‘Krrish 3’ music review: It’s super zero

'Krrish 3' songs are a confused mess,with not a single tune to remember.

Composer: Rajesh Roshan

lyricist: Sameer Anjan

Rating: 12 stars

The album cover of ‘Krrish 3’ comes with a classily designed all-black jacket with the title engraved in gleaming silver font,but you soon realise it has little to do with what lies inside.

The first song ‘Krrish krrish’,sung by a campy Mamta Sharma,doesn’t have a single redeeming quality.

Salim-Sulaiman’s haunting ‘Krrish’ theme,composed for the original background music of ‘Krrish,’ is slaughtered by a faux electronica arrangement.

A robotic voice whispering Krrish’s name deserves special mention for transporting the listener to the universe of Shaktimaan,instead of an ultra-modern superhero movie.

‘Raghupati raghav’ is scarily unimaginative in all aspects — it exhausts the happy Bollywood dance number template; but once you are done with the rest of the album,this seems heavenly.

At least it sounds melodious in parts. The less said about the lyrics of this song,by Sameer Anjaan,the better.

To be honest,’Dil tu hi bata’ doesn’t have a bad tune,but Rajesh Roshan seems to be stuck with the old way of arranging a song that it ends up being another insipid affair.

‘You are my love’ is cheesy beyond imagination. Sample a line: No cry,don’t cry,yeh hai masti sweetie pie. It is horribly oversung by Mohit Chauhan and Alisha Chinai,and the central tune is suspiciously close to the Honey bunny ad jingle composed by Amit Trivedi.

I wouldn’t have minded ‘God,allah aur bhagwaan’ as a grand closure song while growing up in the ’90s.

It is sincerely sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal but sounds too outdated to be taken seriously.

Rajesh Roshan was never the most inventive of Bollywood’s music composers,but his old-fashioned,melodic sensibilities kept up well with the style of movies his brother,Rakesh Roshan makes.

Here,it’s a confused mess,with not a single tune to remember. It’s a new low in Rajesh Roshan’s career and also perhaps,the final signal to move on.
