    • Himmatwala S.T is a Tentative fare

      Himmatwala music rating: 5 out of 10(suhail wrote on Feb 21 2013 11:01AM)

      RECENT ALBUMS - Chashme Buddor, Dabangg 2.

      Outlook - Sajid-Wajid are one of those rare
      artists combo that are rediscovering those
      golden 80's era.Check out the simplicity terms in all of their compositions and a genuine feel of indian classical.There
      are lot of reasons to show immense respect for this very tallented duo especially regarding to their super-hit never-ending
      musical contributions.Himmatwala is an offical remake of 80's classic movie
      directed by Sajid khan and starring action king Ajay Devgan. The promo song 'Naino Mein' already surprised our attention and surely all strung-out to this hit-number.So what does one expect form this S.T - Mix Genres of 80's era matching the theme of movie and re-establishing some memories of
      our legendary artists -

      Music Review -

      Track 1 - 'Naino Mein Sapna'
      Singers - Amit Kumar and Shreya Ghoshal

      Bringing back the magic of 80's,Sajid-wajid
      recreates the original 'Ta thaiya' song
      that was pictured on Jeetendra and Sridevi,
      resulted out to be a chartbuster.Similarly
      this time,we can all cherish the same
      accomplishment here.There is lot to look
      after to music.One can revive those powerful tabla and chandes that are totally
      addictive while the sitar tunes are captivating and stick drums coordinated very well along mighty orchestra.Sung originally by legendary Kishore Kumar and
      Indian Melody Queen Lata Mangeshkar,
      Sajid-wajid tries the combo of Amit Kumar
      and Shreya Ghoshal who does perfectly well
      giving it a bygone touch that is plume.
      This one is good to hook to. Nicely sung and Great music.


      Track 2 - 'Taki Taki'
      Singers - Mika Singh,Shreya Ghoshal

      Another remake of 'O taki taki' song from
      original and almost reprising the same
      theme.Well lets be totally honest,the song
      is good and a nicely rendered attempt.
      Mika's edgy voice and sweet shreya are the
      only reason to give it a try. A hint of
      foot-tapping music relating to rowdy rathore typo and carnatic music is finely
      used. Overall, a bit of drilled boring song.


      Track 3 - 'Dhoka Dhoka'
      Singers - Mamta Sharma, Sunidhi Chauhan,
      Bappi Lahiri.

      Its time for some disco-dance masala fare.
      Relying more on electric ostinato and well
      managed pace that is groovy.Its again Mamta
      sharma that impresses a lot with her spicy
      vocals while sunidhi does her part good too,Bappi sir just emphasises little at the
      end that is Okaish. Lyrics are 'hatke' and
      crunchy especially with those mix of South
      and Punjabi verbose.Lets wait to see where
      is this song placed.Hope it does the same
      what 'Aa re Pritam Pyaare' did.


      Track 4 - 'Bum Pe laat'
      Singer - Shaan ,Soham,Shubh Mukherjee.

      Next comes 'Bum Pe laat' sung by melodious
      shaan. Easily a Kiddy song with some funny
      music,comic strip and hisses. Its a average
      number you wanna skip too rather listening
      to wasted 3 minutes fare.


      Track 5 - 'Thanks God its Friday'
      Singer - Sunidhi Chauhan

      As per news,Sonakshi Sinha will be dancing
      on this item number. It has some addictive
      moments but flaws too.Disco beats and
      rhythmic chorals are impressive that adds up high energy.Sunidhi chauhan's variations
      are crazy and funny.Overall,its lyrics
      are bit disappointing that justifies the end results.


      Final Verdict -

      To sum up, Himmatwala S.T may have some
      promise but it is unlikely to find a place in charts-topper list. Sajid-wajid have always given atleast one chartbuster song in their previous fares but here, we are
      in a 50-50 doubted state.The fate of this
      S.T totally depends on the way it is pictured in movie. As per the promise,Sajid
      wajid fly-high but as per results,its a
      dilemma.Its a Promising prospect that turns
      out to be a average one.Could have been better.

      Suggested Songs - 'Naino Mein Sapna',
      'Dhoka Dhoka'.

      Ratings - 2.5/5.
