KAL HO NAA HO....................well another of those hyped up films from the YASH JOHAR banner but this time around its not directed by KARAN JOHAR but his assistant,NIKHIL ADVANI.The film though stars Johar's favourite SHARUKH KHAN,along with PREITY ZINTA and SAIF ALI KHAN.The film doesn't interest me,but what I certainly was looking forward to was its album coz it has music by my favourite trio SHANKAR-EHSAAN-LOY and lyrics by JAVED AKHTAR...............and these have worked wonders together in DCH,ARMAAN and KUCH NA KAHO................but sadly they fail to create the magic this time around.KHNH fails to live up to expectations..............and the only reason I have given this album three stars is for the title song and some of the great singing done in some very average songs.Otherwise its a strictly average album.


There are six songs in the album.


The album opens with the title song KAL HO NA HO..................which is on air now-a-days and needless to say its a splendid song and the best in the album.Its a beautifully written song,well composed...............the music is soft,soothing and catchy and SONU NIGAM has done a brilliant job in singing the song.A WINNER all the way.


MAAHI VE.........................this is the typical chopra-Johar song,on he lines of BOLE CHUDIYAN.The song has a nice catchy tune to it but its too loud..................and what makes me dilsike the song is that,there is no novelty or freshness in it.The same punjabi lyrics,the same bhangra beats...............with lots of Singers singing the song.But I am sure th song will become a huge hit...............when it 'll be aired on tv,but for me its an average track.The song has been sung by SONU NIGAM,SUJATA,UDIT NARAYAN,SADHANA SARGAM and SHANKAR MAHADEVAN.


ITS THE TIME TO DISCO........................well this english lyrics in a hindi song really bug me off..neways its another cool,uptempo song with a very 70's feel to it,when I heard the SONG THE first time I thought a NAZIA HASSAN song has been remixed.The song is just about ok..................but has been extremely well sung by VASUNDHRA DAS,SHAAN and KK.


KUCH TO HUA HAI....................this one is a fairly decent song,there is a dearth of great songs in this album so you have to call KUCH TO HUA hai a good number.Its a nice romantic song,the music is soft and the instrumentation is good.............lyrics are nothing great,but again The song has been very well sung by SHAAN and ALKA YAGNIK.


KAL HO NAA HO...............this is the sad version of the title song,the song is FAIRLY OK...............i think its gonna be played in the background when PREITY will be getting married to SAIF,coz there is a mantra,Shehnai,bidai song being played along with kal ho na ho..................this song boast of good lyrics and great singing by RICHA SHARMA and SONU NIGAM...................but its a very situational track.


PRETTY WONAM..............is a direct lift from the original song PRETTY WOMAN,but must say a very poor one.Its got stupid lyrics,bhangra beat and rap thrown in between..............and SHANKAR MAHADEVAN furthar spoils the song by singing it.And whats it with JAVED AKHTAR too have written a song like this?I think JAVED AKHTAR and SLE have also gone mad in KARAN JOHAR's company...............how else do you explain this song?FAST-FORWARD PLEASE!


1\5.


KAL HO NAA HO...................is a very mediocre album on the whole..............and if you wanna buy it,don't expect much out of it as I did coz you are sure to be dissapointed in a big way.'NEWAYS guys there are better albums to look forward to this year....................TEHZEEB(AR REHMAN MAGIC)and KHAKEE(WAADA RAHA song is brilliant)so save your money for them.I am looking forward to these two albums coz I think they are gonna rock and not dissapoint like KAL HO NA HOO did.
