In the mood for romance?

Sukanya Verma | June 21, 2004 12:00 IST

Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi in Kyun! Ho Gaya Naa...Kyun! Ho Gaya Naa... celebrates love. At least that's the impression you get after listening to the music of Sameer Karnik's directorial debut starring Amitabh Bachchan, Aishwarya Rai and Vivek Oberoi.

Composer trio Shankar-Ehsaan-Loy score a winner in Kyun! Ho Gaya Naa... with their mellifluous and stylish compositions.

The most challenging aspect of songwriting is presenting the same idea, thought and emotion differently without sounding repetitive. And lyricist Javed Akhtar is a master of the art. So if you enjoyed the argument in Jaane kyon (Dil Chahta Hai) or Agar mein kahoon (Lakshya), then Pyaar mein sau uljhanein will win your heart instantly. This upbeat ditty with its 'fall in love' versus 'avoid love' theme and a hint of English folk dance beats should have no problem climbing the popularity charts.

Foot-tapping aptly sums the second track, No no, Kyun! ho gaya na...!

Aao naa is a tender melody flush with romance and poetry. It is also easily one of the best songs of the soundtrack. 

The peppy Main hoon zooms off to a flying start and maintains its rocking tempo throughout. Lively singing by Shaan and Sunidhi Chauhan adds to the number's vivacity. 

Baat samjha karo is another zestful piece.

The defining quality of all the songs is their enthusiasm.

The album wraps up on a mellow note with Shankar Mahadevan's gentle rendition of Dheere dheere.

Come to think of it, Kyun! Ho Gaya Naa...'s music is like the weather in Mumbai right now -- fresh, breezy and romantic.
