Known for his comic timing and punch lines, Kapil Sharma is all set to make his acting debut in Bollywood with Abbas-Mustan’s Kis Kisko Pyaar Karoon. The director duo has got several new composers to create nine tracks for the album. Being a situational album, the songs are a tad chaotic, with too much happening all at the same time.
The album opens with a dance number Jugni peeke tight hai sung by Kanika Kapoor and Divya Kumar. Having sung chartbusters like Baby doll and Chittiyaan kalaiyaan, Kapoor has used a similar style for this track, whereas Kumar has tried his best to bring in the much-needed freshness. The run-of-the-mill composition by Amjad-Nadeem features the regular Arabic tunes, blended with a regular dance number. Sadly, the lyrics of Arafat Mehmood don’t escalate the song. The song also comes in a different version sung by Sukriti Kakar. There isn’t much of a difference in terms of music but Kumar’s vocals shine through in both tracks.
The song featured in the trailer, DJ bajega to pappu nachega, is sung by Wajid, Ritu Pathak, Danish Sabri and Shalmali Kholgade. Although the track comes off as a dance number, the composers, Javed-Mohsin, have tried to give it a traditional touch by bringing in the Marathi and Gujarati flavour. Going by the sound and treatment, it seems like a celebratory number in the film. The energetic singing uplifts the song and it is quite enjoyable.
The album gets a melodic touch with Samandar sung by Jubin Nautiyal and Shreya Ghoshal. It takes listeners on a nostalgic trip as it sounds like Falak tak chal (Tashan, 2008). Composed by Tanishk Bagghi, the serene tune is a treat for the ears and is backed by meaningful lyrics penned by Arafat Mehmood. It is the only soft melody in the album.
Dance tracks once again take the lead, with Bam bam by Dr Zeus sung along with Kaur B. The track falls on the lines of Manali trance (The Shaukeens), but is not as addictive. The lyrics lack the much-needed quirkiness and the vocals of Kaur B are flat.
Next up, a Punjabi number, Billi kat gayee rastaa, sung by Rajveer Singh. Filled with Punjabi club beats, it is a typical situational number revolving around Kapil Sharma character’s turmoil of dealing with three wives in the film. The highlight of the track is the rap by Ikka. The song also comes in a remix version that features some added club tunes.
The album ends with a short track Hum to yaaro latak gaye sung by Kapil Sharma. Sharma impressively reflects his drunken state in this situational number. The music has been kept to the minimum with special focus on Sharma’s voice.
Verdict: An average album
