Song by Song: Chhayi Madhoshiyaan (Jumbo)

Ram Sampath is back. With animation flick Jumbo, he's again there and you realize it as soon as you listen to Chhayi Madhoshiyaan. Sung by Sonu Nigam and Ram's wife Sona, Chhayi Madhoshiyaan instantly reminds one of Waada Raha and Yoonhi hum tumse pyaar karte rahe, the two melodies from Khakee, from the very initial music.

Sonu Nigam is once again in his old soft romantic mood as he sings 'Chhayi Madhoshiyaan, dil dhadakne laga hai, pyaar ka silsila ye kahan le chala hai, lagti hai pyaari, kyon bekarari, jaanun na'. As far as Sona is concerned, soft romantic is not the best thing she does as her voice is more suited to ballads and high pitched songs, still she sounds fine and makes me wonder again why she doesn't sing more.

Ram Sampath has once again used flute to start the song. In fact the entire music of the song somewhat gives the feeling of Waada Raha but the song still sounds quite good and fresh. Lyrics of Israr Ansari are usual. In the end, composer has even tried a higher pitch for vocals and music.

Overall, the song is a good soft romantic number that one might like. No guarantee though.
