The music of the upcoming movie Anjaana Anjaani is out in stores now and is ruling the charts as well. The music has been composed by the duo of Vishal-Shekhar who have given some great albums like I hate Luv Storys, Dostana, Bachna Ae Hasino in the recent past.
The album has a variety of voices as well as music style which ranges from semi-classical to rock and typical Bollywood masala music. There are altogether 9 tracks in the albums which includes two remixed songs- aas paas khuda and tujhe bhula diya.
Aas paas khuda has good words and deep voice of Rahat fateh Ali Khan carries it nicely supported by the female voice of Shruti pathak. The song is melodious and the use of various classical instruments creates positive vibrations which the lyrics aims to. The ‘unplugged’ version is good as well.
Anjaana anjaani ki kahani sung by Nikhil D’Souja and Monali Thakur is fast in pace and has youthful touch. This song is being liked by the younger lot. It throws a fun-filled sound which the singers have sung in full enjoyment. Not great lyrics but music and singing style are good reasons to go for it.
Anjaana Anjaani has been sung by Vishal himself along with Shilpa Rao. This is also a song which has good music and there is less stress on the lyrics. An average song, still likeable one.
Hairat is one of the best songs of the album which Lucky Ali has sung. This song is like a ballad with soothing voice of Lucky Ali. Lucky Ali has sung a song after a while and he proves that he is still a great singer.
I feel good is another average song as far as the singing and music goes. It seems a drag and is boring. Neither the lyrics nor the music is great enough to attract ears. Though it is a personal perception and one should not be judgmental about a work of creativity still the song doesn’t stand ground against other good songs of the album.
Tujhe bhula diya has two versions which includes a remix. This particular song is the best song of the album as far as the charts and popularity goes. Mohit Chauhan has sung his heart out along with Shekhar Ravjiani and Shruti pathak. The mix of classical instruments with the western and the seamless switch over between the two styles make the song great. Even the remix version is great, people want to listen both the version which alone makes the song a success.
Tumse hi tumse has been sung by Shekhar Ravjiani and Caralisa Monterio. This song is bilingual with Hindi and English words. Caralisa has sung nicely and has a good voice. Shekhar supports her voice but this song is another of the low profile songs.
Overall the album is a good buy with 5 good songs.
