Miss India Marti Mujhpe: The punch of frolicking youthful desires take another eventful journey through humorously delivered lyrical works and enthused vocal renditions in joyfully punched soundtrack "Miss India Marti Mujhpe". Amit Kumar makes welcome entry after "Dil Mein Baje Guitar" ('Apna Sapna Money Money') in his peculiar vociferous mode. His vocals are verbally challenged and mixed with Adnan Sami's zealous rendition. Sameer sheds his poetic finesse and delivers topsy-turvy and jumbled hilarious verses that make this entertaining. It will be thrilling to view all such roguishly playful happening on silver screen with ably crafted choreographic skills.
Chandni Raat Hai Saiyaan (3 Versions) : Asha Bhonsle's mischievously voguish vocals proved remarkable in Sami's composed "Lucky Lips" ('Lucky-No Time for Love') and their combination excels again in pop-qawaali soundtrack "Chandni Raat Hai Saiyaan". The song has been specially composed to allure mass listeners as it has typical qawaali flavors that worked magic in tracks like "Kajra Re" ('Bunty Aur Babli'), "Namak" and "Beedi" ('Omkara'). Amit Kumar plays a pivotal role again and his teasingly rendered vocals gel with Asha's free-flowing voice. Sami has preferred traditional classical instrumental works that collage well with electronic sounds and keyboard fillers in making it a mass friendly number. Sameer's lyrics have the tangible lyrical flow that should cater well to its target listeners but still the spark of Gulzar's peppery work in "Kajra Re" is missing. It can be termed as above average entertaining massy soundtrack that should be working encouragingly for film and album prospects.
"Chandni Raat Hai Saiyaan (remix)" is chirpy and spicy club remix work by DJ Sandeep Shirodkar and impresses because of its added resonating and echoing effects to the original soundtrack. Asha Bhonsle and Amit Kumar's voices are mixed with the spicy tinge of "Aa-ee-aa-oo" and loads of disco beat fillers that should work optimistically in pubs and discos.
"Chandni Raat Hai Saiyaan (instrumental)" is traditional "jugalbandi" of classical instruments in delivering the lyrical attributes of the original soundtrack through effective flute rendition by Raghav Sachar with able support of stringed instruments. This version should be well utilized in initial or end titles or can work in light moments. All three versions have a massy resilience in its witty and spicy musical flow and should be positive attribute in the film's success. It's really pity that this number hasn't been used aggressively in full strength to create buzz for the promotion of the film. All Asha Bhonsle's fans will have something substantial to cheer for after hearing this pop-qawaali soundtrack.
Chal Nache Shor Machaye (2 Versions): Adnan Sami has another big surprise in "Chal Nache Shor Machaye", a fun filled second title track symbolizing the youthful appeal of the film. Like "Dekho Dekho Ye Dhamaal", it's conceived as rollicking rock concert number where songsters share their emotions in vociferous mode with large gatherings. Sami tries to match with the ethics of stylized hard rock concerts but overall it's a typical Bollywood's fun loving boys' "dhamaal" number that should attract teenagers. Adnan Sami teams up again with vivacious Shaan in delivering loads of hip-shaking madness through aggressively punched percussive orchestration and the undying fervor is maintained till the last beat.
"Chal Nache Shor Machaye (instrumental)" is a mixed bag of jazz and rock music where Naveen's impressive saxophone notes gel well with the boisterously played orchestration in the backdrop. It's another instrumental work that can well be utilized in initial or end titles and positively will be proving substantial grounding for young musicians like Naveen in the marquee.
Inder Kumar's 'Dhamaal' is an out and out madcap musical album that caters to its targeted young urban listeners with moderate success. The album runs short in terms of original soundtracks but still every number emotes the frolicking thrust through its techno-skilled musical renditions. After the success of 'Lucky-No time for Love', Adnan Sami props up with situational youthful album that should work positively in the spirit of the film but may not be as successful as his previous albums. The album suffers heavily from low promotion. However, its promising face value and high production values might work substantially for its commercial prospects.
