Nautanki Saala (Music review), Hindi – Mikey Mccleary, Ayushmann Khurrana, Rochak Kohli, Falak Shabir & Rashid Khan

Posted by Karthik

Mera mann, composed and sung by Falak Shabir is a throwback to the old-world balladry – soft and serene, both original and the reprise. Tulsi Kumar’s version and the Remix are atrocious, however. Ayushmann and Rochak Kohli repeat their Pani da rang magic in Saadi galli – the resonant and guitar’y Original, the funky Unplugged and the mighty catchy Remix – are all eminently listenable, with Neeti Mohan joining Ayushmann in the vocals! Rashid Khan’s Sapna mera gains tremendously from Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s vocals to get past the generic, modern-day pathos template that pulls it a bit down. The soundtrack shifts to a different gear with Mikey McCleary unleashing his sound! His remixes of Tezaab’s So gaya, with wicked surf guitar, and Beta’s Dhak dhak, with absolutely kick-ass vocals by Saba Azad pulling a Suman Sridhar, are top-notch. Mike’s original songs too are fantastic – the sweeping vaudevillian sound in Ayushmann-sung Tu hi tu is wonderfully dreamy, while Indian X Factor winner Geet Sagar is superb in the reggae’ish Draamebaaz! In Dil ki, Mikey gets Saba to recreate his Bartender sound, with fabulous results, yet again! Nautanki Saala is a solid and fully loaded soundtrack, in variety and imagination!

    ‘Mera Mann’ seems to heavily inspired by

    Tu Hi Tu is an awesome song…loved it.
    Dhak Dhak Karne laaga is creepy and yet lovable!
    on the face of fake romanticism of Bollywood music!

    I don’t know why but Tu hi tu seems to have some shades of Po Una Cabeza

    Mera Mann seems to be copied from Alexander Rybak’s Funny Little World –
