Chashme Baddoor Music Review

By Rafat, Glamsham Editorial

Once the king of comedy, David Dhawan, is going through a lean phase with his last big hit PARTNER in 2007! But looks like things will be back on track for the director with his next, CHASHME BADDOOR which happens to be a remake of the iconic hit film of the same name. Music of David's films has always been very entertaining and has garnered popularity, especially amongst the masses and youth. So let's check out if it happens this time too, with the aid of his trusted lieutenants, Sajid-Wajid!First up is 'Har Ek Friend Kamina Hota Hai', a song that has already attracted attention because of its' addictive rhythm and humorous hook line, 'Har ek friend' borrowed from the famous cell-phone ad jingle, 'Har ek friend zaroori hota hai'. Rendered by the versatile Sonu Nigam whose emotive vocals and voice modulations are just right and suited to the theme of the movie. Helping the cause further are the apt lyrics by Kausar Munir that are superbly situational and a mirror of the characters of the lead protagonists. Next up,'Dhichkyaaon Doom Doom', by Ali Zafar and Shreya Ghoshal, is a light 'chhed-chaad' or 'nok-jhonk' song between the two lead protagonists. The tune has its inspiration from quite a few of RD Burman's numbers like 'Chura Liya Hai' and even the arrangements hark back to the good old days of the seventies. Neelesh's lyrics are funny and very identifiable and the youth will definitely give it a thumps up. There is a second version with Wajid and Shreya and it's not much different from the first.The mood is once again retro, and this time it's Kishore Kumar and his house of music that inspires Sajid-Wajid for 'Early Morning', a number that is set in the same corridor as 'Mere Saamne Wali Khidki' (PADOSAN) . Kishore Da's much popular 'yodling' and rib tickling sounds are a testimony to our claim. However the USP of the song is the teaming of Sonu and Ali Zafar and superb lyrics by Jalees Sherwani, whose reference to Face book, Yahoo Messenger, BBM will be patronized by the youth and Gen X. There is a remix version sung by Ali Zafar, 'Early Morning' complete with nice rhythmic rap and lovely female chorals and is a good hear. From one fun number to another, 'Ishq Mohallah' is sung by Mika Singh and Wajid and the addictive chorus in the beginning reminds of Sajid-Wajid's very own chartbuster, 'Chammak Challo' (ROWDY RATHORE) which was in itself a Laxmikant-Pyarelal inspired composition. Once again it's Neelesh's zany, comical and apt lyrics that serves as the highlight of the trackWe next encounter another fun situational track, 'Andha Ghoda Race Mein Dauda, a song befits the mood/theme of the movie . Even though the song starts of as a soft, soothing fun track, it later transforms in to an all-out zany rock... Wajid and Ali Zafar along with Neuman Pinto are all in their elements and so is the lyricist Jalees Sherwani whose similes and proverbs are simply hilarious! Summing up, the audio of CHASHME BADDOOR is targeted at the masses and youth and that is exactly where the response to the songs will come from, as evident from the popularity of 'Har Ek Friend'. However, the class and mass appeal of PARTNER and MUJHSE SHAADI KAROGI is missing and especially since this is a remake of such a classy film, and with actors like Ali Zafar, Siddharth etc one expected more from the team.
