MKBKM’s unexpected soundtrack

January 20, 2013

Just as impressive as the lyrics (Mandolisms: the one-liners) is the rambunctious soundtrack of the film. Most of the songs, like Oye Boy Charlie, Lootnewale  and Shara-rara-ra sound like music that would play at a rustic Mad Hatter’s tea party.

There are love songs thrown in for good measure and an African Zulu number too; it’s the unexpectedness of the next song that keeps the soundtrack so energetic and quirky.

Bhardwaj, along with co-writing and directing the film, is its music composer as well. Gulzar steps in as an equally eccentric lyricist and easily fits into this brand of eclectic cinema. — AHI
