Music Review: Lafangey Parindey (2010)

Pin It

Lafangey Parindey is the new venture of Yash Raj Films, and stars Neil Nitin Mukesh and Deepika Padukone. The music is composed by R Anandh, who has earlier done literally thousands of ads and also composed for Sunny Deol starrer, Zor, with his band members. Here is a review of his Lafangey Parindey.

Lafangey Parindey starts with the title song which has quite a rock feel to it, though the song is not what one would call exactly rock. Anyway, the song has a punch to it and does attract one even in a thirty second promo. Good singing by Rohit Sarkar.

With the very next song Mann Lafanga, Anandh gets into a very Bollywood flavor as he comes up with a melodious tune and gets Mohit Chauhan to sing it. Sounds like Anandh is quite in a mood to give a hit like Pritam. The song has a kind of 'old' feel to it and has good, romantic, and what I'd call them, nomadic lyrics. Needless to say, Mohit sings the song to his best. Definitely worth a listen.

Monty Sharma's favorite Shail Hada is finally getting a place in Bollywood. This time he sings for Anandh with Anushka Manchanda. The song, Dhatad Tatad is one of its type -- noisy, with an awfully simple and very meaningless mukhda (first lines), tongue sticking, and at the same time, pretty good on lyrics. You might just hate the song at first and also love it after you listen to it ten times. In one word, addictive. Must try once.

Nain Parindey, the next song of the album, is what one calls soulful music. Shilpa Rao gets to render this slow, soft, bit sad, quite intellectual, and highly poetic song. I think I've said it all. All that remains is to say, Go, Listen to it.

And here comes Suraj Jagan. The once favourite of Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy is now so famous that once you see the name, you expect something 'rock'ing. Yes, you are right. Rang daalein, the next song of the album, is one fine example of this new developing sub-genre which you may call Bollywood Rock. Some rocking music by Anandh and some really wonderful singing by Suraj, especially because the words he's singing and the attitude in his voice go just hand in hand.

And then, there is this small instrumental piece called Born to fly which is quite good in the first half, but gets Bollywoodishly-dramatic in the second half. Oh, the "Lafangeyyy Parindeyyy" at the end sounded good to me.

Also, there is a Club Mix of Man lafangaa in the album. Not that it's something great, but an okay listen, not bad.

Overall, Lafangey Parindey is a good album with some typical and some very new songs. Although the typical old ones look a bit out of the track, I won't count it as a negative, as the songs are good.
