Black & White (Hindi – Sukhwinder Singh)

Main chala/ chali is plain, with a pedestrian tune, with even more banal backgrounds. The composer puts his vocals to better use in Peer manavan, a lively shaadi number but Yeh hindustan hai is annoyingly trite with even more clich├ęd lyrics. With a genuinely interesting rhythm pattern and adventurous orchestration, Jogi aaya is lovely. This one, along with the Sukhwinder-Hans Raj Hans duet Haq allah – an authentic sufi-styled track considerably elevate the soundtrack’s standing. But, overall, Sukhwinder as a composer seems to be heading into a predictable, uninteresting rut. Subash Ghai choosing him as a composer is rather strange!
