Want to time travel into the 1980s? Want to try those deadly acrobatic moves? Get your hands on "Himmatwala" remake album and your wishes will be fulfilled.

"Naino mein sapna" opens the "Himmatwala" album and how! Amit Kumar does a spectacular job at recreating the vocal brilliance of the original song and Shreya Ghoshal sounds tailormade for the track. Sajid-Wajid do a great job of keeping the original essence, yet making the track a potential hit in today's times.

Who could have been better than Mika Singh to recreate the naughty "Taki taki"? Again an original track that has been rejigged. Shreya proves yet again her mettle in the industry. An out and out entertaining track, it will tease and raise a truck load of fun.


The first original track of the album "Dhoka dhoka" is an item song that has an "item" team! Vocal powerhouses Mamta Sharma and Sunidhi Chauhan have teamed up with Bappi Lahiri to create a refreshing dance track. With lyrics ranging from Marathi to Punjabi, this is one track that rides high on oomph and spunk.

"Bum pe laat" is up next and it instantly reminds you of the Birdie Song. It's a situational number and Shaan's voice has a butter smooth feel about it. The kids will instantly take a liking to it and enjoy the slapstick comedy feel of it. Even though the track isn't very long, it just might amalgamate well with the movie.

Recreating the magic of the 1980s and the rage that disco was is certainly a mammoth task. The composers, however, do a decent job with "Thank god its Friday" (TGIF). Sunidhi, the expected pick for the track, blends in with the mood and tone of the track, but the video takes the icing on the cake.


With Sonakshi Sinha dressed to do disco, TGIF cannot be ignored. Hear it to believe it.

With spunk, disco "Himmatwala" revisits and redefines 1980s. An entertaining album that promises a lot of fun and frolic, it does not have even a single dull moment. You may want to revisit your old wardrobe to get into the feel of "Himmatwala".
