All out disco from da funk brothers, one that usually commands high prices on eBay. Which mostly has to do with the hugely popular (it was once anyway) 'Na Na Na - Yeh Kya Karne Lage Ho'. Sexy spoken vocals, panting, giggling; a great Blaxploitation-like groove with horns, wah-wah guitars and moogs... this is the Hindi 'Je T'Aime' (or, Hemlata is the Hindi Donna Summer). Silly, funny and steaming all at once, the definite highlight of 'Bombay 405 Miles'.
Elsewhere 'Are Kya Karron Kya Karoon' has a great intro (reminiscent of 'Diamonds Are Forever' I think) and some nice details spread around, though I find the melody somewhat irritating... 'Are Ho Gaye Hum Aap Ke Kasam Se' starts off very cheesy sounding, like a Tina Charles type hit, but has enough instrumental breaks on it to make it more rewarding than that might entail.
If you liked 'Qurbani' you'll love this. I enjoy it a fair bit; but despite the hype I don't think the album as a whole is as exceptional as it should have been.
