This music review introduces you to a new film on male strippers! But don´t be so shocked. It´s not the first of it´s kind (remember Kaizad Gustad´s Bombay Boys?). Deepak Tijori´s directorial debut features some outstanding music and lyrics by Ravi Pawar and Ajay Jhingran that are truly hatke. Oops!

serves as a revitalizing change from the average Bollywood soundtrack.

Shaan leaves the listener breathless through his wonderfully restrained rendition of "Yaahein". The composition is novel and the song doesn´t take long to win you over. By the end of the song, you are sure to be reaching for the rewind button!

The music of Oops! introduces us to the versitility of Harshdeep, who was last heard in Aapko Pehle Bhi Kahin Dekha Hai. She blows you away in the pop-styled song, "Alag Alag." Combined with different lyrics and fun composition, "Alag Alag" makes for a good listen.

In "Uljalu" (meaning ´irrelivant´), a song that takes unpleasant shots at society, Harshdeep adds a sultry tone to her voice and electrifies the listener. The unusual lyrics add flavor to the song. The song is repeated, this time sung by Sonu Nigam. Although Sonu can sing almost anything flawlessly, his version of the song pales in comparison to Harshdeep´s. The music, of course, is fast-paced and extremely loveable.

"Jaane Yeh Kya" makes Oops! an official Bollywood soundtrack. How so? Because it´s a romantic number and we all know that a Hindi movie is incomplete without one! However, "Jaane Yeh Kya" is one of the best love songs, in terms of composition and singing, that we´ve been subjected to all year. It´s gentle on the ears and carries a catchy beat. The lyrics are typical for a love song. Sonu Nigam´s voice is so perfect, that he makes you wish the song never ends! Sung in award-winning style, this is the best song in the movie!

After a long time, Hariharan appears in a Hindi soundtrack. The ghazal, "Aye Dil" is soft and Hariharan´s deep vocals sooth the listener throughout the entire song. The lyrics are simple, but effective. The composition is hauting, along the lines of the Jagjit Singh ghazal "Koi Faryaad" from Tum Bin. All in all, "Aye Dil" is a wonderful song.

Then there is the "in-your-face" (in terms of composition) song, "Bhadka de," sung solo by KK and then in a duet with Sunidhi Chauhan. The song is very heavy on beats, and does get a little loud. It may not be as welcoming to the ears as the other songs, but still makes for a unique song.

One thing´s for sure: Deepak Tijori sure knows how to fetch great music for a film! Oops! is a sure keeper for the collection. How can you go wrong with a soundtrack that varies in composition, lyrics, and singers! Songs like "Uljalu," "Jaane Yeh Kya," and "Aye Dil" will certainly keep Oops! in your CD player for a long time to come!
