Music Review: Dedh Ishqiya - Only half as good as the original!

By Tulsi, News Network

Dedh Ishqiya, the sequel of Ishqiya, was released on 10th January 2014. The movie has the original cast Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah, this time opposite Madhuri Dixit and Huma Qureshi. Directed by Abhishek Chaubey and produced by Vishal Bhardwaj and Raman Maroo, this movie definitely sustains the original flavor of its first part, but we may not be able to say that about the film’s music. The album as 6 tracks, mostly classical art, and is not everyone’s cup of tea.

Horn OK Please

First of all, it’s Horn OK Pleej! Very much an expected song by the movie, and by Arshad Warsi, this is the best track of the movie. It’s the first song in the movie and it is all about Arshad Warsi and Naseeruddin Shah’s partnership and teamwork! Obviously, the best part of both the movies is their hilarious love-hate relationship. This song, such by Sukhwinder Singh, is all about that.

Dil Ka Mizaaj Ishqiya

Slow and soothing, this Rahat Fateh Ali Khan song starts with whistles, followed by a beautiful piano peace. This title track is simple and beautiful! There is also a remix version of this song, but somewhere the simplicity of the original track is lost there.

Zabaan Jale Hai

This song is romantic poetry. The heartfelt lyrics are piercing, and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s voice is apt. No one could have done a better job for this song than Naseeruddin Shah himself. Nevertheless, the song is too long for its nature, and too intense to listen to it more than once (once while watching the movie).

Hamari Atariya

A classical song that has been sung very well by Rekha Bhardwaj. What more can we say? Nothing, except that people who love such soul-feeding music would probably appreciate this.

Jagaave Saari Raina

One more classical song sung stunningly by Rekha Bhardwaj. However, the highlight of this song is undoubtedly the video where the country gets to watch Madhuri Dixit dance for a whole five and a half minutes.

Kya Hoga

A romantic qawali by Shahid Mallya, sung very well and soothing to the ears. That’s it.

Unlike the movie, the music album seems to be disappointing. While the movie is fun and entertaining, its songs are anything but that. The lyrics are too intense and the music too slow, turning it into a slightly boring album. Some call it a disappointing combination of the movie and its music, though some may look at it as a perfect balance between carefreeness and deepness, with two extremes coming together. But honestly, no one is going to listen to it again after the movie is over. The original Ishqiya’s songs were much better!
