Music hits rock bottom
Friday, May 6, 2005 • Hindi Comments

Pop-bhangra albums are becoming hard to bear, especially when they're put in a movie context and have therefore to adhere to a given situational context.

Rahul Rawail who earlier got some fabulous music out of R.D. Burman in the Sunny Deol starrers "Betaab" and "Arjun" hits rock bottom with this one.

Can't blame him when composer Anand Raj Anand seems determined to create sound and fury signifying a sensation that suggests nullity.

Another extremely mediocre album with tired bhangra-pop numbers peeping out with unappetising velocity. You really can't dare to wrench this one out of its context.

And even within that given context you've to be really sold on Punjabi beats to bear three different versions of the title song, including a "Dhol mix". Wish one could say there's never a dull moment in this album. But sorry, in spite of the percussive power, the sounds just drift away from sight and park themselves in some distant thundering arena of boisterous sounds.

Most of the throaty voices from Sukhvinder Singh doing "Rab jaane" (along with singer Kamaal Khan who plays a villain in the film) and Sunidhi Chauhan (trying to infuse life into a very mediocre 'Raat kuch aur tthi') to Jaspinder Nirula and Kamaal leave you thirsting for something beyond the immediate sensation. But alas, no salvation.
