Well … Saw the promos when I went to watch I Hate Luv Storys and I somehow felt it was a remake of some English/Spanish movie not sure though..Later Wikipedia revealed its based on Emma by Jane Austen.. The song that accompanied it – Suno Aisha… Did strike me interesting and had made me wait and make sure I get my hands on the album.. And I must say I am Not Disappointed.. 2-3 songs are really worth the whole album.. The music director Amit Trivedi seems to have taken the B-wood by storm now.. Most of his latest songs have been well received.. Though a couple of songs at some places sounded evocative to english songs but since I am not able to point my finger on the exact song I cant say they are lifts/remakes or anything.. But songs like Suno Aisha, Sham, Behke Behke and Lehrein are awesome numbers the last being the most soulful one with ample usage of Violin.. Singer Anushka has had a ball of a time cos she has got some lovely songs.. But somehow I would like to hear a melody or ballad from her than the usual perky numbers.. Anusha Mani I guess bein introduced in this cos I haven’t heard her before has done a beautiful job with Lehrein and Amit Trivedi himself does complete justice to the title track.. Overall it’s a lovely Album.. I give it a 3/5.. not being liberal.. But I just feel there cant be more to it 🙂
Behke behke – Anushka Manchanda – Starts with a peppy LATINO influence.. and yes the moment it starts im already tapping my foot and nodding/shaking my head..Anushka suits this song to the T. I don’t know if its just me but somehow in some places the song reminded me of Main Albeli from Zubaida.. either its true or my ears are ringing.. but the song is definitely something that can keep you engrossed.. I see a lil bit of flamenco effect in the song.. the lyrics are good.. the lines – Behke behke mann keep running in my mind inspite of the song finishes. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
By the way – Anushka Manchanda – This ones again a nice peppy number.. in some areas it reminded me of 10 on 10 from Pyar Impossible.. err.. maybe cos both were sung by Anushka but nonetheless I liked this one.. I like the places where she says Jaane Do Chodo Bhi.. The ample use of guitar enhances the effect of the song… The lyrics depict of just live life don’t think…this ones not much of a dance number but definitely recommended for the party and karaoke nights..Cos I love the beats and the claps that come in.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE
Gal Mitthi Mitthii – Tochi Raina – ok now I am not much impressed with this on hearing it 2-3 times.. but sometimes there are songs where the videos make them likeable.. For people who like Punju songs they are sure to like this one.. No I aint against punju songs but somehow ye kuch raas nai aaya.. L so for me its nothing great.. but somehow I feel when I see the song I might start liking.. and yes this might jus go on to become the next marriage song.. well its not about marriage but the mere punju effect is sure to make ppl dance to it.. frankly this don’t impress me much.. CERTIFIED MISSABLE..
Lehrein ~ Anusha Mani, Neuman Pinto, Nikhil Dsouza – I just loved this one.. starts with Violin and that has me mesmerized already.. Completely Awesomee….the song jus flows and makes u sway too.. Generally the violin usage in a song depicts grief but this song seems more abt solitude/loneliness but doesnt take u into any depressive mode.. you are sure gonan love this one 😀 CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Sham ~ Nikhil Dsouza, Amit Trivedi Neuman Pinto – This one in someways reminds me of an English ong but I am not able to place my finger on it.. minimalist music and the guitar usage has me swaying and flowing.. Sometimes reminds me of the LIMCA ad song..Perfect for a nice rainy evening with a hot cup of tea watchin the droplets hit the glass pane.. or else perfect for a night.. clear sky.. moonlight penetrating throw the windows and ur snuggled tight in bed 😀 and stars peeping out silently..Blisss…!!! CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Suno Aisha ~ Amit Trivedi – I like this one.. it’s a very cute song.. Amit’s voice melts like icecream.. Yes ye s ice-cream indeed.. Foot tapping music.. me the likes me the likes.. This ones already making rounds on TV and many have already expressed their liking for this one.. Theres one small Flute bit in the middle that really makes it cute.. This again I don’t know why I feel is reminiscent of a song I have heard before.. Either cos the name Aisha sounds similar to Alisha in Pyar Impossible I don’t know but I do feel I have heard the tune before.. but nonetheless I love it 😀 and hence CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Lehrein Remix – DJ Lloyd and Discreet – I love this one too.. Though it’s a remix its one of those versions that are perfect for those lonnggg drives/travel on a rainy day.. I loved the original and I love this one too J CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Gal Mithi Mithi ~ Tochi Raina – another remix another version.. Dint like the original not yet..not till I watch the video and give it another consideration and so as of now CERTIFIED MISSABLE..
Overall I give it a 3/5.. not very impressive but definitely not the missable types.. you definitely can listen to Behke Behke, Lehrein and Suno Aisha.. Sham is good too but not too striking initially but the more u listen to it.. the more you fall in love with it.. So that’s for AISHA a 3/5..
That’s it from Megzone for now..!!
