Seeing the suspect cast and that Roop Kumar Rathod made the music, I knew this album was hopeless. I wonder why he even makes music? Is there such a shortage of musicians that singers (such as Roop Kumar Rathod and Sukhwinder Singh) have to make music for films?
- Dhoom Dadakka (Daler Mehndi and Jaspinder Narula) – This song does absolutely nothing to separate itself from the hundreds of other bhangra numbers out there. Nice try guys but just because you add the word dhoomto a song doesn’t mean it will be lapped up! On a side note, I do wish we hear more from Jaspinder Narula in the future. Rating:
- Hari Om (Sunidhi Chauhan) – Perhaps, maybe, slightly better than the first song mainly because Sunidhi’s singing. But don’t get the wrong idea – this song is also pretty bad. Rating:
- Ara Ra Ra Ra (Udit Narayan, Roop Kumar Rathod & Kalpana) – This is the Holi number in which will be picturized on the entire village. This song could not have sounded anymore outdated. Rating:
Luckily theres no more songs in the album (unless you want to give the remixes a try)
2008 has been one of the worst years in Bollywood music-wise thanks to album like this.
