The makers of this long delayed project seem to have pulled out all the stops to ensure that their product doesnâ€™t appear dated. However, changing the filmâ€™s name (from Vidroh) and adding a song by current craze, Shreya Ghosal, canâ€™t disguise the overall stale sound on this album. Anand-Milindâ€™s arrangements are okay but their tunes are very forgettable.
"Rafta Rafta" kicks off the album - well, actually it doesnâ€™t so much â€˜kickâ€™ off the album but rather gives it a â€˜gentle nudgeâ€™. Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik comply dutifully with the composersâ€™ instructions but they canâ€™t save the number from being average at best.
Vinod Rathod and Poornimaâ€™s "Maina Kunwari" is a folksy number with plenty of energy. However, the melody (or lack thereof) is amazingly dull. It seems Vinod Rathodâ€™s perfection of his rural accent was wasted here.
Sadhana Sargam and Sonu Nigam provide some enjoyment with the generic love song, "Chehere Mein". Like "Rafta Rafta", this song is just average but worth a listen. The two singers definitely help this number with their skilled renditions.
New composers, Satish-Ajay, make a guest appearance by composing the other â€˜itemâ€™ number, "Aahi Re Mai". I hate to say it but they succeed where Anand-Milind fail. The tune is instantly infectious and the arrangements are made up of heavy percussion that blast out of your loudspeakers to shake you out of the mind-numbing slumber induced by the other tracks! This racy song is sung by Shreya Ghosal who injects a surprising amount of raunch into the track and ends up sounding strikingly similar to Poornima.
Police Force is definitely not an award winning soundtrack but some music fans may find "Rafta Rafta", "Chehere Mein" and "Aahi Re Mai" appealing. It looks like Anand-Milind have really lost all their lifelines now.
