After Shakti, another flick from the house of Boney Kapoor is about to be released – Khushi. Remake of a Tamil movie by the same name, it is directed by the same director – S.J.Suryah and stars Fardeen Khan and Kareena Kapoor (in the title role). Music is by Anu Malik and Sameer writes the lyrics.
‘Aaja Piya’ has Sunidhi Chauhan in her ‘nasheela’ best and has sung it on a different pitch altogether which has not been witnessed before from her. A little bit of shade of ‘Piya Piya’ from Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega here and there but still it is the funky beats and Sunidhi’s voice that cause a very good impact. The number should be one of those crowd puller tracks and the producers should hold this one till the release of the movie for the maximum results. Sunidhi also renders another track ‘Khushi Aayee Re Aayee Re’ but since it is a situational song so the impact gets diluted. An OK number, it is about how this girl called Khushi can bring happiness in the life of people around her and HOLD ON, also turn ‘paani’ into ‘sharara’. (as the lyrics go !!!) A number about I-AM-THE-HAPPIEST-AND-U-TOO-BE-HAPPY, it mainly describes about the essence of the title of the movie – Khushi.
Hema Sardesai is destined to reach the top of the charts with ‘Hai Re Hai Re’. The number has caught fancy of many a moviegoers and going by the rate at which it’s popularity is rising, it should be match up to the success of another Kareena number – ‘Maine Koyi Jaadu Nahi Kiya’ from Mujhe Kuch Kehna Hai. For a change, KK is overshadowed in a number, primarily due to the arrangement of the song where Hema holds prominence. Choreography by Prabhu Deva is eye catching and there is no denying the fact that it is one of the most innovatively choreographed number for a long time. Makeup done on both the lead players, Fardeen Khan and Kareena are in a humorous vein and the number may well be the USP of Khushi.
