Thank You Music Review - Thank You Movie Songs, Music Review & RatingSlated for release in April 2011, ‘Thank You’ is the directorial venture of Anees Bazmee and stars a spate of actors, including Akshay Kumar, Bobby Deol, Sonam Kapoor, Suniel Shetty, Irfan Khan, Rimi Sen and Celina Jaitley. A film that revolves around three married men who decide to opt for fun elsewhere, ‘Thank You’ promises to be hilarious and entertaining.

The film’s music album was released recently. With Pritam Chakraborty coming behind the reins for the soundtrack, one would normally expect something original and refreshing. Sadly, none of these remarks hold true as the music album of ‘Thank You’ feels ordinary and disinteresting throughout.

The album consists of a total of 9 tracks with five original compositions and 4 remixes. The songs have been penned by Ashish Pandit, Amitabh Bhattacharya and Kumaar. The singers for the individual tracks comprise of Master Saleem, Mika Singh, Neeraj Shridhar, Ritu Pathak, Richa Sharma, Sonu Nigam and Javed Ali.

The album starts with a neo age version of the 1980’s hit ‘Pyar Do Pyar Lo’ from the Firoz Khan starrer ‘Jaanbaaz’. Originally a cabaret number, the song has been given a new feel by Pritam who has also opted to change the lyrics to suit modern times.

The result is however, unimpressive, even with the presence of Mika behind the mike. Neither the music nor the lyrics manage to create an impact; and the song provides a rather dull opening to the album. Even the remix version of the song which follows afterwards does little to encourage the original.

Following ‘Pyar Do Pyar Lo’ in the album is the second track titled ‘Razia’, a contemporary number which is fast paced and should most probably be an item song in the movie. The song has been sung by Ritu Pathak and Master Saleem.

Pritam tries to experiment with this song as well with no fruitful results. The contemporary feel of the song is complemented by the techno beats that give it an extra edge. However, the lyrics and their rendition by the singers are bland and unimpressive. This in turn makes the song disinteresting alongwith the remix version which also fails to make an impression as well.

‘Full Volume’ follows, with singers Richa Sharma and Neeraj Shrishar coming behind the mike to croon the number. Following the age old formula of singing with a nasal touch, the song sounds more like a retro number with an infusion of rap and base beats in the background. However, the end result is again monotonous and umimpressive. The remix which follows soon afterwards follows in the steps of the original in sounding flat and boring.

‘My heart is beating’ comes next in the album and presents a tribute to the Bollywood songs of the ‘80s and ‘90s. Sung by Sonu Nigam (who does a reprised representation of singer Shabbir Kumar), the song blends in the aroma of the old with new techniques like contemporary beats and English lyrics.

Starting off on a funny, intriguing note, the song unfortunately, soon loses its charm and interest; coming to a dull finish at the end. The remix version of the original sounds ordinary and offers nothing new to look out for.

The last track in the album is titled ‘Pyaar Mein’ and has been sung by Neeraj Shridhar and Javed Ali who do their best to justify the song’s romantic appeal. Although moderately paced, the song falls flat due to the ordinary composition that takes away the charm of the lyrics. Another disappointment!

On the whole, ‘Thank You’ cannot be termed as even a mediocre attempt as none of the songs manage to connect with you in any way. One would probably have to wait for the videos to release to see how the songs are picturised. Maybe that would give them some leverage. However, sans the visuals, the music album of ‘Thank You’ is a major disappointment from Pritam’s end!

Rating: 1.5/5
