Things take a slight dip with Aas Paas Khuda, here the duo’s arrangement not proving enough to mitigate the deja vu-ishness. Rahat Fateh Ali handles the vocals, producing the usual results. The unplugged version is an improvement, Shruti Pathak along with Rahat provide some interesting segments with their vocal brilliance, but the base tune becomes this one’s undoing as well. The composers bounce back with Tumse Hi Tumse though, Shekhar and Caralisa Monteiro crooning to a breezy orchestration. The bounce-back continues in its upward direction with an even better Tujhe Bhula Diya, Shruti Pathak giving an excellent semi-classical start which is then carried forward by Mohit Chauhan to create another wonderfully packaged melody punctuated by occasional qawwali segments rendered by Shekhar. The remix, though decently done, is a pale shadow of the original. Vishal returns with Shilpa Rao to deliver the final track of the album, I Feel Good, which despite its SEL-esque youthfulness in arrangement, justifies its title with an overall feel good-ness.
A quintessential Vishal-Shekhar album – youthful, entertaining, and very Vishal-Shekhar-esque.. Five wonderful tunes out of the seven original tracks.. Anjaana Anjaani is an excellent follow-up to the duo’s work in I Hate Luv Storys. Music Rating: 8.5/10
Recommended Tracks: Tujhe Bhula Diya, Hairat Hai, Anjana Anjani (Shilpa-Vishal version)
