Music Review : Himmatwala

Himmatwala is an upcoming movie starring Ajay Devgn, Tamanna and Paresh Rawal. It is a remake of 1983 hit Himmatwala which starred Jeetender and Sridevi. The movie is directed by Sajid Khan. It is produced by UTV motion pictures and Vashu Bhagnani. Akshay Kumar and Jeetendra are doing a cameo in this movie.

The music of the film is given by Bappi Lahiri and Sajid-Wajid. The album has 5 songs in total. One of the song is composed by music composers Sachin-Jigar.

 Songs :

‘The album starts off with iconic song “Nainon Mein Sapna” recreated by Sajid-Wajid. The song is almost like the original one with very few changes.  Shreya Ghosal and Kishore Kumar’s son Amit Kumar have this song. The song is good but it is no where close to the original.

The next song is “Taki Taki”, sung by vocal super houses Mika Singh and Shreya Ghosal. It is loud, cheesy and fun song. It starts off very similar to “chinta ta chita” from Rowdy Rathore.  But again it holds its owm tune. This song also is recreated one from the original. This song pays a better hostage to the original than the first song.

Dhoka Dhoka is a true 80s song, it is kind of 80s item numbers and who better to sing than Sunidhi Chauhan and Mamta Sharma who have given us iconic Munni and Sheila. The Bhappi Lahari’s late entry in the song is very nice.

“Bum Pe Laat” is a sweet kiddish song. Shaan vocals complement the song really well. The background chorus by kids gives the feel to the song. It has got light music arrangements and frothy rhythm.

“Thank God Its Friday” is 80s retro song. Sachin-Jigar who composed the song have given a fitting tribute to the musicians of that era. Sunidhi Chauhan is reliably fun and gives the song that extra edge.

Bottom line : Overall the album is good but if you are not a fan of retro music then this is certainly not for you.
