Honestly, the expectations are kept in check while playing on the score of Khatta Meetha; reason being that the film is not a musical per se. Still, the fact which is kept in mind is that comic outings by Priyadarshan and Akshay Kumar in recent past (De Dana Dan, Bhool Bhulaiya) have actually led to at least a song or two turning out to be huge. Also with Pritam at the helm of affairs, you do expect something good coming out eventually at the least. Still, what you are prepared to listen eventually is some instant coffee score that would manage to work for the time being with anything more only turning out to be an added bonus.
As one presumed, Khatta Meetha has an instant coffee soundtrack that shouldn't take much time to settle down. There may not be anything outstanding presented by Pritam in the album but there isn't anything bad enough to be rejected either. Every song works well within the space it arrives in the album (and expectedly in the film's narrative) and would ensure that the narrative of the film never gets stagnated. While 'Aila Re Aila' and 'Nana Chi Taang' should find immediate attention, 'Sajde' could do well in the long run.
