Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani : Music Review

Led by funky brass bands, Badtameez Dil is a total riot. Both on screen and off. Thanks to Benny Dayal's energy in vocals, aptly supported by  Shefali Alvares. Equally rioting is next desi track - Balam Pichkari. This is that one thing that drags you from couch to the floor. Vishal and Shalmali are in top form playing totally desi holi. The high that those two songs gave, instantly goes down with next one - Dilliwali Girlfriend. A tiresome track where nothing works, despite of having fun, tricky lyrics.

Next Kabira has impressive line-up of vocals in two versions. First one, by Rekha Bhardwaj and Tochi Raina has a sound similar to Yaariyaan (Cocktail). Nice one, but the earthy version by Arijit and Harshdeep scores over the former one. (Man, Arijit - can make any song - sound good !). The sound of children chorus in Ilahi, makes it sound lovely. Brilliantly infused chorus in pacey strings, this one ends up as my most favorite number from the album. Both versions, by Arijit and Mohit, are perfect for those long journeys with wonderful lyrics by Amitabh. While the rest of the lot - having standard template that you have heard n times before. Subhanallah is nicely sung by Sreeram, but Salim-Suleiman kinda template makes it lacking that freshness. And (much anticipated, Madhuri Item Number !!) Ghagra is just right for some on-screen fun. Presence of Rekha Bhardwaj and Vishal Dadlani doesn't help much.

Pritam's score for this fun film, is definitely good if not 'overall' rocking. (but that expectation is out of place here). Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani is that colorful, live soundtrack that works with occasional glitch (3 tracks).

My Picks : Ilahi, Badtameez Dil, Balam Pichkari.

    Woah! I'm really loving the template/theme of this blog. It's simple, yet effective.
    A lot of times it's very difficult to get that "perfect balance" between usability and visual appeal. I must say you have done a great job with this. In addition, the blog loads very fast for me on Opera. Outstanding Blog!
