Happy Bhag Jayegi Music Review: Grab This One
The tone was set right at the onset when the film's promo was out. It was quite apparent that this Mudassar Aziz directed film would be high on fun, dance, 'masti' and entertainment. This is what one expects from the music as well that has Sohail Sen as the composer and Mudassar picking up the mantle for lyrics too for each of the five songs.
No wonder, you head for that dance floor the moment Shahid Mallya begins to render 'Happy Oye'. A fun Punjabi celebration number that gets the foot tapping right at the onset, this one scores high on the energy quotient. Instantly catchy and promising colors, fun and frolic on screen, 'Happy Oye' has Harshdeep Kaur joining Shahid Mallya behind the mike and adding on to the party flavor.
The party continues the moment Mika Singh announces his entry with Gabru Ready To Mingle Hai. Clearly, this is one song that is giving good competition to Kaala Chashma for the top celebration number on the Bollywood musical scene today. A team of artists come together to make it happen, right from the composer and the lyricists (joined by Dee MC for the English rap lyrics) to the singers Tarranum Malik, Neeti Mohan and Danish Sabri. The effort indeed shows as the song turns out to be instantly catchy and makes you sing along as it plays.
It is the hook of 'Tera Tera Tera Tera' that plays in your mind the moment you are through listening to 'Aashiq Tera'. This is what makes you wonder if the song could well have been titled 'Tera Tera' as it has a better recollection quotient attached to it. Altamash Faridi is the right choice for this Sufi track that has a foot tapping appeal to it and succeeds well in making it three in a row for Happy Bhag Jayegi.
The album continued to engage you well, courtesy 'Zara Si Dosti' that follows next. Arijit Singhis in great form for this love song and Sohail Sen along with Mudassar Aziz bring on good variety as well in the film with this romantic outing. While each of the songs so far was seeped in North Indian flavor, this one has a Western base to it and does well in ensuring that as a listener, you nod in approval for what's on display.
Last to arrive is 'Yaaram' and while this one is good on ears as well, it needs some time to settle down with the listener. It isn't quite catchy enough to play in one's mind after the first listening itself. Still, the voice of Javed Ali stays on to be silken as ever, something which ensures that you do like what you hear and there is no trouble playing this romantic number all over again.
The music of Happy Bhag Jayegi works well with the listener and each of the five songs is good enough to be relished. While a couple of celebration numbers would ensure that the party is on, the remaining romantic tracks would keep those busy who are in mood to think fondly about the ones they love.
Our picks: Zara Si Dosti, Gabru Ready To Mingle Hai, Happy Oye, Aashiq Tera.
