      At first look, one is surprised to see 15 tracks in this album, but a closer second look reveals that all in all there are some 6 songs in all and the rest are just different versions of the same songs.

      Marjaani is the Bollywood pulsating track, Turkish strains with room for jhatkas galore, set to typical Gulzar lyrics (with a 'Khasmaanu Khaaye' here and an 'auni pauni' tucked in there). Dance number 1, sung to effect by Sukhwinder and Sunidhi, the perfect choices for this one.

      Next comes, Love Mera Hit Hit, which is the western dance floor number. With spiffy beats this one is for the night clubs and discotheques. You can't listen to this one, without moving your body to the beats. Neeraj Sridhar and Tulsi Kumar do a great job.

      Khudaya Khair is the softer track set to the strumming of the accoustic guitar and an indian beat. A pretty number and the pick of the album so to say, and Soham does a good job, but one misses Sonu here. Wouldn't have minded a slightly slower pace in the song as well, to do justice to the lyrics and the mood of the song. The singers seem to be in a bit of a hurry to sing to beat.

      In fact the reprise of the same song with Abhijeet singing, is a good listen too. Here again a slower pace might have given Abhijeet the window to showcase the full potential of his exquisite voice and taken the song to the next level.

      You Get Me Rocking & Reeling is a rap version of Khudaya Khair. Neeraj Sridhar does a good job of making the track his own, though.

      Ae Aa O is the rock number which is a little too noisy for comfort. Nothing new brought to the table with this one, in fact it reminds one of some English oldies.

      Billu Bhayankar is the homegrown folk number which is true to its purpose and entertaining as well.

      All in all too many combinations of the same few songs for comfort. It is like stretching a paragraph to fill a whole page in order to give the reader (in this case the listener) value for money.
