Dum Laga Ke Haisha (Music review), Hindi – Anu Malik

Posted by Karthik

Anu Malik channelizes his Ashoka/Refugee form again in Moh moh ke dhaage and in the two versions, by Papon and Monali Thakur, has a clear and easy winner! The title song is a messy hodge-podge, despite Kailash Kher and Nooran sisters. Barring the mod keyboard sound, Kumar Sanu’s Tu is a lovely, nostalgic throwback to the 90s, tune-wise; ditto with Dard karaara, that stays true in all sense – tune and orchestra. Except the quirky lyrics, Sunder susheel is more gimmicky than tuneful, while Papon powers Prem’s theme in his rich vocals. Minor comeback of sorts by veteran Anu Malik!

    I came on here expecting a bad review. I am relieved!!! As far as your comments, this is probably one of his best soundtracks in years then. I am so excited to listen to this now.

    Sundar Susheel is “inspired” from his own two songs: Pyar Hoga from Imtihan (1994) and Main Khiladi Tu Anari title song. Tho i am sure any Anu Malik fan knows this familar mantra.

    Moh mod ke daage/dard karara are great, and i love it when anu brings sadhana sargam back (he did this with Jaaneman nearly 10 yrs ago). Sunder susheel is ok only because of his familar source and the nostalgia (plus MKTA is one of the best ever). The title song is whatever.

    WHAT the HELL is wity Tu? Its like 2 minutes long. Kumar sanu and anu reunite for a solo and we cant even get a full song?

    7/10 – strong slow/ love songs which dont surprise me since he always good at those

      Prem’s theme is an instrumental version of Moh Mod Ke Daage…

      Which also reminds me of an older song. I can’t figure it out and it’s going to bother me all day.

        It’s not an instrumental version of moh moh. Lol it’s similar but anywqy I figured it out, sort of, it’s the humming/background tune of tum juda ho kar from kareeb.

        First few parts reminds me of Papon’s own song from Special 26, composed by Keervani

    Moh Moh ke dhaage is indeed a decent effort while two kumar Sanu tracks do take me down the memory lane with a smile on my face.
    Having said that, man obviously is low in confidence and so arrangements are sloppy in places and sound leaves a lot to be desired for. Hope this opportunity does the trick for him and we get to hear more quality music from the veteran.
