Anu Malik's hip-hop score for this film was an instant hit with the crowds and was largely responsible for
making the film a hit. Be it Dekho Dekho Janam Hum... or breezy Neend Churayi Meri Kisne O
Sanam..., the songs just bring a feel of happiness. Even Mr Lova Lova... is also a very
popular number which makes the audience dance to its tune. Nothing serious or extraordinary but Anu Malik
does make you go crazy with his music in Ishq.
Jatin Lalit's music is good in this film though it has been inspired from their past tunes. Thanks also to Abhijeet who with his voice made the songs more listenable. It is all the way Abhijeet's album. It is the first time where he takes the complete credit for the songs to be hit. Whether it be Mein Koi Aisa Geet Gaaoon... or the up-tempo strains of Jaata Hai Kahan... or teasing beats of Suniye To Rukhiye To..., Abhijeet seems to be in fine form. Again it is Javed Akthar who has penned such excellent lyrics. The music was a treat to the ears.
For David Dhawan, good music is the one which lets your feet go tap-tap. Music given by Anu Malik, Judwaa has songs which really have no meaning. The lyrics are also penned by Anu Malik. But, surprisingly, because of the catchy tunes, all the songs were hit like Tan Tana Tan Tan Tara.., Oonchi Hai Building..., Tu Mere Dil mein Bas Ja.. and East or West India is the Best....
Nadeem Sharvan one more album in the top list of 1997. But this time the album is based on a family background. The most popular mumber is Mujhe Pyar Hua Allah Miya.... Because of Allah Miya, this song had created a big controversy. The other song which is emotionally charged is the title song Judaai Judaai.... The well choreographed songs with good music played an important role is pulling the crowds to the theatres.
After Ore Ore... of Ziddi Dilip Sen - Sameer Sen are once again back and this time with Yeh Khabar Chapwa Do Akbar Mein.... Shweta Shetty and Lalit Sen's unconventional vocal talents helped a lot in making this song as one of the most catchiest song in recent times. The other song sang by Remo Fernandez Aflatoon Aflatoon... also became very popular. With good choregoraphy the songs were not only pleasing to the eyes. After Ziddi and Itihaas, Aflatoon became the third hit album in this year for Dilip Sen - Sameer Sen.
Inspite of senseless lyrics, the songs of this film have been a rage with the masses. With this album, one more is added in the hit list of Anu Malik. The music is not very great but it is just the catchy tunes which have done their role. The most popular number of this album is Paidal Chal Raha Hoon.... Even other songs like Jab Tak Rahenga Samosa Mein Aloo... and Jumme Ke Jumme Ghar Bulaya Karo... have become popular.
The Rangeela team (Ram Gopal Verma and AR Rehman) again came up
with a good album. Daud is typical Rahman's style where the songs are
gradually liked by people. The best song of the album is O
Bhaware... sung by Asha Bhosale and Yesudas. The other popular
songs are Shaba Shaba Hone Lagi... and Zahreela Pyar...
sung by Asha Bhosale and Deena Chandradass. Again it is AR Rehman's
music and Asha Bhosale's rendition that gave the zing thing to the
This album's sales are the highest ever in the non-film category. The surprise of this album is Altaf Raja who has given mass-oriented quality to the the traditional quawwali. The hit numbers are Tum To Tehre pardesi..., Sono Hi Mohabba Ke.... and Awara Hawaa Ka Jhonka Hoon....
This was an excellent tribute to India's 50 years of Independence by AR Rehman. It was not just another album of Rehman. The lead track Maa Tujhe Salaam... is a well-timed, brillantly orchestrated, modern ode to the motherland. His high-pitched voice has given special effects to the song. Then is the original version of Vande Mataram and the final treat is Rehman's duet with Late Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan, Gurus of Peace... This album gave new dimensions to Indian pop. It is really a great effort by AR Rehman. Hats off to him.
Be it classical, pop or filmi, no one can beat Asha Bhosale. With Janam Samjha Karo she has proved
that she is way ahead of all those pop stars who come with new albums everday. Leslie Lewis' tunes added
with Asha's seductive voice make the album one of the best in the Indi-pop albums. Asha also walked away
with the Channel [V] and the MTV award for it. The title song has you hooked, and so do the other songs
like Oye Hoye Mudkar Dekta Ja... and Aillo Tum To Dillagi Mein... mainly because of Asha's
This album really is great because of eight soul-stirring numbers. With this album Alka Yagnik also joined
the league of pop album singers. Again this time the songs are penned by Hindi Maestro Javed Akthar. It
also gave boost to the composer Raju Singh who remained unnoticed for all this time. Lyrics of Saare
Sapnay Kahin Kho Gaye..., Zara Zara Si Baatein... and Saawli SI Soorat with the
melodious voice of Alka Yagnik touch your heart.
After Bolo Ta Ra Ra and Dardi Rab Rab, Daler Mehndi again gave a third hit with Ho Jayegi Balle Balle. This album is a combination of folk ballads and typical Daler style songs. Tere Mithde Ni Lagde Bol... has an interesting blend of Garba and Bhangra music. The title number really makes you dance. To make the album a hit, composer Jawahar Wattar is also at his best.
