Music Review - Love Aaj Kal
(This article is sponsored by Sounds Of India)
Pritam , Irshad Kamil and Imtiaz Ali, the team that gave us the hit track of Jab We Met is back with yet another wonderful album in Love Aaj Kal. With Saif Ali as producer and director one can expect a fine film and the music is certainly setting that tone.
This old Punjabi track “Kadi Te Hass Bol Ve” is re-arranged and given a ‘Love Aaj Kal’ tadka. The song has a distinctive feel to it because of the mixture. “Kadi Te Hass Bol Ve” part is sung by Salim while ‘Aahun-Aahun’ is in the voice of Neeraj Sridhar. Indeed a compelling number. Its remix version Aahun Aahun remix is a pacy track.
This is a take on teh old Nagin tune and listening Pritam's rearrangement in place for this half-a-century old tune, "aap ka ma be dolega". And with a new "Twist" a great song for moving on the sance floor.
Ajj Din Chadheya
Another Punjabi Track in the album and a soulful rendition by Rahat Fateh Ali Khan. This track adds subtlety to the album. Though Rahat sings this song, it’s not a sufi number and the use of western instruments for the music of the song makes it different. The song has Indian feel with western flavour to it.
This is again sung by Neeraj Sridhar, and Sunidhi Chauhan. The song has the same freshness that you see in the trailer of the movie and expect from the movie. The lyrics of the song are interesting, realistic, lovable, and above all, mast. The music is good and foot-tapping, and the lyrics will probably help the song long last. Go for this one.
Mohit Chauhan gets the chance to rekindle the “Tum Se Hi” magic with this track. Yeh Dooriyan has a very striking start and after three mast velocity numbers, this track soothes your mind. The lyrics describe the longing for the beloved and the song has the same feel as ‘Tum Se Hi’. Must say the hangover of ‘Jab We Met’ is not yet over.
Thoda Thoda Pyar
It's time to enter a Punjabi household with 'Thoda Thoda Pyar' that has a 'sangeet' ceremony kick starting the proceedings. The sound of 'shaava' and 'aahas' coupled with a bunch of women setting the 'shaadi-byaah-ka-mahaul' with a 'desi' touch is what makes 'Thoda Thoda' different from the rest of it's kind. Sunidhi Chauhan gets her first solo number in the album and she does well in getting the nuances right for 'Thoda Thoda Pyaar'
Main Kya Hoon
The wonderful K.K., is last to come with 'Main Kya Hoon'.Not a punjabi song and perhaps not K.K's best but still a fine number ..
Overall it is a great album an well worth a listen.
