Jo Hum Chahein – Music Review (Bollywood Movie Soundtrack)

Aaj Bhi Party, with Suraj Jagan on vocals, is standard party song template – techno base, onomatopoeic words in lyrics etc etc. Groovy, but tedious. Ishq Hothon Se is more engaging, despite again following the standard Bollywood melody formula. KK and Shreya, and some nice touches from Sachin Gupta like the distortion base underlying the lead hook. Peepni is another song on the lines of Aaj Bhi Party albeit on a Punjabi line, and has similar effects. Jaspreet Singh and Mona Thakur do the vocal honors in this one. Pick of the soundtrack is Abhi Abhi, Sasha Tirupati kicking off with a sparkling cameo (her debut, if I am not wrong) and KK carrying it on, with an ethereal arrangement by Sachin Gupta to back it all up. Total winner (though I must add the style is quite evocative of Tujhe Bhula Diya)! One More One More would have worked better if not for the lyrics, the title refrain especially sounds, well.. Interesting groove and fantastic singing by Neeraj Shridhar and Sunidhi though.

In Jo Hum Chahein Sachin Gupta produces another score which has flashes of brilliance, but fails to deliver anything refreshingly memorable on a soundtrack level.
