Khauff is said to be a suspense thriller. Normally in suspense
thrillers, music doesnt play a pivotal role, except the background score maybe.
Though Gupt is the only film I can think of recently in this
genre that had brilliant music, the same cant be said for Khauff. The soundtrack has
a couple of songs that grab your attention, but dont expect anything more.
Oh Gori Gori is a medium-fast paced number sung by Kumar
Sanu. The best thing about the song other than the catchy beats, is Kumar Sanu.
He sounds so different, hes not his usual nasal self in this song. He
reminds you of his songs from the early 90s. That was when he was a treat to the
ears, since the last couple of years hes more of a threat to the ears.
Sajid-Wajid have composed one song for Khauff, and thats probably the best song of
the album. Raja Ki Qaid Mein sung by Sukhwinder
Singh and Jaspinder Nirula sounds like the theme song of the
movie. Sukhwinder just breezes through the song. Sajid-Wajid are successful in creating a
song thats catchy, yet that would fit into the movie easily.
Nateeja Hamari Mohabbat Ka is sung by Kumar Sanu and
Alka Yagnik. The song is just plane silly. Anu Malik has lifted the
entire tune from the Mission Impossible theme. Very creative Mr. Malik, glad to see
youre up to your old tricks again.
Hai Hai Yeh Hawaa can best pass by as a middle of
the night song, where the heros and heroines hormones are beginning to kick
in. Vinod Rathod fits in okay, but Anuradha Paudwal is
just awful. She doesnt fit in this type of song already.
Saiyan More Saiyan sung by Alka Yagnik, Sapna
Awasthi, and Shankar Mahadevan is no great shakes, to put it in
cliched terms. The singers do a competent job on their part, but the lyrics just ruin
Finally we have the much talked about Daler Mehndi song, where he does a
guest appearance in movie along with Raveena Tandon. Nach Baby Nach Kudi
also features Asha Bhosale with Daler Mehndi, and the two are simply
awesome together. The song has a slightly slower beat than the usual Daler Mehndi songs,
but its catchy nonetheless.
Khauff is not a must-buy, but if you buy most Hindi film soundtracks its a good
addition to your collection for a couple of the songs.
