The last film of the year due to release on December 30, Kya Yahi Sach Hai seems to be already signaling a new trend, firstly by making a marked departure from the way the music industry composes songs. At the music launch conducted on November 28, Mahendra Singh Dhoni exclaimed surprise at the very existence of an item number in the film. I would be inclined to concur with him as an item number would kinda be slightly out of place in what is slated as a reality-based, hard-hitting police film.


While we would have to wait till December 30 to get a glimpse of the content of the film, the makers already seem to have scored a plus with the music. It is worth admitting that the tracks that constitute the album represent a different approach to music composition in India. This is prima facie evident from the wide variety of genres comprising the album - pop, hip-hop, instrumental and a host of others.


The album opens blissfully with'Yeh Zindagi Hai, Sagar ka behta paani', sung by Shreya Ghoshal. Indeed Shreya's voice works out pretty well with the composition, rendering the air with sublime notes reminiscent of an early morning experience by the sea. Shreya's refreshing voice and the skillfull treatment rendered to the track by Santosh Anand have certainly go a long way in doing justice to the song.


Shreya continues to work magic as she blissfully sings'Udake Mujhko ye hawayein le gay kahan' and'Voh Sunehare Din". The melancholy notes of "Voh Sunehare Din" seem to suggest the story of a grieving woman recalling her glorious past. The song sets the listener back in time, making one ponder over the days gone by, how they went, and how they were spent. Shreya's voice once again does great justice to what can be said are wonderful lyrics.


Unarguably the finest in the entire collection, 'Udake Mujhko ye hawaein le gay kahan' strikes the emotional chord, with a delicate mix of Shreya's voice and the violin. The melancholy character is comparable to that of'Sunehare din' but contain an element of hope as well. THis song can make for a wonderful, late-night listening experience. The song also makes a second appearance in the album, this time in Alka Yagnik's voice. Both tracks are wonderfully done, with the one by Shreya gaining a slight edge over the other.


Coming to the item number'Meri Chadti Jawani', I was slightly surprised to find a song driven more by lyrics than the tune and treatment. Set in apparently Bhojpuri Lyrics, the song marks an aggressive departure from routine Bollywood item songs which contain lyrics bearing little or no connection with the theme of the film. It may go on to signal a new trend in item numbers, bringing the rural flavor of music and masala into the heartland of Bollywood. With striking lyrics ranging from a catchy "Nachche hai tu eik gaane pe raja, toh poora cinema bhi sang dekh le…" to the ravaging "Tere paas hai Danda toh Mere Paas Hai Bamm", the song is bound to make one swing.


The album ends with the "Retreat" - an instrumental rendition of what was unarguably Mahatma Gandhi's favorite tune -'Abide with Me', given a more sombre rendering by Santosh Anand. I would be dead sure to say that the nature of this piece and the last chapter of YP Singh's book "Carnage by Angels" bear a striking resemblance in mood and setting. With this track marking the end of the album, it implants a wild guess in our minds as to what the ending of the film will be like.


Overall Verdict: A Must-Listen.


Rating: 4/5
