Paathshaala

The only redeeming factor in this score is the lead track Ae khuda whose lyrics are,if not original,at least meaningful.

The only redeeming factor in this score is the lead track Ae khuda whose lyrics are,if not original,at least meaningful. The rest of the songs lack lyrical value,melody and the singing too is generally cacophonous.

Jaane Kahan Se Aayi Hai
T-Series,Rs 130
Keh do zaraa suffers from flat drawls and expressionless rendition from Rashid Ali. But Shaan does a nice job of the title-track that has an infectious mukhda. The two Sonu duets Nacha main with Soumya) and Koi rok lo (with Sunidhi) are just average. Like the score.

Piya- Indipop By Mitali Chaudhry
Worldwide Records,Rs 125
This is not strictly Indipop but a fairly melodious album – and Mitali is an assured singer. Two songs stand out – Aey pal and Bairi piya. They are exceptionally well-composed (Tabun) and rendered.

My Name Is Ajitabh
Worldwide Records,Rs 125
Ajitabh writes,composes and sings – and his skills are in the reverse order. He sings well and is an average composer and lyricist. That said,we must say that the sound of the album (orchestration and mixing-mastering) is far superior to most releases today. The two tracks that leave an impression are Manchaahe raste par and Zakhmi jigar bada hai.

Shibani Kashyap – My Free Spirit
ASA Music,Rs 150
Shibani Kashyap improves upon her past albums only because she assembles talented composers like Justin-Uday and Bappi Lahiri,with Santosh Nair pitching in for the average Khali bali. Among her own compositions,Alvida works,but the songs that linger for a while are Disco and Bakhuda. Kashyap should attempt softer tones – every song need not have that harsh tenor.
