Om Shanti Om - Audio Review ( Hindi )

Ajab si is a Pritam’ish melody - eminently tuneful with a lovely orchestration to match. Dard-e-disco is bouncy and rocking - albeit with cringe-worthy lyrics while Deewangi is plain assembly-line with cheesy angrezi intrusions. Sonu is sappy in the Raj Kapoor’esque Main agar, saved only by the backgrounds. Jag soona, despite Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, is surprisingly clichéd, but Dhoom taana is a smart, kitschy take on retro! Dastaan-e-OSO is hauntingly layered, evoking the reincarnation theme much like Karz’s Ek haseena. OSO’s soundtrack largely disappoints as the composers stick to a banal, tried and tested sound.
