Aisha

The title track hooks you from the word go. Trivedi uses a melange of instruments, especially the trumpet, to create a super-addictive tune – Aisha is frothy, stylish and fun. He is also terrific as the main lead in this number and is ably supported by Nakash Aziz and Ash King. The song has an irresistible charm to it and does a fantastic job eulogising the protagonist of the film, Aisha.

Tochi Raina (last heard in the male version of Iktara in Wake Up Sid) sings Gal mitthi mitthi with total Punjabi panache! Trivedi innovatively layers his sounds which includes the shehnaai to create a ‘Club meets Bhangra’ dance track, which has sure-fire hit written all over it. The number has also been remixed by DJ Lloyd and Discreet as Gal mitthi mitthi  – The Bombay bounce dhol mix which seems more like a last-minute inclusion and is not a patch on the original song.

Sham is pure magic! Though Akhtar’s words are beautifully simple, it’s the singing that draws your attention. Nikhil D’Souza and Amit Trivedi, both unconventional voices, are exceptional in their rendition. Some nifty guitar play and a catchy chorus (backing vocals: Neuman Pinto) make this soft ballad a joy to listen to.

Behke behke is a complete contrast, a foot-tapping number that is wildly infectious. Trivedi makes brilliant use of Spanish elements and the accordion to make this track an immediate winner. Anuskha Manchanda sparkles in her rendition – the industry could definitely use more of this sprightly talent – and keeping her superb company are Samrat Kaushal and Raman Mahadevan.

Lehrein drowns you in sweet melancholy. Anusha Mani (of Lazy lamhe fame) is flawless in her rendition of this heartbreak song. Trivedi uses the violin brilliantly to make this a haunting number. For once, the remix version, Lehrein remix – the Bombay bounce lounge mix is subdued, enhancing the appeal of the original. By the way (Anuskha Manchanda, Neuman Pinto), perhaps the weakest composition in this album is a chic party rockish song that’s fun largely due to Manchanda’s spunky vocals.

With Mithoon (Lamhaa) and Amit Trivedi (Udaan, Aisha), you can be sure the future of Hindi film music rests in good hands.

Verdict: Rocking! Must Buy
