Chords and Notes


EK KHILADI EK HASEENA

T-series, Rs.135

Keeping pace with the trend here comes one more album high on style low on content. It opens well with the foot tapping number "Ishq Hai Jhoota" sung by Kunal Ganjawala and Sunidhi Chauhan. Pritam continues to impress with the beats but post Dhoom, he hasn't found able support from the lyricists.

After "Ishq", rest is all-repetitive, be it "Jal Jal Ke Dhuan" or "Yaaron". Another number that stands out is "Jhoom", where newcomer Suzzane D'Mello manages to add the sensual zing to the suggestive verse of Shabbir Ahmad.


AISE NA DEKHO MUJHE

T-Series, Rs.135

Once he spelled mush, today Kumar Sanu is a pale shadow of his Ashiqui and Saajan days. Part of the reason is Sanu failed to grow. He stagnated to a repetition mode and public put a pause on his voice. He impresses when he takes a break for public gets a break from his voice.


Here he sounds refreshing in the title song "Aise Na Dekho Mujhe". The voice is suitably pleasing for Sanu has always been good at low pitch.

The words by Nusrat Badr are full of meaning. But as the album progresses, Sanu again falls in the rut and each note starts sounding the same. Grow up Sanu or keep on taking breaks.

KAUN HO SAKTA HAI?

Das Music, Rs.99

Disco King Bappi Lahiri returns with a forgettable effort. He manages to rope in all the big names from Sonu Nigam to Sunidhi Chauhan to Kunal Ganjawala but the result remains pathetic. "Ye Nadiya" by Sonu Nigam is the saving grace if one is forced to choose one. Bappi himself tries to pace up things with "Apun Kya Bolta Hai" but to no avail. The king had lost his Midas touch long back but now it seems even the feel for the lilt is waning.
