Bang Bang Music Review

The official remake of Tom Cruise’s ‘Knight and Day’, ‘Bang Bang’, directed by Sidharth Anand, has already managed to create a storm across the nation with its theatrical teaser. Featuring inarguably the best looking on screen pair of Hrithik Roshan and Katrina Kaif, ‘Bang Bang’ boasts of high-octane action sequences and foot tapping music.

Well, in his fairly long career, it might sound surprising that it is for the first time that the music director duo of Vishal-Shekhar are composing tunes for a Hrithik Roshan film.

Will a massive film like Bang Bang be able to extract the best out of Vishal-Shekhar who have been on a creative downslide recently? Read on to find out.

Tu Meri: The Bang Bang music album kicks off with ‘Tu Meri’ sung and written by Vishal Dadlani himself. The song starts off as a slow romantic number but later foot tapping beats converts it into a peppy dance number. The western fusion is all over this song and the lyrics are just right to have you rocking and tapping your feet. (3.5/5)

Meherbaan: Vishal-Shekhar duo possess this uncanny art of churning out brilliant romantic melodies every now and then. ‘Meherbaan’ is in the league of their own greats like ‘Khuda Jaane’, ‘Hey Shona’ and ‘Falak Tak’ to name a few. Ash King has provided the male vocals and it’s nice to see him getting a big song after Bodyguard’s ‘I Love You’. He is ably supported by Shilpa Rao and Shekhar. Anvita scores with memorable lyrics. (4/5)

Bang Bang: The title song is sung by Benny Dayal who is on a career high with songs like ‘Badtameez Dil’, ‘Besharmi Ki Height’ and ‘Locha-e-ulfat’ behind him. This track again sounds like an attempt to recreate western classics of yesteryears. Neeti Mohan is good as female voice. Last minute or so of the song is just music, designed to showcase the extraordinary dancing skills of Hrithik Roshan. (3/5)

Uff: Harshdeep Kaur of ‘Jugni’ and ‘Heer’ fame gets to sing the next track ‘Uff’ with Benny Dayal again providing male vocals. Though the song is not her regular Punjabi flavoured track, she does well. Composition gives a feel that Vishal-Shekhar are trying too much with instruments and musical arrangements. Lyrics are effective but overall audio is average. (2.5/5)

The unplugged version of ‘Meherbaan’ is equally mesmerising to the ears. Without a doubt, it’s the best composition of the album.

Rating: ★★★☆☆

‘Bang Bang’ doesn’t have extraordinary music or classic evergreen chartbusters. Having said that, the music album has songs that blend perfectly with the genre of the film. It will be a delight to watch Hrithik-Katrina performing to the Bang Bang songs on the big screen.

Get ready to Bang Bang this Gandhi Jayanti.

  • 99% of sensible people would agree that BangBang music is better than HNY tracks.
    Seriously? Above 3 stars for all songs of HNY except 1 and 2.5 for uff?
    My rating:
    Bang Bang: 3.25/5
    HNY: 2.75/5

  • All songs r crap,@indicine u gave meherban 4 ha ha this is enough to prove which class nd which song do u like?haiders album is far better than this nonesense bang bang.

  • “UFF”is the best track of Bang Bang album. I’m listening this song from tuesday. “Kabira” fame Harshdeep Kaur is a fantastic singer.

  • INDIAWAALE-3

    tu meri-3.5

    all songs of bb are below average.only meherban-3.

    so overall rating if this album must be 2-2.5.3 is a joke. this is what the genuine review is.

    (indicine is a fan of Hrithik)

    @indicine: Now I understood how difficult it is, to run a Bollywood discussion website in our country ;-)

  • Coming to the article, nothing is so special in Bang Bang music to give it 3.5 or 4. It’s just an another album of the year with few melodies. I will go with 2.75-3/5 for Bang Bang.

  • Uff deserved atleast 3!!!

    And the album deserved 3.5 stars…

    Maybe indicine have averted a war between SRK and HR fans by giving both the albums,3 stars!!

  • @nipun its your opinion beacouse you are Hrithik fan . acording to me above average album like hny . and everyone knows that lovely is better than uff ! bb 3/5 hny 3.5/5

  • Most of the songs of HNY are not worth listening even…Only songs that stand out are indiawaale,manwa lage…

  • @indicine
    But the average of the ratings 2.5+3+3.5+4 comes as 3.25!!!
    But u gave 3 stars,u could have rounded it of to 3.5 also…

  • i don’t know why people get personal on opinion , maybe i don’t understand that part of being a fan of an actor.Maybe y’all should show love for the actor whom you love rather than defaming another !! To an extent its fun .But most of them go on their mom and sister !! peace haha

  • Bang bang have just 4track with no chatbuster, hr fans says bang bang music is better than hny but the truth just 2weeks left for bang bang n still no songs comes top5 in ormax media n lets wait for 1 or 2more weeks hny music will be topping charts.

  • @indicine: we are not bringing srk here…but since u posted HNY music review few days ago,so don’t u think the comparison is inevitable!!!

  • good rating initially i ddint like tu meri but after listen 3-4 times now i like the song meharbaan is good 3/5 from me but i didnt feel any hr’s music album good like knph. for me knph 5/5.

  • @arjun kapoor
    Keep ur crappy ratings to urself,no need of posting them!!

    Just a 55sec teaser of Bang bang is released till now and you know about its story as u have given it 8 in terms of story revealed..??

  • @RomanceNY, *uck your Ormax Media. Go to Gaana.com Top 20. Meherbaan is at No 2, Tu Meri at No 4, Manwa Lage is at No 9.

    Same stop with iTunes Top 10 also. Bang Bang is ahead.

    So I request you to kindly STFU

  • indicine gives accurate rating about bang bang.
    from me it deserves 3/5. but it’s all about action pack movie. songs will not affect this movie. so be cool
    ready for bang bang.
