ShowbizMovie Title: Showbiz

Music Director: Lalit Pandit

Lyricist: Sayeed Qadri

Cast: Tushar Jalota, Mrinalini Sharma and Gulshan Grover

Producer: Mukesh Bhatt

Director: Raju Khan

Do you remember who Lalit Pandit is? He is from the genius duo “Jatin-Lalit” who brought us some of the best music in the 1990s. Dilwale Dulhania Le Jaayenge, Yess Boss, Pyaar To Hona Hi Tha, Mohabbatein, and Kuch Kuch Hota hai are just a few examples of the great run this duo had. Recently however, their quality of music had gone down a great deal. Perhaps this was the reason for the seperation.

Since seperating from his brother, Lalit has already had one album released – a dud called Life Mein Kabhi Kabhi (2007). Showbiz is his second release and since it is coming from the Bhatt camp the expectations have to be quite high. But to tell you the truth mine weren’t that high.

Tu Mujhse Jabse Mila Hai – The trend of soft rock started by Pritam continues with this song. Good to see Lalit trying a different kind of song because rock isn’t really his genre. This song sung by KK will appeal to some and to others it won’t. I belong to the latter category. BELOW AVERAGE

Mere Palak Ka Tu Hi Sitaara – Once again it feels like you are listening to a heard-before Pritam song. Isn’t it getting annoying hearing these types of songs over and over again? Sung by KK, one of the better songs of the album. NOT BAD.

Kaash Eik Din Aisa Bhi Aaye – The background music of this song is extremely similar to Chand Sifarish from Fanaa especially the guitars. This song by Shaan and Shreya is the only duet in the album. GOOD.

Meri Ibtada – Shreya sounds good as usual…but musically this song is nothing. Also the song is only about a minute in length. NEXT

Duniya Ne Dil Tora – Sounds like something Jatin/Lalit would have made together while they were on their way down. You cannot say this song by KK is horrible but it isn’t great either. Like almost all the songs in this film this one is also somewhere in the middle. BORDERLINE AVERAGE.

5 Out Of 10. Lalit Pandit tries his best impersonation of Pritam and to some extent is successful. The only problem is these types of songs are getting old now.
