Music review: 3 Idiots (Hindi – Shantanu Moitra)
All izz well is no doubt funky and does a 2.0 version of Anu Malik’s pet sound (dhumpachikitha anyone?), but this one-hook-trick can only go so far. Zoobi doobi with its faux-retro-filmy sound is almost pedestrian with extraordinarily predictable sounds, while Shaan’s evocatively penned Behti hawa is perhaps the best this soundtrack has to offer. Give me some sunshine’s thought-provoking dialogs do little to salvage what is a standard, often poorly-sung track. Jaane nahin’s louder portion is the WTF musical equivalent of Parineeta’s Thodo Shekhar – Sonu significantly overdoing the feel! Shantanu does what he usually does, mindless of Aamir’ish expectations!
