Vishesh Film’s latest venture and a Fox Star presentation, Mahesh Bhatt’s Mr X is a larger-than-life superhero film in 3D!
The film revolves around Mr X, played by Emraan Hashmi, who is a copy who finds a new superpower to become invisible, and how the he tackles the challenge of using power the right way and eventually protects the people and the law. Sounds exciting…. but what about the music album? Lets have a look!
1. Tu Jo Hain
Sung by Ankit Tiwari, this song is a typical Emraan Hashmi song. Similar music, similar tune, similar lyrics, and so forth. But it works for him, so okay. It even sounds a bit like Tu Hai Ke Nahi from Roy. Or is it just me?
2. Mr X
The title track starts of sounding like quite a cool soundtrack. But turns out to be lame. It’s basically a song that describes the superhero Mr X. It gets annoying in about 60 seconds, and even gets horny in the middle. The only cool part about this song is that it’s sung by Mahesh Bhatt himself (yes, that very part that gets annoying after a bit), along with Mili Nair and Jeet Gannguly.
3. Saad Shukrana
Another Emraan Hashmi kind of a song, again sung by Ankit Tiwari, which is by now getting extremely repetitive. In fact, every Bollywood song has started to sound like this now.
4. Alif Se
Boring. I don’t know how superheroes dance to Arabian music. Singers: Ankit Tiwari and Neeti Mohan.
5. Teri Khusboo
This song is sung by Arijit Singh and is totally going to make you yawn. The song seem to have some sort of a meaningful point that it’s trying to make within the plot. But just like that, it’s just painful. The lyrics of the song are trying too hard to give out some kick-ass advice for heartbreak, but if I had a heartbreak and heard this song, I’d probably be more depressed.
And oh my god, there is a female version too, sung by Palak Muchhal. Never heard of her before, but this song is definitely not going to help her.
This film would have been probably something really interesting if it just didn’t have any songs at all! But thanks to the music album, it’s just another Emraan Hashmi film, minus the “adult film” tag.
This time it’s missing the awesome tracks that Emraan Hashmi films have, and simply smoulders you with all the love and yearning.
