Tabu. Bhoomika Chawla. Riya Sen. Divya Dutta.
It's a woman's world in Khalid Mohamed's new film, Silsilay, which chronicles the lives of these bright young ladies. The men -- Rahul Bose, Jimmy Shergill, Kay Kay Menon and Ashmit Patel -- lend a helping hand. Interesting!
What about the music though? Strictly average.
The journalist turned filmmaker's earlier Fiza boasted of melodious tunes, followed by the ho-hum tracks of Tehzeeb. With Silsilay, the descent continues.

Composed by Himesh Reshammiya, at his disinterested best, the album features a mix of mundane songs. One can usually bank on Reshammiya to score a peppy chartbuster now and then. But here, he is clearly in no mood to oblige.
The soundtrack opens with Alka Yagnik and Kunal Ganjawala mindlessly crooning Ban jaiye. It is just another dime-a-dozen romantic duet that could be dubbed ordinary at best.
Flashy beats, high-pitched singing and loud arrangement is what Meri chandi tu is all about. Despite all that, the dance track falls flat.
It sounds like a devotional song, but Meri jaan, as the name suggests, is anything but that.
The soundtrack tries to redeem itself with the okey-dokey Jab jab dil mile. It is helped considerably by Sonu Nigam's lively rendition.
Some tracks are so random that they make no connection with the listener. Such as Ahista ahista.
Celina Jaitley justifies her special appearance in the catchy Belibaas. Sunidhi Chauhan's husky tone provides behind the screens support by oozing sizzle.
Jazzy rhythm and oomph do not make a hit song. Case in point is Tere Liye. Alisha Chinoy, Jolly Mukherjee and Jayesh Gandhi's joint effort cannot save this wannabe ditty.
Let me save you the trouble and money. The soundtrack of Silsilay is plain boring.
