Mere Brother Ki Dulhan is a romantic comedy produced by Yash Raj starring Imran Khan, Ali Zafar and Katrina Kaif. The music of this film is composed by the talented Sohail Sen who debuted with a brilliant score for Whatâs Your Rashee which was quite successful commercially also. The lyrics are by Irshad Kamil who is famous for writing romantic songs. So the expectations here are immense as it boasts of a talented team.
The first track of the album, the title track âMere Brother Ki Dulhanâ sung by K.K and Krishna Beura, is a fun track with some whacky phrases such as â matrimonial si aankheinâ and âpg ki teziâ. It starts off with the strumming of a guitar following the chorus part. The lyrics here overpower the composition which completely suits the theme of the movie. It is currently on air and is creating quite a buzz thanks to some colorful and chirpy picturization.
The next track is the by now famous âDhunkiâ sung by Neha Bhasin in a grungy style which perfectly blends with the arrangements of the composition. The phrase âdhunki dhunki laageâ is quite catchy and also the lyrics complements the composition. There is an aggressive use of the electronic guitar in the interlude portions which creates an overall rocking impact. With Katrina Kaif at the centrestage of the music video, itâs not surprisingly becoming quite a rage!
Next comes âChoomantarâ which starts off as a fairy song with the cute voice of a small girl. It is sung by Benny dayal and Aditi singh Sharma and both of them have done a wonderful job. Itâs tune and setting reminded me of the title track of âWhatâs Your Rasheeâ as that song was also of the same genre ie; Blues. There is a considerable use of synthesizer and the beats are western. The chorus part is very effectively used throughout the song which adds a mystical touch to it.
The fifth track of the album âMadhubalaâ sung by Ali Zafar and Shewta Pandit is a regular bollywood masala song which has a Bhojpuri feel to it and is quite fast paced. Singing by Ali Zafar is energetic while Shweta Pandit doesnât get much scope as itâs mainly a male dominated song. Lyrics are also the routine types as is the composition.
Finally we get âDo Dhaari Talwarâ which is also fast paced but it is much better than the previous song thanks to its innovative composition in antara portions and excellent rendition by Shahid Mallya. Shewta Pandit provides able support. The lyrics are imaginative yet are massy to the core as was needed for this type of song.
After the six original tracks, there are two remixes by âJoshilayâ which are not up to the mark and robs off the essence of their original counterparts.
My Picks: Dhunki, Choomantar, Isq Risk, Do Dhaari Talwar.
