Billu Barber Music Review—Lively Music at this Barber Shop!

It took time to seep in, but it’s only been 4 weeks since Rab Ne Bana Di Jodi‘s music has been entertaining the audience that we already have another musical featuring SRK! This time around, Shah Rukh Khan returns in full-form with full fledged dance numbers (four of them) in the film that he is only supposed to make a guest appearance. For the first time we have hot-shot music director Pritam giving music for an SRK film. No gems here, but the music is lively and it will definitely pass your time!

The album contains 7 songs, out of which four are item numbers by SRK. First, the item songs. Marjaani featuring (ft) SRK and Kareena Kapoor is a good dance number with punjabi lyrics. It starts great, but the tone loses it’s charm in the middle. Love Mera Hit Hit ft SRK and Deepika Padukone is an out-an-out blockbuster dance number for which I am ready to give my first day first show ticket money. This is by far this the best Neeraj Sridhar-Pritam combo and Tulsi Kumar’s sweet voice is infectious. The entire song—lyrics, beat, etc–are all superb and especially the parts sung by Tulsi Kamar. A complete mass-massala number! When Ae Aa O ft SRK (in a stage show?) started I thought it was just normal, but there is something refreshing and lively about it; KK does an amazing job. You Get Me Rocking & Reeling ft SRK and Priyanka Chopra is the kinda song that you feel you’ve heard it before either in hindi or english. A slow, groovy number, but the posters of this song really get you rocking and reeling though not the song. The other three songs are Billu Barbers and this is critical. Two out of the three are good. Khudaya Khair is sweet and nice family song, Jaoon Kahan is a sad one with typical mass beats, but Billoo Bhayankar does not impress at all.

The packaging of the CD is a treat for SRK fans. The entire background has posters of Shah Rukh Khan’s films over the years that made him the Star he is—flops, average ones, hit, super-hit, blockbuster hits etc. A full page poster of the back of his jacket that reads King Khan. Clearly, SRK has gone all the way in this film to announce loud and clear that from the early 1990’s to the end of the first decade of 2000, he is the Number One Hero. When you look at this collage of posters—DDLJ, Rab Ne…, Chalte Chalte, Koyla, Zamaana Deewana..etc you really feel that SRK is a full-fledged commercial hero who did a wide variety of roles at the top postion. Flop or hit, the money comes in…thats King Khan and thats what he wants to show. The CD cover easily qualifies as a collectible for SRK fans.

Mr. Inkenti’s Movienomics Verdict: One Thumb Up! No gems, but the songs are lively and dance worthy.

Mr. Inkenti’s Pick: Love Mera Hit Hit, Ae Aa O, Kudaya Khair
