AA SUN LE ZARA - BUT NOT ZYAADA
At first listen, the album disappoints, specially when is expecting a good soundtrack.
The music by Gourav Dasgupta sounds repetitive and has a sameness running through the songs that make the album sounds like a continuous remix station!
The title track, Aa Dekhen Zara, lacks the punch of the original song. At best it sounds like a Techno remix of the old R. D. foot tapping number. Even Neil Nitin Mukesh singing himself, fails to liven up this number. On the other hand, the Lounge version of this track by Dibyendu Mukherjee sounds a lot better.
Rock the Party and Power have a sound like second generation remixes, even though they are original songs.
The redeeming feature of this album are the two numbers by Pritam Chakarborty. Mohabbat Aapse by Akruti Kakkar has a very Nazia Hassan feel to it and sounds good. This is that one number that you'll feel like coming back to in the album.
Gazab has two seasoned singers Sunidhi and Shaan giving it all they've got and this one also stays with you. It is borrows a portion of the old song from the yesteryears 'Do Hanson Ka Joda...Gazab bhayo Rama Julam Bhayo Re'.
This album in totality fails to elicit subsequent listens, except for these two tracks.
