Friday, December 7, 2012 • Hindi Comments

Director :Arbaaz Khan

Music :Sajid-Wajid

Lyrics : Sameer, Jalees Sherwani, Ashraf Ali and Irfan Kamal

Starring : Salman Khan, Sonakshi Sinha, Arbaaz Khan, Sonu Sood, Malaika Arora (guest appearance) and Kareena Kapoor (guest appearance)

After the stupendous success of songs like Hudd Hudd Dabangg Dabangg, Tere mast do nain and Munni badnaam Salman Khan comes with the sequel of Dabangg 2. Dabangg went on to create box office records music by Sajid - Wajid and Lalit Pandit also wrote chapters in recent b-town music history. Keeping the prequel in mind producer-director Arbaaz Khan has once again got the powerhouse duo Sajid Wajid  to churn out some mind boggling numbers. They have composed five tracks in all with the same energy and zest.

 Dagabaaz Re

Lyrics: Sameer

Singer: Rahat Fateh Ali Khan & Shreya Ghoshal

Album opens with Dagabaaz Re a sufiyana romantic number, which replaces Tere Mast Mast Do Nain this time. The song been shot on Salman Khan and Sonakshi Sinha depicts that  Chulbul Pandey and Rajjo have moved ahead in life.  Music duo Sajid Wajid once again brings a perfectly synchronized melody with pristine vocals by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The song like tere mast . is once again an earthy folk number with a lot of table beats followed by harmonium and saarangi.   It makes references to Chulbul in the film too.  Shreya Ghoshal's melodious voice compliments Rahat's as he goes on a higher level.   It definitely has a lot of repeat value.  The combination of Sajid-Wajid musical tempo with Faiz Anwars expressive lyrics and Rahat's soft voice has a lot of charm.  Do not miss this one.

Pandey Jee Seeti

Lyrics: Jaless Sherwani

Singer: Wajid, Shreya Ghoshal & Mamta Sharma

Salman in his element as the police inspector Chulbul Pandey  is funny rendered by Wajid, Shreya Ghoshal and Mamta Sharma this track has the flavor of the  catchy UP-Bihar style folk track  of the 60's Teesri Kasam hit Chalat Musafir Mohliye re...  It's an energetic dance number Mamta Sharma's and Shreya Ghoshal's add spice to the song in their own styles. The song begins with loads of seeti's and is sure to make way in the hearts of the audiences and will win a lot of taalis.

Fevicol Se

Lyrics: Sajid-Wajid and Ashraf Ali's

Singers: Mamta Sharma

If Malaika Arora enticed you with her moves in Munni Badnaam Hui song then Kareena  Kapoor has  added a lot of oomph and charm to her Fevicol  number. This one is a hit to the core and there's no doubt about it.  Mamta Sharma's sonorous husky vocals add to Wajid's piercing voice and later joined in tandem with choral supports of Keerthi Sagathia, Uvie and Shadaab Faridi in the backdrop. A racy track this song composed by Farah Khan again is a chart buster.  Lyrics by Sajid Wajid and Ashraf Ali are fun and hummable.  A definite winner in the album which will have several repeat values.

Saanson Ne

Lyrics: Irrfan Kamal

Singers: Sonu Nigam & Tulsi Kumar

Saanson Ne is a soft romantic track equivalent to Chori kiya Re Jiya from Dabangg. This number rendered by Sonu Nigam and Tulsi Kumar is melodious but cannot be compared to Chori Kiya .. track. Irrfan Kamal's lyrics are simple and hummable.  Music duo Sajid-Wajid melody adds to it. However this is a very regular track and does not hold much appeal.

Dabangg Reloaded

Lyrics: Jalees Sherwani

Singers: Sukhwinder Singh

After Hud Hud Dabangg Sajid Wajid come up Dabangg Reloaded next. This one comes as extension or sequel title track and Sukhwinder Singh renders this with a punch.  While Hud Hud along with the 'remix') is the kind that should set the tone of Dabangg 2 and visually it should be as dramatic and forceful as one expects from the film. However it does not stay with you for a long time. This is one number that you could certainly miss from the album.

Overall:

While Dabangg was a hit this album by Sajid Wajid lacks the novelty of the prequel. There are some numbers they could have worked on tried to recreate the Dabangg magic. While the three tracks Dagabaaz Re, Pandeyji Seeti and Fevicol Se will allure to the masses the other  two tracks may not so.   However on it's entirety this album is a chartbuster and hopefully the film will create the same track record as the prequel.

Rating: ***1/2
