3 Bachelors has been a film lying in the cans for a long time. Sharman Joshi clearly appears to be in his Style or Excuse Me days in the promos and the posters. Naturally, the film’s music has been composed in the last decade (sometime in the 2000s), although we aren’t sure of the exact time. Daboo Malik has composed the songs for 3 Bachelors and quite a few renowned names such as Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan have lent their voices.
3 Bachelors start things off with Dag Mag Dag Mag. Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan team up to sing this romantic number. What this song may have done about ten years back cannot be speculated at this time but it clearly is way behind the time of its release. The lyrics and the composition are clearly outdated and even the singers seem to be in their much younger days while crooning this track. The lyrics are simple and lively but they do not manage to capture one’s fancy nor does it impress.
Dhoom Dhaam brings Arvinder Singh and Kalpana for a peppy dance track. Dhoom Dhaam is a partially desi number with an overdose of dhol beats. The beats are capable of inciting one to tap a foot but the lyrics fail to lift the spirits. Kalpana is excellent with her rendition and Arvinder also does a pretty fair job. Sadly, it is the composition again that pulls it back. Dhoom Dhaam has the potential of being a number at least for the pub hoppers and after Dag Mag Dag Mag, it is certainly pleasant to hear this feel good, foot tapping number.
Shankeriya Shankeriya clearly belongs to the singers. Vinod Rathod and Mou Mukherjee give their 100% and sing it to their utmost potential. Despite the old school feel, Shankeriya Shankeriya may hit the right chord with a certain section of music lovers. It still sounds like an old track and despite its average impact on first hearing; a repeat listening can make you appreciate what Mou and Vinod have done with the otherwise simple song.
3 Bachelors has a pretty short album as it is not very common to see only 3 songs in film albums these days. Whether or not it has anything to do with the ‘3’ in the film title, people may not be too inclined to buy an album for just 3 songs.
