Heyy Babyy Music Review
Sajid Khan’s debut film’s promos are out and going by the looks, the movie seems to be fun, youthful and full of energy like that of his sister Farha Khan’s directorial debut “Main Hoon Na”. And the music is not far behind as Khan has roped in Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy for the soundtrack.
“Dholna” has the dhol written all over it what with the lyrics and the characteristic percussion instrument playing throughout the number.
A typical Bollywood track set against a festive background that used to be belted out in the late 1990s, the song has Sonu Nigam pairing up with Shreya Ghoshal. The track has nothing going for it apart from the ‘nice-to-listen-to’ voices of the lead singers.
The best song, no doubt, is the title track, “Heyy Babyy”. Already doing the rounds of the small screen, it is primarily known for its video, shot with 21 actresses along with the three leading actors. The track’s got a very fresh, peppy and energetic appeal to it. A nice club number, the song has been rendered by an assortment of singers.
“Jaane bhi de” too has hit televisions across the country. Rendered by Shankar and Loy, it has beats similar to the title track but has been composed in a different way to make it a feel-good number.
Shankar’s singing and his music make a great combo in this track that reminds one of “Woh ladki hai kahaan” from “Dil Chahta Hai”. His soft, peppy and easy-going voice and music would appeal to lots and make for a good number to be used for get-togethers.
An average number comes next in the form of “Mast kalandar”. An all-in-all Sufi track, Rehan Khan and Salim Shehzada pair up with Shankar and Sajid Khan and render this number that mixes the Sufi music with the kind of beats that one gets to hear in the entire album. An okay number!
Sameer’s lyrics stand out in “Meri duniya tu hi re”, which features the leading actors. The singers are Shankar, Shaan and Sonu Nigam. Making a nice trio, the three have given the track the appropriate rhythm and force and the song ends up being a romantic one.
‘Feel-good’ music seems to be the punch line of the album.
