Music Review: 'Bol Bachchan' music fails to hold interest
Bol Bachchan music review; Rating- **1/2, Music Director: Himesh Reshammiya, Ajay-Atul; Lyricist: Farhad-Sajid, Shabbir Ahmed, Swanand Kirkire, Sameer Anjaan; Singers: Amitabh Bachchan, Abhishek Bachchan, Ajay Devgn, Himesh Reshammiya, Mamta Sharma, Vineet Singh, Sukhwinder Singh, Shreya Ghoshal, Mohit Chauhan

Four songs and their remixes -- that pretty much describes the soundtrack of Bol Bachchan. However, with four lyricists at their disposal, one expected a much better performance by the veteran Himesh Reshammiya and the duo of Ajay-Atul, who have earned much fame in Marathi music with their compositions.

The album starts on a good note with the voice of Amitabh Bachchan, who has used his baritone in the title track "Bol Bachchan". He is joined by son Abhishek and actor Ajay along with Himesh Reshammiya, Mamta Sharma and Vineet Singh.

The lyrics, penned by Farhad-Sajid are funny and remind the listeners of Amitabh's classic number "My name is Anthony Gonsalves". The composition is also good and this one is surely the catch of the soundtrack. It also has a remix version, replete with powerful beats. But the original works better.

Reshammiya gets you into the groove with "Chalao na naino se baan", reminiscent of the yesteryear hit "Bholi surat dil ke khote". The song has a very desi feel with playful lyrics by Shabbir Ahmed.

However, despite the support of Shreya Ghoshal's melodious vocals, the song does not leave a huge impact and is good for a one-time hear. Its remix version fares better musically with the inclusion of dhol and drum beats.

The third track "Nach le nach le" has a tango feel and kicks off with the beautiful sound of the saxophone. The musical duo of Ajay-Atul bring to the table different musical styles like dandiya and groovy Punjabi beats, providing a festive feel by mashing the music elements quite well.

The lyrics by Swanand Kirkire are voiced by Sukhwinder Singh, who is quite appealing. He is joined by Ghoshal and together they have done a fairly good job. Nothing too great about the remixed version, and its inclusion is hard to justify. It's definitely a passe.

With the last track, one was hoping for a good ending with Mohit Chauhan crooning a romantic number. However, "Jab se dekhi hai" is a very average track with a very ordinary composition.

Chauhan's beautiful voice has been totally wasted and the song fails to garner a positive response from the listener. What's more tragic is it's remix, which although has good electric beats but they are not at all in sync with the vocals.

The soundtrack thus fails to impress. The sole saving grace is the title track. There will be few takers for this album and it also jeopardises the musical genius Himesh Reshammiya, who needs to think about what went wrong here.
