Himmatwala

Himmatwala (1983) turned Sridevi into an overnight sensation in Bollywood and won her the sobriquet Thunder Thighs! Over-the-top drama, slapstick humour, hit music and ridiculous choreography made it the highest grossing flick of the year back then.

Director Sajid Khan revisits this kitschy classic in his latest film that stars Ajay Devgn along with South Indian star Tamannah.

Sajid-Wajid stay true to Bappi Lahiri’s original composition in their version of Nainon mein sapna. It’s good to hear Amit Kumar who ably steps into his dad’s shoes, while Shreya Ghoshal sings Lata Mangeshkar’s part. The original has a high nostalgia factor that makes one invariably end up enjoying this latest version too. Ditto for the next track Taki taki that features Mika Singh and Ghoshal. Though the composers don’t stray too far from the legendary Bappi Lahiri’s composition, Mika manages to bring his own dynamism into this playful number.

Sajid-Wajid fail miserably when it comes to creating their own tracks for this album. Bum pe laat (Shaan, Soham and Shubh Mukherjee) deserve an instant fast-forward. Totally cringe worthy in spite of Shaan’s best efforts.

Dhoka dhoka featuring Bappida, melodious Sunidhi Chauhan and Mamta Sharma is a mix-up of dull, stereotypical climax songs from ’90s films. Give this one a skip too. Guest composers Sachin-Jigar manage to recreate the disco era of the ’80s quite successfully in their sole composition Thank God it’s Friday (Sunidhi Chauhan). Sunidhi is spot on in her rendition and gives the track the extra spark. If only the lyrics hadn’t been so banal.Finally, it’s the two Bappi Lahiri oldies that save the day for this otherwise damp squib of a soundtrack!

Verdict: Lacklustre
