Housefull begins with a romantic peppy track ‘O Girl You’ re Mine’ which has a fun mood going along with it throughout its duration. Though the lyrics are quite rugged, it is the constant rhythmic sound of ‘ O Girl You’re Mine’ that catches your attention instantly. Debutante Tarun Sagar does an average job at the vocals as he messes up the track at a couple of instances, but the female vocalist Alyssa Mendonsa does an excellent job. She outlasts Tarun in all manners she could. Whatever it maybe, the overall composition is quite cool and a favourite among the youth for sure.
The fun is on, this time in a situation when the protagonists seek for some private moments together. Sung by Neeraj Shridhar, Ritu Pathak and Alyssa Mendonsa, ‘Papa Jag Jaayega’ is an out and out masala number, backed up some interesting beats. But the song stays on to be an average fare and not really an exciting outing, one expected it to be.
The much awaited ‘ Aapka Kya Hoga (Dhanno)’ comes next, which actually is a revisited version of the classic song from the film ‘ Lawaris’. It starts off in a different style, but soon strikes off once Mika takes of the proceedings. Mika sounds actually a lot different ( and better) and brings an all new energy to the track. The beats of the track are amazing, but certainly the beats of the title line could have been better. Anyhow, the track is at its best during its climax with the dhol beats making the song a lot more energetic. Sunidhi Chauhan supports quite well. This one is undoubtedly the best track from the soundtrack.
he album continues to get inspired from the past era with ‘I don’t know what to do’ reminding of the tracks we have heard in the 80s. Shabbir Kumar returns on board after a couple of decades, and still sounds the way he did back then. This one is a fun ‘suhaagraat’ number about the protagonist being unaware about what he should do on his wedding night. Sunidhi Chauhan sounds superb and makes up for a fascinating duet.
Next appears a very out of the box and a rarely conceptualized track ‘ Loser’, which has a comic element in its vein throughout. Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lyrics are hilarious and complement the title of the track in an excellent fashion. The track begins in an intriguing manner but soon gets into its real mood once Vivienne Pocha takes off. This one is not a very good track definitely, yet it makes up for a couple of decent times pass hearings.
There are three remixes which follow in the order:
O Girl You’re Mine (O boy what a girli remix)
Papa Jag Jaayega (Insane Imsoniac Mix)
I don’t know what to do (Shabbirs Sexy 70s Mix)
None of the first two remixes are impressive. Both just make up for a poor to average remix musical. But the Shabbirs Sexy 70s Mix of I don’t know what to do is a mix that one can give a chance to hear, around a number of times. Beats are funkier and so is the fun. Quite enjoyable.
On the whole, Housefull is a masala offering, yet could have had Shankar Ehsaan Loy come up with better tracks. Aapka Kya Hoga is the show stealer all the way, while O Girl is sure to get masses grooving to it. I don’t know what to do is a peppy fun track which should appeal as well. Above average on the whole.
