David Dhawan movies have never boasted of
classy or ´critic pleasing´ music. Right from the days of ´Aankhen´
(O Laal Dupatte Wali), ´Bol Radha Bol´ (Tu Tu Tu
Tu Tara), ´Raja Babu´ (the whole album), ´Coolie No 1´ (´Main To Raste Se Ja Raha Tha), ´Hero No 1´ (Sona Kitna Sona Hai), ´Bade
Miyan Chote Miyan´ and ´Biwi No 1´ (whole albums) to
the most recent ´Jodi No 1´ (Ande Ka Funda),
Davids music has been put down by the honourable critics but has scored high on the
With ´Mujhse Shaadi Karogi´ it is going to
be a similar story. The audio has a total of 8 tracks with one remix.
The first song ´Rab Kare´ appeals on the first hearing itself as
it has some good lyrics and singing and is a breezy number with a good tune.
The vocals/singing of Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik are
The title song ´Mujhse Shaadi Karogi´ sung with a lot of zest by
Udit Narayan and Sonu Nigam is already becoming a rage with the masses.
The song is very situational and gives a very good idea about what to expect from the
Anu Malik´s only composition ´Jeene
Ke Hain Chaar Din´ is ordinary and after hearing it, Sajid´s decision of
replacing Anu with Sajid-Wajid seems
justified. Even the singing by Sunu Nigam is too artificial and Sunidhi Chauhan
sounds ill at ease. The western inputs don´t help much.
Sukhwinder´s ´Aaja Soniye´ (remix) has a heard
before feeling to it but still its a foot tapping number and an attempt at a Punjabi
With Salman being one of the heros a ´Dupatta/Oodhni
/Chunari´ song is always on the cards. Though it does not have the rhythm of the ´Chunari
expert´ Himesh, the lyrics by Arun Bhairav
are very classy and the song, a soft romantic number number by Udit and Alka is quite good
and with time will grow on the listener.
´Kar Doon Kamaal´ by Sukhwinder Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan is
just about alright and seems more like a space filler. Once again, Sukhwinder must get out
of his ´Mirchi´ hangover from ´Biwi No. ´.
´Lahoo Banke Aansoo´ is quite good and though it is a sad
version of the first number ´Rab Kare´ it has some good lyrics by Jalees Sherwani. The song again is a situational
one and it is obvious that it will come at a very important juncture in the movie. The
vocals by Udit, Alka and Sabri have a lot of feelings.
The last track ´Aaja Soniye´ is better than the remix version.
For once Sonu Nigam does not go overboard with his innovations and Alka is as efficient as
Though it may be depressing for intellectual (they think that they are one!) and ´Barista´
sipping critics, expect at least two (if not more) numbers in the top 5 by the end of this
month specially ´Rab Kare´ (a chartbuster for the classes) and ´Mujhse Shaadi
Karogi´ (a chartbuster for the masses).
On the whole the album is quite good and in synch with David
Dhawan type of movies but could have been better. It may not appeal to the
Yash Chopra, Karan Johar NRI audience but will grow in popularity as more and more songs
are aired and if the excellent initial response is anything to go by, we know what we are
