That director Sajid Khan's films have always provided wholesome entertainment, with music that is equally popular and entertaining, is something that the audience has taken for granted. So naturally one expects that composer Himesh Reshammiya too will come up with a score that is universally appealing (like Sajid's films and its music) and provide some solid entertainment. No heavy duty stuff here, so let us get on and check out the audio of this laugh riot that promises nine times the fun!
Neeraj Shridhar and Neeti Mohan provide the HUMSHAKALS album a chartbusting start with 'Caller Tune
', a light, catchy and instantly likeable dance number that hooks due to its lovely rhythm and imaginative and identifiable lyrics (Sameer). It's cute picturisation too adds to the charm and the song has already hit it off with the youths and kids.
Shalmali Kholgade and Himesh come together for an item number, 'Piya Ke Bazaar Mein
'. The song has strong inspirations from the classical hit, 'Thade Rahiyo
' (PAKEEZAH) and 'Aaya Aaya Atariya Pe Koi Chor
' (MERA GAON MERA DESH) especially in the chorus. And one expected Himesh to come up with some original tune here for the item number, considering Sajid's last one 'Anarkali Disco Chali
' was a super hit. CHECK OUT: HUMSHAKALS songs lyrics
Another one for the dance floor, 'Just Look Into My Eyes
', is a catchy number with a nice flowing tune, but the highlight are the lyrics which are a fine blend of English and Hindi. Ash King and Neeti Mohun do the needful, although the song is nothing to shout home about. Pleasant as long as it lasts.
In HOUSEFULL it was the chartbusting 'Papa Jag Jayega'
which was followed by 'Right Now
' in HOUSEFULL 2. And we have another one is the same corridor 'Barbaad Raat
', though not in the same league as the above two. The song is inspired from Laura Branigan's classic hit 'Self Control
'. Lyrics are fresh, humorous and identifiable by Gen X. Shalmali Kholgade and Sanam Puri render the average number.
A fun, light hearted chhed-chhad number, a propositioning track, 'Khol De Dil Ki Khidki Khol
' is also fun to listen. Mika is in form and Palak provides the glam quotient. The three stars of HUMSHAKALS, Saif, Ritesh and Ram Kapoor, dressed up as girls and flirting with their counterparts makes for a hilarious watch. CHECK OUT: HUMSHAKALS dialogues
Sajid Khan at his zany best and what better than 'Hum Pagal Nahin Hai
' to convey about what one can expect from this out and out hilariously funny movie. Himesh renders this number with absolute ease, mixing emotions, drama with his superb voice modulations. Ode to Laxmikant -Pyarelal style of music, and lyrics which are too zany yet clever forming the basis of this outrageously funny song and it does manage to bring a smile on the face of the listeners.
Summing up, the audio of Sajid Khan's HUMSHAKALS makes for a good listen and is fun as long as it lasts. But since Sajid has himself raised the bar higher and higher with the audio(s) of his subsequent films, one did expect some real wholesome entertainment and chartbusting music as is the norm. Unfortunately, Himesh fails to provide that. Our picks, 'Caller Tune
' and (surprisingly!) 'Hum Pagal Nahin Hain
', for the entertainment quotient. Having said that, the film will surely open to good houses when it releases on 20th June as the audio is slowly getting popular, especially 'Caller Tune
'. Music Review Rating Chart :-
