Hum Tum aur Ghost: Music Review

Shankar Ehsaan Loy have become a music factory this year. Before the score of one movie starts fading, they come up with the next. This time it’s Hum tum aur ghost, starring Arshad Warsi and Diya Mirza. With lyrics from Javed Akhtar again. Here is a review.

Dekho Raste mein is a fast, peppy, but nevertheless romantic number that sounds good with KK and Shreya singing wonderfully. Though I feel the song would have sounded better had it been a bit slower. (I have tried the song at 90% and it does sound good) Anyway a lovable song. Go for it.

Sadiyaan: Music Review

Raj Kanwar’s Sadiyaan has Adnan Sami as its music director. Now while most of the songs of the song are quite usual, Adnan ropes in a lot of singers in what seems like a try to make it look varied. Many of the song can also be found using Adnan’s trademark Tabla/other instruments with restrains, somewhat like in Bheegi Bheegi raaton mein or most songs of Lucky. The only thing I liked in the compositions of Adnan here is that the tunes are mostly melodious and some of his songs are likable even with his typical style’s strong presence.

Waqt ne jo beej boya: Sadiyaan (Rekha Bharadwaj)

So after Rahman, Sajid-Wajid and even Dabboo Malik, Adnan Sami comes up with a tune he thinks deserves the voice of Rekha Bharadwaj and gives her an eight minute and forty seconds long Sadiyaan ve, credited as Waqt ne jo beej boya, on the cover of the album, Sadiyaan.

Click: Music Review

Doorie….

Yup, Click starts exactly on the same note as Shamir Tandon’s first composition Rubaayi starts exactly like Atif’s Doorie even though it changes its path early. The song though is good, and all singers, especially Sunidhi sound well. Lyrics of the song are slightly better than average for a usual love song. Overall, other than Atif effect the opening song of Click is not bad.

Chance pe Dance: Movie Review

It’s predictable. It’s typical, old Bollywood material, with hardly anything new. As they say, Kahani poori filmi hai. It doesn’t have absolutely stunning performances. But Chance pe Dance is watchable, at least if you have nothing better to do, or, if you are a fan of Shahid’s dance.

Noor e Khuda (My Name is Khan)

Ujde se lamhon ko aas teri
Zakhmi dilon ko hai pyaas teri
Har dhadkan ko talaash teri
Tera milta nahin hai pata..

Remember that ‘Sach hai ki dil to dukha hai‘ sung by Sonu Nigam in Kal ho na ho? I record them as one of the very best lines of Sonu Nigam. In Noore-Khuda, Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy go on the same lines, trying it with Shreya this time. This time it’s done in a main track instead of a slow/sad version and I hope the words are pictured perfectly by Karan Johar.

My Name is Khan: Music Review

2010 is turning out to be great in terms of music. While Veer was unexpectedly good, Ishqiya was HUGE and My Name is Khan is not disappointing either. The album, composed by Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy, has six songs, no remixes, Shankar Mahadevan in three of them but none sung alone by him. Names of Rahat Fateh Ali Khan, Shafqat Amanat Ali, and Rashid Khan make clear from the very start that the album is majorly Sufi. Here is a review of MNIK.

Chance pe Dance: Music Review

It’s different. It’s all about dance and you’ll get to know that when you get to hear the songs. Composer Adnan Sami, who composes all the songs of the movie except ‘Just Do it’, has tried to make the songs catchy and energetic but hasn’t been very successful in making things all good. In some songs he’s good, in some just okay and sometimes failure. Here is a review of CPD music, in Alphabetical order of songs.

Ek Ladki Deewani Si (Adnan Sami): Music Review

When Adnan Sami came, he was a hit because he was new and fresh. Now Adnan Sami is lost because he is not new anymore and he is not bringing much new. Probably that’s the reason he keeps on doing small experiments and this time comes with the brother of deceased legendary Michael Jackson, Jermaine Jackson.

Adnan’s new album, Ek Ladki Deewani si has nine songs including one remix of Mumbai City. While all the songs are composed by Adnan himself songs are arranged and programmed by John Stewart and even Salim-Sulaiman, except for Mumbai City which is programmed by Jermaine himself.
