Margarita With A Straw (Music review), Hindi – Mikey McCleary & Joi Barua

Foreign balamwa is an un-Mikey’ish item song, worsened by Sonu Kakkar’s exaggerated vocals. Prasoon’s lyrics and Rachel Varghese’s diva-style vocals hold the Clapton-style Choone chali together. In Meri aadat, Mikey’s ode to R.E.M’s Losing My Religion, Anushka delivers like only she can. Mikey comes into his own in the English tracks – the jazzy I need a man that Vivienne totally owns, and the jingle-style Don’t go. Aai’s aalaap and Laila’s theme offer lounge’ish sounds. The soundtrack however belongs to Joi Barua’s effervescent Dusokute, that first featured as Dusoku melute in his fantastic debut album. Mocktail Margarita With A Straw.
