Director Siddharth Anand has always relied on composers Vishal-Shekhar for helming the music of all his films. Right from his debut venture SALAAM NAMASTE to ANJAANA ANJAANI, V-S have always delivered extraordinary music and have proved Siddharth's faith in them right. And with Fox Star Studios' BANG BANG, the canvass is larger, the set up even more lavish in this official remake of the Hollywood blockbuster, KNIGHT AND DAY.
After rocking all with his chartbusting rendition, 'Aao Na
' (HAIDER), Vishal Dadlani comes back with a ace of a dance number 'Tu Meri
', that would certainly be the toast of all the club and dance fanatics. The groovy rhythm hooks instantly (especially the hookline, 'Tu Meri
') and Vishal's rendition is spot on. The lyrics (by Anvita Dutt Guptan) may be functional but they are simple and easy to hum.
The soft serene love ballad, 'Meherbaan
' is a typical V-S style romantic number but one can see that a whole lot of work has been done (especially in the background orchestrations) to give it that special touch. Ash King's mellifluous vocals are a delight and Shipla Rao is her usual enigmatic self while the composer Shekhar too joins in the 'sufi
' Punjabi parts. However what attracts more are the eye candies, super hero and Greek god, Hrithik Roshan, and the gorgeous glam diva Katrina Kaif romancing in the scenic locales of Greece. An audio visual delight.CHECK OUT: Bang Bang - Songs Lyrics
' reprise has been rendered superbly by Shekhar Ravjiani who gives the song a unique flavor with his stylish vocals.
If only someone would have put the audience to sleep during the entire duration of the film. Dar ke aage, jeet hai,
says Hrithik in one scene, obviously referring to a soft drink brand he is endorsing.
To the paying audience I would say, ''Bang Bang ke peeche thaka hua dhimaag hai.''
To borrow an oft-repeated line said by Hrithik, ''Kohinoor Churaya hai, Kuch toh izzat kar.''
Paying public hai bhai saab, kuch toh izzat kar!
