'Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal' soundtrack lacks fizz

Film: "Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal"; Music Director: Sajid-Wajid; Lyricist: Jalees Shewani; Singers: Shadaab Faridi, Monali Thakur, Mamta Sharma, Sarosh Sami, Keerthi Sagathia, Sugandha Mishra, Babul Supriyo, Bela Shende, Ujjaini, Uvie, Wajid; Rating: **

Filmmaker Priyadarshan is back with another comic-caper "Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal" to tickle your funny bones. The film's fate will be decided when it releases, but its soundtrack tries hard to make you smile.

There are five original tracks composed by Sajid-Wajid and penned by Jalees Shewani. The album also has four remixes.

The musical journey kicks off with "Dariya ho", which starts on a high with singer Shadaab Faradi setting the mood right. Monali Thakur joins him for the romantic track that tries to bring festive spirit. However, the composition is a bit low-key and the song lacks the fizz.

One hopes to get a respite in its remix version, but that has the most haphazard usage of beats. Quite a dud this one!

Next up is "Desi mem", which has some catchy beats to keep you hooked after the initial bad eggs. But, like its predecessor, it too fizzles out quickly. The run-of-the-mill lyrics mar the track and the composition loses its track. Even Mamta Sharma is unable to save this one.

However, a ray of hope comes with its remix version that has been given way better treatment by the composers than the original. The beats are catchy and pull off the track quite well with a sigh of relief for the listener.

It is followed by "Zor naache", which truly brings out the rural flavour. Singers Keerthi Sagathia and Sugandha Mishra have done a decent job with the vocals. However, musically speaking, there isn't anything great about the track except that it justifies the rural setting of the film.

Next up is a desi item number "Ringa Ringa", which has Anjana Sukhani shaking a leg on some really groovy beats. There is finally something to cheer about in the music department with a fine composition by the musical duo. Ujjaini and Sarosh Sami have done a wonderful job in the vocals and together they are able to make the listener happy with the catchy song.

It also has a remix version crooned by Abhilasha Chellam, which is well poised and enjoyable, but one should prefer to stick with the original.

Rounding up the album is "Kamaal Dhamaal Malamaal - Theme", which opens with the same tone like "Rnga Ringa". Crooned by Uvie and Wajid, it is actually quite similar to "Ringa Ringa" and it's hard to find much difference between the two.

The final verdict is that music has never been much of a forte for Priyadarshan's films, but at a time when music lovers are treated with such wonderful Bollywood soundtracks, the makers should have put in some effort to dole out at least an average sounding album.
