Rating: 2/5 Stars (Two stars)
Music Director/s: Meet Bros Anjjan
Baby starring Akshay Kumar in a lead role is all set to hit the theaters this month. The film as it looks is a stellar action drama and it seems has little space for song and dance sequences. The music album composed by Meet Brothers Anjjan has four tracks which are quite ordinary and passable. There is nothing special about this album!
Beparwah – Baby Music Review
For movies which are driven by a strong storyline and the songs are situational or used in the background, the task of composers is doubled. Baby is one such movie which may not require a lot of songs. Beparwah sung by Apeksha Dandekar is quite a different track. This is a story-teller song when it comes to its lyrics but lacks the quality to make it to your hearing list. This one seems a forced track and as long as it has some significance in the film, I am fine with its inclusion in the album. Overall, not something you would want to listen to.
Main Tujhse Pyaar Nahi Karta – Baby Music Review
Papon has a delightful voice and when he sings, he has the quality to really bring the song on another level. He croons Main Tujhse Pyaar Nahi Karta in a soulful manner and it is the poetry like lyrics that really make this song special. The only problem with this song is that after a point the song loses its way in the varied musical arrangements and leads to an abrupt ending.
Beparwah Mba Swag – Baby Music Review
Beparwah’s Mba Swag is much better than the original. It would have been a wiser decision to keep only one version and given the choice this remix with good EDM beats is certainly the first choice. This could even become a party number with its additional beats.
Main Tujhse Pyaar Nahi Karti – Baby Music Review
The unplugged version, Main Tujhse Pyaar Nahi Karti is decent enough. Sung by Ramya Behara, the song is on plain acoustic and that makes it very soulful. The vocals are excellent and this is certainly one of my favourites in the album.
The Last Word – Baby Music Review
The Baby album is petite with only four songs of which two are original and the other two are remix and unplugged versions of it. The album composed by Meet Brothers Anjjan is not exactly their signature style one but its not exceptional either. I am going with a 2/5 for this album.
