I remember, more than 10 years back in 1996, my brother gifted me “Sunoh” by Lucky Ali and I showed a little indifference as I didn’t like the songs at first go. But soon I felt - with “O Sanam” being played on all the Music channels and with few more listening of the songs – that it’s going to be a lifelong bond with these songs and this singer.

I remember having spent my adolescent years listening to these songs and now –as it happen with all music lovers – they have become part of my life, this is something I can relate to, something that reminds me of lot of things in past.

I remember how these songs inspired me to write my own stuff and to compose them. They implanted in me the seed of music.

And I remember that consideration, that whenever I am going to write a review for music, first one is going to be for “Sunoh”. So here it is.

“Sunoh” can easily be rated as best one by Lucky Ali, so far. What makes it better than his other works is its simplicity. Simplicity in terms of words, Simplicity in terms of music (with very few essential instruments used in every song), Simplicity in terms of the way the songs are sung. I think it’s the aspiration to do better than your prior works that makes one do things complexly and we forget that it’s the simplicity that people really loved. This doesn’t mean that his other works are not as good as this one; it’s just that it strikes the right chord in all departments.

The songs in this album seems to be the ones written, composed and performed by same person or Band and it feels strange that it’s not the case here. Hats off to composer if the words were written first and then composed and Hats off to the lyricist (Aslam) if it’s the other way around.

Now let’s move on to songs, one by one. Giving out a small extracts from the songs (words that I liked the most and which precisely portray the feel of the song). The sequence followed should not be confused with preference.

O SANAM : “Ankhone mein basi ho par duur ho kahin, dil ke karib ho yeh mujhko and yakin”

Does this song require any introduction? Every person looking forward to learn playing Guitar has it in his/her mind, it was same with me.. “if only I could play this one, God, I will never ask for anything more.” Though, once you learn to play Guitar finally, if you really do, you find out how easy it was actually, and I guess that’s what makes this song great and melodious, Soft Music, simple words and humming that’s there almost half of the time in the song. More than the song I liked the picturisation of its video in Egypt, mysterious characters moving here and there around Pyramids, still I am not able to understand what exactly the video’s all about, but I loved it. Words are simple but very effective and very very romantic. Million lovers across India fell in love with it when it first came and I was no exception. It’s a song for lovers, all kind of, especially the ones parted from each other and longing to be together again.

When a singer is releasing his very first music album, the selection of the song to be promoted on the TV has to be accurate (as it concerns not only that particular album but also the whole carrier of the artist) and Lucky chose the best of the lot, in terms of its beguiling and melodious approach and ability to reach the heart of the listener.

Sunoh : “Pal do Pal ki Duniya Saari, Ae Musafir Chalta ja; Chalte Chalte Raah mein tu Pyar Mohabbat Bante jaa..”

A song with a message of God, message of Love in riddles, it has a wonderful lyrics but only if one can listen to it properly and contemplate on it. It has an Arabic feel about it and one just have to close his eyes to find himself out there in desert with Lucky in that white robe. Silky voice of Lucky is best suited for this one.

Pyar ka Musafir :“Manzilein meri duur hai kahin; lagta nahi Dil mera yahan, Mujhe Jaane do wahan”

A Song of a man of dreams and love, a man looking for a place - Land of Love - of his dreams where he can find his loved one and fulfill all his wishes. It has Very catchy music, words are also very simple and the best part is the hum in Lucky’s voice. It’s a song to fall in love with and I love humming it every now and then and playing it on guitar gives a wonderful rejuvenating feeling. I especially love the little guitar lead piece that play in the background and beats of percussions bring feet to motion. Again Lucky’s voice is best suited for it.

Aap par Arz hai :“Aap par Arz hai, Lakhon Karodon Arbon Salaam; Aap na hote to Yeh Dil jaane kisko deta Duaa”

Bow down on your knees before your loved one and sing this song – no matter what kind of voice you have got - or play it in the background(if you are shy), she’s surely gonna fall for you. Show here how thankful you are to her for loving you so much. This is what I feel about this song, every word is so romantic and so beautiful, and since its short one, it makes it even more special. Lyrics are best part of this one and it also has a bit of Arabic feel to it.

Milegi Milegi Manzil :“Kaisi hai ye Duniya, pyar ka Naam-o-Nishaan nahi; main to huun Diwana mera Diwangi mein Naam sahi; Akele Dhundhta.. Savera Savera”

Now .. this one is my favorite song of the album, though it makes you a bit sad by the time it finishes. Feel of the song is very soulful and words are apt. It is about lack of love in the world and how we fight and hate each other when all we want in life is LOVE, and it gives a hope that one day we’ll find that place – Manzil – where love is supreme and everything. Other than lyrics, but makes it my favorite, is Lucky’s voice. The tone in which he has sung, giving it a proper melancholic feel. Not many instruments around here, in fact only one acoustic guitar is played in the background. I could easily rate it among Lucky’ s 10 best song.

Tum hi se :“Tum hi ho Pehle, Tum hi ho Aakhir, Tum hi se hai yeh Jahan; Tum hi se Maa Baap, Tum hi se Bachpan, Tum Hi se Samaa”

Lucky always include one song in his album which is dedicated to the Almighty God and admires Him. ‘Tum se hi’ is about the fact that everything that exist on this earth and beyond it are by the Grace of Almighty and we should be thankful to Him. Very inspiring song and can be used as a daily prayer. Words are chosen very meticulously. Music is very fitting – gives the feeling of unknown as if you are in a strange place and there are things beyond your comprehension and all you have to hold to is God’s name. Again hum in Lucky’s voice makes it even more beautiful.

Mostly I take care to finish the review within the limits, but this time, don't want to edit it, at all. So Continuing with rest of the songs in Comment Section ....
