Director Shaad Ali may be just three film old with the hit SAATHIYA, super hit BUNTY AUR BABLI and his last venture, the forgettable JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM (all under premier production house Yash Raj Films) , but one factor has been constant in all his films; memorable super hit music. In fact except for SAATHIYA, which had music by A.R. Rahman, both his previous ventures had boasted of excellent music by the trio, S-E-L and lyricist par excellent Gulzar has been a constant! One therefore looks forward with huge expectations from their next, KILL DIL
, so let's plug on and check out the audio.
The title track 'Kill Dil
' commences with a brief synopsis of the film, narrated in a lovely poetic style in Gulzar Sahab's
deep husky vocals, and what follows is an exhilarating situational composition. The theme of The GOOD THE BAD THE UGLY finds inspiration in this romantic goon drama. The enigmatic duo, Sonu and Shankar, shine with their respective renditions.
The celebration track, 'Happy Budday
', rendered by Sukhwinder, makes for a nice desi
Punjabi style dance number that celebrates friendship and love. The tune might be a heard before one but the fun atmosphere that S-E-L create through their musical orchestrations make for an interesting hear. CHECK OUT: KILL DIL songs lyrics
' will certainly classify amongst one of the best romantic songs of the year. The multilayered number starts with a lovely 'shaayeri
' by Gulzar, then it follows a ghazal like pattern (tune inspired by 'Husn Walon Se Allah Bachaye
') which then acquires a Punjabi sufi rock/pop shade. The Arijit Singh and Nihira Joshi rendered track is just excellent and kudos to the whole team for the effort.
The retro seventies atmosphere is created perfectly through some superb musical arrangements in the sort of a pre climax dance track, 'Bol Beliya
'. Sunidhi, Shankar and Siddharth Mahadevan whip up the tempo with their cumulative renditions.
Then one day they run into Disha (Parineeti Chopra) at a night club and Dev and Disha fall in love. Bhaiyaji is angry. How can Dev fall in love? And who will do his killing? So Dev has to pretend he is still the bad man when he is around Bhaiyaji and a good man when he is with Disha.
While Dev now refuses to pull the trigger, Tutu does the killing. But then Bhaiyaji is a big don, he is no fool. He is bound to find out the truth.
In between killing and romance there are a lot many songs to keep you interested in the goings-on. But the movie per say is going nowhere.CHECK OUT - Parineeti Chopra: KILL DIL is going to be scary!
It's stylish; Parineeti Chopra looks like a million bucks and both the dudes do a good job as male models, but it is not enough to keep you interested in this 'script less' film.
It looks like scenes from GUNDAY which were edited, or which may not have been shot, have been used here with different actors.
One thing is sure; it will kill your dil
. Enter at your own risk.
