    • Jannat music rating: 9 out of 10(Vinayak wrote on Nov 14 2009 9:11AM)

      The very first track comes in the form of ‘Zara Si’ which is a powerful romantic song sung by KK. KK gets into the shoes of a protagonist who is desperate to get the love of his life and expresses how much he loves her. The best part of the song comes when the chorus goes “Woooo..oooo” at the end of each stanza. This song is a readymade chartbuster, adding to Emraan’s list of hit music!

      Its time for some heart breaking sad song ‘Judai’, which has been composed by Kamran Ahmed, who has also done the lyrics and vocals for this one. The first four lines are totally similar to the old ‘Lambi Judai’ song, but the song makes a mark none the less!

      Pritam goes Indian, with ‘Haan Tu Hain’ which has KK returning to the mic. This romantic song has a typical Indian feel to it where the protagonist thanks his love for always being there with him, during his good and bad times. KK is too good here, and has another chartbuster after Zara Si in the same album.

      A soft, soothing and slow melody crops in, regarding the parting away of the lovers as Rana Mazumdar gets behind the mic for ‘Door Naa Jaa’. Pritam comes to his true side this time around with some rock beats and guitaring playing in this song. This song moves at a very slow n steady and hence will take time to grow on you, but nonetheless a very good song.

      OHH! Now get ready for some really heavy music that is coming to blow you away from the word ‘go’. ‘Jannat Jahan’ makes its way and how. The song is a total hardcore song, and Pritam successfully implements in all that it takes to make a pure rock song. He doesn’t go wrong with the vocalist (Rupam Islam) who makes sure he brings in life to this lively, freaky rock song. He freaks out completely, along with Pritam as the composer and the end result is you have a rocking, freaky song!!

      Judai returns once again, but this time titled as ‘Lambi Judai’ which has been rendered by Richa Sharma. Comparitively, the male one sounds better, but Richa doesn’t disappoint either. The song is quite slower in pace than the male and the instruments have also been reduced in this version. Nonetheless, this song impresses.

      The best part of the album comes in the form of ‘Zara Si (Power Ballad)’. Reading the title, one may be mislead to the fact that it is a powerful rock version of the romantic song, but hey that is not so. Indeed it is a sad version of the previous, with sad lyrics. KK sings this one too and fully impresses. Pritam manages to create two totally different versions of the same song, and while the romantic one will catch up with the masses, this version is the one to watch out for. AWESOME!

      The album ends with a remix version of Judai, titled ‘Judai (Kilogram Mix)’. Unlike others, this remix version sounds good and one doesn’t mind giving it a repeated hearing. A good remix on the whole.

      On the whole, Jannat is another success story coming from the Pritam-Bhatts combination. Not even a single track disappoints while ‘Zara Si (Power Ballad) is a must listen track for every music lover’.

      Must Buy!!
