Force (Music review), Hindi – Harris Jayaraj and Lalit Pandit
Bombay Jayshree and Karthik present Javed Akhtar’s verses beautifully in Chahoon bhi; Harris plays his part with a lovely guitar backdrop. Uyirin Uyire’s third avatar, Khwabon khwabon continues to be a scintillating number – despite borrowing that prominent riff from Rammstein’s Du hast. Main chali reuses Harris’ own Manasa nuvvante (Munna), but spruces it up significantly…and is a clear winner! But Harris’ last, Dil ki hai tamanna is drab and Lalit Pandit’s Dum hai to makes an embarrassing mish-mash of AASMA’s Chandu ke chacha, crooned by ex-VIVA girl Mahua Kamat! As Harris’ long overdue Hindi re-entry, Force seems just adequate.
