There is not much expectation(s) from Reel Life Entertainment's O TERI produced by Atul and Alvira Agnihotri (brother-in-law and sister of Salman Khan). The music has been composed by GJ Singh, who is a new entrant in Hindi cinema but is a known name in the Punjabi music scene, and additionally there are two more composers, famous Punjabi rapper Hard Kaur and Rajiv Bhalla. So let's check out what they have to offer us in terms of musical entertainment.
Starting off with the flagship song, 'Butt Patlo
', the dance number is a peppy Punjabi pop type composition, and it does boast of some upbeat rhythm and good arrangements. But it is let down by some very ordinary lyrics (once again a fascination with the derriere after 'Tooh
') which try to be youth identifiable but somehow do not click. Jaspreet Jasz and Roshni Baptist put up a good show.
The foot-tapping romantic dance track, 'Ankhan Vich
' showcases the composer's (GJ Singh) vocal prowess with good support from Jaspreet Jasz and Neeti Mohun. Relying more on synth and techno gimmicks like auto tuning, the song is as contemporary and youth pleasing as it comes. CHECK OUT: O Teri - Songs Lyrics
' is another dance number but it has absolutely nothing new to offer, neither in terms of tune (Inspired by the title track of BADE MIYAN CHOTE MIYAN) or either the arrangements, or even the lyrics (except for the title of the track!). Mika is in his elements but he does not get scope to try anything novel. He is supported by Jaspreet Jasz and Lulia Vantur.
The remix of 'Umbakkum
' is better than the original and the heightened rhythm does lift the song.
Later, they would have stitched the scenes together at the editing table to create a story and finally, when they found out that things were not as good as they should be on screen, they would have recorded a few songs and then randomly inserted them between scenes.
There you have it... O TERI the movie.

: I was quite impressed with Bilal Amrohi. That guy has screen presence and is a natural. If only he had put in less lipstick and even lesser lip gloss...
