R... Rajkumar Music Review

By Rafat, Glamsham Editorial

King of action 'masala' films, director Prabhu Dheva is back after a slew of hits which include, WANTED, ROWDY RATHORE, ABCD-ANYBODY CAN DANCE! etc. And this time it's again a film in a genre he excels in; 'masala'! The film in question is R...RAJKUMAR, and for the first time it's composer Pritam who has been endowed with the task of composing for a Prabhu Dheva film. Huge expectations arise from Pritam to come up with a chartbusting album, as is the norm in all Prabhu Dheva films. So let's check out if the expectations are met with or not!One instantly nods in the affirmative with a very first song, 'Gandi Baat', the number that has been making a huge mark with the masses and youth as well. And rightly so, its super-fast racy yet addictive rhythm, cute lyrics and superb crunching dance by lead actor Shahid Kapoor (with the master, Prabhu himself joining in with his specialized moves), makes this number a sureshot winner(it already is!). Mika Singh is in full form and so much so that Kalpana Potwari is dwarfed in comparison.The film version of 'Gandi Baat' has been rendered by Nakash Aziz and Ritu Pathak and is a shade more sober, with less of background music and one prefers Mika's versions for obvious reasons.One chartbusting number leads to another one, 'Saree Ke Fall Sa'. Once again superb rhythm, novel yet identifiable lyrics and excellent choreography and dancing by Shahid amidst the white salt background of Bhuj creates a chart scorcher that is already climbing the charts. One does get a hint of Prtitam's own 'Pyar Ki Pungi' (AGENT VINOD) in the 'mukhda'. Nakash Aziz ('Pyaar Ki Pungi", 'Dhating Naach') and Antara Mitra, both reality show stars showcase their vocal prowess with ease and elan. The remix version of 'Saree Ke Fall Sa' appears to be a space filler as the original itself was very catchy and rhythmic. Yet another song in the same corridor, 'Mat Maari' has been rendered by Kunal Ganjawala who lends the song his versatile touches, along with Sunidhi, who quips in with her one liners and angry monosyllabic (like Shut Up, 'khamosh', mimicking Sonakshi's father, Shatrughan Sinha) and does a superb job. Arijit Singh and Palak Muchal render the serene love ballad, 'Dhokha Dhadi', its Pritam style that we all love, with lovely background musical arrangements, soft melodious with beautiful words penned by Neelesh. The first disappointing song of the album that one comes across is the crude, crass and catering to just front benchers, 'Kaddu Katega', sung by Antara Mitra. The item number is meant to be raunchy and it might find patronage from its target audience but it fails in its attempt at recreating another 'Aa Re Pritam Pyare' (ROWDY RATHORE). The audio album of R...RAJKUMAR is quite worthy of a Prabhu Dheva venture, and is a mass entertainer to the core, just like his films. Chartbusting songs 'Gandi Baat' (Mika's version) and 'Saree Ke Fall Sa' are our pick. The hit music will ensure a reasonably good opening when the film releases all over on 6th
