‘Bbuddah…Hoga Terra Baap’ Amitabh album all the way (IANS Music Review)June 18th, 2011 - 9:19 am ICT by IANS
Film: “Bbuddah…Hoga Terra Baap”; Music Directors: Shekhar Ravjiani and Vishal Dadlani; Lyricists: Vishal Dadlani, Swanand Kirkire and Anvita Dutt Guptan; Singers: Amitabh Bachchan, Vishal Dadlani, Monali Thakur, Shekhar Ravjiani, Sunidhi Chauhan and Abhishek Bachchan; Rating: **
The soundtrack of “Bbuddah…Hoga Terra Baap” is an all and all Amitabh Bachchan album with four out of five tracks sung by the megastar himself. The songs are not extraordinary, but one can hear it once.
Soulful number “Haal-e-dil” crooned by Amitabh with backing vocals by Monali Thakur and Shekhar Ravjiani opens the album and sets the mood. The mushy outing starts with entire focus on Big B’s voice and minimal music, but as it progresses, the musical arrangement becomes stronger. The track is slow and likeable.
Next comes in the title track called “Bbuddah…hoga terra baap” and Amitabh has sung it in a Capella style, in which a person or a group sings without any instrumental sound. The song has a fun element owing to its witty lyrics. An interesting attempt.
It has a re-mixed version, but that is average.
Then comes “Go Meera Go”, again sung by Amitabh and his son Abhishek Bachchan, making it a rare event when the father and son have crooned together. It is a mix of Amitabh’s hit songs, including a rap section by Abhishek. The songs that are included are “Khaike paan banaras wala”, “Pag ghunghroo baandh meera naachi thi”, “Rang barse” and “Sara zamaana haseeno ka deewana” among others.
Finally, there is Sunidhi Chauhan singing “Main Chandigarh di star” that seems like an item number. It is an out and out dance number with strong beats and a fast pace. Nothing impressive in this number.
On the whole, an average soundtrack, which sounds suitable for the film.
