A DECENT ENOUGH EFFORT FROM PRITAM!
Although the soundtrack sounds very Pritam with its pacy beats, English rap lyrics et al, there is no taking away that the songs sound pleasant enough and make their way to the radio playlists. Typical of the Bhatt camp, they have another film coming up, with a decent soundtrack which will only add to the film's appeal. In fact, there films seem to have similar sounding albums!
The one fabulous song in the album is this track called 'Tu Hi Haqeeqat' composed so beautifully and sung by Javed Ali with such feeling that it immediately makes you press the repeat buton as it finishes off. Lovely Urdu lyrics, not only pronounced perfectly by the singer but sung with real understanding of what they really mean put together (something which Mohammed Rafi and Sonu Nigam (despite being a Hindu) have been doing so naturally till now).
'Dil Ibaadat' sung by K.K. in characteristic straight powerful voice, is also a good listen. Stays with you after you've finished listening to it! This also has a rock version, sung by K.K. himself.
'Tum Mile', the title number sung by Neeraj Sridhar is a fun number with a peppy beat. A sweet song.
'Tum Mile' also has a rock version in the voice of Shafqat Amanat Ali, which is a more beautifully sung number (read better and more classically trained voice) but the music is a little loud on the ears!
And 'Tum Mile' once again, in a 'Love Reprise' version by Javed Ali is perhaps the best version of this song, the music is lovely and so is the voice singing it.
'Is Jahaan Mein' by Mohit Chauhan is a fast paced light number and does make you groove to it just a bit, but still comparatively, perhaps the only weaker link in the album.
'O Meri Jaan' by K.K. is a sad number which has makes beautiful use of the keyboards as well as the accoustic guitar, sung soulfully enough.
The Soul of Tum Mile is an instrumental piece which is kind of ok.
All in all a good album which mostly has listenable numbers. Good work done - Bhatt camp and Pritam! Way to go!
