Lyrics: Vishal Dadlani
The theme song by Sudesh Bhosle does a RD burman with his voice but then that is forgivable because the film was inspired by Rd’s music in the first place but after it’s idea was stolen by the dil vil pyar vyar filmmaker- Sujoy Ghosh decided to drop the emphasis on RD’s music. Bhosle does a fine impersonation of RD here.
Suno na by Shaan sounds like a letting go of inhibitions in expressing his emotions-, a nice flowing number which makes for easy listening. Boss kaun hai has three voices but Amit kumar’s voice is a pleasant surprise-takes you back into the kishore Kumar/ RD era-here he tells us the story of Rd’s life in a lovely lighthearted fashion- the medley of RD reminiscenes is a pleasure to hear. Ironically one sits and listens to this veritable narrative with more interest than one might to a song.
Ho gaya vo gaya is again a number which has had a great deal of attention paid to it. in the way the interlude voices come on to enliven the lyrics but it falls short somewhere. The next ‘sahi hai re’ is more fun to listen to-Udit’s voice is optimistic as usual., here with the chorus he seems to do the work of not one but a group of singers.
Side B starts with Tu aashique hai by Kk- a number which again makes you stop to listen, Vishal and Shekhar first stopped us in our tracks in pyar mein kabhi kabhi and they do it again here.
Jab kabhi has Kk and Mahalaxmi in a soft duet but it doesn’t quite hit you, too long winded in it’s exposition though both the singers sound good. Hume tumse pyar kitna makes you exclaim’ah’ as soon as it starts- it’s such a pleasure to hear Amit do a Kishore
Kumar! The number is sure to evoke memories as one watches it on screen. Evidently the director has interspersed this number with lines from the earlier popular numbers of RD for just this effect. Ruk ruk with Amit again doesn’t quite measure up to the earlier number but to beat that composition would be difficult in any case.
Tera muskurana by Shaan- makes pleasant listening but that’s about all-it sounds like a visual situational song and will probably see better than hear.
Jhankar beats at least arouses your curiosity. The young director is very sure of what he wants. The songs might just be a very integral part of the film rather than mere additions for relief.
