Lyrics : Swanand Kirkire
The music maestro is back in Hindi after 'Cheeni Kum' with the same team. Balki directs this movie about a kid who has a rare disease which makes him age faster. And Balki not just got A.B. Corp to produce this movie but also made a casting coup which made everyone sit up by casting Amitabh as the son of Abhishek. With so much going in favour of this movie, music lovers were waiting for the music launch with bated breath. Let’s see if the maestro can recreate the Cheeni Kum magic.

Halke Se Bole...
Vocals: Chorus

A small song about kids and the need to be ambitious. A sweet little song to start the process.

Mudhi Mudhi Ittefaq Se...
Vocals: Shilpa Rao

First among the 'Ittefaq Se' series is Mudhi Mudhi and it starts of with drums and trumpets and then Shilpa Rao takes over. The liveliness of the song and the singer make you fall in love with this song. The low running time of this song can be because it has 2 other versions but not remixes mind you. A clean entertaining song!

Gali Mudhi Ittefaq Se...
Vocals: Shaan

A slow one talking about how life has changed, sung extremely well by Shaan. Mandalin and slow drumming after the pallavi are used extremely well. Again a very small number which had its moments while playing. Nice hear.

Udhi Udhi Ittefaq Se...

Vocals: Shilpa Rao

The last of the Ittefaq Se series is again a lively one and except for lyrics and excessive drum and other instrument usage, there is no big difference which you would notice in this version from Mudhi Mudhi.

Paa theme (Remix)...
Vickky Goswami

A lively theme which sets the tone of the movie and tells you clearly there will be only little rona-dona in this story about a kid who has got a rare disease. With some interesting musical usage and chorus usage this is a pleasant hear.

Mere Paa...
Amitabh Bachchan

This is a song about the diseased kid writing a letter about his mother to his Paa. After hearing this song there is only one person you can think of. Even though a superlative Ilayaraja has composed music for this and amazing lyrics are written by Swanand Kirkire, you would surely not recognize this singer who is none other than the Big B himself and this should be heard to be believed. This one will surely grow on you.

Hichki Hichki...
Vocals: Sunidhi Chauhan

Sunidhi Chauhan starts this amazing song about a mother advising her son in a language he will understand. The song has superior lyrical value. The instrumental usage makes it a treat to hear too. Sunidhi Chauhan again proves that she is the queen.

Ghum Sum ghum...
Vocals: K. Bavatharani, Shravan and Chorus

The famous 'Sangathil Paadatha Kavidhai' which later got bigger in Malayalam in the form of 'Thumbivaa' gets even bigger in Hindi. With some amazing interludes of guitar, piano and trumpet starts this symphony about kids trying to advice the elders to live king size life and don’t get bogged down for each and every second. Ilayaraja’s touches are present all over. And when you think that somewhere the magic of Thumbivaa is missing, comes the last stanza of 'anupallavi' sung by Bavadharani and Sharavan which just grabs your heart.


It’s a fabulous follow up to 'Cheeni Kum' from the maestro. With more than four songs, this is a ‘must hear’ album which will be lapped up by all music lovers and ardent followers of Ilayaraja alike. An album with heart all over it, a treat from the God of music!
