This one's a pleasant surprise. Just when you'd thought that the RG Varma Factory had gone stone-deaf, at least this mix `n'-match fast effort yields at least two top-of-the-line tracks (which reappear in remixed versions of course).

Like it or not, Himesh Reshammiya steals the thunder from Pritam with the most replayable and inspired number on the CD - and it has him warbling Tadap, tadap, tadap to the high heavens. Still, you got to give it to the much-criticised man.

The layering of the backbeats and the tempo are perfect material for disco stomp-outs. H R does his own playback and is joined by Tulsi Kumar who does seem to be a bit too highpitched for comfort. Clearly, Sunidhi Chauhan is sorely missed on this duet.

Prolific Pritam comes up with a pretty peppy Aa khushi se khudkushi kar le - but the lyrics should come with a statutory warning. What is Mr Sameer saying - Go on, let's commit suicide happily? Please, that's just what we don't need to hear in this day and age. Ignore that.. if you can that is.. and you'll be happier.
