Now, this is a film which has made a surprise appearance actually. With an unconventional combination of Prabhu Dheva, Sonu Sood and Tamannaah Bhatia, one looks forward to what does the film in store. Ditto for the music, which actually has as many as seven unique tracks with different composers and lyricists making a contribution.
Yesteryear chartbuster 'Rail Gaddi' is recreated by Gurinder Seagal and the final results are actually quite entertaining, what with Shabbir Ahmed bringing in new lyrics for this largely foot tapping number. Navraj Hans is powerful with his vocals, Swati Sharrma does well with her accompanying vocals and Lil Golu's rap portion is impressive too, hence resulting in a good outing all over again. The team has actually made a good effort to bring back the nostalgia all over again.
The album sees a good high immediately after, what with Sajid-Wajid bringing on 'Chal Maar'. The song has the kind of rhythm that could have just walked into a Salman Khan film. In fact, one wonders why the composer duo was not tempted to actually save this one for Dabangg 3 as the song would have turned out to be an instant chartbuster there. That said, with Prabhu Dheva in there, this Irfan Kamal song is set to be good fun on screen and Wajid does well as a singer too to bring on just the kind of energy that was needed for a 'masala' song like this.
The album scores a hat-trick with the title track 'Tutak Tutak Tutiya' coming in next. Yet another recreation of a chartbuster song from the past, this Raaj Ashoo composed track is an instant hit all over again, courtesy its rustic flavour combined with intoxicating rhythm and contemporary lyrics added by Shabbir Ahmed to the original words penned by Malkit Singh. Meanwhile, Malkit Singh pairs up with Kanika Kapoor behind the mike to create magic all over again and surprisingly, Sonu Sood too chips in and does a rather good job as a singer. This one can well be expected to play in clubs for the current generation too.
Dance music on a Punjabi base to it continues with 'Love The Way You Dance' which has been written and composed by MusicMG. A Punjabi-English fusion track rendered by Jazzy B, this is yet another outing designed for a club outing and the overall team behind the music doesn't disappoint. Meanwhile, Sonu Sood is back as a rapper and this time around he is even better than how he was in the title song. He also doesn't forget bringing his hometown Moga as a part of the lyrics and that is a sweet touch actually. An all-men outing, it also has Millind Gaba chipping in as the singer.
After four dance numbers in a row, it is time to get sober with Vishal Mishra composed 'Chalte Chalte'. Written by Manoj Yadav, this one is a poetic outing with Arijit Singh taking charge to go all romantic. While it is a decent outing, somehow the kind of long lasting appeal that one expects from a romantic number is missing in. Yes, there is a bit of experimentation in there though with the song taking a Western route.
It is back to fun and 'dhamaal' though as Sajid-Wajid return with 'Suku Suku'. This one has a 80s/90s appeal to it and seems to have been designed primarily for the South audience. In fact, one hears compositions like these pretty often in South films and Danish Sabri's lyrics do bring in such references as well. Shivaranjani Singh sings as per the demand of the situation and one can expect this one to act as good filler, both from audio as well as visual appeal perspective.
After 'Chalte Chalte', Vishal Mishra returns with 'Ranga Re' and this one has quintessential romantic music from the world of Tamil and Telugu films written all over it, right from the time the opening notes are hit. This is justified too, considering the fact that Tamannaah Bhatia has been quite popular down South and Shreya Ghoshal too modulates her vocals accordingly to sing as per the poetic mood set by Pranav Vatsa.
The music of Tutak Tutak Tutiya throws a pleasant surprise as it amalgamates dance music well with some romantic tunes and a situational song thrown in as well. Even though there are as many as seven songs in there, these should fit in well into the film's narrative and make it largely entertaining.
