Gang of Ghosts is India’s first ghost comedy flick. The film is about a haunted house full of ghosts. And not just normal ghosts, but those that belong to a different era altogether! The Sharman Joshi starrer releases on March 21, 2014. The movie also has Mahie Gill and Anupam Kher.
The first track, which appears to be the main track of the movie, is extremely weird. The song sung by Aishwarya Nigam links ghosts with Bollywood, and it doesn’t seem to make any sense. The humor or entertainment factor in this song is to forced and is neither humorous nor entertaining! If this is an attempt to promote the film as the first ghost comedy of Bollywood, it’s doing the exact opposite!
This number brings back the magic of black and white cinema. There are shy women with lots of eyeliner in gardens, and men in black suit and hats. The song has humor and is about a woman acting pricey (literally) with a man who is trying to woo her. The beautiful vocals are by Rupmatii Jolly, creating the perfect feel for the era.
Dasni Sharab Di
A sad Punjabi song on alcohol, with techno music in the background. Very outdated and boring. Sung by Aamir Ghulam Ali, Malkoo, A.K. and Deepali Sathe.
Ishq Behn Ka Dinna
This track is some sort of Punjabi rock that sounds interesting but holds odd lyrics. Sung by Vikas Kumar and Vishvesh Parmar, this song is all about the dangers of love. Except the music, it’s pretty vain.
Jaayen Toh Jaayen Kahan
Another olden era song, by Manoj Mishra, which is quite funny for a change. A song from a ghost’s troubles and point of view. It discloses the story of the movie to an extent.
As the title of the song states, this track is a parody of songs from the 80s, 90s, and 2000s songs. This song is senseless and definitely not enjoyable without the video. The singers are Sudesh Bhosle, Aishwarya Nigam, Manoj Mishra, and Abhishek.
An item number with peppy music and double meaning (quite audacious ones that too) lyrics. The singers are Malini Banerjee, Jonita Gandhi, Aishwarya Nigam and Sandeep Patil. Though quite okay in the first hear, the song has the potential to become growingly addictive.
Sheeshe Ka Dil
Sung by Rupmatii Jolly, the song is an overdramatic heartbreak song. It’s another black and white era song, which would probably be best heard with the video. Alone, it is not going to be heard, ever.
Most of the songs are plot-based and are about either ghosts or the olden times, but either way they are anything but funny. Overall a boring album with way too many failed attempts to offer giggles.
