When I listened to the album for the first time, I was in for a disappointment. I was not really impressed with ARR’s music, but as usual, his music grows on you and now I’m hooked to it. Yet, it is not ARR’s best either; one would expect more out of him. The best part about the music is that almost all songs have a guitar base which actually sets the mood for all the songs and also caters to the new generation’s choice.
Melody-lovers like me will like Kahin to. In Rashid Ali, is the emergence of a fresh voice and it perfecly suits a new face like Imran Khan.
One cannot afford to miss Nazrein milana which is a good foot-tapping number and without your knowledge, you will start swinging to the music.
Jaane Tu… is a haunting melody by another new voice Runa Rizvi and with her different and unique voice, she has done full justice to the song. How far her voice will suit the Bollywood heroines is yet to be seen.
This song is later sung by Sukhwinder and is a slower version, but it doesn’t fail to impress you.
Kabhi Kabhi Aditi… is a fast and funky song again sung by Rashid Ali, which really sounds good.
With the fabulous combination of piano and saxophone, Tu Bole Main Boloon reminds me of yesteryear’s music compositions of Beethoven and Mozart. The song is sung by the Music God himself.
Pappu can’t dance sala is another peppy number rendered by lots of singers like Blaze, Mohd. Aslam, Tanvi, Anupama Deshpande, Benny Dayal, Darshana and Satish Subramanium. It’s an okay track, not very much liked by me. the remix version is not good either.
Overall, a good album, though I doubt if it will survive the test of time like ARR’s other hits like Bombay, Roja, Rangeela…
