While Vishal continues to have fun with innovation being the key mantra, Sunidhi Chauhan follows the path of melody set for her. Be rest assured that when the song will appear on the screen, it is bound to be a rage.
The same cannot be said though for 'Zara Bachke' which is coming together of hip-hop, rap, reggae and bhangra-pop! In short, a mix of just about everything that makes for an item number. While lyrically there isn't much that registers an impact (at least in the first couple of hearings), even the rendition (mainly in Punjabi) is just about ok with the much required punch missing in the proceedings. One doubts if the song would have a full fledged appearance in the film since the song doesn't have much scope outside the music video circuits.
There is an extended musical piece that comes at the beginning of 'Reham Kare' before Sunidhi Chauhan comes into the scene. The dark-n-sensuous-haunting mood comes close to the style that was adopted in 'Aaj Ki Raat' [Don] but the similarity just ends here. Overall 'Reham Kare' written by Panchhi Jalonvi has the 80s style disco arrangements filling in the space between the 'antaras' even as music continues to change its flavor with regularity throughout it's 5 minutes duration. Meanwhile Vishal does his trademark take as a back ground voice by mainly singing along in English.
Unlike the title song and 'Naa Puchho', 'Reham Kare' is not an instant winner in the very first listening and also doesn't have long enough legs to reach to the top. Nevertheless, glitzy choreography would ensure that the tune does get it's due with the combination of style and rhythm ensuring decent eyeballs.
On the other hand 'Naughty Naughty' is a song that makes you wonder why is it not on the tube yet? Yet another track that takes it's inputs from the R.D. Burman school of music, 'Naughty Naughty' is indeed naughty, especially due to the way Anushka Manchanda goes about singing it. After 'Golmaal Golmaal', Vishal-Shekhar and Anushka come together yet again and the magic is visible.
With mix of Hindi and English lyrics creating an ideal mood for some naach-gaana-thumka, 'Naughty Naughty' is perhaps one of the rare dance numbers that are western in arrangements and yet so rooted and earthy in appeal. The backup male voice along with chorus only add on to make 'Naughty Naughty' a number that would be played long after the movie is off the theaters. A winner!
Taking over from where 'Deedar De' [Dus] left, 'Mindblowing Maahiya' can easily qualify as yet another dance hit for Shamita Shetty after 'Baras Jaa' [Fareb]. Sunidhi Chauhan is good as always and gets just the right punch in place whenever the key words 'Mindblowing Mahiya' are heard. The song may not boast of fast pace or elaborate musical arrangements but it is an overall packaging, rythm and the tune's base in Indian melody that makes 'Mindblowing Mahiya' a song that is bound to set your feet tapping. The item song is out on the telly and if the initial response is anything to go by, the number is expected to scale the charts in just a few days to come.
The idea behind creating Cash is simple i.e. to create 5-6 tunes that keep the adrenalin flow intact as one takes a break from action sequences. The score was required to match the high tech action and some unbelievable stunts and from that perspective the synopsis was good enough for Vishal and Shekhar to create tunes that would ensure that coupled with good visuals, the soundtrack keeps you hooked on to the screens.
You have seen the title song and 'Mindblowing Maahiya' to be aware about Cash. Now watch out for 'Naughty Naughty' and 'Naa Puchho' and you would surely have your hands full.
