Tere Bin Laden (Music review), Hindi – Shankar Ehsaan Loy, Dhruv Dhalla & Ali Zafar

Out of the two songs by Shankar Ehsaan Loy, only Ullu da pattha works, for its casual, rollicking charm, while I love Amreeka gets drowned under its own predictability. Dhruv Dhalla’s Shor sharaba is at best a muddled track with vaguely likeable phrases, while his other track, Kukduk, lays on the Punju jadedness with alarming nonchalance – shudder-worthy. Ali Zafar’s own, Bus ek soch, where he writes his own lyrics too, is typical Zafar material; very pop’pish and lilting, but doesn’t really stand out either. Tere Bin Laden has a mix-tape like soundtrack where only the song that swears…stays!
