Once Upon A Time in Mumbaai - Music Review
The movie is a throwback to the 70s; the feel, look, costumes and the setting is of a bygone era, including the music. So, what is contemporary in the film Once Upon A Time In Mumbai that can excite the today’s generation? It’s music! Don’t be puzzled.

Well, many don’t know that the song Pee Loon which has caught up with the music lovers so fast and is frequently played on the FM channels is from the film ‘Once Upon A Time In Mumbai’. Music director Pritam is at the helm of affairs, and the man is no less than a music wizard who has again proved his mettle with this Ekta Kapoor and Milan Luthria film.

Let’s do Pee Loon with Mohit Chauhan first. Yet again, the singer weaves romance in his soothing voice. Since the song warms the cockles of your heart, we will ignore its similarity with a popular song from the film Jab We Met. The Remix version of the song has a perky spirit and is in a fast mode.

Tum Jo Aye is a passionate retro song in the voice of Tulsi Kumar and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. It can be your second favourite after Pee Loon. The mood of romance gets further cemented with the track I Am In Love, first sung by Karthik, who sounds like KK. Strangely, KK gets to croon another I Am In Love track. The Remix of this track wasn’t required, but the song will find its place in disc consoles.

If you think that modern composers simply distort old melodies, hear Parda. The number is mainly based on the song Duniya Mein Logon Ko and the popular cabaret number Monica, My Darling, but soon you will realize what wonder Pritam has worked in the song, a must hear for all. Parda is not just a rip of the oldies but a tribute to these numbers. And kudos to singer Rana Mazumdar who successfully belts out the voice of R.D Burman and Sunidhi Chauhan excels in these kinds of songs. Simply, awesome!

Mika gets the fun track Babu Rao and sauces up the album. Brownie points to the song for its lyrics. Amitabh Bhattrachaya has written it with a mischievous undertone that’s bold and bindaas.

Talking about the entire album, it’s the best to come out of Bollywood in recent times, and by the time the movie releases, the songs would have gained momentum. The album is for the masses and they are loving every ‘beat’ of it.

You would love to listen to - Pee Loon, Parda, I Am In Love.
