      Shaapit music rating: 8 out of 10(Vinayak wrote on Apr 2 2010 12:11AM)

      The album opens with a rock version of the song 'Kabhi Na Kabhi' (whose original appears later in the album) with actor Aditya Narayan debuting behind the mic in this solo track. The track takes off with some haunting melody and Aditya's vocals follows catching up with it. When Sameer is at the helm of the lyrics you dont expect anything but some done to death lyrics. But here he does come up with some sensible and fabulous lines like "Dil pe khayalo ki barf jami hai'. This track catches up on you from the very first hearing and has full on rock moments throughout. Aditya Narayan does extremely well in providing the soft as well as the screeching rock touch to the song. Watch out for the line 'Kabhi na kabhi' during the last stanza where he takes off Yakeen Hai in an unexpected manner. All in all, this makes the route to the soundtrack quite excting, with such an enticing opener.

      Guest composer Najam Sheraz makes out some way for himself with 'Tere Bina' which is a slow sad track sung and written by the composer himself. While the lyrics are quite good, and so is the composition, the vocals are quite shaky at certain instances which is forgivable enough because of the overall effect the track has. A beautiful track overall, though not a chartbuster material.

      Winds and haunting melody marks off 'Ajnabi Hawayein' which sees Shreya Ghoshal making her entry into the soundtrack. The track is a perfect blend of horror and love interconnected with each other. Though it is more of a situational track, it doesnt fail to impress as it keeps on the haunting melody on throughout the song with Shreya's vocals being just too apt for the track!
      Aditya Narayan is in again, this time for a soft romantic solo ‘Chahata Dil Tumko’ which begins in quite a strange manner, but gradually the romantic breeze builds up and finally Aditya gets down in all form for this soothing number which is more or less an Indo pop with the clap beats and the rap being tuned in at instances. While the clap beats aren’t that pleasing, the rap looks totally forced. But it is Aditya Narayan who is the show stealer, because it is his soft husky voice that makes up for this strictly decent composition, making it far better for the ears.
      The original version of Kabhi Na Kabhi makes it way into the album, after it has initially rocked up all out with its haunting rock version. This one is a pure love melody; with a bit of old feel to it which actually connects to the listeners at the very first instance. Lyrics are same as in the rock version though here you have an added stanza with some beautiful lines like “Hoga jahaan pe andhero ka savera, hoga wahi pe humara bhi basera’. Aditya Narayan successfully keeps up to his soft vocals in this version, along with back up supporting vocals by Suzzane D’ mello doing full justice to this beautiful love track.
      It is time for some fun with ‘Hayaati’ which has a bit of Arabic feel to it also giving a feel of the track ‘Le Le Mazaa Le’ from Wanted. A duet by Hamza and Chirantan Bhatt, it takes more than a minute before one finally hears the vocals. The track does have a sound that would strike with you somewhat, but yet ends up being an average track on the whole.

      Aditya Narayan turns Himesh Reshammiya for a while with additional feature of that of a lyricist, as he along with acting in the movie, composes and croons the title track ‘Shaapit Hua’. Sunidhi Chauhan takes off from the very first second and there on there is nothing stopping this one, which goes the rock music route. The track carries a sense of mystery and love interspersed with each other at which Aditya Narayan does a terrific job as whole i.e. composing, singing and writing this track. Sunidhi Chauhan complements him quite well and makes the song enjoyable, bringing the album to a close in an exciting fashion.
