Jhootha Hi Sahi stars John Abraham and newcomer Pakhi, who is the movie’s director Abbas Tyrewala’s wife. A comedy flick, Jhootha Hi Sahi seems to be fun from what I’ve seen in the trailers. The music has been composed by AR Rahman, let’s take a look at it.
Cry Cry is an attempt at a feel good song. Sung by Rashid Ali and Shreya Ghosal, it just disappoints. Very ordinary lyrics make it mundane and boring, I don’t think anyone will give it a second listen. The same goes for Hello Hello. This one is sung by Karthik, he’s done a good job behind the vocals but the track loses out when it comes to the music and lyrics.
Do Nishaaniyan is the album’s redeeming track. Sonu Nigam sounds really good, the music and lyrics gel brilliantly with his voice and give you a fresh, soulful number.
I hate songs that have forced lyrics. Pam Para is one of those. Shreya Ghosal is good, but the lyrics are so forced I have nothing good to say about the track.
I haven’t heard anything like I’ll Be Waiting coming out of Bollywood yet. A mix of English and Hindi lyrics, the song, sung very well by Vijay Yesudas, deserves applause just for the attempt. It’s a very sweet and simple song, great to listen to and definitely the finest of this album.
Call Me Dil is a cool song. Rashid Ali’s voice has never sounded so beautiful; the track has good beats and nice lyrics.
As you can see, the Jhootha Hi Sahi album doesn’t begin so well but keeps getting better with each song. All in all, it has some good tracks, although nothing exceptional. I guess these are the kind of tracks that grow on you with time.
