Considering the stupendous success behind Salman Khanchr('8217')s earlier hit this year, chr('8220')Mujhse Shaadi Karogichr('8221') is it a wonder why Bubby Kent renamed chr('8220')Dil Churake Chal Diyechr('8221'), a slightly delayed film, to chr('8220')Shaadi Kharke Phas Gaya Yaarchr('8221')? Well, that may not have been his reasoning, but even David Dhawan is sealing the fact that chr('8220')shaadichr('8221') will be part of his next filmchr('8217')s title. On the other hand, what is missing in this shaadi filled titled and film, is the catchy hit kind of music that was in

Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. There was nothing unique there, there is nothing unique here, but the music here by Sajid-Wajid is a little less catchy than Mujhse Shaadi Karogi which puts the film in a different league all together.

The soundtrack opens up with the chr('8220')Deewane Dil Ko Jaane Dochr('8221'). Alka Yagnik and Sonu Nigam are apt and the beat is surely been there heard thatchr('8212')many a times. Lyrics (Shabbir Ahmed) are average, which is odd considering it is a new lyricist, but the song is listenable in its own passable way.

Sajid-Wajid have often composed songs like this previously making this one stand out less, particularly for them.

Romance is still the forte in chr('8220')Taaron Ko Mohabbatchr('8221'), but this one is a bit more catchier than the soundtrack opener. A pleasant chorus compliments the song along with irresistible flute interludes. Daboo Malik who has often been either a hit or miss is in good form here and is complimented with good lyrics by Jalees Sherwani and Rashid. The recurring beat is very catchy and Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik are nice in their renditions. Of the few, this song is worthy of a few listens and definitely the best of the album.

By the time our third song rolls out, chr('8220')Dil Yeh Bahaltachr('8221'), one gets the feel that the entire soundtrack is going to focus strictly on romance. Yes, that sounds boring, and so does the song! Here is one Sunidhi Chauhan-Sonu Nigam that doesnchr('8217')t hit the right spots. Salim Bijnori has penned an overtly regular song and Daboo Malikchr('8217')s jazzy beats do very little to make the song keep onechr('8217')s attention.

Sajid-Wajid proved in Chori Chori that they could compose songs with soul, meaning and make them appealing all the same. In the next track, chr('8220')Kuch Bhi Nahin Thachr('8221') they have teamed up Alka Yagnik with

Hariharan after what seems likes eons and has once again came up with a pleasantly surprising song. Soft and soothing itchr('8217')s the kind that a listener of any kind of music can enjoy, without going overboard with their composition. The lyrics, by Jalees Sherwani, on the other hand are typical.

The soundtrack has two versions of the title track (and it isnchr('8217')t even on T-Series, but more on that later), chr('8220')Shaadi Karkechr('8221') and chr('8220')Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaarchr('8221'). Like the titles insinuate, the first version is a shorter version while the second finishes it off and takes it time to do so. The song culminates the theme of the film well and is pretty situational. Ironically, the same composer does not compose both songs, and that is very discernable after listening to it. chr('8220')Shaadi Karkechr('8221') is a purely situational track sung by Abhijeet and composed by P. Sameer with lyrics by

Manohar Iyer. The second version is written by Jalees Sherwani and composed by Sajid-Wajid and has Sunidhi and Sonu teaming up again. I know Ichr('8217')m not the only one hearing the similarity with a few of the tracks, particularly the title one, from Mujhse Shaadi Karogi. But hey, it may just be the word chr('8220')shaadichr('8221').

For your last dose of romance, Salim Bijnori drags the pens and composing the boring chr('8220')Tujhe Se Pyar Haichr('8221'). Ichr('8217')m getting tired of hearing chr('8220')aetbaarchr('8221') in almost every song these days, particularly because it seems like it is used so much because it rhymes with pyaar. Sunidhi is in high pitch mode. In other words, not so pleasant. The song is a bomb. That may be harsh but in a soundtrack of typical romance numbers, one that is below average can only be described as such.

It is odd that Tips would release this soundtrack, considering their lagging record lately and that the soundtrack is laced with strict romance songs (T-Series anyone?) and not a chartbuster anywhere. Shilpa Shetty and Salman Khan had much better tunes for their earlier releases, chr('8220')Garvchr('8221') and chr('8220')Phir Milengechr('8221'). I for one still canchr('8217')t stop listening to chr('8220')Hum Tumko Nigahon Meinchr('8221') from

Garv, despite it being such a typical song. For chr('8216')Shaadi Karke Phas Gaya Yaarchr('8217'), chr('8220')Taaron Ka Mohabbatchr('8221') may be that chr('8216')itchr('8217') song that drives the soundtrack to some form of popularity, but there isnchr('8217')t much after that, in fact very little.
