There was a time in the late 1980s and early 1990s during
which Anand-Milind were counted among the top music directors. After scoring some
unforgettable tunes in such films as Qayamat Se Qayamat Tak, Baaghi, Dil, and Suhaag
just to name a few, the duo went downhill. They hardly came up with a good
album, offering only one or two good tracks in an album. But with Hogi Pyar Ki Jeet (HPKJ)
Anand-Milind prove they still have the talent, and can still come up with a
Tere Pyar Mein Main will have you humming the tune
right after the first listen. Jaspinder Nirula and Roopkumar
Rathod are good choices for this song. Both the singers go through the song with
ease. The song has a slight rural touch to it, which makes it sounds better.
Kaun Hai Woh is an infectious tune with a western
feel. Hema Sardesai and Udit Narayan render the song
wonderfully. The soft yet fast paced beats are very effective. The song will probably go
down better with the younger generation.
Udit Narayan has two solos, Dil Deewana Kehta Hai
and Karlo Karlo Mera Aitbar. Udit is likeable as
always in both songs. The former has a better chance of becoming popular due to its
foot-tapping rhythm. The latter is more sentimental than the former, Sameers lyrics
are well penned here.
Aa Gaye Din Sanam can also qualify as the title song
of the album. Abhijeet, Jaspinder Nirula, Sonu Nigam,
and Hema Sardesai team up to render this medium paced number. The song has the two lead
pairs (Ajay Devgan and Arshad
Warsi opposite Neha and Mayuri Kango respectively) vowing that their love
The other group song, Lakhon Aashiq Mar Jaate sung
by Udit Narayan, Abhijeet, Alka Yagnik, and Jaspinder Nirula, is filled with more masti
than Aa Gaye Din Sanam. The singers pass through this one with ease
The only bad apple A-M come up with for this album is Main
Hoon Tere Pyar Mein which is sung by Anuradha Paudwal.
It doesnt take a genius to figure out that the beats lifted straight from Enigma,
which has become a good source of inspiration for hindi music directors such
as Anand Raaj Anand (Pyar Kiya To Nibhana from Major
Saab) and Viju Shah (the background music for the dialogue in Vishwatma).
Taalon Mein Nainital is a fun song and easily
likeable if you dont pay much attention to the lyrics. Sonu Nigam and Alka Yagnik
sound enthusiastic and refreshing. The beats are somewhat different yet very good.
HPKJ is a must buy for any hindi music fan in my opinion. Lets just hope the film is
as good as the music. Kudos to Anand-Milind for finally coming up with a good album.
