Post the insipid soundtracks of films such as Jai Ho and Ishkq In Paris,Sajid-Wajid need to redeem themselves. The brothers return with the music for David Dhawan’s forthcoming Main Tera Hero and the album features four original songs with a couple of remixes. Well, it’s time to check if the composers have got their groove back!
Besharmi ki height kicks off with Benny Dayal’s shrill auto-tuned vocals. Thankfully, he quickly reverts to his regular, energetic voice and does a super job with his rendition of this techno-pop number. Shalmali Kholgade is vivacious too and works very well for this party song. Expect to hear this one on every dance floor this season.
Palat – tera hero idhar hai would have fallen flat if not for Arijit Singh. Changing gears from his soulful ballads, Singh delivers this typical 90s-style Govinda song with tremendous enthusiasm and spirit. It’s a fun, catchy, cheesy song.
Shanivaar raati, despite the best efforts of Arijit Singh and Kholgade, leaves you cold. It’s the formulaic Punjabi dance track with lots of dhols and drumbeats. Singh’s improvisations get a tad annoying and Sajid-Wajid’s composition is plain mediocre.
Galat baat hai (Neeti Mohan, Javed Ali) begins uncannily like Second hand jawaani (Cocktail) but that’s where the similarity ends. The style of composition is dated and it fails to entertain. The album also features three remix tracks, none of which makes a distinct impression.
Sajid-Wajid fare slightly better here compared to their other recent albums. At least two songs give you some bang for your buck!
Verdict: Time pass.
