music review{previous review}

Waisa bhi hota hai: A mixed bag provides the songs for video director wunderkind Shashank Ghosh's directorial venture. The English-dubbed version will bear the moniker Shit Happens!. Quite prescient, perhaps, considering the soundtrack. sajanaa is the first of three tracks contributed by pop singer Shibani Kashyap. This one has her voice blended into the lounge-beat-laden-scape in conventional electronic fashion. {official page}. The film also has Chhal-debutante Prashant Narayanan. The full title of the film includes a deceptive suffix of "Part II" (there never was a Part I!). Hope the film holds up to the evidently skewed spirit of the proceedings. The opening strings gave me Irish vibes. Kailash Kher's Allah ke Bande is a refreshing calm before the crassy storm of Rabbi Shergill's lau.nDiyaa. Shibani bounces back with prem da.nk. Her next, tum bas tum has some cool funk phased guitar riffs slicing away, along with sitar samples thrown into a lounge mix. Bali Brambhatt's my name is gurdeep is a shameless ripoff of my name is manjeet, a cool release from Bangalore duo the Balle Balle Boys. The dependable Sunidhi Chauhan wraps up the album with jism.
