'Rowdy Rathore' soundtrack disenchanting

Rowdy Rathore music review; Music Director: Sajid-Wajid; Lyricist: Sameer Anjaan; Singers: Wajid, Shreya Goshal, Mika Singh, Mamta Sharma, Sarosh Sami, Kumar Sanu, Javed Ali, Akshay Kumar; Rating: ***

From the storehouse of upbeat music, Sajid-Wajid, comes another album in the form of Rowdy Rathore. Having doled out chartbusters for films such as Dabangg and Housefull 2, one would expect the musical duo to deliver yet another hit.

But though they have a lot to offer through the "Rowdy Rathore" soundtrack, it falls short of tall expectations.

The album kicks off with "Chinta ta ta", crooned by the man with the Midas touch, Mika Singh, who has been giving hits after hits. The catchy phrase just lingers onto your mind even though you may not be hooked on to it after hearing it for the first time.

The track is not a runaway hit and it takes time to grow on you.

Next up is "Chammak Challo Chel Chabel", which marks the comeback of Kumar Sanu. With over 17,000 songs to his credit, Sanu has sung this duet with Shreya Goshal and their melodious blend, surprisingly takes you back to the romance of 1990s. It is an absolute delight to hear Sanu, who has returned to his forte of romantic numbers after six years.

Since the film is christened "Rowdy" Rathore, it would be unfair to not have a fitting song that justifies the title. "Aa re Pritam Pyaare" does that and it is said to be the 'rowdiest song of the year'. Custom-made for the voice of Mamta Sharma, your frown at the lyrics quickly metamorphoses into some foot-tapping.

Another song reminiscent of the past is "Tera ishq bada teekha". The number also takes you back to the 1990s. A duet by Javed Ali and Shreya Goshal, the song's male vocals eerily remind one of Sonu Nigam. It is just the perfect song for some nostalgia!

Next up on the playlist is "Dhadang dhang dhang", sung by Wajid and Shreya Goshal. The beginning of this song is inadvertently similar to the beats of the hit song "Aaila Re Aaila Re", filmed on Sanjay Dutt and Shilpa Shetty in the film "Jung". "Dhadang..." is a conversational song, but doesn't elicit appreciation. The composition is quite average and lyrics are disappointingly mediocre. A big thumbs down for this one.

It is followed by a lullaby that comes in the form of "Chandaniya" (Lori Lori) sung by Shreya Goshal. It is the lone soothing number in this over-the-top album. However, the strums of this song have close resemblance to A.R.Rahman's music in "Roja". An absolute delight to hear.

Last but not the least is the title track "Rowdy Mix", which opens with Akshay Kumar creating a statement with "Jo main bolta hun woh main karta hun, jo main nahin bolta woh main definitely karta hun". Sarosh Sami is good with the backing vocals but what makes you groove are the beats, which couple well with the rowdy style.

By and large, the album, despite the good songs, leaves a sense of discontentment. Having produced hit albums in the past, Sajid-Wajid definitely could have churned out something better.
