Gen Facebook...here they come! The sporadic rise of social networking websites has finally hit the doors of Bollywood with a bang. MUJHSE FRAAANDSHIP KAROGE, a new offering by Y-Films, is one such endeavor that explores the pros and cons of the proposed 'fraaandship' networking in our lives. Packed with a new bunch of acting talents, it experiments with the likes of Raghu Dixit, an upcoming talent in Indi-pop folksy rock music with Anvita Dutt penning up peppy lyrics for this "yuppie" friendly flick. After moderate success of Y-Films first release LUV KA THE END, it's a second major move by the esteemed YRF to woo urbane viewers with musical feel that brings an array of 'hot-n-happening' new singing talents. Will they make big this time? Let's build a bond of "fraaandship" with them and hear what they are singing for us...
Party theme songs rocks the floors in the first musical outing as it strikes vivaciously with chirpy "n" slipshod wordings in crazy sounding 'Dheaon Dheaon' (sounds of gun-shots). The song works on Karnataka's impish "street-dancing" beat patterns, an experimental maneuver by Raghu Dixit, where Anvita Dutt's outlandishly smart wordings (Bubblegum poppings ah, Hip hip hoppings ah, Bangkok shoppings ah, La di dah di dah dah, Pink pink frockings ah, Tight tight stockings ah, Heart is rockings ah, Dancing samba...) makes a commotion of earsplitting happening on dancing floors. Vishal Dadlani's coarsely vocals gels well with screechy voice of Aditi Singh Sharma and evokes out the musical confrontation in Hinglish "hip-hop" melodic mode. The surprise element is rap works with "Machas with Attitude" that energizes the tempo and supplements with zany one-liners, epitomizing the gist of the title of the flick. 'Dheaon Dheaon (The Seeti Seeti Bang Bang Mix)', the infectiously loud remix version accentuates the fun with added electronic flute works, mixing well with added disco beat fillers. On creativity front, Raghu Dixit tries out a "different beat" in Hindi filmdom, a slick cinematographic and flashy choreographically profound moves will surely fuel passion on floors.
Refurbishing an upbeat Hollywood-ish "teen-movie" ambience, the dreamy romance bon-voyage in 'Uh-Oh Uh-Oh' makes mood somber and adds sobriety of emotions with a dosage of breezy vocals. Ash King's cool-breezy voice gets into the sauntering paced arrangements where he is ably supported with slender vocal throws of Shilpa Rao. This time Anvita Dutt's lyrics sounds meaningfully pleasant and strikes chord with the "innocent charms" of "boy-meeting-girl", where the composer shows his dexterity in transiting from varied sounds and rhythms, as the mood changes. Overall speaking, it's a decent presentation that should be connecting well with the targeted sect of listeners and will be showering substantial lovey-dovey moments in the flick. 'Uh-Oh Uh-Oh 2.0' packs a zany-paced electronica musical madness into this "yuppie" friendly number, where vocals resonates well in midst of sluggish paced disco-beat fillers and DJ spins. It transit moods to light-hearted dancing and glorifies the electronic flute rendition in flair of funky pitched composition.
After a mushy love-communion of young hearts, it's all about mating-dating that comes into play in campus-caper friendly sounding 'Baatein Shuru'. Raghu Dixit's Hinglish toned composition maintains the prevailed tonality and adds a bit of substance with funky soft-rock ballad hues, giving it a desired youthful appeal. Shefali Alvaris's peculiar nasal twang rendition sounds different but works positively in making this an edgy but joyful love duet. On the flip side, Joi Barua's boyish tones are loud and collage well with grungy electric guitar riffs, giving it an urbane friendly outlook. It breaks loose from contemporary Bollywood love duet and tries to impose a new convention with positive results.

Those actually chatting (Vishal and Preity) hate each other. Both cannot see eye-to-eye and Vishal does his best to overpower Preity with his wit on the college project there are working on. The end, when it comes, is quite a revelation. Is it cool to type warm 'I love you' messages in cold text or look into the eyes of the person you love and say the same? What's the best place to hang-out? facebook, or with real friends? Food for thought.
Saqib and Saba are electric on screen. Their chemistry is simply sizzling. Both are first rate actors. Their bickering, back-biting, fighting while working together and finally falling in love is what you will connect with. It's very real. Nupur has handled all of these scenes with 'adolescent maturity'.
Saba is not conventionally good looking but exceptionally beautiful. With original teeth, normal lips and a real nose. I mean you can't get more real characters than her. She plays a major part in tilting the scales heavily in MFK's favour.
Prashant, Tara and the guy who plays Vishal's friend too chip in with good performances. The songs are catchy and peppy, the mood upbeat.
The youth will simply love it. Log on to MUJSE FRAANDSHIP KAROGE, guys. This one is a winner from the YRF stable.
