1. Dil ne mere Dil ne
Simple yet elegant, this song subtly captures the melancholic feelings of the hero and the heroine. The very thought that struck me at the first listen was that the song has a striking resemblance to “kuch mere dil ne kaha” from “Tere mere sapne”. Veterans Udit Narayan and Shreya Ghoshal come up with an honest and soulful rendition. The neatly arranged orchestration deserves a special mention.
2. Rock you baby
Rock you baby is a racy number tailor made for playing in parties and discotheque. The prelude has some funny voices that give you a ghostly feeling. It is a fine blend of western and Punjabi folk types, perhaps a new attempt! Unlike the other conventional songs of this genre, Rock you baby has light and balmy vocals. With precise use of sound technology, the song seems to be a promising dance number.
3. Teri shame mere sabere
Sung by the Ganjawala couple, Kunal and Gayatri, this one is fast, yet sounding pleasant at few places. The simple tune though might sound lively and buoyant in the initial portions could possibly bore you down as the song progresses. The song, lacking any creativity is probably a mere addition to the top 50 songs of the kind.
4. Aye Khuda
This stylish pop based song is arguably the finest offering by the music directors in the album. There is a tinge of pain in Kunal’s voice which works well with the lyric of the song, especially with words like “zakhm” and “dawa”. The lengthy dialogue sequence in the middle is quite boring and could have been avoided. The song with its cool instrumentation and a clean rendition by the singers would be a sure winner!
5. Tum hi to ho
The title track of the album is sung by Abhijeet, the voice behind many chartbusters like “Chaand tare from yes boss” and “ Suno na Suno na from Chalte Chalte”. Some kind of roughness prevails throughout the song which spoils the mood of the listener. A fine use of guitar at places comes as a respite in the otherwise dull and boring song.
6. Ayo manaye jashn
Ayo manaye jashn is an energetic fast paced song. Instruments provide full support to the spotless rendition by the singers. The composition as such is mediocre and is completely naked in terms of variety and flavor. The song is heavy and is jarring to the ears at places.
In summary, Anand-Milind hoping to make an impressive comeback after a layoff, have failed to create the magic they once used to. Sparing the two songs, Aye khuda and Rock you baby, the rest of the album is a letdown!
