This past year saw Anu Malik score an earlier hit in the month of january together with his contribution towards the Deol-starrer 'Yamla Pagla Deewana'. Though less than a monster hit, 'Tinku Jiya' has a fair couple of ft tapping using its infectious rhythm and groove. It had been successful that Malik needed, considering that his last large release before that came years earlier, in 2006's 'Jaan-E-Mann'. Now, this season, 'Chhanno' with you, Malik is searching for success again using the 'Gali Gali Chor Hai' soundtrack, though whether he finds it or otherwise, continues to be under consideration.
'Gali Gali Chor Hai' is really a social satire on corruption composed and directed by Rumi Jafry, with Akshaye Khanna, Shriya Saran and Mugdha Godse in starring roles. For Malik's soundtrack, lyrical contributions are created by Rahat Indori and Swanand Kirkire.
The mixture of Kailash Kher's vocals and Rahat Indori's lyrics alllow for an excellent combination on 'Gali Gali Chor Hai's title song. In preserving the little town configurations, the track takes the folk route in the tune too, shehnais, harmoniums and dholaks in abundance. The track recreates a qawalli type setting, with several voices, including those of music director Anu Malik, put in for that 'wah wah's. The primary reason the track holds a person's attention, though, is due to Indori's satirical, comical lyrics, which have a no-holds-barred swing in the country's systemic corruption, with lines like 'yeh topi, yeh dhoti, yeh kurte paijame, sab inke natak hain, sab inke drame.' To increase the effect, Malik works within the orchestral tune from the National Song, 'Vande Mataram', for pathos, before returning towards the primary theme for any final burst of one's from Kher.
The title track, 'gali gali chor hai' is featured in 2 more versions, one a complete-blown remix in the Future Sounds Of Bombay, and also theother, a choral reprise entitled 'gali gali shor hai'. The remix works effectively, adding synth beats, whistles along with a nicely done hinglish rap section that picks on a single subjects as Rahat Indori's lyrics. The choral version is simply a simple forty-five second piece whose lyrics experience an optimistic finish for that film by recasting the primary refrain.
Anu Malik's own daughter, Anmol Malik features alongside Mohit Chauhan around the romantic 'suno suno'. The sunshine pop duet sees Chauhan in the element, despite the fact that Anmol does not quite easily fit in. Possibly a Shreya Ghoshal will be a better pick with this breezy number. Still, with some nice strings and flutes parsing the track together, it can make for any fair listen.
The album bows by helping cover their it really hopes is a newsmaker of the number, within the item number, 'Chhanno', that's recognized to feature Veena Malik at her boldest best. However, with 'Munnis', 'Sheilas' and 'Chikni Chamelis' abounding, it can't come as a surprise if the latest nautch-girl will get lost within the crowd. How a number opens, having a noisy chorus shouting for Chhanno, Malik appears to become searching to recreate the formula for their own hit from this past year, 'Yamla Pagla Deewana's 'Tinku Jiya', though he does not quite succeed. The track's tune appears to become drawing a great deal from the different, older item number though, 'Omkara's Bipasha Basu-starrer 'beedi'. Though Mamta Sharma is ideal for the amount and also the folk plans built around whistles, beens, sarangis and much more work nicely, the amount is simply too short on energy hitting the objective. In connection with this, Swanand Kirkire's lyrics turn to be a little of the disappointment too. DJ G Kilogram looks to spice the amount up with the addition of a brand new electronic tune towards the featured remix from the track, and the efforts repay for an extent, although the number still does not quite transfer to chartbuster territory.
The only real factor that's valued at a listen around the 'Gali Gali Chor Hai' OST is its title track that might simply make you need to use it loop. Though 'suno suno' is really a fair effort, 'Chhanno' could be securely given a miss. Overall, 'Gali Gali Chor Hai' is really a middling effort in the veteran Anu Malik, who must buck up if he's revisit his glory days when confronted with more youthful competition.
