Krazzy 4 – Break Free Gonna Get Some Chutti features Shah Rukh Khan

So Sharukh Khan is giving the hot babes of Bollywood a run for their money. He has become the favorite item boy…so does that mean end of road for the sizzling item girls. All “item songs” done by Shah Rukh Khan have been very popular and given a boost to the opening of the related movies. Well anything featuring Shah Rukh Khan creates buzz..so everyone cashes on that. It all started with “Kaal” song, followed by the hot “Dard-e-Disco” number and now the Krazzy 4 song. The launch of Hrithik Roshan by his dad in Kaho Na Pyaar Hai saw the exit of Shah Rukh Khan from the Roshan camp..but this item song..marks a comeback to Rakesh Roshan’s movies. Shah Rukh Khan had starred in Roshan’s King Uncle, Karan Arjun and Koyla. The movie “Krazzy 4” boasts of another item song by Hithik Roshan. So its a double treat for the audience.

Here is the promotional video of the song “Break Free Gonna Get Some Chutti”:

Movie: Krazzy 4
Director: Jaideep Sen
Cast: Arshad Warsi, Irrfan Khan, Suresh Menon, Juhi Chawla and Rajpal Yadav.
Music: Rajesh Roshan.

Boondh – A Drop of Jal

After the grand success of their album “Aadat”, Jal have released their new album “Boondh – a drop of jal”. Speculations and comparisons are indispensable. It’s always tough to live up to people’s expectations. And I think Jal have come up with a good compilation.Boondh - A Drop of Jal - Album Cover

The album contains numbers which are soft, romantic and tinged with desperation for a beloved – very signature of Jal. As a band they have grown..particularly Farhaan who as a vocalist shows great improvement – listen to him in the starting few lines of Payal- “Payal ka shor macha ke/Nindiya se tun jaga ke/Tu kaheen jaaye na“. This is the songs which I was really looking forward to. I had heard the teaser of this song and was eager to listen the full version of it. And they have not at all disappointed me. A very good composition. I loved Goher’s rendition of the song “Hamein Itna Pyaar” but at times the lyrics are way too cliched..nevertheless it makes for a good listening..particularly the slower version.I know I am sucker for soft romantic mushy songs. It has got a slow version too. Of the trio of the band Jal – Goher, Farhan and Shazi..Goher deserves an applause for he is a bundle of talent – lyricist, songwriter and a vocalist – he can do it all.

Maybe at first listening you wont love the songs as much ..but the music gradually grows on you.

My verdict – Impressive and lingering.

I know I am punching two together, but with Atif also releasing his new album “Meri Kahani” I couldn’t stop myself from putting in my comments. As many would remember, that Atif Aslam and Goher Mumtaz together had started the band Jal but gradually separated ways. Atif showed great promise as a vocalist. With his album Doorie last year he wooed the crowds all over again. Now he has come up with another album, claiming it to be the actual sequel to Aadat, titled “Meri Kahani”. I don’t have much to say about this album cos it has disappointed me, except for two songs, “Meri Kahani” and “Chor Gaye”, the other songs are too noisy. It’s not that I am against Atif or for Jal, but somehow this album fails. I loved the album “Doorie”, which was panned by critics. Will have to wait and watch who goes up or who goes down or is it that there is equal takers for their music.

The only released video of the album “Boondh” is “Sajni”. The video is conceptually different and not to mention shot beautifully. Here is the video:
