Dhund is a horror story from House of Ramsay. The formerly choosy Viju Sha seems to be grabbing any and every project that comes his way recently. As a result, Dhund - The Fog doesn't exactly showcase his true talent. Songs don't get more dull than, "Samjho Na Mujhe". Even the singers, Abhijeet and Madhushree, put in a very poor performance, probably due to lack of interest. To add insult to injury the track is repeated as the equally dull, "Samjha Nahin", this time sung by Poonam Bhatia.

It's a shame that the peppy rhythms of  "Kitna Intezaar" lead to such a boring tune. To compound matters, Alka Yagnik sings at an unbearably high pitch, making you reach for the ‘skip' button with one hand and the ear plugs with the other!

"Aas Paas" has an one and a half minute intro of atmospheric background music leading to the title track. Viju Sha was much more successful with this genre of song when he composed the title track for Gupt. However, the song is definitely better than those mentioned above, and Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan give the song the required amount of mystery in their respective versions.

Things start to look up on the album with the remainder of the tracks. "Dilbar Mera Aaya" has some good music with expressive singing from Udit Narayan and Sunidhi Chauhan. However, for some inexplicable reason, the chorus make strange noises throughout the song. Still an enjoyable track.

Viju Sha's contrasting of a heavy drum rhythm and a more conventional Indian rhythm make for some interesting arrangements in "Mehki Mehki". Sonu Nigam & Alka Yagnik sing the song wonderfully and come up with arguably the best song on the album. The memorable melody will linger with you once you've heard it, making you want to hear it again.

Sunidhi Chauhan's Ila Arun impression in "Main Albeli Main Matwali" is quite enjoyable. Unfortunately, the song is laden with suggestive samples that take the raunch factor way out of our comfort zone! If you can manage to sit through the embarrassing moans, you might just hear a good tune. This soundtrack probably services the film adequately, but lets face it, it won't be winning any awards!
