Here is something interesting – this movie has 4 songs and for each song a different music director. And general knowledge tells us that seeing this many music directors in one film is bad news.
Bombay Ho Bangkok (Sukhwinder Singh) : After seeing the title of the song and the fact that it is composed Sukhwinder Singh, there is a hopeless feeling you have to have. And with Sukhwinder Singh singing lines like “Bombay ho Bangkok, rock baby rock” how much worse can things get? This one ranges from mediocre to annoying at times. SKIP
Dheere Dheere (Ronnie Shirish) : Sung by Zubeen Garg, this song tries hard to be melodious. But unfortunately is nothing more than a run-of-the mill song. If you don’t know who Ronnie Shirish is, don’t worry because neither does anybody else in the world. AVERAGE
Dil Ka Haal (Pritam) : Seeing Pritam’s name on this track did get our hopes up. And seeing that the singers are Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan, our hopes got up even higher. But to no avail. After listening to this song it is apparent Pritam was not the very bit interested in making this song. BELOW AVERAGE
Same Same But Different (Salim-Sulaiman) : The singers of this song are KK, Shreyas Talpade, and Lena Christensen. Salim-Sulaiman (who also made the music of Chakde India) give peppy music to the song but the lyrics are way too stupid to give this song a chance. It might look okay on screen but doesn’t offer too much audio-wise. TOO SITUATIONAL
2 OUT OF 10…..Maybe the worst album of 2007?
