The music scenario in bollywood has changed drastically in the past 4-5 years. Music gradually started out loosing melody and its dependency on funky and groovy rhythms started increasing.
In such an unfavorable scenario, music of Tum hi to ho brings relief to melody lovers of today. The music of the movie has been composed by Anand Milind. Surprising, isn't it? The brilliant composer duo who got lost somewhere along with the melody in music are back. With the music of QSQT celebrating golden jubilee in 2013, Anand Milind try another comeback with this brilliant score. The movie might be a B grade movie but the songs are definitely A grade in the movie.
There are six songs in total in this movie:
1. Dil Ne Mere: An excellent piano piece marks the starting of the song. The song has a distinct rhythm to it and the melody is something that makes this song special. Sung by Anand Milind's favourite Udit Narayan and Shreya Ghoshal, this song is a whiff of fresh air for the melody lovers of the 90s. I feel that Sadhna Sargam would have been a better choice for the song.
2. Rock you baby: Another song which features the rhythm and groove of today and the melody of yester years. The song has a catchy tune and has the callibre to be popular among the young crowd. Sung by another veteran Arun Bakshi and newcomer June Bannerjee, the song makes you think what's next in store.
3. Mere shaame mere savere: This is, by me, the best number of the album. The song is based on latin progressions and usage of Spanish guitar is awesome. The melody is great and the voices of Shaan and Gayatri Ganjawala peps up the mood and yuo crave for more songs like these.
4. Aye khuda dard: Sung by Kunal Ganjawala and Gayatri Ganjawala, this song is a soft romantic number which starts on a sad note but gradually changes colour to a romantic number. A song which has pain and reprise both. It has poetry recital in between by unknown voices but the recital sounds romantic. Good song indeed.
5. Tum hi to ho: Another song another veteran. Sung by Abhijeet, this song oscillates between being a romantic soulful number and being a new age punky number. The song will be appreciated by the people who developed their taste of music in the early and mid 90s.
6. Aao Manaaye Jashn: This is another peppy number which has the capability to be popular among the young crowd of today. The song has modern rhythms and the composition itself is modern. The song has been sung by Monali and Rahul Seth.
Overall, the album is something which I would like to recommend to my friends and everyone who loves melody. Thumbs up indeed.
