Music Review: 'Ajab Gazabb Love'
The soundtrack kicks off with a bang as Mika Singh's rocking voice comes your way in "Boom boom (lip lock)", a peppy number full of catchy beats. In terms of music, it is not the finest melody from Sajid-Wajid's storehouse, yet it manages to engage due to the cheeky lyrics by Priya Panchal and some good techno beats. Again, Mika's energetic voice just forces the listener to get on the floor and shake a leg on this track.
It also has a remixed version, which has a bit more beats thrown in here and there, but there's nothing to bowl you over. It's better to stick with the original, though one can sample the remixed version too.
Slowing down the tempo, "Tu" hits the right romantic note with Mohit Chauhan's soulful vocals. There is a good play of varied musical instruments while not downplaying the singer's voice in any way. The lyrics are quite smooth and Kausar Munir has done a good job by bringing out a dreamy essence.
The sound of piano emerges loud and clear in "Sun soniye", a romantic duet crooned by Mohammed Irfan and Antara Mitra. Their voices blend quite well and elevate the listener's spirit. The use of violin in various intervals is commendable and so are the mesmerizing lyrics, penned by Kausar Munir.
There is also a remixed version of this track, but one fails to understand the necessity of turning a blissful soft track into a club number. The composers have done a decent job by transforming it into a racy song with beats, but it fails to move you.
Rounding up the album is "Nachde Punjabi", an out and out Bhangra track, sung by Dalvinder Singh. There is a good fusion of traditional dhol beats with modern sounds and some authentic Punjabi lyrics by Sukhjit Thandi.
Overall, the soundtrack of 'Ajab Gazabb Love' is satisfactory. But it could have upped its ante had there been one or two more songs. Nonetheless, it has good energy to keep you rolling.
