This must rank as the most frivolous soundtrack created by the Team SEL and yet, true to their talent, the trio makes it interesting and entertaining. Using crunchy beats (Oh girl you are mine and Loser) , corny lyrics (Hush hush hush papa is sleeping!) and crazy takes on 70s style (Aap Ka Kya Hoga and I don't know what to do!) this music proves to be a perfect foil for a zany comedy. It is foot-tapping and fun to hear. So what if it is forgettable!
Hanif Shaikh's heavily rock-influenced music does come up with some interesting tunes in this album. Salim Merchant's Aye Khuda Mujhko Bata and Kailash Kher's Teri Marzi are two excellent mellow contemplative numbers. Lucky Ali's piercing Beqarar, Tulsi Kumar- Akaansha Lama- Hanif Shaikh's fluffy Mujhe Teri, Vishal Dadlani's uninspiring title-song Paathshala and plenty of remixed versions then complete the album.
