Matru Ki Bijlee Ka Mandola : Music Review

Prelude of the title song almost reminds you of Beedi. Soon, Sukhi takes the center stage, promising an absolutely engaging feast backed by Ranjit Barot and Umoja. The 'train-like' beats keeps the track going on at superb pace. Talking about Khamakha - the only thing I disliked about it is the 'sha la la' kind of phirangi sound. I think it was unnecessary in this pristine GulzarVishal track. Endearing voice of Vishal fueled by Gulzarness is absorbing, and oh, that out-of-the-world conclusion by Prem Dehati, sigh.... 

You can't resist, but to 'lagaao do thumka' to the next track - Oye Boy Charlie. (If not, try it right now). Shankar alongwith Mohit and Rekha Bhardwaj, having all fun with desi tadka. Aur lyrics toh kya baat hai - Tu Munna toh main Moni :-D.  And then, we get the taste of reality. Lootnewale and Sha-ra-ra, former is high on percussion while later is totally desi - brass band thing. Situational, absolutely. Shall work with the film. Again, the dreamy sound comes back in Badal Uthiya. Rekha ji doing what she's best at. The Hariyanvi folk repeats, with Prem Dehati, it sounds even better. While Pankaj Kapur sings - yes- next tracks. Char Dina Ki and Chor Police. Both tracks give out the premises of the film, again situational - short tracks. Last one, Nomvula is a zulu track (African sound, to put in simple words) by the group Umoja. Initially it sounds alien to our ears but works as it progresses. 

Vishal Bhardwaj, for his mad mad project, this time gives a heavily situational soundtrack, with all the experiments he is famous for. But still, giving his trademark tracks as well. MKBKM soundtrack serves it purpose perfectly - making us curious about the film. 

My Picks : Oye Boy Charlie, Khamakha, Badal.
