CASH comes out as showstopper, a rollicking maneuver of stylized action thrills delivered through racy and vibrant musical entertainment. It?s a big occasion where ?trance? musical genre strikes ?full-size? charismatic presence in a contemporary Bollywood offering. ?Trance?, the funky musical format, is basically a combination of various electronic music such as ambient music, techno, and house, which collectively creates a ?trance? (bizarre) like state on floors. Its formation is largely construed with the concoction of repetitious morphing beats and agonizing melodies which would make it exceptional for nightclubs and discotheques. Vishal-Shekhar?s innovative move has prospered back their commercial viability and positively be lauded for their enterprising and pioneering effort in foraying into new territories with great success.
It?s ?trance? ?n? ?hip-hop? mania all over as meticulously penned ?hook? melody of ?Cash to da right to me, Cash to da left to me?? forms a zany loop with pulsating electronic sounds, throbbing drum beats coagulating effectively with energized hip-hop to create a emotions of ?bizarre? in the title track ?Cash?. It?s analogous to Pritam?s ?Dhoom Machale? (DHOOM) though it is intrinsically electronic and trance feast. Sunidhi Chauhan?s svelte ?n? screechy vocals steep in with kick drum on every down-beat with added percussive elements to give it a rollicking appeal. Vishal-Shekhar is the resounding back-up vocals with madcap thrust while their lyrical flow is similar to loquaciously penned ?Sabse Bada Rupaiya? (BLUFFMASTER). Get into the groove and get set for visual spectacle of sky diving, kite surfing, skate boarding where this number works as signature theme track with spine-chilling effect.
Femme-fatale groovy thump rules the show as the hi-voltage trance, vibrant ?bhangra? and trendy electronic sounds collages to give bootylicious babes many reasons to rock the floors in piquantly punched ?Mind Blowing Mahiya?. It can be upbeat elucidation of ?Beedi? (OMKARA) or refurbished ?Crazy Kiya Re? (DHOOM 2) with a peculiar ?trance? electronic effect but overall its catchy rhythmic patterns works sinusoidally with its vigorous thump. Sunidhi delivers one of her captivating dancing tracks but is apposite more for nightclubs for its repetitive electronic sounds that work aggressively with its flavorful drum beat effects. Play it loud and feel the invigorating ?trance? musical effect that proves enthralling to senses.
Simply mind blowing!
More importantly, there is no central character; as most actors plays a cameo ? Esha Deol Shamita Shetty, Riteish Deshmukh, Zayed Khan, Suniel Shetty, Dia Mirza. Only Ajay Devgan has some semblance of a role. It?s his scenes that stand out in a mish-mash of events.
Of the cast, though there is not much scope for one to perform, Riteish Deshmukh excels, and is fast emerging as a comic actor to reckon with. Esha Deol, as usual, sizzles in the dance numbers. Will someone give her a role with meat and look beyond her Dhoom machale exploits?
In short, this film runs on one leg so to speak. But on one leg you can?t reach far; you are bound to fall fast. And when you come out of the theatre, you can?t help going back to the tagline that reads; Earn money the hard way ? Steal It!
That?s what is being done to the viewers; their CASH is being stolen and they don?t even realize it!!
