Lyrics: Salim Bijnori
Sukhwinder Singh’s acting debut has the most ‘filmy’ of soundtracks you’d have heard in a long time. So you have Kyunki tu meri zindagi hai, the song that has sarson ke khet type visuals, with flowing dupattas, and hero and heroine embracing every 10 seconds, to prove that they are, indeed, in love.
Then, there’s Dil mera o ho, the song sung by the drunk hero, at a dhaba, with a bunch of truck drivers for company (poetry at its finest). Then, of course, there’s Ishq ki chilam bharle the famed item number, starring a Rakhi Sawant-type entertaining the villain and his sidekicks, screen grabs of which you will see very soon on buses (With lyrics like Mahaul garam kar le, I’d be quite off the mark if it was intended to be a devotional number).
There’s also an inspirational number, Zameen ko cheer do, where the hero rises from the ashes, after his sister has been violated and his parents have been killed, but not before the heroine cries in pre-climax about what their life has come to in Wajood ki talash hai. For good measure, there’s a song for the ending credits, when good wins over evil (one by one, hero kills villain’s army in his godown) innovatively titled, ‘Good thought never dies’.This is formula Bollywood at its best. Buy at your own risk.
