Someone obviously got their signals crossed when planning the music for Praan Jaye Par Shaan Na Jaye. Nothing equates with the horribly insipid tunes. For one, a women oriented film with over five mainstream female leads has a soundtrack where there are predominantly male singers (barring two songs, all of the others are sung by male singers and in those two the female singer is far from dominating the track). Secondly, for a hard hitting subject the songs are dosed with humor and pointlessness lending little to no interest to the story. Finally, none of the songs are listenable and sadly, this is far beyond the un-listenable which encompasses songs that are boring, or regular. These songs are simply ridiculous which in themselves couldnÂ´t help a film which featured super stars, let alone a film with no real hero.
"Chali Humko" is barely two minutes in length. Sung by Vinod Rathod, Nitin Raikwar and the sole female singer on the soundtrack Tulsi Maidasani, one wonders why it is even that long. Pointless concoction of a mixture of boring sounds presenting useless lyrics effortlessly.
"Aye Aye Ya" and "Loan De" have titles enough to distract the listener. And in each, Vinod Rathod is horribly inaudible. Music composer Daboo Malik again walks the path of brother Anu and like brother couldnÂ´t sing if his life depends on it. Vinod has for whatever reason become the first choice for these tapori numbers, and its sad because he can do better. Situational tracks couldnÂ´t get more insipid. Boy has Daboo Malik damaged his reputation! His music for "Aye Aye Ya" is simply bad as are the lyrics by Praveen Bhardwaj. The same and worst can be said for Nitin Raikwar who has written and composed
In the midst of these horrible tunes a title like "Hum Tere Sanam" actually has us hoping it is a love song, possibly even listenable at that. Noting that Vinod Rathod sings it already tells us we should forget about, and you should.
Perhaps it is because Nitin Raikwar has composed the music, and written the lyrics again. The flute dominates but the music is boring. Raikwar has sometimes given us lyrical treasures, as was the case in say Pyaar Tune Kya Kiya. As of late it has been strictly tapori for him and his latest compositions have been nothing different either. Quite while your ahead, please, and oh yeah, give credit to the lifeless female vocals who were not credited on the album cover.
Sonu Nigam is the only household name on the album, again providing some hope for decent music. Again, a hope lost. Sonu Nigam in "Shaadi Ki Pehli Baat" has again been drawn down to the low life of singing boring hero songs referring to a manÂ´s wedding dreams, etc. Not that is a poor thing, itÂ´s just one thing when youÂ´re asked to do so with inane lyrics by Praveen Bhardwaj and music by Daboo Malik which doesnÂ´t try to emote feelings but bore you with them.
At some points the music for the songs, especially by Nitin Raikwar sound local. ItÂ´s as if your neighborhood band has composed it. Given that the film has to do with a forty nine family village of wide variety trying to keep their
chawls, perhaps that was the feel they intended. What they forgot was to actually make the music likeable or listenable. Maybe music doesnÂ´t play a major role in the film (one hopes), but maybe they shouldnÂ´t have had these horrible songs made as well. A word, though the soundtrack cover is laced with the beauty of its female leads, it is the only good thing about the soundtrack.
