4 Very Good

Singh Is Kinng

Well I bought the cd today and heres what I thought about the album...

There are 6 original sonngs and 6 remixes..

1.Singh is Kinng: The much hyped Snoop Dogg version is snazzy mix of rap with dhol and bhangra..Its instantly catchy and makes you go 'Singh is Kinng' 'Singh is Kinng' all through..Its quite enjoyable and mainly sung by RDB which I thought was good but with Snoop at helm I would have prefered a entire Snoop version..Surprise surprise Akki tests his vocal cords too and to good effect I should say..Overall a terrific beginning and will go places if followed by a better video...

2.Bas Ek Kinng: This song has been on air for 2 weeks and has captured the audience all over..But I feel its an average track and sung by even poor singers(Mika,Hard Kaur,Neeraj Shridhar et al). Though its catchy I expected a lot more..It is rap meets bhangra again and its good while it lasts...But the remix version is terrific and has chartbuster written all over it..I still feel the remix version should have been promoted more...

3.Jee Karda: A hardcore Punjabi bhangra song sung Labh Janjua..It sounds good with english paraphrases intermixed but didnt appeal much to me...Again its remix version sounds far better..

4.Bhootni ke: Yeah thats the song's title..Its again a hardcore Punjabi bhangra song except that only its a marriage song..Daler Mehndi stretches his vocal cords but impresses a little..Remix has more potential..

5. Talli Hua: Another punjabi bhangra track follows..Can you believe it...But dont worry this is a much better sounding folk cum rock mix and a perfect suit to disco players...Neeraj Sridhar is slowly becoming voice of Akshay Kumar..Again its remix version is way better...

6.Tere ore: As its said saving best for the last the best song of the album comesin the end..The slow romantic soothing folkish love ballad sung by Shreya Ghosal and Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is unarguably the best track in respect of composition and effect..

Overall I expected a lot from the soundtrack of Singh is Kinng especially wih Pritam at helm and he is on a roll after Race and Jannat..Alas this turns out to be a good fare but nothing pathbreaking.It just gives your ears a mouthfull and all that stays is style but not substance..A few songs Tere Ore, Singh is Kinng and Bas Ek Kinng are good while the rest are hardcore Punjabi songs which will appeall to a section of audience..
