Music Review; Bewakoofiyaan (2014) *Sonam Kapoor - Ayushmann Khurrana*


Director: Nupur Asthana 
Cast: Ayushmann Khurrana & Sonam Kapoor
Music Director: Raghu Dixit (All Track except bonus track), Ayushmann Khurrana, Rochak Kohli (Bonus Track)
Lyricist: Anvita Dutt (Track # 1, 3, 4, 5), Habib Faisal (Track # 2), Ayushmann Khurrana, Rochak Kohli (Bonus Track)

1- Gulcharrey - (Benny Dayal & Aditi Singh Sharma): Very energetic and masti track. It gets more energetic after first stanza as Nagada is being introduced. Tune is catchy and music arrangements are really great. It is all and all Benny Dayal's show. He sings it with total dedication and enthusiasm and conquer this high pitch track. Aditi Singh Sharma has almost nothing to do in this track. Lyrics are good and the term 'Gulcharrey' sounds very nice. Rating 3.5/5

2- Khamakhaan - (Ayushmann Khurrana, Neeti Mohan): Starts with Neeti Mohan's vocals without music and she sounds amazing. The track is built on a rich guitar base and the usage of Flute is flawless and makes the track a true winner. Lyrics, by Habib Faisal, are superb with fun and masti elements. Neeti Mohan's singing is top notch & she steals the show. Ayushmann Khurrana, as usual, is commendable behind the mic. A must listen song. Rating 4/5

3- Bewakoofiyaan - (Raghu Dixit): Title track starts with some notes which have yesteryear feeling. But as the song proceeds, this feeling fades away. It gets much more innovative and fresh, so innovative that it may not work for everyone, though we really liked the sounds and arrangements. The composer himself is behind the mic for this track and does a praiseworthy job. Specially the way he sings the term 'Bewakoofiyaan', is so innovative and creatively so beautiful. Lyrics are good and suits perfectly the type of track. Rating 3.5/5

4- Rumaani Sa - (Mohit Chauhan & Shreya Ghoshal): Raghu Dixit brings a lot of innovation and modification to this romantic track, so it doesn't sound a typical one. Guitar is played beautifully. The hook line is catchy. Shreya Ghoshal's vocals are as usual heavenly sweet and she sings perfectly. Mohit Chauhan is also good, but we wish he could have shown more enthusiasm. Lyrics are beautiful. Rating 3/5

5- Aye Jigida - (Vishal Dadlani): It seems a situation-oriented track. Very interesting composition and different one also. There are guitars and violins and banjo and harmonium here. Vishal's performance behind the mic is power-packed. Lyrics are well-written. Extra .5 points for interesting music arrangements. Rating 3.5/5

6- O Heeriye (Additional Track) - (Ayushmann Khurrana): This track was released last year and went unnoticed. And there was a reason for that; the weakest work the pair (Ayushmann Khurrana, Rochak Kohli) has produced yet – dated tune and middling arrangement. It's a Punjabi pop ballad which simply doesn't work. The only good thing about the track is Ayushmann Khurrana's performance behind the mic. His vocals are really good. Rating 2/5

REVIEW OVERVIEW:

Freshness.. 8/10
Compositions.. 7/10
Lyrics.. 7.5/10
Singing.. 8/10
Repeat Value.. 6.5/10


7.4/10
