With virtually no advertising for the low-key film of Kuch Khatti Kuch Meethi, one would think that with such a long gap of a Kajol film, the opposite would be true. Either the idea is to surprise everyone with a good film when no one has expectations to begin with, or its a mistake film every actor/actress has, such as Hote Hote Pyar Ho Gaya for Kajs. Either way, with a music director like copycat errr "inspirational" Anu Malik and a low-profile movie like KKKM, expectations, are, well, low. 

Tumko Sirf Tumko is well-sung by Kumar Sanu and Alka Yagnik, but the direct copy off the Sholay music discounts the song greatly. Though Sanu is competent, other singers could have done greater justice to the song. The music is soothing and gentle, having the potential to make the Top 10 list. The two versions, the duet and the Sanu solo, are both good, though I prefer the former. The Sholay lift is too much for me to digest, though, so I have to give due credit and discount it out of respect for the original Sholay crew, hence, the song is good, but passable as a copy errr "inspiration". Good lift

I clump the next few songs together as they all fall under the "Good but impactless" songs, with potential change upon the filmīs release. Neend Ude Rahi Hai (Sanu, Yagnik) is a song that comes and goes without impact, a listen while the movie still has to release and a watch in the theater.
Samne Baith Kar is a cute and catchy song, with lifts from Sarfaroshīs Is Deewane Ladke Ko (what a surprise).
Sunidhi Chauhanīs Ab Nahi To Kabhi lacks the freshness that Farzīs Jhanak Jhanak Baaje had. Catchy as it may start out, the semi-rap sounds ridiculous and loses the force that she had in Mehboob Mere.... Blah.
Khud Bhi Nachungi is a stupid song and a waste of Alka Yagnikīs talent. The lyrics make a good one time listen, some of it is funny and most of it is plain ridiculous. Next!
Anuradha Sriram picks up Bandh Kamre Mein with a more traditional beat, though these are the types of songs whose lyrics I would rather not listen to because it wastes the catchy (yet highly unoriginal) beat. Fastforward 
Kuch Kuch Khatti Kuch Kuch Meethi rounds up the disastrous album, the title song not fairing much better than the rest of the album. The music is excessively loud and brash and the lyrics, sung without regard by Alka Yagnik (the twins have one singer... they are right about being the same!), are cheesy. Fit for the movie, and thatīs about it...Fastforward!

The album offers nothing fresh or original...Maybe, maybe worth a tape...but be prepared to do a lot of fastforwarding.
