Falguni goes to the movies

Pyar Koi Khel Nahin
Rs 40

Falguni Pathak sang Yaad piya ki aane lage for a pop album sometime ago. That song is on this tape too.

There are two versions of this song, one with a heavy Punjabi beat and choral interludes, and the other a sad version with violins. In the sad version she emotes well.

Kuch namare hai is a soft duet by Alka Yagnik and Udit Narayan. The interludes use the electronic guitar, brass and violins, and might remind you of songs from Silsila Hai Pyaar Ka. Majrooh's lyrics talk about dreams and how they must be shared.

Tere galo ki lali is a wedding song by Alka Yagnik, Udit Narayan and chorus. Nothing new, but the backup violins sound good. Some interludes remind you of Dilwale Dulhania Le Jayenge. Kumar Sanu sings Pyaar koi khel nahin with feeling. It is among the better songs in the album. An interlude uses violins, guitars, and the electronic piano, and the chords change pleasantly. The beat is light. This song too has a sad version.

Nazar Milte Hi is sung by Alka Yagnik and Vinod Rathod. It uses electronic instruments on a disco beat. There is nothing really great about the lyrics, and the singing is okay. Alka has some trouble reaching the high notes.

Asha Bhonsle sings Apne to life mein style, which says young people just want 'style' and 'smile' throughout life. The beat is catchy, but the song is loud, with a lot of brass and electronic instruments and some violins.

Ladke ne ladki ko cheda is sung by Abhijeet, and is rather slow. The beat varies, now there is a Punjabi beat and the next moment there is a disco beat. The electronic guitar and violins sound good.

Sudesh Bhosle sings with a put-on voice in Chand sa lalla and shows how well he can mimic other voices. The harmonium bits play on a steady beat. The song, violin-free, is about the birth of a boy.

Pyaar Koi Khel Nahin features a variety of songs, but they may remind you of this duo's older hits.
