So kites is finally here!!!!!!!!! After being ready for release for what seems like ages, the Roshans have finally given the green signal for its release. But frankly, I was neither impressed by its first trailer nor by the promos which followed it, so I kind of lost interest in it till I saw the trailers of its two songs, thanks to @dunkdaft’s blog. These two songs made me excited for rest of the soundtrack which is something unusual because I “HATED” Krissh’s soundtrack and thought that Rajesh Roshan had completely lost it. Seriously Pyar Ki Ek Kahani still makes me highly irritated. Coming back to Kites, when I first heard its soundtrack I was amazed, as Rajesh Roshan had made something really new and different.
The soundtrack kicks up with Zindagi Do Pal Ki which sounds like a typical Rajesh Roshan song. The song has K.K. behind the mike crooning to some sparkling lyrics by Nasir Faraaz. The song sounds perfect for a long drive with someone really special. This is one song you’ll love to keep on loop.
K.K. comes again for Dil Kyu Ye Mera, a love ballad with some rock elements. The song starts with a flute and strings and slowly increases the tempo. The song makes a fairy tale kind of world around you in which you’ll want to get lost.
Next is Tum Bhi Ho Wohi. Now this one is something really different in terms of composition. It starts with R&B but then suddenly changes to something pulsating, kind of like the music you find in chase sequences. Vishal Dadlani and Suraj Jaggan live up to their status of Rock star and kick some serious arse with their singing. The song might not catch on you instantly but it will grow on you slowly.
When I read that Hrithik is singing Kites in The Sky for the movie I thought it would be something like what Aamir, Shahrukh and Sanjay Dutt had done in some of their songs i.e. singing one or two lines or something tapori style, so I was pleasantly surprised when I heard this track. He is not bad at all, in fact he sounds good, but I don’t think he should do it often. Suzanne D’Mello with her Spanish parts is the highlight of the song. With minimalist arrangement the song is a rather good relaxing track.
How can Hrithik have a movie with no track to dance to. Fire is basically an instrumental track with some words thrown in, in the end. The song starts with slow techno beats and slowly reaches to its peak. This song’s picturisation will definitely put the screens on fire. Expect sparks to fly around.
All in all the Roshans have made good album which is a bit Hatke from their usual outings, which is good. But it still hasn’t made me any more excited for the movie.
My Verdict: A really enjoyable soundtrack
Pick of the lot: Zindagi Do Pal, Dil Kyu Ye Mera, and Tum Bhi Ho Wohi
