Bolo Raam Review {1.5/5} & Review Rating


One has nil expectations from the music of Bolo Raam, primarily because the film's title is truly offbeat, there is absolutely no clue around what the film is all about, the star cast is entirely new while the buzz is completely absent. Since the film's genre (murder mystery) doesn't quite indicate much scope of music, one doesn't get any excited about listening to what Bolo Raam has to offer. The only silver lining is composer Sachin Gupta, who has earlier made widely popular 'Doorie' (with Atif Aslam), due to which one still is hopeful of something decent in the offering. Sajan Agrawal and Ajay Jhingran write for this album which includes just three songs.


Opening song 'Tere Ishq Mein' has a rather different start to it since the 'mukhda' belongs to the kind which could well have been an 'antara' in a regular song. There is a classical base to this track which basically becomes catchy only at the point where Sunidhi goes on to croon the catch phrase 'Tere Ishq Mein Kya Kya... '. Other than this part of the song, there isn't much that really impresses in this fusion track with Sufi undertone to it. Written by Sajan Agrawal, 'Tere Ishq Mein' later arrives in a 'remix' version with Mahinder Singh Mahi beginning the track. This time around the results are far more impressive as there is further authenticity lent to the song which (rightly) begins with the sound of 'Tere Ishq Mein' Kya Kya... '.

Theme track 'Maa Tere Jaisa' comes next and is expected to arrive at numerous junctures in the film's narrative as a part of the background score. Sukhwinder Singh goes solo for this Sajan Agrawal written theme track which is about a young man praising his mom and hailing her as the best in the entire world. There is a lounge feeling to 'Maa Tere Jaisa' which is different from the 80s style overtly melodramatic songs that carried the same theme. Nevertheless, the song (which also arrives in a - surprise surprise - 'remix version') is strictly situational and doesn't quite qualify as the one that would make you form a beeline at the music stores.

Monali Thakur and Soham come together for the love song 'Do Dil Hai Janwa' which has a club setting to it. A track that has the maximum commercial appeal to it (when compared to the other two tracks), it has surprisingly not been promoted at all! No, it isn't any great shakes and is actually one of the many dozen tracks belonging to this genre that have been heard before. However, given the fact that it at least is conventional and could have been a quick way to attract one's attention towards the film, non-promotion of Ajay Jhingran written 'Do Dil Hai Janwa' so far is surprising.


Bolo Raam was never meant to be a musical and that reflects in the way this album eventually turns out to be. The music isn't bad but doesn't have anything that stands out enough to make a huge impression. No buzz around the music will further have a telling on the album sales.
