Khiladi 786 (Music review), Hindi – Himesh Reshammiya
Lonely in insanely… insane; an atrocious hodge-podge of assorted genres, topped by Himesh’s ‘lonely lonely’ nose. Balma attempts aping Pancham, with middling results, thanks solely to Shreya. Long drive‘s hiphop Punju sound is appealing, courtesy Mika’s vocals, while, barring Himesh’s horrendous singing, Sari sari raat‘s melody is actually endearing! Hookah bar is terrible techno, even as the title song is trite Himesh template – overdone around one repetitive hook. Tu hoor pari‘s tuneful, folksy and enjoyable Punjabi sound is accentuated by the fact Himesh doesn’t sing in it. But for Himesh’s continued insistence on singing, Khiladi 786 is sporadically tolerable.
