Bodyguard songs lack punch

Bodyguard - Music Review
His Dhinka Chika is still hot on the charts and the radio stations continue to pipe in Character Dheela in loop. So one expects the songs of another Salman Khan starrer to capture people’s fancy. Obviously, if the tracks are really good then there’s no stopping them.

That’s right. Bodyguard is Salman’s next release, and till now we were fed only with the song I Love You, which is created by Pritam, and the rest of the tracks (with Himesh Reshammiya in charge) too try to pack in that punch that masses gleefully lap up, an example in case being Desi Beats. Himesh is the main composer of the album and is back with Salman after a hiatus. So, does the Bodyguard album have what it takes to bust the charts?

It will be revealed to you shortly. The first offering is the title track Bodyguard, which can easily remind you of Dhinka Chika. We don’t want to say the word, but it sounds pathetic in all aspects, right from its tune, to music, to beats, because it blatantly tries to be a hit like Dhinka Chika and turns out to be a mere bland version of it. It’s not always profitable to cash the same cheque over and again.

The remix version of the song starts with Salman’s punchy dialogues, and amazingly it sounds a little better than the original. But isn’t that impressive.

Music composer Pritam welcomes you with soft number I Love You. And it’s such a relief to hear the number after the eardrum splitting title track. Ash King and Clinton Cerejo wield the microphones to sing this romantic ballad which soothes you instantly with its cheerful melody and romantic tone.

Next is the special promotional song which was shot in the end. It seems Salman wanted to have a blast, and thus Desi Beats happened. A perfect song for Sallu bhai’s fans with a nice rhythm and groovy beats. Starting off like a disco track, the song changes its mood and turns into a full-on Punjabi pop number. Mika delivers like dynamite in an inferno, while Amrita Kak chips in between with her sensuous voice.

Desi Beats also has a hip-hop remix and the fun rallies forth in the album. Then there is a passionate track Teri Meri Prem Kahani in the voice of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Shreya Ghosal. We wonder what kept composer Himesh Reshammiya from singing this song. Anyway this is the only song worth mentioning in the album. It touches you with its simple rendition, lesser use of heavy instrumentation, and loads of emotion infused in its tune. The song clicks and is likeable.

The rest of the album is laden with remixes and unplugged versions of the four originals. There is nothing mindblowing about the compilation. It’s just a matter of fact that Bodyguard is a Salman film; otherwise there wouldn’t have been enough buzz surrounding the songs.

Gone are the days when we used to hear melodious tracks in a Salman Khan film. After his films like Wanted, Dabangg and Ready, the music of a Salman film sounds similar. What a disappointment! With Salman and Kareena Kapoor it could have been way better.
