Jashnn – The Music Within Music Review

For every nobody who wants to be a somebody! Queer as it may sound but that's the tagline of the film JASHNN-THE MUSIC WITHIN. And this applies more to the Bhatts than any other producers in the film industry. Yes, it's indeed true that the Bhatts have certainly made many a nobody, a definite somebody in the film industry. One such example is the highly successful composer duo, Nadeem – Shravan, who they introduced through their superhit film, AASHIQUI.

The Bhatts have been known for highly memorable music down the years and any album from their stable is always looked forward to and remains in demand by music lovers, both from the class as well as the mass. However, their last album, RAAZ-THE MYSTERY CONTINUES, had disappointed to a large extent and except for the ''Maahi'' track there was no other composition that impressed.

May be keeping that mind, Mukesh Bhatt has roped in Sharib-Toshi to compose for their latest musical offering, JASHNN. So, let's see if the composer duo, with help from the extremely versatile and talented Nauman Javaid and KABHI KHUSHI KABHIE GHAM and CHAMELI composer Sandesh Shandilya give the Bhatts a reason to celebrate (Jashnn!)

Sharib – Toshi choose a very simple but enchantingly melodious composition, ''Nazrein Karam'' to begin the album. Simple, because of the arrangements which rely heavily on soft beats, simple guitar strums and lovely soothing back up vocals. The choice of K.K as the singer surprises, but once when we hear the whole song, we know why!

The high octave singing that K.K. is known for comes to the fore beautifully and matching him step for step, from high to low octave is our very own, Shreya Ghoshal, the newly crowned nightingale of Hindi film music. Together they constitute a formidable team as they croon this beautifully hummable song that has chartbuster written all over. Lyrics by Kumaar are filmy but effective. Definitely a superb number first up, and the whole team needs a pat on the back for giving us a fresh, romantic track that would be savoured by the young Gen as well as the die hard romantics.

The ''Nazrein Karam-Kilogram Mix'' is beautifully done as the essence of romance that dwelled in its relaxed pace and simple arrangements has been kept intact and only the necessary ingredients to spice up the track have been added.

Since the lead protagonist of the movie is an aspiring singer, naturally we have ''Aaye Re'', an out and out dance track that has a nice rhythm as well as some good musical arrangements. The background arrangements suggest that its a stage performance during a rock concert, what with all the claps and whistles and loud cheering.

Coming to the song itself, the composer duo have another hit number up their sleeve, and they need to be applauded for some amazing fusion of rock and Calypso beats. The hard rock guitaring is brilliant and lifts the tempo of the track. The master of music concert songs, K.K., does it once again putting in his best. He is simply superb as he sings in the mode of a rock star; his enthusiasm is to be heard to be believed! The lyrics by Kumaar may sound routine, but so is the situation!

The next track, ''Dard-E-Tanhai'', is a trademark number from the house of Raksha and Hasnain, whose debut film, THE TRAIN, had Emraan Hashmi rocking the nation with the super hit ''Zindagi ''.

Looks like they have insisted upon another one, as this number too is in the same corridor as its predecessor. And it would be easy to predict its fate; a sure fire hit like ''Zindagi''! Lovely fresh arrangements, relying heavily on piano, guitar and of course drums and plates, having the backing of a superb rhythm, which is the USP of the track, apart from the singer himself, who is absolutely mesmerizing.

Nauman Javaid is another Atif Aslam in the making, as his vocals are strong, sonorous and he sings with feelings. The singer has a bright future ahead. Another aspect that deserves applause are the lyrics which are so apt that they fit in like a hand in glove, the situation may be routine but the lyricist, Nauman Javaid is class apart. Appears to be a pro this guy!

Another performance, which leaves you in awe, is that of Humayun Sayeed. Wikipedia tells me that this actor is from across the border. He matches Shahana, emotion for emotion and compliments her in his body language, dialogue delivery and tone of voice. Not once does he react. If producers don't break down his door, I will be very surprised.

Anjana Sukhani takes time to come into her own and has some beautiful moments with Adhayan.

Now for Adhayan Suman. JASHNN is his coming of age. An explosion of emotions. Adhayan displays all with a maturity one never sensed he had. After a disastrous HAAL-E-DIL and an average RAAZ 2, he impresses with his handling of a sensitive character where it was very easy for any actor to go over the top. Adhayan's Akash stays in sync with the situation, moving you to tears.

The music is soothing, which adds to the overall appeal of JASHNN directed by Raksha Mistry and Hasnain S Hyderabadwala.

This movie will rock! The Bhatts have another winner on their hands
