Yash Raj Film's DUM LAGA KE HAISHA
is also director Maneesh Sharma's (BAND BAAJA BAARAAT fame) debut venture as a producer. It marks the comeback of quite a few veteran and famous names of the music industry like composer Anu Malik, singers Kumar Sanu, Sadhna Sargam and Malini Awasthi. And so there are good expectations from the audio which also boasts of young and talented names like Papon and Rahul Ram.
Papon's magical rendition, coupled with some absolutely superb desi/Hindustani
musical arrangements (flute, harmonium) and situational lyrics that convey the disturbed state of mind are the highlights of 'Moh Moh Ke Dhaage
Monali Thakur's version is classy and makes for a good repeat hear.
Seasoned Kailash Kher and budding sufi singers, the Nooran sisters, Jyoti and Sultana (of 'Patakha Guddi
' HIGHWAY fame), create quite a 'sama'
(atmosphere) with their eclectic renditions in the very apt title track, 'Dum Laga Ke Haisha

It's vintage Kumar Sanu in the romantic ditty, 'Tu
'. The situational song (the lead protagonist is a Kumar Sanu fan) appears to be rehashed version of Sanu's old super hit romantic numbers. But will surely be loved by all his fans.
Malini Awasthi and Rahul Ram bring a smile on the face of the listeners with their superb 'jugalbandi
' in 'Sunder Susheel
'. A number that talks about what the leads expect from their would-be (s), it's also the lyrics that stand out.
Even though the tune that Anu chooses for 'Dard Karara
' is reminiscent of his AKELE HUM AKELE TUM and BAAZIGAR days, but it's indeed a sheer pleasure hearing both Kumar Sanu and Sadhna Sargam.
' is actually a lovely piece with absolutely no lyrics but only Papon's awesome croonings in different pitches, accompanied just by simple and lovely guitar strums. A good and novel effort indeed.
In a nutshell, the audio of Yash Raj's DUM LAGA KE HAISHA, is a classy fare but might not mark the strong comeback of some of the greatest musical talents as it lacks universal appeal, especially amongst gen X (may be due to its rural set up and theme). All said and done, the music is refreshingly 'hatke
' and numbers like 'Moh Moh Ke Dhaage
' and 'Sunder Susheel
' do stay in memory and the songs (which are situational), might attain their deserved popularity after the release of the film.Music Review Rating Chart :-
