(REVIEW of the album Karthik Calling Karthik is HERE.)
Karthik calling Karthik is the new movie of Farhan Akhtar and Deepika Padukone directed by Vijay Lalwani. The music, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, will be out on 18th January 2010. The promos of the movie are already out and we already have good reviews on Hey ya, the first song out.
So here is a preview of the music album, with some guesses as to what it may have to offer.
Karthik Calling Karthik is an album with total nine tracks, that is five songs, one instrumental theme and three remixes. Interestingly though, the remixes are expected to be more than mere 1.2x original song as Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy’s last remix, that of Wake up Sid title was at least as good as the original song. Also, the remix of the album’s opener Uff teri Adaa is sung by Loy and Clinton Cerejo with Shankar while the original song is sung by Shankar alone.
Sources say that the song is a wonderful one and hence I am waiting for it to arrive. The second song of the album Hey Ya is already up and running. Going by the song, the album has to be wonderful anyway. Third song of the album gets even more interesting as the singer’s name happens to be KK. The song is called Jaane ye Kya hua and is sung by KK as a solo. That makes me wait again as Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy rarely bring in KK for their songs, in fact I don’t remember any of their songs together other than Koi Kahe, Jhoom Barabar and it’s the time to disco which all had him as part of group.
Kaisi hai ye udasi. What do the words remind you of? Nothing? OK. The song is sung by Kailash Kher. Now? Reminds me of Ya Rabba. I loved the song a lot. And I hope I get one more from KCK.
The fifth and the last original song of the movie is Karthik calling Karthik which should be a Rock inclined number as far as I can see since it’s the title song of a thriller kind of movie and the singers are Suraj Jagan and Shankar Mahadevan with Caralisa Monteiro. If you let me take another guess, Caralisa should be kind of backing in the song.
Besides, there is a Karthik theme which reminds me of Akash theme and I expect it to be the one for sad, simple Karthik. At least.
After that, as I said, there are three remixes of Uff teri adaa, Karthik calling Karthik, and Hey Ya. And yes, the lyrics for all the songs are written by Javed Akhtar, oops, Akthar. That is the spelling I have seen in all promos yet. Karthikized one, is it?
Having said this, I am waiting for the album as badly as you are now.
