Shaadi No.1 Music
It's the season of infidelity. After a
thunderous response to No Entry, fasten
your seat belts to witness one more hilarious
take on infidelity that has triple the 'masti'
than a 'Masti' or a 'No Entry'.
That's because while Lara Dutta and Bipasha Basu
played femme fatale in three men's lives in the
aforementioned movies, in Shaadi No. 1
there are three ladies doing the honors – Ria
Sen, Aarti Chabbaria and Sophie.
Men who fall to their charms? Fardeen Khan,
Zayed Khan and Sharmaan Joshi! Women who want to
save their marriage and call it 'Shaadi No. 1'?
Ayesha Takia, Esha Deol and Soha Ali Khan.
Man who helps the ladies in doing so? Sanjay
Dutt in yet another comic role!
Producer and director at the helm? Vashu
Bhagnani and David Dhawan, who return after a
hiatus to recreate No. 1 magic.
With Anu Malik and Sameer pairing up for the
music, one expects a rollicking tuneful ride.
First song 'Chand Ko Tod Doonga' begins
and sets an expectation right away. Don't expect
anything melodious or award winning tracks from
the album. Instead get set for a fun ride that
would make you tap your feet and enjoy the song.
Theme of the track, which is sung vibrantly by
Abhijeet and Anuradha Sriram is simple - "I am
gonna leave everything if you say yes, even the
lady I am presently going around with". Now a
deal couldn't get any more straight forward and
honest than this. And just imagine that till
last week we thought 'live-in' relationships
were cool! A purely mass oriented song, don't
get anywhere near the song if you haven't liked
the soundtrack of Coolie No.1, Judwaa or
'Jitne Channel TV Ke, Utne Nakhre Biwi Ke'
– now do you need any more details about the
genre and the content of this album? With 'bhangra'
beats and rap-n-reggae accompanying lyrics
like 'TV chale remote se, biwi chale remote se',
you very well know how serious is the situation,
for which the tune has been composed. Sung by
Sonu Nigam and Krishna, it is a kind of track
that guarantees some lively & funny
picturisation that should do well on the screen;
though don't expect yourself humming this track
on the streets.
Indian Idol finalist Rahul Vaidya makes his
debut with 'God Promise Dil Dola', yet
another 'Beat 1-Beat 2' number around the theme
of 'I fell in love with you at the first sight'.
One doesn't really need to talk much about the
talent of Rahul as it is world known since the
Indian Idol days. He makes a confident debut and
adapts himself well to the 'latka-jhatka' stuff
that Anu Malik makes him do for his first ever
song, which is quite reminiscent to 'Dil To
Dil Hai' from recently released 'No Entry'.
Shreya Ghoshal gives Rahul company in this duet
and plays her part well
Cheers, because Rahul Vaidya gets to sing yet
another track this time along with yet another
Indian Idol finalist Prajakta Shukre who bags
her debut playback song as well. Both singers
make a fresh pairing for 'Hello Madam', a
rollicking party dance number. Rahul Vaidya is
particularly impressive as he sings like a pro
with at least a few dozens songs behind him. And
yes, his 'inspired' singing as per Sonu Nigam
style is quite apparent, but he does such a good
job in doing it that it doesn't sound annoying
'Dil Nahin Toda Kar Te' has a simple tune
which is almost like a nursery rhyme. Sung by
Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan, it is average though
with a lively effect. A 'roothna-manana' track,
it doesn't make for a potential chartbuster but
nevertheless settles down as a passable tune. In
fact none of the tracks so far have HIT written
over it but still enable 'Shaadi No.1' to
be a decent time pass album.
Signature tune at the beginning of 'Aiyaashi'
is what gives the song an interesting beginning.
The only song written by Shabbir Ahmed and
composed by DJ Aqueel and Sanjeev, it also has
the two composers giving company to Shaan in
singing for the track. A fast paced track with
liberal dose of musical instruments thrown in,
it too settles down as an average to above
average tune without promising any earth
shattering reception to the album.
Overall 'Shaadi No.1' has some fine time
pass situational songs that may just about look
fine in the movie if treated well. But in terms
of a listener going all out for listening to the
album as and when getting an opportunity doesn't
sound too feasible as there is no single track
that has a power to setting the charts on fire.
An average soundtrack from Malik-Bhagnani-Dhawan
when one expected much-much better!
