Producer Vashu Bhagnani aka Producer No. 1 has been associated with a number of films that have had very popular music, especially those featuring Govinda. Recently his F.A.L.T.Uand AJAB GAZABB LOVE, featuring his promising son Jackky Bhagnani, too had some nice music to boast of, especially F.A.L.T.U (Sachin-Jigar) which was a commercial success as well, although AJAB GHAZABB LOVE (Sajid-Wajid) failed to emulate the success of F.A.L.T.U. In this album, the masters of masala filmy music, Sajid-Wajid and the popular and talented Sundar C. Babu from down south are entrusted with the task of composing . So let's see how the two perform in this Tamil remake directed by Priyadarshan!

Its classic Hindustani arrangements complete with 'sufi', 'qawwali' and lovely melody that adorns 'Dil Ko Aaya Sukoon' reminiscent of 'Tere Mast Mast' (DABANGG). Rahat Fateh Ali Khan sails through the composition and is accompanied by Hiral Brahmbhatt. The 'antara' though has a very heard before feel of the seventies Pran style 'qawwali'. Sameer's lyrics are purely filmy and routine, but still the song sounds good because of Rahat.

We next check out, 'Govinda Aala Re', rendered by Wajid, a heavily promoted track that has some nice innovative choreography and excellent dancing by Jackky Bhagnani. However one feels that the tune that Sajid-Wajid have adopted here (heard during the 'dahi handi festivals) has been so very oft repeated that the novelty value is lacking, but overall fits into the scheme of things.

Another song, 'Shambho Shiv Shambho', is devoted to Lord Shiva, and is a 'tandav' style racy dance track that has been adopted from the original Tamil film, NADODIGAL composed by Sundar C Babu. Rendered by Sukhwinder in his characteristic energetic, full of fury and high pitched vocals. The lyrics too convey the motivational as well rebellious and courageous feel of the protagonist who never gives up against odds and fight for the beloved.






'Shiv Shambho', the second version rendered on an even higher pitch by Shankar Mahadevan, who had sung the original Tamil version ('Sambho Siva Sambho') as well. Composed by Sundar C. Babu this one is more basic and more Hindustani in nature. One cannot help but remember Rajnikanth's adrenaline pumping 'Shiva Shambho' from NINAITHALE INNIKUM (1979) while listening to this track.

The song that celebrates the spirit of friendship and camaraderie is the breezy 'Yaaron Aisa Bhi' composed by Sundar C. Babu and sung by well by Salim Merchant and nice back up chorals. It is quite inspirational and situational and will aid in the narrative.

CHECK OUT: RANGREZZ- Jackky's 'desi' version of Gangnam Style

The audio album of RANGREZZ offers nothing new in terms of melody, treatment or innovation and especially since it's a love story one expected more from the soundtrack. Sajid-Wajid's 'Dil Ko Aaya Sukoon' still remains our pick followed by Sundar C. Babu's devotional track, which is definitely the saving grace of the album. One also wonders why the makers have not incorporated the internationally popular 'Gangnam Style' (whose rights they have procured) as part of the album and used it to further the prospects.
