The versatile and multiple award (prestigious Dada Saheb Phalke and National Award) winning director Rajiv S. Ruia, known more for his iconic children film, MY FRIEND GANESHA (series) , tries his hand at romantic horror with SAANSEIN. Composer Vivek Kar whose albums like ONE NIGHT STAND has already made a mark, handles the musical department.


The playlist begins with the sufi based 'Mera Ishq', a lovely love ballad that catches attention right away. Rendered by king of romantic numbers, Arijit Singh and supported by Ash King and Sawti Sharma (with backing vocals by Dev Negi and Joy Baurah) this number thrives due to superb instrumentations (dholak, flute and guitar) and lovely English chorals.

Lovely piano notes commences, 'Tum Jo Mile' (which can also be classified as the title song), is a lovely sad, separation song about 'milna and bichadna' that has some heart touching lyrics by Kumaar. Despite the song being sad in nature, the rhythm and tune is quite a catchy, the chorus along with the crescendo scintillating. Armaan Malik renders the number with emotions.

'Tum Jo Mile' (unplugged), rendered with minimal background addendums by Amit Gupta and Pratap Dodla makes for a lovely repeat hear.

Another sad, separation number where the lead pines for his beloved and questions her existence and judgement , 'Tum Ho Mere'. Najam Bajwa's unique but very heart touching vocals add to the mystique of this situational number with just the right orchestration.

Dev Negi gets to render the chartbusting 'Dil Yeh Khamakha' , a superb romantic composition that boasts of catchy and addictive tune (the mukhda and chorus 'dil yeh khamakha nahin dhadka the best part) nice arrangements and lovely lyrics. The whistles are great.

Nikhil D'Souza reprises 'Dil Yeh Khamakha' and who minds a repeat of a chartbuster!

The first all female track, 'Royi', sung with emotions (Shibani Sur) projects the feelings of hurt and fear and gives an insight into the character of the female lead where she expresses her helplessness and despair and no hope in sight. Vivek adorns this situational number with some eerie background techo arrangements.

In a nutshell, composer Vivek Kar does a great job and all the compositions are quite good. 'Mera Ishq', 'Tum Jo Mile' (both versions) and 'Dil Yeh Khamakha' are our picks. The (apparently)chartbusting music (so very essential for a romantic horror flick) and equally good promotion should surely help secure the patrons of horror flicks and music buffs frequent cinemas when SAANSEIN releases all over.
