After the super sucess of the album Aap Kaa Surroor- the moviee- the real Luv Story, Himesh returns to the picture after a long hiatus of more than a year. And yeah, he does surprise.
Lut Jaao: Certainly the most promoted song from the movie, one is hooked onto it from the moment the loop plays, which goes on to play throughout the song and has Himesh written all over it. The song starts with an 'Aalaap' and this is the first time Himesh's voice is heard in the song. The song is a typical Himesh song with Harshdeep complimenting him very well with her vocals at a slow pace. The song has a haunting effect involved in it and promises to become a chartbuster for sure.
Hari Om: This is a Gen-X version of Om Shanti Om (Karz). Based on the same situation as in the original for Om Shanti Om, the song is the first solo Himesh song in the album. The song starts with some dialogues rendered by Himesh speaking about his love, which is soon followed by a beautiful guitar piece. Pumped up with dance beats, and Himesh's poweful vocals, it is a sure shot rage in the coming days.
Tandoori Nights: The words itself creates curiosity among the audience and the curiosity is worth it as Himesh comes in with yet another chartbuster popping song. This time he has Sunidhi Chauhan supporting him for this peppy duet number. Sameer has written some really good lines in this song but yeah he fails in creating a connection at most of the parts. But one doesnt mind that..who cares?
Soniye Je Tere: While all the previous songs, had Himesh written over it in some way or the other, Soniye Je Tere pops up as the first contemporary song of the album. This simply takes you back to the days when Himesh emphasized on the classical touch of his songs. Starting with some english vocals, this song is actually a duet number, this time Tulsi Kumar being at the helm. The song will catch up soon with classic music lovers and might take time to grow on gen-x music lover.
Dhoom Tere Ishq Ki: The contemporary flavour continues, and this time its Himesh back again with a solo song. With the title ‘Dhoom’ one would basically think of it being a dance number, but it turns out to be totally different. It is a slow paced romantic number with only the Indian instruments supporting it throughout the song. A tribute to Dard-e-dil (Karz) is also followed as Sameer writes the ditto line ‘Aur thodi der mein hum juda ho jaayenge’. Beautiful composition.
Sisak Sisak: Sisak Sisak, starting with a rap, marks Himesh being the solo singer yet again. The lyrics by Sameer ji are totally outstanding in this song, and one gets the feeling that it is actually a sad situation based song yet it has some youth touch attached to it with some tapping beats. The powerful voice of Himesh just suits this song.
Tere Bin Chayn Naa Aave: From the first second itself, one feels for a second that has he tuned into Jhalak Dikhlaja? But no, that’s not the case. The song is a yet another contemporary song, with yet again only Indian instruments supporting it and actually a slow paced song. This song features Himesh’s trademark ‘oooo’ which his fans would be listening to after a long time. Good work in the lyrics department yet again, and one could feel that it is a song based on a heartbreak situation. Tulsi Kumar accompanies Himesh again, and she is strictly OK! The song would surely be the first choice for the total Indian music lovers.
Mashallah: Its Himesh and you don’t listen to a powerful yet romantic number? Impossible. That is what comes in the form of Mashallah. A total sufi romantic song, with a soothing effect from the instruments playing, this song is set to take you all away to a world of your own. Sameer ji compliments with his lyrics fabulously in this one as well. In Short, ROCKING!!
Ek Haseena Thi: Ah, save the best for the last is what they say. And guess what, Karzzzz has its best coming at the very end of the album. Now before one listens to this song, he definitely has various questions in his mind regarding this composition living up to the standards of the original? The answer is Yes! And its way ahead of what other composers have done, trying to giving the gen-x, a new version of a classic. The song kicks off with Himesh rendering a short speech regarding the story he is going to deliver through this song. And the theme tune plays. At the very first strike of the chord, the song takes you to a different level. Himesh is totally different in his singing this time and you gotta listen to it to believe it. Shreya Ghoshal does a fabulous job in the female portion. Himesh is successful in creating the haunting effect in the song different from what was in the original. Not just that, with the lyrics being same for the most part of the song, one is in for a surprise as this version does feature lyrics added on its own during the end of the song. Himesh makes sure he has enthralled the listeners and yeah he does.
