Fukrey Music Review
Excel Entertainment's FUKREY has been in the news for a lot of reasons, its cheeky title and the fresh and young star cast, to name a few. Always known for providing good music for the films under their banner, one does expect the same from their upcoming film, especially as it also marks the return of composer Ram Sampath, after a super successful outing in Excel's last venture, TALAASH, the music of which is still fresh and popular. With high expectations let's get on and check out the audio which promises to be fresh, fun and vibrant!

The controversial title track, 'Fuk Fuk Fukrey' is a nice, racy theme song (though the tune is similar to Piyush Soni's 'Chokra'), with lots of drums and percussions. Lyrics (Vipul Vig) outline the characters, their pathetic state of affairs and their dreams of making it big in the capital city, Delhi. Amjad Bagadwa's rendition is emotive and Ram Sampath, Yash Divecha and Vrashal Chavan give support in the catchy hook line and add to the fun.

With Mika Singh at the helm of affairs (along with Tarannum Malik) one expected a fun, 'tapori', roadside Romeo type propositioning outing from 'Beda Paar', and it turns exactly like that. The composer gives able support in the fun filled chorus. The English back-up vocals-''I am just an illusion'' sounds a bit out of sync though.
Pankaj Tripathi makes a complete shift with his role as a college chowkidaar who too knows how to make a quick buck. A revelation. The only weak link in the entire plot is the role of Ali Fazal as Zafar. He is shown roaming around the college campus with a guitar in hand. He is apparently in love with Neetu (who teaches in the same college) and out of the blue we are subjected to a hospital scene where he is helping his paralyzed father give a urine sample. A little tweaking of his character here and FUKREY would have been phenomenal.

However, Richa Chaddha - ('Sinderalla' reads the tattoo on the nape of her neck, reads), who plays Bholi Punjaban a female gangster with a quirky twist - puts the ultimate garnish on this dish called FUKREY.
It's a role reversal from what we saw of her in GANGS OF WASSEYPUR. Here, she runs a den of her own and have big-wigs coming to her for 'favours'. For a price of course. She does not set out on her prey, but if opportunity knocks on her door, she does not think twice before using whoever it is, to suit her business needs.
And it is one such need that has Hunny, Choocha, Zafar, and Lali setting out to meet her. While Hunny, Choocha and Lali want admission in a college, Zafar is in need of quick money to help his ailing dad. Hunny and Choocha are 'school failures' whose only reason to be in college is to woo girls. They share a unique bond. They may be duffers in school but when it comes to dreams and deciphering them, they score big time. Hunny decodes Choocha's dream, zeroing it down to a number that they use to win lotteries. They have never lost.

Buoyed by this confidence, they approach Bholi Punjaban to put in big money to reap rich rewards. But Bholi wants her principle amount back, no matter what. She is convinced by the two that she will get that back, as well as much more. As luck would have it, they lose and she is after them to get back her due.
FUKREY may not touch the Rs 100-crore mark, but I sense that this film would surely do what BHEJA FRY did. Like I said in my opening line, this is not your average Hindi film. It takes balls to back a script like this!
