Prem Ratan Dhan Payo (Music review), Hindi – Himesh Reshammiya
There’s an odd comfort in monotony in Prem leela. The title song‘s sparkling melody comes alive with Palak’s voice, while Himesh makes good use of vocalized rhythm in Jalte diye, ruled by Anwesshaa’s vocals. Shaan and Himesh unleash their inner Kumar Sanu and Nadeem-Shravan, respectively, in Aaj unse milna hai (plus Kehna hai, and another variant, Murli ki, that’s sad for unintended reasons), for middling nostalgia. In Jab tum chaho and Tod tadaiyya, it’s only the Pancham influence that stays. Halo re seems targeted at Dandiya 2015, while Himesh unbearably oversings Bachpan kahan. This Prem is more Rajshri than Himesh.
