    • Pritam's special cocktail !

      Cocktail music rating: 9 out of 10(suhail wrote on Jun 12 2012 8:22PM)


      lyrics-Irshad kamil
      music by-pritam

      'Tumhi ho bandu'-neeraj shridar,kavita seth

      pritam starts the album with an effectual track.kavita seth is back after a while after her award winning "iktara",her odd and appealing voice gives life to this foot-tapping 'tum hi ho bandhu'.Music is bit similar which we often hear from pritam's side but the innovations that he discovers to produce such tracks are brilliant. Neeraj shridar supports kavita in his repetitive lines.This track will be regularly played in discs,parties ,fm's and cars.A BRIGHT START TO THE DAY.tum hi ho bandu simply rocks.

      'Daaru desi'-benny dyal,shalmali kholgade

      pleasant guitar tune welcomes you with daaru desi supported with hasty music.As usual benny dyal is effective with his delightful voice.shalmali fits best ,contrasting benny's.Daaru desi will strike masses especially youngsters with its BIZZARE effect.Another superhit song by pritam and irshad kamil combo.

      'Yaariyan'-mohan kanan and shilpa rao

      Pritam changes the mood with a rocking ballad.The start of song easily tells
      about its genre and music continues with its drums and bass effects.A beautiful FRIENDSHIP song that reminds us about our dear friends.Yaariyan is a TOUCHING track though it will take sometime to create impact.Mohan Kanan's high-pitch singing is effective.Lyrics are MAGICAL.
      "na chode yaariyan"-miss my friends

      'Second hand jawani'-miss pooja,neha kakkar and nakkash aziz

      Another twist in the album.Pritam brings Miss pooja-punjabi dj queen with her debut performance in bollywood.She remains to expectations with nakkash aziz.This song is a "let it hear and go" song.A TIMEPASS song! with some desi beat music pritam delivers a punjabi hip-hop song.

      'Tera naam japdi phiran'-Javed bashir,nikhil dsouz,shefali.

      A mixture of hindi-punjabi supported by some english patterns.'Tera naam japdi phiran' is a club song.Different from typical pritam compositions.Javed bashir performs confidently .Music is pacy and organisations in between the song are very striking.A NERVE-TRACKING song by pritam.


      'Luttna(saif-ul malook)' masuma anwar,sahir ali and anupam amod

      A high-pitched sufi track with humongous energy from all the artists.Lyrics of this song have tragedy written.A HEART-BREAKING track.Bit of tabla and mostly mixed rock patterns are used.A sub-par song.Still works if you look at the contrast of album.


      'jugni'-arif lohar,harshdeep kaur

      The famous pakistani track 'jugni' by coke studio is reformed by pritam.Pritam has done suitable managements .Arif lohar is same as he was in original,meesha saafi is replaced by harshdeep kaur.Lyrics are same.Original one was a sufi track.However ,i felt genre bit changed.The track's reputation is same is as it was earlier-LOVELY!

      'Yaariyan (reprise)'-sunidhi chauhan,arjit singh

      Sunidhi chauhan's sweet voice and pritam's piano arrangements makes yaariyan a BEAUTIFUL track.Even arjit's mid-entrance voice gives some change in track.A SWEET composition.


      Overall-This is definitely a Cocktail to try for.It has a lot of potential to top the charts. COCKTAIL is a brillantly and smartly crafted album and will leave its impact for a long. Each song is capable of succeeding! HATRICK of hits for pritam this year after Agent Vinod and Jannat 2. Irshad Kamil's words are OUTSTANDING!

      MY RECOMMENDED SONGS-'Daaru desi','tum hi bandu','yaariyan','luttna','Jugni','yaariyan(reprise)'.

      MY RATINGS-4.5/5
