Music review: Billu Barber (Hindi – Pritam)

Marjaani is a thumping, high-energy item song, but Love mera hit hit is Pritam pushing his luck – age-old hooks and stock rhythm. Neeraj is much better in the relatively slower You get me rockin, but for the auditory diarrhea in music; a similar problem in the rambling Ae Aa O too. Raahat Fateh Ali Khan and Soham Chakraborty infuse some earthiness in the soundtrack with the beautifully restrained Jaoon kahan and Khudaya khair, respectively – the latter is particularly lilting! In Billoo Bhayankar, only Gulzar’s verse-play stands out. One rocking item song and two pleasant melodies – smooth job, Pritam!
