Ghanchakkar – Music Review (Bollywood Soundtrack)


You can listen to the soundtrack here.

Despite the strong repeat feel that it evokes (Motorwaada in particular for me), Oye Ghanchakkar Babu does make for an addictive piece, courtesy some splendid arrangement elements from composer Amit Trivedi (who also sings the song assisted by a fun chorus) and Amitabh Bhattacharya’s lines. Love that sax! And without all those things, the remix isn’t even half as fun. The techno qawwali mashup is quite neatly nailed in Allah Meherbaan riding on Divya Kumar’s spotless vocals. But for Altaf Raja’s return to Bollywood playback and an engaging brass section, Jholu Ram offers very little else.  Best of the soundtrack is Lazy Lad, a happy fun song that sees some fantastic use of banjo in an otherwise folk-dominated arrangement. Richa Sharma totally owns the rendition of Amitabh’s wacky lyrics.

Ghanchakkar. Not the kind of musical epicness that the Amit Trivedi-Raj Kumar Gupta team is used to delivering, but one that seems in line with the fun ride the movie promises to be.

Music Aloud Rating: 7.5/10

Top Recos: Lazy Lad, Oye Ghanchakkar Babu, Allah Meherbaan
