Music Review; Hasee Toh Phasee (2014) *Sidharth Malhotra - Parineeti Chopra*
Director: Vinil Mathew
Cast: Sidharth Malhotra & Parineeti Chopra
Music Director: Vishal-Shekhar (All Track)
Lyricist: Amitabh Bhattacharya & Kumaar
Expectations: Vishal-Shekhar, the talented duo, has impressed us with creative tunes and beautiful music in past. Their last music album 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein' was really a good music album. We expect this one to be a youthful and a fresh music album.
1- Punjabi Wedding Song - (Sunidhi Chauhan & Benny Dayal): As the title of the track suggests, it is a wedding song. Starts with Dhol which set the mood of the track. It's a great fusion of traditional instruments and English lyrics. We expect this track to be played often on weddings. A full on masti and lively song. Benny Dayal and Sunidhi Chauhan are as usual great. Rating 3.5/5
2- Shake It Like Shammi - (Vishal Dadlani & Benny Dayal): Again a full on masti song, kinda Pritam-ish. It will work with urban youth listeners for sure. Both singers, Vishal and Benny Dayal do an amazing job. The hook line 'Beat baje toh I gotta Shake it like Shammi' is catchy. Lyrics are good. Rating 3/5
3- Drama Queen - (Vishal Dadlani & Shreya Ghoshal): Should we call it an item number for 'class audience'? The track works big time due to melodious and beautiful tune, witty lyrics and damn catch hook line 'Yeh Chhori Badi Drama Queen Hai'. This will surely going to be a party track in near future. Vishal is as usual energetic and Shreya is simply superb. Her vocals are heavenly. Rating 4/5
5- Zehnaseeb - (Chinmayi Sripaada & Shekhar Ravjiani): Another beautiful romantic track sung by two talented singers. A simple tune, but good arrangement. Chinmayi (who has sung 'Titli' for Vishal-Shekhar in Chennai Express) & Shekhar complement each other well. Lyrics are beautifully written. Rating 4.5/5
6- Ishq Bulaava - (Sanam Puri & Shipra Goyal): Starts with a simple yet effective piano riff. The track will take time to grow on you, but once it has groen on you, you simply can't skip it. Punjabi lyrics are beautifully written. This is a slow, soulful romantic track. Sanam Puri, who is the lead singer of Mumbai based pop band 'SQS Project' has done a fab job behind the mic. Shirpa Goyal has not much to do in the song, but she was good in her little part. Rating 4.5/5
Note: The music album of 'Hasee Toh Phasee' turned out to be a really really good album. It's very different from Vishal-Shekhar's last album 'Gori Tere Pyaar Mein'. You simply can't miss this album. DO LISTEN!
Repeat Value.. 4.5/5
AVERAGE RATING: 4.25/5
