NOT A CHIP OFF THE OLD BLOCK - BUT GROWS ON SUBSEQUENT LISTENS
Was expecting more out of A. R. Rahman. Although the track does grow on you after the first listen, as is true for most Rahman compositions, it is definitely not of the A grade material we are used to from the Rahman stable.
The pick of the lot is definitely 'Kaise Mujhe' by Benny Dayal and Shreya Ghoshal, Benny seems to be fast emerging as the singer to watch out for (remember Tu Hi To Meri Dost Hai from Yuvvraaj) and Shreya is in a league of her own, altogether. The song takes you back to the 'Roja' days of Rahman.
'Lattoo' is one which will make you dance wherever you are, and is so much of an item number in style that one is surprised that it is Shreya Ghoshal who has sung it. It reminds you of 'Jumbalika' from Thakshak, from Rahman himself. A very peppy Latino kind of a number.
'Guzarish', which was the first song to be released is quite hummable.
'Behka' is reminiscent of old Rahman numbers, it has a 'Main Aisa Kyun Hoon' feel to it(though from Shankar Ehsaan Loy).
'Aye Bachchu' is just all right.
Not one of Rahman's best.
