Music Review: The Dirty Picture

Music duo Vishal-Shekhar, who had a solo release so far in 2011 in the form of Ra.One, round-off the year by going retro. Ooh La La captures that quintessential 1980's magic, and with Bappi Lahiri and Shreya Ghoshal lending superb vocal support, the track bears the marks of a chart-buster written all over it. Ishq Sufiyana (in two separate versions sung by Kamal Khan and Sunidhi Chauhan respectively) takes an interesting 'contemporary' diversion and is characterised by a lilting-if-familiar tune. Sunidhi is a surprise choice for this melody, but she does a commendable job. Honeymoon Ki Raat and Twinkle Twinkle both give off a 80's item number vibe but are more situational and in line with the movie's theme. Not one of the duo's best offerings, but nevertheless The Dirty Picture is quite an interesting throwback.
