Bhatt camp affixation and infatuation with Paki pop sensation takes a back seat with their latest outing SHOWBIZ, a film about the dark side of show business. Lalit Pandit gets his second major endeavor in the marquee by improvising his potential as solo composer. The veteran composer, who cherished amiably with the brand name of Jatin-Lalit, tries to rehash and rejuvenate Pritam?s magical ?rock-mania? charms successfully in two hot-shot rock soundtracks but later album sinks without any trace. After modest DHOKHA, Bhatt?s SHOWBIZ proves too insufficient in terms of style as well as substance for the standards they have set up in their last few chartbusting offerings.

Lalit Pandit carries forward the enthralling soft rock music aesthetics set up by flamboyant Pritam as he chooses his favorite man KK to flourish with the most sparkling singing offering in ostentatiously chartbusting ?Tu Mujhse Jab Se Mila?. This ?full of life? concert bonanza tries to strike chord with KK previous hits like ?Kya Mujhe Pyar Hai? (WOH LAMHE) and ?Alvida? (LIFE IN A?METRO) for its vigorous guitar sauntering passions where hi-pulsating electronica music makes it even more merrier. Lalit Pandit strikes his first major blow as solo composer in this Sayed Quadri?s well penned track after delivering moderate hits like ?Hum Khushi Ki Chah Mein? and ?Vallah Vallah? (LIFE MEIN KABHI KABHI), his introductory solo album. The second version comes in trendy ?hip-hop? rendition where Earl does all emceeing with slightly sluggish tempo and chilled-out orchestrations. This happy-go-lucky version is likely to be hotter than the original version, so get into the groove with its infectious beat patterns to shake a leg with its invigorating hip-hop thrust.

KK proves to be ?rock-star? of the album as he chills out with another heart-throbbing soft rock trailblazer in sentimentally penned ?Mere Palak Ka Tu Hai Sitara?. This extra high on ?tempo? racy number clubs trendy electronic arrangements, enthralling orchestrations with KK?s rip-roaring vocals sensationalizing it with its peculiar yore and yell. Pandit?s rises above from mediocrity from his last works and delivers some fine hard rock musical works in its interludes while maintaining the tempo of this flashy emotional number. The ?unplugged? version has euphoric shades of ?Hum Khushi Ki Chah Mein? with drop-dead silent piano notes, nimble flute notes and mild percussive works supporting KK?s promising vocals. Its sentimental hues depict the eternal strength and wisdom of the innermost sentiments depicted through inspiring writing and heart-warming singing.

Tushar Jalota makes his debut as Rohan Arya, a much sought after singer. The media henchmen, if I may call them so, headed by Sushant Singh (brilliant job) goes after fabricating one story after another using him (Tushar) as the prop. They even go to the extent of almost getting him killed in a car accident (sic) and to sensationalize it further, pour alcohol in his mouth while another pulls down the zipper of the blouse of the woman involved in the accident. If this is what television journos do to earn their living, then this has to be a scoop by producer Mukesh Bhatt!!!

Mrinalini Sharma is pleasing. She has the spark. Tushar Jalota too, makes a decent debut.

To go or not: I was the only one in the theatre when the movie started. Five minutes later, two more joined in? Need I say more!
