Krazzy 4 marks the return of the much talented duo of Rakesh and Rajesh Roshan. The only difference this time being that the film isn't being directed by Rakesh Roshan but debutant Jaideep. Unlike the previous film under this prestigious banner, Hrithik Roshan doesn't feature as the main lead in the film and the film is an out an out comedy unlike Krrish.
The album opens with Vishal Dadlani of the Vishal-Shekar duo lending his voice to a pulsating number-'Break Free'. The beats are fast and thumping. It surely makes you feel like grooving. The lyrics is a mix of simple Hindi and English words that are sure to go with all sections of the audience. Also the SRK factor added to the song has already got the song the right amount of buzz.
'Krazzy 4' another breathtaking number by Vishal Dadlani is more or less another version of the 'Break Free' number. This track too carries the same beats the same punch and actually it is really difficult for one to know the difference between the two tracks. These tracks indeed register the title in our minds with the repetitive occurrence of the letters 'K-R-A-Z-Z-Y'. Indeed good enough to market the film but not all that great from the album compilation point of view.
'Dekhta hai tu kya' is the typical bollywood "nacch-gaana" number. The track is crooned by Sunidhi Chauhan supported by Kirti Sagathia and lyrics penned by Javed Akhtar. It isn't the best track that has come your way and does not give you the Omakara kind of feel but is just ok. In fact the visuals are what is sure to get the track registered . Irrfan Khan drooling over Rakhi Sawant in the video of this track is a good watch.
'Ik Rupiya' is a humorous number with the theme of begging and taking a loan for money etc. The track has an ensemble of voices right from the actors in the film- Irrfan Khan, Arshad Warsi, Rajpal Yadav to the voices of Sudesh Bhosle, Kirti Sagathia, Labh Jajua, Rahul Vaidya, Jimmy Moses, Bhavin Dhanak. The track promises some witty on screen visuals and has some witty lines in it but is purely a situational one.
'O re Lakkad' is a folkish number with the theme of friendship .Sowmya Raoh , Neeraj Sridhar and Kailash Kher lend their voices to lyrics by Javed Akhtar. The track is purely average and is not too inspirational in its blend of music and lyrics. The track is situational and we will wait and watch whether the visuals are good enough to hold this number.
The album concludes with Ankita Sachdeva's rendition of the national anthem 'Jan Gan Man' done with utmost patriotism and honour.
2 years since his last composition, Rakesh Roshan returns with an album that really lacks variety. A major chunk of the album is occupied by the title track and its variants. The other numbers are purely situational and fail to impress specially when it comes from an ace like Rajesh Roshan. Now doubt, all credit goes to Rajesh for the 'Break Free' and 'Krazzy4' number that is surely one of the greatest hits of the year. The variants of the track are sure to be played over and over again right from the various lounges , discos etc to the 'Dinchak' rickshaws around.
