Music Review | Kaminey

Kaminey: Composed by Vishal Bhardwaj, T-Series, Rs160.

After Dhan Te Nan everything else has to be an anti-climax. It’s as simple as the law of gravity. It’s impossible to bear Mohit Chauhan do the all too familiar sad song routine. Mellow’s all right for Pehli Baar Mohabbat, but melancholy? Chauhan does melancholy exceedingly well but it’s now inching closer to b-o-r-i-n-g. Like the rest of the songs, this one too isn’t short of glowing lines: Yaad hai peepal ke jiske ghane saayen the/Humne gilhari ke jhoothe matar khaaye the. You’ll warm up to the track after a couple of listens but if it’s a Bhardwaj slow-burner you’re searching for, it’s got to be Laakad from Omkara with vocalist Rekha Bhardwaj at her best. She returns on Raat Ke Dhai Baje on Kaminey’s soundtrack. Here she’s purring like a teasing sex kitten. Sunidhi Chauhan, Kunal Ganjawala and Suresh Wadkar all pitch in to build Raat Ke Dhai Baje into a hottie, but don’t expect Beedi.
