AMIT SAHNI KI LIST, featuring the super talented (former) stand-up comedian and now film star, Vir Das is a sitcom, and one expects the music to be light, fresh, witty and innovative, as per the requirement. A host of composers, both young and experienced like Raghu Dixit and Palash Muchhal etc are a part of the proceedings, so let us checkout the album.
The first track, 'Ab Mein Kya Karoon
', tries hard to be funny, but the inane lyrics (Ankur Tiwari) and the oft repeated funny situations fails to save the track, despite a decent rockish tune and high pitched singing by Raghu Dixit.
Next up, 'What The Fark
', starts like HUMPTY SHARMA KI DULHANIA's 'Saturday Saturday
', but thankfully changes track later. It is another routine hip-hop track, despite the presence of Rahul Vaidya, Amit Mishra and Aditi Singh Sharma. The repetitive 'What The Fark
', an obvious take on the WTF phrase, fails to tickle the funny bone. CHECK OUT: AMIT SAHNI KI LIST song lyrics
The actor himself takes the mike (also pens the lyrics) for 'Pyaar Hai Kutti Cheez
' and does a decent job. The all out rockish track is strongly inspired by the evergreen rock classic, 'We Will We Will Rock You'. There is a reference to Manali's (in) famous drug, Malana cream!
The next number, 'Aisi Hi Hoon Main
', by all in one, singer, composer and lyricist Shivi R. Kashyap. The song introduces the main female lead and establishes her character and the tune and mood is once again a stereotypical one, heard before countless times.
Palash Muchhal's 'Sargoshi
' is a routine soft romantic ditty rendered by Palak Muchhal and Anirudh Bhola who do a decent enough job. But one expected the young and talented composer to have come up with some fresh tune and out of the box lyrics.
Raghu Dixit's 'Waakeyi
' is a half decent track that Nikhil D'Souza spoils it with some bad vocal controls but thankfully Shruti Pathak renders the soft serene love ballad with ease. The use of simple Urdu and Hindi by lyricist is also the highlight of the track.
It's a real delight to hear Sonu's eclectic vocals rendering the sad separation track, 'Parchhai
'. Though slightly reminiscent or in the same corridor as Sonu's super hit track from DIL CHAHTA HAI 'Tanhaai
' the song does leave a mark. Both Palash and Palak Muchhal do a good job as composer and lyricist respectively. CHECK OUT: AMIT SAHNI KI LIST dialogues
The violin recital by Karthik Aiyer is an all out instrumental that may find place in the scheme of things. It tries to do a Rahman like crescendo and additionally throws in sitar fusion. Good till it lasts.
To sum up, had it not been for Sonu Nigam's superlative singing ('Parchhai
'), there is nothing much that one can praise about the audio of AMIT SAHNI KI LIST. The songs will not add much value to the film when it releases all over next Friday.Music Review Rating Chart :-
