A Mohit Suri Album!! (Humari Adhuri Kahani – Music Review)

Mohit Suri has made a hattrick by directing three films in three consecutive years. The melodrama was well received in Aashiqui 2 and people enjoyed Ek Villain too but it is the music of his films that actually draws the much needed attention of the audience. Mithoon is his pet composer, being almost in his every film, along with Jeet Ganguli and a newcomer Ami Mishra.

1. Humari Adhuri Kahani / Humari Adhuri Kahani (Encore) – Singer: Arijit Singh / Jeet Ganguli;  Music: Jeet Ganguli;  Lyrics: Rashmi-Virag – The trio is well known for churning out melodious hits but this time the man joining the team is Rashmi’s husband Virag and undoubtedly, the song has grown even more heart-touching barring just that line with which I have problem, ishq sahcha wahi, jisko milti nahi manzilein. With this, you are trying to tell that those who get success in living together, their love is not true?? Anyway, the other lines are really beautiful, easily making a lot of lovers cry their heart out. Jeet’s music has also an extra emotional touch that easily drives the listener’s pain towards replaying the song. Not with traditional Bhatt-Guitars, but it has been decorated with amazing melancholic Flute and grand Violins with good support of Santoor in the second interlude. Arijit is the most obvious and perfect choice for this track. If not with the tune, if not with the lyrics, one gets emotional by Arijit’s voice only. If you get bored with this version, there’s another version sung by the composer himself. But I doubt you will get bored of this one. The most emotional song of the year. 


2. Humnava – Singer: Papon;  Music: Mithoon;  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri – When it comes to writing lyrics, Sayeed Quadri never disappoints. He again delivers a winner! The phrase sookhi padi dil ki is zameen ko bhiga de is an example of an extremely mature writing. Mithoon though, with the tune, doesn’t impress much this time. Although it is melodious, it is  lovable but one expects more from Mithoon. The Guitar-led arrangements along with the typical Mithoon-ish digital beats doesn’t offer anything new but using Papon for the first time is a great decision. The song sounds grand in his vocals. A melodious attempt!


3. Hasi (Male) / Hasi (Female) – Singer: Ami Mishra / Shreya Ghoshal;  Music: Ami Mishra;  Lyrics: Kunaal Vermaa –  This track is just among those romantic numbers which spread its fragrance as soon as they release but fade out with time. Ami Mishra is the new guy, another find of Mohit Suri after Ankit Tiwari. Coincidentally just like Ankit, Ami has also sung and composed one version and made Shreya Ghoshal sing the other one. The song has almost everything on Electric Guitar, not too loud though. It’s a cutely written song, a kind of stuff that is anyday liked by the youth. Great first-attempt!


4. Yeh Kaisi Jagah – Singer: Deepali Sathe;  Music: Jeet Ganguli;  Lyrics: Rashmi-Virag – This is the most situation-oriented track where Vasudha played by Vidya Balan is brought by Emraan Hashmi to his own world, a world of happiness. Jeet Ganguli rightfully chooses Deepali over Palak and she completely justified Jeet’s choice with her delightful vocals. Jeet has again used lot of Flute here and the a voice which badly needed to be credited hasn’t been credited for unknown reasons. That male voice seems to be of Zubeen Garg and his vocals have created a great impact on the song. The weakest among all. 


Although being a nice melodious soundtrack, it remains to be the shortest and the weakest of the Mohit Suri’s film albums.


The Final Verdict:  OKAY

The Verdict Order: DISAGREE < NOT A PROBLEM < OKAY < POSSIBLE < AGREE
