Music review: New York (Hindi – Pritam, Pankaj Awasthi & Julius Packiam)

KK’s Hai junoon is perfect sing-along material in true Pritam tradition. And KK can never go wrong with such numbers. The same thing can be said about Mere sang, but it’s a bit too routine for showering as much praise. Mohit Chauhan’s Tune jo na kaha too is in a similar vein – reusing the singer’s standard, heartfelt vocals in the same standard, heartfelt tune doesn’t really help, though Sandeep Shrivastava’s words do stand out. Pankaj Awasthi’s Aye saaye mere, despite the rousing backgrounds, hardly stays, even as the two themes by Julius Packiam barely register. Barring Hai junoon, disappointing!
