Music Review: O Teri is a decent album

March 15, 2014 16:07 IST

A scene from O TeriThere are many memorable songs in O Teri, feels Joginder Tuteja.

One expects the music of O Teri to be fun since the film looks quite youthful.

First-time composer G J Singh gets good support from lyricist Kumaar.

New entrant Roshni Baptist is seductive in the club track Butt Patlo. The song has the kind of sound that one associates with Pritam and Vishal-Shekhar.

In that aspect, G J Singh doesn't disappoint with Jaspreet Jasz behind the mike. The singer does a good job in projecting the kind of exuberance that's expected with such a film.

However, one does wonder about this new-found fascination of butt in Bollywood. From Tooh (Gori Tere Pyaar Mein) to 'Butt' which is exclaimed with the sound of 'round round.'

G J Singh brings a contemporary sound with Teri Akhan Vich. He is also the singer here with Jaspreet Jasz, and together they bring a high energy to this song.

Neeti Mohan does well in her brief appearance in the song. Though not really a chartbuster, this number is engrossing enough.

Iulia Vantur, who was once said to be Salman Khan's girlfriend, makes her debut as a singer and performer in Ummbakkum. She does a good job.

Mika Singh and Jaspreet Jasz try to pep up this number but it’s just passable. One usually expects a Mika number to be the highlight of the album but Umbakkam sounds like an extension of Butt Patolo, and the remix version isn’t much better.

The last track, Phollo Karta, appears to be a misfit. Guest composer Hard Kaur comes in for this Manish J Tipu written and sung number which is desi in presentation.

It’s about the pros and cons of social networking. An average number, its music video may help it cover some distance, as was the case in Pulkit Samrat's last film Fukrey where innovative videos of similar songs helped the music to reach the masses.

O Teri is a decent album but it doesn't have many memorable songs. It makes for short and snappy listening
