Music review: Badmaash Company (Hindi – Pritam)
Ayaashi is racy and definitely catchy; if only it did not spell it out in the name of a chorus…! The title song has Benny Dayal crooning a flat tune embellished occasionally with intriguing reggaeton-style backgrounds, while Krishna gets a neat, foot-tapping package in Chaska – rhythmic and addictive! Pritam reserves the best for Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, in Fakeera – instantly pleasing power-melody, brilliantly arranged in typical Pritam style with a 80s pop style! Mohit Chauhan’s strangely titled Jingle Jingle doesn’t disappoint either, despite the standard Punju chorus infusion. Pritam gets it massy and right, after a long time!
