Music Review: Dabangg (2010)

Pin It

Sajid-Wajid have been saving their best for Salman Khan for quite some time now. Veer was something that actually proved it where they went beyond their average and came up with a lot better songs. And this time it's Dabangg, where they come up with the likes of Rahat, Sonu and Sukhwinder once again. Here is a review.

The album starts with a beautiful 'Tere mast-mast do nain', sung by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, who comes alone for the first version of the song. The song, which is utterly romantic and good to hear, gets a bit more on the fun side when Rahat goes high on notes with the lines 'tere mast mast do nain, mere dil ka le gaye chain.' A lovely listen, which gets more fun with video. In the duet version, Shreya comes up to join Rahat, and the two sing just wonderful again.

The very next song of the album is a peppy item number called 'Munni Badnaam hui Darling tere liye'. The song is pretty catchy and Mamta Sharma and Aishwarya not only sound good, they are quite different. Jalees Sherwani's lyrics are definitely going to rock the suburban and town areas of North India. I wouldn't say it's class, but it's definitely 'mass' thing.

Third song of the album, 'Chori kiya re jiya' is a soft, romantic number with Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal. This one, interestingly, is not too great for the first few times, but the song slowly catches up and one starts loving it as one listens it more and more. Also, the tune reminds me of the days when Sajid-Wajid used to compose for Sonu Nigam's albums, as I could find the same old touch here. Good one.

The next song, 'Hudd Hudd Dabangg', or 'Udd Udd Dabangg' as it's credited in the album, is good and has a good tune too, but the song doesn't get out of Omkara's shadow because not just the song is in the same style, the singer also is Sukhwinder again. Jalees Sherwani's lyrics are not breakthrough, but definitely not bad. Likeable, except that it reminds one of Omkara a bit too much.

The last song 'Humka Peeni Hai' is a song with words very typical to the area and people where the movie is based, and some music that would make these very people to dance to its tune. A down to earth number that you might not love if you ask for just class things, but might totally enjoy and fall for if you want to.

Overall, Dabangg is another good album by Sajid-Wajid, as they come up with quite a mix of variety. It has romance, it has fun, it has item number, and it has more. Try 'tere mast mast do nain' and 'chori kiya re jiya' if you want only class. And if you are one to enjoy, the entire album is yours.
