Anjaana Anjaani (Music review), Hindi – Vishal Shekhar

Posted by Karthik

The Pancham touch is smart and subtle in the title song‘s background; the enthusiasm quotient, in large part by Nikhil D’Souza and Monali Thakur’s vocals, is obvious and addictive. The second title song, featuring Vishal and Shilpa Rao is completely different and fuses Vishal Shekhar’ish rock with the Indian impressively! Lucky Ali completely rocks Hairat; familiar Vishal-Shekhar territory, no doubt, but they innovate even within that and produce lovely results, but Rahat Fateh Ali Khan’s Aas paas khuda, despite the captivating arrangements, is tepid, tune-wise. With its strong Salaam Namaste hangover, if Tumse hi tumse still works, it is solely because of Shekhar and Caralisa’s spirited vocals. The soundtrack truly takes off with Tujhe bhula diya and I feel good; the former is a lyrically-staid judai track, incredibly jump-started by Shruti Pathak, Mohit Chauhan and Shekhar’s fabulous vocals and sparkling mod-qawali phrases, while the latter is absolutely breezy with a punchy hook! It is usually expected that Vishal Shekhar get their sound very right; here they do – no surprises. The tunes do start to sound similar to their earlier soundtracks, but then they have this knack of getting perfect hooks that works big time. Anjaana Anjaani’s music is no exception!

  • This comment may be a little late, but I think the main tune of ‘Tujhe bhula diya’ is heavily inspired from the main tune of ‘Dragostea din tei’ by O-zone, better known as the ‘numa numa’ song from ‘Chicken Little’. Listen and decide for yourself – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i3K5LHDJUbo the portion after 0:48 to be precise. πŸ™‚ Or I could be totally wrong as well. πŸ˜‰

    Sonnenlicht,
    Listen to the background music of this movie(Anjaana Anjaani), it is awesome!
    Much better than the soundtrack itself (in parts).
