Bring the house down - The Billu Barber Music Review

By Usha Lakra
Rating: 3/5

Be ready to party and groove as this album promises mast-mast tracks. 'Billu Barber' is a Bollywood adaptation of Malayalam Film 'Kadha Parayumbol'. Since Shahrukh Khan happens to be the producer of the Hindi film, one can expect a lavishly crafted musical score by Pritam. In that sense 'Billu Barber' lives up to expectations.

The album consists of 15 tracks with different remix versions that act as fillers. And besides Gulzar three other lyricists, Ashish Pandit, Mayur Puri and the talented Sayeed Quadri have used their pens.

This song is already doing rounds on the channels and what a song it is in terms of picturisation where you can see Kareena dancing with SRK. The song is rendered well by Sukhwinder and Sunidhi Chauhan with the kind of energy required for a peppy track. High on groove metre, this number has what it takes to rock the music charts.

There are two remix versions of the song - one is Electro House and another is Kilogram's Balkan Mix. Electro House is a good remix with okay arrangements and synchronization whereas Balkan mix has singers KK and Akriti Kakkar, who, with their distinguished styles, have made the song very groovy.

You get me Rockin and Reeling
A typical Neeraj Sridhar number, this song sounds like the twin of 'Hawa mein udta jaye', but lyrics by Sayeed Quadri are subtle and evocative. The song, soft and mellow, bears the Pritam stamp all over it.

This one, too, has two remixes - one is Video Edit where Neeraj teams up with Dominic, who crooned the song 'Yeh Tumhari Batein' from 'Rock On', and another is a simple Remix by DJ Suketu. Both the tracks are again an okay version of the original, a bit faster though to get your feet tapping.

Ae Aa O
Another party number with heavy beats and soft rock, this song has some inspiring lyrics penned by ghost lyricist Neeraj Sridhar. This song was definitely meant for KK and he has sung it with required punch and enthusiasm, supported well by Rana Mazumdar and Suraj.

The remix is long and sounds better than the original one.

Khudaiya Khair
This song is Hindi version of hinglish 'You Get Me Rockin' sung by new singer Soham Chakraborty, Akriti Kakkar and Monali Thakur. With a mellifluous melody and Gulzar's meaningful words, the song is sweet and soothing. One thing notable about Pritam - besides his subtle plagiarism of other's tunes - is that he gives chance to budding talents. In this song Monali and Soham are well used. This song is indeed one of the best in the album.

There is Khudaiya Khair (Reprise) by Abhijeet, who has sung some of the best songs for Shahrukh and his voice in this melodious song makes you to hear this song again and again.

Love Mera Hit Hit
This song is another hit number which sounds spicy and zippy. A terrific disc number, it has been picturized on Deepika Padukone making sizzling moves with Shahrukh. Lyrics by Ashish Pandit are simply fit-fit for this kind of song and the saccharine induced voice of Tulsi Kumar balances this song sung in high note by Neeraj Sridhar.

The House Mix version is fast paced and will sweep you with its mood in one go, armed with its loaded beats and high energy level. And if that doesn't suffice, then there is another version named Zero (Db Mix) for you. All the three tracks don't have much difference besides slightly different musical arrangements. Well the song is Hit- Hit.

Jaon Kahan
Vocalized by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, this number is a sufi song with thought-provoking lyrics by Sayeed Quadri. With this song the album takes a somber turn. There are shades of 'Jag Suna Suna' from 'Om Shanti Om' in this song. Pritam has done a fine job and tries to be experimental, may be that's why A R Rahman praised him.

Billoo Bhayankar
Now here is one rustic song in the name of the film's titular protagonist played by Irrfan Khan. An introductory song of the barber in the film, the lyrics are as funny as the way it is sung by Raghuvir Yadav and supported well by fellow singers like Ajay Jhingaran and Kalpana.

Well, here is the album for party hoppers. You can play the entire album and dance till you drop as the fifteen songs list seems like an unending jamboree. The album rocks with really good numbers and it comes as a surprise as the subject of 'Billu Barber' is such that you don't expect innumerable songs, foot savvy ones at that. But thanks to SRK who has done three sizzling item songs with stunning beauties Kareena, Deepika and Priyanka. Pritam is very much into groove for this album and has come up with remarkable tracks.

In a nutshell, 'Billu Barber' rocks.
