Dance worthy!

ABCD

ABCD Any Body Can Dance

Music: Sachin-Jigar

A line up of head banging dance numbers could have been an easy way out for music directors Sachin-Jigar while composing music for a dance film like ABCD Any Body Can Dance. Surprisingly, the duo chose creativity over comfort, exploring and blending various genres and eclectic arrangements to create a soundtrack which can best be described as diverse.

A potent combination of composers-singers Vishal Dadlani and Shankar Mahadevan's vocals are featured in the western influenced devotional song, Shambhu sutaya. It's a composition that surprises you on various levels, with its assorted combination of beats and vocals.

Bezubaan is the highlight of the track. It's a dance number with a meaningful string of words and fabulous musical arrangement. The track doesn't lose its appeal any point. Singers Mohit Chauhan, Tanvi Shah, Priya Panchal and Deane Sequeira have done a commendable job. Psycho re features Mika and Udit Narayan singing a really eclectic (read: psycho) song. Man basiyo sawariyo, a fusion between Indian lyrics and western arrangements, flows smoothly. There is a techno effect given to the vocals, lent by Anushka Manchanda, who effortlessly catches your attention. The beats are subtle; there is a guitar portion in the middle of the song which is short but stands out.

Chandu ki girlfriend is a fun composition. Lyrics are conversational in nature. Raman Mahadevan, Jigar Saraiya, Divya Pushkarna, Sagar Kendurkar and Madhav Krishna are the vocalists here.

Duhai hai is one of those songs that stays with you as you hum it unknowingly. Sung by debutante singer Madhav Krishna, the song rises and drops like an ocean wave, throughout the song, keeping you engaged. Sorry sorry is a disco number, sung by Jigar Saraiya. As the title suggests, the song is an apology, however, it's not the most sincere apology you'll hear as the lyrics are too blatant, almost trying to claim for forgiveness. And its hilarious.
