Mohabbat Aapse (Aa Dekhen Zara)

Aakriti Kakkar has not been very famous for singing typical, slow, soft, romantic songs. But after listening to Mohabbat Aapse of Aa dekhen zara, I feel there might be a change of opinions, that is, if the song gets popular.

In Aa Dekhen Zara, the next flick of Neil Nitin Mukesh, where he has also sung the title song, Aakriti Kakkar gets what is probably the best song of the album, a song that is slow, soft, romantic, that one would have thought of giving to Alka Yagnik or Shreya Ghoshal, but Aakriti Kakkar, the singer of generally fast and furious type of songs and a favorite of Himesh Reshammiya, gets this one, and sings the song with the same beauty with which Shreya or Alka might have sung. Maybe even better.

The song, Mohabbat aapse, gives a feel of older times, that is the '90s, but a setting of the 2000s is enough to tell that the song actually belong to this century even with a composition simulating those of the '90s. In fact the song reminds me of Akele Tanha of Darling, a song with a '90s touch I'd quite liked.

Besides being good, Mohabbat Aapse is the only typical new song of the album Aa Dekhen Zara, in which one song is derived from the original Aa Dekhen Zara, the other - Let's rock the party - is almost a copy of Let's party from God Tussi Great Ho, and Paisa hai Power is the 'different' song of the album, a good number, though the composer couldn't find much 'different' in the 'different' song.

Coming back, Mohabbat Aapse is a song based on good music and beautiful, soft singing. The lyrics are all sweet-syrupy and there is not a lot to be expected on that front. But overall, the song is likeable and those fans of the '90s songs would probably love the song. Try it, and I hope you wouldn't be disappointed.
