With so many factors going in the movie's favor, it is imperative that expectations are high from ' Kyon Ki '.
The title song ' Kyon Ki ' is all it takes to go for the album. An instantly catchy number with a strong base of melody, it has Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik coming up with one of their best duets ever. This track should go down as one of the most memorable song sung by the lead singer pair and has everything in it to be a major success. Sameer's lyrics yet again capture the feeling of love through simple and subtle lyrics without getting heavy at all. Though the lyrics have a different theme and the music is different too, somehow the song manages to create a similar effect as ' Tumse Milkar Na Jaane Kyon ' from ' Pyaar Jhukta Nain ', that was composed a couple of decades back and worked due to simple lyrics and sheer honest melody!
Even before the album was released, the song had managed to create immense hype around the movie. Now with almost half the album comprising of various versions of this track, things should only be better for ' Kyon Ki '. First comes an adlip version by Alka that seems to have been created for some intense soul stirring moments in the film. Alka's vocals are a good mix of pain and sadness but still attempt at conveying some hope. Udit-Alka get together for a duet of the same song with an Alka adlip and such is the sweetness of the song that it can be heard repeatedly.
Final and the fourth version of the song is again a duet this time with Udit Narayan and newcomer Radha. She gets a wonderful opportunity to display her talent as it is a kind of number that relies more on vocals rather than any beats and heavy music, which normally camouflage any shortcoming in a singer's voice. Though she is good, one tends to compare it with Alka version and needless to say, Radha has some way to go. Nevertheless, a fine beginning for her!
A sure shot hit in the making is ' Dil Keh Raha Hai ' that is a kind of number that always works with Salman's image of a lover boy. One can already imagine girls swooning and drooling all over Salman when this song is played due to great rhythm and melody. A kind of track that was once sung by Kamaal Khan for Salman, this one has Kunal Ganjawala behind the mike who sings this foot tapping track in his own inimitable way without tending to go overboard with his 'now-famous' style of singing. Lyrics start off simple only to end up with something as unconventional as ' Tera Jism Odh Loon ', without sounding vulgar or making the listener feel awkward. A foot tapping number, it also appears in a remix version , which is a faster version of the original. The song is fine but one would still prefer to hear a much mellowed & slower version that has romance written all over it.
In the same mode as the title song comes ' Dil Ke Badle Sanam ' that is, as the lyrics suggest, yet another love song. With Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik returning back to the scene in this song, one can see another likeable romantic track. There is nothing extraordinary or original about this Himesh Reshammiya tune, but still it is a conventional harmless track that can be enjoyed while it is played.
Kailash Kher sings the opening lines of ' Jhatka Maare ' that soon gets into the ' dupatta ' mode, courtesy Udit Narayan's entry who croons Sameer's lyrics. This time around the ' dupatta ' is guilty of firing as the lyrics go as ' Goli Maare Tera Dupatta '. The number appears to be a fun 'ched-chaad' track set in a celebration mode and has a rustic appeal. The number is of a kind that should appeal in cities but should be a major winner in interiors where there are Salman fans in millions. A rhythmic foot tapping track by Udit Narayan and Shaan, it should light up the proceedings in the movie.
' Aa Je Le Ik Pal Mein Sau Janam ' is the final track of the album and is in fact the best track of the album while even surpassing the title song. Extremely lively and sung well, it has so much that belongs to Rajesh Roshan style of music. From singing of Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik [who seem to be starting from exactly where they left the title song of KNPH] to lyrics by Sanjay Chhel to the beats to the trademark lively atmosphere that a Rajesh Roshan tune creates, everything fits in so well into Rajesh Roshan mould! All in all, a winner that adds on one more reason to go for Kyon Ki .
' Kyon Ki ' is a nice love album that has a longing effect instead of being of a kind that make news for a few weeks and then vanish from the scene. An album completely belonging to Udit Narayan and Alka Yagnik, it can be easily added on to the long list of Himesh Reshammiya, Sameer and Salman Khan hits.
