The much awaited film released on April 25th , 2014, is about the kindom of Alka (more interestingly referred to as Revolver Rani), her political battle and some saucy, sexy romance with toy boy Rohan. Kangana Ranaut once again, back-to-back, plays the lead role, and does an incredible job at it. Her love (read “sex”) interest is played by Vir Das. The movie is a crime drama with the focus on politics vs. love and sex. The music album of the film as interesting as the film’s plot!
The title track, of course, sung by the unforgettable Usha Uthup. Kick-ass and super-addictive. The music, the dialogues, Usha Uthup’s voice, the lyrics. Woohoo! The song, so perfectly Bollywood, so perfectly retro, is pretty much the story of Revolver Rani.
The Reprise Version is slightly more modern and sober, but not as superb as the original track.
Thaayein Kare Katta
Sung by Piyush Mishra, this song is once again about the story of Revolver Rani. It’s just great, and secretly, makes anyone groove with it with ultra-awesome slow motion moves.
Kaafi Nahi Chaand
Asha Bhosle surprises you with this beautiful, soft and emotional number. The song makes the story of the film even more intriguing. She does a beautiful job as usual, and the music is again quite retro, and the song, very romantic.
Chal Lade Re Bhaiya
This number is all about the film’s obsession of fighting. The singers’ team is Piyush Mishra, Abhishek Mukherjee and Mayur Vyas. The music beats are good, but the song is just about okay.
Sulgi Hui Hai Raakh
Chilling. The song puts more effort in being serious here. The music is really good, and the song is sung very well by Sanjeev Srivastava and Gorisa. A beautiful piece of story in the form of music.
The best of a Punjabi folk number in the voice of Rekha Bhardwaj. The song is a wedding number dedicated to Alka (Kangana).
I Am Brutal
Tough, strong and, well, brutal. And absolutely hilarious. Sung by Sanjeev Srivastava, the track just makes me impatient about the movie’s release. Whether it’s the music beats, the way the song is sung, or simply the nonsensical lyrics, it is a fantastic number.
Saawan Ki Aye Hawa
This track, sung in Garima Aneja’s beatiful voice, is an interesting combination of folk and new, hot beats. A romantic love song that’s old-style yet very, very fresh. There is rap by Rahul Gandhi that is different than any other rap you will have ever heard. A crazy fusion song.
Bol Rahi Hai Payal
Again, a very 80’s sounding song, from the music to the lyrics, as well as the way the song is sung by Anweshaa and Avi Dutta. This sing is absolutely skippable in this fantastic album.
Chanda Ki Katori Hai (Lorie)
The song is a lorie, obviously. Though Garima Aneja has sung the song very well, it is still very boring and almost creepy. The other version sung by Piyush Mishra is less creepy but still boring.
Pehle Lohe Ki Chingaari
Another action-packed song with passion, aggression, depression, and everything that is synonym to the Revolver Rani album. Sung by Sameera, Gorisa, Keka and Manjeera in chorus, this song is extra-dramatic and quite gory.
We mix You Michael Jackson
Sung by Saleem Javed, the song is an average mix of Micheal Jackson’s pop and Bollywood’s retro. The song is supposed to be fun or funny, but it does a poor job at both.
This romantic number by Moin Sabri is very smooth and soothing. The lyrics are a thoughtful play of beautiful words. Unlike most love songs, this one is quite unique!
To sum up, this is a very “dhinchak” album, with some retro music, some action in the background, and a powerful protagonist – Kangana Ranaut.
