After experiencing a year of tremendous success both in the fields of movies and music, Bollywood failed to witness that great of a start to the New Year. Less than a handful of music albums were appreciated and an even lesser number of films were given recognition. Amidst this dry period, couple of movies and albums have generated a buzz. One such movie is Reema Kagti’s Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. starring a host of talented actors and actresses. The music album can turn out to be one of the best soundtracks of 2007. The duo of Vishal-Shekhar once again showcases their versatility as music composers and with lyrics penned by Javed Akhtar one surely expects some great music.
Sajanaji starts off the album in the right direction. It is a fun, funky and fresh track. Fun and funky in the sense that it pumps up your energy from the word go and the song will definitely force you to get your groove on. It is fresh because it gives way to a new kind of music that is truly original.
Jaane Hai Woh Kahan keeps going in the right direction. If the first track got your groove on, then this track will sway you away into a world of romance. It is a slow and ear pleasing track that will win the hearts of many youngsters. The subtle vocals of Shaan and Shreya Ghoshal add to the sweetness of the song and help to set the right mood.
Albela Albela keeps on trotting in the right path. This track once again pumps up your energy and brings the party to town. Vishal Dadlani, from ‘Dhoom Again’ fame, joins Shankar Madhavan and provides the much needed energetic and strong vocals that this song deserves.
Halka Halka keeps moving on the right path. The track ropes in pop singer Neeraj Sridhar from Bombay Vikings who sings a youthful and enjoyable song. A very pleasant and sweet love song with equally sweet lyrics that will make you hit the repeat button several times. The remix version is a faster paced piece.
Pyar Ki Kahani keeps the positive line moving the right direction. It is a tango number that brings together the amazing vocals of Sunidhi Chauhan and Gayartri Iyer who sing their hearts out. The Spanish guitars and rhythms create the perfect romantic mood. A unique track overall.
Hath Dhoro Niye Chalo is the final track of this soundtrack and brings us to the end of the path. It is an innovative and creative instrumental track with couple of Bengali lines mixed into it. The more one listen to this track, the more it grows on them.
Vishal-Shekhar have proven their capability as music composers time and again with successful soundtracks from Jhankaar Beats, Dus and I See You. This latest offering from the duo gets added to the list. Honeymoon Travels Pvt. Ltd. gives us six refreshing tracks and each one is a sure fine winner. The duo can truly be called the music composers of this generation, giving us some innovative melodies, introducing different styles of music and bringing together a team of talented artists.
