From a project with a title like Deshdrohi, one doesn't have any expectations from the soundtrack to follow.
A routine dance number for which attempts have been made to pep it up through fast paced arrangements, 'Ye Ishq Gunah Hone De' is a barely passable track sung by Shaan. Neither is guest lyricist Vimal Kashyap's writing any enticing nor is Nikhil inspired enough to create a kind of number which would hold any future whatsoever amongst music lovers.
Sung by Zubeen and Shweta Pandit, the track is straight out of 80s with lyrics like 'Tere Husn Ka Jadoo Chal Gaya'.
Udit Narayan and Mahalaxmi Iyer come together for a kind of number that instantly makes one remember Anuradha Paudwal who ruled the scene in the first half of the 90s. 'Mera Wada Raha Jina Na' is truly in the mould of the kind of music which was made by T-Series in dozens with a similar melodic setting. Though Kamaal R. Khan has written the lyrics, one wonders whether he had got his inspiration from Sameer?
This one is supposed to be an item number in the making but the punch is clearly missing in 'Bewajah Youn Na Maar'. Khushboo Jain gives Sukhwinder Singh company here but ultimately this one turns out to be a forgettable outing.
With it's opening arrangements inspired from 'Tujhe Na Dekhoon To Chain' [Rang], 'Mera Halaat Ye Kya' takes a different route as it progresses and in the process doesn't come even 10% close to the Nadeem-Shravan composed tune.
The sound of flute at the very beginning of 'Tujhe Dekhoon To Aisa' reminds one of Anand-Milind from the late 80s/early 90s. Well, the number isn't anything better than what was heard a couple of decades back as Shaan and Shweta Pandit attempt a Punjabi outing. At maximum a kind of song that doesn't do any better that creating a feel of deja vu, 'Tujhe Dekhoon' too turns out to be a passable affair.
Whatever be the fate of the album (which doesn't really hold any surprises), credit must be given to Deshdrohi that it has indeed managed to get some top line singers coming together for the album. This is why one looks forward to what Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal have to do in 'Hum Karke Pyar Pachtay', a celebration number. Well, this one turns out to be the best of the lot and even though there isn't anything exceptional about the composition here, at least it keeps the fun quotient on with enough pep in it to keep the listener engaged. Thankfully, a decent ending!
