MUSIC REVIEW OF DO KNOT DISTURBEye TV India Bureau
Vashu Bhagnani as producer and David Dhawan as director of 'Do Knot Disturb' led the audience to believe that their upcoming movie will be an extraordinary one. So also its huge cast of Sushmita Sen and Lara Dutta among females, and Govinda and Riteish Deshmukh among the males, plus Sameer as lyricist and Nadeem-Shravan as music directors, raised their expectations to the extent that the movie might turn into a chartbuster. With these high hopes, the album begins with Nadeem Shravan going retro as Dev Anand's evergreen super hit number, ''Leke Pehla Pehla Pyaar'' from the movie titled 'CID' , is redone. This redone number carries a lot of arranged rhythm and feminine chorals in the form of ''Zulfaen Khol Khal Ke''. The lead pair of Sonu Niigaam and Anuradha Sriram sings this. Moreover, its lyrics by none other than Sameer do make it a flirtatious number.
Another number, ''Dont Ever Leave Me'', carries the burden of techno and electronic beats and synthesized rhythm. So, the fans of the composer duo are disappointed; they were looking forward for something fresh in their number. On the other hand, the audience is happy with the use of both English and Hindi. Shaan and Shreya render the songs like professionals.
Then follows another number, 'Mere Naal'. This number proves beyond doubt that K.K and Shreya can be successful in the other genre of music - Bhangra. Here, Shreya's voice modulates amazingly and so is KK's , who is simply bombastic in this number with the back up of Jigar Saraiya and Nikita Kanwar lending their vocals. No wonder if this number catches the ears of the two opposite categories. The use of Indian instruments like dhol, ektara, 'sarangi/bansuri' and their effective blending with the catchy rhythm has helped the song to attract the audience . Lara, Govinda and Ritesh gyrate to its infectious rhythm.
Significantly, Nadeem-Shravan's 'Bebo...' excels Anu Malik's ''Bebo'' of 'Kambakht Ishq' The 'Baari barsi khatan gayasi, Khat ke le andi Bebo is hilarious indeed. This number's picturisation on Lara and Ritesh is an added attraction.
Pritam's lucky charm Neeraj Shridhar is back once again, this time for the composer duo with another highly rhythmic number, ''Beautiful Woman'' and giving him company is the highly versatile Sowmya Raoh! The number is more in the line of Sajid -Wajid's dance tracks from David-Govinda's last super hit 'Partner'. Even the khichdi number like ''Kisi Disco Mein Jayein'' of 'Bade Miya Chhote 'Miyan' has come out excellently well because of Sowmya's energetic singing. Most of all, the movie's title song.
"Do Knot Disturb" goes the A.R. Rahman way in 'Paathshala'. This is a mix of melody, rap and singing . Anushka's chorus provides us the comic flavor of the movie with the lyrics coming of age. The USP of this album consists in its songs which are fresh even though their composers have been away for quite some time. But their comeback is good inasmuch as they have composed the music for the Vashu-David team's film. We wonder if they would have been successful if they had composed the songs on their own instinct.
So, music director Shravan rightly says, '' Do Knot Disturb" music has something for everybody. The six songs encapsulate different moods and as always, have a variety of melodies.'' We agree with him as far as their three numbers - ''Bebo'', ''Mere Naal'' and ''Beautiful Woman'' are concerned. The audience will definitely be humming them. These very songs make the music album worth more than its buying price. Hopefully, the movie release will also help in boosting its sale.
