Now the movie itself sounds about as hackneyed as they come. But hey, we've got Salman Khan in it. He'll rescue it I'm sure.
Shankar Ehsan Loy - who registered such a thumping success with Jhoom Barabar Jhoom recently and are on the up and up - produced the music. Javed Akhtar wrote the lyrics - and seems to have satisfactorily negotiated the fine line between dense and frivolous.
Ali Larter, whose brave and instinctive turn on NBC's hit Heroes powered the early creepy vibe on the show and revived her career, sings on "Listen to the Music" with Shaan. And her smoky voice serves her well enough that you eagerly forgive her muddled diction. There is also a chance to listen to Sonu Nigam's sister Nikita who does a wonderful job here after her spunky and catchy but somewhat unmemorable work on "Rabba De De Jawaani" from Pyaare Mohan.
The best picks from the CD:
- Listen to the music - Ali Larter, Shaan
- Sachha Pyaar - Nikita Nigam
- Yeh Pyaar Hai - Shaan
- Tan Man (Marigold Erupts) - Vikas Bhalla, Alka Yagnik, Sneha Pant, Nihira Joshi
And another link you can use to listen to the songs (not sure how long it'll be up).
