Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif’s upcoming film Bang Bang is touted as one of the biggest films of this year. The action thriller has even managed to create great buzz courtesy its dhamakedaar trailer which was released not too long ago. But is the music of Siddharth Anand’s big budget directorial venture any good? Well, it’s the first that music composer duo Vishal-Shekhar have worked on Hrithik’s film. So let’s check out what kind of music these two have come up with for the honey-eyed actor’s film Bang Bang…
Tu Meri: This upbeat dance number has been sung by Vishal Dadlani and we must admit the talented singer has indeed done a fine job. Usually, we hear this composer-singer crooning songs which are high pitched but this one is a bit different. It’s high on energy, peppy and does have a rock feel to it thanks to the usage of bass. Also, I liked the way tempo of the song kept changing. Guess that made Tu Meri more edgier. Overall, this track is a good hear. But the video is more entertaining and engaging courtesy Jr Roshan’s sassy moves.
Meherbaan: This romantic number starts off with Guitar in the mainstay and its an absolute treat to the ears. Then you get hear the lyrics which aren’t bad as well. Meherbaan is mainly sung by Ash King and Shilpa Rao. And both of them have sung their parts well. But I totally loved the way ‘Meherbaan hua hua..’ has been sung in chorus. Its just beautiful. However, the music did sound a bit familiar. But if you like listening to lovey-dovey numbers then I am pretty sure this romantic rendition won’t disappoint you. There is a reprise version as well which is crooned by Shekhar and its a MUST HEAR. Trust us!
Uff: Sung by Harsdeep Kaur and Benny Dayal, this track is quite thanda compared to the other songs in the album. Yes, the music is upbeat and the lyrics are quirky but it just doesn’t pack a punch. You may not even hear the song till the very end coz it gets boring barely after few seconds. Guess it would be better if you skip this one!
Bang Bang: The title track of Hrithik-Katrina starrer reminded me of ’80s disco music. Sung by Benny Dayal and Neeti Mohan, Bang Bang has a very retro feel to it and that works in its favour to an extent. But it could have been more thumping since it’s all about bang bang. But it’s still worth hearing once if not twice or thrice. And if you’re watching the video as well then maybe you may end up hearing the song a lot more wethinks.
Verdict: Bang Bang is one of the most highly anticipated film of this year and wethinks composer duo Vishal-Shekhar have come up with a pulsating album which will appeal to masses.
Our pick: Meherbaan reprise version and Tu Meri…in the same order!
