Rating: 3/5 Stars (Three stars)
Music Director/s: Krsna Solo, Tanishk-Vayu
After an entertaining Tanu Weds Manu, the second installment Tanu Weds Manu Returns starring R. Madhavan and Kangana Ranaut is all set to release this week. The film’s music has been composed by mixed artists which includes Tanishk & Vayu, Krsna Solo. While the prequel had some popular chartbusters, find out if the new film too manages to do the same.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns Music Review – Banno
There is always that one song in the soundtrack of a film which becomes an instant hit and especially after being included in the trailer. Banno is that number for Tanu Weds Manu Returns. The energetic number sung by Brijesh Shandllya, Swati Sharma is so peppy that you cannot stop yourself from moving with it. The lyrics too are quirky with ‘Swagger’ and ‘Sexy’ being associated with ‘Banno‘ which means a bride making it even more interesting. Just like Queen‘s London Thumakda caught on with the masses, Banno too will do the same. A perfect song for the wedding season this year.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns Music Review – Mat Ja Re
Ankit Tiwari has become the voice of sad songs. His new song Mat Ja Re is quite a typical song. Even though the composition is quite different compared to Tiwari’s usual choices, it does not really entertain you. Mat Ja Re is not a number that you would like to listen to more than once or twice.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns Music Review – Ghani Bawri
The plus point for Ghani Bawri is that the song has a lively music and a strong lead voice. Jyoti Noora’s vocals give this song the right amount of brightness. Lyrically too, the song is rich as it does form as a summary to the story and it will be interesting to watch it in the film. The song will not enjoy much longevity but as long as the film is in the limelight, it will be a popular number. Ghani Bawri also has a remix number which is a little mix of techno beats with the original. Sadly, the techno kills the original score as it lacks the rustic flavor of the song.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns Music Review – Old School Girl
This song comes as a shock to you in an album that is full on Desi. Old School Girl has jazz beats and the lyrics are so funny that it will be more interesting to see what’s in the video. It has been sung by Anmol Malik and while she embraces the jazz feel well, the song is not exactly impressive. There is also Haryanvi version to it which does not blend well with the musical arrangements. This song does not have any significance in the album but it may be important in the film.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns Music Review – Move On
This is one of the most disappointing songs from the album. The starting tune of ‘Move On‘ is exactly like Kill Dil‘s ‘Bol Beliya‘ and I am surprised how Sunidhi Chauhan had no problems singing a song that seems like a blatant copy of her other song. Once you figure out the similarity in the beginning of the song itself, it is difficult to listen to it completely since you lose interest. So unless you liked Bol Beliya, you will not like this number.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns Music Review – Hogaya Hai Pyaar
The first installment of Tanu Weds Manu had a beautiful composition called ‘Yun Hi’ by Mohit Chauhan and in this film they try to create a similar song as ‘Hogaya Hai Pyaar‘. Dev Negi sings it with great finesse. It is soulful but reminiscent of the earlier one.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns Music Review – O Saathi Mere
Sonu Nigam returns after long as he sings ‘O Saathi Mere‘ in the film. The song is a a slow number and it is a treat to listen to Nigam who makes it sound even more beautiful. The musical arrangements are similar to ‘Chaandaniya‘ of Rowdy Rathore but both the songs have their own flavor. It does come off as heartfelt but certainly is not the best song from the album.
Tanu Weds Manu Returns Music Review – The Last Word
Tanu Weds Manu Returns album is not a perfect one but has its highs and lows. The best songs from the album are ‘Banno‘, ‘Ghani Bawri‘ and ‘Hogaya Hai Pyaar‘. Composed by Tanishk & Vayu, Krsna Solo, the album is high on the ‘Desi’ quotient and partly enjoyable. The album could have been kept short with a handful of tracks, minus the remixes. I am going with a 3/5 for this album.
