Director David Dhawan is an institution in himself where it comes to comedies and his numerous super hit films (specially starring Govinda and Salman) undoubtedly made him the filmmaker No 1! The music of most of his films has been mass appealing and one can still hear remixes of countless of his chartbusters doing the rounds in pubs, discos and parties. For his next, starring his own son, Varun Dhawan (of STUDENT OF THE YEAR fame), MAIN TERA HERO, David has employed the services of his ever trustworthy composers, Sajid-Wajid who have provided massy, chartbusting music for the director in his previous films like MUKHSE SHAADI KAROGI, PARTNER and CHASHME BADDOOR. So let's see whether the duo get it right this time as well!
Sajid-Wajid get it right straight away with 'Besharmi Ki Height
', a vibrant foot-tapping dance number that is universally appealing. The electric guitars, lovely techno rhythm, DJ scratches and auto tuning (in parts) of vocals of lead singers, Benny Dayal and Shalmali Kholgode all add to the party mood.
Quite a lot of work has been put by DJ Notorious to make 'Besharmi Ki Height
' remix more club friendly and at times it sounds even better than the original. CHECK OUT: Main Tera Hero Movie Dialogues
Amitabh Bachchan's super hit number from KAALIA, 'Jahan Teri Ye Nazar Hai
' seems to be the inspiration behind the David-Govinda style prepositioning number, 'Palat - Tera Hero Idhar Hai
' in the 'mukhda
' (though the 'antara
' is unique and good) and the synthesized signature tune is inspired from 'Disco Station
'. Arijit Singh shows that he is adept at singing all types of songs and his emotive and zesty rendition is the highlight of the track.
The next number, 'Shanivaar Raati
' sung by Arijit Singh and Shalmali Kholgode is fun, ched chaad track about lovers not being able to live without each other, in the same corridor as Amiatbh Bachchan's 'Tu Maike Mat Jaiyo
' (PUKAAR). The interesting and funny lyrics (Kumaar) are USP of the track though once again the tune that Sajid-Wajid use is heard before and is reminiscent of 'Madam Aap Ki Kasam Saari Raat Padhte Hum
The remix of 'Shanivaar Raati
' by DJ Chetas is more pacy and more dance friendly with lots of rap and hip hop.
Javed Ali and Neeti Mohan come together for a love duet 'Galat Baat Hai
' which is a situational song with lovers putting before each other their problems and grievances. The song has a good melody although the ill harmonious background arrangements (with something similar to Jackson's I Am Bad playing all the time) is a mood spoiler.

Summing up, Sajid-Wajid traverse the tried and tested path to success and one can certainly say that they have been instructed to compose massy and entertaining music keeping in mind the Govinda-David type of melodies and music. 'Besharmi Ki Height
' and 'Palat Tera Hero Idhar Hai
' are our picks and the decent music will ensure decent opening for the film when it releases on 4th April, 2014.
