Aladin Music Review – ***


It all started six years back when the music of Jhankaar Beats was released. This was the soundtrack that brought together film maker Sujoy Ghosh with composers Vishal and Shekhar who have never looked back ever since then. In fact such has been the benchmark set by the composer duo in Jhankaar Beats that each and every album of theirs is expected to throw at least one ‘Tu Aashiqui Hai‘ or a ‘Suno Naa‘. They did come up with some good music for Sujoy’s next film Home Delivery too but sadly, the effort went completely unnoticed. And now the team comes back with Aladin which belongs to an altogether different scale and setting. With Vishal Dadlani writing lyrics for all songs in the album barring one (by Anvita Dutt Guptan), Aladin is expected to be a huge soundtrack considering it’s larger than life theme and treatment.


‘Big’ is actually the way ‘Genie Rap‘ begins as the number is as foot tapping and infectious as it gets. An extremely well paced rap song that keeps the funk on throughout it’s relatively shorter 3 minutes duration, one wishes that the fun stayed on for much longer. Anushka Manchanda, who is time and again roped in by Vishal-Shekhar for certain special songs, makes an impression in this fun song which is bound to be a HIT with the kids. A Hinglish number which is sung with aplomb by Amitabh Bachchan, ‘Genie Rap‘ [which comes with the key words ‘Make A Wish‘] is lavishly choreographed too that adds on to the grand look and feel.
