Band Baaja Baaraat

YRF continues to infuse new blood into the industry by launching two newcomers in their upcoming flick Band Baaja Baarat – leading man Ranveer Singh and debutant director Maneesh Sharma. The film, which revolves around a pair of wedding planners in New Delhi, also stars another YRF discovery, Anushka Sharma, as the female lead.

The music, however, has been composed by the established duo, Salim and Sulaiman Merchant. The brothers have collaborated with YRF on earlier occasions including hit scores in films like Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi and Chak De.

Ainvayi ainvayi (Sunidhi Chauhan, Salim Merchant) is a vibrant Punjabi dance number. Lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya uses a smart mix of English and Hindi words to make this song particularly catchy. For Salim and Sunidhi, the genre is familiar territory and they render this track with enthusiasm and style. Upbeat and entertaining, it won’t be long before this song is blaring on every radio station!

Aadha ishq (Shreya Ghosal) is a pleasing melody that gives Shreya enough scope to display her vocal range and she is fabulous. But there is an air of predictability around this composition that fails to make it special. But Mitra (Salim Merchant, Amitabh Bhattacharya) gets it right! This love ballad is woven around a soft rock tune and singer Amitabh Bhattacharya is marvellous.

The pick of the lot is Tarkeebein (Benny Dayal, Salim Merchant). A charming melange of urban and traditional instruments coupled with Bhattacharya’s inspiring lyrics, this one impresses almost instantly. Benny and Salim add an urban flair to their rendition that makes this track sound trendy and youthful.

The full-blown shaadi number Baari barsi (Labh Jajua, Harshdeep Kaur, Salim Merchant) is quite banal and could have done with a new twist and Dum dum is a strictly average dance track redeemed to a large extent by its singers Benny Dayal and Himani Kapoor.

Verdict: A notch above average.
