Well, it’s Salman Khan once again with who else but the duo of Sajid-Wajid. This team has worked together in many films now including Partner, Wanted, Main Aurr Mrs Khanna, Veer and now Dabangg. They seem to have developed good rapport. One thing is common in all their movies and that is a mix of all genres of songs in the album. Dabangg is no different.

The album opens on a highly positive note with ‘Tere Mast Mast Do Nain’. A delightful number, the lyrics of the song has been composed by guest lyricist Faaiz Anwaar. It is quite a catchy song with full of melody and romance. The track has a Sufi base to it and there is no one better to justify that base than Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. A must-listen.

Next up is current chartbuster “Munni Badnaam”. It will remind you of ‘Beedi Jalaile Le’. Lyrics by Lalit Pandit who is also the guest composer of the song, the song is currently ruling the charts. Sung in a rustic style by Mamta Sharma and Aishwarya, the song is funny, entertaining and will certainly please front benches. A typical masala number with all the ingredients of a hit.

“’Chori Kiya Re Jiya” rendered by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal is a melodious, sweet sounding and appealing track. It has got an intrinsic innocent appeal.

Next up is “Udd Udd Dabangg” sung by Sukhwinder Singh is the title track of the album. Sukhwinder is intense and powerful like always. There is a drunken song in form of “Humka Peeni Hai” with Salman as the centre of attraction yet again. Sung by Wajid, Master Salim and Shabab Sabri, this is an average song and fails to create any solid effect.

The album ends on a high note though with ‘Dabangg Theme’. To sum up, Dabangg manages to deliver what it promised.
