'Department' - lively, powerful soundtrack

Department music review; Music Directors: Dharam-Sandeep, Vikram Nagi, Bappa Lahiri; Lyricists: Vaayu, Shabbir Ahmed, Sandip Singh; Singers: Paroma, Ravi, Sandeep Patil, Ritu Pathak, Mika, Sudesh Bhosale, Sanjay Dutt, Farhad Bhiwandiwalla; Rating: ***

Five songs, four musicians and three lyricists have come together to create the soundtrack of Department, RGV's much-awaited thriller that boasts of powerful music. The music scores big in the dance department with its groovy numbers that makes you sway.

First up on the playlist is "Dan, dan cheeni shoot mix", a re-mixed Hindi version of the Tamil song "Aasai Nooru', crooned by Paroma, Ravi and Sandeep Patil. It sets the ball rolling for the album. Composed by Dharam-Sandeep and penned by Vayu, the track is an out-and-out masala number song with whistle sounds and an amazing chorus.

The highlight, however, is Indian-German Nathalia Kaur, the Brazilian girl of Indian descent who has stolen hearts with her raunchy moves and made this song an instant chartbuster. Move over Munni and Sheila because Cheeni is here to take your place and stay with 'desi jalwa and desi style'.

"Kammo", composed by Bappi Lahiri's son Bappa Lahiri, is the next song. If Mika's Punjabi touch makes it a must hear, the show stealer is Sudesh Bhosle who comes as a welcome surprise in the song. The composer lives up to his father's image to an extent with the song.

Next is the theme song of "Department" titled "Ek Do Teen Chaar" which is by far one of the finest experimental tracks Bollywood has produced in recent times. It takes off as a grunge rock number with powerful beats and drums but midway completely moulds itself and you are greeted with heavy dubstep that just bowls you over. Sandeep backs the music wiht his vocal and Kudos to the composer duo Dharam-Sandeep for creating the amazing track. It is simply kickass.

"Bad Boys" has good electronic beats and would have been a catchy number if not for the dry lyrics and under-utilization Ritu Pathak's vocals. Her youthful tone could have carried the whole song on its shoulder, but it is totally wasted. Earl's vocal is the sole satisfactory element in the track, which is otherwise a disappointment.

Last but not the least is "Mumbai Police", a rap number that has our own Sanju Baba with his tapori style saying the dialogues and Farhad Bhiwandiwala backing it up with his voice. Bappa does a good job again with the composition and Shabbir Ahmed's lyrics do the trick.

The final verdict is that "Department" is not for the faint-hearted who expect light romantic songs. The album is full of vigour, but somehow it fails to satiate your musical appetite and leaves you craving for more. Still likeable!
