Album Released: May 2018
Our expectations for the music album of a movie like “VEERE DI WEDDING” remains high, because we expect the songs to be peppy, loud and high spirited, but director Shashanka Ghosh’s film starring Kareena Kapoor Khan, Sonam Kapoor Ahuja, Swara Bhaskar and Shikha Talsania presents us with 8 songs without any real music or lyrics to show. The tunes lack the lustre or sheen that should have been there in an upbeat, coming of age story revolving around the lives of four childhood friends Kalindi (Kareena Kapoor), Avni (Sonam Kapoor), Meera (ShikhaTalsania) & Sakshi (Swara Bhaskar). The movie is set against the backdrop of Delhi, where these 4 girls are born and brought up.
Enjoy the GaanaP Review for the songs below.
This catchy track has become a recent internet sensation and can be particularly heard being played in the gyms these days. It has been composed by Qaran and sung by Badshah. Kareena and Sonam look phenomenally gorgeous, as they try to break through some set of male stereotypes, but we feel that Ghosh could have brought about something as appealing as “Kala Chasma”. Rating: 4/5
Anvita Dutt’s wacky, out of the box lyrics become the main source of entertainment in this song. Vishal Mishra and Payal Dev’s singing is somehow moderate. Vishal Mishra should have spent more time and come up with something better. Rating: 2/5
Aa Jao Na
This is far better than many of the other songs in this album. Raj Shekhar’s done really well with the lyrics. Even though Arijit’s suave and mellow voice adds another dimension to this song, but the music by Shashwat Sachdev seems monotonous. Even Arijit seems to drag himself at certain points in the song. Rating: 3/5
An outstanding number sans any loopholes, “Veere” will turn out to be a perfect travel song. It depicts the inseparable bond of friendship between the girls. The hoard of singers, Vishal Mishra, Aditi Singh Sharma, Dhvani Bhanushali, Nikita Ahuja, Payal Dev, Lulia Vantur, and Sharvi Yadav have done a super-fantastic job with the singing. We appreciate Vishal Mishra’s efforts on this one. Rating: 5/5
Pappi Le Loo
Shashwat Sachdev somehow falls a little loose with this track. Sunidhi sings the song in her real, booming avatar and the song absolutely suits her voice and singing style. Shashwat perfectly accompanies Sunidhi with the singing. Shellee or Shailendra Singh Sodhi is extremely creative with the rowdy, rustic lyrics. Rating: 1/5
Bhangra Ta Sajda
The attempt to recreate a smashing Bhangra track turned out to be entirely futile. Sashwat Sachdev tried his best and has been successful to quite an extent, but still, in spite of efforts by Neha Kakkar and Romy, the song couldn’t create the impact that it should have. Rating: 2/5
This highly energetic dance number has been composed and written by “White Noise”, though they are quite new and don’t have prior experience, they tried their best to add an EDM effect and create a proper discotheque, dancing melody. Enbee has worked on the Rap part. Divya Kumar and Jasleen Royal are perfect with the singing but White Noise could have done better with the lyrics. The lyrics make the song sound quite boring by the end. Rating: 3/5
Even though the singers, composers and lyricists tried to bring about something new and spectacular, as this film has been the most anticipated film of the year, but somewhere we feel that the album misses out on the punch that it should have had.
