Album Analysis :
Singers : Abhishek Nehwal
This song is an outright rip off from the evergreen popular track “I’m Shipping Upto Boston” from “The Departed”. Being the title track for the movie, the composer should have gone for a fresh tune or atleast made it looked less obvious. The song does leave a sour impression which affects the listener’s mood for the rest of the album regarding the originality. However good the song might sound, it is not worth going into details because of the above mentioned reasons.
2. Naa Jaane
Singers : Neeraj Shridar, Anushka Manchanda
Chartbuster written all over ! “Naa Jaane” is a remix of the evergreen hit number from Sridevi starrer “Chaalbaaz” but the lyrics, arrangements are changed to fit the plot of “I, Me Aur Main”. This sounds like a Pritam number but at all times, it is catchy. Neeraj Shridar is his usual self and does well. But the real show stealer is Anushka Manchanda who is fast emerging as one of the country’s best singers. With an array of songs this year, she is sure to bag lot of awards this year.
Singers : Falak Shabir
Definitely one of the best songs in the album. The mood of the song is quite sober. Falak Shabir does a good job in delivering a standout pathos number. This song is most likely to be picturized when the three main leads go through separation. There is also an unplugged version of Saajna which is no big different from the original version. Highly recommended listen !
4. Nasha Nasha
Singers : Neha Bhasin
“Nasha Nasha” is composed by Raghav Sachar & rendered by Neha Bhasin. This is a club, western/item song with tried and tested lyrics. There is no scope in musical front but the singing impresses.
Singers : Monali Thakur, Divya Kumar, Harshit Chouhan, Altamash, Shaadab
One of the best tracks of the album. This is Monali Thakur’s show all the way. Her versatility impresses – be it “Zara Zara Touch Me” or a slow, completely polar “Darbadar”. This is a qawali with an undercurrent of rock based arrangements in it. The lyrics portray the heartbreak of one from their beloved & the song captures the mood superbly.
6. Meri Jaaniye
Singers : Shaan, Monali Thakur
The album ends with another slow track. “I, Me Aur Main” scores really due to the presence of delightful slow numbers backed with some good singing. ”Meri Jaaniye” is a pleasant, superbly composed duet with Shaan & Monali Thakur giving their best renditions & this song is sure to go into i-Pod playlists.
Picks of the album : Saajna, Naa Jaane, Darbadar, Meri Jaaniye
