There seems to be upbeat trend of having multiple composers for a film album and SUNDAY seems to be one such optimistic presentation. Pop diva Shibani Kashyap, ?bhangra? sensation Daler Mehndi, upcoming prodigy Raghav Sachar, contemporaries Sandeep Chowta, Amar Mohile and new kids on block from Pakistan - ?Surror? are the chosen one to deliver hot ?n? spicy stuff. It can be transitory phase but the results in SUNDAY seem to be swashbuckling with tracks like ?Missing Sunday?, ?Pyar to Hona Hi Tha? and ?Manzar? promising chartbusting success.
Sandeep Chowta gains his phenomenal ground in the marquee by pitching out a really hot and sweltering sluggish paced hip-hop and electronica type of ?razzmatazz? fervor in feverishly paced title track ?Missing Sunday?. Mahua Kamath, an ex-VIVA group vocalist seductive vocal oomph seems to be getting all playful acts together with impressive Suraj energized vocals joining the fun in tandem. Chowta?s upbeat inundation of hip-hop with tantalizing electronic beat rhythmic patterns collages effervescently with snooty Earl Edger emceeing in making it hot-shot hit track. ?Missing Sunday (remix? simply adds more zest to the party but this time it?s more of a sluggish ?club-house? stylized work where regular paced vocals gets into groove with subtle instrumental flows. Go get it!
JAL, ROXEN and now SURROR! ?Pyar to Hona Hi Tha? (album ??Pyar to Hona Hi Tha?) marks the promising introduction of another prodigal Paki rock band ?Surror? into Hindi filmdom with great success and all credits to their sonorously soft vocals, combustible orchestration and lucid wordings. Lead vocalists Kamran Bari along with Mohammad Ali leads the energetic bandwagon of spirited percussionist, flashy guitarist and thunderous arranger that really fires the entire energy on floors. Despite its blistering rock-concert feel, filmmakers have mistaken it as syrupy romantic duet but anyway it?s listening delight all the way. Even its flashy ?club? mix gets both feet?s together on floors and with echoing DJ claps and scratches mixing well with snazzy disco beat fillers, its really one great party feeling.
If there was any thunder and edginess in ?Talwar Re? (CHOODO NA YAAR) then ?Loot Liya? seems to be another extension with spirited ?Maharastrian Lavani? folksy touches. Daler Mehndi goes full throttle for this raunchy dancing track where gruffly paced Sunidhi Chauhan joins him in tandem to energize all passion. This coarsely composed folksy composition by Daler Mehndi may not be finest in its league but certainly delivers a pertinent festive feel for the desired situation.
Let?s get to the performances. Ajay Devgan is trapped in a role which he should have left behind ages ago. Ayesha Takia does what is asked of her. But it is Arshad Warsi who puts life into his role, closely followed by Irfan Khan. After his act as Circuit in Munnabhai, I guess, this one is very endearing. Perfect comic timing and ?on the cue? dialogue delivery, Arshad is a treat. Irfan as the ?wanting to be a movie star? is another act that is worth mentioning.
Yes, Esha Deol does sizzle in her item song. The girl is all attitude. Sorry, can?t add anything more, am at a loss for words!
TO GO OR NOT: There is this one dialogue which Ajay Devgan keeps repeating: ?Mujhe choo, choo pasand nahi.? If you like ?Choo choo? Teri marzi!
