I sincerely doubt that Kismat is going to be a musical of sorts or anything more than another recluse action entertainer where the female heroine steps into dance and the male hero attempts to battle off the evil obstacles in their presence. Kismat´s music composed by Anand Raj Anand seems like an in between of

Kaante and Bichhoo but does not amount to anything much comparable to either. For music composer Anand Raj Anand there are a few tracks that show that he is trying to compose differently, more along the lines of Kaante, but the lasting impression is nill and as expected nothing of musical importance. For the few upbeat dance tracks there are more than a few unappreciable tracks making Kismat passable to say the least.

Anand Raj Anand is one of the composers who composes very well for singer Sunidhi Chauhan. Their upbeat peppy songs go back to tunes like "Khem Che" (Jis Desh Main Ganga Rehte Hain) and the more recent "Ishq Samundar" (Kaante). The two songs that open the soundtrack are more or less incarnations of the above and work well to catch the listeners attention or at the very least have someone watch a few dance steps. "Mahi Mahi" is a dance number that will get your feet tapping. A catchy beat, chorus and Sunidhi help its lifeline a little.

Sounding a little like "Tote Tote" and "Jeevan Mein" from Bichhoo, "Sajna Mile Sajna" is similar to Mahi Mahi and is also sung by Sunidhi. Again, nothing notable but a pacy beat and at very best regular music.

To solemnize the mood invoked in the first two songs, the pace quickly changes to the slower and obligatory depressing slow punjabi number "Dil Tere Deewangi Main" sung by Richa Sharma and composer

Anand Raj Anand himself. I think it is needless to say that there is little novelty left in Richa shrieking agony every so often in these styled songs, especially when they are laced with ever so typical beats and music overall.

"Chitto Dudh Kudi" sounds like a rehash or possible cash in on the many Shaan-Himesh Reshammiya numbers that have been released lately like "Boys Are Best", "Mirchi" or "Nikamma". The beat is practically the same and the lyrics in this one are boring, not that lyricist Dev Kohli has outdone himself otherwise.

Gayatri Iyer
, however, is pleasurable in what is otherwise just another boy-girl teaser song.

Since Kaante´s soundtrack did well, Anand Raj Anand must think that tapori numbers are a most. That is, at least, what´s indicated in this soundtrack with the insipid situational tracks "Hum Hain Mast Maula" and "Bicchi Padi Hai". How boring it is to hear the talented Abhijeet wasted along with Alka Yagnik on this horrible track. It is just awkward to listen to these tunes that stand out as situational and unneeded on a soundtrack with other songs that barely surpass it. Sanjay Dutt styled dialogue fills up most of the former song while the latter, Anand Raj Anand attempts to make listen able and fails in both the singing and composing department. Funny enough, this is not the first time.

As part of the mandatory signing with T-Series one supposes, instrumentals of a number of songs fill the soundtrack. "Mahi Mahi", "Sajna Mile Sajna" and "Dil Tera Deewangi" end off the soundtrack. Not that we´re running to the store for these songs, really.

To sum it up, like his brother, music is the least thing on can really look forward to when watching Bobby Deol´s films. If the past wasn´t an indication, the music for Kismat surely is.
