One expected the music of Happy Ending to be fun, but then this one falls flat like most of the recent Sachin-Jigar movies.
Sachin-Jigar have not really had a great year and one was expecting Happy Ending to give them the much required boost but looks like this one too misses the point as non of the songs are worth it.
G Phaad Ke is an energetic dance number and is a heady mix of Punjabi Pop and EDM beats topped with a catchy hook making it the perfect track for the dance floor. However the vocals of Divya Kumar and Shefali Alvares makes the song one of the most disappointing ones in the album.
Paaji Tussi tries to push the envelope when it comes to it’s lyrics but then they sond very below the belt and cheap. The composition is very run of mill and Sachin-Jigar’s tune is bad. This one has been rendered by Divya Kumar and composer Jigar Saraiya himself. Since the song is more of a parody, it cannot be expected to have a long shelf life, therefore we suggest you just let this one be.
Jaise Mera Tu sung by Arijit Singh and Priya Saraiya is by far the best track of Happy Ending. Sachin-Jigar have managed to belt out a good composition with this one as this romantic song is hummable. Priya Saraiya is the start of this track as she mesmerizes us with her entrancing vocals.
Mileya Milaya has been rendered by Jigar, Priya Saraiya and Rekha Bhardwaj; something that’s unique to hear but then with such great talent coming together one expected the composition also to been that strong; which in this case fails as the vocals overshadow the composition.
With a title like Khamma Ghani one expects a Rajsthani folk number but that is not the case in this song sung by Papon. The use of the words seems a bit out of place since neither the setting nor the rest of the song have any hint of Rajasthani influence. Maybe lyricist Amitabh Bhattacharya used this phrase to make the song sound more exotic. If that was indeed the case then the experiment seems to have worked with the song sounding absolutely gorgeous.
Haseena Tu Kameena Main is the final track of this album and also its weakest link. Guess the composers saved the worst for the last. The hook initially sounds quite catchy but it’s constant repetition through the song makes it a bit annoying after a point. Siddharth Basru and Shalmali Kholgade have song the song but the we could have done without this one for sure.
To sum up, Sachin-Jigar have not had a great 2014 and with the soundtrack of Happy Ending looks like this year for them would end on a disappointing note.
Happy Ending also stars Ileana D’Cruz, Kalki Koechlin and Govinda along with Saif Ali Khan and is set for a November 21, 2014 release.
Happy Ending boasts of Saif Ali Khan, directors Raj Nidimoru and Krishna D.K. along with music composers Sachin-Jigar. One expected the music of Ha...0.5
