Golmal Returns Music Review
Music Album: ‘Golmaal Returns’; Music Director: Pritam Chakraborty; Singers: Neeraj Sridhar, Anushka Manchanda, Benny Dayal, Indie, Monali, Suzanne D’Mello aka Suzie Q, Suhail Kaull, Akruti Kakkar, Anvesha Dutta, Earl; Rating: ***
After hits like “Race”, “Kismat Konnection” and “Singh is Kinng”, Pritam Chakraborty offers yet another hit album with “Golmaal Returns”. It has nine tracks including five remixes and most of them are pretty catchy.
“Tha kar ke“, which has been making news for its extravagant cost, is basically a promotional number. Singer Neeraj Sridhar is joined by Akriti, Anvesha, Indie and Earl and they add in a lot of punch to their singing. Sameer’s lyrics are okay.
Suzie Q, who sang “Jee karda” in “Singh is Kinng”, is back in “Meow” along with Monali. As far as composition goes, the track isn’t very impressive. The lyrics are good, but the repeated use of the word ‘Meow’ irritates. This Hinglish track is basically an attempt at being a little naughty and successfully does so.
“Vacancy” is much better than the previous track. It can be called the title track because of the repeated use of the word ‘Golmaal’. Like the title track of the original “Golmaal”, this one too has got the same base. Rendered by Benny, Neeraj Sridhar, Suhail and Suzie Q, the number is a racy one. It is sure to be hummed by many, just like the original “Golmaal” was.
Anushka Manchanda tracks always manage to woo listeners and “Tu saala” is no exception. A solo rendition, Anushka adds a certain zing to the tune.
All in all, “Golmaal Returns” is not really an out-and-out chartbuster, but it is an enjoyable album and “Vacancy” can be flaunted as the star attraction.
