||Hoshwalon Ko Khabar Kya
A subtle, but melodious ghazal likely
overlooked by most in this patriotic saga.
||Is Deewane Ladke Ko
||Aamir Khan, Alka Yagnik
spends a life-time trying to explain the meaning of love to Ajay Singh Rathod. Very peppy
and pleasant music by Jatin-Lalit.
||Meri Duniya Hai
||Sonu Nigam, Kavita Krishnamurthy
Musical respite in this Sanjay Dutt
gangster drama when the don and his gorgeous bride sing a love duet on their honeymoon.
Sonu Nigam's voice gets better by the minute and nice to have Kavita back.
||Sukhwindara Singh, Alka Yagnik
I know one of my 'relatives' is
going to be very happy with this song making the list. "Why not higher," I can
see her asking already. It is a vote-based poll Gramps. Not my fault.
||Kehna Hai Tumse
||Udit Narayan, Hema Sardesai
Did you notice the gorgeous
Kashmiri locales in this post-interval tune from Mann?
||Khali Dil Nahin
||Alka Yagnik, Hans Raj Hans
||Nusrat Fateh Ali
An amazing Urdu and Punjabi
love duet without verbal diorhhea in the form of lyrics. Hallelujah!
||Sabki Baaratein Aayee
So the chances of a girl like
Urmila being proposal-less are remote, but this sad yet funky tune was an Anu Malik
||Hum Saath Saath Hain
||Hariharan, Anuradha Paudwal, Kumar Sanu,
Pray together. Eat together.
Stay together. Good idea, but only if the other songs of Hum Saath Saath Hain were as
great as this one. Who wants to spend all their time with family singing ABCDEF... to each
other all the time?
Sushmita Sen does a Babe No.1
dance routine on the screen and Alka makes sure the vocals match.
||Raat Ki Daldal
There is a sense of looming
danger listening to this song. Watching the subsequent, gruesome and graphic visuals in
the movie highlight the brilliance and perfection of the Rahman tune.
