Andaaz features with a very impressive and noticeable star cast, Akshay Kumar with two internationally recognized beauty queens making their debut with this movie, which include Priyanka Chopra (Ex-Miss World) and Lara Dutta (Ex-Miss Universe) respectively whereas Akshay plays a lead role opposite both of these beauties. His role is considered to be fully action packed but here until now, what trailer shows, it is a love triangle and romantic movie. If so, then it would be a new and nice change in his career. The last movie of Akshay ‘Talash’ couldn’t make a big boost at the box office and so the whole crew including him is focusing on this glamorous venture to hit the jackpot!
The duo of Nadeem-Sharavan, which is a well-known pair, has given one of their best compositions once again, while Sameer has written the lyrics for the album. The album is released by Shri Krishna International Audio, a home music company of Suneel Darshan. It has total 8 tracks to entertain the ears of listeners. Some of the tracks are real good enough to bag the awards and they might win some!
1- Kisi Se Tum Pyar Karo (Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik)
The soundtrack welcomes the listeners with Kisi Se Tum Pyar Karo. The duo of Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik delivers the number romantically well in a perfect rhythmical style, which automatically enters into the ears. A romantic and melodious track all the way. The music is much appealing and catchy. Nadeem-Sharvan arrange the tunes in a manner, which is liked by all and sundry. The creativity is pretty obvious in the work. Lyrics by Sameer win the hearts.
2- Kitna Pagal Dil Hai (Kumar Sanu)
Kumar Sanu polishes up his voice by delivering Kitna Pagal Dil Hai, a romantic and melodious number all the way. The lyrics by Sameer completely signify the mood of the song accurately. Sameer seems in his excellent form. Sanu renders the song perfectly well in an impeccable style. The composers duo Nadeem-Sharvan decorates the tunes beautifully well.
3- Kitna Pagal Dil Hai (Alka Yagnik)
Alka Yagnik pockets the same number, Kitna Pagal Dil Hai. She delivers it well but her vocals do not register a good impact if we compare them to Kumar’s vocals. Anyway the track is passable.
4- Allah Kare Dil Na Lage Kisise (Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik)
Allah Kare Dil Na Lage Kisise wakes up having versatile Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik doing the honors. Together they both sing the song in their silken voice. The number hits the listeners’ emotions to the direction where they arrive in the state of ecstasy. Sameer getting drenched in a beautiful feeling pens fantastic lyrics. Music is stupendous. Nadeem-Sharvan being high profile composers, score a lucrative piece of music here, which is very ear-friendly and leaves a good impression on the listeners.
5- Rabba Ishq Naa Hove (Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Sapna Mukherjee and Kailash)
A crew of vocalists comes next to prove their mettle in singing by rendering Rabba Ishq Naa Hove. Kumar Sanu, Alka Yagnik, Sapna Mukherjee and a new find Kailash team up and deliver it well. A qawwali type song having average lyrics by Sameer. Music is accurate. The pair (Nadeem-Sharvan) fulfills their routine duty of presenting a qawwali type of number in every album of them. Overall an ok track.
6- Aaj Kehna (Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik)
Udit Narayan teams up with Alka Yagnik to deliver Aaj Kehna in their deep voices. A romantic number all the way. Both the singers knowing their duty do well with their respective jobs. Sameer excels in lyrics a bit. Whereas music by Nadeem-Sharvan is average. The song might stay with the listeners for a specific period of time.
7- Aayega Maza Ab Barsat Ka (Babul Supriyo and Alka Yagnik)
Aayega Maza Ab Barsat Ka yawns and brings the listeners Babul Supriyo and Alka Yagnik as vocalists of this track. The duo of Babul and Alka attracts with their vocals but the lyrics and music cannot accompany them. Finally the song becomes a so so number.
8- Shala La Baby (Shaan and Alka Yagnik)
Shaan pairs up with Alka Yagnik to deliver Shala La Baby, an item number all the way. The song has been shinning pretty well on all satellite channels these days. The crystal clear renditions of the singers lift the song in an accurate style. The number when played automatically produces thrill in the bodies. Energetically composed by Nadeem-Sharvan, the number has also good lyrics by Sameer. An electric number to lock the album. The track might also take a good position on the charts as it has a solid potential to be the one amongst the good numbers.
On the whole, the soundtrack of Andaaz showcases the marvelous and creative skills of the composers duo, Nadeem-Sharvan. No doubt, some of the tracks will bag awards in future. The album has an up market music. The whole content of the soundtrack is memorable and a gorgeous gift for the people who have an ear for rhythmical music.
