Now this is what one calls a perfect project in the making.
Salman Khan, Anees Bazmee, Pritam, Bhushan Kumar and that
promise of an out and out entertainer - one strongly
believes that the music of Ready can't really go
wrong. There are movies that are termed as popcorn
entertainers; now here is a soundtrack which one believes
would be the kind that would be best enjoyed when being a
little high. Though four different lyricists - Amitabh
Bhattacharya, Neelesh Misra, Ashish Pandit and Kumaar - are
roped in for a song apiece with Devi Sri Prasad also
chipping in as a guest composer, you look forward to whether
Ready indeed has enough 'dum' in it to be the biggest
commercial soundtrack of the year so far..
Pritam lends a
fantastic start to Ready with 'Character Dheela'
and what actually catches your instant attention is the fact
that despite this being a Salman Khan entertainer, the song has
the trademark sound that the composer is known for lending to
his songs. If one has liked the kind of tunes that Pritam has
composed for Shahid in films like Kismat Konnection, Jab We
Met and Badmaash Company, he is bound to totally lap
up 'Character Dheela' due to the Salman element being
cleverly integrated by Amitabh Bhattacharya through his smart
lyrics (don't miss that reference to 'Munni' and 'Sheila').
Going totally by Salman's
on/off screen image which in any case is hardly different these
days, 'Character Dheela' by Neeraj Shridhar and Amrita
Kak is a lot of fun for those four minutes that it plays. An
interesting choreography with Zarine Khan exuding oomph (a
distinct shift from her Veer image) is another good reason that
further consolidates the fact that 'Character Dheela'
would entice a lot of 'seetis' and 'taalis' when it plays on
screen. A chartbuster all the way that also arrives in a 'remix'
and accentuates the fun.
What follows next is the kind of romantic number that Salman had
to his name in dozens during the 90s. Written by Neelesh Misra,
'Humko Pyar Hua' also has short English portions
in between the 'antra' and has KK going subtle in his rendition
with Tulsi Kumar giving him good support. Though the original
tune as well as it's remix is fine and doesn't give any reason
to complain, it is nowhere close to the kind that Salman has
enjoyed in Veer (Surili Ankhiyon Wali) and
Dabangg (Tere Mast Mast Nain). At the end of it all,
'Humko Pyar Hua' is one harmless number that will find
some popularity going for it only after the film turns out to be
What is definitely going to be popular though in the very first
go is 'Dhinka Chika' which is all set to be the
biggest chartbuster of the first half of 2011 at the least. A
re-done version of Telugu number 'Ringa Ringa' (Arya 2)
with the original composer Devi Sri Prasad being roped in here,
'Dhinka Chika' (also arriving again in the 'remix
version') has Mika Singh and Amrita Kak bringing on the kind of
attitude that was pretty much required for the song of this
genre. Ashish Pandit's lyrics are as 'chalu' as it gets and
reminds one of the songs that were made for Mithun Chakravorty,
Jeetendra and Govinda during the 80s. Expect frenzy in theaters,
especially single screens, when the song plays on screen.
Pritam returns on the scene with a quintessential North Indian
'shaadi byaah' celebration track 'Meri Ada Bhi'
that starts off with the folk rendition of much heard 'Laung
Gawacha'. A rhythmic track that surprisingly has Rahat Fateh
Ali Khan at the helm of affairs (since he is known more for his
soulful melodies rather than dance numbers), 'Meri Ada Bhi'
is what one terms as the kind of number which has been made for
family audience. Tulsi Kumar too is pretty much in elements here
for this song that at places does tend to veer towards 'U and
I' (Pritam's composition from De Dana Dan at places)
courtesy the way Rahat approaches it before the composer manages
to pull it all back.
Any regrets from Ready? Only one which is - 'it finishes
off too soon'. From an album of this stature one expected at
least a couple of more songs to make it a wholesome affair.
However, with only four songs in the album, one longs to lay
hands on a lot more. Nonetheless, from what is made available,
there are good enough reasons to celebrate with 'Dhinka Chika'
and 'Character Dheela' all set to be not just huge hits
musically but also turn out to be massive crowd pullers. On the
other hand 'Meri Ada Bhi' ends up adding good variety to
the album with 'Humko Pyar Hua' carrying a potential to
gather steam once the film releases. Once on shelves, Ready
should be a sell-out due to all around craze amongst audience to
check out what the music is all about. However, the momentum is
only going to continue after the film hits the screens.
