musi review of shirin farhad ki toh nikal padi

Filmmaker and choreographer Farah Khan steps into the world of acting with a not-so-usual romantic comedy "Shirin Farhad Ki Toh Nikal Padi", which has six tracks exuding true blue romance.

The album starts off with a tender number "Ishq mein tere bina". It has an interesting sound full of guitar strums, making it a good composition. The melodious voices of Shreya Ghoshal and KK elevate your mood, as does its peppy beats. The lyrics are simple, but effective and marks a fine beginning to the album.

Moving on, the next is a beautiful romantic ballad "Khatti meethi". The piano tunes weave the magic in this one, and Shreya adds to that magic here. Also upping the ante of this melodic track are the Hinglish (Hindi-English) lyrics and an excellent chorus.

The next on the playlist is "Kaafir andhere", which starts off with a bang thanks to the amazing guitar riffs. Then it is singer KK's show all the way. This powerful rock ballad is just perfect. It hits the bull's-eye in every department - tone, composition or its poignant words. This gloomy, yet expressive track grows on you and makes you play it on loop. It's definitely going to rise up in musical charts.

Then comes the the title track "Shirin Farhad ki toh nikal padi". A racy and full of beats number, it has been crooned by Neeraj Sridhar. Although it doesn't qualify as a dance number, the song can definitely not be ignored. The high point of the song is the chorus that supports the vocalist quite well.

Following it is the soft and soothing "Kukuduku", which has an acoustic touch coupled with the sound of flute and bass beats. Singer Mohit Chauhan does a wonderful job like always, but the listeners get to hear his voice in a different avatar. It's not one of his typical romantic numbers. But this one is definitely one of the better tracks bundled in the soundtrack.

Last but not the least is "Ramba mein samba". What a delight it is to listen to the vintage Usha Uthup! Full of electronic elements, this song will definitely allure you to put on your shoes for a bit of Samba. Indian instruments like dhol and harmonium have been used here, but Uthup's powerful voice takes away the cake. Apart from her vocals, there is nothing too great about the composition of this track as it falls short of expectation after providing an initial high.

The overall verdict of the album is a mixed bag of emotions. The soundtrack is definitely not a show stealer, but sample it for the variety of romantic flavours it offers.
