Veteran producer Jayantilal Gada's next outing under his Pen India Ltd. banner, DO LAFZON KI KAHANI, directed by Deepak Tijori is a remake of a Korean movie ALWAYS. Music is expected to be good as new generation composers Amaal Malik; Ankit Tiwari etc head the department.
Amaal Malik's opening track, 'Kuch Toh Hai
' has the soft undertones and arrangements of a classy love song but the tune that he chooses is almost like a lullaby, lazy and drawling and in fact the song is sung by Armaan Malik in quite a similar manner. But overall the song does carry that nice love ditty feel.
Altamash Faridi excels in the rock based sufi inspired 'Jeena Marna
' composed by Babli Haque which is certainly a good number with lovely lyrics but the song reminds one of the many songs from the Emraan-Bhatt ventures.
Palak Muchal reprises 'Jeena Marna
' and she does well and one does not mind a repeat hear.
Crisps guitar strings and harmonica and soft male chorals along with nice signature tune (the violin is class) heralds Kanika Kapoor's sad, separation Punjabi number, 'Ankhiyan
' composed by Arjuna Harjai, the first original (we mean fresh) tune. Kanika's vocals suit the 'judaai
Ankit Tiwari's 'Sehra
' again sees him in his oft repetitive ('Tu Hai Ke Nahin
' ROY) mode, be it the tune or arrangements or his singing but even though the song has a heard before feel, it's a good one time heard.
The audio of DO LAFZON KI KAHANI does not actually meet the standards set by composers of the calibre of Amaal, Ankit who revisit some of their own popular numbers and offer nothing novel. Even Babli Haque follows suit, although his 'Jeena Marna
' and 'Ankhiyan
' will be our pick in this album. The movie releases all over on 10th June. Music Review Rating Chart :-
