Dhoom 2 music disappoints

October 20, 2006
The problem with sequels is the irresistible temptation to reference the original -- and that, alone, serves to drag down Dhoom:2 to the level of the mediocre.

In Dhoom, composer Pritam -- flying solo, after forming one half of the musical duo of Jeet and Pritam -- came up with three good songs: the playful Shikdum, the disco-ish Salaame and the anthemic Dhoom Machcha Le.

Those songs defined the album as an amalgam of styles, brought together by a highly competent composer. Pritam gets a second go-round with the music of the sequel -- and this time, fails to clear the bar he had set reasonably high in the original.
