Remember the mysterious sound of the 70s, tuning 'Dhan Te Nan'?? Yup, that sound has been converted into a full fledged song as 'Dhan Te Nan' marks the beginning of the album and what a way to do so! A hardcore dance number, it has vocals by two of the most powerful voiced singers Sukhwinder Singh & Vishal Dadlani along with some rap by Robert Bob. Freaky was the requirement of the song and the singers provide exactly that! A runaway CHARTBUSTER!!
There is also a remix version for Dhan Te Nan which is not a typical remix we listen to but instead a remix with some hip hop beats added.
The romantic voice of Mohit Chouhan comes into play as he croons 'Pehli Baar Mohabbat'. This soothing melody starts off slowly but reaches its peak point within a minute, which is the strongest point of the song. This song will surely go down as a romantic song to be remembered for a long time.
Time for some fun, with 'Raat Ke Dhai Baje' as Rekha Bharadwaj comes in along with Sunidhi Chauhan. Not just two female singers, but two male ones join in too as Suresh Wadekar and Sukhwinder Singh croon this fun filled yet a bit romantic song. This one does take time to grow on you but churns out to be a good no. It appears once again in the remix version, which isn't that good and thus is passable.
Next we have 'Fatak' which is a song concerning the AIDS awareness. This Sukhwinder Singh & Kailash Kher number has a slight touch of folk to it. But the best part of this song is definitely the lyrics of the song penned by Gulzar Saab. The way he pens down the message about Aids awareness in this track is commendable!
Magic of Gulzar Saab continues in the next track 'Kaminey' too. A sad song, sung by the director-composer Vishal Bharadwaj himself, it is a track with a western feel to it. It is hard to carry out the lyrics around such a word, but Gulzar excels in here. Not to forget, this is the best track from the album!
To end this beautiful album in the offering, you are treated with a two minute instrumental piece formed round the 'Dhan Te Nan' tune of the 70s. 'Go Charlie Go' is a fantastically composed theme music and is the best way to bid goodbye to such an album!
On the whole, Kaminey is a bit different from the league. It is composed of some really chartbuster songs and some innovative ones which might take time to grow on you, but once it does, there is no looking behind.
Dont miss It!
