Sequel to the popular kid film BHOOTNATH, BHOOTNATH RETURNS' music has been making headlines for a while now and the reason for the above is, Yo Yo Honey Singh, who happens to be the composer here along with Meet Bros Anjjan, both flying high after the super success of their last musical outing, RAGINI MMS 2. Experienced Ram Sampath and a relatively fresh name Palash Muchhal too have been roped in for this musical fantasy children drama which also happens to be political potboiler, very topical indeed. Since BHOOTNATH RETURNS is a T-Series offering (along with legendary B R Films), one does expect some high quality chartbusting music from the host of composers. Let's start our spooky musical journey and check out the latest from India's premier musical production company.
It's carnival like party music that sets the ball rolling with 'Party Toh Banti Hai
', a superlative rhythmic dance number that is a sure shot chartbuster. The song has shades of 'Pag Ghughroo Baandh
' in between but only for a short while. Meet Bros Anjjan show their mastery once again after RAGINI MMS 2 and they, along with Mika Singh, will surely set the dance floors on fire with their rendition. Even the politically motivated theme of the song is made very interesting through some superb lyrics. 'Party Toh Banti Hai'
remix by DJ Kiran featuring Abhi-Shree and Mika makes for a good repeat here. CHECK OUT: Bhoothnath Returns Movie Dialogues
Temple bells and superb synthesized spooky rhythm commences party song, 'Party with Bhootnath
' Yo Yo style which is in keeping with the fun scary mood of the film. Yo Yo is in form as usual, churning out a party song that would be loved by the kids.
Ram Sampath's 'Har Har Gange
' disappoints due to its oft repeated Punjabi folk based tune. Even the 'qawwali
' touch is heard before. Aman Trikha sings with lots of zest and his rendition along with the humorous lyrics are the highlights of the track. But the situational song may translate well on screen.
'Har Har Gange
' remix by DJ Kiran is a space filler.
Soft piano notes commence 'Sahib
', a prayer song which is a sort of a call to the almighty to make the world a better place, in fact utopian! Some soft rock and Hindustani fusion (flutes are superb) make the song a good hear. Lyrics are master piece as they perfectly etch out a world in which all will live happily in peace and harmony. Rituraj's poor diction plays a spoiler here and one misses the king of sufi, Kailash Kher, who would have been a better choice. CHECK OUT: Bhoothnath Returns - Songs Lyrics
Ram Sampath redeems himself with 'Dharavi Rap
' which is simply superb. Parth S Bhalerao and Anish are excellent; the rap is highly entertaining as it mingles super hit Hindi songs in a conversational type number, typical Mumbaiya lingo. It would be a definite treat to watch the kinds perform this number on the big screen as the confidence of the child artists oozes through this situational number.
The audio of BHOOTNATH RETURNS is a fun and entertaining musical fare and two party numbers, 'Party Toh Banti Hai
' and 'Party with Bhootnath'
are our picks. The extensive promotion that the audio is receiving will surely auger well for the film when it releases all over on 11th April, 2014.
