Music Review - Shaadi No 1

Ranjani Saigal

(This article is sponsored by Sounds Of India)

Genre - Comedy
Year - 2005
Director - David Dhawan
Producer - Vashu Bhagnani
Music Director - Anu Malik
Star Cast - Sanjay Dutt, Fardeen Khan, Zayed Khan, Sharman Joshi, Esha Deol, Ayesha Takia, Soha Ali Khan, Riya Sen, Aarti Chhabria and Sophia.

With lyrics like “Hello Madam – I am your Adam” and “Jitne Channel TV Ke UTne Nakare Biwi ke” one cannot blame Anu Malik for providing an insipid score! David Dhawan - Vashu Bhagnani team has come up with yet another “No 1” movie.  The duo previously worked on Coolie No 1, Hero No 1 and Biwi No 1.

The movie does boast a fine star cast including Sanjay Dutt who never fails to impress.  The songs seem to be designed for mass appeal. The opening song Chaand Ko Tod Doonga sets the tone for idiotic lyrics - “Tu jo han kahe to main pehli ko chod donnga”. An Abhijeet - Anuradha Sriram presentation , it does have some fun beats of the Ishq Kamina kind. Anu Malik has done quite a lot of “cut-paste” work but less monotony would have been nice!

Now for some creative lyrics! Those days are gone when women were compared to the moon! It is now it is time for comparison with -  guess what – a television! Jine Channel TV Ke utne nacre Biwi ke”  Sung by Sonu Nigam and Krishna, it is a kind of track that perhaps will be remembered for its idiotic lyrics and I suspect the picturization must be funny!

Indian idol finalist Rahul Vaidya makes a debut in this album  with 'God Promise Dil Dola',  One wonder why every track in this album has a like little English music as part of it!  We know it is the trend, but this album does it a little too much! Rahul Vaidya  makes a confident debut and adapts himself well to the 'latka-jhatka' style of the song. Shreya Ghosal does a decent job as well.

Rahul Vadiya and new comer Prajaktushulare do well in the next number “Hello Madam”. Despite idiotic lyrics, the tune is set to some fun beats. 'Dil Nahin Toda Kar Te is perhaps the best track on the album. The song sounds good thanks in no small measure to the talent of  Shaan and my favorite singer Sunidhi Chauhan .Their singing styles are so versatile and powerful  that they make any song sound reasonably good.

Guest composers Aqueel and Sanjeev present the next number which is quite a  high-voltage dance number, Aiyashi aiyashi. could potentially become a favorite on the dance floor.

This is a track I would rather not listen to but perhaps the comedy and the acting in the film may make up for bad lyrics and uninspired music. After it does have a wonderful star cast.

When we listen to such tracks one laments the demise of the value for good poetry

Woh sher aur who shayari
Who kalam ki adakari
Jinhe naaz hain Hindi par who kahan hai!!
