Pritam Chakraborty, the name signifies the musical insanity of uninterrupted trendy hip-hop numbers and the magnetism of honey coated guitar strummed love ballads. This time the mood is different, the ambience is genteel, the feel is cordial but the musical thrill and ardor continues with whimsically hilarious family drama JUST MARRIED. He started with modesty and flair in MERE YAAR KI SHADDI and the rumbustious musical marriage celebrations rejuvenates in this presentation with full bloom. Pritam has shown his consistency with PNC (Pritish Nandy Communications) with hat trick of musical successes (EK KHILADI EK HASEENA, ANKAHEE, PYAR KE SIDE EFFECTS) and JUST MARRIED makes it four in succession. If PYAR KE SIDE EFFECTS thronged the unexplored theme of “commitment phobia” with unpredicted success then JUST MARRIED voyages into “after effects” of married lives. Meghna Gulzar prefers “feel good” factor formula to lure viewers as she wields the microphone after over ambitious but ostracized concept of “surrogate motherhood” in FILHAAL. Fardeen Khan and Esha Deol gives their best shot as lead players after being written off in weirdly conceived PYARE MOHAN. Experienced Gulzar punches spicy flavors of “quizzical” one liner’s and sprinkles misty aroma of sweet “n” saccharine romance through his dazzling lyrical work.
Bingo! Party fest galore in gleaming family bash after the families settles for “fool and final” settlement in hail “n” hearty “Baat Pakki”. Gulzar’s teasing lyrics takes a bow at esoteric marital blows in quizzical manner with dash of snazzy hip-hop stuff. Shaan croons to delight with vocally ebullient notes perfectly matched with rhythmic beats. Neeraj Shridar (lead vocalist of “Bombay Vikings”) ecstatically youthful thump makes sure that this makes his place “Pakki” in tinsel town.
Pritam adds more colours by refurbishing it in second version and finally remixing it with full disco aesthetics. Sukhwinder Singh accompanies Shaan while Sunidhi Chauhan and Mahalxmi Iyer cherish these euphoric moments with subtle pace in “Baat Pakki-2”.

Philosophically affluent, the messages and preaching of Saint Kabir makes soulful cry in heart piercing “Doha”. Daler Mehndi’s outcry fine set of piously refined couplets with traditional lyrical set up in soft and somber mode. Delightfully soulful treat but classy!
Soft n silky feminine vocals grace the occasion after loads of salubrious musical notes, beats and rhythms in lovable “Gudgudee”. Sunidhi Chauhan resplendent vocals smoothen for this dreamy musical journey but fail to encapsulate the uninhibited innocent desires. Pritam misses the bus this time and it fall short of a desired love ballad.
Mellifluous flute notes, synchronized guitar strums and Sonu Nigam immaculate vocals gives many reasons to smile for the musical bonanza waiting in melodious “Jagte Raho”. Pritam showers bountiful of melodious nostalgic moments with delightful soul stirring mellow stringed notes in this vociferously entertaining number. Gulzar’s mischievously romantic lyrics emote out the nervous advances and nerve-racking romantic vibes in chirpy phrases and hilariously delivered one-liners. Lovable to croon, sweet n saccharine for ears and finally a super hit solo from ever-talented Sonu Nigam!
Scintillatingly festive, loud and pompous, this marriage celebration will bring house down with thunderous bang. “Ram Milaye Jodi” gives album a befitting number for its traditional and peppy lyrical treat and energetic vocal display. Folksy Sukhwinder’s ear splitting, Shaan’s subtle n mellow and Sunidhi Chauhan’s vibrant voices throats out the jubilant extravaganza in style. Pritam promises chartbuster and spices up the number with remix and sad version.
Hip-shaking disco passions are uproarious with DJ Eric Pillai churning out “club mix” for disco freaks in “Ram Milaye Jodi (remix)”. It fuels up the passion for dance floors and should make itself desirable on marriage celebrations.
Sukhwinder’s brief depressing voice gives album a finale in sentimental “Ram Milaye Jodi (sad)”.

This will bring positively catalyzes the “after effects of marriage” concept and will add one more hit to Pritam’s and PNC credit.
