Shootout At Wadala

Sanjay Gupta’s multi-starrer Shootout at Wadala (SAW) is one of the more highly anticipated films this summer. Gupta’s films are known for their stylised action pieces and lavish item numbers. And going by the promos, his latest flick has plenty of both! The soundtrack of SAW, composed by an array of music directors, boasts six original songs and five remix numbers.
Anu Malik uses a common trumpet motif in both his item numbers Babli abhi badmaash and Ala re ala. Babli abhi badmaash, a retro-style disco number, isn’t exactly scorching, but Sunidhi Chauhan’s robust singing definitely gets your attention. Malik has clearly been inspired by RD Burman (Shaan) and Kalyanji Anandji (Jaanbaaz) here.
He tries hard to mix genres in Ala re ala but the result is a muddled track that can’t decide if it wants to stay in the seductive cabaret space or become a percussion-heavy folksy song.
Anand Raaj Anand’s sole composition Laila is a cheesy, naughty item number specifically targeted at frontbenchers. Mika Singh is clearly having a blast and that reflects in his singing. The song doesn’t have a shelf life but Sunny Leone’s presence will ensure some traction.
Aye manya (Adnan Sami, Shaan) is an attempt to create a languidly-paced catchy song like Rama re from Gupta’s earlier flick Kaante. But Meet Bros Anjjan end up creating a mish-mash that sounds like Jai maa kali (Karan Arjun) in some parts and entirely nondescript in others. The spoken stanzas by Anil Kapoor and John Abraham are the highlights of Goli (Meet Bros, Sudesh Bhonsle), a dark anthem-like situational track that should work well as a background number.
The best track in the album is Yeh junoon, a soulful ballad composed and sung by Mustafa Zahid. The Pakistani rock artiste renders this love song with passion and a longing that seems heartfelt.
Compared to Gupta’s earlier films, the soundtrack of SAW is a bit of a letdown.

Verdict: Disappointing.
