Great Grand Masti Music Review: Goes Well With The Film’s ‘Masti’ Theme
When a film's promotion begins with a song that is titled Teri Kamar Ko, you pretty much know what to expect from rest of the soundtrack. Since as a franchise, Masti is meant to be quite fast paced, you are gifted a soundtrack by Sanjeev Darshan, Sharib & Toshi and Superbia (Shaan, Gourov & Roshin) along with lyricists Kumaar, Manoj Yadav and Sameer Anjaan that lasts a mere 13 minutes.
13 minutes? That's right! For four songs in the film, this comes to an average of a little over three minutes for each of it, which is quite lower than the duration of an average Hindi film song. It is apparent that director Indra Kumar wanted music of his film to be accelerated and the promos so far have given this indication as well.
No wonder, once brothers Sanjeev Rathod and Darshan Rathod get together to rap for Teri Kamar Ko, you know how Riteish Deshmukh, Vivek Oberoi and Aftab Shivdasani would have made a dash towards their dancing shoes and hit the floors. A quintessential dance number that should find its way into the DJ's collection, it has Kanika Kapoor chipping in for some good fun as well, hence lending it a pacy feel.
With the stage and setting that has Great Grand Masti written all over it, Toshi Sabri and Soniya Sharma go with the flow and sing Resham Ka Rumaal. Music lovers from the generation gone by would remember the namesake number that was rendered by Ila Arun ages back. Now it is time for Soniya to come up with a rendition of her own in this dance number that thankfully maintains its core essence to good effect.
Even though the film belongs to the boys, the songs are largely dominated by female voices. This is something that you realize once Shivranjani Singh and Shivangi Bhayana come together for I Wanna Tera Ishq. The song's video is already out and it is apparent that this time around, it is the girl (Urvashi) chasing all the boys even as the trio tries to run away from the seductive moves on play. Again, a fun track.
Last to arrive is Payal Dev and her song could well have been titled O Saiyaan Re, considering the fact that this is the hook that it actually carries in its duration. However, the song is titled Lipstick Laga Ke and as is suggested here, yet again there is a sense of seduction on play. While Payal does her job well in soaring the temperature, there is a rather needless rap portion thrown in. This isn't all as an experienced singer like Shaan isn't able to bring much to the table either.
Still, what works about Great Grand Masti is the quick pace of the soundtrack that also goes well with the 'masti' theme. Although there isn't anything that would be remembered about the songs a few weeks down the line, for the purpose of film's narrative it works reasonably well.
