Thoda Pyaar Thoda Magic: Music Review

kabhi socha hai kya..
kabhi socha hai kya, barish kyun bhaaye
kyun geet bewajah, hoton pe aaye
kyun achchi lage, talwon mein lehren
kyun bhatke kadam, ek pal na thehren...

Shankar Mahadevan is getting to sing the best lyrics somehow. And it's all coming out of Prasoon Joshi's pen for quite some time. After Aamir Khan's Taare Zameen Par, Kunal kohli's Saif-Rani starrer Thoda Pyaar Thoda magic seems to be yet another treat from the composer trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy and the first song 'Pyaar ke liye' (starting lyrics above) seems to be a great start for the album.

The second song, Nihaal ho gayi has already started showing on the music channels and is getting the great response it deserved. And though the promo shows just two lines, rest of the song has a few good lines. The music has a feel of Jhoom barabar Jhoom title song.

The third song, bulbula, starts in an altogether new manner as there is a chorus sort of cursing in a friendly manner after which Sunidhi renders some lyrics in an I'm-the-best mood. At 3 minutes and 20 seconds, the song is pretty small and not bad.

At number four comes something interesting. First thing is the title, 'Lazy Lamhe' and the second is the voice of Anusha Mani, listening to which one can wonder where she was until now. The song is a slow number with a slight lounge feeling attached to it.

Track five, the last original song in the album, 'Beetey Kal Se' comes in two female voices, Shreya Goshal and Sneha Suresh. The song doesn't have much at the music front but the lyrics are quite positive and are likeable. In fact, the dialogs in the mid-song raise questions of social importance too.

Number six is a remix of 'Nihaal Ho Gayi' by DJ Aqeel. The remix is good as the song is already a good Punjabi-style dance number.

The final track is a well deserved remix of Lazy Lamhe. I mean, a remix that looks like a real remix, like those in Sanjay Gupta movies. The singer, composer and song prove good yet again in the hands of DJ Aqeel and thus the album ends with a good note and a mood to play it again.

Final Verdict: A must buy if you like typical Yash Raj's music which is generally the case with most.
