'Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum' music a 'kool' affair

Film: 'Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum'; Music Director: Sachin-Jigar, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, Meet Bros Anjjan; Lyricist: Mayur Puri, Kumaar; Singers: Vishal Dadlani, Sonu Nigam, Sukhwinder Singh, Daler Mehndi, Riteish Deshmukh, Neeraj Shreedhar, Kailash Kher, Swaroop, Meet Bros Anjjan, Rating: ***

In 2005, 'Kyaa Kool Hai Hum' wrote a new chapter in the genre of comedy films and its much awaited sequel promises to tickle our funny bone once again. One gets a feel of it through the soundtrack of 'Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum' -- a peppy and funny album, totally in sync with the essence of the movie.

The album starts off with 'Dil garden garden ho gaya', which has Vishal Dadlani crooning in his high-pitched voice well supported by modern techno sounds. The track has a very youthful touch and is bound to be noticed. It also has a remixed version, which isn't radically different from the original track.

Some electronic beats have been added to the composition, but the remixed song fails to create the desired effect. It's better to stick with the original.

Next up is 'Shirt da button'. It is an unusual title for a romantic song. The lyrics are a bit comical, but Sonu Nigam's voice carries the track on its shoulder and delivers it with perfection. Sonu has sung it so beautifully that the song touches you instantly. The use of handclaps to give it a qawwali feel in between also works well for the composition. It also has a second version, albeit in a slower avatar.

The alternate track has been sung by the soulful Kailash Kher in a mellowed down manner. It has more of a qawwali touch, which takes one back to the song 'Tu jaane na' from 'Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahani'. It's hard to choose the better one here as both the versions are equally compelling and are an absolute treat to the ears.

'Hum toh hain cappuccino (UP-Bihar lootne)' is a twisted version of Shilpa Shetty's famed dance number 'UP-Bihar lootne'. It has vocals by Daler Mehndi, Sukhwinder Singh, Swaroop and actor Riteish Deshmukh. The song fills you with nostalgia and instantly grows on you with the array of voices that keep you hooked. The song has a very raw feel and has a surprise as Riteish donned the writer's hat and penned the Marathi lyrics for it.

Next up is an out and out dance number titled 'Volume high karle'. Sung by NeerajSridhar, the song is high on electronic and techno beats, but the lyrics are very ordinary and the composition deserved a better treatment. It also has a remixed version, which like the original, falls short of expectations. Even with the addition of powerful beats, it doesn't create the desired effect.

The final verdict - the music of 'Kyaa Super Kool Hain Hum' has some highs and lows, but deserves a hear as it manages to lift your 'kool' quotient.
