Khoobsurat Music Review - "Let's party? Nah! Let's trip!"
Music: Sneha Khanwalkar, Badshah
1. Abhi Toh Party Shuru Hui Hai
One would easily mistake this as a Yo Yo Honey Singh composition. More when he/she'll hear all the references made to his earlier songs in this one. But it's by a certain Badshah - yet another rapper from Punjab - who showcases the same style. Supported by electronic voice of Astha, the track is charged enough.
2. Engine Ki Seeti
Known to bring lesser known folk singers in the light for their Bollywood debut (as in Oye Lucky, Lucky Oye and Gangs Of Wasseypur), Khanwalkar gets South Indian singer Resmi Sateesh on board for this one. Derived from a Rajasthani folk tune, mainly sung by Sunidhi Chauhan, Engine Ki Seeti has imaginative sounds that one would identify to this Sound Tripper (manipulated train engine whistle) but the lyrics are excruciatingly cringe-worthy.
3. Baal Khade
Khanwalkar creates superb trippy environment in this one developed majorly on processed vox of Sunidhi Chauhan. Tripping onto it with the lyrics, she throws it in full trance.
Preet, lyrically, is a modern take on Shakeel Badayuni's 'Jo Main Janti Bichhrat Hain Saiyyaan'. The composition is hauntingly gorgeous with serene dream-like feel and Jasleen Royal's innocent voice suits it well.
5. Maa Ka Phone
Khanwalkar is in her top form here blending Punjabi as well as Carnatic percussions into electronic music (with those phone dial-tones, of course, as the title goes) for this completely out-of-the-box wacky composition. Backing this song are the ladies Mauli Dave, Priya Panchal and Khanwalkar herself. The complementing lyrics by Amitabh Varma is a riot too.
When repetitive party songs are making the rage, Sneha Khanwalkar keeps up with her distinctive style of trippy music and completely owns the soundtrack just as she always does.
