1. Gud Naal Ishq Mitha:
A reworked version of an old Punjabi hit. It turns out an average dance number with club beats, recycled synth loops and club music. Nothing even faintly interesting apart from being mildly foot tapping.
2.Jaane Naa Kyun
Sonu Nigam breathes life into this melody without which it would resulted in another mediocre outing. The song has a slight heard before feel. But it has soul and does work in parts. A typical bollywood melody one can say.
Liked this one. Packed with synth layers and ably supported by a good tune this song works! It emanates a sort of a melancholic vibe that connects at once. A good song.
As stereotyped as it gets. Most of mainstream bolly albums have a song like this. This song religiously follows a monotonously standard pattern with those foot tapping beats coupled with an average tune packaged with cheesy romantic lyrics. Average at best.
5.Aaja Meri Jaan(R.D.Burman)
A reworked version of R.D.Burman’s hit song. The track has been well tailored to suit this age. This old school melody finally finds the target. This is a beautiful song with uplifting vocals which sound jazzy and simultaneously classical. The husk and the texture of Maulvi Dave is perfect for a song like this and proves to be the song’s USP and subsequently the album’s too. Amply supported by accordion, guitar, string layers, this song covers all its bases and emerges out as a winner. Seems like only Pancham da can save this sinking album.
6. Gud Naal Ishq Mitha(Remix)
It is better than the Tochi Raina version. Sukhwinder’s high octane vocals and powerful singing makes it enjoyable. A neat dance number.
7.Jaane Naa Jyun(Remix)
I’m not a big fan of remixes but this, I would say is a proper remix, true to the format. With synth layers and techno beats added on top of the melody and with an increased tempo , this remix works.
Another pointless remix which has nothing to offer.
9. Aaja Meri Jaan(Remix)
It tries its best to erase all the positive impressions that the original song created. One can’t find anything different. Its the same old fast tempo, heavily processed vocals, synth loops and beats.
10. Halki Halki(Remix)
A faster, snappier version of the original.
11.Gud Naal Ishq Mitha(Remix 2)
A remix of a remix. I dont know what to say. But I just dont understand the rationale behind Pritam remixing every one of his songs especially when everything remains the same except the singer and the tempo.
After an exhausting stream of pointless remixes, comes this beautiful unplugged version of Judaai. Minimalism works well for this number because it has such a haunting tune and silky smooth vocals. It strikes a chord with the listener immediately. Nice one.
Verdict: So, what do we finally have here! Here’s an album that is patchy. It treads along predictable lines and for the most part fails to enthuse the listeners. Even the soul and freshness of R.D.Burman’s ‘Aaja Meri Jaan’ is not able to save this strictly average album.
