Son of Sardar (Music review), Hindi – Himesh Reshammiya, Sajid-Wajid & Sandeep Chowta
The title song is peculiarly addictive – must be that chant-like backgrounds and repetition. Rani tu mera raja and Po po aren’t that lucky -mind-bogglingly templatized and bland. Tu kamaal di kudi is strictly no different, but Vineet Singh’s vocals do make a difference, while Himesh’s best in the soundtrack is the pleasantly semi-classical Bichdann that also gains a lot from Rahat’s soulful vocals. Sajid Wajid’s harmonium-guitar mix in Yeh jo halki gets Rahat’s help too and manages to be reasonably engaging, while Sandeep Chowta’s remix of the title song is pointless. This Sardar’s son makes good with middling music.
