Kismet (Kismat) Love Paisa Dilli Music Review: Dhishkiyaon
The album begins with Dhishkiyaon in the vocals of Sonu Nigam and Ritu Pathak. This is a regular composition with a nice blend of traditional arrangements complemented by modern instruments which makes for an interesting and pleasing outing. Lyrics by Shabbir Ahmed go well with the fun theme of the movie.
Kismet (Kismat) Love Paisa Dilli Music Review: Appy Budday (Videshi)
Next in the list is a solo track Appy Budday (Videshi) in the vocals of Santokh Singh. This is a cool funky outing which begins with the sound of an electric guitar and blends English lyrics quite well, hence lending some good appeal. ‘Appy Budday (Desi)’ is another edition of the track where Santokh Singh uses entirely different arrangements and also brings in some simple and humorous lyrics. The composer/lyricist/singer adds ‘desi’ Punjabi tadka here which is as cool as the previous version.
Kismet (Kismat) Love Paisa Dilli Music Review: Jugaad
Jugaad is a duet track which has a much longer duration and arrives in the vocals of Sukhwinder Singh and Mamta Sharma. Magic of Sukhwinder’s upbeat vocals give this track a true essence of a Punjabi number with catchy ‘dhol’ and whistles that further make it all the more enjoyable. Overall it is a pleasant outing that would certainly do well in weddings and other family celebrations. Lyrics penned by Shabbir Ahmed very well match full-on ‘masti’ and comic theme of the movie. Amjad-Nadeem do quite well with this composition.
Kismet (Kismat) Love Paisa Dilli Music Review: Don’t Fuff My Mind
The album is carried ahead with Don’t Fuff My Mind in the vocals of Mika Singh and for the first time Vivek Oberoi comes behind the mike too. This one is a situational outing with a satire on Delhi’s life. Amjad-Nadeem’s designing of the song is such that it would be able to attract the masses more. The track has a ‘remix version’ as well which is actually quite similar to the original. On the whole though, Don’t Fuff My Mind just about proves to be average.
Kismet (Kismat) Love Paisa Dilli Music Review: The Last Word
When compared to some of the other leading chartbusters that are ruling the heart of the listeners today, the music of KLPD doesn’t bring as much spark. Still, since one didn’t quite lay many expectations with the music of this album, the composers have reasonably well justified the theme of the movie.
