After a super duper hit outing (both musically and commercially) in QUEEN, Bollywood's latest queen Kangana Ranaut's next is a black comedy, REVOLVER RANI. Presented by Wave Cinema and with names like ace filmmaker Tigmanshu Dhulia associated with it, this unconventional film about a female outlaw and her love, based in the hinterland promises some 'hatke
' music by Sanjeev Srivastava. So let's check out the soundtrack of REVOLVER RANI and get blasted!
A totally situational, zany 'mindblastic
' title track, 'Revolver Rani
', presents a very interesting and clear picture of character of the female lead, Alka aka Revolver Rani and also succeeds in highlighting her story in a very engaging manner. Usha Uthup is in her elements as always, her strong vocals suit the character to the tee. The retro feel is well etched out through some 'dhinchak
' RD Burman style of music and a Pran voiceover.
Piyush Mishra's 'Thaayein Kare Katta
' takes one straight into the hinterland and is full of dark humour and once again just like the title track this number too is situational. It gives a good insight into the flirtatious (or shall we say, manizer) nature of the female lead. The song does manage to bring a smile.
It's vintage Asha Bhonsle in the excellent love ballad (nazam in Urdu), 'Kaafi Nahin Chaand
'. Kudos to the living legend for the treat. Shaheen Iqbal's lovely lyrics add to the romantic mood.
It's once again a visit into the hinterland with the war cry of Chambal, 'Chal Lade Re Bhaiya
' which is another song that will act as narrative to the plot. Piyush Mishra's robust, rustic, satirical vocals are the USP of the track and he gets good support from Abhishek Mukerjee and Mayur Vyas.

Lovely piano notes, guitar strums commence 'Sulgi Huyi Hai Raakh
', a soft rock track that is as cliched as they come. The semi- philosophical situational track is sung by the composer, Sanjeev whose bad diction are a letdown, although his vocal prowess is impressive.
The wedding celebration number, 'Banna Banni
' is a nice, North Indian folk based easy on the ears number. Rekha Bhardwaj is a pro at these numbers and her rendition adds 'chaar chaand
' to the composition.
'I Am Brutal
' is a highly zany, rock based number sung in a very funny manner (on purpose hoarse vocals) by Sanjeev Srivastava. Presenting another facet of the lead protagonist the lyrics are full of dark sarcasm and instill a smile (I am brutal, any doubt go and Google).
Then comes Das into her life; she falls in love and Das is trapped. His Bollywood dream goes into a limbo when he is caught two-timing Alka.CHECK OUT: Kangana Ranaut - Awards are not my priority
You are then treated to some staple scenes necessary in a film of this genre before the final brutal twist in the tale.
REVOLVER RANI may have looked good at the planning stage; the final product is abysmal.
