Hulchul music fails to excite

'It's one crazy love story' proclaims the tagline of Priyadarshan's latest comedy, Hulchul.
The director of Hera Pheri and Hungama is at it again with his brand of wit that largely comprises confusion, commotion and camaraderie. Featuring a whole bunch of actors ranging from Akshaye Khanna, Kareena Kapoor, Jackie Shroff, Suniel Shetty to Paresh Rawal, Amrish Puri, Arshad Warsi and Arbaaz Khan, Hulchul is about two sparring families and their never-ending rivalry.
Going by the promos, this one promises to be a treat for the fun-starved.
That said, musically, Hulchul is as exciting as papaya. The six-track music album composed by Vidyasagar is hopelessly disappointing.
It opens optimistically, though. Rafta rafta is instantly likeable, thanks to its playful charm and pleasing tune. This old-fashioned melody is a winner all the way.
Breaking the mushy tempo of the album is the raunchy Lut gayee. Item-numberish, it reeks of crude innuendoes like Mat pooch mere sanwariya halat mere joban ki, lut gayi Lanka Ravan ki.
Dull, uninspired, and 'fast-forward' are thoughts that come to mind while listening to Ishq main.
The usually bankable Hariharan lends his trademark restraint to Lee humne, but his valiant efforts are in vain.
Udit Narayan and Kunal Ganjawala infuse zing into the racy Dekho zara dekho, but even they fail to life the album's spirit.
Frankly, one would rather wait for the film.
