After making a swashbuckling presence in musical scenario with the success of MISSION ISTAANBUL, producer Ekta Kapoor, the country's most renowned TV baron, makes another spirited move in the marquee through comical action pot boiler C KKOMPANY. The album brings Bappa Lahiri, son of Bappi Lahiri back in the credits again after he made a splendid debut in, hit album DUS KAHANIYAAN. Veteran Anand Raj Anand (ARA) joins him as the second composer and the album churns out in the format of 'masala' music, showcasing a blend of funky and hip-hop music. C KKOMPANY follows the musical trend of upbeat comical thrillers but can it match up to the standards of comical super-hits like APNA SAPNA MONEY MONEY, PARTNER etc. Let's find this out!

Bappa Lahiri makes the thrilling fun frolicking comical acts in 'Khoka', an out and out family affair as he pitches his father Bappi Lahiri, sister Reema Lahiri along with roguish sounding Mika Singh as lead vocalists for the song. 'Khoka' (meaning 'crore' in Mumbaiya lingo) is a humorously punched fun song where the significance of wealth and money is emoted out with Shabbir Ahmed's frantically flashy wordings. This one comes out as glitzy promotional feature number where one can expect all hot 'n' happening events and characters of the flick splashing out their maneuvers in hilarious shades. Bappi Lahiri makes engrossing vocal moves with chirpy one-liners (similar to 'Bombai Nagariya' (TAXI NO 9211) while Reema Lahiri and Mika Singh's peculiar sounding vocals add to the zest. The fun continues in its 'club remix' with extra zestful thrust as the tempo is accelerated in a mix and match of DJ claps and scratches.

Anand Raj Anand (ARA) has been a prolific composer in Punjabi lingo tracks and 'Speaker Baje' comes out as one of his finest traditional 'bhangra' number that has been spiced with 'disco-bhangra' cultured musical arrangements. ARA is multifaceted this time by being vocalist, lyricist and composer and makes an infectiously thunderous chemistry with boisterous Sunidhi Chauhan in delivering out an intoxicating pub-culture feel. Lately the soundtracks like 'Talli Hua' (SINGH IS KING), 'Main Talli Ho Gayi' (UGLY AUR PAGLI) and Indi-Pop tracks like 'Soda Whisky' (Rishi Singh) and 'Glassy' (Hard Kaur) had made big news and this number too follows the same genre, mood and thump that can thrill pop genre. If promoted well with flashy promos, it can be one big chartbuster hit that will surely be adding another convincing number into ARA's credits. The mood is even peppier in its Dhol Mix' and thrill of hitting floors is aggravated to the hilt as energized 'dhol' beat mixes well with the original composition.



Tushar delivers a few punch lines with elan while Rajpal Yadav is his humourous best. I just get the feeling he has taken over Johnny Lever's vacant slot, because the veteran is nowhere to be seen. As for Anupam Kher, he saunters into yet another insipid role. Mithun Chakraborty too makes his presence felt in a role reminiscent to that of the recently released DON MUTHUSWAMY. But while DON MUTHUSWAMY had some meat, this one here is downright silly. A hackneyed plot and a waste of Raima Sen as well.

While his cousin Abhishek Kapoor has directed the successful ROCK ON, which incidentally released on the same day, Tushar will have to wait another day for another script...


Rating 1.5/5

Probably upset at various producers and directors taking pot shots at her serials, Ekta Kapoor decided who better than herself to do justice to running down her very own serials and the way Balaji Studios function. While its good humour, just like a few Laughter Challenge contestants who have the innate ability to laugh at themselves, and make others laugh as well, you can't take this 'serial reference' beyond a point.

There are quite a few laughable scenes but overall, it's a colossal waste of talent. Tushar Kapoor, Anupam Kher and Rajpal Yadav all live in the C wing of a particular building. They bond well and share each other's problems. To teach Anupam's son a lesson, the trio decide to make an extortion call using a gangsters name. And before you know it, they go on to form their own 'C Kkompany' making threat calls, mostly to help citizens get their due.
