After a long time, music channels and web portals all over are abuzz with the song promos of two films, MILENGE MILENGE and KAJRAARE. Coincidentally both these films have one name in common, Himesh Reshammiya. Not very long ago, there was a time when any musical offering from Himesh Reshammiya was lapped up by his fans and one could hear them playing in every nook and corner of the cities, towns and villages, such was Himesh's popularity.
However, things are pretty different now with Himesh turning actor and deciding not to compose for films (other then those starring him). Most of his films (barring AAP KA SURROOR) have flopped and even the popularity of his music could not reach the desired and at times the deserved success (read RADIO).
Now with MILENGE MILENGE and KAJRAARE it seems certain that it's Himesh the composer that the public wants. We have news from trade sources that Boney Kapoor’s MILENGE MILENGE, which marks the come back of ex flames Shahid Kapoor and Kareena Kapoor is quite hot in the trade circle. Its number, "Kuch To Baaki Hai" seems to have done the trick and is selling quite well in the stores. Quite a contrast to Himesh’s own KAJRARE which despite some good music and promotion has not seen much hype and sale. And it also seems quite impossible that the film (or its music) will be able to generate much public interest.
Well, public has given its thumbs down to Himesh, the actor but not Himesh the composer and we are pretty sure that once Himesh starts composing for other films and actors he will definitely see the success he deserves.
