Golmaal Again | Music Review
By Bryan Durham - October 10, 2017
1. Golmaal Title Track: Brijesh Shandilya and Aditi Singh Sharma bring life to an otherwise lacklustre, vapid track by S Thaman that has massy appeal, but is rather ordinary, by Bollywood measures.
2. Maine Tujhko Dekha: Said this before, will say it again. Unnecessary re-invention of Ishq’s #NeendChurayiMeri. Amaal is so much better with his original stuff. Can’t find anything good to say about this track featuring the vocals of #NeerajSridhar and Sukriti Kakar.
3. Itna Sannata Kyun Hai: The head-scratcher of the lot. This track starts out promisingly. Likeable to the point that the unmistakably familiar hook kicks in. Why did #LijoGeorge and #DJChetas feel the need to be influenced by PSY‘s #Gentleman hookline?
4. Hum Nahi Sudhrenge: Let’s take a poll. If you had to pick a song from this list whose words you can recall a week from now, whose tune you can hum easily, which one will you pick (remakes don’t count?)? This song is young, vibrant, has Armaan Malik‘s vocals featuring on it with his brother. It helps that it has an anthemic vibe, too. Kumaar, too, does a better job with the Mallik boys.
What we think: As a whole, Golmaal Again fails to hold you. It’s disappointingly bland, monotonous and too safe-leaning for its own good. And when one track does the heavy lifting for you, will you really go pick up the album?>
