Slated to be one of the most anticipated movies of
is all set to
hook the audience in an endearing journey of modern day romance and comedy set
against a traditional backdrop. The flick marks the Bollywood debut of Pakistan's
versatile actor Fawad Khan alongside the chirpy fashionista Sonam Kapoor. Loosely based on the
1980 film of the same title, Khoobsurat
is launched under the Disney's banner and has been directed by Shashanka Ghosh.
Producers Anil Kapoor, Rhea Kapoor and Siddharth Roy Kapur also roped in Sneha
Khanwalkar, of Gangs of Wasseypur
 fame to compose the music.
After a September 1, 2014 release, BollyCurry undertakes the
task of giving the album a listen and penned down our thoughts. Read on to see
whether the music is as promising as the trailer.
With ample teasers in the trailer itself, "Engine Ki Seeti"
opens the album, inevitably. Sunidhi Chauhan and Resmi Sateesh lend their
beautiful voices for this fresh and exhilarating track. Nailing the "fun"
factor, Khanwalkar did a splendid job with Ikram Rajasthani's quirky lyrics. Using
instruments to a great advantage, the song utilizes the sound of a train, making it a catchy number.
Punjabi rapper, Badshah, sings his own composed track, "Abhi
Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai" together with Aastha. Also written by Badshah,
song easily became an instant favourite for the playlists with its
Incorporating a fair share of instruments and Badshah's immaculate
rapping. This track also happens to be the promotional track for the
movie, and has already become a huge rage among party-goers.
"Baal Khade" is penned by Sunil Choudhary. Relatively less
hyped than the initial two songs, Sunidhi Chauhan did a remarkable job with the
vocals. The beats of the drums resonate throughout the song giving it a
traditional feel; however, it ceases to gain the desired effect.
Jasleen Kaur Royal sings "Preet" to glory. Soothingly soft
and beautiful, this track is one that tugs at the listener's heartstrings. Amitabh Verma
penned the amazing lyrics whilst the music makes it a memorable track. Eliminating
any messy instrumentals and heavy background score, the song is bound to be a
Priya Panchal and Mauli Dave team up to conclude the album
with "Maa Ka Phone". With lyrics by Sneha Khanwalkar and Amitabh Verma, the
repeated chorus tends to get out of control a minute into the track. The beats
are catchy and head bobbing, but nothing interesting otherwise.
Khoobsurat's album is
short indeed however, it is average at best. Nonetheless, this immediately
raises the expectation level for the movie itself. Khoobsurat is expected to release in the theatres on the 19th
September, 2014 and BollyCurry wishes the entire team success for their
venture. Be sure to give the album a listen and tell us your thoughts in the
