Allah Ke Banday (Music review), Hindi – Assorted composers

Ish Bector’s Kaala jaadu has a naive, folk’ish tune wrapped well in simple, effective orchestration. Kailasa trio – Kailash Kher, Naresh and Paresh’s Kya hawa kya baadal sounds interesting but is also clearly missing their pop outing’s stupendous standard, while Chirantan Bhatt’s Maula is too tepid and stale to make any impact. Tarun & Vinayak’s Rabba overdoses on exotic music, particularly Middle Eastern, with no specific direction, even as Hamza Faruqui cooks up a decently impactful, uncredited cover version of Alanis Morissette’s Uninvited, in Mayoos; Sunidhi Chauhan powers it, like a true diva! Too many cooks, as usual, you know what…!
