Aladin - Music Review

Cast :: Amitabh Bachchan, Sanjay Dutt, Ritesh Deshmukh, Juhi Chawla, Sameera Reddy, Jackie Fernandez, Jacqueline Fernandez.

Vishal and Shekhar had a very few success in Bollywood last year with movies like Tashan(2008), Bachna Ae Haseeno (2008) and especially Dostana (2008), are now back to prove themselves in the movie Aladin directed by Sujoy Ghosh, which has already created a direct impression just because of its breathtaking promos.

There is common factor in all movies of Sujoy Ghosh and that is – music of Vishal and Shekhar. There are lot of expectations on the movie Aladin.

The first song of the track, “Genie Rap” is a feel-good ‘ego-trip’ for Amitabh Bachchan who, as everyone knows by now, plays the Genie (while it’s strange that he is called Genius in the movie ) and has also given his vocals for this particular track. He is joined by Anushka Manchanda, who provides some electric backing vocals throughout the song, which is hip in its own way although when Bachchan starts singing, you start to feel a déjà vu, probably because his vocals sound the same whenever he sings. There will be millions of Amitabh Bachchan fans who love to hear him singing.

Tak Dhina Dhin”, the first reaction while listening this song is “Is this Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy track?”. Admittedly, patches of the Vishal-Shekhar trademark come into focus in bits and spurts, but overall, you get another annoying déjà vu with this song, which has Shankar Mahadevan and Shaan in a singing duet which is well done. The lyrics (by Vishal Dadlani & Anvita Dutt Guptan) are very average though. Yet another situational track which fails to impress from a purely hearing viewpoint.

Now this is a track which might at last find some support among the listeners. ”Ore Saawariya”, one wonders if it would have been more convenient to name the track “More Saiyyan” or “Sasur Ghar Jaana”, as the annoying chants by Sudesh Bhonsle and Amitabh Bachchan focus on these words far often! Shreya Ghoshal gives her all to pitch in a really well-rendered semi-classical performance.

You May Be” demonstrates that the duo can perform well and bring back some much needed integrity. This is the romantic song of the 70’s where soft rock always used to be fused with an Indian touch by the star that was Rahul Dev Burman. The Hinglish lyrics are nice and sweet and an improvement over the previous tracks. Vishal and Shekhar lend beautiful vocals to this song that can also boast of some really good arrangements and mixing. Though this song is not meant to last long in the charts, it will generate some fan following before stepping out.

Bachke O Bachke” , in which the beats, the arrangements, and the sound designing really give us yet another déjà vu. Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan, who are present in this track, have sung for the previous number as well although Shankar Mahadevan and Vishal Dadlani thankfully bring some change.

The last track of the album “Giri Giri” , with sung by Sanjay Dutt. Though he has sung well in the past for a number of successful songs, one wonders where he is heading with this track that sounds lame even without his vocals! But probably, like the Genie, the Ringmaster needs a song as well, so here it is.

Genie Rap Remix” and “Ore Saawariya Remix” by DJ Suketu and AKS are okay, but how one wishes the originals were better so that the poor DJs could have something to go at (to mix) in the first place. Alas they too have been let down by the duo.

Finally, the duo Vishal and Shekhar has delivered a very average soundtracks.
