Music review: Khallballi (Hindi – Sajid Wajid)

Posted by Karthik

The unruly title song and the much more restrained Bhuri bhuri have Neeraj Shridhar going through the grind – the latter is interestingly groovy. The qawali-base in Yeh ishq hai is plain lame and outdated and so is the 80s style Zari di kurtiyan that tries to differentiate itself with the synthesized rhythms, a la Viju Shah. The only track that works in this soundtrack is the rollicking Marathi-mix, Zhala menu zhala – it’s addictive, sung with fantastic nonchalance by Wajid himself and is orchestrated just the right way! ‘32 brains, zero intelligence’ says the film’s byline. Add, ‘1 kick-ass song’!
