So Rakesh Roshan’s Kaabil which is directed by Sanjay Gupta is about to hit theaters though its songs by Rajesh Roshan doesn’t seem to connect with the people. But on an unbiased note, let’s go through the soundtrack of Kaabil.
Music: Rajesh Roshan; Music Album: T-Series
1. Kaabil Hoon / Kaabil Hoon (Sad) – Singers: Jubin Nautiyal, Palak Muchhal; Lyrics: Nasir Faraaz – Rajesh Roshan seems to have visited his chaand sitaare days (pun intended) while composing this song. It’s a vintage Roshan melody that definitely stays with you because of its rhythmic flow and a pious melody, but doesn’t help in sounding stale. Jubin and Palak lives up to staleness of the song somehow. Nasir Faraaz’s lyrics certainly proves to be no help either. When Jubin croons the similar lines but extremely slowly, it’s the sad version. Just that!
2. Haseeno Ka Deewana – Singers: Payal Dev, Raftaar; Recreated by Gourov-Roshin; Lyrics: Kumaar (Original Lyrics: Anjaan) – The kisi ko mera shauk hai part has been done really well which actually makes you somewhat interested in the track. Otherwise, Payal has solely handled this song with aptly needed zest. Nothing else is exciting in this recreated Rajesh Roshan track. Raftaar’s portion is totally avoidable and Kumaar’s lyrics has nothing noticeable.
3. Kuch Din – Singer: Jubin Nautiyal; Lyrics: Manoj Muntashir – Jubin seems apt to render this song, the credit of which goes to Rajesh Roshan for making a right choice. Sadly, Jubin sounds miserable, the cause being his trying-so-hard-to-sound-emotional singing. I personally expected something new from Manoj Muntashir. The orchestration is well handled but the old-school recording drowns the song.
4. Mon Amour – Singer: Vishal Dadlani; Lyrics: Manoj Muntashir – Vishal owns this song the moment he begins, or even before that. A typical trumpetized Bollywood French-Italian imitation which has been heard so many times before. Nonetheless, it’s enjoyable enough though the novelty factor sucks.
5. Kisi Se Pyar Ho Jaye – Singer: Jubin Nautiyal; Recreated by Gourov-Roshin; Lyrics: Kumaar (Original Lyrics: Anand Bakshi) – Somewhere I felt Arijit could have pulled this much better. Jubin tries hard but reaches nowhere near the original rendition of Kishore Kumaar. The one line that is added in this version sounds totally alien to this composition. It doesn’t fit at all. The rest of the song is ditto similar barring the arrangement ofcourse.
Rajesh Roshan does better than Krishh 3, atleast.
Worth Trying: Kaabil Hoon, Mon Amour
The Final Verdict: 2/5
