Khan~Dont Impress Me Much…!!

After hearing a superfab album like Ishqiya.. MNIK kinda falls flat..

SPlaattchhh..!!! On the face with a big bloody nose..!!!

With all due respect to shankar Ehsaan Loy… and Kjo and Shahrukh and Kajol.. but this album is not nothing great to talk about…

Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy have given us superb numbers before..We’ve had some awesome songs churned out by this trio..  But they seem to be getting stuck in a rut… The numbers are reminiscent of their previous songs..  Simply put this album lacks opulence… This is not something you would expect from the SEL gang… I mean cmon these are the same people who gave us Rock On… who gave us WUS.. Who gave us  KHNH, KANK and many others.. But this album falls flat on the face.. Nothing great to offer..

I would give it just a 2/5 which is being generous cos bearing a couple of songs like  Allah E Rehem(which again is reminiscent of the Veer Zaara song) and Sajda(which sounds like the only original number) there’s nothing great to talk about…

Sigh..!! Anyways as usual here’s the detailed analysis

~~

Alaah hi rehem – Sufi number simply marvelous.. I remember when I did the Kurbaan review some people commented saying Sufi numbers are generally a class apart esp those number that have Allah, Maula and Ali in them… and this song just proves it right .. though it is reminiscent of the Qawwali number from Veer Zaara this one is one of the best this album has to offer… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Khan Theme – nice lilting music.. Though it reminds me a wee bit of the background music we had in K3G when Hrithik was hunting down SRK – nice one but.. MISSABLE

Noor e khuda – pleasant number.. Though it has some slight influence of Mitwa meets Mission Kashmir (oh! Remember the starting of Ring Poshmal – Jahaan Zarra zarra mehekega..blah blah blah) 😛 with Adnan’s impeccable rendition.. This is a lovely number… but somehow that don’t impress me much.. Maybe I gotta listen it…there are some songs that take time to grow on you.. They slowly make you like them as u listen to them a couple of times… I’m sure this is gonna be one of those that might climb the charts soon.. And Shreya is the cherry topping on this slurpilcioous cake 😀 CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Rang de – reminiscent of WAKE UP SID.. In more than many places.. The title song of WUS.. Very very reminiscent and yes since I liked that I like this one too 😛 so it’s a nice listen… CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

Sajda – bloody brill number this one is.. No wonder KJO released this one first.. This is superfantasmashingbulous.. And Raahat Fateh Ali is as usual a complete delight to listen.. This is one number definitely not missable 😀 CERTIFIED MUST MUST LISTEN

Tere Naina – another sufiyaana feel… the song is a nice soft number.. The starting reminds me of that song from Veer Zaara which never made it to the movie and was even discarded from the album I guess (Tum paas aa rahe ho – it was a ghazal).. this sounds a tad Qawwali-ish also.. it’s a nice feel good song.. but nothing great.. Nothing out of the world..sigh..!! CERTIFIED LISTENABLE

~~

Overall I would say the album is just about ok.. nothing great like their previous albums.. seems to me SEL’s losing touch..!! Oh ! please don’t let that happen guys I love your music.. cmon please get back with a bang.. give us some lovely zabrakoo numbers to cherish..

The Album doesn’t even live upto the hype that the movie has created.. pretty lackluster I must say..I expected SEL and KJo to give us better songs..ouCH..!!! I know all true blue KJo, SRK, SEL and Kajol fans are gonna stare daggers at me… but trust me I love them all..I’m someone who has watched K3g umpteen times and still love it..I’m someone who has watched DDLJ atleast once a day for 50 days when the movie released… I have listened to the songs of SEL as if they are my daily prayers.. And yet I dint feel this album was anything great.. Sorry Guys..!! But THAT DON’T IMPRESS ME MUCH..!!

Dulha Mil Gaya..!!!

Naa naa naa…. no marital-matrimonial post… puh-leaseeee….

After troubling you guys with my crazy dream 😛

Here’s me actually with the review of the movie album,…

Music by Lalit Pandit…

This time I’l give you my overall view of the album and then proceed to give the song wise minutiae..

I know most of you might have heaved a sigh of relief and that’s precisely the reason for this leniency 😉

That doesn’t mean il be so generous always 😈

Kkiieekkiieekkiiee :mrgreen:

Ok so now the overview…

Welll the songs are pretty good… listenable numbers… keeping in atmosphere of the title of the movie intact… most of the songs are those typical breezy ceremonial numbers,… but before you shake your head or roll your eyes… lemme tell you the numbers are good ones.. not the usual shor-sharaba… but that doesn’t mean tht there isn’t any… only it’s a tad more polished…  Some songs are reminiscent of other older numbers on similar lines… but I would still give the album a 2.5/5 its not that bad also… cos I have been listening to this album continuously from the time I have downloaded which is more than 30+odd hours so I can say that it is definitely worthwhile… the best songs or MUST LISTEN numbers are

Tune Jo jaan Le  by Sonu Nigam (reasons read below 😉 )

Rang Diya Dil –  Shreya Ghoshal (reasons obvious)

Akela Dil – Anushka Manchanda, Mahua Kamat, Adnan Sami (different and cute)

Poooff….thats an overall view…

Now for the detailed analysis 😀

Me being me can’t do without this… u guys know me by now  😉

Aaja Aaja Mere Ranjhana ~ Swananda and Anushka Manchanda… What happens when you mix Bole Chudiya and Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham title tracks..??? well.. that’s wat this song is…. I wont admo0nish it as being a remake or anything its quite good actually… listenable indeed… but then all songs in this album are 🙄 i’m sure this is gonna move mere haathon mein nau nau chudiyaan and other marriage songs away.. LISTENABLE

Magar Meri Jaan Anushka Manchanda, Mahua Kamat, Lalit Pandit – this is a nice westernized number… the song has influence of Gale Lag Jaa from De Dana Dan… Anushka as usual is herself… and Mahua has done a superb job too… this is a typical song where they transform the demure heroine into a damsel aka ooh laa laa types…. Remember Amrita Rao in Main Hoon Naa… oh if you’re wondering why do I say this… welll wat more can I expect when I have lyrics like Samarpreet ban jayegi Samara… LISTENABLE

Tu Jo Jaan le Sonu Nigam….Hayeee… the mere fact that’s its sung by Sonu is enough to want to download and listen to this one… but this is indeed on of the best numbers in the movie.. lilting… melodious… awesomely splendid… remember the haunting effect of Dastaan E Om Shanthi Om from OSO… this is on similar lines… Sonu is his mellifluous best J bringing out the effect of a person in love and yet someone whose yearning to tell his love too… the sudden shift of the music in moments from the yearning mode to the anguish mode is marvelously put.. im dying to give a +1 for this song… superb guitar usage…  CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Rang Diya Dil Shreya Ghosal… Again reason enuff to download and listen… but Shreya maaannn… she rocks…. And m glad SLB(Sanjay Leela Bhansali) discovered her… she’s a boon to the singing industry… her voice is simply magical in this song… its such a lilting… soft… heartwarming number… a typical gal fantasizing about her guy types… it has a rustic old world charm to it… as in I mean the later 90s early 2000s ke songs ka effect… the gaaon ki chori wala effect… m not sure how many remember a movie called HAMESHA (Saif n Kajol disaster) there was a song in tht… this in some ways reminds me of tht… CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN 😀

Dilrubaon ka Jalwe Amit Kumar Manoli Thakkar – Amit kumar brings in a breath of fresh air from these chaos of new singers… with due respect to them all.. its always endearing to hear someone who sounds like Kishore Kumar any day 😀 this is a Qawaali-ish number complete with the harmonium effect… with a tadka of rap pop… remember SRK’s Wicked act in Main Hoon Naa’s tumse milke dil ka hai ye haal number… similar… it’s a typical Men are from Mars Women are from Venus wala jhagda/nakhra Qawaali stuff… nice to listen though… esp wen amit goes “mishi mishi shab angool huye” he sounds chooo chweeeettt….  And Manoli Thakkar with her accented Hindi is fairly listenable too … J I think this should be the one picturised on Sush and SRK cos towards the end of the song they are actually arguing with each other’s FILM titles… that are nice to hear actually… LISTENABLE song

Rang Diya Dil Sad – Shreya… Emoted to perfection… need I say more… 😀 its shreya again..

Dulha Mil Gaya – Daler Mehndi – Yo maaan… Daler Rocks… need I say more… he’s been one singer I have always liked from him Tararara to RDB…. But trust me nothing to beat his RDB number…. Even thinking about it makes me go TINGALINGALINGALINGALING TINGALINGALINGALINGALING  (picture me nodding head feverishly with eyes closed 😀 ) that song was a Class Apart… and this one to is going down in my list of Daler hits 😀 yep I liked it too… its nice n fast paced.. its the typical bakra halaal hone wala hai type of songs… wat with lyrics like.. aaj phir gur ke liye ganna chil gaya-dulha mil gaya dulha mil gaya… LISTENABLE..

Akela DilAdnan Sami, Anushka Manchanda– lovely song… I loved it… it’s a nice peppy spunky fun song… with Adnan in his full josh… it has a nice hip-hop meets lounge feel to it… and Adnan’s back with a bang… and I don’t need any more reasons to like this songs 😀  but bein an impartial person (don’t rub ur eyes.. I’m impartial ok).. The music is cute… foot tapping…groovy…a Beyonce meets Rihanna meets PCD kinda number… this makes me wanna do the smooth criminal act the MJ did 😀  CERTIFIED MUST LISTEN

Shiri FarhadNeeraj Sridhar and Tulsi Kumar –  this is another typical Neeraj song.. Peppy-catchy-foot –tapping-head nodding-song.. 🙂 the music is cute too… though again this is one song that reminds me some other song… that I’m not able to place my finger on.. 🙄  its a typical Neeraj Sridhar number.. so his fans rejoice….definitely LISTENABLE

There are 3 more remixes apart from these remixes of DMG,  Dilrubaon ke Jalwe and Akela Dil.. Those are listenable numbers too… not a bad choice of songs and frankly all listenable numbers…  😀

You guys can def download the MUST LISTEN ones and maybe listen up LISTENABLE ones before downloading them 😀

Thats it for now 🙂

Until next time, this is megz signing off from Megzone…
