Is Dabangg going to be Salman’s next Wanted? I don’t know, but I’m sure the movie will rock even if it’s half as good as Wanted. Salman Khan has been successful with masala flicks and Dabangg is expected to be another feather on his hat. Well, how the movie fares is something we’ll wait and see, first, let’s take a look at its music, composed by Sajid Wajid.
The album begins with Tere Mast Mast Do Nain, a soulful romantic number crooned by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. A wonderfully melodious track, it kicks the album off on a perfect note.
Next up is Munni Badnaam, the item number featuring Malaika Arora Khan. Mamta Singh and Aishwarya sing the song. I’m not a big fan of item numbers, they’re obviously more fun to watch then listen to. Munni Badnaam is quite fun though, it has raunchy lyrics with mentions of famous Bollywood actresses.
Chori Kiya Re Jiya is another romantic number. Behind the vocals of this one are Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghosal. However, this one doesn’t make much of an impression.
The other two original numbers of the album are Humka Peeni Hai, a folk-based track sung by Wajid and Hud Hud Dabangg, sung by Sukhwinder. Now, both of these tracks are awesome numbers. They’re going to rock the movie; they’re typical Sallu style numbers – bold and brash. Salman fans are going to go nuts over these two tracks.
The album also features four remixes and one instrumental Dabangg theme. All in all, the music of Dabangg has got enough vigour to make anyone look forward to the movie even more.
