It is futile to expect much from the music of 3 Bachelors. A film that went on floors a decade back and is seeing an abrupt release now, it isn’t quite a musical. Though the composer here is Daboo Malik who can be expected to churn out a melodious tune or two, the fact that this is a work that was finished years ago means an outdated product is in the offering here.
The album kick-starts with a dance number ‘Dag Mag Dag Mag‘ which, as expected, has the kind of arrangements that were left behind during the Govinda era. Lyrics by Praveen Bharadwaj are nothing to write home about and ultimately it boils down to Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan to lift the song with their rendition. To give credit where it is due, both of them are quite spirited here and Malik too tries to pep up the proceedings, especially in the ‘mukhda’. However over all the song just doesn’t fly.
Moreover there isn’t much to cheer about in the immediate next song, ‘Dhoom Dham‘, a quintessential item number set in rural/small town. While Rekha Mistry spins some routine words as a lyricist, singer Kalpana isn’t able to add much either to this song which is plain and simple passÃ© in the very first listening. Arvinder Singh joins Kalpana towards the latter part of the album and while one can sense a ‘Munni Badnaam‘ deja vu, though sans any excitement whatsoever, one just makes a quick jump to the third and last song of the album.
All hopes are lost though once Vinod Rathod begins his rendition of ‘Shankeriya Shankeriya‘. Another song written by Praveen Bharadwaj, this one takes close to 100 seconds to get to the point but still doesn’t manage to create any impact. Newcomer Mou Mukherjee gives company to Vinod Rathod behind the mike but this ‘teri paayal bole, kangana and bindiya’ stuff hardly manages to impress.
3 Bachelors has three songs in it but none manages to leave any mark whatsoever. Skip it.
