A mega commercial film like Kambakht Ishq required an entertaining album and the Nadiadwala's trusted Anu Malik to give them a hit album. The album consists of 6 original tracks and 5 remixes, including one track by guest composers RDB.
British Punjabi band RDB comes up with 'Om Mangalam'- a track based on the wedding mantra. This is a full on entertainer from RDB with fast beats, meaningless lyrics and high entertainment value. This was bound to top the charts, since it provides eccentric visuals to go with it. Hit the dance floor!
K.K. and Sunidhi Chauhan team up for 'Kambakht Ishq' which is another fast paced number. Composed by Anu Malik, this song tries too hard to impress. The 'wannabe' feeling of the song is a complete turn off. K.K is the only saving grace of the song while Sunidhi sounds screechy and loud. Below average!
Neeraj Shridhar is renowned for foot tapping numbers but falls flat with 'Lakh Lakh'. The song is too commercial for my taste and is another 'wannabe' track! One wonders what Anu Malik was thinking while composing such tracks! The lyrics and the singing is no better!
Alisha Chinoy gets into seductive mood with 'Bebo Main Bebo' which is a tribute to Kareena's presence in the song. Bebo is funky, cute and seductive to a certain extent. Alisha Chinoy finds herself typecast in such songs, but atleast she's good at it. Anu Malik's composition isn't anything to write home about but still far better than his previous two tracks.
The most sensible song of the album comes in the form of 'Kyun'- a song well sung by both Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal. While the lyrics aren't too original, they do sound cute and bubbly. The composition is easily the best in the album. The song is pleasant to the ears and might lure you into it once in a while even after months.
'Welcome to Hollywood' isn't the best way to end the album, but then that also sums up the album's quality. A big disappointment!
