Govinda aala re!
Music director Uttam Singh has not quite been able to recapture the magic of the tunes he scored in Dil To Pagal Hai.
Witness Dushman, Hum Tum Pe Marte Hai and Farz.
Now he is back with the Govinda-Rani Mukherji starrer Pyaar Diwana Hota Hai. Incidentally, the film happens to be directed by Govinda's elder brother Kirti Kumar (Hatya).
The soundtrack consists of seven songs and one instrumental piece.
The title track, although not a musical masterpiece, grows on you after a while. Don't be surprised if, towards the end of the song, you're caught tapping your foot and humming along.
Yeh kya jadu is another song that may make it to the countdown. What makes this song worthwhile is singer Udit Narayan's bubbling enthusiasm. Deewane dil by Hariharan and Preeti Uttam is mediocre. Kya Dilli kya Jalandhar by Sonu Nigam and Preeti Uttam again is so-so.
This is the first time Uttam Singh has deviated from his favourite Lata Mangeshkar to his own daughter Preeti Uttam. Preeti, on her part, shows great promise. If only she had better numbers.
Jaspinder Narula's Pyaar achha hota hai shows sparks initially, but becomes monotonous soon enough. What's more, it features twice in the album.
Teri aankhen bolti hai has Alka Yagnik teaching Vinod Rathod a lesson or two on the art of singing. On Vinod's part, he is content doing a poor take on Kishore Kumar.
So far, so bad. The music is common fare with an odd saving grace here and there.
Wrapping up the album is the soft and soothing theme music of Pyaar Diwana Hota Hai. It's this instrumental piece that is clearly the winner of the album.
If you want breezy, timepass music, this album is for you.
