The reason this movie caught my eye is because Anu Malik is doing the music. The majority of people may believe that his best days are behind him, but I’m in the minority who thinks that he still has something left. I still remember the gold old days in the 90s when every other movie had music composed by him. Despite his heavy workload during that decade, Anu Malik was consistent in delivering hits.

In 2006 he impressed with Jaaneman and then disappointed with Zindaggi Rocks. With Jaaneman he proved (to me at least) that he still has something left in the musical bank…

  • Shagufta Dil (Shaan) – The song starts off nicely and it seems Anu Malik is really back. BUT then the part “shagufta dil” ruins everything! I am not sure what Anu Malik and/or Shaan were thinking but that part sounds horrible and manages to ruin an otherwise decent song. Rating: ★½☆☆☆
  • Aayo Re (Sunidhi Chauhan) – I dislike songs that take too long to start and this one takes a minute and a half to do so. And when the song does start you realize it wasn’t worth the wait anyways. Rating: ★☆☆☆☆
  • Saath (Anu Malik, Sunidhi Chauhan) – Although I am (or was rather) a fan of Anu Malik’s music, I dislike him as a singer. In fact to this day I wish he hadn’t sung Jaanam Samjha Karo himself. The song would have been so much better with some other male singer! A while ago I saw the promo for this song on Youtube. One of the comments read “eww horrible song“. Yup, that comment pretty much sums it up. Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆
  • Aashiqui (Shaan) – This song is neither good or bad. Its just one of those “whatever” songs nobody really cares about. Rating: ½☆☆☆☆
  • Overall Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

This soundtrack will give Jimmy a run for its money as the worst soundtrack this year. It seems that instead of going with his own style, Anu Malik is trying too hard to replicate the styles of the current hit composers (Pritam, Himesh Reshammiya, VS, and SEL). Unfortunately this will not work. If he wants any chances at a comeback, he needs to stick with what he is comfortable with.

Anamika is a complete miss from Anu Malik.
