Bangistan Music Review

Movie: Bangistan

Cast: Riteish Deshmukh,Pulkit Samrat,Jacqueline Fernandez

Director: Karan Anshuman

Music director: Ram Sampath



1.Ishq Karenge-Sona Mohapatra,Abhishek Nailwal,Shadab Faridi

An upbeat qawwali number opens this album of Delhi Belly and Fukrey fame Ram Sampath. This dance number is highly energetic, with the right dose of funkiness to it. Sona Mohapatra excels with her sultry vocals while Abhishek Nailwal and Shadab Faridi complement her well. While this track joins the bandwagon of chartbusters, the tune is just an average one.

2.Hogi Kranti-Ram Sampath,Abhishek Nailwal

This is the most funniest song of recent times. It's the terrorist version of 'Hum honge kaamyab'. The lyrics provoke genuine guffaws while Ram Sampath's and Abhishek Nailwal's carefree singing makes it for a breezy listen. If a patriotic number can have a hilarious version, then this number is the pinnacle of it. Enjoyable!

3.Saturday Night-Aditi Singh Sharma,Benny Dayal,Neeraj Shridhar,Janusz Krucinski

Everything about this party number is stereotyped. Right from the European flavor, the energetic beats and the powerful vocals of Aditi Singh Sharma, Benny Dayal, Neeraj Shridhar and Janusz Krucinski sound bland. But this song would surely make its way to the party floors just for the sake of it.

4.Maula-Ram Sampath,Rituraj Mohanty

After some peppy numbers, Ram Sampath comes up with a soulful situational number. With mellowed beats and mesmerizing vocals of Rituraj Mohanty & Ram Sampath, this number is sure to grow on the listeners after a few listens. This track excels despite having minimal orchestration. Mellifluously inspirational!

5.Meri Zidd-Ram Sampath,Siddharth Basrur

The beginning of this number is downright deceptive. When you think that you are in for a melodious treat, Ram Sampath surprises you with a spot on hard rock track. The frenzied guitar strums and raw vocals of Siddharth Basrur are top class, while Ram Sampath does a commendable job with his vocals. Rocking!

6.Is Duniya Se Ladna Hai-Suraj Jagan,Abhishek Nailwal

More South-Indianish in terms of tune, this number is yet another situational one in the movie. Easily accessible lyrics, foot-tapping beats and hoarse voices of Suraj Jagan and Abhishek Nailwal make this number an engaging listen. But you might not want to listen to this song after the first listen.

7.Ishq Karenge (EDM Version)-Sona Mohapatra,Abhishek Nailwal,Shadab Faridi

This is an overloaded version of the popular Ishq Karenge number. EDM sequencing is the only distinguishable factor of this number which is otherwise unnecessary for the soundtrack.

Verdict:

Ram Sampath delivers a funky soundtrack for this humorous movie. Though the songs aren't innovative, they can be listened for enjoyment.

Rating: ***
