It’s boring electronic music all over the soundtrack of Farhan Akhtar‘s upcoming directorial venture Don 2. The Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy trio should not have given up on their strengths, and that is the use of core instruments. Everyone has heard the Don theme, and how he wants to screw everyone’s case and be on top. Here, on the Don 2 album too he keeps raving about the same thing. That no one can get hold of his dick, no one can fuck him in the ass, no one can drill a nail into his forehead and the like. Even the women dancing around him are saying the same bloody lines. So, there is no music happening on Don 2, there are no hard-hitting songs, no romantic lyrics, no item numbers, nothing. In fact, every song is a blowjob to Mr. Don.
Not a single singer – male or female – stands apart or does anything worth mentioning. Veteran lyricist Javed Akhtar writes (in Hindi of course) stuff like – Don is back, Don will not spare his enemies, Don will take revenge, Don is a winner, no one can stop Don. Give me a break. One track would have been enough to convey this message and not nine. Maybe the idea was to create a fear in the listener’s mind but they’ve failed.
I’m sure the movie would kick ass in terms of it’s presentation, but right now the only other thing that can save the audiences from being tormented by the tracks used in the movie is the background score. It’s not too late to take care of it, because all the stunts Don would be performing and the coarse attitude he would be bringing alive on the screen would be uninteresting if only electronica shit keeps playing in the background. The chase is set to continue from December 23rd onwards and I’m already feeling gagfucked by the movie’s music.
Rating : 2/5
