Musical Review: Sab Kushal Mangal
Album: Sab Kushal Mangal
Directed by Karan Vishwanath Kashyap , 'Sab Kushal Mangal' marks a double debut with actress Padmini Kolhapure Son of Priyaankk Sharma and actor-politician Ravi Kishann Daughter of Riva Kishan in the main roles.
Publish films like 'Section 375', 'The Accidental Prime Minister' and 'Mom', Akshaye Khanna will return to comedy with this movie.
After a series of films with multiple composers, this album comes as a breath of fresh air with a single musical director. Harshit Saxena and assistant Rohan Malode. All the songs have been written by Sameer Anjaan. Singer and composer Harshit had debuted with 'Murder 2', Hale Dil Tujhko Sunata, who had composed and sung. In this album, Harshit has tried to put together a bouquet of fresh and fun songs with a pleasant sound landscape.
The first song, 'Na Duniya Mangi Hai', is a humble love song performed by Harshit and Bhoomi Trivedi. The rhythm and the beats make this a worm. Pawan Rasaily's guitars and Naveen Kumar's flute are remarkable.
Sung by Sonu Kakkar and Vandana Saxena, the next song, 'Zamana Badal Gaya' is a contemporary folkloric number of the interior, which has a certain rustic charm. Pradeep Pandit's skillful skills in harmony add to the rural feeling.
'Sab Kushal Mangal Title Track' is by far one of the best numbers in the album. The composers have managed a coup of sorts by getting two legendary singers, Bappi Lahiri and Usha Uthup to team up for this duet. This fun party track has them singing together after 37 years. Harshit seems to have overcome the challenge of matching the markedly varied scales of these two singers. The song has a unique sound, it is a perfect mix of retro and new styles. Despite the presence of veteran singers, rapper-singer Akshay Dhawan manages to hold his own and give a noteworthy performance.
The versatile range of Bhoomi stands out in the following, which is a song type song, 'Naya Naya Love' that features Shriya Saran. The rap, EDM and melody balance are recommended. Another version of this song, titled 'Nayi Wali Jab', is a complete Sunidhi Chauhan. She owns it, rap and everything, and takes out the nuances that Harshit has woven into the composition with aplomb. Instantly takes you to the floor of the dancer. Sameer's lyrics are fun, Nayi wali jab jab dhokha deke jayegi, purani yaad aayegi girlfriend.
The last song, 'Ishq Ne Mara Re' is another fun song with some wonderful music. Sung by Swaroop Khan, Harshit and Bhoomi, this is a worm with its classic, jazz, EDM and contemporary touches.
