The kings of melody are back once again with a melodious album and some rhythmic music.
Yes, Anand Milind, my favourite musicians are back with a beautiful music album. 'Tum Hi To Ho' has 6 songs in all.
My favourite is 'Aye Khuda Dard e Gum' sung by Kunal and Gayatri Gunjawala. This is a beautiful slow melodious song sung beautifully by Kunal and Gayatri. The verses of this song have been composed beautifully with melody all the way and the poetry too is great, with some recitals.
'Teri Shaame Mere Sabere' starts with a nice 'Oooooooooo' by Shaan. It has a nice rhythm and Anand Milind have cleverly used the current trend to satisfy the younger generation. The song is very different from the typical 90s style of Anand Milind. But of course, melody, which is missing in today's songs, can be witnessed in this song. Gayatri's singing is good.
'Aao Manaaye Jashn' is a fast paced song sung by Monali and Rahul Seth. Anand Milind have used some nice instruments in this song. Some English words have been nicely fitted in, which can be seen in most of today's songs. This is definitely going to be a hit song among the young college guys and girls.
'Dil Ne Mere Dil Ne' by Udit Narayan and Shreya Ghoshal is another melodious, slow song, which reminded me of 'kuch mere dil ne kaha' from 'Tere Mere Sapne.'
'Tum Hi To Ho,'which is the title song of the film, has been sung by Abhijeet. I personally feel a nice experiment has been done by Anand Milind in this song. This song very much fits the voice of Kishore Kumar. I somehow feel Kishore Kumar should have sung this song but that is impossible. Nevertheless, the singing by Abhijeet is greatttttttttt. The more you listen to this song, the more you will want to. The way the words 'tum hi to ho' have been composed in different modulations every time Abhijeet sings it, feels nice to the ears.
'Rock You Baby' sung by Arun Bakshi and June Banerjee is a typical today's song with English words, which most younger people like to listen today. Arun Bakshi sings some hindi lines to Punjabi beats which also gives the song a desi touch. the line 'its a mad mad world' gives the song a nice tune.
In short, Anand Milind have slightly shifted from their typical music style and have incorporated some latest beats and trends, but of course they have keep their best ingredient - MELODY - intact, which makes the album a great one. The more you listen, the more u feel like listening. That's 'Tum Hi To Ho' for you all.
