|Saat Rang Ke Sapne
Reviewed by Sunder
Saat Rang Ke Sapne is being touted as a
dream-like journey through colorful landscapes, and colorful parties in exotic deserts.
The song snippets suggest more than the 7 basic colors, and the music is in tune with the
rustic beat and mood.
The opener, Aati Hai to Chal, is nice catchy number sung with a lot of life by Babul Supriyo and Alka Yagnik. This is the song that will feature among the chart-toppers. Babul Supriyo sings two other duets, Dilon Ka Haal with new singer Priya, and Ba Ba Batao Na with Alka Yagnik. Among these duets, Ba Ba Batao Na stands out for its stark resemblance to tunes from the 60s by Rafi.
The title song Saat Rang Ke Sapne is also a very catchy tune, sung by Alka Yagnik (a good album for her) and M G Sreekumar (remember Gardish, Kabhi Na Kabhi, Muskurahat etc). Looks like he is a Priydarshan favorite. The album also features Udit Narayan in the only solo number - Jhoothi Jhoothi - a playful and yet semi-serious tune.
But the best number goes to Kavita Krishnamurthy who does wonders with Mujh Pe Bhi Jawaani ... A rustic tune, with a lively feel makes this song stand out in an album of above average numbers. Kunal supports with a line or two in this otherwise Kavita solo.
For all the goods, the album misses an absolute chartbuster - and is fairly slow to catch on to the ears. The lyrics by Sameer without being brilliant measure upto the expectations. The music is uniformly good, and runs a common thread between the songs. If the film catches on, this set of songs will be more than mere chartbusters.
