Director – Farah Khan

Music Composer – Vishal Shekhar

Our Rating - 3/5

With Om Shanti Om, the expectations are obviously high as director Farah Khan teams up yet again with superstar SRK and duo Vishal Shekhar come together to create a magic from beats and music. The album has lived up to expectations of some, but has disappointed many as well.

Ajab Si is one of the best romantic tracks of 2007 because of its soulful tune. It is unconventional enough to break the norms of existing romantic numbers, and keeps from becoming monotonous. The lyrics by Vishal himself also come as a surprise. One of the most versatile singers of the industry, KK, has lent his voice to this song, taking it to an altogether different level.

Dard-e-Disco has been flaunted on air way too much for SRK's perfect-six-abs than for its music. This one track has all the beats in sync with each other to create a very lively atmosphere.

Marianne, Nisha and Caralisa come together for backup vocals, giving the song a perfect disco feel. The remixed of version of the same is a complete dance floor number all ready to rule the Saturday night slots on FM stations.

Dastaan E Om Shanti Om is a very clich?©d track and wouldn't be liked by all for sure. It sounds like one of those tracks from the 1980s, but probably that's the requirement of the movie. Dastaan (The Dark Side Mix) sung by Shaan is more or less similar to Dastaan E Om Shanti Om as far as the beats and tone of the song are concerned. Not much should be expected from these two tracks which remind of the song ' Yeh Shahhar hai aman ka' from the film Raaz.

Deewangi Deewangi is one song that would hook you in the first go itself. With Shaan, Udit Narayan, Shreya Ghoshal, Sunidhi Chouhan and Rahul Saxena (of Indian Idol fame), this is one rocker of a track. The chants of Om Shanti Om within the song give it a very celebratory feel. The Rainbow Mix of this song stands out brilliantly as compared to the original.

Dhoom Taana is quite a fluctuating track from the conventional to the
