Music Review

Phir Hera Pheri - Can be heard for a few days
<>document.write('By Aelina, ') By Aelina, IndiaGlitz  [Monday, May 22, 2006]

As a guest composer, Himesh Reshammiya came up with a superhit title song for Akshay Kumar in his last release 'Humko Deewana Kar Gaye'. It appears as if it was just a trailer as now he arrives as a full fledged composer for Akshay's upcoming film 'Phir Hera Pheri'. Would he, lyricist Sameer and remix maestro DJ Akbar Sami combine to come up with yet another super successful score for this Neeraj Vohra directed sequel of 'Hera Pheri'? Let's hear on the album to find it out!

1) Mujhko Yaad Sataye Teri (Original and remix) [Himesh Reshammiya]

The album begins on a good note with 'Mujhko Yaad Sataye Teri', a song that goes with the cool image of Akshay Kumar. Reshammiya gives both his composition and singing style an edge by making the number sound more urban and contemporary while changing the tone of his voice too. There is a certain squeaky feel to the entire number that goes well with the hip-hop rhythm of the song. Featuring Rimmi Sen as the center of attraction, this Reshammiya solo has Akshay gyrating to the beats in a cool dude manner. Rimmi too looks sensational by coming with a variety of pouts while bearing an uncanny resemblance to Bipasha, the other Bengali beauty in the film. As expected, DJ Akbar Sami version is further racy that never allows you to keep your feet from moving. Overall a positive beginning to the album.

2) Ae Meri Zohrajabeen (Original and remix) [Himesh Reshammiya]

One of the most awaited songs of the film; one keenly looks forward to the promotional music video of 'Ae Meri Zohrajabeen' that is touted to feature the entire starcast of the film. No, as the title may suggest, 'Ae Meri Zohrajabeen' is not the remix version of the yesteryear hit from 'Waqt'. Instead it is a fresh new song written by Sameer that is sung in a full throated manner by Reshammiya. A rocking number that sets the tempo rolling from the very first note, it is racy, zingy and typically Reshammiya. One can comfortably call the song to be belonging to Himesh Reshammiya school of composing'n'singing and DJ Akbar Sami school of remixing! A sure shot chartbuster number that should be highly appealing to all those who have loved Reshammiya songs during last one year.

3) Dil Nayyiyo Maane Re (Original and remix) [Himesh Reshammiya, Tulsi Kumar]

For the first time in the album, a female voice is heard in the form of Tulsi Kumar. The young girl has been primarily getting recognition with her duets with Reshammiya and she gets an opportunity to gain it further on with 'Dil Nayyiyo Maane Re' that belongs to an instant coffee variety. Reshammiya doesn't attempt to break any new grounds with either his composition style or singing and that in fact works very well with the listeners. Hear the song, enjoy it and get the mood livened up further on with Akbar Sami's remix version.

4) Phir Hera Pheri (Original and remix) [Sonu Nigam, Shaan and Rakesh Upadhyay]

Finally some other singer apart from Reshammiya gets a chance to sing a song! And this time the entire male force comes into action as Sonu Nigam, Shaan and Rakesh Upadhyay share credits for the title song 'Phir Hera Pheri'. A fun sitational number in which the trio of Raju, Shyam and Baburao cherish an Indian rupee more than a dollar, pound or a yen, it has been shot at foreign locations with bevy of beauties all around them. A fast paced number, it is the first song in the album that deviates from a style that Reshammiya has been so famous for!

5) Dil De Diya (Original and remix) [Kunal Ganjawala, Sunidhi Chauhan]

After 'Dil Na Diya' [Krrish], it's time to give your heart away with 'Dil De Diya'. A dance floor number where Bipasha sizzles with Akshay Kumar in tow, it is a 'masala' number that suits the on-screen temptress image of the lady. A fast moving number that is yet another song which is different from what Reshammiya composes today, 'Dil De Diya' has both Kunal Ganjawala and Sunidhi Chauhan letting their hair down and enjoying every bit of this eye-candy number. No wonder the Akbar Sami version builds up hear further on and creates much more excitement in the proceedings due to the spiced up musical arrangements. From 'Rockstar' [Humko Deewana Kar Gaye] to 'Di De Diya' [Phir Hera Pheri], the 'silsila' of foot tapping Akshay-Bipasha songs continues!

6) Pyaar Ki Chatni (Original and remix) [Sunidhi Chauhan]

The worst is left for the end as Sunidhi Chauhan sings perhaps one of the worst songs of her career in the form of 'Pyaar Ki Chatni'. Though the setting seems to be somewhat similar to Kashmira Shah item song [Chalka Chalka] in 'Aankhen', it is hardly a number that would excite anyone part from the front benchers. Reason? It is downright vulgar and you don't really have to read between the words to understand the meaning; it's all so very straight forward! A nautanki/bar number where Dia Mirza tries to hog some limelight in a guest appearance, 'Pyaar Ki Chatni' is Indian in look and feel but overall so very uncharacteristic of Reshammiya. Akbar Sami tries to do his bit to extend the song's reach but this situational hardly stands a chance to make any impression.

Those who have been accusing Reshammiya of repeating himself may have something to cheer about as the composer/singer changes his approach for at least half the album. The album is fine but listeners now have very high expectations from a Himesh Reshammiya score. Now one looks forward to the next keenly awaited album from him i.e. 'Chup Chup Ke'. Till then have some fun for at least a few days with 'Phir Hera Pheri'.

One can take the example of the very first Indian Idol- Abhijeet Sawant, whose 'rags to riches' story made big news as the viewers laughed and cried with him. He seems to have completely sunk into oblivion after the phase of the first season of Indian Idol. Apart from his two albums-Aapka Abhijeet and Yaarron, he has also sung for a couple of forgettable Bollywood songs- one by Himesh Reshammiya and the other by Sanjeev Darshan. Other than that, the singing idol has gone unnoticed. The only place he is seen lately is in a mouth freshener adfilm!
Some reports here and there state that Abhijeet is 'busy' doing live shows. But they seem to be reaching very limited and local audiences

Udita is slated to travel for shooting shortly. "I am going on a world tour with Himesh Reshammiya, in July. I think Dorinne will deliver by June end. Who will look after her during her pregnancy? Who will look after the pups?"

He added: "And the music video 'Jhoom' is a rage. This is my second chartbuster with Himesh Reshammiya after 'Jhalak dikhlaja' in 'Aksar'. Since Himesh is such a lucky mascot, I am sure his magic will work for us."
Dino Morea.

Priyadarshan and Himesh Reshammiya come back together with 'Chup Chup Ke' after their association in 'Kyon Ki'. Though the music in the Salman-Karrena starrer was good, it couldn't go an extra distance due to the film failing at the box office. Times have changed quickly with Reshammiya being the hottest selling composer/singer today, Priyadarshan basking in the glory of twin successes in the form of 'Garam Masala' and 'Maalamaal Weekly' while Shahid-Kareena finally getting a HIT in the shape of '36 China Town'. All this combined with the comic power of Paresh Rawal, Om Puri, Rajpal Yadav and Shakti Kapoor along with Sunil Shetty and Neha Dhupia makes CCK a hot product this summer. Sameer, who is practically writing for more than 50% of the films releasing these days, is the lyricist for CCK too! Reshammiya's favorite DJ Akbar Sami takes care of the remixing department.

If a film's composer is Himesh Reshammiya then it is must for an album to have a song sung by him. 'Shaadi Se Pehle' has been the only exception in last few months and everyone knows what happened to its music sales! There is a certain expectation that a music lover has from his films now and CCK doesn't disappoint as Reshammiya pairs up with his favorite co-singer Tulsi Kumar for 'Shabbe Firaq'. It's the melody of 'Aa Re Aa Re' that sets the tune for the song that has Reshammiya going all out while crooning the opening lines. A great fusion of Middle-East, Indian and Western music, 'Shabbe Firaq' has chartbuster written all over it and has already helped the album take a good start at the music stores. A rhythmic dance track that goes at a decent pace rather than rushing its way through, this well written number with fresh lyrics has been picturized innovatively by music video director Kookie V Gulati with the help of some imaginative sets. With DJ Akbar Sami coming to the scene, the proceedings were always meant to become further engrossing and the result is there for everyone to be seen. Pace picks up, scenario gets livelier and it's time to hit the dance floors. A small piece of information here – all those who have accused Reshammiya of singing with a nasal twang would have to find some another reason to put him down after hearing him singing on a different note altogether!

It's Himesh Reshammiya himself who croons the title of the song 'Dil Vich Lagya Ve' twice before handing over the singing reins to Sonu Nigam who sings the number in a full throated manner and lots of energy. Newcomer Akriti Kakkar, who has mostly sung remixes in the past (notably being 'Rangeela Re' that was shot on Deepal Shaw) joins Sonu Nigam and comes across as a pro who has innumerous playback numbers to her credits in the past. Kunal Ganjawala appears after a while and does a great job along with the two singers to make 'Dil Vich' a smashing dance number set to an Indian contemporary tune. A rhythmic number that has Shahid Kappor giving his all while dancing along, it is THE BEST song in the recent times from Reshammiya that had some other singer than the composer himself. There have been some songs in 'Banaras', 'Shaadi Se Pehle', '36 China Town' and 'Phir Hera Pheri' in recent times that were sung by a singer other than Reshammiya but none of these songs had a potential to be a HIT. Hearing 'Dil Vich', it's quite sure that this should be the one that would go an extra distance. And why not when you have Akbar Sami's remixed version to add on to the original to present the song in an altogether different 'avtar'?! While the proceedings were completely Indian in the original, Akbar Sami adds on a Western effect to it to enhance the song's reach to pubs, discs and lounges.

Before Reshammiya himself had started crooning, one of his favorite singers was K.K. The talented singer arrives on the scene again with 'Ghoomar' that has Sunidhi Chauhan pairing up with him. Based on Rajasthani/Gujrati folk music, the song is given a different touch altogether to make it fit into the Bollywood scheme of things. A rhythmic number that may not be the most unique tune that you may have heard in the past, it is still good enough to keep you engaged due to its rhythmic approach and some loud musical arrangements that suit with the racy fun feel of the song. 'Ghoomar Re' is one of those songs that mostly remain unaffected even if presented in a remix version. Overall the song may not have a chartbuster appeal but its filler capability helps the album to sail on.

The rhythm of 'RE' continues with 'Shabbe Firaq [Aa RE, Aa RE]', 'Dil Vich Lagya RE', 'Ghoomar RE' to 'Aaya RE'. A number with the kind of lyrics that only Sameer can write [Aaya Re Dil Tumpe Aaya Re Chaya Re Nasha Chaya Re], 'Aaya Re' is a kind of Reshammiya song that has brought him into limelight for last few years since he started composing for Salman Khan films. A song by Kunal Ganjawala, Sunidhi Chauhan and Arya that does well in both the versions, be it an original that has a distinct Reshammiya melody to the remix by Akbar Sami that changes its mood by moving at a rapid pace without giving you a breather at all, 'Aaya Re' is yet another good song in succession for 'Chup Chup Ke' that maintains a good standard throughout. After hearing the two versions, one feels that the essence of the song is more interesting in its original version and this is what one may be inclined to hear if looking for some good melody!

With singers like Vijay Yesudas and Shreya Ghoshal credited for a song, one expects the proceedings to mellow down a little and turn outright melodious. The beginning of 'Tumhi Se' promises just that and when Vijay Yesudas begins his crooning, you can't just help but admire the newcomer's singing prowess. Son of the great music maestro Yesudas, Vijay's voice does resemble his father's when it comes to depth but overall does well to manage an identity of its own. A soulful number that has peace written all over it, 'Tumhi Se' is a romantic number that has Shreya Ghoshal, one of the most suited voice today for songs of this genre, giving him good company. Reshammiya comes up with a tune that is so unlike his style, past or present, and should win the hearts of even his detractors. Kunal Ganjawala, who is now easily amongst the Top-5 singers in Bollywood today gets his share with an unplugged version of the same song and ensures that his effort doesn't go in vain. If there is any song that comes with a 'SURPRISE' tag associated with it, it is 'Tumhi Se'. The song may not be an instant coffee but is definitely a 'lambi race ka ghoda'!

The only song in the album that has only one version associated with it, 'Mausam Hai Bada Qatil', is a Sonu Nigam single and has its opening tune set to the 60s fashion. On hearing closely, one realizes that the rhythm has some resemblance to Reshammiya's own 'Aa Meri Life Bana De' [Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaaye] but he arranges the music in such a manner that it comes across as a number that could have made none other than a Rajendra Kumar or a Shammi Kapoor sing it along. From someone like Sonu Nigam, the least that you expect is a good rendition and he (obviously) does well here too! A good song to end the album!

After '36 China Town', Himesh Reshammiya can easily assure himself yet another popular soundtrack that is worthy of entering the Top-5 charts in a couple of weeks to come. NOW is the time to up the tempo of the music promotion and bombard the music channels with all the songs for getting the album its due.
