The team that gave us the Brilliant music with Taaren Zameen Par is back with its latest offering in the form of TPTM (tHODA pYAR tHODA mAGIC ) . Well , after Tashan which is a disaster this one comes as a total different album from Yashraj Music . Though it is different from Tashan but still I think it lacks some luster and has not much to offer . Shankar-ehsan-loy and Prasoon Joshi together made a very classic album in form of Taare Zammen Par , so expectations automatically rise but they have not delivered as per the expectations . The album has Five originals and Two Remixes .
The first song on the soundtrack is Pyaar Ke Liye by Shankar Mahdevan which is probably the most balanced track on the album , considering it has a nice mix of both lyrics and music . The music , in general , is very western influenced throughout the album and same is the case with this song . The melody is very western and might sound like you've heard it before yet it will be liked by you . The music is very much influenced by the locations and situations of a movie and may be it has some situations that are usually seen in western light hearted flicks . The song is very well sung by Shankar and has some good chorus in it . It is a soft track and might go very well when it has good situation attached to it .
The second song on the track is Nihal Ho gayi which is again sung by Shankar and is a much more faster song than the first one and has some bhangra beats in it . The song has good lyrical content but lacks the newness in melody . This song sounds typical Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy track and has no new melody in it thats why it doesn't score in my books . It is an usual track for me even though it has good lyrics . Here SEL have failed to an extent .
The third track is by Sunidhi Chauhan and Shankar Mahadevan which is a kiddy track and meant only for kids. Recently , SEL and Prasoon made a kids track in Taare Zameen Par i.e. Bam Bam Bhole which was a great success . This is nowhere close to it and is completely different in nature . This sounds more like an english rhyme that we used to sing when we were kids . Sunidhi has sung it in her very own style and the song is OK but might not get as poular as Bam Bam Bhole did because it might not connect with adult listeners like Bam Bam Bhole did , even though it was a kiddie song .
Then comes Lazy Lamhe which is sung by Anusha Mani which is very fresh to hear since it has been sung very well by Anusha but again the music , though good , sounds very much inspired . The song has some strange lyrics and is kinda fusion track but the style with which Anusha has sung has stood out . It is a more sensual track and might feature the leading actors of the movie . Overall , the track is good but nothing that special , though it might get popular .
Beetay Kal Se is the last original track on the Album and is again meant for kids and has Teaching mode type of Lyrics with Vocals by Rani Mukerjee in between . Shreya has done her usual stuff . Again , nothing in it to become popular but might look good in the movie and may be teach a thing or two to the kids audience . Its nice to see that Directors are thinking of Indian Kids and making films for them .
Then it has two remixes , both by DJ Aqeel , of Nihaal Ho Gayi and Lazy Lamhe . The remix has been done quite well and infact the remix of Lazy Lamhe sounds better than the original and may be it would work in the public even more than the original . Good track for Discs and Pubs . DJ Aqeel though has used his tune from the "Waada Karo" remix which came last year which was quite good .
In all , the soundtrack is great as compared to yashraj's last offering Tashan . But in general it is not as good as it should be and might not be a superhit . The tracks are average and can be heard once and might even look good in the movie but nothing in it to become excessively popular . The two Tracks I liked on the album are "Pyaar Ke Liye " and The DJ Aqeel remix of Lazy Lamhe .
Music Rating : Two and half stars out of Five . Pretty normal stuff .
