After their successful debut in Student of the Year
Dhawan and Alia Bhatt are teaming up once again to burn the screens
with their intense chemistry. Under Dharma Productions and debutant
director Shashank Khaitan, the duo reunites in a different avatar in the
upcoming flick Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania
. This pair of talented newcomers will be working with renowned director and producer Karan Johar for the second time.
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania's official album released on 19th June,
2014. It features six varied songs, though the majority of the lyrics
have been penned by the talented Kumaar. BollyCurry took up the task to
go through the album and provide a review for your reading pleasure; so
read on to see what we think of the music of this high budget film.
up is the foot tapping song "Saturday
Saturday". This upbeat
Punjabi number has been recreated for the movie by the talented music
composing duo of Sharib and Toshi Sabri, and features the addition of
Akriti Kakar to provide female vocals. The original Punjabi song, also
of the same title, was sung by Indeep Bakshi and Badshah and composed by
the Titans and Badshah. This is the ultimate party song that has
already been making its way steadily up the charts. Definitely give this
fast paced dance song a listen!
Next up is "Samjhawan",
an adaptation from the classic "Main Tenu Samjhawan" sung by Rahat Fateh
Ali Khan. With the vocal combo of Arijit Singh, Shreya Ghoshal and the
Sharib-Toshi duo, this romantic number is soothing to the ears with the
soft instrumentals and easy lyrics, despite being Punjabi. The Sabri duo
teamed up with Jawad Ahmad to compose this magical number. While the
song fails to stand up to the original, it is definitely worthy of a
"Daingad Daingad" is a peppy number that brings together
the flavour of various talented artists - Deepali Sathe, Divya
Kumar, Niharika Sinha, Akriti Kakar, Pratibha Baghel and Udit Narayan.
This is a fun track composed by Sachin-Jigar. The uniqueness of this
track is bound to rock the dance floor at any typical wedding ceremony.
party number "Lucky Tu Lucky Me" is up next. This energetic and fresh
track is sure to be a hit at the parties due to its exceptional beats
and catchy lyrics. Benny Dayal and Anushka Manchanda did wonders with
the vocals, as did Varun Dhawan, despite the actor not being a singer.
Sachin-Jigar proved their worth once again with this composition.
its upbeat music, "Emotional Fool" is a Sharib and Toshi Sabri
dominated track. Not only did the dynamic duo compose the track, they
also lent their powerful vocals to make this track even more phenomenal.
With heavy beats and powerful instrumentals, "Emotional Fool" will have
one's foot tapping and head bobbing.
Finally, the soundtrack
concludes with "D Se Dance". This peppy number was sung by Vishal
Dadlani alongside Shalmali Kholgade and Anushka Manchanda. Sachin-Jigar
composed this Punjabi number that is a sure inclusion at a Sangeet's
playlist. Upbeat and instrument savvy throughout, it's hard to resist
getting up and shaking a leg.
Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania carries
an average album with a mixture of original and recreated songs. The
primary audience seems to be the younger generation who would most enjoy
the peppy and club-worthy songs. Owing to the fact that this will mark
the return of Varun Dhawan and Alia Bhatt's jodi, BollyCurry hopes that
the film lives up to the expectations of the audience. As we bid adieu,
we wish the entire team of Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhania all the best and
encourage you to give this album a listen and let us know your thoughts
