‘Dulha Mil Gaya’ music typical, lacks freshness

December 24, 2009

Film: “Dulha Mil Gaya”; Music Director: Lalit Pandit; Lyricists: Mudassar Aziz and Kumaar; Singers: Daler Mehndi, Adnan Sami, Anushka Manchanda, Sonu Niigaam, Sunanda, Shreya Ghoshal, Amit Kumar, Monali, Neeraj Shridhar and Tulsi Kumar; Rating:**

After composing chartbusters as the duo Jatin-Lalit in films like “Kabhi Khushi Kabhie Gham”, “Kuch Kuch Hota Hai” and “Dilwale Dulhaniya Le Jayenge” among others, Lalit Pandit goes solo with the music of “Dulha Mil Gaya”. However, the composer lacks the punch, melody and impact that his earlier films had.

The album comprises of eight originals and three remixes.

The soundtrack begins with “Akela Dil Online” crooned by Adnan Sami with ample support from Anushka Manchanda. The song with the psychedelic beats sounds monotonous and falls in the predictable loop. It does not generate any interest.

The song also has a remix version, which might find place at DJ consoles.

Next in line is the title track “Dulha mil gaya” sung by Daler Mehndi. It is currently doing the rounds of television channels and is one of the better songs of the album. The Bhangra-based song is catchy and doesn’t lose its tempo.

The remix version adds an edge to the original.

Then there is “Aaja aaja mera ranjhna” with newcomer Sunanda behind the mike and later joined by Anushka Manchanda. It is very typical and reminds of tracks of the early 90s owing to its orchestration and vocals. In today’s time, it doesn’t appeal at all.

Up next is “Magar meri jaan” with Anushka. It is a fast-paced, foot-tapping number. However it lacks punch and doesn’t offer anything fresh and out-of-the-box. Strictly an average number.

Then we have “Tu jo jaan le”, a soft love ballad with touches of rock. It is sung by Sonu Niigaam and picks up tempo after a few minutes into the song. A nice track that will be liked.

“Rang diya dil” is a Shreya Ghoshal song. It is a slow-paced romantic outing and Ghoshal’s honey-tucked voice makes it pleasing. It is a melodious track and strikes a chord with the listener.

Next is “Dilrubaon ke jalwe’, an amalgamation of Indian qawaali and western hip hop. It is crooned by Amit Kumar and Monali Thakur and does have the potential to be a hit. The shifts from western to Indian and back to western music is interesting. The song also has a remixed version that adds zing.

Finally we have “Shiri farhad” in Neeraj Sridhar and Tulsi Kumar’s voice. This one too boasts of psychedelic beats with Hindi and English lyrics. The song is very ordinary and has a heard-before feeling. Same beats and not many alterations in the lyrics makes it a routine affair.

On the whole Lalit Pandit disappoints big time. There is nothing worth noticing in most songs. The tunes and styles are ordinary and lack freshness and punch.
