A Sallu-starrer produced by Sajid Nadiadwala, Kick is an official remake of the Telegu film Kick (2009). We’ve got Jacqueline Fernandez, Randeep Hooda, and Nawazuddin Siddiqui in lead roles along with Salman Khan. The movie is an excitement for the Salman fans, but other than that, no one cares. The music is by Himesh Reshammiya and almost every song has a Salman-sung version to it.
1. Jumme Ki Raat
Though sung well by Mika Singh and Palak Muchhal, Jumme Ki Raat is a song that no one will remember or even acknowledge. There is one version sung by Salman as well, which sounds exactly the same as the Mika-version. Then there are two remix versions, one sung by Mika and the other by Salman. Why? I don’t know. The video has got Salman Khan doing a series of odd step and Jacqueline in a dumb secretary look who half way through the video turns into a hot babe in a tight, short red dress.
Salman’s debut as singer, along with Shreya Ghoshal and Meet Bros Anjjan. Sadly, this love song is not that great. In fact, not at all. I am sure you’ve already heard this song on the radios and TV, as it has been heavily promoted as “In Salman’s voice”. But the song is annoying, and lame. To make matters worse, there is a MBA swag version. I have no clue what that’s supposed to mean, but the music is much catchy, but not enough. There is also another remix version. In the video there is an attempt to create a magical feel and pass it on to the audience. But I doubt they were successful at that.
3. Tu Hi Tu
A sad/romantic song that is, for a change, nice. The lyrics are nice, the music is peaceful, and singer Mohammed Irfan has done a good job. Yet, midway it gets boring, probably because the song is too long. The reprise version is sung by Neeti Mohan, again sung beautifully. Salman has given it a shot for this song as well, and he sounds pretty good as well, though there is a strange echo behind (I don’t know if that has been done intentionally). There are three remixes, sung by each singer, and they are horrible with a very annoying and amateur rap beginning!
4. Yaar Na Miley
Like any Yo Yo Honey Singh song, this one also starts with some great beats. Jasmine’s voice is different, giving the song a different flavour. But the lyrics are strange too strange, and the music is just about okay. Yo Yo is pretty average as well, with no addictiveness to the song unlike most of his songs. He has clearly not given his best shot for this song.
A rubbish album with one nice song, and 5 versions of each song. Save yourself and don’t listen to the songs (or watch the movie).
