Sing a song of six pence
With a name like Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya and an ensemble cast of Govinda, Juhi Chawla, Tabu and Chandrachur Singh known for their comic capers, this album does justice to its expectations.
Without dwelling too much on the intricacies of making good music, Himesh Reshamiya (Pyar Kiya Toh Darna Kya, Kahin Pyaar Na Ho Jaye) has composed entertaining music.
The lyrics complement the tunes and the final product befits a typical Govinda starrer.
The album begins with Aayee hai Diwali sung by Udit Narayan, Kumar Sanu, Shaan, Alka Yagnik, Sneha Pant and Ketki Dave. Now thatís one singer too many.
The song has a major Daksha-Junagadh hangover with ara ra ra being ranted over and over again. But overall, the song is quite pleasant.
Ta thaiya ta thaiya is up next. A whole bunch of singers -- Preety, Pinky, Sunidhi Chauhan and Shaan -- perform this ditty with little scope. What with Ta thaiya ta tahiya being sung in every variation for the first few minutes.
Next on the list comes Chori chori tera chalna sung by Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, which is by far the most romantic song in the album.
But with lyrics like tera chalna item hai, tera rukna item hai, one has second thoughts.
The title song is a clear winner by a long shot, thanks to its hilarious lyrics, ie, if you are a fan of the slapstick variety. Lyricist Sudhakar Sharma is successful in conveying the essence of the film in this particular track.
The remaining two songs are strictly regular.
Style nasha tera sung by Babul Supriyo, Udit Narayan and Sunidhi Chauhan sounds a lot like Chal jhooti from Jis Desh Mein Ganga Rehta Hai.
Sajaniya re by Babul Supriyo and Sunidhi Chauhan sounds like one of those disco dandiya songs blaring from loud speakers during Navratri.
Overall, the music is likeable. Guaranteed to score with the masses, Aamdani Atthanni Kharcha Rupaiya is definately worth its while for all the die hard Govinda fans.
