A rom-com film by Illuminati Films that starts Saif Ali Khan (obviously), Ileana D’Cruz, Kalki Koechlin, Govinda and Ranvir Shorey. Now that looks like a fun team of actors! Moreover, we’ve got Kareena Kapoor and Preity Zinta doing “cameo” roles in the film, which seems to be the new word of Bollywood. The film releases on November 21st, 2014. As for the music album, it has quite some controversial and interesting songs that have caught the media’s eyes!
1. Mileya Mileya
Sung by Rekha Bhardwaj, Jigar Saraiya and Priya Andrews, this song is absolutely beautiful! It’s a romantic song that has a classical touch and yet very fresh and superb great beats! The song is song very, very well, especially Rekha Bhardwaj, who’s voice sounds almost like trans! Haven’t heard something like this since a long while now!
2. Paaji Tussi Such a Pussycat
As the lyrics suggest, this nonsensical track gives completely college feel. It’s quite lame, and somewhere it is obvious that they’ve tried too hard to make it fun, funny, cool, or whatever they have tried to do. The song is sung by Amitabh Bhattacharya, Jigar Saraiya, and Divya Kumar. It’s horrible, horrible, horrible!
3. Jaise Mera Tu
An Arijit Singh number which means that this is an exaggerated romantic song that can either make someone feel in love, or want to cry. With high-pitched singing and anoverly romantic “let’s go to heaven together” kind of feel, this song is just another by Arijit Singh, and Priya Saraiya of course, who keeps up with his pace. It’s a bit of a *yawn* song.
4. G Phaad Ke
Approved by the sensor board, this song has been quite the talk lately. But then, thanks to Yo Yo, we are getting used to these kind of songs now. The song starts with some want-to-be rap in the club, and then the rest follows as expected. Sung by Divya Kumar and Shefali Alvares, this song is random, and again tries too hard to get attention. In fact, it screams for attention! Don’t like it. Not one bit. I have no clue what’s going on there.
4. Khamma Ghani
What sounds like a traditional folk song from its title is quite a nice song. Papon, Smita and Vidhi are the singers, who give a good feel to the song. It does get repetitive very soon, but I get the quirky style they are trying to carry forward.
4. Haseena Tu Kameena Mein
The song begins with some cool beats, but when Siddhart Basru, Rahul Pandey and Shruti Pathak start singing, you wonder why this song was ruined so badly. The lyrics are not entertaining at all. This song, I suppose is meant to sum up the entire film’s heartbeat. The tune is nice, sort of addictive, but it sounds a little familiar. I really cannot recall where I’ve heard this before. Oh well, good for them!
The album is a very strange mix of romantic songs and ridiculous songs. It’s an attempt to sound cool, young and upbeat. But it’s not doing a good job, and can be easily ignored and forgotten.
