Billu Barber

T-Series Rs.160 (CD)

Pritam has done it again! Of late, there hasn’t been any film with too many captivating songs. “Billu Barber” is likely to fill this void. Each of the eight songs has reasons to hold you with its euphonic, soft and at times foot tapping music.

“Marjaani” that uses a popular Punjabi invective ‘khasmanukahni’ with quite some audacity, keeps you on your toes with its fast beats. Same goes for “Love Mera Hit”. It’s a speedy number with faster beats — a party song.

Singer Neeraj Shridhar keeps you swaying with “Mere Khwabon Mein Rahti Hai” with this Sayeed Quadri song. What makes it hummable is his effortless shift from a Hindi line to English with the same beat, rhythm and tune.

“Jaoon Kahan” to which Rahat Fateh Ali Khan lends his soulful voice is good company during a solitary journey. “Khudaya Khair”, penned by Gulzar and sung by Soham, Akriti Kakkar and Monali, has the ability to draw your attention even if you are in a crowd, with its sonority.

“Billu Bhayankar”, sung by Ajay Jhingra, caricatures the character of Billu Barber. It has a typical ‘semi urban’ feel with its music and beat and might remind you of the famous yesteryear number “Pinjre Wali Munia”.
