Music Review:Paying Guests(Sajid-Wajid)
by Srikanth Mantravadi
Shaan breezes through the sedate Jack n Jill supported ably by Earl.To be truthful this is what Sajid-Wajid epitomise-imbecile lyrics fused with stock tunes.To expect something above the mundane from the duo would be a gross mistake.With a quasi middle eastern tune and spirited vocals(Sunidhi) Nazar Se Nazaria is engaging.Somehow it reminded me of Sunidhi’s brilliant Mehboob Mere from Fiza.It’s probably due to some resemblances say the meandering tune that ends with a tantalising hook line.And just as you begin to start expecting something better Sajid-Wajid reassure you and come up with the banal Paying Guests.Supposedly the title song the MDs make a mess of it conmposing a singularly bad tune.Maybe they were trying to pay an ode to Bappi Lahiri that Mithun would have been happy dancing to.Considering the fare on offer it is too easy to get pleased by the pleasant Ya Rabula Rabbi sung by Sonu Nigam.
My Rating-Two Tears!!
