Purani Jeans (Music review), Hindi – Ram Sampath

The very-guitary Yaari yaari is at a best passable ‘friendship’ song; hardly in line with the film title’s original, by Ali Haider. Yeh beetey din works considerably better as a lilting farewell song; its acoustic version, even more so! KK does wonderfully well in Dil aaj kal, a breezy and instantly likeable melody with a neat Latino twang, while Mika’s Out of control is frothy, in a very frivolous way. Jind meriye could be something from Ram’s material in Coke Studio – neat fusion and well sung by Navraj Hans. An oddly conventional soundtrack from the otherwise inventive Ram Sampath.
