Its CHAK DE INDIA meets RAB NE BANA DI JODI! Yashraj Films (YRF) passion for Punjabi culture has been spotlighted in almost each of their release, but DIL BOLE HADIPPA! goes full blast with it. Whether it's ''chocolate-covered candy-hearts'' in Switzerland or sunshine-sparkling ''Punjab de sarsoon de khet'', their film has always been sumptuous with Punjabi enriched culture. To accentuate out this cultural heritage, Pritam gets the optimum opportunity to re-kindle out his finesse over this ''bhangra-beat'' culture that fetched him bountiful of chartbusting tracks.

Like CHAK DE INDIA, YRF experiments it out with debutant director Anurag Singh  for this ''girl-turned-boy'' meeting cricket coach love saga. For the prestigious YRF, the year 2009 has been auspicious so far with the musical success of NEW YORK, and now DIL BOLE HADIPPA! carries enough ammunition to explode out with its thunderous beats and catchy rhythms. Even Pritam had flourishing 2009 with successes like LOVE AAJ KAL and NEW YORK. So can this ''hadippa'' be as exciting as one expects as their last previous notable works. Put on your dancing shows and pump up the volumes to get into the groove of this ''dancing-shancing'' album…

Balle Balle! Spicy, funky and ethnic, all colors of festivity blooms in ''bhangra'' beats and ''dhol'' sounds to create a razzmatazz of affairs in affectionately boisterous ''Hadippa''. After churning out two immensely popular and eye-goggling ''bhangra'' numbers ''Mauja Hi Mauja'' (JAB WE MET) and ''Twist'' (LOVE AAJ KAL), Pritam is all set for the much deserved ''hat-trick'' of chartbusting success of this cadre with this lively track. This Mika Singh second major attribute in Pritam's prolific working has everything ranging from skillfully played keyboards, ''dhol'', ''tumbi'', ''ektara'', ''sapp'' (all traditional instruments) and serpentine flowing customary mandolin between preludes gushing out in loud stream of nonsensically penned witty lyrics (''Duniya Firangi Syappa Hai, Fikar Hi Gum Ka Papa Hai, Apna To Bas Yeh Jaapa Hai, Fikar Karein Fukarey…'') to make body shaking on the floors. Pritam's composition succeeds comprehensibly in making this ''carefree-go-free'' number a sprightly package by mixing out with hip-shaking arrangements. To add ''mirch-ka-tadka'' sort of emotions, Jaideep Sahni's ''no-brains-all-fun'' wordings have that rustic flamboyance that makes it a perfect ''bhangra-beat'' dancing fest number.

In cloudburst of ''remixes'', DJ Sandeep Shirodkar proves his mettle and makes his work loud and clear when ''Hadippa (remix)'' firing on all cylinders with added vocals of Sunidhi Chauhan. YRF felt so special about this ''remix'' that they promoted it's full version aggressively, showing their great confidence in the ''kismat-konnection'' of lead pair for this flick. Rocking!!!

After giving ''firangi'' culture thumbs down in ''Hadippa'', it's time for revival of some ''desi-beats'' as the rigorous tempo swivels for turf-war with ''disco-culture'' in ''Discowale Khisko''. This situational enthralling number comes with heavy usage of ''tumbi'' and ''ektara'' (traditional stringed plucking instruments – similar sounding to ''Mundiyan to Bachke'' by Punjabi MC) with thriving synthesizers and percussion in its backdrop. Sunidhi Chauhan along with KK and Rana Mazumdar are full throttle in enjoying out loud octave singing that encompasses varied forms of ''bhangra'' dancing (preferably ''giddha'', ''kikli'' etc) in its colorful outing. Pritam's composition is enticing but bears strong similarity with popular ''bhangra'' track ''Kala Chashma'' (Amar Arshi) in its stringed signature tune with old-fashioned ''bhangra'' loud tempo.

''Disco Khisko (Remix)'' by Abhijit Vaghani has strong UK ''bhangra'' pub-culture feel that can be felt in traditional instrumentals in zany DJ spins and claps. Like ''Maa Da Ladla'' (DOSTANA), Master Salim renders out terrific outing where his echoed and modulated toned voice forms amiable support to make this ferociously roaring number for the floors.

Rohan selects Veer Pratap Singh blissfully unaware that he is a girl, falls in love with Veera, thinking she is Veer's sister, realizes his folly during the all-important match, asks her to sit out, and then, when they are nine wickets down and on the verge of losing the match to a Pakistan team, requests her to pad up. No prizes for guessing which team wins
