Lyrics: Jalees Sherwani, Shabbir

Rahat Fateh Ali Khan is an outstanding singer. That’s a fact. But how we wish he would refrain from singing every song that came his way. Tere bina is a typical love ballad that one has heard Khan sing innumerable times. The ordinary melody and trite lyrics like Tere bina dil naiyyo lagda dragit down further. Khan’s earnestness in his rendition is perhaps the only reason to listen to this one.

The music directors sprinkle elements of Sufi over a gentle melody and create Main hoon shab. Though the compositionis unremarkable, it’s Mohit Chauhan’s easy-going charm that will stop one from reaching for the fast forward icon.

Sajid-Wajid take the iconic opening credit theme from Pulp Fiction and brutally mangle it to create the title track Tezz. The song is an assault on the ears. Even talented singers likeSunidhi Chauhan and Shaan can’t salvage this one. As for the much-hyped item number Laila (Sunidhi Chauhan), it lacks both energy and attitude. The lyrics are banal, and in spite of Sunidhi doing a fair job with her vocals, the song just doesn’t make the cut. It also doesn’t help that the number is filmed on the rhythm challenged Mallika Sherawat.

Thakela is a term in Mumbaiyya lingo to describe things that are boring and stale. That word best describes the soundtrack of Tezz.

Verdict: Crashing bore
