Zara Zara Touch Me'' (RACE) in its loud squeamish voguish outburst. ''Hey Ya!'' stands tall as next ''hot ''n'' happening'' chartbusting material that lauds the efforts of new singer Suzy Q for her sensuous binge. It's fastidiously slick choreographic moves and alluring trendy musical zing is likely to be making it as next show-stopper in coming days. ''Hey Ya! (House Mix)'' speeds up the proceeding with its energized and accelerated disco thumps and beat-juggling impacts in making it as another hip-shaker for the floors.
Adnan Sami sings out a ''teasing-pleasing'' fun-filled number that comes out with upbeat hip-hop and zing pop arrangements in a lightheartedly composure in ''Haan ji''. This time Pritam's composition may not be as inspiring as it was in his couple of tracks of JUST MARRIED but the flickering arrangements and Sami's modulating baritones’ makes things promising for it to be an audible situational number.
Finally, serenity of romantic emotions erupts out in the soft and supple vocal delights of Shreya Ghoshal in lovable sounding ''Mausam''. Mayur Puri's quizzical verbatim of ''Mausam'' and ''awesome'' gets a mellifluously tranquil backdrop of natural delights of smoothening melodic works. Pritam's composition may not be extraordinarily innovative in its rhythmical flows but jesters out all extravagantly baroque emotions in its mellowed orchestrations. The everlasting soul-sauntering impact in mushy textures is simply delightful for ears and it deservedly deserves a potential cinematic viewing for its viewers.
''Meri Ek Ada Shola'', a situational dancing track with Arabic cum western arrangements comes out as the final attribute from the album. Sunidhi Chauhan, Akriti Kakkar and Sukhwinder Singh voices this sing out that has strong ''Bollywood-climax'' song feel where one expects the arrival of hero in the closing stage of the film. This 70's and 80's ''filmi'' number will be more akin to the deadly feel of the film than anything invigorating for its audio sales prospects.
KIDNAP comes out as the first roadblock in Pritam's dream run of success and ends up as above average album with couple of impressive soundtracks. Soundtracks like ''Hey Ya!'' and ''Mit Jaaye'' hold maximum promise while ''Mausam'' and ''Haanji'' works expressively with the situational needs of this action-packed potboiler. as consequential like SINGH IS KINNG, KISMAT KONNECTION, RACE OR JANNAT but will be working well with the sentiments and feel of the film.
