Music Check on 70 mm - Music complements this Ajab Kahani

tags

MUMBAI: Targeted at the youth primarily, �Ajab prem ki gazab kahani's music has tremendous appeal for the younger generation. The songs in the film are well placed and Pritam has managed to strike the right chord with peppy songs and stamp a hit with the vocals crooned by current Bollywood rulers- Atif Aslam and Neeraj Sridhar.

Rendered by Javed Ali, �Ajao meri tammana' is the first track in the film. The song has nothing impressive and as it wasn't hammered much, is the unnoticed track in the album.

â€?Prem ki naaiya' is a perky number well choreographed by Ahmed Khan. Picturised on the lead pair, Ranbir looks fresh and animated in the song. Portions of the song have been shot in 11 East street caf?©, Pune and has a youthful appeal.

The music album had two versions of �Tu jaane na', sung by Atif Aslam and Kailash Kher. No brownie points for guessing that Tips-favored Aslam's song was used and Kailash's soulful version was dumped in the final cut. The video of Tu Jaane na is shot in Turkey and is a visual treat with the contrast of black and white mode. Katrina Kaif looks every bit an eye candy in the film and the duo portray a couple in love effortlessly.

Right from the trailers, �Tera hone laga hoon' managed to grab eye balls and became one of the most played songs from the album. The song captures the freshness of romance between the lead characters and oozes effervescence on the screen with their vivacious energy.

In the last track �Mein tera dhadkan teri', Ranbir and Katrina sizzle with their dance moves. Although part of the audio CD, �Oh by god' rendered by Sunidhi Chauhan and Mika doesn't find a place in the film.

All in all, the songs complement the flow of the film and Pritam fans will not be disappointed. For those who don't patronize Pritam, the songs would still appeal as they facilitate the passage of the film.
