Rhythm (Shankar Mahadevan), Vibe (Ehsaan Noori) and Sound (Loy Mendonsa) strikes a combustible chemistry again and ?fire in them? continues to upsurge and explode as they reputedly and repeatedly lives up to their gargantuan status.
Shankar Ehsaan Loy (SEL) gets into the groove with their peculiar thriving thrust as they lauds rich blend of hip-hop, trance, R n B, Sufi rock in their upbeat musical packaging in Sajid Khan?s HEYY BABYY.
It mainly constitutes ?pub-culture? musical mania in stylish Afro-American bang with voguish Aussie styled ?Girl Band? ushering innovative impulse to the show. The magic continues with couple of delightful sappy tracks with dash of Sufi rock. The megalomania of musical outburst unravels from philandering acts of party entertainers to the flagrant and extroverted love chemistry and finally ends up with expressions of considerate paternity.
SEL?s flamboyance in snazzy ?n? cheerful delivering title tracks have been milestone success in the past and the grandiosity of rave party maintains its top slot as trance cum hip-hop music hits the deck in playful ?Heyy Babyy?.
It?s kind of groovy party track that can really pump up adrenalin and kick-start the animated feel among disco freaks on the floors. After ?Ticket to Hollywood? (JHOOM BARABAR JHOOM), Neeraj Sridhar zooms in with another zany and peppy track that comes out with volubly crisper lyrical flow from Sameer.
The spotlight of this hip-shaking rendezvous is the eclectically resonating sound of ?A-E-O-A? that collides impulsively with electronically punched hip-hop bang by Loy Mendonsa.
New entrants Raman and Pervez Quadir chill out as effervescently scintillating back up vocal duo that contributes magnificently to this party feast. It reminisces back to the ardor and zeal of ?Koi Kahe? (DIL CHAHTA HAI) but the rhythm, vibe and sound is upbeat and a complete knock out from the first beat.
DJ Whosane pumps up in more meat with extra enthused pulsating electronic and hip-hop DJ spins, skips and scratches that invigorates the racy impact of loud and thriving vocals in ?Heyy Babyy? (The Big ?O? Remix). It?s extra-emphasized jingled hook-line ?A-E-O-A? that forms zany loop with concocted impact of percussive elements and DJ?s techno-wizardry in building an animated tempo on the floors. The slang ?Heyy Babyy? finds its Australian connection as the voguish ?Girl Band? steams out with ?concert? feel bang in their portentously girlish fling in upbeat ?Heyy Babyy? (featuring Girl Band). Anvita Dutt Guptan?s jumbo-mumbo wordings are joyous to hilt while DJ Akabar Sami lauds out with stylish and chic mode DJ wizardry.
SEL and Sajid Khan?s strong inclination towards Yashraj?s branded music gleams and it protrudes out in soft malleable melody ?Dholna?. Its instrumental prelude, gesticulating rhythmic patterns and lyrical flow are ?good-naturedly? similar to ?Dholna? (DIL TO PAAGAL HAI). Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal mellifluously synchronized vocals unravel through phases of eternal romanticism and expressiveness are well emanated with delectable vocal modulation. It?s a delight to experience two refined vocals back together but the splurge of chartbusting treat is missing. Afro-American styled slow ?n? trendy hip-hop impulse with strong tinge of sluggishly pitched ?lounge? impact is rechristened to perfection by DJ Whosane in ?Dholna? (Love is in the Air Remix). Its relaxing and soothing impact in typical hip-hop mode is innovatively stylish and positively a cool attribute to album?s credentials. Hear it loud to enjoy a romantic mushy feel on the floors!
It?s difficult to point out one actor who has outshone the other, hence it would be only fair to say that every actor complements the other, and this again is kudos to the director of letting the story rest on several shoulders instead on focusing on ?A? particular character. Having said that, the central character is, however, the baby and she holds fort with her bawling and smiling. It must have been a task to get her to get her act right!
If one looks at the film holistically, it is a love story between Akshay and Vidya, held firmly with the baby and the boys. At another level, it?s also a story of wild guys being tamed by a baby.
Though it?s meant to be a comedy, it tells a stirring story; of bonding with a baby, of realizing the value of true love and of finding out how unselfish one can be when it comes to caring for a baby. So you have your laugh moments, but there are also those teary-eyed moments.
Now here?s explaining the five stars. When a batsmen scores a century even after hitting and missing; it?s still a century to his name. Same here. I?d say Sajid has scored a chanceless ton. You can?t fault this movie from any angle.
From children, to teenagers, to papas and mamas, to grandparents — they will all love it.
Get set for the cheers Mr Khan!
