Bachna Ae Haseeno (Hindi, Vishal Shekhar)
KK and Shilpa Rao complement each other beautifully in Khuda jaane – a sweeping melody accentuated by excellent chorus, while Lucky boy, follows a predictable tune, but with a catchy rhythm that works. With Jesse Cook-like guitar and Khuda hafiz’ish tune (Lucky Ali factor?), Ahista ahista too is interesting. Shekhar’s voice differentiates the otherwise trademark Yashraj, Jogi mahi. Small town girl sounds more like the trio’s music – Shankar building on the addictive hook quite well. The everlasting title song’s remix is a punchy new avatar with zingy rap intrusions by Vishal. A step behind De taali, but enjoyable nonetheless.
