3 established stars in a trivial looking movie.  Presented by Anushka  eimages and directed by Shashi Ranjan, Dobara  stars Jackie Shroff, Mahima Chaudhary and Raveena Tandon in the lead roles.  With Anu Malik  (the composer cum singer) and Javed Akhtar entrusted the task of music and lyrics respectively, there is a little excitement to listen and comment on the compositions.  

"Mujhse Kyon" inaugurates the album and quite well indeed, as the track does have a very peaceful and pleasant melody and with Alka Yagnik doing the vocal honors, one can only expect best results. The song has a typical 80's amiable feel along with sensible lyrics that only add to the value.

You can shake a leg or two with "Hamnasheen", which is again a subtle dance number. Alisha Chinoy's trendy and mesmerizing vocals set the ball rolling for some mid night groove. Anu Malik briefly joins Alisha for the duet complimenting to the feel of the track. The tune is somewhat melodious, but could have been better. Instrument play is impressive, but sounds inspired from God knows how many latest remixes (Anu after all!). Javed Akhtar elegantly uses the phrase "Time and Tide wait for none".

Hariharan is wasted in "Tum abhi". Inspite of Hariharan's velvety vocals, the track fails to make an impact simply because the tune is deficient. The music in the background is comforting. Javed Akhtar does an exemplary job with lyrics, which are thoughtful and poignant. This track has been repeated on side B on the cassette by Alka Yagnik, which is just as good. As a matter of fact, one might give an extra point to the female version, as Alka sounds more convincing while expressing her grief for her lost love.
