The Xpose (Music review), Hindi – Himesh Reshammiya
Ice Cream, despite cringe-worthy lyrics, is an enjoyable Pancham-Shankar Jaikishan mash-up. Himesh’s fascination for Tum hi ho is apparent in Dard dilo ko, while the Xpose theme is banal. Despite Honey Singh and Himesh’s fangled vocals, Hai apna dil‘s captivating tune salvages it! Its Blues Mix cranks up the speed, to impressive result. Ditto with Surroor – Shalmali and the sweeping melody soar beyond Himesh’y nasal’ness. Catch me badly apes Kaminey’s Dhan the nan, but Ankit Tiwari and Rekha Bhardwaj excel in their respective renditions of the lovely Sheeshe ka samundar. Surprisingly tuneful soundtrack by Himesh, barring standard nasal annoyances!
