Naam Shabana – Music Review (Bollywood Soundtrack)

Songs and credits at the end (thanks to Arindam Nag for helping with credits).

Rochak Kohli exercises more imagination than his other remixer peers in his revisit of Bappi Lahiri’s Zubi Zubi (in turn inspired off Modern Talking’s Brother Louie), and assisted by a commendable vocal effort from Sukriti Kakar, makes it one of the more listenable remixes in recent times. His other two songs are more subdued, but predictable. The singers help mitigate that familiarity to an extent – Sunidhi Chauhan in the inspirational Zinda and Shreya Ghoshal in melancholic Rozana – but they still get daunting. Meet Bros deliver their usual dance floor-friendly sound in the one guest composition sung by an energetic Jasmine Sandlas, Baby Besharam.

Naam Shabana. Short and predictable.
