Kehte hain mujhko… (Hawaa Hawaai – Music Review)

Amol Gupte is back into his children zone after the critically acclaimed Stanley Ka Dabba. It looks quite inspiring from the trailer and the music in the trailer also sounds nice. Hitesh Sonik is mainly a background scorer. The last film which he gave music for, was Akaash Vani I guess. In background score he has a very strong hold. He also last year won Filmfare for best background score for Kai Po Che! In music direction, he is a bit week for me. His composition never appealed much. I doubt the case is different this time.Hawaa_Hawaai_Poster

Music: Hitesh Sonik;  Lyrics: Amol Gupte;  Music Label: Zee Music

 

1. Hawaa Hawaai – Singers: Hitesh Sonik, Swaroop Khan

The title track is very well sung by Swaroop Khan sounding very much like Sukhwinder Singh. The beats are typically in Hitesh Sonik style. Lyrics are motivational talking particularly about the skateboard, a sport on which the film is based. Guitar is in well tuning with the the rhythm. Harmonium is beautifully used as the interlude. Following that, the antara is very disappointing. Whatever energy has been created till the interlude, is spoiled in the antara. Inspirational mukhda, depressing antara.

 

2. Ghoom Gayi – Singer: Sunidhi Chauhan

It’s a Sundhi show all the way. The typical rhythm of Hitesh Sonik with foot tapping arrangements create a nice atmosphere. It seems that this song could be very beneficial for the movie. But very soon the song dissipates the expectation. The second antara makes the song exhausting. Sunidhi is undoubtedly the showman. She has carried away this otherwise uninteresting song so well that it definitely urges one or two attempts. Nothing special without Sunidhi.

 

3. Sapno Ko Ginte Ginte – Singer: Hitesh Sonik

Now, this is highly impressive. Hitesh Sonik delivers a very soothing and soulful melody which starts with a sensuous Flute giving the apt space for Guitar being played in slightly similar pattern as that of Maa (Taare Zameen Par). The whistle which follows, gives assurance that something beautiful has been offered to us. That whistle supports the melody appropriately. Lyrics has a philosophical touch. It’s quite a relaxation listening to the lyrics. Hitesh Sonik has sung wonderfully, crooning each word carefully and steadily. Beautiful. #WelcomeSong

 

4. Sar Utha Ke – Singers: Hitesh Sonik, Javed Ali

A very short rendition by Javed Ali. It’s an inspirational track having motivational lyrics and boosting orchestration. Javed Ali rules the song with his vocals. It perfectly suited him in a way that nobody would have rendered it so beautifully. The Guitar is obviously necessary in almost every Hitesh Sonik composition. The percussion is a thing to listen. The duration of the track is applauding as the if the track had been a little longer, it could have sounded boring. Melodious singing, ear-friendly arrangements, inspiring lyrics.

 

5. Choolhe Ke Angaarey – Singer: Amol Gupte

A very mild rhythm starts the song and continues to be there. This song is sung by the director himself. It’s a typcial Hitesh Sonik composition. Dull, boring and flat. I don’t want to say anything bad as it must have involved his emotions but the composition as well as the lyrics are very depressing. The tune is quite poignant and does not at all justifies what it has to deliver i.e inspiration. Not at all for the mass. Not very much for the class too.

 

Hawaa Hawaai is not made for every music lover. It could have been sweeter, cuter and more beautiful. Hitesh Sonik’s staid compositions have made this album abated. They have slackened the required energy and sweetness. Choolhe Ke Angaarey is the most depressing song of the album. Ghoom Gayi and Sar Utha Ke are saved by Sunidhi Chauhan and Javed Ali respectively. The song that standout for its sweet composition, arrangement and lyrics is Sapno Ko Ginte Ginte which is beautifully crooned by the composer himself.

A Masterpiece from the Maestro! (Kochadaiiyan (Hindi) – Music Review)

AR Rahman has been doing a lot of experimentation in his albums since he has won the Oscars. Rockstar, Raanjhana and the latest Highway were full of experiments. Specially, Highway was an overdose of experiments. The composer made it so heavy that it became uneasy for an ordinary listener to carry the tunes with him. It is also rare for the composer to be seen with two albums back to back within a month gap. Kochadaiiyan, the movie which is in news for a while, has Rajnikanth in an animated role. It is India’s first of its kind. So, obviously Rahman was expected to experiment with its music, but surprisingly he has kept it sweet and simple. Yes, sweet and simple, a very rare combo for him.

(Note: The album Kochadaiiyan is orginally composed and written in Tamil and is being translated for Hindi speaking listeners. The original lyrics is penned by Vairamuthu and Vaalee. The Hindi lyrics has been written by Irshad Kamil, Raqueeb Alam and Mehboob)Kochadaiiyaan

Music: AR Rahman;  Music Label: Eros Music

 

1. Aye Jawaan – Singers: AR Rahman, AR Raihanna;  Lyrics: Mehboob

It’s two ARs singing the song together. No, not to be confused with that pop singer Rihanna. Raihanna is Rahman’s sister and mother of the music composer GV Prakash Kumar. Her vocals, particularly in this song, sounds stunning. She has not much role but whatever she got, sounded awesome in that. Often you have heard Rahman singing a soulful track. Here, he has attempted a different kind of track which is not niche` to his vocals. But what an incredible singing he has done! Marvelous! And what level of percussion has been used! It is vivacious. It will sound GRAND in theaters!

 

2. Dil Chaspiya – Singers: Arijit Singh, Jonita Gandhi;  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

Jonita’s vocal sounds too poor to give a good efficient start. As Arijit begins, everything comes into place. It stats with mild Rahman-ish Piano. The outstanding use of Tabla, Mrindangam and Matka create an old Rahman flavor. Mridangam actually resembles to that of Saawariya from Swades. Everybody was waiting for Arijit to sing for Rahman and when he actually did, the song witnessed an undying beauty. Interlude Violins and a systematic chorus increase its worth. It’s a soft romantic track with traditional Indian beauty and something which Rahman hasn’t composed for years.

 

3. Bol De – Singer: Javed Ali;  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

This song will make every Rahman fan proud. Again incredible percussion! I didn’t like the first line as it is too dramatic to be digested but since it’s for an animated film, apt! Now, the best line is the line crooned by splendid chorus Badlaav zindagi mein soch se hi aayega. What a beautiful catchy line which makes you feel that you are listening to something precious. After listening multiple times, you actually would start crooning it and I bet you would love to do that! Lyrically this song is a gem! It’s a king of inspirational tracks. Specially the lines said in the dialogue form are full of enthusiasm and practicality. I don’t know whether Irshad Kamil just translated the Tamil lyrics or he has added his creation. The orchestra that Rahman used in the dialogues in the heavy trenching voice of Rajnikanth, is phenomenal! In the end, we hear a classical rhythm section played with sincerity. One of the most melodious inspirational tracks! Something to proud of! 

 

4. Vaada Vaada (Female) / Vaada Vaada (Male): Singer: Shashaa Tirupati / Karthik;  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

Though it would have sounded superb in the voice of Shreya Ghoshal but Sashaa Tirupati who have sung in few film albums, have crooned it nicely. The first line struck me immediately being resembled with the line Gin paayega unke gun koi kya, itne shabd hi kahaan hain from the old Rahman song Pal Pal Hai Bhaari (Swades). Here, he has used Shehnaayi/Naadaswaram in the typical way along with Thavil in percussion. A mild Manjeera like sound is continuously played resulting it to be a masterpiece arrangement. While both the versions are exactly same, I personally prefer the female one as the melody is more suitable for the female voice. Swades, Lagaan, Taal wala Rahman is back!

 

5. Mera Gham – Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Javed Ali;  Lyrics: Irshad Kamil

It is the most classically oriented composition of the album. Shreya’s part is more free from instrument and Javed’s part has plenty of percussion which give the song a multi directional approach. Shreya brings this near-to-perfect composition perfectionism and Javed aptly supports her vocals being soothing throughout the track. It starts and ends in a similar way with Shreya’s off-instrumental vocals. The end, in particular is very well given a base with Taanpura and finally ends with a bell. Ting! Height of impressiveness!

 

6. Thandav – Singer: Chorus;  Lyrics: Raqueeb Alam 

Heavy use of percussion has been done, giving it an adorable rhythm. Rahman has always been excellent in managing his chorus, be it Ghanan Ghanan or Azeem-O-Shaan Shehenshah. It, I guess, must be an integral part of the background score and it deserves to get a place in the soundtrack as it’s  a brilliant effort by the whole Rahman team. Will surely be a rich experience for the movie goer. 

 

7. Rana’s Dream – Instrumental

It is again a part of the background score. It has been played by the London Sessions Orchestra. Flute with different brass instruments blended with the string section so well and they crossover each other beautifully as railway tracks do (a weird comparison though). You are gonna have a great time in theater. 

 

8. Aaya Khwaab Ka Mausam- Singer: Raghav Mathur;  Lyrics: Raqueeb Alam

Finally the first single release originally named as Engae Pogudho Vaanam is again a wonderful example for the use of heavy percussion. It was released in October last year and received great response. I would recommend you to listen the Tamil version as the Hindi version sounds very odd and the lyrics seem to be not fitted perfectly. Also, the Tamil Version has SP Balasubrahmanyam which is itself a delight to listen and also makes a huge difference from any other singer’s voice. It sounds like a war song and AR has created it showing his immense understanding of every kind of situation. A not-so-good translation makes it ordinary in Hindi but incredible in Tamil.

 

Kochadaiiyan is one of those few soundtracks which has the potential to live through generations. It’s a Tamil movie and therefore the songs originally are in Tamil but it’s good that they released the songs in Hindi and Telugu too to reach to wider listeners throughout India. Translating lyrics is one of the toughest job and lyricist always try to avoid this job due to the fear that they might go wrong. Swanand Kirkire made a huge regret for doing the translation of Robot songs. I don’t think Irshad Kamil would ever regret for this work because he has done a commendable job. Songs translated by him have words that beautifully blended with the tune and has not a single moment of oddness in them. AR Rahman, after a very long time, has composed songs like these which have traditional Indian melody and are far away from western music. Rahman kept his fusion mania far away from him, gave tunes which creates deja-vu experience and did things which he is known for.

Decent Effort! (Main Tera Hero – Music Review)

Sajid-Wajid teamed up again with David Dhawan and it is their fourth film with the director. No matter how much Sajid-Wajid disappoint, their music has always left a good impression on the listeners in every David Dhawan film. Well, something is there that he extracts from the duo which other directors fail to. Does this album has the capability to overpower Sajid-Wajid’s best work Partner? I asked the same question before Chashme Buddoor review and the answer was “No”. MTH_Poster

Music: Sajid-Wajid;  Music Label: T Series

 

1. Besharmi Ki Height – Singers: Benny Dayal, Shalmali Kholgade;  Lyrics: Kumaar, Kausar Munir

A very catchy but ordinary Pritam-ish club track filled with vivacious techno sounds. The tune is quite catchy and also sounds classy unlike recent Sajid-Wajid tracks. It seems that Sajid-Wajid are exhausted of delivering flops and that’s why they have tried to leave no stone unturned by using the Club experts Benny and Shalmali. It’s a great jodi. They have always impressed in many of Pritam’s compositions and they does the same this time. Mukhda and antara both are pretty attractive and pleases you instantly. I am surprised with the classiness that Sajid-Wajid have shown in this. It is only after Partner when they made a decent classy dance track. But what about the lyrics? Here, Kumaar and Kausar both have been credited. I guess that’s because they both don’t want to be blamed for writing such dirty lyrics. Catchy composition, cheap lyrics. And hence it will be played everywhere on DJ.

 

2. Palat Tera Hero Idhar Hai – Singers: Arijit Singh;  Lyrics: Kausar Munir

A pretty good adaption of the famous track Jahan Teri Ye Nazar Hai. The opening and closing Guitar riff is superb and makes you remember the old Sajid-Wajid who often used to bring such awesomeness in their compositions. Thankfully only Kausar has been credited in lyrics who has written the Govinda type phrases Coffee pilaun, Picture dikhau etc. The real rockstar is Arijit. What a splendid and energetic singing he has done! He has sung the word palat everytime in a different way. The composition is average. It is Arijit who takes it to another level and his singing gives the listeners numerous reasons to listen it on a repeat mode. The Arijit’s show. #WelcomeSong

 

3. Shanivaar Raati – Singers: Arijit Singh, Shalmali Kholgade;  Lyrics: Kumaar

So, the culprit is Kumaar and not Kausar. Disappointing lyrics here again by Kumaar which is combined with Sajid-Wajid’s stale catchy tune. Things which we already have heard in 90’s David Dhawan films, nothing is different here. Sajid-Wajid have kept indianized arrangements as it’s a desi track. Arijit seems to be singing forcefully. His hoye hoye in many parts are damn annoying and sounded cheap. This track was not made for Shalmali. Her vocals are suited for urbanized tracks. So, wrong choice of singers. Do not go with the attractive name. Yes, Shanivaar Raati is actually a very attractive name. That’s how I got attracted. 

 

4. Galat Baat Hai – Singers: Javed Ali, Neeti Mohan;  Lyrics: Kausar Munir, Danish Sabri

I love this rhythm. The same rhythm which had made everyone mad in Tumse Milke Dil Ka Hai Jo Haal from Main Hoon Naa. Since then, it had become one of my favorite rhythms. But again, it has been presented here in an un-classy way. I liked the tune also but not the lyrics. There’s nothing in the lyrics to like about. Javed Ali is perfect for the track and Neeti Mohan also impressed as it is her first desi type song. A nice tune but bad arrangements and lyrics.

 

Besharmi Ki Height is seriously the height of besharmi in the lyrics. Composition is classy and catchy. Title track is fun, based on the typical David Dhawan films’ characters. Arijit is flawless in this but loses his charm in Shanivaar Raati and the track just settles on being an average number. The so-called only romantic track has Javed Ali and Neeti Mohan bagging the responsibility of the soundtrack in Galat Baat Hai which has a likable tune but below average lyrics. Main Tera Hero is a soundtrack that is easy on ears and easy to forget. Shall we assume it to be Sajid-Wajid’s comeback in good music production or shall we just sit and wait for next David Dhawan film to come!

 

The Final Verdict:  OKAY

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

 

Listeners Ki Sameekshaa (Public Review)

  • Palat and Besharmi are best, rest average.
  • Last two songs are not upto the mark, first two songs are awesome.
  • Very average album. Besharmi Ki Height is the only above average song for me.
  • I like the title track only. Rest of the songs are very disappointing.
  • It is the only album which already has every kind of song.
  • When the trailer of Main Tera Hero was out, my expectation was huge. When, the first song released, I was more excited!! But, when the full songs released, I’m not happy on the outcome….
  •  Repetitive….. Its kinda S-W repetitive style….
  • i loved Besharmi Ki Height, Palat n Shanivaar RaatiPalat is my fav from the album…

Valentine’s Day Special: Tum Mile (Pritam – Sayeed Quadri & Kumaar) – Music Remembrance

Valentine’s Day has always been one of the most special days in a year when, leaving all the important work, we spend time with people whom we actually love and care. Love is an eternal bliss which emerges from within. Love is the only thing that has freedom of our will. Nobody has ever loved anyone forcefully. Because it is simply impossible. It’s a feeling that evolves when you actually want it to. Five years back, in 2009, when music director Pritam had just become the top most and busiest composer of Bollywood, Tum Mile was one of those albums that made him what he is. After the successful collaboration with one of the most talented directors of Vishesh Films, Kunal Deshmukh in Jannat, Pritam teamed up again with him in Tum Mile, a love story set against the backdrop of the infamous July 2005 Mumbai Floods. Sadly the film sank badly at the box office as it was not well directed but its soundtrack became one of the most memorable romantic albums ever!Tum-mile-poster

 

Music: Pritam;  Music Label: Sony Music

 

1. Tum Mile / Tum Mile (Love Reprise) / Tum Mile (Rock) – Singer: Neeraj Shridhar / Javed Ali / Shafqat Amanat Ali;  Lyrics: Kumaar

It was the time when Neeraj Shridhar was Pritam’s favorite singer. There used to be hardly any of his albums in which Neeraj Shridhar wasn’t featured. It was because of his velvety vocals that can be fitted anywhere in any situation. He has led the song and also given the backing vocals so there’s no need to hire a voice for the chorus or backing vocals. Neeraj Shridhar is a complete voice. The first version is an upbeat foot tapping track which defines love in a happy-go-lucky way. It’s actually a romantic song in which you can easily show some moves. The tune has a wave-like structure. Simple beats are used with some undertones that makes it more interesting. A very sweet techno tune is played in the part come around. It doesn’t have the Vishesh Films sound which gives a very fresh and warm feeling. Only Piano has a prominent role and the rest of the song has techno sounds. It doesn’t have the antara-mukhda scenario, instead it has three stanzas, like Western songs have, first two having the same notes, the third one having different.

The second version i.e the Love Reprise which is sung by Javed Ali. This version has a more relaxing and nonchalant melody compared to the former. Beautiful Saxophone has been played at the starting and in-between the song. That Saxophone is adorable which makes the mood more romantic. Sitar also shows its little presence after the Saxophone. Javed Ali’s vocals is so damn soothing that it’s hard to stop listening in a loop. Beats are even more soothing than that of Neeraj’s version. Unlike, the former version, it does have the antara-mukhda structure. The romantic breezy melody turns to the Rock side in the second interlude with Guitar being played at its best. Along with the tune, the lyrics also have a softer version and quite appropriate to sing while proposing your beloved.

The third version is titled as the Rock version. Shafqat Amanat Ali’s classical vocals blend quite amazingly with the Rock-ish feel of the song. The version is similar to Javed Ali’s Reprise version with Rock Guitar arrangements in the background quite firmly placed. I didn’t feel the need for this version as the tune of the song is melodious and doesn’t suit Rock music but Pritam has managed it so well that it’s hard to say anything bad about it. The Guitars have been played in “Life In A Metro” style and the sound which Pritam has produced with the Guitar at the starting and the end of the song is something extraordinary! Three completely different but beautiful flavors of a single tune and Kumaar’s romantically aligned lyrics. Tasty!

 

2. Dil Ibaadat / Dil Ibaadat (Rock) – Singer: KK;  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri

A love ballad with a rhythmic tune perfectly written by Sayeed Quadri. It’s all about the Piano. The way it starts, it keeps you engage till it finishes off. KK’s engaging vocals won’t allow you to concentrate on the beautiful background. Pritam has used some of the finest backgrounds sounds here. In the first interlude, there comes a vocal sound which is undefinable. It has a kind of sound played with the Violin that only Pritam can produce and I miss that sound in his melodies now. The antara is sweet and superb where KK rocks. The second interlude has Suzanne giving the backing vocals which takes the song to another level and also helps to connect well with the second antara which is superbly written. Melody is damn catchy and breathtaking. It ends quite smoothly with the part which I like the most i.e the vocals of Suzanne crooning the same tune that is played with Piano in the intro.

The Rock version starts with a bang that has again Piano but with a different tune. It sounds good too but soon emerges to be a duller version. Pritam has perfectly used all the Rock elements and given it a completely different sound. To be precise, the Rock version is awesome but compared to its counterpart, it is dull and boring not because it has any drawback but because the former version is something out-of-the-world. You tasted it? Then don’t just stick to KK. Make your ear familiar with awesome backgrounds that you wouldn’t have heard anywhere in Bollywood.

 

3. Tu Hi Haqeeqat – Singer: Javed Ali;  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri

That Guitar strums, and then that steam-engine-like sound and then comes one of the most addictive sounds/tunes I have ever heard in my life. This melody leaves a deep impact to its listeners. Pritam has crossed the limit of addiction in this song. Again, a wave-like tune which produces great emotions and also a foot to tap rhythmically. Beats have been arranged in a particular one-two-one-two manner which beautifies the song. Pritam has helped him showcase his versatility by making Javed sing in a totally different pitch and voice tenor, as opposed to what is normally associated with him. It also has a Sufi touch beautifully blended in it by featuring Ashraf and Shadab accompanying Javed in the chorus line. That haunting flute deserves a special mention which is rightly should be called as totally Nasheela. The backing vocals taking an alaap just before the second antara is outstanding! I guess, it’s Javed only doing that. It’s hard to imagine how Pritam must have had told Javed to do that. An Immortal Melody. A Bliss!

 

4. Is Jahaan Mein – Singer: Mohit Chauhan;  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri

A breathy delightful melody which provides the mood for a road trip. It has a little different gesture compared to other songs of the album. It’s lively and westernized. Melody is beautiful again, but that level which other songs offered was absent. It starts with a Mandolin giving a fine intro to the song. In the interlude, the breezy Saxophone makes things better. Pritam has made Mohit Chauhan do the Kishore Kumar – like “yodling” in the end which gives the feeling that we have heard something really good. Mohit Chauhan has helped a lot in taking the song to another level with upbeat rhythm and classy backing vocals. In this genre, what I like the most about Pritam that he always ends the antara in a rhythmic format by creating a nice bridge that leaves the antara safely to the mukhda. Other composers never follow this and leaves off the antara blatantly. A journey song that feels fresh because of Mohit Chauhan.

 

5. O Meri Jaan – Singer: KK;  Lyrics: Sayeed Quadri

Starts with KK’s impressive vocals and Sayeed Quadri’s rhythmic lyrics and as KK goes high-pitched, you can’t think of any other thing in your life apart from this track. It’s a gem of a tune! It’s amazing how Pritam has managed the sound so well that the part which has a dull tune i.e o meri jaan, he has used a haunting Piano piece that surely vainsh the dullness and you would be lost in its beauty. The antara is also catchy and extremely melodious. Beats are passionately romantic. Though Sayeed Quadri has written perfect lyrics as it’s a sad separation song but the beauty with which Pritam has made it, you would keep on adoring it and forget it to be a sad song. The second interlude is filled with all the haunting vocals that is a typical Vishesh Films sound and the way KK ends that antara, tanha teri tarah, haan main bhi hoon, that’s something what listeners look for. Not only a heart-touching but a heart-wrenching melody that would keep you mesmerized with its music and emotionally moaned with its lyrics.

 

6. Soul Of Tum Mile – Instrumental

This instrumental track has some beautiful haunting sound. Saz supports the Violin aptly to help it perform being the lead instrument. Endearing!

 

Tum Mile wasn’t a soundtrack that contained variety as most of the Pritam albums do these days. But it surely is the most melodious album in Pritam’s career which displays its simplicity in the best way. 3 versions of the title track, passionate melody Dil Ibaadat, addictive Sufi melody Tu Hi Haqeeqat, sweet and simple road trip track Is Jahaan Mein and the gem O Meri Jaan. It got huge praise from critics as well as the listeners. Pritam also got nomination for Best Music in Star Screen Awards along with two other nominations Love Aaj Kal and Ajab Prem Ki Ghazab Kahaani. 2009 was the year when Pritam showed the higher level of his presence in Bollywood and started getting the much deserved respect along with the praise that he always used to get. But sadly, this album didn’t get the respect it needed. One of the Best Romantic albums ever! But the Most Underrated album ever! Because there’s a thick line between the amount of praise it deserved and the amount of praise it actually got. The album which gave birth to some immortal tunes! Vishesh Films’ Best Soundtrack till date!

No Pyaar for this Album! (Karle Pyaar Karle – Music Review)

After that disastrous soundtrack, this is another small album which has some weird sounds. The tracklist is obviously attractive as it has Arijit Singh, the branded voice these days. You seem to feel that you are wrong only when you peep inside the album and find that you are not in a condition

Karle_Pyaar_Karle_Movie_Posterto recognize Arijit’s voice and feel ashamed of calling yourself his biggest fan. That’s the beauty of this album. 

 

 

Music Label: Sony Music

 

 

 

1. Karle Pyaar Karle – Singers: Benny Dayal, Palak Muchhal, Monali Thakur;  Music: Meet Bros Anjjan, Suneel Darshan;  Lyrics: Kumaar, Suneel Darshan

The soundtrack starts with title track. It’s a regular Club track having the usual fast beats and nice techno tunes. It doesn’t have anything new or fresh. The basic tune is also a below average composition. Benny Dayal is being repetitive by getting same genre of songs. It’s good to hear the mixture of two different type of voices Palak Muchhal and Monali Thakur. Their vocals blended perfectly. This can be applied in future also. This track Could have been much better.

 

2. Teri Saason Mein – Singers: Arijit Singh, Palak Muchhal;  Music: Rashid Khan, Suneel Darshan;  Lyrics: Rashid Khan, Suneel Darshan

The song starts with Arabic sound which seems to be quite similar to the intro of Pyaar Mein from Thank You. The composition is quite confusing. The rhythm is fast from the rhythm of usual romantic tracks. The hook tune is the sound of Flute which helps in attracting the listeners. The hook line is damn addictive. Arijit’s vocals sound weird and one cannot recognize his voice very easily. Nice Romantic Track. #WELCOMESONG

 

3. O Darling – Singers: Amit Mishra, Sasha Tirupati;  Music: Prashant Singh;  Lyrics: Shakeel Azmi, Suneel Darshan

It’s a damn damn annoying track. Lyrics are cheap and there’s no specific tune in the whole track. I don’t even understand what instruments are used. Is it Nagada or something? The track is so stale, straight and a kind of bad oppressor for our ears. Singers did their job well but the composition and lyrics play an awful role. Dangerous for ears. 

 

4. Mutasir – Singer: Javed Ali;  Music: Rashid Khan, Suneel Darshan;  Lyrics: Rashid Khan, Suneel Darshan

It has been composed with an utter sweetness with Javed Ali’s vocals contributing more to the sweetness. The line Is Qadar sounds too beautiful but after that song leaves its attraction and comes down to the ordinary level. That ordinary thing makes it a one time listen track. It could retain its charm in the antara but unable to do it. The lyrics has the same scenario. The words sound good in that line but become very ordinary in rest of the song.

 

5. Tanhaai – Singer: Arijit Singh;  Music: Rayyan Ameen;  Lyrics: Arafat Mahmood, Rashid Khan, Suneel Darshan

Some songs belong to the genre Sad. This song belongs to a genre called Depression. It’s a damn weird track. The weirdness is felt just as the song starts. Arijit’s voice is a big LOL. It must be the worst singing of his career. Though he sang perfectly, his voice sounds like a partially damaged robot. Although there’s nothing to listen in this, I applaud the composer for making a different kind of track atleast. Better if you don’t listen.

 

6. Kurbaan – Singers: Natasha Tah, Mumzy Stranger;  Music: Mumzy Stranger;  Lyrics: Suneel Darshan, Mumzy Stranger

Another weird track which is not a proper song but seems to be just a compilation of different types of techno sounds. The sounds which are available on every free sound software. The beats are good but not creative. The singer Natasha’s vocals accurately fitted into place and blended with track perfectly. Her vocals and the techno tunes sounded quite similar. It’s could have been better by composing a proper song along with the techno track. A DJ-ish track. 

 

7. Soni Soni Akkha Nu – Singers: Tamara, Rayyan Ameen;  Music: Rayyan Ameen;  Lyrics: Yusuf Khan, Suneel Darshan

Another title track which is even worse than the former. It’s a very ordinary dance track having not a single interesting element to hear. The singer and composer Rayyan has annoying vocals which make the track totally avoidable. Tamara has very less role though her voice sounded ear friendly and also promising. She should have got more lines to sing. Lyrics is passable and so is the composition. It has full ability to make the DJ floor vacant. 

 

Karle Pyaar Karle is a below average soundtrack. It has some different kinds of tracks and some simple ordinary tracks too. The sound is the main problem in the album. Arijit’s vocals have been misused as recording is awfully done. Some tracks like Teri Saason Mein, Mutasir and Karle Pyaar Karle could have been much better and interesting if more work would be done on them.

 

The Final Verdict:  NOT A PROBLEM
