Music review: Straight (Hindi – Sagar Desai & Louis Banks)

Straight is singer Suraj Jagan’s show all the way – there’s no other vocalist mentioned in the CD! Composer Sagar Desai gets it right fabulously in the Roxy Music-styled Saanson ka rukna complete with an addictively repetitive psychedelic chorus. Humse jo churaiye continues in the same genre, but in a more somber mood and is eminently listenable. Kya hua hoo hoo is tuned suitably to evoke the helplessly-in-love feel. Ironically, Love Love Love makes you Run Run Run – the former by Sagar and the latter by Louis Banks, are two tracks that pull this quirky and interesting soundtrack down.
