Punjabiyaan Di Battery – Mere Dad Ki Maruti Music Review
The album kicks off with a loud peppy dhol with Mika taking charge and Yo Yo Honey Singh giving good support. The track in picture is Punjabiyaan Di Battery which is an energetic cool outing that will make you tap your feet and lighten up your mood. The arrangements used by the composer Sachin Gupta along with Kumaar’s lyrics are extremely vibrant, lively and aptly support the Punjabi theme throughout.
Main Senti Hoon – Mere Dad Ki Maruti Music Review
A duet track Main Senti Hoon takes the album ahead, with vocalists Jaspreet Jasz and Shalmali Kholgade sharing the mike. This is a crazy number with lighter musical arrangements and simple lyrics that altogether turns out to be a below average number by Sachin. The track does not leave an appealing flavour, though it may add up a comical and humorous mood of the narrative.
Haaay – Mere Dad Ki Maruti Music Review
Next in the list is Haaay, another Punjabi composition which is of a relatively shorter duration with vocals backed by Panjabi MC and Manake. The track turns out to be a typical Punjabi hip hop rap with a cocktail of English and Punjabi lyrics that carries a little charm to it and appears to be an overdose of Punjabi rap template.
Hip Hip Huraah – Mere Dad Ki Maruti Music Review
Hip Hip Huraah is a solo track in the vocals of Sonu Kakkar and arrives with a mix of an eclectic mix of high beats. This is a fun flicked track that portrays the dhamaal and masti of a Punjabi celebration. The composition is spiced with some interesting lyrics that are much better than the previous compositions.
Mere Dad Ki Maruti Title Song – Mere Dad Ki Maruti Music Review
Finally comes the title track Mere Dad Ki Maruti by Punjabi singer and actor Diljit Dosanjh. This one is another hilarious rendition of relatively longer duration that adds up a lot of witty lure and is light on ears. The track would certainly amuse you with traditional folk arrangements that have been used in the beginning of the track but overall falls way short of being termed as a must-cherish dish.
Mere Dad Ka Mash Up – Mere Dad Ki Maruti Music Review
The album concludes with Mere Dad Ka Mash Up that can also be described as a typical DJ outing made exclusively for weddings and similar occasions.
The Last Word – Mere Dad Ki Maruti Music Review
Overall ‘Mere Dad Ki Maruti’ turns out to be a below average album with the track ‘Punjabiyaan Di Battery’ and to some extent ‘Hip Hip Huraah’ carrying some bit of potential.
