Salman Khan,Shilpa Shetty
By Ronak Kotecha
Salman Khan and Shilpa Shetty are probably going through one of their most excellent career phases. For Salman though, such phases have come and gone, but post Dhadkan its Shilpa who has been busy accepting accolades for her reverberating performances and not to mention her Hour-Glass figure. There is one thing common in Salman and Shilpa?.both have undoubtedly the best bodies in Bollywood. Moviemakers have seemed to have suddenly realized the chemistry between the two and there is an array of Salman-Shilpa starrers going on floors or hitting the silver screens.
One such movie to join the league is Bubby Kent's 'Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar'. Bubby Kent's movies have Salman as a constant while the actresses vary. His preceding movies include 'Chandramukhi' that starred Salman Khan opposite the ex - Numero Uno Sridevi. The movie was not great shakes at the Box-Office, but did have elements of a hit. He then came up with 'Jaanam Samjha Karo' starring Salman Khan and Urmila Matondkar, which was reasonably successful while its music was a rage.He is now waiting in the wings with his latest offering 'Shaadi Kar Ke Phas Gaya Yaar' which stars Salman Khan and Shilpa Shetty.
Bharat Shah is back with a bang. This one is his presentation and Mr. Moneybags seldom goes wrong with his choice of movies to finance. K.S. Adhiyaman directs the movie while Sajid-Wajid and Daboo Malik direct the music.The music of Kent's movies has always been more than just good. Let us navigate through the musical course of Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaar' and see if there are more things in common than just Salman Khan.
'Deewane Dil Ko Jaane Jaa' makes quite a decent start with a familiar tune and friendly music, this one is registers rather easily. However, the track does not have anelement of resilience. Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam do what is expected of them. Shabbir Ahmed's lyrics are ordinary, but nonetheless they go well with the track. The beats and the orchestration of the track are a plus while the obsolete melody and feel are major setbacks.
The track that comes next is the best in every department. 'Taaron ko Mohabbat' is the one that has an astoundingly delightful melody with modern orchestration,particularly the beats. The echoing sounds of Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik add to the divinity of this idyllic composition. Visually too the track does look fresher than others do and must say that Salman and Shilpa make quite conspicuous pair. Lyrically, the track is meaningful and aptly worded.
'Dil Ye Behelta Nahi Hai' is a regualar Sonu Nigam - Sunidhi Chauhan baby with modern pulsation and treatment. The tune of the track is catchy if you happen to tune in but not something that you cannot do without. Salim Bijnori's lyrics are fair enough, but you may not remember them vividly.
The title track # 1 is a short and crisp note by 'Abhijeet' conveying how a regular infatuation between a boy and a girl leads to a Wedlock that eventually turns out to be a bumpy ride of fun and distress for some. Guest Lyricist and composer Manohar Iyer and P. Sameer succeed in entertaining (especially married men) to quite an extent.
The full version of the title track however is much better and much more energetic. Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan fight out a sort of battle of the sexes in this one. The swift pace of the track is super and the lyrics by Jalees Sherwani are droll and witty enough to make an interesting and entertaining listening.
'Tujhi Se Mujhe Pyaar Hai - Tujhi Pe Aetbaar Hai' is a Sunidhi solo and obviously, no points for guessing, this one is an Item Number. Salim Bijnori pens average lyrics and Daboo Malik gives an average melody. Then again, all 3 together at least make the track worth giving an earshot.
'Kuch Bhi Nahi Tha' is yet another winner on the album. It's been long since we've heard Hariharan's velvety and emotive vocals stirring our hearts. This love duet just fills the void and with Alka Yagnik's absolute vocal support, it more than does. A tuneful harmony by Sajid-Wajid and evocative lyrics by Jalees Sherwani are as just as good.
Alike other Bubby Kent movies, the music of 'Shaadi Kar Ke Phas Gaya Yaar' is gleaming with melodies and if propped up with tact and acumen it can be snapped up to reap profits. The major factor that can caustically pin the movie is its slightly exhausted and delayed look, which creates such intractable block in the minds of the audiences that they smell little freshness and this can eventually have an adverse effect on the overall business of the movie including the music.
