Main Hoon Na- Music- Its a khichdi alright!


Yes its out already! And yes, I bought the CD after just listening to one song in parts. :) And no, I don't completely regret it. And no, I don't exactly feel really good about buying it too. LOL. Does that give you an idea of what's going to follow in this review? If not, Read on! (If you do, still READ ON! Or else....evil grin)


The music is by .....Anu Malik (NO! I didn't know that before buying the CD!!)


# Main Hoon Na- Its sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghoshal. Sonu sounds nice, as usual. Shreya sounds really sweet .The promos are on air, and I liked the music and the song. But the actual song has those trademark Anu Malik features. The song is mixed with those unneccessary bits of instrumental 'noise' LOL, and someone(s) :D who goes tu...ru..turu.... and ''coombaya...!!!!!! What does that mean? And not to forget the garnishing of the perfectly hindi song with english words! But if you meditate, calm down, filter the song virtually in the mind of all its unneccessary components, its actually a nice song. A quite sweet song. Lyrics are the usual mushy stuff:


Kiska hai yeh tumko intezaar main hoon na


Dekh lo idhar to ek baar main hoon na


Khamosh kyun ho jo bhi kehna hai kaho


Dil chahe jitna, pyar utna maang lo,


tumko milega utna pyaar main hoon na!


I really like the whistling in the background! lol! This IS THE BEST song of the bunch. You will like listening to it.


#Tumse Milke Dil Ka Hai Jo Haal


Beats are kind of like those energetic bhangra ones, but actually the song resembles qawwalis ..i guess..., you could like the song after hearing it twice or thrice. Actually, its one of the better songs of the album. Sonu Nigam is the singer again. But once again, Anu Malik puts in English words like 'wassup' and 'check that' which are meaningless!! It gives the song a 'wannabe cool' feel. LOL, as if english words could give the song a 'feel cool' factor.


Uggh! And to my horror, Anu malik pops in and out of the song, saying 'rumtararum'


I dunno...I get an inkling that this review is going to cause a sharp decline in the album sale...lol


Tumse Milke dil ka hai jo haal kya kahein


Ho gaya hai kaisa yeh kamaal kya kahein


(Too many instruments in this one too)


#Tumhe Jo maine dekha


Abhijeet sounds good. I wonder why he doesnt sing in more movies.


The song...sounds too much like a mid 90's song, not neccessarily bad, but you feel as though you have heard the song earlier. But, I guess thats a given in an A.M. composition!!


Not much else to say about this one.


Tumhe jo maine socha


Tumhe jo maine maana


Tumhe jo maine dekha


Tumhe jo maine jaana


Jo hosh tha..Woh to gaya


Its not bad on the ears....mainly because of Abhijeet's voice.


# Gori Gori- Sung by K.K, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chauhan and....Anu Malik!!


You must have heard the eternal question regarding the chicken and the egg? That will have to move from its spot of being the biggest mystery in the world. The question now, is, why does Anu Malik sing? Why? Do u have an answer? I guess not so I better move on.


The song starts with English rap...yet again!


Then it tries to be a catchy 'its the time to disco' kind of song, and ends miserably. Its mediocre at best.


Gori gori gori gori gori gori


Kabhi Kabhi Kahin kahin kahin chori chori


and yak yak yak yak......


# Chale Jaise Hawaein


Sung by KK and Vasundhara Das, the same duo from Its the time to disco, it fails to even register on your memory. Its an average song. Complete with the 'wassup's.


Chale jaise Hawaein sanan sanan


ude jaise parinde gagan gagan


wo..woh..oo...


LOL!


Vasundhara sounds terribly scary!


# Main Hoon Na (sad version)- This one is not sung by Sonu Nigam, even though the 'normal' version is. Abhijeet doesn't disappoint.At all! Its a nice song....unlike the KHNH sad version.


Khoya hai pakar jisne pyaar main hoon na


Bechain main hoon, bekaraar main hoon na


Koi to ho aisa jisko apna keh sakoon


Koi to ho aisa jiske dil mein reh sakoon


Koi to kehta ek baar main hoon na


#Ye Fizayein


KK and Alka Yagnik this time.


The excess instrumental noise is BACK!!


Pretty OK song. Nothing special about it. The usual hindi movie feel good song lol.


I don't like KK much...


Ye fizaein


sun lo gayein


zindagi hain haseen.....


and so on and on and on...


I will compare this one with a KHNH song again, with Kuchh to hua hai. That one really makes you feel happy ...this one is nothing compared to it.


Now I understand that Shankar Ehsaan Loy's average is other people's magnum opus-es! LOL


# Main Hoon NA- REMIX


(yet another version of the title track!!)


English sentences at the start. Don't sound bad like the earlier mentioned songs..because atleast this time, we get complete sentences and not words!


Its the same main track with funkier beats and sentences like 'I'll be theeeeerreeee...'' But funkier and 'not bad' do not neccessarily mean good. Alteast not in this case. Its Passable. U turn the cd player on, it plays n passes, and you dont even notice.


So basically, only the first 3 songs and the sad version of the title track is good in the album. Rest are atleast not worth spending 125 bucks on 'em. Buy a cassette, if you want to. I bought the CD because...of my craze for anything related to Shahrukh.


You can buy the CD if you want to, but don't tell me I didn't warn you! Just get the 1st 3 and the sad version(mp3..) somehow, and you dont need the rest.


Lol, I've saved the songs on my computer, now I'll go to the shopkeeper and try to convince him to gimme atleast a 50 back from the 125 I paid him!. LOL, try maarne mein koi tax thode hee lagta hai, right?


p.s. I guess my views differ A LOT from tanmoychak's revu on the same album, but I'm surprised to see that nikamma112's and my opinion is completely the same! wow! And I didnt even read his review before writing this! LOL.


This was just a random piece of information for those who wish to increase their general knowledge.
