Jingle all the way!
In the era of star sons, the newest kid to hit tinsel town is none other than 'Jumping Jack' Jeetendra’s son Tusshar Kapoor. Mujhe Kucch Kehna Hai marks his lavish debut -- lavish, chiefly because it is produced by Vashu ‘Midas’ Bhagnani, directed by Satish Kaushik and co-stars the natural scene stealer Kareena Kapoor.
Grand music for a grand debut? Not really!
Against the trend of soundtracks of movies introducing newcomers having a fresh feel to them, MKKH offers nothing novel.
Anu Malik composes some regular fare to Sameer's lyrics, concocted with the usual dils, jigars, piyas and jiyas.
The first track is the peppy, foot-tapping Maine koyi jadoo. Spiced with funky beats and the saucy vocals of Babul Supriyo, Preeti and Pinky (of Piya piya from Har Dil Jo Pyaar Karega fame), this one is poised to be a sure hit at the countdown charts.
Jabse Dekha hai has Babul Supriyo and Alka Yagnik proclaiming their love for each other. A mediocre track with an impressive chorus. Another version, which features Yagnik alone, sounds much better than the duet.
Catch King of pop, Sonu Nigam in superb form with Rabba mera rabba. His brilliant rendition infused with his trademark energy makes this racy, punch-packed track with awesome acoustics worth its while.
Surprisingly the title song fails to make any impression at all. Even the talented K.K attempts fail to lift this highly insipid number from the ordinary.
Remember Anuradha Sriram sensually crooning Tarra ra from Gharwali Baharwali? Well, she's back, oozing oomph through her husky voice in Duppata. A catchy track jammed with innuendoes.
K.K's Pyar re fits in the same mould as Lucky Ali's Ek pal ka jeena (Kaho Naa…Pyaar Hai). Whether or not it will recreate the same magic for Tusshar remains to be seen.
Looks like the makers weren't too happy with the original title song, therefore Guncha Hai Gul Hai. A modified title song from Sonu Nigam. Ho-hum!
A big-budgeted film like this certainly deserved a better deal.
