HAUNTING AND MELODIOUS

Originality:

Saaya is a paranormal or supernatural love story and I have already posted the movie review. One thing that I certainly did not know of when I ventured to see this movie was that it had such fantastic music score as well. On first hearing itself songs slide easily in your mind. Soft, simple and with quite exquisite singing (though a bit amatuerish) mostly is good from the word go.


The music is soft like most Bhatt productions but this time a nice blend of chorus and rich orchestra has been used to add an element of paranormal to it. It does gel well. Some of the music itself is innovative. It surely lifted an otherwise one paced movie one notch above (which by the way everyone has loved the movie over here). I will review the songs in no particular order.


1) HAR TARAF: This song has been sung by Shrey Ghosal who did a wonderful job in Jism and has rich lyrics which question your set ideals. As said in the movie ''You believe in not believing''. The whole song has an element of situational coherence to it as well as rich score with a wonderful use of Indian classical voices done through electrical elements. Anu Malik once again has risen to the occasion with this song which wholly captures the mood of the film aptly. Listen it with closed eyes and the overall ambience is wonderful.


RATING - 4/5


2) Kabhi Khushboo: Another wonderful song with excellent use of orchestra. A song with situational lyrics that fits easily in the eerie and sombre mood of the movie and the mood that the album seeks to create. The mood in the film never really goes one notch up from calm to poignant other than the climax but the songs are one better than the other. Kay Kay who went through some aural infection in MPKDH is back in form with Anu Malik providing excellent platform to test his vocal glands.


RATING 4/5


3) O Saathiya: This is a magical song, probably the cutest song of the whole year so far. The newly wed couple, their love and freshness, all come out so sweetly in this real cool number that you want to fall in love all over again (probably with someone else :duh). The innocence and charm are further complemented by youthful and somewhat out of tune singing. The lyrics are wonderful in themselves and the beat added make this song sheer delight to watch as this song is also picturized well in the movie. An excellent case of all round convergence in execution. I came to know later through another review that MM Kreem has composed this song and cant help but geel that MM Kreen can add that unique emotion to songs (Gali Mein Chaand, Jaadu Hai Nasha Hia, Awarapan, Kabhi Shaam Dhale, Tu Mile Dil Khile and now this one). The song is just fantabulous.


RATING 5/5


4) O Saathiya (sad): Now this one does try to touch your tear glands but unfortunately does not. The blame ofcourse rests with singing which is listless and it is surprising since Sonu Nigam is singing this number and he has exuded hurt and pain wonderfully well in past (Tanhaayee anyone?). He goes awfully out of rhythm and soul both number of times in the song. The music is too slow paced and the melody just not right enough. Still it is worth listening but stands out from an otherwise rich score.


RATING 3/5


5) Seena Padega :The whistle is not the only invention here. It is probably a song which should have been done on Mahima, tells of longing of a heart when someone you love has gone far far away. Poignant song again and although the beat is too western for tastes, it is still wonderfully anchored by the voice of Shreya Ghosal who has come up rather nicely in only one year. Lyrics are again well done.


RATING 3/5


6) Aaj Jo Teri Yaad : This song follows the pattern, with superb signature orchestra using Sitar. This is female version of sad O Saathiya and is even lesser effective than Sonu Nigam and not even Shreya Ghosal can sing such a complicated song well. Looks like Lata Mangeshkar did something noone has done since, sing the dard bhare gaane with a poise and elegance that one misses now. Probably the worst song of the whole album.


RATING 2/5


7) Aye Meri Zindagi: This is the second best song of the album. Again Anu Malik provides good orchestra and Udit Narayan does well. The lyrics are good as well and the picturization is cool as well. Perfect song to round of a good album. It does have superb signature tune.


RATING 4/5


Go get it if you have not and play it in your car and feel the difference. Listening to the songs I feel like watching the movie again which is creditable in an era of ''visual audio''!!!!!
