Ek chalis ki last local (Hindi – Assorted)
Ankur’s Bheegi seeli does have an interesting ring to it – minimal, vocal-driven orchestration arranged by Ranjit Barot being the highlight. The strangely named TKnow (Costantino Francorsi) chooses to do an interesting remix of a now-obscure UK bhangra hit of the 70s, Bhabiye Akh Larr Gayee (by Bhujangy Group) in Akh. Aqeel and Sanjeev start Panga well, but it ends up as a predictable mishmash. Sandesh Shandilya’s Ekka chauka is equally inane. Pakistani band Call’s Laree choote pales in comparison to other, better Pakistani bands pitching for Indian films. This soundtrack is high on novelty value but is largely listless.
