Music Review: Woodstock Villa

Well, I started writing this for Sikandar. I mean, mainly because it's the debut movie of Sikandar Kher, son of Anupam and Kirron Kher, yet another star-son to enter the Indian film industry, almost at the same time with Mimoh, Mithun Da's son. But the songs turned out to be quite good, at least more than I had expected. So here is the music review of Woodstock Villa, the much awaited debut of Sikandar Kher.

Woodstock Villa is almost a typical Anu Malik album with songs just fine, nothing much exceptional, but not disappointing either.

The album contains 9 songs including 2 remixes.

First song of the album is 'Dhokha' sung by Anchal Dutta Bhatia. The song a slight cabaret feel associated to it, even with the harsh voice of Anchal. An average song whose popularity will depend a lot on advertisement.

Next there is 'Sawan mein lag gayi aag' sung by Mika Singh. The popularity of the song is not to be doubted though there have been some changes in the original one. There is also a club mix of the song at almost the end of the album which is not bad but not likely to replace the original.

Third comes 'Kyun' which seems promising, just like from the Pritam's school. Sung by 'The Aryans', The song has something that we have been liking for past one year or so, again and again, and I don't think this one is going to be an exception.

The fourth song of the album is 'Yeh Pyaar Hai' sung by Anchal Dutta Bhatia with Shaan. The song has a few background voices in the start that give the song a beautiful feel. Shaan has sung the song beautifully and so has Anchal Dutta Bhatia. The song is a light romantic, feel good number which is likely to be liked by people.

Then comes 'Koi Chala Ja Raha hai'. It's yet another song well sung from Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. The song starts with a slow rendition in Rahat's own voice which is followed by a fine, slow number.

Sixth on the list is 'Raakh ho ja tu', by Shibani Kashyap, of course giving her special guitar-voice touch to the song. The song moves slowly with beats matching the slow pace in the background.

The last original number of the song, or say un-remixed number, as we can never be sure of original with Anu Malik, is 'Dhokha Dega' again by Shibani Kahyap. The song seems to be a background score in itself with an espionage feel that matches the movie's posters and promos.

Finally there is the club mix of 'Sawan mein lag gayi aag' followed by a remix of the first song 'Dhokha' which has nothing much to it except for a increased speed while compared to the its original. But if promoted well, the song can be popular.

Overall, the album has three good songs, Kyun, yeh pyaar hai and Koi chala ja raha hai. So with the rest of the songs being average, the album is can be put in a 'slightly better than average' category.
