Yeh Khula Aasmaan

Film: 'Yeh Khula Aasmaan'; Music Director: Anand-Milind; Lyricist: Ravi Chopra; Singers: Kunal Ganjawalla, Gayatri Ganjawalla, Soham Chakraborty, Suresh Wadekar, Swapnil Bandodkar, Raghubir Yadav and Amey Date.

There are times when you're served with an overdose of songs in an album. But it is rare that you come across a soundtrack that doesn't have enough on the platter to keep you hooked. This is the basic problem with the music album of 'Yeh Khula Aasman', which has just four original tracks. The songs are good, but not enough in number to make you buy the album.

The album starts on an interesting note with the title track 'Har ghadi'. The listeners are greeted by the sound of violin and the magic of Kunal Ganjawalla's voice lifts up your mood. The aim of the song is to explain the meaning of life. The composition is simple, yet interesting, but the lyrics leave a lasting effect on the listener.

Next on the playlist is 'Tum mile', a very old-school romantic number. In times when recent songs like 'Pani da rang' and 'Raabta' are hitting the top of the charts, this one seems like a midget. It's a sweet song but has been given a simplistic treatment by the musical duo of Anand-Milind. Singers Gayatri and Soham have done a decent job with the vocals, but the song fails to grow on you despite being heard more than once.

Suresh Wadekar changes your mood with 'Aari aari'. It is an absolute delight to the ears. The lullaby has a nice composition and is beautifully woven around emotional lyrics by Ravi Chopra. However, midway through the song, Swapnil Bandodkar takes over Wadekar and that disturbs the continuity. Perhaps he could have just been given a separate version of the same track.

Up next is 'Ur fur kar' crooned by Raghubir Yadav. Phrases like 'Chal nikal ghar se pecha lada le, zindagi bhi patang hai uda le' instantly bring a grin on your face. It's the best offering of the album and its local touch is fresh and inspiring.

'Har ghadi (Shukriya Zindagi)' is not very different from the title track, but is better than the original. It's a slower version and the musicians have done a good job with this one. Ganjawalla charms you once more.

Lastly, 'Zindagi bhi patang hai' rounds up the soundtrack where the tempo of 'Ur fur kar' is taken down to inspire you more and fight the challenges in life. However, it comes nowhere close to the latter.

As a whole, the music album of 'Yeh Khula Aaasman' had a lot of potential, but dearth of songs kill the soundtrack. This one doesn't give you the option of being choosy; maybe just two more good tracks and this could have become a hit.
