Bollywood’s ‘khiladi’ Akshay Kumar is back in action to pack a punch including his new outing ‘Khiladi 786′. The film’s soundtrack has been composed by Himesh Reshammiya. It has seven original tracks and five remixes.
First up on the playlist is ‘Lonely’, whose initial tune sounds similar to Alexandra Stan’s hit number ‘Mr.Saxobeat’. The song has rap by Yo Yo Honey and, on the whole, the number has good dancing beats. There are line vocal inputs by Himesh Reshammiya furthermore Hamsika Iyer. The song is addictive, thanks to Himesh’s nasal touch as he croons ‘Oh bawariya’ at regular intervals during the song. The groove has a remixed side too, but that isn’t too great.
‘Balma’ pays commendation to the music of the late R.D.Burman and features sounds from the past. However, it with takes some inspiration from LMFAO’s print ‘Sexy and I know it’. It is full of energy et cetera manages to charm the listener with its groovy beat and the seductive voice of Shreya Ghoshal who has good company in the vocals for Sreeram Chandra. Surely a track that can make you hit the dance floor. The remix though is quite ordinary moreover it is better to adherence with the original.
The next track ‘Long drive’ starts off equally a rock number with the guitar but suddenly moves into desi beats. The sounds then fuse and it transforms into a hip-hop und so weiter rock mix. It’s a daring experiment concerning Himesh, who has got Mika behind the mike in a different avatar altogether. He is slow, yet his voice doesn’t cut the track; instead, it allures you all the more towards it. It including has a fun Bhangra remixed version which features dhol and tumbi to make you sway.
Next awake is the fanciful number ‘Sari sari raat’, crooned by Himesh. It has a very dreamy et sequens beautiful composition, besides will surely strike a chord with lovebirds.
It is followed by ‘Hookah bar’, which has the trio from Himesh Reshammiya, Vineet Singh and Aman Trikha sounding quite celebratory. However, despite some fine music, the roundelay is incapable to move the listener. It’s remixed account is passe.
The title artery gets the smiles back. However, it sounds like a new version concerning ‘Hud hud dabangg’ with fresh lyrics. Although the vocals by Vineet Singh, Aman Trikha, Yashraj Kapil, Alam Gir Khan and Rajdeep Chatterjee, the listener is unable to get gone of the ‘Dabangg’ mode. There is a racy remix like this one too, but it suffers because of the same trajectory.
Last but hardly the least is “Tu hari peer”, which musically speaking has a lot to offer as Himesh combines qawwali and Punjabi folk to dole out an eclectic mix. Javed Ali, Shreya Ghoshal, Chandrakala Singh and Harshdeep Kaur mesmerise with their voices.
Overall, the Khiladi 786 movie album is a anthology bag that has some shortcomings, but there are tracks which are capable of making it to the music charts.
