Need a veena teacher?
That's what you'll see on the promos, and the slogan that marriages are made in heaven. For all that, this album's made on the assembly line
After Mohabbatein, which showed a bespectacled Shah Rukh Khan playing a violin, here's muscular Salman Khan hugging a guitar.
Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik sing a very forgettable title track, and wonder for our hero and heroine whether they are falling in love. Savariya has Kamaal Khan -- remember him singing Oh o jaane jaana to which Salman flings away his shirt?
Want some good old disco style orchestration? Aa meri life starts in this mode. The only thing different about it is that it uses two pop stars, Kamaal Khan and Sunita Rao.
O priya is the most dignified pop track on this side. How come? Because it is 'inspired' by Carlos Santana's Maria. The deep bass complements the tinkling piano runs and unexpected chords strike up some colour. Kamaal Khan, Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Nitin Mukesha and chorus sing this tune interspersed with alaap phrases which seem to be Himesh's contribution to the tune. But you can't make out who sings the alaap.
Theme, sung by Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik, is dull. The duet again worries about falling in love, Kahin pyar na ho jaye. They din this line so much into your head that you fervently begin to pray that they fall in love and leave you alone.
Dhin tara races all over the scale with a more than normal nasal Kumar Sanu and a chorus. The beat is so hard it could knock you out flat.
