CHALO DILLI

''Saddi Dilli' (Our Delhi) is fast becoming the 'hot-spot' for Bollywood's dream merchants. Whether it was entertaining BAND BAAJA BAARAT or critically acclaimed NO ONE KILLED JESSICA, Delhi has garnered major spotlight in present set of multiplex entertainers. CHALO DILLI follows this geographical route too and promises to entertain as frothy comical riot with the likes of Lara Dutta and prankster Vinay Pathak in the main leads. 

CHALO DILLI also marks the debut of Lara Dutta as producer and also makes its entry as another honest attempt in 'road movie' genre. Zero expectations, zilch promotions and no buzz for this comical caper, have made things almost impossible for its musical success. Despite its low profile and mediocre face -value, the album has array of music composers to entertain in the form of Gourov Dasgupta, Anand Raj Anand, Sachin Gupta, Rohit Kulkarni and Roshan Balu. Can we expect CHALO DILLI to be finding its way to road of success? Big task but still optimistic for a joyful ride...let's plug 'play' to find the musical facts....! 

Raja Hassan, a reality musical show winner who had solitary hit 'Maari Teetri' (DE TAALI) to his credits, makes vocal prominence in his throaty rendition to deliver out bouncy title track 'Chalo Dilli'. Gourav Dasgupta's composition is electronically profound that emphasizes more on echoing impacts, racy fillers rather than delivering out a spunky signature tuneful appeal. Raja Hassan's folksy vocal punch is optimally pitched in this playful set of arrangements with extra buzz of UK bhagra-beat that infuses pop element in this track. There are no such great shakes to mention but this funky number promises to be a potential background score for 'creating word-of-publicity' for the flick. 

DUM MARO DUM

Goa beaches, hippie culture, drug-mafias, mysteries...all collage together for a real on-screen enthralling action-packed "dum" (punch) in DUM MAARO DUM! After the surprise though limited success of con-man thriller BLUFFMASTER (2005), Rohan Sippy pitches out another riveting hi-octane suspenseful flick with his favorite Abhishek Bachchan as the lead player. Pritam leads this musical bandwagon along with Jaideep Sahni's sweet "n" salty lyrics and together they promises truckloads of "dum" in this offerings. 

BLUFFMASTER was hugely experimental with international talents and genres colliding together to deliver out their best with Junior B making his phenomenal presence in "Right here Right now". He sings again and so do many promising talents to deliver another promising album. After churning out a couple of average to above-average albums this year by reliable Pritam, every listener thoroughly anticipates blockbuster album from him. Can this Abhishek starrer be the one to hit jackpot? Let's get straight into its musical facts... 

In an era where crap-wordings and crudity has become paradigm of popular "filmi" music, it brings no big surprise to hear lewd lyrics and bizarre tones coming into "Panchamda" evergreen melody in "Mit Jaaye Gum (Dum Maaro Dum)". Pop diva Anushka Manchanda shows her snooty singing maneuvers in her huskier tones with peppier original tunes mixing well with symbolic hymns "Hare Krishna Hare Rama". This Pritam's outrageously dark composition is catchier in its wild tones but the attention-grabbing is Jaideep Sahni's audaciously penned wordings ("Aaj mere liye chair kheech raha hai, kal meri skirt kheechega...") that will surely raise many eyebrows. Its promotional music video featuring sultry Deepika Padukone has already created buzz for the flick but this track will be having its set of advocates and adversaries. There is nothing extraordinary in its raucously upbeat arrangements and it's all the quality works of veterans (composer R.D. Burman and lyricist Anand Bakshi) in its original tuneful settings that fuels up the tempo and peps up the dancing mood.
