CASH comes out as showstopper, a rollicking maneuver of stylized action thrills delivered through racy and vibrant musical entertainment. It’s a big occasion where “trance” musical genre strikes “full-size” charismatic presence in a contemporary Bollywood offering. “Trance”, the funky musical format, is basically a combination of various electronic music such as ambient music, techno, and house, which collectively creates a “trance” (bizarre) like state on floors. Its formation is largely construed with the concoction of repetitious morphing beats and agonizing melodies which would make it exceptional for nightclubs and discotheques. Vishal-Shekhar’s innovative move has prospered back their commercial viability and positively be lauded for their enterprising and pioneering effort in foraying into new territories with great success.
It’s “trance” “n” “hip-hop” mania all over as meticulously penned “hook” melody of “Cash to da right to me, Cash to da left to me…” forms a zany loop with pulsating electronic sounds, throbbing drum beats coagulating effectively with energized hip-hop to create a emotions of “bizarre” in the title track “Cash”. It’s analogous to Pritam’s “Dhoom Machale” (DHOOM) though it is intrinsically electronic and trance feast. Sunidhi Chauhan’s svelte “n” screechy vocals steep in with kick drum on every down-beat with added percussive elements to give it a rollicking appeal. Vishal-Shekhar is the resounding back-up vocals with madcap thrust while their lyrical flow is similar to loquaciously penned “Sabse Bada Rupaiya” (BLUFFMASTER). Get into the groove and get set for visual spectacle of sky diving, kite surfing, skate boarding where this number works as signature theme track with spine-chilling effect.
Femme-fatale groovy thump rules the show as the hi-voltage trance, vibrant “bhangra” and trendy electronic sounds collages to give bootylicious babes many reasons to rock the floors in piquantly punched “Mind Blowing Mahiya”. It can be upbeat elucidation of “Beedi” (OMKARA) or refurbished “Crazy Kiya Re” (DHOOM 2) with a peculiar “trance” electronic effect but overall its catchy rhythmic patterns works sinusoidally with its vigorous thump. Sunidhi delivers one of her captivating dancing tracks but is apposite more for nightclubs for its repetitive electronic sounds that work aggressively with its flavorful drum beat effects. Play it loud and feel the invigorating “trance” musical effect that proves enthralling to senses. Simply mind blowing!
“Na Pucho” brings the flavor of “fusion” pop as many genres; styles make effective noises and sounds in creating an enthused tempo for a rip-roaring dancing track. The collective musical punches of repetitive melodic synthesizer phrases, loud percussions, and frenzied rap with tinge of Arabic music are streamlined to perfection in delivering a sensuous dance track. Sunidhi’s vocals contort to the desires of “club” dancing tracks where a troupe swirls in tandem along with lead performer in a cyclical rhythmic flow. Soundtracks like “Deedar De” (DUS), “Mahi Ve” (KAANTE) and “Ishq Kabhi Kariyo Na” (MUSAFIR) had similar raunchy dancing appeal but this track has innovative electronic sound appeal that should work positively for album and film prospects.
After “fusion” pop, its folksy “fusion” splurging out with pompous zest in “Naughty Naughty”, a spicy “n” peppery folk base “trance” track crooned superciliously by Anushka “Golmaal” Manchandani. It’s gleeful “folk” base soundtrack where traditional “Rajasthani” lingo forms backdrop while energized hip-hop and silken throaty vocals enlightens senses with its pungent fervor. Anushka Manchandani punches out a typical “Ila Arun” soundtrack in an electronica cum pop mode where the improvised synthesizer works with effect reverb and delay effect. Its slick choreography will be an engrossing affair as Vishal’s spicy lyrics delivers an amusing journey for party freaks. Lately successful soundtracks like “Beedi”, “Namak” and “Sajanji Vari Vari” had intense and passionate folk base that worked significantly for its connoisseurs and if this clicks, then we can assume another chartbuster in making. Rock it!
Like the raunchy and seductive “Na Pucho”, “Rehem Kare” comes as another seductress feverish number that is enriched with hip-hop and electronically profound musical base effect. Panchi Jalonvi’s have expressive binge but its resonating hip-hop, impetuously punched “trance” music that forms its core element. Sunidhi Chauhan is undoubtedly “the chosen one” as she comes up with another racy and shrill paced DJ’s favorite that well can played loud at discos. Relish it for its snazzy “techno” beat structure that forms amiable link-up with energized hip-hop in making it “club” mix special treat.
Its synthesizer mania all the way as dissimilar electronic sounds clash and crash with affluently punched hip-hop and “bhangra” flavors impulsively to create a bedlam of romanticism in “Zara Bachke (Kickin Rockin It Mix)”. When there is a raging pop diva Anushka along with deadly duo Vishal-Shekhar at the helm of affairs, it’s believed to be quintessential form of display. Its super-high “beats per minute” tempo and frivolous electronic sound display makes it a DJ’s delight affair and surely it will high on charts in coming days.
Vishal-Shekhar finally made it! The upbeat and buoyant musical force of tinsel town raises their mantle as they chisels new electronic beat structure mingled with rich blend of “trance” and hip-hop genre style of musical formats. CASH rejuvenates duo back in contention for top slot and it’s a swashbuckling comeback after series of mediocre work that decimated their ranking in the marquee. The album works more like a “party album” and surely it will inundate a passion for “trance” musical appeal in other film albums.
