‘Kya Super Kool Hain Hum’ has fun and young adult humour written all over it. The trailers make the fun and the new dimension of adult comedy in Bollywood very clear. The new face of Bolaand extrovert in Bollywood is difficult to digest at times for some, but as the Indian youth come out of the box movies catering to this audience are to become the new trend.
Director Sachin Yardi is back with part deux of his then soft comedy ‘Kyaa Kool Hain Hum�۪ (2005) this summer with the usual lead stars under Ekta Kapoor’s banner. The music of his 2005 venture was average so one would expect Yardi to go the extra mile this time. He does go the extra step by hiring a host of music directors and lyricists for this 7 song album to deliver fitting music for this in-your-face comedy.
Starting off with the silly and clich̩d phrase Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya in the voice of multi-talented Vishal Dadlani is an extremely catchy tune with a twist that is bound to get stuck in ones head. Try and avoid bobbing with this tune and one will find it very difficult thanks to the simple composition of a joint venture between Sachin & Jigar and lyricist Mayur Puri. Their last project ��Tere Naal Love Ho Gaya�۪ (2012) gained some critical acclaim for their work and their talent to deliver a fun track is clearly evident in Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya. Do pay special attention to the lyrics to really enjoy this song.
Shirt Da Button in the voice of Sonu Nigam is perhaps the best song on this soundtrack. The extremely romantic and soulful beauty of this song has the typical musical touch of the Meet Bros that one always loves. It has the international feel to it with Scottish pipes that will make this song a favourite of the masses in the UK. Lyrics by Kumaar are simple, basic and very hummable. The song lacks innovation and sounds like many others but it is a good listen nonetheless.
The to-be most popular song on this soundtrack is the remake and revival of Shilpa Shetty�۪s sexy Main Aayi Hoon UP Bihar Lootne from ��Shool�۪ (1999) with a new title called Hum Toh Hain Cappuccino. Lyricist Kumaar could not have come up with a better title for sure for this extremely funny and danceable song that has been a remake of a song loved for over a decade. The musical collaboration of Anjaan Meet Bros and Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy simply works to deliver a great song that has all the elements to make it a big hit. What makes this song special is that it caters to most popular cultural states of India including UP & Bihar (in lyrics), Punjab (with its super talented singers Sukhwinder Singh and Daler Mehndi) and Maharastra with a whole section of the song sung by actor Riteish Deshmukh in Marathi. Must listen song that will become a rage across India on radio play!
The missing late night club songs gap is filled by the next song called Volume High Karle in the voice of Neeraj Shridhar who does a smashing job when it comes to dance numbers like this. Music by Meet Bros and lyrics by Kumaar have the elements to make it a commercial hit song by almost sounding like a remix version.
How do you add more soul to a soulful song? Answer is to get Kailash Kher or Rahat Fateh Ali Khan to sing the song. Meet Bros do exactly that in Shirt Da Button (Version 2) by getting Kailash Kher to do his version of this song in a Qawali style that makes it a preferred version to listen to.
Dil Garden Garden Ho Gaya (Remix) by Sachin & Jigar is just your average remix of the mill and does not compare to the original with its constant average beat format making it an average track with nothing extraordinary to boast of. Volume High Karle (Remix) too has nothing fabulous in favour of it except for the synthetic trace feel to it giving it the extra edge over the original house beat version.
��Kya Super Kool Hain Hum�۪ soundtrack delivers the ��kool�۪ element along with the fun that it boasts of. Unlike the soundtrack of movies like ��Delhi Belly�۪ (2011) that projected their adult humour in their music soundtrack as well, ��Kya Super Kool Hain Hum�۪ keeps it clean with simple, silly and fun lyrics to catchy numbers that makes the soundtrack more favourable for radio and TV play for families to enjoy together. Vocal performances are average except on the high pitched Hum Toh Hain Cappuccino and Shirt Da Button (Version 2) making them our recommended songs.
