AllMusic Review by

The soundtracks to films directed by Rakesh Roshan are usually met with high expectations from critics, as an enormous amount of effort goes into making the music melodious and soothing. His earlier films like Krrish, Koi Mil Gaya, Kaho Naa Pyaar Hai, Koyla, and Karan Arjun have been lauded for their music, with in-house veteran composer Rajesh Roshan (Rakesh's brother) penning some of the most contemporary and beautiful songs of the times. Yet, this time with Krazzy 4, Rajesh Roshan completely fails in making any mark on the music. Not only is the music a total drag, but there's also an air of desperation in the final product. Most of the songs have various versions that serve to fill time rather than churning out anything productive. The title song, "Krazzy 4," with composer Rajesh Roshan, lyricist Asif Ali Beg, and singer Vishal Dadlani, actually gives a nice start to the album. A heavily pumped-up number with a techno-styled arrangement, the song helps provide a hip feeling to the whole album. The song appears again in a remix version and in a slightly altered adaptation as "Break Free." Again, "Break Free" has its own remix version. "Dekhta Hai Tu Kya" features some spiced-up club sounds and funky electronic beats -- and it also has a remix version. Apart from these two numbers, no other song in the track list warrants any special mention. The album as a whole is a low point in Rajesh Roshan's career, and falls short of supplying a winning soundtrack to the film.
