Perhaps one of, if not the most awaited movie in the second half of the year 2013; coming from the mega blockbuster series: Dhoom 3
Staring Aamir Khan
, Abhishek Bachchan
, Uday Chopra
, and Katrina Kaif
vital roles, this Yash Raj productions' music has once again been
directed in the limelight of Pritam Chakraborty
and lyrics by
phenomenal Sameer. The album consists of 5 original tracks and 3 mash up
editions of the title track. BollyCurry is here with a review to see
whether Pritam's third installment in this series has managed to write
history or not.
The first track to release is the magical title track
"Dhoom Machale Dhoom" which has always been a part of all the Dhoom
ventures. In the vocals of Aditi Singh Sharma, this track managed to
create waves as soon as it released; it's impressive lyrics and the
party-like beats stole the heart of many. One definitely cannot miss out
on this addictive party tune which features Katrina Kaif
in a very sexy
attire, and has the perfect potential of being a massive hit across
individuals and night clubs in the long run.
The title track "Dhoom Machale Dhoom" is a dedication from Aamir Khan
to Sachin Tendulkar
, who during the release of this song was playing
his final and 200th cricket test at Wankhede Stadium.
up is "Malang" in the melodious voices of Shilpa Rao
Mahadevan. The track begins with a classical feel of Arabian music, it
gives high hopes of some good entertainment and syncs well with the
lyrics. Initially one seems to like the song, however with time the
smoothness seems to fade away. It seems like the song is being carried
away from it's original start, and misses to hit the spot because it
does not have anything special apart from the usual beats. A
commendable performance by Shilpa Rao
, her sensual voice does not seize
to please. Overall, a song which can be heard time to time, but not once
which can be considered in the hit list.
delivered by Sunidhi Chauhan
, it gives an Arabian feel in accordance to
the tunes and perfectly suits Katrina Kaif
's avatar. However, the song
does not give the feel of excitement. Once does not go gaga over it.
Although Chauhan's vocals are a pleasure to hear, the track itself does
not portray anything above average. The music and singer are good on
their own, but they fail as a combo.
"Tu Hi Junoon" comes
with Mohit Chauhan
; the upbeat music and fast paced track does leave a
mark, but somewhere it fails to deliver the extensive bit, and only
manages to give a general feel to it. It is not a fail owing to Mohit's
fabulous talent of giving his personal touch, but it's not a hit either.
Once again, another average track in the list.
Last one in
line is "Bande Hain Hum Uske" which is not a romantic or dance beat, but
rather a track which seeks to encourage and motivation. Perfectly well
set in the voices of Shivam Mahadevan and Anish Sharma, this track does
exceptionally well. It is not the type to be heard daily, but its
occasional use is it's uniqueness. A treat to the ears in a slow smooth
The official album takes a stop right here,
but the title track "Dhoom Machale Dhoom" has been recreated in three
mash up editions, two of them being instrumental versions: one by master
Pritam himself, and the other by new talent Jackie Williams. Both do
exceptionally fine with the potential to be liked by party lovers;
however, the Arabic version to the title track in the voice of the
Lebanese beauty Naya, is the one which takes the lead above all. Her
voice fully blends in the beat, and the package makes it worth
The music album of Dhoom 3 does not give out
anything extraordinary but still manages to rock the charts and create a
good impression overall. After Krishh 3's music was declared an
average, expectations from Dhoom 3 increased. However, it seems like
despite huge sums of money invested, the music itself is not any new
innovation, but the follows the same trend of the industry. We at
BollyCurry can only hope that the album syncs with the Dhoom theme and
manages to get higher standards after the release of the movie.
