music review of son of sardar

Film: "Son of Sardar"; Music Directors: Sajid-Wajid, Himesh Reshammiya and Sandeep Chowta; Lyricists: Sameer Anjaan, Shabbir Ahmed and Irshad Kamil; Singers: Himesh Reshamiya, Aman Trikha, Yo Yo Honey Singh, Mika Singh, Bhavya Pandit, Vikas Bhalla, Amit Trikha, Vineet Singh, Mamta Sharma, Ali Khan">Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Ajay Devgn. Rating: ***

The soundtrack of Ajay Devgn-starrer "Son of Sardaar" boasts of eleven tracks including eight original songs that have been composed by Sajid-Wajid, Himesh Reshammiya and Sandeep Chowta.

The first song in the album is the title track. It starts off with a spoof on the evergreen song 'Kabhie kabhie', followed by some heavy duty Punjabi beats. Crooned by Aman Trikha and Himesh, "Son of sardar" is full of fun and frolic. The dhol beats are peppy and the lyrics, penned by Shabbir Ahmed, support the song well. It also has a remixed version, which is decent.

Singer Yo Yo Honey Singh gets you grooving with his rap in "Rani tu main raja" and he is joined by Mika Singh and Bhavya Pandit in the vocals. There's a good fusion of western and Indian sounds in this number, while Sameer's lyrics are very simple. There is also a remixed version, which is fast and furious. Somehow, the remixed avatar is better than the original.

son of sardar music reviewNext up is "Po po", sung by Vikas Bhalla, Amit Trikha and Himesh Reshammiya. It has an absurd interlude that fails to amuse the listener. Penned by Shabbir Ahmed, the song projects itself as a bhangra track, but despite the desi feel, it doesn't click with the ears.

Riding on the Punjabi flavour, comes "Tu kamaal di kudi" that manages to please you and surely gets you in the mood to shake a leg. It features some powerful vocals by Vineet Singh and Mamta Sharma, who impress with their energy.

"Bichdann" is not a quintessential Ali Khan">Rahat Fateh Ali Khan song, and has given the singer a chance to experiment with his style by exposing various layers in his vocals. The tabla sounds really good with a tinge of techno beats thrown in here and there. The track is melodious and the lyrics by Sameer are extremely enjoyable. It also has a reprise version which is equally engaging, making it really hard to choose a winner amongst the two.

It is followed by another song by the singer - "Yeh jo halki halki khumariya". The lyrics by Irshad Kamil are an ace. Although it is a heavily Sufi track, the most interesting aspect are the guitar riffs in the background.

Ajay Devgn goes behind the mike himself with "Kabhie kabhie mere dil mein", talking about the importance of the Sikh community in our day-to-day lives. It's an interesting track that has some really good one-liners to keep the listeners hooked. It also has a trance version but it is not too appealing.

Overall, the album is woven around the theme of the film and manages to justify it well although the sound gets a bit monotonous at times.
