you remember the fun you had
in watching Andaz Apna Apna?
The movie happens to be one
of the most loved romantic comedies
in Hindi film industry. And
now Rajkumar Santoshi is back
again with his yet another romantic
comedy venture Ajab Prem Ki
Ghazab Kahani. With the star
cast of Ranbir Kapoor, Katrina
Kaif, Rajkumar Santoshi and
Pritam expectations run very
high. The combination of Pritam
and Irshad Kamil resulted in
success stories like Love Aaj
Kal and Jab We Met. Hence one
can obviously look forward to
listening to good music. Also
this movie is being produced
by TIPS so one can be rest assured
that Ramesh Taurani will only
want the best for his famous
Tera Dhadkan Teri ...
Vocals: K K
, Sunidhi Chauhan, Hard Kaur
A funky song begins with the
rap of Hard Kaur. This number
has a remix kind of feel with
hip hop and pop music thrown
together. Kay Kay’s voice
like always is very
and with Sunidhi’s voice brings out
the right rhythm. The arrangements are quite
heavy but there is also a variety. The electric
guitar and the beats will surely ensure
that this song hits the dance clubs and
Tu Jaane Na...
Vocals: Atif Aslam
Jaane Na is more of a love ballad, a romantic
number that will surely be sung by many
in love. The music is straight and simple.
There are also tinges of Qawali kind of
tunes thrown in here and there that makes
the song more melodious to listen to. The
lyrics are also very good and Atif Aslam’s
voice as could be predicted has woven its
own magic to the song. A welcome change
in fact, one that reminds of music of the
80’s – tabla has been used in
this song, something that we don’t
see in today’s fast music. Listening
to this song would make you want to sit
back and enjoy.
Oh By God...
Vocals: Mika, Sunidhi Chauhan
This is a song that will surely remind one
of old Bollywood tunes. Shehani has been
used to a great extent in the song. In fact
the tunes would also give you the feel of
being at a wedding. The lyrics, voice of
Mika and Shehani makes you wonder if this
would be a funny song in the movie. The
song has a very Indi pop album feel to it,
may be because of the voice combinations
of Mika and Sunidhi. Can’t promise
if this song will burn the charts but it
might become famous at Punjabi weddings.
Tera Hone Laga Hoon ...
Vocals: Alisha Chinoy,
The first sentence of the song would make
you sit up and create an urge to listen
to the rest of the song. This is a very
romantic number that is surely going to
be a hit with the college crowd and especially
with the ones which look to impress their
loved ones. This would surely be a song
they would dedicate. The combination of
Alisha Chinoy and Atif Aslam is very good.
The tunes are very soothing with more of
English classic mixed with straight Hindi
lyrics to give you a lovely song.
Sridhar, Suzzane D’Mello
This one has been sung by the lead singer
of Bombay Vikings; Neeraj Sridar, may be
that’s why it reminds you of their
songs. Prem ki Nayya also has some funny
lyrics especially in the chorus sung by
Suzzane D’Mello. Also to be noted
is that the lyrics also have a tinge of
Bojpuri in them. This song would again give
you the 80’s feel may be because of
its tune and beats. The song is pleasant
and funny to listen to.
Jao Meri Tamana...
Another romantic number that is surely catchy
and good to listen to. This song has been
sung by Javed Ali and his modulations, tones
and emotions add a very good feel making
you want to listen to the song again. But
here and there in bits you can feel that
his voice has been stressed which is obvious
only when he says Kaise Mujme Sama Ho in
the high pitch. But you may actually slip
that if you’re not concentrating on
the music as such. The beats, keyboard and
the parts make the song a nice melodious
Hard Kaur on the vocals is very interesting
may be it’s because of the changes
she makes- masculine feminine tone. She
is quite good with the rap. This is a song
that has been specially made for the dance
floors one guesses. If you are a music lover
you may not enjoy this kind of music but
if you like dancing then may be you would
like the song.
Jaane Na (Reprise Version)...
Vocals: Soham, Rana Mazumdar
and Ashish Pandit
This one is as soulful as the original but
if you are a fan of Atif you will surely
like the original version. But to give credit
to Soham he has also done full justice to
the lyrics and music. There is more of Indian
tabla and beats to this version, also sufi
like music which makes you want to listen
to the song again.
Main Tera Dhadkan Teri (Remix)...
Vocals: KK , Sunidhi Chauhan
The original itself was like a remix version
so what was the necessity in having another
remix version? One wonders! There are not
many changes just the pace increased with
more beats and more rap.
Tu Jaane Na (Remix Version)...
Vocals: Atif Aslam
Another remix version you wonder? What’s
with the music directors of today? Are they
confused about what works with the audience
that they remix the song in as many tunes
as possible. There is nothing different
in this version yet again. Only the pace
is much faster in fact they could have had
this as the original version as there are
not many people who enjoy very slow numbers
list of remix version continues with Prem
Ki Nayya. Four versions of the same song?
God knows for what? The list is never ending.
Please just listen to the original tracks
and forget these versions.
There are 14 tracks in the movie and one
will surely not be bored listening to the
original tracks. Only when the remix versions
start the music gets a little monotonous
and actually irritating. But a very good
effort on the whole and one point to be
noted is the choice of singers. There has
been an effort and one that has paid off.
The singers for the songs have been aptly
chosen providing a variety.
Also Pritam has provided a variety with
the music. There is hip hop, romantic ballads,
and disco peppy tracks. There is something
for everyone. The choice of instruments
is also very interesting especially the
tabla and shenoy which gives a very Indian
feel to the music. Many of the songs will
hit the chart busters but a favorite with
many will surely be the romantic numbers
Tera Hone Laga Hoon and Tu Jaane Na.
The only irritating factor is the increasing
number of remix versions. It is like the
practice session of a classical or carnatic
singer when they sing in three different
paces. Absolutely unnecessary for the movie
