Music review of the much anticipated Dhoom 3

What comes to your mind when I say Dhoom?Dhoom dhoom come and light my fire
Dhoom dhoom let me take you higher
Dhoom dhoom I wanna feel that burnin?
Dhoom dhoom it’s a wild emotion
Dhoom dhoom passion and devotion
Dhoom dhoom now the wheels are turnin?

And what comes to your mind when I say Dhoom 2? Dhoom again and run away with me on a roller coaster ride
Dhoom again and see your wildest dreams slowly come alive
Dhoom again and gotta break the rules and party all the time
Dhoom again we gotta steal the show you know that ain’t no crime

Yep! That’s right! These two songs immortalized the Dhoom franchise and we wanted more of these movies for the amazing sound track. Did the makers of Dhoom 3 have the same effect on us that Dhoom and Dhoom 2 had? The music has been composed by Pritam as usual and the lyrics have been brilliantly penned by Amitabh Bhattacharya.

Now, as far as the singers go, the makers of Dhoom 3 decided to go all crazy and hired different singers for different songs. They hired Siddharth Mahadevan, Shilpa Rao, Sunidhi Chauhan, Mohit Chauhan, Aditi Singh Sharma, Shivam Mahadevan, Anish Sharma, Julius Packiam, Naya and last but not the least Pritam to sing the songs.

Did they give in their 100%? You are about to find out!

Malang
The first minute of the song just has music. Then, there are lyrics trying too hard to make the song sound cool. Like in Kolaver Di way. Malang malang hai ishq mera. Seriously? Not a fan! And we don’t really like the mix of sufi music with contemporary beats. Very average song. It’ll take a lot of effort to get over SLB’s brilliant music.

Kamli
Is Katrina Kaif trying to beat Aishwarya Rai in this song? Because Kamli looks and sounds like a very Kat-ish version of Crazy Kiya Re. Sunidhi Chauhan did an excellent job with the song and we love her voice. Again, something is wrong with the background score. Somethings is missing. Can’t figure out what.

Tu Hi Junoon
Hmm.. The Gestalt concept doesn’t work here. The lyrics are good alright. The music is also good and Mohit Chauhan’s voice is like a breath of fresh air. But put everything together and make it one, it’s just chaos. Aren’t montages supposed to be like.. umm better? Guess not!

Dhoom Machale Dhoom
Now this is one song which did not disappoint us. By the time this song was released, we had lost hope. I for one, thought that Pritam lost his touch and should just quit composing(copying) music. And then Dhoom Machale came and restored out faith in Pritam and balance was restored on planet earth!

Bande Hain Hum Uske
If Dhoom Machale restored balance then I don’t know what to say about Bande Hai Hum Uske. Pretty decent lyrics. Excellent music and beautifully sung by Shivam Mahadevan and Anish Sharma. This has to be the best song in the entire album. Kudos kids!

The arabic version of Dhoom Machale
Need I review this? Agreed that we really liked the arabic lyrics in Emraan Hashmi’s Kaho na Kaho and to be quite honest we obsessed over the song for more than a year. But I’m sorry guys. You didn’t create the same magic or effect! If I could use a hashtag, then it would be #sadbutture!
