Raqeeb (Hindi – Pritam)

Posted by Karthik

KK pulls off a superbly orchestrated – with amazing pauses – Jaane kaise in an uncharacteristic low pitch while Gayatri Ganjawala has been assigned a very trendy and more than adequately improvised rip-off* of Pashto singer Rahim Shah’s song of the same name, in Channa ve channa. Dushmana’s racy sound camouflages a rather predictable tune even as Tum ho has Pritam attempting a high-powered, latino-tinged track again, this time with Zubin’s vocals. Alisha just about manages a weak Qateel. As a soundtrack, Raqeeb does boast of Pritam’s trademark sound, but barring Jaane kaise and Channa, the rest is predominantly ho-hum.

Keywords: Rahul Khanna, Jimmy Shergill, Sharman Joshi, Tanushree Datta

* Note: Thanks to Aseem Lalani for sending me the info on Channa ve channa’s original.
