Ishkq in Paris – Music Review (Bollywood Soundtrack)

You can listen to the soundtrack here.

The techno arrangement of It’s All About Tonight is as banal as its title, and there isn’t much that Sophie Choudhry’s French lyrics or Sunidhi Chauhan’s singing do to help the song work past that. Of course, for dance floors it shouldn’t matter. Reduce the techno factor, throw in Punjabi hooks with the same level of datedness, and you get Teri Choodiyan Da. If the arrangement doesn’t keep you off the song, Wajid’s annoyingly processed vocals definitely will. Kudiye Di Kurti isn’t any fresher, but sounds slightly better than Teri Choodiyan as composers Sajid Wajid decide to go slightly easy on the processing this time. There is only much that Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal can do with their singing though. Rahat Fateh Ali Khan sings his heart out in Saiyyaan, but unfortunately for him the song is evocative of his own Jag Soona Soona from OSO. Jaane Bhi De is the only song that bears some semblance of newness in the whole soundtrack, and charms with its soothing guitar-led arrangement and cheery tune. The duet version, with Sonu Nigam and Sunidhi Chauhan at the vocals, is an easy pick over Wajid’s solo version.

Ishkq In Paris. Thoroughly dated score from Sajid Wajid.
