Sample this: “Sab khatm ho ke bhi, tere mere darmiyaan, kuch to baaki hai…” That’s how unimaginative the lyrics of Milenge Milenge’s first song, Kuch To Baaki Hai are. And things only get worse. You hear the high-pitched voice of Himesh Reshammiya bellowing these words and about 30 seconds of it is all you can bear to hear.
The title track has Alka Yagnik on the vocals. Seems like she’s risen from the dead, just as the movie has, but fails to infuse any life into the listeners. Some Jayesh Gandhi on the male vocals sounds a hell of a lot like Reshammiya. Milenge Milenge, the song, is dull and drab.
Milenge Milenge has a part 2 as well. This time Reshammiya himself shares the mike with Shreya Ghosal. Do they make things any better? Of course not.
Tum Chain Ho, sung by Sonu Nigam, Alka Yagnik and Suzanne D’Mello, is an okay track. It sounds like something out of Sonu Nigam’s albums of yore, which is not really a bad thing, but it’s the kind of track that people have grown out of. Same for Ishq Ki Gali and Hare Kaanch Ki Chuddiyan.
Overall, the music of Milenge Milenge is ordinary. None of the songs are worth your playlist, but then, I didn’t expect them to be either. The movie has been on the shelf for a few years, which is apparent from the trailers as well as the music. Not great expectations, no great disappointments.
