Music review: Chandni Chowk To China (Hindi – Assorted composers)
Kailash, Paresh & Naresh serve an ace in the earthy S.I.D.H.U, peppered with lively lyrics by Kailash, but their other track, Chak lein de, despite all that techno-sound and inspirational theme, is passable. The other trio, Shankar Ehsaan Loy, get both their songs right – the striking title song with the right tinge of mock Chini and the honeyed melody, Tere naina, that grabs you immediately. Bappa & Bappi’s labored recreation, India se aaya tera, works solely for Taufeeq Qureshi’s brilliant percussions. Bohemia’s CC2C has Akshay rapping his life and is megalomania personified. The trios emphatically rock the CC2C soundtrack!
