A joint production venture of Anubhav Sinha's Benaras Media Works, EROS and Alumbra, WARNING 3D, directed by Gurmeet Singh, is a stylish underwater, youthful adventure, thriller. Music has always been the highlight of all Anubhav Sinha directed films like TUM BIN, DUS, RA.ONE etc and have provided us with some memorable, melodious and chartbusting compositions. And so one does expect some good music from the team of composers - Sharib-Toshi, Meet Bros Anjjan and John Stewart. So let us play on and check out.
Its Mika Singh belting out a chartbuster, 'Tell Me How Much
', in his characteristic and lovable, 'bindaas
' and full on attitude style. Fresh talent Poorbi provides the oomph factor in this infectious dance number but its Mika's show all the way. The new style prepositioning track would be loved by the youth as even the lyrics too are identifiable and interesting with a nice mix of simple Hindi and English. The music video (featuring Mika) doing the rounds has the unmistakable Anubhav Sinha stamp of quality and class, and is sure to appeal to the target audience.
It's been a while since we had a lovable track like 'Pappu Can't Dance Saala
' and it won't be an exaggeration to say that 'Chikadanga
' is almost in the same league. The reggae style situational and very 'hat-ke
' birthday song depicts the buddy bonhomie amongst the leads and is sung in an almost cute nursery rhyme style with minimal background arrangements. John Stewart, Sharib-Toshi, Madhurima Tuli and Manjari Fadnis (an accomplished singer as in 'Azhagaana Neeyum
' with Naresh Iyer - MUTHIRAI) join in to wish, and they do well. However it's the lyrics that is the real winner here as the sweet sarcasm of friends, who wish the protagonist happy birthday is funny and apt. 'Na kisi ne dua ki, Na kisi ne maanga
'! CHECK OUT: Anubhav Sinha - WARNING 3D can't be categorized into any genre!
There is a second version 'Chikadanga dub step
' as well which makes for a good second hear and is a tad more pacy and has additional background techno music.
Rockstar James may have had a few rock based numbers to his credit in Bollywood but he is still remembered for his very own, 'Bheegi Bheegi
' (GANGSTER), and one is sure that 'Bebasi
' will provide him with one more memorable track. Sung in his irrepressible, characteristic rock style (with haunting background chorals provided by Aditi Paul), the kind that has made him immensely popular in the sub-continent. 'Bebasi
' as is evident from the title is a hard rock based situational number and should be used in the tense background situations. Lyrics, which talk about helplessness in a hopeless situation are very apt.
Tense ocean waves simulated sounds with superb percussions usher in the Sonu Nigam and Illahama Qasimova rendered, 'Taakeedein
', which can be classified as the title track as it conveys the mood and essence of the film, WARNING. It's a very unconventional Sonu Nigam in this situational dramatic thrilling rock based track that does send a chill down the spine and goes well, in fact, adds to the narrative. Haunting background female chorals lends the required mystery. The all rock chorus is another plus and all this easily makes 'Taakeedein
' the classiest track of the album.
The album ends, as is the trend these days, with 'The Warning Mashup
', and it's a good fusion/ potpourri of bits and pieces of all the compositions from the film and makes for an interesting hear. CHECK OUT: Anubhav Sinha's 3D WARNING to be subsidized by Fiji government!
The audio of WARNING not only lives up to the expectations from an Anubhav Sinha venture but also provides solid entertainment through classy music that has many different shades, variety and class. The two rock based tracks, 'Bebasi
' and 'Taakeedein
', are our picks and the light hearted 'Chikadanga
' and 'Tell Me How Much
' should surely climb the charts, and the album should ensure a decent opening when the film releases next Friday, 27th September to be precise.
