Revisit simple joys of life with 'Chashme Baddoor' soundtrack

Film: "Chashme Baddoor"; Music Director: Sajid-Wajid; Lyricists: Jalees Sherwani, Neelesh Misra, Kausar Munir; Singers: Sonu Nigam, Ali Zafar, Shreya Ghoshal, Mika Singh, Wajid, Neuman Pinto; Rating: ****

David Dhawan is coming up with "Chashme Buddoor" remake and he has roped in Sajid-Wajid to compose music for the new version. The duo has tried to reproduce the spunk of the 1980s!

"Har ek friend kameena hota hai" is a satirical take on the popular mobile network jingle that states the exact opposite about friends. In the track, Sonu Nigam's voice is a refreshing change. It feels like a smooth journey with giggles galore, thanks to Kausar Munir's lyrics.

"Dhichkyaaon doom doom" opens with Ali Zafar singing the title words and you are transported directly to the sweet love of the 1980s. The track has such a running-around-tree-ambling-on-mountain feel to it, which Shreya Ghoshal accelerates even further. You fall in love with the song instantly ... go hear!

There is also another version of the song with Wajid adding his romantic charm to the track.

Next track is trip down Bollywood music's lane. Titled "Early Morning", the song would make you go all Raj Kapoor. Add to that Sonu's butter smooth vocals and Jalees Sherwani's contemporary lyrics, it is definitely memorable but not for long. This may be called the title track as the words, 'Chashme Baddoor' feature in the track.

The remix version of the track offers you rap, old world charm and contemporary beats - you cannot miss this one.

Next is "Ishq Mohalla", sung by Mika Singh. The song boasts characteristic orchestra from the era of Laxmikant Pyaarelal. The orchestra is so brilliantly done that it just might spread like a viral in the future baraats!

A song with a rock touch to it, 'Andha ghoda race main dauda' adds more fun to the album. A very different track when compared to the rest of the album, it serves as a good tail-ender for "Chashme Baddoor". Neuman Pinto does a good job behind the mike and takes the track to the league of "DK Bose".

"Chashme Baddoor" as expected does not have a single dull moment and keeps you smiling through and through. Revisit the simple joys of the 1980s with this one!
