Despite the fact that Kuch Dil Ne Kaha, the last T-Series starrer featuring Rakesh Bapat, is still waiting in the pits for a release, here is another film featuring the male star from the now forgotten Tum Bin. Things are not much different music wise between

Kuch Dil Ne Kaha and the oddly titled Tumse Milke…Wrong Number, barring the fact that it is composed by Daboo Malik (vs. Nikhil Vinay in Kuch Dil Ne Kaha). T-Series seems to be releasing every soundtrack these days, (guess they don’t call them Super Cassettes Industries for nothing?) Featuring Richa Pallod (Kuch Tum Kuch Hum Kahein) as the female lead, there is not much to say about the music for

Tumse Milke... but that you know whose composing it and what label it’s on the minute you listen to it.

Kumar Sanu makes another rare appearance in the obligate romantic opener, “Jab Tak Tum, Samne Rahoge”. As catchy as it is, it is still interluded with the typical T-Series stuff however still likable in its own way. Kumar and Anuradha Paudwal do well in their one in a million duet together. It’s nice to see one composer use Kumar Sanu since it seems everyone else has forgotten about him. His performance here is restrained and enlightened by the fact that we haven’t heard him much. An instrumental of the song appears later in the soundtrack.

Dil Sunta Hai” is sung twice, unsurprisingly, by Anuradha Paudwal and then by

Abhijeet. The most uninspiring aspect of this song is its title and lyrics. The dil songs are becoming a tad bit boring and the rest of the lyrics to the song are almost as predictable. Furthermore, the music is familiar on all grounds, whether it be T-Series or other composers (like Nadeem-Shravan, who used a similar tune for the opener in Footpath and the song does remind us of a few tunes from Raaz). Abhijeet’s version is preferable and in fact, could arguably be termed as the best song of the soundtrack. Of the two versions, his rendition has more melody and is bound to be what remains in the listener’s memory.

There is something about “Kabhi Kabhi Koi Chehra” that makes it sound familiar. I guess that’s an understatement coming from a T-Series soundtrack. In any case, the pacy “Kabhi Kabhi Koi Chehra” sung by Babul Supriyo and Anuradha Paudwal is passable but feet tapping without breaking any new grounds whatsoever.

Rafta Rafta” is the almost obligatory cabaret number. Sung by Sunidhi Chauhan (even that seems to be obligatory nowadays) and music composer himself Daboo Malik. Daboo is starting to sound a lot like his brother. Overall, this song has an actual detailed component of fast well-composed dance music but its lyrics by Sanjay Chhel are nothing unique, at all and place an obstacle for it to rise above anything else than an onscreen dance number.

As bland as “Rafta Rafta” is, the title track, titled “Wrong Number” is not much different. This is more than likely because it is sung by the same duo as the previous song, Sunidhi Chauhan and Daboo Malik. The song is predominantly filled with dialogue rather than singing and remains situational.

The soundtrack ends with “Kal Hum Jis Se”, which repeats the duo in the title track, Anuradha Paudwal and Kumar Sanu. The song is nothing more than a variation of the opening track, “Jab Tak Tum, Samne Rahoge”, but is once again a melodious tune that can please its listeners looking for a soft romantic number. Again Kumar Sanu is pleasant as is his pairing with Anuradha Paudwal.

In essence, Tumse Milke Wrong Number is enjoyably passable for what its worth. While most of the songs are far from path breaking, they’re above and beyond the rest in the entertaining department and melodious enough to keep their listener’s attention. While nothing on the soundtrack is meant to leave a long lasting impression but it serves as time pass listening without having you say, “Tumse Milke… Wrong Soundtrack!”
