Tuesday, December 6, 2005 • Hindi Comments

Three decades back came Randhir Kapoor - Jaya Bhaduri starrer 'Jawani Diwani' that had number of popular songs composed by R.D. Burman. Circa 2005 and times have changed with movies becoming much bolder and forthcoming and 'Jawani Diwani - A Youthful Ride' just takes the trend further. Starcast of the movie comprises of hot'n'happening Emraan Hashmi promising to lock lips with sexy Celina Jaitley in this fun movie that has Hrishita Bhatt as his other female interest. Sajid Wajid are at the helm of composing music while Shabbir Ahmed writes.

1) Jawani Deewani [Singer: Bobby Moon, music: Clinton Cerejo]

Want to have a song for one rocking party at home? Then play on Jawani Diwani and hit on the title song. A pop number that has a very British-Indian pop fusion feel to it, this Clinton Cerejo composed song is sure to hit big time due to its innovative musical arrangements. Bobby Moon [not to be confused with Babu Mann] is a singer to watch out for when it comes to youthful campus songs as he captures the essence of the title song quite well and sings in a way that suits Emraan Hashmi's personality to the T. A groovy number with just the right pace that gets your feet moving gradually, it is of the kind that could be enjoyed on beach as much as in your speedy car ride!

2) Dil Deewana [Sonu Nigam, Sowmya Raoh, Hamza Farooqui]

After a song that had an obvious British pop feel to it comes a song that is based on Arabian music. The track begins with Hamza Farooqui's Arabian rendition that reminds of 'Kaho Na Kaho' from Murder. He does a wonderful job to set the tone for the song that is soon taken over by Sonu Nigam. The transition is seamless without diluting the effect created by Hamza as Sonu completely gets involved in the melody of this love song. Hamza'a rendition too continues along with the entire song to make it look out rightly exquisite while Sowmya Raoh has little to do in the number that is prominently dominated by male vocals. The number combined with good cinematography and locations should lead to a good audio-visual appeal.

3) Sini Ne Sini Ne (Orginal and remix) [Singer: Suhaas, music: Siddarth, Suhaas, lyrics: Kumaar]

After two varied numbers, fun continues with 'Sini Ne' that rocks from the word GO. A Hinglish number written by Kumaar and composed by Sidharth and Suhaas, it has the latter getting completely involved with the proceedings while singing the track. Club feel is prominent throughout its remix version while the original [which is a slower version] just gets the passion in full steam all around you. There is a unique way that the slower version has been presented with a 'breaking' feel imparted to the vocals in the beginning. A foot tapping number with a great rhythm, it could be one of the TOP MOST hits before the year ends if publicized aggressively.

4) Tere Ishq Mein [Rahul Saxena, Shadaab Faridi and Arif Shaikh]

One of the Indian Idol Top-10 finalists, Rahul Saxena, pairs up with Shadaab Faridi and Arif Shaikh to come up with 'Tere Ishq Mein', a routine sufi-western number about falling in love. Yes, it is different yet again from the rest of the tracks that had come up prior to it and provides variety to the album. But still, it breaks th  party mood that had been created by the songs before it and at best is situational. This is a kind of song that looks good as a part of narrative but is hardly of the kind that people play at home in a 'repeat' mode!

5) Jiska Mujhe Intezaar [Kay Kay, Suzanne D'Mello]

An arrangement that reminds of Biddu style of music goes along with 'Jiska Mujhe Intezar Hai' that has a western feel to it throughout but in essence is a song about a man's cry of separation from his loved one. After 'Tere Ishq Mein', this is second song in succ
