Kaabil Music Review

By Tulsi, Bollywood.com News Network

This Hrithik Roshan and Yami Gautam starrer is to be released on 26th January 2017. The film is looked forward to after Hrithik’s last disaster, known better as Mohenjo Daro. However, after listening to the music album, I can reassure you that this is going to go down the same path.

The plot revolves around a couple, both of whom are visually impaired. It is a romantic action thriller. Yes, it belongs to three different genres, so you know what to expect – a typical Bollywood khichdi with no masala at all but still branded as a masala film in the name of Hrithik.

1. Kabil Hoon

The album kicks off with a romantic title track. And for a title track, this song is simply terrible. Sung by Jublin Nautiyal and Palak Muchhal, the number has the worst lyrics and music, and is absolutely boring. The video is a little cute.
There’s also a sad version of this song, which got me thinking – Could it get any more sad than this one already? The lyrics here, though, are depressing and dramatic, and even more ridiculous.  

2. Haseeno Ka Deewana

In the voices of Payal Dev and Raftaar, the second number is a remix of the iconic Kishore Kumar track Saara Zamaana Haseeno Ka Deewana, and has completely destroyed the original essence, feel and charm of the retro number. The music is very loud and in-your-face, and both singers have done a pretty terrible job. It’s all too forced. Urvashi Rautela stars in this video, and she’s got a lot to “offer” here. So unless you’re into that kind of stuff, the video isn’t much of a fix either.
 
3. Kuch Din

Making up for the loudness of the previous track, this one is slow and … oh-so-boring (yes, even more boring than the title track). The lyrics are done-to-death, and the singer, Jubin Nautiyal, is making me wonder what went wrong with his personal love life.

4. Mon Amour

Vishal Dadlani is the singer of the song, and, to my surprise, he is a disappointment. The lyrics make no sense, and the music is all over the place. Also, I don’t understand why there is Spanish music with French lyrics. It’s absolutely ridiculous.

5. Kisi Se Pyar Ho Jaye

Once again in the voice of Jubin Nautiyal, the last track is slightly better than all the others – slightly – only because it is a copy (again) of the original Kishore Kumar number Dil Kya Kare Jab Kisi Ko Kisi Se Pyaar Ho Jaye. They haven’t changed much, just some new lyrics have been added to make it sound “cool”.  Jubin sounds good here, finally. Yet again, I would rather listen to the original song.

To conclude, this music album ruined my morning. It’s not worth, or shall I say KAABIL, to be heard at all – not once, not one song.
