After Prince if there was one album that has captured me out rightly.. It has to be Kites..
No Nopes not cos it’s a Hrithik movie (Hayeee… hrithik!!!! ) but the sheer good music and awesome rendition of songs.. Though the number of songs in the album is less L but they really do leave their mark.. Rajesh Roshan has proved it yet again that he can give the best to his brother’s movies..
The music a teensy weensy tadly reminiscent of KNPH ESP the title and Na tum jaano Na hum effect.. But all said and done bloody brilliant album… KK rocks in both the soft melodious lilting numbers – Zindagi Do Pal Ki and Dil Kyu Ye Mera… Simply marvelous… These songs goes into my list of all time faves cos I know for sure even if I were to listen them 5 yrs down the line I would still fall in love with them all over again.. Just like I still fall in love with Mann Ki Lagan from Paap… every time I listen to it.. These 2 songs have seized me by my senses and captivated my mind to such an extent that even in my sleep I can hear these songs as if background music is on… errr.. My dreams interspersed with them too
Overall the album gets a 4/5 no not for Hrithik you sillies..C’mon grow up.. Don’t you know Main Shahid Ki Deewani hoon..
But those 2 songs are more than enough to make the album one of my all time favorites…
So go ahead and listen to them guys I’m sure you won’t be disappointed..
Ok now for the detailed review
Zindagi Do pal ki – KK - if I had to choose just one song from this album and say “this is the best” it has to be this one.. Maaann.. Whatte song whatte song.. I’m yet to come out of it.. The day I downloaded and listened to it you won’t believe me I listened to jus this one track continuously for 3 days.. Yes 3 days…
KK at his mellifluous best.. Rajesh Roshan at his mushiest best..What more can I ask for.. Bliss..!!! Absolute Bliss..!A perfect blend of music direction genius and singer’s élan.. This one surely leaves a mark and keeps you yearning for more.. KK has not lost his charm at all.. Infact he has managed to weave a brand new version of himself.. I have never heard him sound like this before.. Till date he was given songs that worked on his high range potentiality but this time.. It was more on the base.. And not just that he sounds different.. So un-KK-ish and yet manages to leave you spellbound…I’m dying to see Hrithik in this song.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Dil Kyu mera ~ KK- the second best song in this album,… KK proves his mettle again.. A soul stirring love song.. I believe many of you might have already seen/heard this one in the promos of the movie.. This one simply melts in your ears.. Music is as usual simply superb.. Enticing and yet soothing.. The guitar notes do tend to capture your sense… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Tum bhi ho wahi ~ Vishal dadlani Suraj Jagan – this one’s a nice breezy number.. A little fast paced.. The music is definitely nice.. A slight acapella effect to it..Loved the overall effect.. A perfect song for those recently fallen in love.. There’s not much I feel to write about the song.. I mean this one dint affect me as much as I loved the previous 2.. After listening to that this sounds a tad feeka (bland).. But definitely worth a listen.. CERTIFIED LISTENABLE
Kites in the Sky ~ Suzanne DMello and Hrithik Roshan – yes you read it write.. Its indeed sung by Hrithik himself… aaww.. Maaann… whatte voice.. No sillies.. No bias here… a very subtle lilting start slowly goes on a soprano-ish effect.. And thankfully unlike other Actor-turned-singers.. Hrithik’s masculine voice is like a breath of fresh air… I wouldn’t say he sings like a professional I don’t want you guys hunting me down and throwing stones on me… but compared to the other actor-singers HR def is a good find.. And the sheer fact that it’s English lyrics acts as a positive thing going for him.. He has sung this song beautifully.. The whole effect of the song is such that it stirs your soul.. Plays with your heart strings.. Soft n lilting.. Like a feather caressing.. Aaahhh.. BLISS..!! CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Fire (Hindi)- Rajesh Roshan Vishal Dadlani - nice fast paced number.. Perfect danceable track.. Very peppy.. More music less words.. But the music makes up for the lack of words and packs the punch home.. Awesome mixing effects.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Zindagi remix – as usual my typical funda applies here.. When I like the original its but obvious that I love the remixes too.. Though I’m generally against remixes but when they are don’t tactfully and present the song in a whole new manner I love them.. And DJ Amyth has done a fab job on this.. there are some remixes that you like more than the original itself for e.g. Bakhuda tumhi ho from kismet konnection this is one of those that manages to enrapture your senses and captivate your mind with its superb rendition.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Dil kyu mera remix – same funda applies to this one too.. Infact I feel the remix version is more alluring than the original itself.. No that does not mean the original is not nice.. If the original is superb.. This is supersplendofantabulous
I hope you get what I mean now.. CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Tum BHI HO wahi – remix.. The remix is good.. But just as I said about the original.. There’s not much to write about the song.. Maybe when I see Hrithik grooving on screen I might just about have something to drool over this song too as of now this stands CERTIFIED LISTENABLE
Fire – English - just like the Hindi version this one is bereft of lyrics as such.. Just a few lines but then the music as I said adds the zeal and zing that’s required… this is one of those tracks which are perfect for those long lazy drives on a drizzly night.. Simply zabraakooo CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN
Overall this goes right into my list of all time fave albums.. Trust me every song is pretty much worth it..
And no, no biases on I being a Hrithik movie.. After all I’m still truthful and sincere to my Shahid.. But as swetha asked me decide once and for all Hrithik or Shahid..
And I said Shahid of course but how can one forget your first love…??
Temme temme.. If Shahid is my present then Hrithik is my past.. He is my first love and how can you forget your first love..That’s impossible.. Right
So go ahead guys listen up the album.. I would say it’s one of the best albums this year.. For me it rules even Prince that I so highly recommended to you all..Cos I have been glued to this album since the day I downloaded which is like more than 2 weeks now..
That clearly explains how enamored I am with this one… and the KK songs are more than enough to keep me glued for hours.. Imagine 24X7 I’m tuned to this for more than 15 days.. Which is like
Moreover the lyrics are really simple..Not too much usage of heavy words.. Just plain simple Hindi… and that just adds to the music.. Rajesh Roshan and KK *thumbs up*
Over all album – CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN :mrgreen:
That’s it from Megzone for now..
