Film: “Ugly Aur Pagli”; Music Composer: Anu Malik; Lyricist: Amitabh Verma; Singers: Shaan, Mika Singh, Anmol Malik, Anu Malik, Anushka Manchanda, Ishq Bector, Dibyendu Mukherjee, Vasundhara Das, Mohit Chauhan, Sunidhi Chauhan, Krishna, Hard Kaur; Music Rights; Ratings: *** Comedies don’t always have great audio tracks, but there are exceptions. And “Ugly Aur Pagli” is one of them. Anu Malik’s compositions are young and vibrant without sounding too mushy or immature.

Ishq Bector of “Aye hip hopper” fame seems to be the flavour of the season. He sings “Karle gunah ankhiya milake” along with Anushka Manchanda. The track is a Punjabi-cum-Hindi one with shades of rap and hip-hop. It is fun, playful and peppy and singers do complete justice to the song. Kudos to Anu Malik for making it an interesting piece!

Next is “Shut up aa nachle”, which is sung by Anu Malik, Vasundhara Das and Dibyendu Mukherjee. It has a Latin flavour to it and lyrics by Amitabh Verma are in Hinglish. While Vasundhara’s voice is very soothing, Anu’s rendition doesn’t really match up.

“Talli main talli ho gayi” is a sure shot dance number. Rendered by Hard Kaur, Anmol Malik and Mika, the song has a mix of Punjabi-Hindi lyrics that are innovative and good-humoured.

As soon as you see Mohit Chauhan’s name on the credits of “Yeh nazar aaye jaaye”, you know the song shouldn’t disappoint. No doubts, the singer has rendered yet another commendable piece that boasts of romantic music and lyrics.

“Yeh nazar aur ye” follows - an absolutely peppy and sprightly track. And Sunidhi’s vivacious rendition does complete justice to the composition. It is a love piece that has a contemporary touch to it. While it is not a chartbuster hit, it won’t sink without a trace either.

“Ugly Aur Pagli” offers enjoyable music and the songs have a special zing in them. It definitely makes for some interesting hear.
