Music review: Dil Kabaddi (Hindi – Sachin Gupta)
Sachin’s vocals and the slow, rhythmic melody in Ehsaan are pretty impressive while the Reggaeton-based Uthale ya’s colloquial lyrics jar, even as the tune is decent. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan turns the soundtrack’s focus towards his brand of music in Zindagi ye, but Sachin’s arrangements end up into a bizarre medley. The retro sound in Ok tata done is interesting but Mika goes completely overboard and in Nasha nashila, Sachin creates a fairly likeable, Pritam-like sound. The last track, Goodnight, will be of immense help in our action post that phrase. Indipop composer Sachin Gupta’s filmi debut is just tolerable.
