Actor Shreyas Talpade's directorial debut which also is a sort of comeback vehicle for macho man Sunny Deol warrants good music, as both are associated with some chartbusting tracks (especially Sunny). So let's play on!
The playlist kick starts with the recreated and refurbished version of Sunny Deol's very won super hit Daler Mehndi-Alka Yagnik number from ARJUN PANDIT, 'Kudiyan Shehar Diyan'. Tanishk Bagchi seems to be the most sought after composer for reworking on old chartbusters, and as always he does a fine job making the number more contemporary and in sync with the mood (more dance party like). Daler Mehndi and Neha Kakkar make the number work big time.
Composer Rishi Rich dishes up his own very popular brand of music, Punjabi hip hop and pop via 'Kehdi Menoo' which is a nice fun number though he does not really go the extra mile to create something out of the box, as was the requirement as the song is also a sort of title track . Yash Naverkar and Sruti Kakkar render the number with added rap by Ikka.
'Noor-E-Khuda', the superb semi-philosophical, sufi number is situational, very dramatic and inspirational cry to the almighty for help in times of despair. Kailash Kher's spell binding rendition is the highlight of the song which has been put to tune by Sunai Marathe and Shreyas Iyangar with lyrics by Saurabh Pandey.
The playlist comes to a halt with the theme song, 'The Poster Boys Anthem', which is again situational, providing an insight into the story through some apt lyrics by Sonny Ravan who also composes the number along with Shree D who doubles up as the singer. The number talks of a rebellion against the injustices done to the three leads by the government and will make for a dramatic background score.
Summing up, the audio of POSTER BOYS is strictly functional which rides high on 'Kudiyan Shehar Diyan', which incidentally is the only number that will gain some sort of popularity. Not much hard work has been done regarding the music but when its Sunny Pa ji and his gang in an action comedy, even the functional number will work their magic, when the film releases this Friday.
