Boss - Music Review

14-09-2013

The Anthony D'Souza-starrer Boss starring Akshay Kumar created quite a buzz with its action-packed trailer. Read on to know if the music album matches up.

The first song in the album is Boss, the title track, sung by Meet Bros Anjjan (also the composers) and Yo Yo Honey Singh. The dominant strains used have been heard in the teaser and trailer before. And somehow, it sounds like the title track of Blue (Anthony D'Souza's previous film) in a way. It's a number that will make a lot of people feel like a boss.

The next number is Hum Na Tode, sung by Vishal Dadlani and composed by PA Deepak. It is a spin on the popular Tamil track Apdi Pode Pode. And it works! It is an exceedingly energetic track. There's no missing Akshay telling the musicians to build up on the symphony.

Boss - Music Review

This is followed by Pitah Se Hai Naam Tera, sung by Sonu Nigam, Meet Bros Anjjan (also the composers) and backed by Sanjay Mishra's alaaps. It is good to hear Sonu after so long with his qawaali track. It's a pretty sappy number that does not go with the mood of the album, but on its own, for a Father's Day occasion, this might just be the song that plays in the neighbourhood.

The much-publicised Party All Night (Sonakshi Sinha has a guest appearance in the song) is next on, rendered and composed by Yo Yo Honey Singh. If the title wasn't hint enough, the song is a disco number, which has a catchy chorus. It saves the song from getting bland by leaping in at the right time.

Har Kisi Ko, sung by Nikhil D'Souza and composed by Chirantan Bhatt. It is derived from the number of the same name from the film Jaanbaaz, but sounds quite different in comparison. It is a lacklustre number.

There's also the Boss Entry Theme, sung by Meet Bros Anjjan (also the composers), Sonu Kakkar and Khushboo Grewal. The number was definitely written with some grand hero entry in mind. Another energetic number but not one that sweeps you with it, as it just isn't that engrossing.

There is another rendition of Har Kisi Ko, sung by Arijeet Singh and Neeti Mohan. It's composed by Chirantan Bhatt. It is not much different from the Nikhil D'Souza-sung number. This means, it is a song that is just as dull.

Films of India gives the Boss album two stars because it has its moments, but not enough to make for a truly memorable composition.
