Music review: Hari Puttar – A Comedy of Terrors (Hindi – Aadesh Shrivastav & Guru Sharma)
There’s something distinctly retro about Guru Sharma’s work! While Bhai aa gaya sounds like a terrifying combination of 80s pop and Mika’s brand of rap, Meri yaadon mein has an extended Latino theme, but in an embarrassingly early 90s Anu Malik tune! Hari hari puttar goes a few more years back to rock-n-roll and is unadulterated annoyance. Not to be outdone, Aadesh Shrivastava manages to add a new layer to the word contrived, with his title song, Tutari and a god-awful track titled, Hari puttar is a dude. These composers sure deserve their souls to be sucked out by dementors!
