No, it’s never easy to comment on a song composed by Rahman. Reasons are many. For one, they’re never ‘bad.’ You’ll always like them at least a bit even if at the start they sound strangest thing in the world. Secondly, he has built so high reputation and expectations in people’s minds that it’s not easy to get to that level even with the best songs. And then, he has so many fans. But the worst thing is that u can not always be sure of disliking a song of his. Probably that is why he is Rahman.
Anyway, here is a review of his new album, Jhootha hi Sahi.
The album starts with the child’s play called Cry Cry. A song that is going to be a hit simply because of it’s simplicity. Though I didn’t like the lyrics of the song much, the message the song gives is good and Rashid Ali and Shreya’s singing is sweet. Not too good in terms of music, but a likeable thing.

Robot, the Hindi version of Rajnikant-Aishwarya’s Enthiran was a much waited album, composed by A R Rahman. Here is a review of the album.
The album starts with O Naye Insaan and you get to know that this Robot is going to be actually robotic. The song anyhow sounds good as Srinivas croons in two almost different voices, doing the awesome work that is done by two people in Tamil and Telugu. The song has a deep electronic effect and you can feel you’re listening to some sci-fi music. The song is mechanical from the very start and the beginning is the most interesting, I’d say addictively so. But the lyrics are too tough and I doubt many people would be able to understand much in the first few times. Khatija, Rahman’s daughter who sings for the first time here, sounds like a child and I guess it’ll take some time before she should come to sing full-fledged.

I have been thinking of writing music review of Lamhaa for quite some time now but every time I get stuck to Madhno and forget to move ahead of the song. So, here comes the late review of the album.
The album starts with Madhno re, a slow, soft, romantic, typical Mithoon song, sung by his favorite, Kshitij Tarey along with Chinmayee. Kshitij sings Mithoon’s tune in a soulful way and the song comes out to be superb. And then, Tu hi to har pal bandha hai, lamhon ki in zanjeeron mein.. just awesome singing by Chinmayee.

The combination might sound strange to you. But here you see the advent of a new Mika Singh, at least for one song. And that’s the other version of Lamhaa’s already hit song, Madhno. The Mika version.
More than anything else, the song comes as a surprise as Mika sings for Mithoon with Chinmayee. The surprise comes as a pleasant one as Mika renders the song quite good and well in control and doesn’t go mad anywhere. The way he ends his Saajnaa sounds like a usual ‘singer’ and you really wonder if it’s him. But then, the voice is almost unmistakable.
Chinmayee is as good in this version too as in the other one. The other difference of the two versions is that this one has lyrics completely in Hindi.
Well, as I said, Mithoon is back with Lamhaa. And here is the first song of the album, out there. Sung by Mithoon (as far as I can guess) and Chinmayee (as per sources), madhno re is an instantly likable song. The best part of the song is that it is Mithoon’s type, it’s good, but it doesn’t sound repetitive. In short, I am loving the song already, check it for yourself.
Sanjay Dutt’s long pending Lamhaa is finally about to release. Lamhaa’s music will be out soon too. And my guess is, it will be worth waiting for. After a long gap, Mithoon is coming back with Lamhaa and this time he’s coming up with almost all new singers, for him that is.
This time Mithoon’s album is going to feature Rahman’s old favorite Chinmayee in at least two songs while in one of the songs she will be singing with Mika Singh. Another song in the album is given to Palash Sen of Euphoria while he also brings pop-singer Arun Daga for a song. Besides all these singers, Mithoon will be singing himself for the album too.
Here is the track list of Lamhaa:
01 – Madhno Re – Chinmayee, Kshitij Tarey
02 – Salaam Zindagi – Arun Daga
03 – Main Kaun Hoon – Dr. Palash Sen
04 – Saajnaa – Mika Singh, Chinmayee
05 – Zameen O Aasmaa
06 – Rehmat Zara – Mithoon
