Welcome back! We waited for this day…. Music review of movie Yeh Khula Aasman

When I was a kid, I used to worship Anand-Milind. And I can feel the same joy listening to a new album by them. I have tried to keep the review as honest as possible.

I could not get a better title than this one for this album. This album marks a comeback for Anand-Milind in bollywood and what a way to comeback. I have not heard such music in past many years. The lyrics are written by Ravi Chopra. He has done a remarkable job in writing the lyrics.

There are total 6 tracks in this album. I cannot rate anyone over the other. If I have to give ratings to any one of them above the others, I would better not rate anyone then.

The album starts with Aari Aari Aari Pawan, beautifully sung by Suresh Wadekar ji. This song should be put in the same league as the classics by Jaidev sahab. Probably this has to be the best song of Suresh Wadekar after Seene Mein Jalan from Gaban. Its a lullaby sung with extreme heart.

2nd and 3rd song of the album are the title songs of the movie. Kunal Ganjawala was right in accepting in a press conference that he has not sung these kind of songs before. The song takes a lot of pain out from you. They talk about the ups and downs of life a midst beautifully rendered piano and violin pieces. Five Star. This is a song that can be put in the same league as those by great Madan Mohan and R. D. Burman.

The 4th song of the album is Kya Tum Wahi Ho, sung by none other than Gayatri Ganjawala and Soham (In dino from Metro fame). To be very honest, I have not heard such a simple romantic number in past 7-8 years. The number is sweet with excellent lyrics. The use of recorder flute in the interlude is intelligent with the pieces adding to the overall theme of romance. “Kya Tum Khushi Ho” will definitely be one of the known numbers of 2012.

The 5th song is sung by none other than Raghubir Yadav himself. Its called “Ur Fur Kar”. Being originated from Madhya Pradesh, I found a lot of solace in listening to words like “kanni”, “pencha” etc. The song is a folk kinda song with some superb pieces of Harmonium (though done through VSTI plugins) and a fast paced dholak rhythm. Definitely a winner.

The last song of the album is a slow (but happy) version of Uri Fur Fur sung by Amey Date (Indian Idol fame). The song is the shortest in the movie with only close to 2 minutes, yet it still makes an impact on the listener. Thanks to excellent rhythms.

I wanted more from the album, not in terms of quality but in terms of quantity. क्या करें जी नहीं भरता अच्छे गाने सुनते हुए| Thanks a ton for Gitanjali Sinha, Anand-Milind and Ravi Chopra for giving such excellent music to us. I will remember it for years to come.
