Yakeen is indeed another Priyanka Chopra film! There certainly hasn’t been a dearth of those for the growing actress. And given her multitude of releases it’s not surprising that she is featuring with Arjun Rampal for a second time after the disastrous Asambhav. The former wasn’t as bad musically but this time Himesh Reshammiya a.k.a. typical but likable has been roped in for his

jhankaar beats and romantic compositions.

Songs don’t get simpler than “Tune Mujhko”, sung by the dependable Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik. The song literally screams of Reshammiya’s ear friendly composition and it serves its purpose in opening up the soundtrack. Again, a very listenable song but where is the life after that? (Especially a concern considering Mr. Reshammiya is composing other soundtracks releasing at the same time with very similar music).

The Narayan-Yagnik duet team up for round two of a similar composition in lyricist

Sameer’s uninspired “Meri Aankhon Mein”. Barring a few saxophone interludes and the piano there is little to distinguish it from the first song (barring of course, Sameer’s uninspired lyrics). But the song is probably bound to keep your attention longer than the opener. An instrumental of the song follows later on in the soundtrack.

The title track attempts to change the pace a little as Reshammiya enlists in his favorite Shaan to verbalize the lyrics differently as he does in “Bhoolna Nahin”. Shaan is apt in his rendition of what is obvious the theme track. A decent composition one certainly can’t imagine it being an attention grabber. Sunidhi Chauhan sings the second version and is just as apt in her rendition. And of course, a third slower version must also follow to provide the filler.

Sonu Nigam and Shreya join in for the slower duet, “Tu Hi”, a very T-Series kind of song. The song is much slower than the first two and is obviously trying to garner some type of emotion from its listener. There’s not much in it to do so, however, leaving the listener to hit skip faster than expected.

It’s a flashback to the eighties in “Chehra Tera”, what is probably the nicest song on the soundtrack. Himesh changes gears from his routine sound to bring us a song familiar to the likes of “Tere Naam”. Certain portions are better than your average run of the mill and are pleasing to the ear. Alka and Sonu are refreshing in the romantic ditty.

The music for Yakeen is nothing if not ordinary. Portions are catchy but overall there are no surprises and ultimately nothing to make you want to buy the soundtrack immediately. Those who are into the three day listenable type of soundtrack may get into Yakeen otherwise this time-pass score is better left on the pass section.
