Actor Anil Kapoor has produced an eclectic bunch of films. A few engaging ones like My Wife’s
Murder and Gandhi My Father and a couple of vacuous films like Short Kut and Aisha. But barring the last one, none of these films had soundtracks of any merit. Kapoor’s latest flick, No Problem, which releases this month, boasts of three music directors – Pritam being the main composer while Sajid-Wajid and Anand Raj Anand have composed a song each.
Pritam’s Shakira (Kalpana, Hard Kaur and Master Saleem) kicks off to a fairly engaging start but a dull antara prevents it from becoming a full-blown, fun dance number. Babe di kripa (Kalpana, Vikrant Singh) is an unappetising mish-mash of Bhangra and Pop and We are innocent (Suraj Jagan) seems like a tune from the ‘80s and is downright forgettable.
No problem, sung by a host of singers including Wajid and Suzzane D’Mello, has been set to tune by Sajid-Wajid. Modelled after their earlier title track for Welcome, this one too relies on heavy orchestration and fun lyrics but ends up strictly average.
Finally it’s guest composer Anand Raaj Anand’s boisterous Mast punjabi that redeems this album to an extent. Anand and Sunidhi Chauhan go all out in their rendition of this full-blown filmi Bhangra number. And in spite of the inane lyrics (Kadh lamba chauda chest chest, jeda dekhe bole best best) the track is loud, energetic and fun!
Verdict: Don’t even think about it.
