Many of us must not be in this world or just born when a Musical Romantic film Aashiqui had come. Nadeem-Shravan who were at that time, at the top position, were the composers. Music got a huge success and also gained immortality. Bhatts and Kumars again planned to make a sequel of their hit collaboration. There entered Aashiqui 2. As the music was again a very important factor, they thought of Pritam and M.M. Kreem but landed with Mithoon and Jeet Ganguly. With this musical film, a newcomer has also entered his steps in the industry. The singer and composer Ankit Tiwari!
Music Label: T Series
1. Tumhi Ho – Singer: Arijit Singh; Music: Mithoon; Lyrics: Mithoon
Very few songs in a year come up with such a rage that Tumhi Ho has brought. Mithoon Sharma, again with all addiction has composed this beautiful melody which is sung by Arijit Singh with breezy romance feel in his voice. The soothing bass effect is noteworthy. The notes in the stanza are even more attractive that they won’t allow you to sober up. Lyrics has a great romance and connects to all age lovers. Piano creates a vibe for the whole song. This Mithoon-Arijit jodi would definitely create some more magic moments in the future. I don’t even have a right to declare it because public has already made it a “WELCOME” song in their hearts.
2. Sun Raha Hai/Sun Raha Hai (Female) – Singer: Ankit Tiwari/Shreya Ghoshal; Music: Ankit tiwari; Lyrics: Sandeep Nath
People calling it addictive, some are calling it soothing and some even called it a love anthem. Yes, that’s the power of this song. The newcomer singer-composer Ankit has made his grand entry to the industry as his vocals completely suited to Adiya Roy Kapur. Starting with a mild guitar, this song bounds the listener right from the first sixty seconds. Electric and base guitars are used quite effectively along with pure rock drums. Lyrics connect to the youth lovers quite well. Ankit Tiwari impresses the whole India.
Another version which is the female version of this song is sung by Shreya Ghoshal. When you listen to this one, I am quite sure you would forget the former. It is more soothing and the arrangements are so beautiful that one would be astonished to hear that. Do I need to say anything about vocals! No! The queen of melody owns this song and credit to Ankit too for composing such a beautiful melody in his very first attempt.
After the two young guest composers, enters Jeet Ganguly who composed a typical romantic melody beautifully sung by Palak Muchhal. She totally resembles Shreya Ghoshal, as her vocals have the same tuning effect, now it’s good or bad for her, that we can’t decide. Arijit is as good as always. His notes are well managed and the arrangements are nice. Irshad is always at his best so no need to give any review about him. Notes in the Stanza are awesome and so is the guitar.
4. Hum Mar Jayenge – Singers: Tulsi Kumar, Arijit Singh; Music; Jeet Ganguli; Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
Jeet Ganguli created it well, but it sounds like a 90’s romantic track or you can say a more of Aashiqui track than Aashiqui 2. Tulsi Kumar has made it even more 90’s. Notes of Mukhra sound stale and stodgy. As the stanza arrives, you would feel much relaxed as it is a little modern than the mukhra. Now when Arijit enters with his “intoxicating” vocals, he completely owns this song and raises the level of the track. The song is too filmy to digest, the basic Guitar melody is very beautiful though. Lyrics are also written in 90’s way. After multiple listening, it would start attracting you.
5. Meri Aashiqui – Singers: Palak Muchhal, Arijit Singh; Music: Mithoon; Lyrics: Irshad Kamil, Mithoon
Meri Aashiqui is an additional version of Tumhi Ho. In this, Palak Muchhal sounds even more like Shreya Ghoshal. The song starts with soothing notes sung by Palak which is adorable. After her part, Arijit again comes to the hook line of Tumhi Ho and the song becomes a perfect duet melody for the listeners. Irshad Kamil’s lyrics make this song more beautiful and pure. Although it has not become much popular as its male version, but some would definitely find this one better. A worth listen!
6. Piya Aaye Na – Singers: KK, Tulsi Kumar; Music: Jeet Ganguly; Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
This Song starts with some “HEAVY” vocals of Tulsi Kumar. Yes, Heavy! You would find so weird that she has actually created some strange voice to begin the song. The starting is a shit! The hook line increases that shit. Piya Aaye Na is damn straight, with no modulation. It feels good when the stanza comes and KK raises his pitch high. It sounded awesome. So, do listen to it for the antara. It would surely give the listeners the much needed pleasure.
7. Bhula Dena – Singer: Mustafa Zahid; Music: Jeet Ganguli; Lyrics: Sanjay Masoom
A typical “Bhatts-inviting-Pakistani-Artist-to-sing” song. That means the same Dukh-Dard, the same sorrow, the same guilt but he managed all quite well, I am talking about Mustafa Zahid, the voice behind Hum Jee Lenge which was a huge hit. The composition would surely remind you of former non-Pritam Bhatts album where a man is crying and sacrificing his love 😀 The guitars are used in the same old manner. No other major instruments were involved to beautify it. The arrangements are stale and uninteresting. It’s time to understand that the same sad old story doesn’t work.
8. Aasan Nahin Yahan – Singer: Arijit Singh; Music: Jeet Ganguly; Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
The same Arijit Singh who was sounding damn addictive in Tumhi Ho, does lack something here. It definitely must be the composition and lyrics. Jeet has composed it in an uninteresting style, Irshad’s lyrics offer nothing but a sheer disappointment. Starting with the tradional Bhatt style guitar, this song is only a one-time listen. It is a “GET OUT” track.
9. Milne Hai Mujhse Aayi – Singer: Arijit Singh; Music: Jeet Ganguli; Lyrics: Irshad Kamil
Now this one is impressive! Starting with beautiful guitar riff, Arijit Singh stands out in this one! A catchy and melodious composition with wonderful romantic lyrics by Irshad surely make it a worth listen. The stanza is superb and the heavy guitars at the end are tremendous. A pure, confident and a sure-success this song is!
10. Aashiqui (The Love Theme) – Instrumental; Music: Mithoon
A beautiful love theme based on the tune of Tumhi Ho. Piano plays an important role and beautifies the instrumental more. It’s called Aashiqui theme. Well, yes the song which actually represents Aashiqui 2 music is Tumhi Ho so the theme should definitely be made to dedicate to this amazing melody. Theme refreshes the same way as it’s original song does 🙂
Aashiqui 2 was said to be a musical romantic movie. So the soundtrack was expected to have some songs which would deal with immortality. But sadly except Tumhi Ho, no other song reached that expected level. Mithoon was provided with one song and he did an awesome job by attracting all the listeners and making them drowsy with his tunes. Ankit too did a great job as it was his debut song and he sang and composed really well. Then comes Jeet Ganguly who is the most senior among them but he totally disappointed and lowered the level of Aashiqui 2 music. Some of his tracks had 90’s essence, some had bad notes, some dealt with poor arrangements and rest of the songs… well, rest of the songs would never get a chance from the listeners as they would have already rejected the album.
