Pritam packs entertaining songs in ‘Ready’ album (IANS Music Review)April 30th, 2011 - 9:07 am ICT by IANS
Film: “Ready”; Music Directors: Pritam Chakraborty and Devi Shri Prasad; Lyricists: Amitabh Bhattacharya, Neelesh Misra, Ashish Pandit and Kumaar; Singers: Neeraj Shridhar, Amrita Kak, Tulsi Kumar, KK, Mika Singh and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan; Rating: *** and 1/2
The music of upcoming Salman Khan-starrer “Ready” can be described in two words - fun and entertaining. Songs are totally commercial, meant for the masses, and will make you gyrate.
The music album offers four originals and four remixes.
The album begins with a bang with “Dhinka chika”, a song by guest composer Devi Shri Prasad. It is the Hindi version of Shri’s Telugu composition “Ringa ringa”. In this version, Mika Singh and Amrita Kak go behind the mike to croon it. Full on energy, the composition has whistles and dhols’ sounds; it is a total dance number. Its infectious rhythm will force you to shake a leg. The track is a hit from the word go.
It has a remixed version too.
Then enters Pritam’s composition “Character dheela hai”, another sure-fire hit from the album. It has a lot of entertainment in store, thanks to interesting composition and lyrics. Crooned by Neeraj Sridhar and Amrita Kak, the song can become a favourite at DJ consoles. The music is such that you get addicted to it.
This one too has a remixed version.
Then the album takes a 360 degree turn and introduces a light, moderately paced love ballad “Humko pyar hua”. A one-time hear, the song is not very different from Pritam’s previous romantic compositions. It has Tulsi Kumar and KK behind the mike but does not have anything extraordinary.
There is a re-mixed song attached to it too.
“Meri ada bhi”, sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan and Tulsi Kumar, adds Punjabi favour to the album. The song is a contemporised version of Punjabi folk song “Laung gawacha”. With added lyrics and sounds, it turns out to be a foot-tapping and entertaining number.
There is a remixed version here too.
On the whole, the soundtrack is packed with fun tracks that are meant to liven up your evenings and parties.
