When a movie is about as a highschool musical, expectations are clearly there for a youthful and vibrant rating within the providing. Vishal-Shekhar return from Scholar of the 12 months to the second instalment of the franchise and this time round they’ve a number of lyricists for firm. Contemplating the truth that the mantle of route has moved on from Karan Johar to Punit Malhotra, one waits to see how the soundtrack seems to be.
First to reach is the recreated model of 70s chartbuster ‘Yeh Jawaani Hai Deewani’ which has been offered as ‘The Jawaani Track’. Whereas the combo of R.D. Burman, Anand Bakshi and Kishore Kumar had created magic again then, the brand new workforce of Vishal-Shekhar, Anvita Dutt and Vishal Dadlani-Payal Dev chip in effectively to amalgamate the unique with the brand new model. This one is an experiment on the identical traces as Vishal-Shekhar’s ‘Bachna Ae Haseeno’ the place each new in addition to outdated world had built-in fairly seamlessly.
The one that really seems to be one of the best track of the album although is ‘Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiyaan’. Vishal Dadlani chips in along with his rap portion for this enjoyable quantity that has an intoxicating hook is just about on the traces of a number of chartbusters that Vishal-Shekhar had delivered round a decade in the past. Dev Negi and Payal Dev do effectively behind the mike for this enjoyable celebration quantity written by vayu that has the trio of Tiger Shroff, Tara Sutaria and Ananya Pandey come collectively on display and dance away to glory. A chartbuster observe.
But once more, it is the hook that makes an instantaneous affect, what with Vishal-Shekhar getting the youthful really feel proper once more. It’s all the time so pleasant to listen to Shekhar Ravjiani’s voice, particularly contemplating the truth that the composer sings fairly hardly ever. He does fairly effectively although in Kumaar written ‘The Hook Up Track’ which has Alia Bhatt making a particular look alongside Tiger Shroff. Neha Kakkar is the singing companion of Shekhar right here and collectively they be sure that the album thus far has three out of three songs working fairly effectively.
Sanam Puri, who had shot to fame with ‘Dhat Tere Ki’ In Punit Malhotra’s Gori Tere Pyaar Mein is again for the filmmaker’s Scholar of the 12 months 2. The track he renders this time round is ‘Fakira’ which has Neeti Mohan giving him firm behind the mike. A ‘desi’ quantity with a touch of ‘sufi’ to it, this one written by Anvita Dutt is the type that wants time to develop and therefore ought to be unveiled pronto if it has to succeed in out to the viewers.
Subsequent to reach is ‘Predominant Bhi Nahin Soya’ and but once more it’s Anvita Dutt who’s the lyricist right here. A Punjabi-Hindi observe by Arijit Singh, this one is a tragic quantity and surprisingly does not fairly fetch your consideration even after repeated listening to. Agreed that the texture needed to be sober proper by way of its enjoying time contemplating its unhappy theme, one simply hopes that it does not decelerate the proceedings of the movie’s narrative, particularly if it arrives within the second half.
The album concludes on a excessive although with Vishal Dadlani and Payal Dev pairing up for Anvita Dutt written ‘Jat Ludhiyane Da’. On the identical traces as ‘Mumbai Dilli Di Kudiyaan’ and ‘The Hook Up Track’ relating to the enjoyable youthful quotient, this one might not go on to emerge as an enormous chartbuster however nonetheless ought to do its job effectively to maintain the movie’s proceedings entertaining. Furthermore, it’s sung fairly effectively too, particularly by Payal Dev who has bagged good alternative to characteristic in as many as three songs and has made a great impression every time round.
One anticipated the music of Scholar of the 12 months 2 to be largely enjoyable and youthful, and in that facet the soundtrack does effectively. There are half a dozen songs in there and whereas a few these are set to be chartbusters, one other couple is about to develop in days to return.
