Wedding season never ends in Bollywood, and sometime it turns into interesting sessions of ‘making or breaking’ of relationship(s). One such assembly of happenings comes alive in JODI BREAKERS. After the super-surprise success of musically enriched TANU WEDS MANU, actor R.Madhavan gets a new lease of life as a solo-hero in B-town, and returns with this frothy comic-caper. Salim-Suleiman, a tuneful Jodi associated with recent pack of multiplex friendly romantic musicals (BAND BAAJA BAARAAT, LOVE BREAKUPS ZINDAGI and LADIES V/S RICKY BAHL), lead the musical bandwagon along with the support of reliable lyricists Irshad Kamil and Shabbir Ahmed. Expectations…yes, indeed soaring high this time as now the music has been catching fast on all media circuits, all thanks to generous promotions, bankable face-value and laudable production design. Can we expect a chartbusting treat from the reliable ‘‘jodi” of Salim-Suleiman? Will they make it this time? Let’s get started by plugging on ‘play’ button…

CHECK OUT: Bipasha-Madhavan lip-lock in JODI BREAKERS

Auspicious martial bliss musical thrives, comprising mainly of tuneful ‘‘shehnai” works, delivering out spells of dancing ‘masti’ on floors, sets off a trendy musical pedestal for the album and flick in the introductory track ‘‘Kunwara”. Fresh from the success of BAND BAAJA BAARAT, composer duo Salim-Suleiman try to rejuvenate the ‘shaadi’ festive season with trendy DJ stylized madness with a strong traditional orchestral base. As per the decorum and loud rhythmical feel, it reminds of tracks like ‘‘Om Mangalam” (KAMBAKHT ISHQ), exuding out the escapades of a joyous ‘bachelorhood’. Salim Merchant’s smooth toned voice sings out this ‘anthem of bachelorhood’ with zest and flair and makes this an entertaining fair. Well suited for the DJ stylized marriage parties, it comes out as a worthy outing for urbane listeners too; a well groomed ‘club-remix” in the credits would have been surely added fuel to the fire. Amusing!!!

Femme Fatale magic grips! Sultry vocal oomph, captivating lyrics and funky rhythmical patterns with the catch-word ‘‘Bipasha”, flaring out like wildfire on floors, comes like another probable hit ”item-number” in pulsating sounding ”Bipasha”.

Shraddha Pandit’s sensuously crooned voice is the lovable delight that enamors from the first beat and takes the show to the desired dizzy heights. It starts off with a strong folksy South-Korean rhythmical feel (somewhat like ‘‘Zara Zara Touch Me” (RACE)) but later comes more like a fusion of Arabic cum westernized pop-rock funk. Conceived to lure passionate Bipasha Basu fans worldwide, it promotes and glamorizes this diva (just like ”Bebo” (KAMBAKKHT ISHQ did for Kareena) with bagful of catchy one-liners, with added ‘‘qawwali” back-up vocal support of Shadab Faridi. Like Neha Bhasin likable vociferous flows in ”Dhunki” (MERE BROTHER KI DULHAN), Shraddha Pandit’s rockstar performance is the brightest highlight and should be one big factor in making this as a probable chartbuster hit. Extra madness, ”masti” and fun is enthralled in its ”remix” version, a highly exhilarated DJ work that is likely to be hitting high and loud in discotheques. Shraddha’s immensely svelte is well-echoed in prolific sound engineering moves and connects explosively with fast-paced tempo and funky beats. Go for it!!!

Sobriety of romantic emotions gets embellished in contours of classically refined vocals touches and penetrates well into listening senses with a gem of performance in mellifluously composed ‘‘Darmiyaan”. Like ”Yeh Haunsla” (DOR), a thematically pitched touching track, Salim-Suleiman get the finest of classically perfect Shafaqat Amanat Ali Khan again in this lovable Sufi-rock ballad. Rejuvenated to poetic perfectness, after ROCKSTAR immense musical success, Irshad Kamil’s prolific wordings (‘‘Ab kaise dhoondein manzilein, Raatein hain jaise maatam, Aate hain din bhi gumsum, Roothi hain saari mehfilein, Itna saatao na, yun yaad aao na, Ban jaaye aansoon bhi zubaan…”) are the finest of the album. Ditto for English wordings, sung with equal finesse by talented Clinton Cerejo at intermittent places, and making this a trendy multiplex-friendly listening fare. As far as rendition and melody-quotient is concerned, ‘‘Darmiyaan” holds the brightest spot and adds one more delightful track in the kitty of Shafaqat Amanat Ali’s classical Bollywood singing. ‘‘Darmiyaan (reprise)” is a typically crafted melodramatic background score work, is mellowed in instrumentals and has delightful vocal charms of lovable sounding Shreya Ghoshal that enchants as well as haunts to perfection. Melodious!!!

CHECK OUT: Will Bipasha spoil Kareena’s party?

Mushy romantic moment’s live another life of togetherness and compatibility, as now meaningful lyrics takes a plunge into sensibilities of real love in the somber sounding ”Mujhko Teri Zarrorat Hai”. Salim Merchant along with Shadab Farid sings this delightful sounding Sufi romantic breezy track with ease, and gave adequate lovey-dovey moments to relish for the lead pair on screen. Shradda Pandit’s brief demure rendition is added bliss and together it comes out like a quintessentially Hollywood-ish rom-com situational track, a territory that has been well-enamored by Vishal-Shekhar in recent times. ‘‘Mujhko Teri Zarrorat Hai (remix)” comes like a candy-floss flick specialist ‘club remix’ track, which is extra energized with electronic based ”Synth-pop” musical grooves, added beat juggles and DJ spins. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan comes out as surprise entrant in this glitzy sounding version and gives another commercially viable track to the album.

Finally, Salim-Suliaman show their brawny edges in varying genres, styles and tempos in the well-crafted sentimental number ‘‘Jab Main Tumhare Saath Hoon”. Like ‘‘Mujhko Teri Zaroorat Hain”, it has that peculiar Hollywood-ish ‘rhythm and blues’ soulful romantic feel with gleaming Indian classical touches. Benny Dayal’s boyish blustery voice suits the mood with the brilliance of classically cultured vocals of Shilpa Rao in tandem with the sentimentally hued arrangements. Shilpa Rao’s tenderly pitched voice is modulated to perfection, a striking feature of the track that concoct rhythmically with shades of willowy saxophone jazz and classical ‘‘sitar” works, as they move together like waves of emotions. Salim Merchant’s added English back-up vocals give it a true uber cool urbane feel. It’s again dexterity in instrumentals as well as vocals that paves way in making this as another delightful add to the album, overall a well-etched situational romantic track that will be adding substance to the melodramatic flows in the persuasive or affirmative moments of the flick. Lovable!!!

JODI BREAKERS delivers a ”Jodi” of style and substance in desired proportions. The ‘‘Jodi” of Salim-Suleiman proves its mettle again in delivering out bagful of musical entertainment, leaving no space for mediocrity in their entire line-up of soundtracks. Hugely promoted tracks like ‘‘Kunwara”, ‘Bipasha’ and ”Darmiyaan” are already popular while the other two soft sentimental numbers are well conceived for their desired needs and situations in the flick. Lovable and peppy music has always been a trump card for a commercially successful rom-com, and it will be interesting to see all these worthy soundtracks coming flamboyantly alive on big screen, till then…Happy Listening!
