When David Dhawan, Vashu Bhagnani and 'No. 1' in the film's title come together, there is no introduction required for the genre of the movie. 'Shaadi No. 1' is one such film that is destined to get the magic running for the Dhawan-Bhagnani pairing that has a string of 'No. 1' comedy entertainers behind it.

With comedies rooling the roost this season, there is no reason why this Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan, Sharmaan Joshi, Ayesha Takia, Esha Deol and Soha Ali Khan starrer should not work. Add to this Sanjay Dutt along with bombshells Ria Sen, Aarti Chabbaria and Sophie and you have all reasons to have a fiery Diwali this November. Anu Malik and Sameer who worked together for some naughty songs in this year's blockbuster come together again for 'Shaadi No. 1' and promise yet another fun-filled score.

1) Chand Ko Tod Doonga [Abhijeet, Anuradha Sriram]

Remember 'Kurta Faad Ke' from Govinda starrer 'Anari No.1'? In the same mould and feel comes 'Chand Ko Tod Doonga' that caters entirely to the masses. From the beats to the 'chalu' lyrics to the 'masti-se-bharpoor' style of rendition by Abhijeet and Anuradha Sriram - everything has been packaged together to come up with a song that caters only to a specific section of the audience. After all how many guys can you really see singing home stuff like 'Main Nimbu Pyaar Waala Tujhpe Nichod Doonga'?

2) Jitne Channel TV Ke [Sonu Nigam, Krishna]

One is surprised to see Krishna, a voice alike of Nusrat Fateh Khan, accompanying Sonu Nigam to sing the lines 'TV Chale Remote Se, Biwi Chale Hai Note Se'! Lyrics of the track take you back at least 10 years back while the music too just gets stuck in the same time period. Yet another song catering to the front benchers, it may manage to bring in some laughs in a theatre if accompanied by genuinely funny visuals, but that's about it!

3) God Promise Dil Dola [Rahul Vaidya, Shreya Ghoshal]

The feel of the album remains the same with a 'No Entry' hangover quite apparent in 'God Promise'. The song is special for Rahul Vaidya [Indian Idol finalist] who makes his debut as a playback singer with this love song that follows the same genre as the rest of the album. The _expression of love is in the same way as all David Dhawan's films have and its no different here. Shreya Ghoshal, who began her career with soft melodies joins the gang of hardcore commercial 'masala' tracks and does well.

4) Hello Madam [Rahul Vaidya, Prajakta Shukre]

This time around, it's the turn of Prajakta Shukre, one of the Top-10 finalists of Indian Idol to come together with Rahul Vaidya. The pair does a good job together and makes a mark with a confident beginning. A song with a party setting, it is catchy but doesn't really come up as a blockbuster material. It is a kind of number that comes, entertains and goes off after the movie's run at the theatres is through. Nothing everlasting about it.

5) Dil Nahin Toda Karte [Shaan, Sunidhi Chauhan]

A song belonging to the style of the 70s, 'Dil Nahin Toda Karte' is a simple love song with child-like innocence. A rhythmic track, it doesn't break any new grounds but still manages to stay afloat due to some good singing by Shaan and Sunidhi. Overall, this track too settles down as an average track, just like the rest of the tracks.

6) Aiyaashi [Shaan, DJ Aqueel and Sanjeev, lyrics: Shabbir Ahmed, music, DJ Aqueel]

The only track in the album that could help the sales of 'Shaadi No. 1' is Aiyaashi and ironically it is the only track that is not composed by Anu Malik. DJ Aqueel's only composition in the album may not really jump to the numero uno position in the charts on the day of the release but does excite to some extent due to its fast pa
