Besharam Music Review
Music Direction : Lalit Pandit, Ishq Bector
Lyrics : Rajeev Barnwal, Nikhat Khan & Himanshu Kishan Mehra
What I expected? : Another commercial outing from Ranbir Kapoor must have good backing music. But pretty skeptical about what to expect from Lalit Pandit.
Tu Hai is your quintessential romantic song, very good job composition and arrangement wise, but for singers like Shreya Ghoshal and Sonu Nigam, just plain cake walk. Nice one! #Repeat
Dil Ka jo Haal Hai definitely has the late 90’s-early 2000’s hangover and bringing Abhijeet Bhattacharya behind the mic helps only in increasing it with his retro styled vocals while Shreya Ghoshal tries her best to sound contemporary.
Tere Mohalle is an attempt to ape ‘Munni Badnaam’ with the same singer duo, Mamata Sharma and Aishwarya Nigam, and the success of the item number track will depend heavily on the picturisation.
Title song of Besharam by Ishq Bector is passable techno, with mind boggling lyrics.
Love ki Ghanti seems like an extension to ‘Ala Barfi’, same retro template complete with some fabulous singing job+voice overs from Ranbir Kapoor, Sujeet Shetty and Amitosh Nagpal and absolutely quirky lyrics! Loved it!
Chal Hand Uthake Nachche is sufficiently trippy and foot tapping with the explosive trio of Daler Mehndi, Mika Singh and Sunidhi Chauhan raging all over it! #Repeat
Aa Re Aa Re, another item dance number it seems, thankfully remains safe within the usual but energetic vocals of Mika Singh and Shreya Ghoshal even with the mostly-absurd lyrics! #Repeat
Remixes for all the songs except Chal Hand and Tu Hai are included along with an unplugged version for Tu Hai.
Verdict : Lalit Pandit delivers an almost safe outing with Besharam, but the current form is only a shadow of the Jatin-Lalit duo of the past. Shelf life of tracks is on doubt but definitely will serve for good promotions of the film. Good attempt!
Must Hears! : Tu Hai
