Kaabil (Music review), Hindi – Rajesh Roshan
The title song is a pretty neat combination of Rajesh’s old-world charm of a melody and a spiffy new orchestration. Gourov-Roshin’s recreation of Rajesh’s Saara zamaana is surprisingly punchy, with a pulsating new rhythm. But, in Kuch din, Jubin drones on miserably, with music that’s akin to a teen’s first stage performance. Mon amour is a generic Ricky Martin knockoff. The title song’s sad version is… pretty sad, while Julie’s iconic Dil kya kare gets yet another remake (by Gourov-Roshin) that only helps reiterate that the original’s tune was so memorable. Kaabil’s soundtrack starts well, but the kabiliyat ends soon.
