Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana Music Review: A Pleasant Surprise
You are a tad skeptical around what to expect from the music of Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana. That said, considering the fact that this is a celebratory film, there is scope for some feel good and high energy songs in the soundtrack. While composer Vipin Patwa and lyricist Dr. Sagar lead the pack, there are many others who contribute to the music of this album that has as many as seven tracks.
Newcomers Revant & Siddharth are roped in for the title song Laali Ki Shaadi which is written by director Manish Harishankar who turns into a lyricist here. A celebration number set around a North Indian wedding, this one has Sukhwinder Singh leading charge and singing in his characteristic manner. It is good to hear him truly enjoying behind the mike and one can well expect good story telling through this song.
The flow of the music changes soon after though with KK coming on board for Bezubaan. He is in a very good form here for this song that has been put to tune by Vipin Patwa and written by Mahima Bhardwaj. This one has a good combination of lyrics, music and singing coming in tandem as what one gets to hear is a soulful melody that has a feel-good setting to it and keeps you engaged while it plays on.
Fortunately for the album, the overall effect only continues to get better as Arko comes up with the best song of Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana, Rishta. Very well tuned, pitched, styled and arranged, this one also boasts of some good lyrics by Ghulam Mohd Khavar. Arko indeed composes this one romantic number well with a soft rock theme to it, and what makes it even better is rendition by Ankit Tiwari which takes it all to the next level. A winner by all means.
Vipin Patwa returns, this time with Dr. Sagar, for Rog Jaane. Yet another love song, this one is seeped into Indian melody and has a very sweet feel to it. What further ensures that you give it a thorough listening is the rendition of Palak Muchhal and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan which is sweet, simple and effective. The song moves on like a cool breeze and though it has an old fashioned appeal to it, you definitely not mind as it works for those who still like their Bollywood music to stick to the basics.
Immediately after there is another version too with Mohit Lalwani coming in place of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. He does well though for obvious reasons, you dig into to the version by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan due to the experience that comes into play.
The one that you want to give a quick skip though after the first listening itself is Mano Ya Na Mano. Based on folk/traditional music that was also the base for Mere Angne Mein [Laawaaris], this one marks the return of composers Revant & Siddharth. Unfortunately though, the song does sound odd at many junctions and the rendition by Malini Awasthi doesn't turn out to be much effective either.
The album concludes with Vipin and Dr. Sagar's Naino Ke Pokhar which had former coming behind the mike along with Mohd. Irffan. A sad song which has an out and out situational appeal to it, this is one of those numbers that arrives during one of those pathos-filled sequences of a film.
Though the soundtrack of Laali Ki Shaadi Mein Laaddoo Deewana doesn't quite conclude on a high, what works are some of the pleasant surprises in the form of melodies that arrive at the beginning of the album. It is songs like Rishta, Bezubaan and Rog Jaane that warrant repeat hearing for sure.
