Film: "Raaz 3"; Music Director: Jeet Ganguly; Lyricists: Sanjay Masoomm and Kumaar; Singers: Shreya Ghoshal, Zubeen Garg, KK, Sonu Nigam, Javed Ali, and Shafqat Amanat Ali Khan, Rating: **

Sequels have not enjoyed a great deal of success at the box office. Let's hope "Raaz 3" doesn't bite the dust and manages to click with the audience. The soundtrack of the film has six songs penned by Sanjay Masoomm and Kumaar, composed by Jeet Ganguly and crooned by some fine singers.

The album kicks off with Javed Ali's soulful voice in "Deewana kar raha hai", which has an Arabic feel to it. It has resemblance to composition of Arabic track "Ana law azeto" sung by Egyptian singer Mohamed Hamaki. There is nothing too great about the track in terms of words or music. It fails to give a good start to the soundtrack.

raaz 3Next up is "Zindagi se", which has the melodious Pakistani singer Amanat Ali">Shafqat Amanat Ali's voice, who has given many hits in Bollywood. However, the composition fails to capitalise on his voice and the song fails to make an impact on you. There are intervals where the piano attracts you, but overall it is dismal.

A ray of hope comes with "Rafta rafta" by KK and finally one gets to hear a song that manages to deliver. Slow and soothing number with simple lyrics and KK's voice captivates listeners. However, nothing too great about the composition and it is solely the singer's voice that carries the song on its shoulder.

"Oh my love" follows it, a Hinglish (Hindi-English) romantic number sung by Sonu Nigam and Shreya Ghosal. The composition is really good but ordinary lyrics ruin the song. The high point of the song is the chorus, which is a bit enjoyable.

Next on the playlist is "Kya raaz hai" and the composer has tried hard to make it peppy with some fine beats. Shreya Ghoshal and Zubben Garg have done a decent job in the vocals but despite the good tune, the song fails to grow on you.

"Khayalon mein" rounds up the album and Shreya has crooned the song really well. It provides the listener with a happy ending. It manages to cheer up the listeners at last.

Vishesh Films has been doling out chartbusters for a very long time and one wonders how they came up with such a sad album.

The soundtrack of "Raaz 3" leaves a big blot on their musical taste and leaves a big question mark on what went wrong here?

The composition is the reason. Bhatts could have easily signed Pritam or Sahrib-Toshi for Raaz 3. Raaz 2 was way better with tracks like Maahi, O Jaana, Soniyo. I find only Khayalon mein worth listening in Raaz 3 album. It's sad with a great lineup of singer with variety the album suffers for dismal music & lyrics. It lacks the punch...
