This Rajaji is no scholar

Rs 40

At first the title Rajaji seems to be a mystery, being very South Indian and not sounding right for this Govinda- Raveena starrer. Then it becomes clear, it is Raja with the ji acting as a respectful suffix. The film has songs tuned by Anand- Milind. Sameer has penned the lyrics.

A Side features two duets by Kumar Sanu with Alka Yagnik and Sapna Mukherjee. But Kumar Sanu's terrible nasal imitation of Kishore Kumar's voice is grating. Sunday ki raat is quite a nice song with a small solo violin bit. Alka Yagnik's Tere pyar mein is a fast agreeable tune reminding you a bit of Jaane jaan by R D Burman from Dharam Karam. Side B features the same song by Udit Narayan. Vinod Rathod's Rajaji Rajaji has the easy sales pitch tune, a mixture of rusticity in Hindi film style.

Anuradha Paudwal after a long absence has a sexy rain-scene duet with Udit Narayan, Rut nai nai. A change from the bhajans. The song has these very noticeable flute bits aspiring to the style of Ilaiya Raja. Quite the best song in the film. Poornima's song Sasuji is again strong in rustic accents thanks to her Ila Arun style of singing.
